I think they fixed the group finder, cause i found a PvP match using group finder in ESO within 5 minutes today, and a dungeon group within 10 minutes using it. As for WoW, good god, they dumbed the game down to the point that it just isn't fun anymore. Then again I was never into hardcore raiding, the game has very good raids, I'll admit that.I like the causalness of eso and content..wish it had some better group stuff tho. I think WoW declined immsensely in content BfA seemed thrown together...and raiding just isn't what it use to be.
Oof! And that was back in the days when other players could block your view in the clocktower. It's a little easier now that other players are just glowing balls.
The Charr got soooooo much hate at that JP🤣Oof! And that was back in the days when other players could block your view in the clocktower. It's a little easier now that other players are just glowing balls.
I have not really thought about it like that, but it does make sense. You know some of the lore, have knowledge about characters and similar understandings about the different universes it all takes place in. To make an MMO from scratch is also quite hard, so from a developing standpoint, it sure would be easier to have some anchors already set.Edit: Actually the choice of games in the headline here reinforces a thing I noticed about myself (and maybe others) over the years. It seems easier to stick with an MMO in a universe that existed before it. Aside from WoW we have Elder Scrolls, Star Wars, and Final Fantasy represented in the header. I wonder if anyone else has felt the same.
I love how players get a birthday present each year.I've been a Guild Wars (and 2) player since...2007?
I still remembered my Guild Wars character name for when I was trying to get access to my account. 'Shadow Ranger Dan', I was definitely a teenager when I made that.I remembered my WoW account dudeeee….My holy Pally is cool and good...hes only 328ilvl tho...and they nerfed holy dude...I left again some months ago, the Priest was definitely out healing me. Quirky Raid Progression for sure....Think I started on Uldir or something.
This is exactly, precisely why I sometimes play ESO.I play ESO more lately because it's easy for me to log in a couple times a week, go on a few story quests, and do my usual thieving route. There's a lot to do in ESO but its out of sight enough that I don't constantly feel the paralysis-of-choice effect.
m for raids in chat anymore when id like to
ESO is cool cause you can do any content, the game adjusts to your level, so you aren't locked into a quest chain. There's also no 500 hour cutscenes like in FF14 so that's a huge plus too. PvP is pretty awesome in the game, too. Also the combat is simple, they don't make you learn 20 different skills.This is exactly, precisely why I sometimes play ESO.
When it first came out, I wrote a review for the game over on Tom's Hardware. I was not kind. I even took to the ESO subreddit to savage the experience and defend my position on it. I tried it again, a year later, and encountered much of the same tragic underwhelming experience. I tried it a third time, with the same outcome.
The fourth time I came back to it, something seemed to have clicked. Either the content had been refined to a point of acceptable levels over time, the delves and dungeons amped up, the availability of quests and options and mods and all that got to that magical Goldilocks level of "juuuuust right", and I played through to the end of the storyline and into a second run-through.
ESO has really earned it's place as a good go-to for a nice, low intensity dip into an MMO. It's not outstanding, so don't go looking for a triple-A experience, but it's a deeply reliable go-to when you're experiencing that periodic ennui that comes with being in-between really stellar games and not knowing what you should play. It's gone from gas station sushi to McDonald's at worst, a Five Guys at best - a miserable experience into a reliable stand-by that isn't the absolute best, but you know what to expect and can reliably predict your experience will be decent to fine with the occasional "oh, nice". It's a worthy credit for making a comeback and keeping at it.
I think ESO has good endgame. There many trials I am still unable to do in Veteran (as I don't yet know the mechanics), and that doesnt even include trying to do Veteran runs on Hardcore mode. I have yet to complete Maelstrom on Veteran. I haven't reached Emperor on PVP. There is plenty in the endgame to strive for.But eso has no end game hardly lol...WoW is fun but we never see spam for raids in chat anymore when id like to raid and heal.
