Hey guys, I've made a quick video in which I compare World of Warcraft with The Elder Scrolls online.

It's my 1st video, I hope it's not terrible.

Also, english is my second language but I hope you can understand everything in the video ;)

Do you think TESO will be a better MMO than WoW? Discuss.

Great video, but I don't think you can really compare those games.

No you cant compare them.
For starters, WoW is nearly a decade old...that basically renders all comparisons moot.

Yea bad choice I think. You can't compare.

A good PR video for sure, not many people will catch on immediately that TESO has no rotations. Everything else about TESO in comparison to WoW is really obvious.

A fire mage burst rotation as a example,

Insta pyro ready, frost jaw, PoM, alter time, insta pyro to a deep freeze, PoM pyro, insta pyro, alter time, insta pyro, combust, PoM pyro. It goes something pretty much like that on the top of my head.

Your comparing two different ball games, but I don't blame you for the video, good PR.

From playing WoW since 2006 and from playing Elder Scrolls since Morrowind I would be hardpressed to compare Wow to TESO initially. Frankly, before even a basic comparison could be made people really need to wait until TESO has been out 6 months+

These are 2 totally different games. the only thing they share is the MMORPG genre.

As much as people don't like it, WoW WILL always be compared to any upcoming MMO as WoW holds most the players in said genre. People rarely play two MMO as they do take a lot of the player's time to get the full experience never mind the fact that these both will be subscription based so zenimax will be hoping that they can take some of the players from WoW.

I agree with you on this. I played WoW since closed beta up until about September last year and TESO is a different animal to WoW. However, as WoW has been the grandaddy for so long, it will always get compared to the latest and greatest MMOs, regardless of whether they are actually comparable or not.

Zenimax have got one convert as I am fully intending on dropping a subscription on this game.

I liked the video. Thumbs up.

Although I only played WoW for a week (on a mac!) and found it to be inferior to most other fantasy mmorpg, (for example the original Guildwars, Dungeons&Dragons Online, Everquest, Age of Conan and Lord Of The Rings Online) there is no ignoring its position as a benchmark in the genre.
However to make comparisons obviously exposes how poor WoW is/was. The only influence on TESO that I see from WoW are the class trees.

TESO has borrowed more game mechanics from other mmorpg, for example, the combat is influenced by DDO and console gaming (Skyrim most obviously), the pvp & server is dominated by Guildwars concepts, etc, etc.

I suspect WoW will become quite retro in the future with its main advantage being its low spec and there for perhaps playable on mobile phones...

ZOS don't wish for ESO to be compared to or treated like a MMO. It is nothing like any other MMO (since MMO's generally don't have that much in common). Additionally I could pull out a board game and it would beat WoW graphics. It's a bit of a low blow when WoW gets matched up against games with brand new graphic engines.

I also personally find that the people who go into ESO and begin comparing it to other MMO's. They end up not enjoying it because their expectations are completely different. It needs to be treated like a new game entirely to fully appreciated the merge between TES and an online platform.
