Why does everything have to have a cheesy "Fall over and die" animation on mmo's? If I see ONE skeleton do this, I will rage smash a door! I want them to splinter to bits!


Which is more difficult: To do as you wish? Or to have power and choose not to?

There will be Death Animations in ESO. I've never played an MMO so I don't know what a "Fall over and die" animation is but I fell that it is like is seems. From what I've heard from the ShoddyCast, that the time around you will slow down. They'll most likely be like what we had in Skyrim, and only for the last enemy. And I don't think any for other players.


Long live the Pact, and Death to le Queen

I don't mean like execution style, i just mean in general. watch the new dev gameplay video and pay attention to everything that dies. they all fall to thier knees then fall forward. looks kinda lame to my eyes is all.

Well, I know if you kill a enemy (even not in a cut-scene) and say, your weapon's direction when hits that person is to the left, then the direction that person's corpse will be going in, will be the the left. And in a video, a person cut a throat of another person, and that person would just died did fall down to their knees and then to the ground.

I'd take set animations that look "cheesy" at times over the alternative of client-sided ragdoll physics that, whilst often fun, are more often than not unrealistically ridiculous.

I know it's probably too early to be bawlking about it anyways, they're doing lots of polishing still. The way a lot of the deaths were in the dev video just didn't seem like they fit first person to me, though they're acceptable and even expected of a regular mmo.

Ragdoll would just lag up the server.
