The Elder Scrolls series is absolutely not famed for rich story telling. If anything the storytelling telling is generally considered quite poor and the characters pretty forgettable.

What it is famed for is dropping you in a fantastic open world were you can go anywhere and do anything. As you say, a traditional MMORPG, (like wot they have made), has to be linear so unfortunately you loose what makes the series great.
I always found the thief guild and assassin guild quest lines to be the most interesting in Elder Scrolls games.

Yep, get to try out the pre-order and Imperial package stuff.

We also get a monkey for taking part. I'm not sure I actually want a monkey. I'd prefer to horse, to be honest.

There's only really 2 quests that stick vividly in my mind out the whole series. Which isn't very good out of 300+ hours play if you add it all up.

I thought the visit to the afterlife in Skyrim was a decent mission, as well as the Dark Brotherhood missions.

So did anyone get this then? I bought it and didn't get a chance to pay the beta. I'm really liking it, it plays more like an Elder Scrolls game than a MMO though which I like but my gf doesn't.

I didn't get this myself but about half a dozen of my old MMO friends are playing, so I'm keeping tabs on what they think of it. If they're still playing in a month or so I might just jump in as well.

I picked it up. Can't say I'm hugely enjoying it - it all just seems too disjointed for my liking. Saying that, I hated WoW to begin with and have been addicted to it for 6 years, so I'll stick with it for a while - at least until the end of my first month.

Now all they need to do is stop bringing the server down during peak hours for multiple hours of down time. Granted, having one server farm for everyone outside the US is going to make that challenging, but at least they should have some consideration for the vast majority of players who will be in Europe and move it a bit earlier or later.

Yep, had it on pre-order and was due for three days head start but had a family emergency so haven't had much time to get stuck back in again. All my guild are playing though and thoroughly enjoying it.

Sorry to hear that. Hope things improve for you and your family if they haven't already.

I haven't gone through it a lot myself, played it a little and I'm enjoying but it's just I don't have the time to put into it yet. It might just be a weekend game for me.

Yeah thats the problem we had on EQ, because it was a US based server, it always came down during European play time or worse raid time.

Aww thank you KC. Things have stabilised but we're playing a waiting game atm and I'm now 10 days behind on things at work so it's mental trying to catch up!
Am hoping I'll get a bit of a chance of a run out at tESO this weekend.
