Game's great,..the forums not so much
20 June 2016 | by WhiskeyRiver-AZSee all my reviews

The community forums for ESO are horrible.They are tantamount to a Nazi Regime.And this is the truth. I have been playing ESO since the first betas,and been in the forums as long. Many people go there for information,and to connect with other players. However,Zenimax seems to have created a place where you cannot speak about many things,or you will be banned from the site. It is hard at times what to know you are allowed to speak about and what you had better not speak about.The lines have blurred and the moderators are now getting personal about who they allow to stay and who they get rid of. At the moment,the entire community is up in arms about the recent banning of players who downloaded a cheat program.They were permabanned,but now are allowed to return,which goes against the terms of service that Zenimax makes you agree to when you start playing. There were many threads opened in the forums,but were shut down by the moderators.Then,..they created one to allow people to talk about it,but in the first post told you that it was against forum rules to talk about the topic,or the actions taken for it. People were angry,and some of us posted reflecting our feelings.I was one of them.Suddenly,I was banned from the site,permanently,and many other members had their comments removed.. So,at this time there are rampant cheaters in the PvP area of the game,and Zenimax has allowed this. In the end,if you want to join their forum,you had better be very careful what you say and what you talk about,or who you talk about. **About the game itself.** I played in the first betas and continue to do,so even now. I read here that someone said that you can only explore to find other quests.That all you can do is quest or grind.This isn't true at all. Also it was said that ESO is too linear,that you are led through each quest.This also isn't true.There are zones you have to get through before you can get to others,sure,but they are factioned zones.Meaning that you start on one faction,and finish the main quest there,and then are send to a different faction to do the main quest there,until you have done all three factions.Once you have done all three factions you have full run of the entire map. **Very soon you will be able to have access to the whole map from the beginning.They are changing this and making it wide open to explore and quest. In ESO many creatures and monsters you kill drop very good gear,as well as low level plain things.Bosses always have something worth getting when you kill them. The people who gripe a lot about not getting stuff from bosses,etc,that ESO doesn't give you any good gear or anything are usually PvP players who constantly find fault with the game.Fair,.ESO wasn't built around PvP and they really don't have a lot to do,but they DO get the very best gear in the game.Thing is,I have never felt the need for that gear,as I can craft my own gear and improve it until it is Legendary. You can explore every facet of each zone as you please.There are some small problems with the game,there always with games this big. And personally,I think it is a finer game than the ones mentioned in the other reviews. WoW,and the rest.I have played World of Warcraft for a long time,but since playing ESO,it feels quite dated and clunky now. It really is an awesome game and the output of the funds to purchase the basic game is worth it.You then can either subscribe and have infinite slotted crafting bags,added XP,and 1500 crowns given you to use in the crown store for fun items like mounts,costumes,small upgrades,etc.Nothing that would make the game pay2win though.No weapons or gear.Also when yo usub you get every DLC for free. In ending,I still after two years subscribe,though you don't have to anymore,and will continue to do so for a long time to come. ESO is a great way to spend time.
