    If you run in Trials and you wonder why you're not doing the sorts of damage you see on youtube videos and on forums, but you reject advice based on extensive testing, claiming "I don't agree" you're the toxic one.

    So can't wait to get to go for a stroll through the Imperial City and get a look at that new zone but most of all so want to have a go at the Deadra that have control of the Imperial City... That Bear looks epic.

    They have to wait for someone to finish a video to explain it all? They have to wait for someone to prepare formal announcement material? They have no one there that knows about Imperial City that can even just answer AMA questions for an hour or so?

    Unfortunately it's this. This is the problem you have when a company sinks a LOT of money into a project. They have to control the marketing in order to get as much momentum as possible when they're ready for it. Weather that helps or not is another question though. It hurts some existing players, but the question is will it garner a lot newer players then they would have had otherwise?

    In this case it really would not have. The live presentation was met with one cheer, not a roaring stadium. Even the Legends T CG received a whoop from the crowd. No questions were asked. There were no questions to ask. They have to wait for the consoles to recover from launch, and get their player base happy again. If they can't get their street cred back up it then PR will limit their show time if allow them at all.
    Anyone notice no plans for the evil within 2? Lol

    One thing I noticed was at 0:50 seconds into the video, that Daedroth bites off that player or NPC's head and eats it, resulting in A LOT of blood. Looks to me like they're starting to add more violence and gore to the game.

    We all know Zos can make nice zones with good voice acting and pretty graphics. What I am concerned about is what there is to do in the zones. More solo questing? Ya we had 150 levels of that getting to V14 thanks. More pointless quests for pointless rewards and all these fancy new zones they are releasing will end up like craglorn after 1 month of release.

    How about a progression system that entices players to keep logging on and forging ahead.Give us something to do that is challenging and has great rewards.

    If I can heal all the new content in my purple seducer set then I am quitting this game for good.
    I'm kind of a small deal!

    Looks like Imperial City and Orsinium are very far along, maybe even ready for PTS. However, I am sure they want to stagger DLC for sales/marketing reasons and not just drop it all on the PTS the week after console release. Just seeing a brief, flat wallpaper-like graphic of the Black Hand may seem like it fits it with the secretive nature of the Dark Brotherhood, but is probably more likely that the content is in very, very early stages and not ready to show in-game footage. So my guess is Imperial City in late summer, Orsinium in late Fall, but no Dark Brotherhood until 2016.

    Imperial City and Orsinium look sweet and Bear Mounts but what really got my attention was the DB blackhand. I mean come on they promised it "shorty after launch" and here we are a year later. I'm not here to criticize just here to say about freaking time. There is only two things that I've wanted since the game came out the Dark Brotherhood Guild and a Necromancer class while I may never see a necromancer class at least their hinting at Dark Brotherhood.
  • lifefrombelowb14_ESO
    I'm wondering if Dark Brotherhood is going to be a full skill tree like Mages, Fighters, and Undaunted or if its just going to be something more like bounties and item rewards.

    Nice tease, glad to know that July is right around the corner but do you mean that we will get an announcement in July about Imperial City, Orsinium and/or Dark Brotherhood or is that when you guys plan on it hitting PTS?

    Love the bear mounts, can't wait for Imperial City, Orsinium and Dark Brotherhood and also Thieves Guild... dying to play this content but please stop being so cryptic and teasing us...

    These DLC's need to be tested thoroughly and need to be meaty with content, please let us test it :)

    The Teaser was weak at best.. many of us already knew all this stuff for ages , specially since a fair bit of game assets are already pre-installed on our clients and they told us the same nothing before.

    I dare say that they even will split up everting and release it over a year instead of it being a big update that should be done , saves them a lot of dev time having to make new things and between just give us more re-skins of the same items.

    Also wonder were the guard system is..not heard anything about it since they released 1.6

    now all we need is a DATE OF RELEASE
    all we know it's 'coming this year' ...and that's just simply not enough :neutral:
    with lack of some serious info Fallout 4 will get all of the payers attention...

  • daniel.13b16_ESO
    OMG, I'm so excited for this new stuff, can't hardly wait ......

    Now lets be serious, we knew and saw trailers of this months ago. Orsinium, Wrothgar and Imperial City are not news. These things should have been in the game quite a while ago, or at the very least they needed to announce a detailed "road ahead" with release dates. We don't need a teaser or first look of these things because we have known about them for months.

    I honestly expected specific release months for Orsinium, Wrothgar and Imperial City, combined with some teasers about future plans like Brotherhood and/or housing and/or Spellcrafting. Where is ESO heading? Does ZOS even know?

    Every MMO has to keep players excited about the future and ESO does a poor job at that.

    You're 'half' right actually.
    It's good to see something they work on announced officially (AT LAST), but with no release date (or even PTS release date)
    it's hard to be excited so much about it. I'm spending more time recently re-playing Fallout 3 & NV (preparing for Fallout 4) than playing ESO :neutral: ...and I like ESO a lot! Just fact, that we don't even know when to expect content update (that we already know about) is really frustrating.
    Other BIG mmo I've been playing for years (and paying for years) always released full info about new expansion ...like zone levels, gear expectations, crafting updates etc, so while waiting I could get better gear for nice start in new zone ...or gear up my not used tank or healer for new dungeons/raids I've seen in expansion announcement. My point is... there was always something making me keep playing to prepare for new stuff that's coming.
    Now I just log in my main, do all daily writs, relog to my new character and do some quests till enlightenment runs out ...and go back to playing Fallout for the rest of the day. Since thanks to exp boosters people focus more on fishing and mindless cp grind rather than trials there's not much else for me to do :neutral:

    This is why I think they should switch to interactive Q&A for some of this.

    A brief intro followed by Q&A makes for a much more interpersonal way to present information and people think they are getting information unscripted, even if they aren't.

    Agreed. I think they believe that by keeping us in the dark because the next update is a long way off we will continue to play ESO 'just in case'. However, I love to prepare for new content. I don't mind waiting for it but I need a concrete plan of what is coming when, and what direction the game is going in further down the road. Otherwise I'm constantly looking for somethign else to play.
