voted, but not gonna name my option so I won't influence anyone.

I can see some future issues with this set-up, though:
to give an example, I think quite a few of our members will only play ESO if HB moves there officially and quits GW2 (officially), but then again we can only go official in ESO if we know that a large percent of our community wants to play the game and will come with us.
I can also see people join us only if a certain player (Smokee) will play it, etc.

I'd say, let's set an end date, like somewhere in march, 16th for example.
We'd close the poll at 16th 24h and have a guild meeting on the next week to discuss the results and the next steps.

Voted option 3, thats based on not playing it though.. dunno what ill do if I don't personally like the game, chances are though if the majority are playing and enjoying it I am likely to enjoy it too.

I'm inactive in GW2 and don't plan to dedicate much time to ESO. Imo, its not looking as great as advertised.
I'm gonna get it for PS4, and it will probably keep me entertained for a while. But nothing like GW2, WH or any of our other games.

Also the talk about what you can buy for real life money through "micro"transactions got me concerned.

That said we will have a HB section in ESO if one of our current or past Officers steps up and accept the challenge (With the support of the IC).
But it will be hard if there is no backup from HBs' core member base.

Im gonna buy a Batman suit and hang it in my closet, just to duck with myself if I get alzheimers.

I'm home, take me drunk...

ESO is going live in 2 months? Unless you're into masochism, I'd avoid launch.

Imo this game does not bring enough new to the table. It isn't that bad really, it's quite decent single player pve-wise but I would not do pvp or rvr in this game. Sluggish control, very few buttons to push, generic classes etc. etc.

It would probably keep you entertained a bit as you solo pve. But how this could be interesting in a large scale raid setting I fail to see. :)

I'm putting my money on Wildstar atm (stress test starting tomorrow will give a better picture of potential) until camelot enters the scene.

can u provide some link, i would like to get more info about those micro transactions".... couse it may change my approch to eso. iam probably the only one that picked option 1 ^_^. monthy subscripption+ micro trazactions is just greedy. Looks like zenimax just want to make as much money from product (which isnt even their own idea, general elder scrolls saga) with no intention of balancing, fixing, adding stuff and just going to meake it f2p few months later. cant wait link, thanks in advance

I thought some of the clunky feel might be good in large scale battles, when one would be limited by the concern of friendly fire. Perhaps abit forced cause I was soloing, still very low lvl tho.
Perhaps give it a try for a month and still partake in calendar events in GW2

There will be "micro"transactions and monthly fee. http://elderscrollsotr.mymiddleearth.co ... nsactions/

TotalBiscuits also discussed it on his last Co-optional Podcast, where I first heard of it: http://www.twitch.tv/totalbiscuit/b/502599014

I believe purchasing the game is $60 and the subscription fee (paid monthly) is $15.
