    There is way to much reference to WoW in those details. It's nothing personal against WoW, but every time I see an MMO list of the WoW comparisons, it always seems to falter. Also, how the hell does a stamina bar break the holy trinity in any way? Adding stamina to characters doesn't suddenly remove class roles <_<.

    Derp at that trailer, too.

    Having no hate system also isn't a fix either. I don't know why everyone is so into getting rid of the holy trinity. What am I missing here?

    I'm partial to it from playing FFMMOs, but I'm not against seeing it go as long as what replaces it is done well; that discussion is for a different thread though. I'm just a tad confused how adding a stamina bar and some defensive capabilities to go with it suddenly removes the holy trinity.

    I just can't find myself caring much. I know it'll be a let down. :/

    I'm going to assume BW did a horrible job of using that engine and hope it's not as terrible as that. I hope anyways. Otherwise, yeah, not looking good for "massive multiplayer".

    You mean the overreliance on singular tanks and healers, classes that most people tend not to want to play, resulting in massive backups in ques and gripes galore?

    No, why would we ever want to get rid of the holy trinity and give everyone a means to tank and heal in limited fashion, thus normalizing ques for everyone instead of having the rare tank get an insta-que while everyone else waits 45-60 minutes each time.

    Why, indeed.

    Game companies need to stop announcing stuff w/ a CGI. It used to be cool to be all hyped over a CGI for a mmo years and years ago, but now it just feels like a waste of people's time. It's a MMO, do they really think the players care what a CGI looks like?

    Well, I think that TOR benefited from all those CGI-only trailers from way back. At least considering what the in-game footage looked like.

    Compare XIV's CGI to XIV's reality. I really feel that the game sets the golden example of why companies shouldn't rely on CGI to show their games, and why players shouldn't want to see it.

    Tera > FFXIV > SWTOR > WoW > FFXI

    I agree with ring. This has the potential to be one of the most massive flops ever.

    I was prepared to give this the benefit of the doubt, but this sounds awful. After giving up on Rift and ToR, I've had it with WoW clones. Either give me something new, or GTFO.

    I own every ES game (multiple versions of the last 3), but this has "abortion" written all over it.

    "Hey guys. We know you love the ES games and everything about them. So how about we take that universe, and shoehorn it into a WoW clone!". Is that the sales pitch? I mean, Jesus Christ

    Taking a fairly well known franchise and skinning it onto an established mmo model, what could go wrong

    Are those the only games you've played? You're missing quite a few games that look better than some of those.

    Well, at least it doesn't look at all generic.

    Looks horrible. . .Why change the gritty artstyle of the original series to that?

    Maybe they are trying to appeal to a younger audience lol
