I want to know how archery is going to work, is it going to be aim based or lock based.

This looks like it'll be amazing. As Words so verbally wondered, I'm also wondering how not just archery, but all ranged weaponry, will aim. To be honest, there's actually not much about yet. However, even if it turns out bad in gameplay, I'll play it if purely for the fluff.

Looks really good although trailers are always better than the game ;)

The only problem for me is the age of MMO's is well and truly dead in my eyes. I played WoW from release up until around 2 years ago and in that 5-6 year period dabbled in AoC, EVE, WAR and a couple of other whose names escape me and they were fun but the majority of players are too annoying for my liking and while I might give it a go I doubt I'd get dragged in to the game as much as it used to happen.

Still, it's elder scrolls and I'm sure even if it's full of annoying players (although this looks more "mature" than WoW (or at least current WoW - vanilla WoW was pretty raw) so might put some people off) it'll be full of lore to explore which is always nice in a game.

I'm trying to find a game that gives me the feeling WoW gave me, but every one I've come upon has found me drifting away from it after a month or two.

Don't touch this Rift knockoff with a bargepole. It has nothing to do with the Elder Scrolls lore-wise and will leave you bitter and disappointed. It lumps factions into bigger factions for no apparent reason other than to reduce the developer's workload, and the art style is reprehensible. Any friend of mine who touches this piece of shit loses my respect in an instant! This is MMO fandom abuse 101!

Bog standard tab-targeting. I guarantee it.

That I was loved for who I am
And missed the opportunity
To become a better man

How exactly is it a rift knock off?

How exactly were the factions lumped into bigger factions for no reason? Have you read the reasoning they've given on their website?

How do you know it has nothing to do with the Elder Scrolls lore wise? Have you played it in advance? No?

Then don't tell us that it sucks before you've even tried it. Don't tell us it has nothing to do with the lore. Don't tell us its a rift knock off without any proof that it is or not. We will form our own opinions when we play it. Its not like I have to tell you to be quiet so we can form our own opinions. Everyone else will do just that before they decide it sucks or not. I can guarantee that they will. Also, at least try it out when it comes out before you make an opinion on it. Don't just base it off of nothing, nothing, and more nothing.

Anyway, this looks pretty cool. Cant wait for it to come out.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

R.I.P. Uncle Lee. You will be greatly missed by us all. We will see each other again some day.
