So I don't think this question has actually been answered, but maybe someone here has heard something I haven't. Since TESO is using a "shard" system which automatically puts you with people you've interacted with before,and "share your playing style" will there be an option to be placed with other players who prefer to roleplay? Anyone have any info? From what I understood, the shard system goes on completely behind the scene, which would mean it wouldn't see any difference in the playstyle of a roleplayer right?

What they said would happen is that the first time going into the game, they'll ask you a questionnaire about your playstyle (hardcore, laid back, RP, like to solo, like to group, etc), guilds you're signed up for and that kind of stuff. Then they try to mainly place you with others that go along with your playstyle/others you already know. That was talked about a long time ago though, so I might have forgotten to mention something.

What vigk said but they are thinking of removing the questionnaire and just do it on Guild and on FB friends, G+ people and something to do with Twitter.

That would actually really irritate me seeing as how I do NOT do social media of any kind.

I do a little FB to keep up with friends in the UK since I live in Kuwait. It's great to talk with real people now and again you know?

They really should keep in some kind of "preferred play style" setting. I would prefer to tell the game who I want to play with instead of having it guess based off some stuff I did.

Agreed. Technology and "Based on X, we think you would like Y" can get notoriously bad. The fact that they would be changing my gameplay experience without my permission would really upset me.
