    My guess summary:

    1. ZOS is now Bethesda in terms of ESO development team so ZOS devs are being absorbed and that gives them more resources.

    2. Future DLC details and previews of actual gameplay

    3. Announcement on who won the trips

    Again...my guesses

    As far as Matts article, I think it'll come but tomorrow is something due deferent but it has to come first because in his detail, tomorrow's announcement will be revealed

    This reminds me of the hype from OneTamriel, so I'm thinking it's more than just a DLC. Maybe Spellcrafting? They shelved it at one point but specifically said they might revisit it at a later date.

    We would certainly hope not. That event is scheduled for 2E 882 and not a moment sooner.

    Yes, But the Red Mountain is waking up too ^^ And since the chaos about the Numidium we can travel in time!
    Sotha Sil is the architect also and the false god of time...!
    That's why everything is possible!
    And that's why Sotha Sil is the guardian of clock Tower!!!
    We can travel into the time! Thank you to the false god Sotha Sil! B)
    That'll be also that i say because after ... may be that should be a big spoiler! ;)

    @argouru it gets saved to twitch, so when you get home and have access to twitch just look in "past broadcasts" :)

    Yeah, with that sort of Hype, this sounds much bigger than just a dlc. They didn't wanna see our reactions with any of the big things they've unveiled before, even One-Tam. Here's to hoping its awesomesauce!

    No.
    2. Future DLC details and previews of actual gameplay

    Likely details on future DLC. I would not expect any gameplay, nothing more than trailers, maybe for a new CGI movie.
    3. Announcement on who won the trips

    I forgot about this. Hmm. This does not sound like an event that would include that, but I suppose it could.

    While Vvardenfell will certainly be mentioned, this is not about Vvardenfell. My feeling is that the next chapter is off-world, in some Oblivion plane controlled by some Daedric Prince.

    Speaking of which, what is the "blue" background painting on the age gate page? I don't recall seeing this one, before.

    The agegate background is the loading screen for Hel Ra Citadel.

    Vvardenfell is pretty high up there in importance though. The teaser image is a volcano, after all.

    That sounds way too ominous for just a "Road Ahead 2017" type of thing. I am not looking forward to this. The bigger the hype, the less it benefits me. It sounds like they are setting the stage for some seriously disappointing news. Sorry to be so pessimistic. I have had my hopes dashed against the rocks by the ZOS waves before. It is hard to forget.

    Exactly. I get all excited and built up for an awesome change, only to find out that they are contracting out to Bob's Discount Game Studio for all future changes to the game. It will be full free to play with an all new P2W cash shop where you have to purchase every change you make during character generation. To save costs, they are moving all platforms to one semi-megaserver, where lag will be epic and you have to open a ticket with support a week before you want to log in. Also, support will be disbanded in favor of Magic 8 Ball. As soon as the new developers finish 7th grade, they will start rolling out updates.

    With ZOS, it is all about managing expectations in an attempt to still be happy when they break the bad news.

    On the other hand, if this is a great announcement, I have all the more reason to be happy.

    There is absolutely no down side to assuming the worst, when dealing with ZOS. :smile:

    Rise from darkness, Red Mountain!
    Spread your dark clouds and green vapors!
    Birth earthquakes, shatter stones!
    Feed the winds with fire!
    Flay the tents of the tribes from the land!
    Feed the burned earth with our souls!

    Yet never shall you have your rule over me.
    Never shall I tremble or flinch from your power.
    Never shall I yield my home and hearth.
    And from my tears shall spring forth
    The flowers of grassland springs.

    No matter how well you played,when the game is over,the king and pawn go back in the same box.

    I'm still guessing 'help Tribunal get Numidium' for plotline. It's a much better timeframe to do that then jump the schedule with Dagoth Ur.
    Where is the dedication? The loyalty? Your priority in life? You are never going to get the top Fan Achievement with thinking like that. :smiley:

    Hey, if Zenimax wanted a say in what I do with my working hours, they should have hired me the last time I was on the job market. :p

    Having to do that would hurt me on a personal level, knowing what will happen in the future x_x
    Glad my characters are blissfully unaware.
    Just so that everyone knows, my Altmer still can't have black hair. About a dozen of Altmer NPCs in the game have black hair. Just saying.

    Meet my characters:
    Command: Do the thing.

    Zadarri, Khajiit Fist of Thalmor: The thing was done, as commanded.
    Durza gra-Maghul, Orc blacksmith: The thing was done perfectly, in the most efficient way.
    Tegwen, Bosmer troublemaker: You can't prove I didn't do the thing.
    Sings-Many-Songs, Argonian fisher: Sure, I'll do the thing... Eventually. Maybe.
    Aerindel, Altmer stormcaller: After extensive research, I've come to the conclusion that doing the thing would be a waste of resources.
    Liliel, Dunmer pyromancer: Aerindel said I shouldn't do the thing. Something about "resources".
    Gyda Snowcaller, Nord cryomancer: I will find a way to do it that won't waste resources and make Aerindel proud of me.
    Beatrice Leoriane, Breton vampire: I persuaded someone else into doing the thing. You are welcome, dear.
    Sahima, Redguard performer: Doing the thing sounds awfully unpleasant and really not my problem.
    Ellaria Valerius, Imperial priestess: I'll pray to the Eight for the thing to be done, if it is Their will.
