Zenimax has finally lifted their NDA in full, previously it was lifted for only specific media outlets, but as of today the beta/alpha players of ESO can express their opinion on the state of the game however they see fit, this seems to include video coverage and screenshots. Hopefully this starts a respectful exchange of ideas that assist Zenimax/Bethesda in beginning to work on numerous issues that the community has been unable to properly convey as problems.
Zenimax lifts NDA for all players
Zero chance the end game is going to be interesting, same problem pretty much every single mmo other than Everquest and WoW have had, you need endgame raiding to attract the raiders, and you need the raiders as a basis for your community keeping casuals interested.
From the few hours I played it seemed like Oblivion with a less interesting story, worse combat, completely arbitrary factions that make no sense from what we know about the Elder Scrolls universe, and gameplay that seems to revolve around spending 75% of your time opening containers with bad items in them.
If that sounds like it's worth paying up front plus a monthly subscription, well good luck and have fun.
I've only heard bad things from my friends that played the beta. I just hear it's a broken mess. Sounds like it's more broken than most loud betas (betas that a lot of people know about) that come out these days.
People are making it seem dire, but I'm not sure how much of that is the game, because its a beta, or people just wanting it to fail.
So, we'll see I guess. I would like to see an objective write up of someones experience with it, though.
