big disapointment. so we wont see canibalisms, and we will not see buildings made out of insect wings.

also the knahathen flu seemds to be the overall excuse for not having a province at launch.

Did you really expect to be able to see every part of tamriel anyway? I mean doing that would be a nightmare in terms of the scale of the world. It also lets the game survive longer by giving the content later as expansions or content updates.

I am just fine with having faction territory opened up with expansions or DLC. If absolutely everything was explorable at launch, it's hard to imagine how they'd be able to offer any significant expansions to explore apart from epic dungeons or the planes of oblivion.

The DAoC areas for each realm were far smaller than a single province of Tamriel and it was still a tremendous amount of content to explore. I have hope that each expansion will be like playing a whole new game.

first of all. we will see every part of tamriel. im not upset because of the fact that some parts wont be there at launch. im upset about them using the same excuse every time.

and im upset that they dont seem like they will do the parts we havent seen yet justice.

It really seems like they're giving us the lines at launch, with some colouring done but far from everything, leaving space for colouring the blanks later through expansions and updates. A lot of companies do this, it's not necessarily a bad thing, just a bit underwhelming in this case. Making a TES MMO is setting the bar very, very high - people have a lot of expectations. They are clearly balancing what is possible (to be there at launch right away) and what is desired and/or expected.

Two things are starting to bug me.

# I hate how they do not answer the questions directly but beat around the bush.
(EG..) WHAT IS THE TIME = time varies through out the world and can reflect different moods, time itself does not stand still.

# Wonder how much extra the DLC /patch will be ?
I know it's the now way of the gaming industry to rip off the players who just blindly accept 1/2 a game, and then pay again for the rest of the game. Here in Australia we pay $90-$120 for a game, depending if its the normal or special edition. So, IF the game is $15 a month + the cost to buy the disk, I find it hard pressed to pay for a DLC that should be in the game, taking into account that you are area locked. Locking the area in a fact makes 3 small games (not counting PVP). This in my view should be a complete area.

If they charge $15 a month that's how they make the money not having us pay xtra to get the rest of the game.

Ok please can we go away from that topic? you mistook my post. i know why they do it. that was not the point of my complaint.

There are way more interresting, and frustrating, things in that article.

like how they butcher the classic aldmeri lore, and how the kahjiit will get no proper representation of the subraces (that should be very prevailant in elsweyr at the very least) not to mention that the way they wordet the snipped of the bosmer highly hints that the cannibalism will not get mentioned. probably due to age ratings.

Well this image was at E3 so I guess the coloured areas is about where they're letting us go in the game

They've stated that the colored areas are not an indicator of playable areas.

Is it just me or they never mention questions that are gameplay related or mechanics, only lore and maps, so far.

I know they probably want to save it to pre lunch, but i wish they would trow us a bone from time to time about game mechanics or some artwork.

Me too! But I guess it's so that they can still change things and not have to clarify it or get in trouble with the community.
