All I want to see is that sweet, sweet 60.

The framerate is not really an issue on the 360 version at all and neither are the load times. Some areas just look plain ugly and the game suffers from some terrible textures. If they added new high res textures and better lighting, that would be far better than getting a slightly smoother version of the game that looked just as bad, only now you're sitting up even closer to the screen and can start counting the pixels.

Yeah it's not really an issue but i still prefer a solid 60 fps. For me it's just a question of comfort really. And the screen tearing on the 360 version is terribad. And being able to play in 1080p is a big big bonus.


Really, all I want is 60fps and some better lighting and shadows. If it can do that satisfactorily, I'll be totally up for double-dipping.

I bought it day one on 360, and I've only played about an hour. I think I just needed to play it to get the hype out of my system. Now I've gotten that out of the way, I'll be happy to settle in with the PC version.

Also, hooray for having a brand new GTX780 system. It means I can now look forward to things like this and not feel excluded.

Same here, bought the 360 version day one, played about 10 hours, but then stopped (due to other stuff, infamous, warhammer painting and playing) but i really look forward to a smoother and overall beter experience on the pc.

Also i wonder if a better framerate is all that we're gonna get, then why did it take a month for the pc version to come out. If it was the lead platform, you would think it be on the same day as the console versions, right?

Is happening today? omg, so excited! Can't wait to see if it looks any better and just hope they delivered a solid performance!
Or this could just be an enormous letdown ofc.

i'm enjoying the game actually, and i didn't like skyrim or morrowind. I'm playing it as an mmo where i have a lot more freedom in what i do and when and how i do it. Also the combat isn't that great, but it's a real breath of fresh air in the mmo space in my opinion.

Well i created a new character today. a woodelf nightblade, been playing as an archer and having loads more fun with the combat. I've even done things that i couldn't clear with my "tank". Groups of 3 mobs are no problem now, with my other character it was a real pain in the ass.

Let's hope the fun keeps up.

It seems like because of the first person view being "the way to play this" they should make it so tanks have an AOE taunt or something.

Or maybe this game isn't intended to be trinity. I don't know. Sounds like it's not balanced for group content, though.

First person view preferred play is a first for an MMO technically so it is an interesting concept but they have to balance the game around that play style and since the first person view came in later I know for a fact this game was not built from the ground up with it in mind.

it's loosely based on a trinity, you have tanks/dps/healers. But the classes them selves are very much "do whatever the hell you want" it's just all over the place. I don't hate that, but i hate the fact that it seems hard to follow a straight path to become something you want to be.

The game would greatly benefit from FOV options, i don't really get bothered by FOV stuff, but in this game you need to be able to be aware of your surroundings, especially as a tank or healer. Playing the game in third person just doesn't feel right at all and isn't a real solution to the problem at hand. And indeed the game wasn't built with the first person view in mind, but then again the third person view is messed up too :D

I'm a fan of trinity style games, i like knowing my role in an mmo, i hated guildwars é because of the fact that there was no trinity, it may seem innovative but if it's done in a wrong way it really messes up things. I came into this as: hell yes i'll be tank with "realtime" combat, but then i got burned.

I don't know, maybe i should give the game another chance with another type of class, maybe i'll try a character with a bow. I'm just so bummed out because i'm so into the world and crafting side of things and the combat is letting me down so hard.

Yeah you might wanna keep going and see if you unlock some better abilities as you go along. Early game tanking is never especially good.

Though trying to keep track of 6+ mobs and the allies they are trying to nibble the knees off of must suck in first person...

yeah it really does suck. There was a fight in an earlier quest where i had to kill this mob who could drain health from you and then spawn 4 orbs. If you let one of those orbs reach her, she gets full health again. But keeping track of the orbs in first person is just impossible. I had to switch to third person, but then you lose all sense of depth in the combat, it's really hard to tell if you're actually hitting an enemy. And your character feels very disconnected from the actual world. it's hard to describe really.

Combat has never really been a strongpoint in an ES game (although skyrim improved alot) but in an MMO you spend alot of time in combat. So the feeling has to be right. I can only imagine what the pvp feels like. It's a real shame though, cause i like the other stuff in the game, the fact you are exploring a world instead of going from quest hub to quest hub feels great in an mmo nowadays. I really like the crafting also. A reall bummer about the combat imo. :(

And boy did it go wroooong. I've been playing tanks in mmo's for quite a while now so i think i know what i'm doing. Something in ESO just feels very off about the combat. Especially in group combat and in pulls of more than 2 mobs things get very chaotic.

I'm a level 12 dragonknight with sword and board playstyle and have only 1 aggropull ability and it's a single target one at that. In that dungeon i've had pull of 6+ mobs at several times. But no way to get those to focus on me in a consistant manner.

Plus fighting in first person mode you lose a lot of what's going on around you, and in third person mode everything just feels weird, very very weird. The attack cones and things you have to block/interrupt are very unclear.

I don't know man, i never was a fan of the combat but the world and the crafting kind of kept me playing, but since i really want to tank, the combat engine has to work properly. i just get the feeling the combat was not made to be played in a group.
