    Doesn't look like The Elder Scrolls, just another generic fantasy setting MMO.
    You're implying that the series doesn't already have a generic fantasy setting.

    One thing that doesn't make sense is does the Thalmor really believe they will succeed? Last time they were just fighting a weak imperial legion. Somehow I don't think it looks good for them if you have every race join the bandwagon and steamroll the Thalmor.

    correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the Empire have a firm foothold in pretty much every country before the Thalmor fucked their shit up? The only reason countries broke off from the empire (I.E. hammerfell) is because they surrendered to the thalmor.

    If I can experience the story of a quest and exploration with buddies then I have no problems with the game. Those who say it would likely make Skyrim the last SP Elder Scrolls game are overreacting imo.

    It has a generic fantasy setting that ends up making being unique SOMEHOW.

    Maybe it's because of the kickin lore, but for some reason it stands out to me.

    I think that it's actually started subverting a fair few cliches recently as far as Bethesda writing goes

    plus it's pretty unique with the strange, meta and vaguely frightening way it handles stuff like the Dwemer disappearing, the vague hints on those jars about all the towers being what holds together the universe, not to mention CHIM

    Yeah, the stuff that Kirkbride made like the Towers, CHIM, kalpas, and all that good metaphysical shit is also enough to make it different to me.

    Other than the metaphysics though, I think it kind of also stands out as a not very "High-Fantasy" type of world, and is gritty enough.

    the thing about tes fantasy is that it's full of the sort of things you'd expect and generic conventions etc etc, but it does it in a unique way, something about the feel of it, the art style, the world...

    I mean look what bethesda did with trolls, elfs, the lore around the elfs, same for the khajiit, orcs (which are also a type of elf in tes lore iirc), things like the dremora
    hell even their take on dragons is fairly unique

    where as those TEO screenshots LOOK(this being the key word) pretty much like any other generic fantasy mmo..
    the art style of the characters, armor, weapons, the look of the world, (from what we can see)
    i'm sure it will be full of the lore related stuff, but something about experiencing it all from a first person perspective is what really does it for me, so i'm sad to hear it will be in third person

    Pretty much the only reason why most fantasy worlds today stand out from each other.

    Edited:

    If anything, blame the Hero engine/art style for how generic it looks. The environments look just as unique as they are in the regular TES games.

    They did have a fairly firm foothold, but they were still weakened from the whole Mythic Dawn fiasco and were caught completely by surprise. The Emperor was also warned against war because of the weakness of the Legions. The war ended when the Empire killed the Thalmor's top general Lord Naarfin, hung him from the White-Gold Tower for a month, and then...surrendered? Really I see that as a draw. How the Thalmor can see it as a victory is beyond me.

    now what the hell is the point of that, it's not like anyone would even see the body that high up, plus if it fell you'd at best have a huge mess to clean up, at worst a few crushed citizens

    Lets not mention every other race and fractions, petty bandits to mages gulids were not involved, The Thalmor want to wipe out everything other then high elves to "ascend". I'm pretty sure if they even try that plan everyone will be grabbing arms and go elf hunting

    If you could still rate negatively on nexus this would be the most downvoted by all the butthurt type 3 body fans(which as we know seem to be the majority), claiming how an MMO is the best thing to happen to the series .Due to the fact that now they can finally perform sweet Argonian love online to each other for a mere fee of a couple hundred gold...

    Or maybe I just got carried away and just should've emphasised the -1 comment.

    While Bethesda has said that the MMO won't affect the main series in any way, I'm still worried that they'll feel forced to use all the MMO provinces as a base for future games.

    Wait what? I think the modmaker is stupid. If that guy really thinks its the end of singleplayer Elder Scrolls then he's buttfucking retarded. And I'm not one of those type 3 whores either, I really have no opinion on the new mmo, mainly because I haven't seen enough of it to make a judgement. Some of the things concern me, but not enough to get me on the hatewagon.

    In the case of TES, the games get more interesting and rewarding the more you know about them.

    but yeah, I'm pretty sure the MMO is going to flop. There is absolutely no room on the market for another MMO, especially one without a giant IP. They would have to do something absolutely magical with TES:O to have even a slim chance at success.

How the Thalmor can see it as a victory is beyond me.
    The Empire had already lost the Black Marsh, Valenwood, the Summurset Isles, and Elsweyr before the war with the Thalmor started. And Morrowind was in no condition to help - let's not forget how the Empire lost nearly every legionnaire that was present in Vvardenfell and many that were in Morrowind. Hammerfell was in civil war. Ironically, the most fit province at the time was Skyrim, *cough cough*, and I doubt Daedra would have done much damage there during the Oblivion crisis due to the terrain and cold. The [fascist] Thalmor were busy preparing for war against the Empire while the Empire was busy trying to sort out the major unrest that had appeared in every province.

    Well, this is what UESP says anyway. I have no idea where they get these sources.

    I just re-read the book where they say that. Naarfin wasn't killed, he was put in a cage which was THEN hung from the White-Gold Tower for a month. They didn't say how they kept him alive and it's apparently speculated they never buried him. His body just disappeared.

    And Kirkbride intended Oblivion to be rainforested, until someone ran roughshod over that.

    The point being that that the most general form of the statement's wrong once you've found a single example that contradicts the claim. A more accurate statement would be "the series with the exception of Morrowind and TESA Redguard".

    Edit - sorry! I agree with you: TES4&5's environment *have* been lackluster (BethSoft haven't been applying themselves or summat like that), but the deeper is point is that (while this claim is ridiculously premature) TESO's environments differ significantly from the TES > 4s' in a way that has BethSoft finds doesn't add but detract, disowning it in the long run by saying it won't affect the series.

    In all honesty, I would've thought the only way for environments to go from the barebones that characterized Oblivion was up - TESO proves otherwise.

    "It is not recorded where his body was buried, if at all. One source claims he was carried away by winged daedra on the thirty-fourth day." I'm willing to bet he'll be included in future DLC if he wasn't officially recorded dead. And of course there is no mention of the fate of his comrade Lady Arannelya.

    I don't mind if the art style is somewhat different given it takes place during a different era.
    But I DO NOT like the execution that they're describing. (skill hotbar etc)

    I'd like an Elder Scrolls MMO, but I do not want this one.
