Judging alpha/beta footage really shows your intelligence, sorry.

Uh it is alpha footage more than likely... or very freaking early beta. What did you expect?

Meanwhile the guy is also making it worse than it really is by a number of methods. For one he is clearly playing at a low resolution he then upscaled when he created the video, which is why the text is so damn fuzzy for example. Second he plays like a retard and wastes time going up and down menus over and over. I would really love to see his graphics settings because they have already released in game SC's that look better than his game does by a crap ton, like I said, he is already playing low res upscaled so who knows what else he did to make it look as bad as possible.

@pyrodactyl Sorry if it bothers you but history is not kind with this situation. There have been multiple cases where a company though that doing "The MMO Version" was the next step but failed to realize the gravity of the project and ended up damaging or even running themselves out of business.

MMO systems are some of the most expensive and intensive in the industry. The industry itself is littered with the corpses of a lot of companies and projects some of which seem better than what was shown. Although Bethesda did shield themselves from this project it is still a tremendous sink of time and money that could have been used to make *drum roll* Elder Scrolls 5.

Yeah I think the trick to making a successful MMORPG is to under budget it with a small team. You know? Don't overshoot your expectations and throw millions at it. Seem's like these companies only answer to trying to make an MMORPG successful is by throwing more money at it. But they need to throw less money and more soul. You can't have soul though if you're just doing it for a cash grab.

I don't really understand all of the bitching that is going on here. Do people here really think that the upcoming MMO will share the same graphical fidelity as the standard Elder Scrolls games (Skyrim)? Well, it probably won't. Stop being so ungrateful... people wanted an Elder Scrolls MMO, and so they got it.

Besides, this isn't even the final product.There still is time for improvements (Though,granted six months is not too far away.)

I know. Ungrateful? Be careful who you're calling ungrateful son, it makes you look incompetent.

If they can crank the graphics to the same quality as Guild Wars 2 and Tera before they release this game, then I might take a look at this. If they want me to spend time exploring their world, they better make it look pretty.

more people need to read this comment. I can't help but feel there's some fuckery afoot with this footage. There are totally screenshots that look better than this, but don't look sharp enough to be made outside of the game. For example all the pics from Game Informer and they have an interview about the engine here.
