So recently I heard that chat bubbles and sitting on chairs are not going to be implemented in the game. I really don't care since I'm not a huge rper, but I know a lot of people are upset and some aren't going to buy the game anymore. So tell me your opinion on this, be polite

I don't think they would be very hard to implement. If it's not in the game at launch, they'll add it in an update. And people are really that upset over it? Gods, people, grow up!


By arrow. By blade.
By tooth. By claw.
By shock. By frost. By flame.
The Aldmeri Dominion will dominate Tamriel.
Our enemies will fall until the Throne is ours.

I don't want to sound arrogant but I agree with you, they couldn't be that hard. And yes I've read youtube comments were some ppl are literally raging over the fact, and besides the game is subject to change it's still in early beta

Yeah, just look at what they've changed so far. We have first-person view and console versions -- two things the community was practically begging for and that the devs said they had "no plans" for.

No chat bubbles-true. Sitting on chairs will be in game.

Yea they've listened to us so far, And seeing chat bubbles just pop up when I'm playing ruins the whole TES feel for me, they could do something like whipering, and if you want to talk to your friends privately we should be able to create our own chat group, problem solved.

That's very interesting that there will not be chat bubbles. I would have imagined it would've been just a standard chat window, but you could implement chat functions to work how ZOS must be wanting them to be and turn off the chat bubble. Otherwise I'm not quite sure how anybody will be able to do anything without forming horded pubs where everyone can talk to each other in a small area. Truth is, the further you go away from the MMO feel that we all know and are used to, the more you will cause players to resort to drastic actions in order to hold on to that front, unless it is literally impossible. From this, I can gather there will be such things like areas in cities or towns where people just horde to spam "LFG for Cave of the Moss Spider" or some other nonsense.

As far as sitting goes, eh I could care less. The sitting animation was never good imo in the other ES games. Who sits the exact same way every single time? If you ask me, if you can't perfect something - don't bother doing it or adding it to your game. All it will do is detract players from the immersion of the game more than it would draw them in that they can sit exactly like everyone else can.

Everyone is forgetting that it IS and mmo and that it can't be exactly like skyrim, IMO I think that's the main problem here.

All we can do is speculate for now

Zenimax has specifically said we cannot use chairs.

Not being able to sit on chairs doesn't bother me much, but it seems pretty lazy of them. No chat bubbles will be a problem if the area is crowded and you only want to talk to one person.

Agreed. I don't know anything about development, so don't quote me on this, but I can't see coding chat bubbles to be that difficult or time consuming. The chairs thing I hope is added in a later expansion, but it won't be game breaking, just a bit disappointing.

Its a big problem. Most of you non-rpers will partly suffer for Zens laziness for the simple fact that it takes from the game and makes it seem somewhat robotic and not life-like. I would feel like a drone if i cant sit down and the speech bubbles make it easier for tavern chats and party chats instead of having to search for someones reply in a box. I thought they would top WoW in this regards since its an Elder Scrolls game but they have completely disregarded Roleplayers.

Zenimax: We're finally making an Elder Scrolls MMO! You can finally go on adventures and roleplay with your friends!

Community: Wow, this game looks great! I can't wait to play it with my all of my friends!

Zenimax: BTW, there are no chat bubbles and you can't sit in chairs.

Community: OMFG THIS GAME IS SHIT I'M NEVER BUYING IT FUCK YOU ZENIMAX!!!!

When did they say that? I thought they said the opposite
