Guys, I still hope we'll be able to go past our borders and explore enemy territory and even launch attacks, it would really suck to not be able to see the whole of Tamriel with your character. What are your thoughts and ideas?

Well I can already tell you that you are more than likely going to be very disappointed. While ZOS hasn't come out and directly stated that we can't explore enemy faction territory, they have said that faction provinces are "safe zones" for players and that PvP will be completely restricted to Cyrodiil.

Those two elements alone can lead one to believe that we will indeed be restricted to our own provinces. We also can't forget that DAoC restricted players to their own faction territory, and ESO is heavily influenced by DAoC.

This is a little disheartening from an exploration standpoint, as I want to see Tamriel in all of its entirety. But for the sake of the factions and the legitimacy of PvP, it's a necessary evil. I'll just make other characters if I really want to see the other provinces that badly.

I would like to explore all of Tamriel with a single character as well, but it would detract from faction pride and such, as Redguard King said. I'm hoping ZOS incorporates an arena that you can fight in (like what they had in Oblivion) for small scale PvP battles, though.

I think that they won't allow you cross borders between the three factions, thats a dull mmoish thing...

Less if you create three characters, and check out every factions, but as I said before, we know not how many characters on your account as limited.

First things first. Nobody said you cant do that. Just that you cant quest.

youll have to wait to get your answers, but dont have too high hopes. It is about Faction Identity and all that jazz.

I don't know how they would handle players entering a hostile area, that wouldn't really make sense...

Entering enemy territory makes perfect sense, small scouting parties, spying & espionage are just a couple of reasons why we would cross enemy lines.

But how much espionage do you need in a game? How would that even work?

For those that haven't heard: it has been confirmed by ZOS that we cannot venture outside of our faction provinces.

1) Your account if possible (more characters, so "spy" character in other faction)
2) If not, use two accounts
3) They have friend-list. They contact as private chat how to use "sell info" to other.
4) Teamspeaker (private server)

It finds many way how espionage cases...

as said it has been predicted since matt firor was confirmed to be taking part in the development, and it should not come as a shock to anyone. It aint half bad.

I agree with this. I think it may be for the best. Besides, it gives you another reason to make more characters!

I understand the reasons behind it, but I (and a lot of people) would still like to see servers that allow interfaction mingling and explorations outside cyrodiil, and I've said as much on their twitter.

I feel that we should be allowed to go in enemy turf and kill ppl there, just not the noobie island or the main cities.
