What kind of players does ESO attract?

I came across the Bartle test the other day and I am curious to see what other ESO players test as. I was surprised at how accurate my scores are.

https://mudhalla.net/test/bartle3d.php

Your Bartle Gamer Type is: oSfP

Your dominant subtype is known as the Illusionist.

The oSfP Illusionist is always on the lookout for the next big thing to pursue, he is a hard worker if he believes it is meaningful. When he encounters an obstacle he will examine it in detail until he has it figured out, learning in the process.

The oSfP Illusionist enjoys the occasional lazy day just hanging around with his friends. He is not a person who seeks conflict but will stand up for his allies.

The oSfP Illusionist prefers a complex world with fascinating physics that is not unbending and rewards a variety of playing styles.

    You are 80% Explorer

    What Bartle says:

    ♠ Explorers delight in having the game expose its internal machinations to them. They try progressively esoteric actions in wild, out-of-the-way places, looking for interesting features (ie. bugs) and figuring out how things work. Scoring points may be necessary to enter some next phase of exploration, but it's tedious, and anyone with half a brain can do it. Killing is quicker, and might be a constructive exercise in its own right, but it causes too much hassle in the long run if the deceased return to seek retribution. Socialising can be informative as a source of new ideas to try out, but most of what people say is irrelevant or old hat. The real fun comes only from discovery, and making the most complete set of maps in existence.

    You are also:
    60% Achiever

    47% Socialiser

    13% Killer

    This result may be abbreviated as EASK

    Well, pretty accurate. I main pvp, i enjoy knowing the ins and outs of the game and using it to my advantage, and depending on how i feel atm, i can be a shitheel or spend 3 hrs helping some random with a build...

    But i definitely get a kick out of being a "known" player on my platform, whether you see me as some goofy stoner who just screws around mostly, or im literally the devil incarnate because i swap alliances and have two thumbs... Either way, real endgame pvp is 90% psychological.

    Anyway, cool post op.

    Difficulty scaling is desperately needed. 9 years. 6 paid expansions. 25 DLCs. 41 game changing updates including A Realm Reborn-tier overhaul of the game including a permanent CP160 gear cap and ridiculous power creep thereafter. I'm sick and tired of hearing about Cadwell Silver&Gold as a "you think you do but you don't"-tier deflection to any criticism regarding the lack of overland difficulty in the game.

    I don’t think any of my numbers were above the 50’s which I think reflects that I like doing a variety of things in game, very much enjoy working with others to achieve a goal but sometimes just want to chill and explore on my own. My dominant subtype was Paragon but really I’m not a leader sort of person. Other than that it fits pretty well, but then so do aspects of several others listed here. 🤔

    I got exactly the same feeling.

    I actually prefer the original Bartle Test. My result is ESAK there and I think recognize myself in that result quite well.

    You are 87% Explorer
    You are also:
    73% Socialiser
    40% Achiever
    0% Killer

    What Bartle says:

    Explorers delight in having the game expose its internal machinations to them. They try progressively esoteric actions in wild, out-of-the-way places, looking for interesting features (ie. bugs) and figuring out how things work. Scoring points may be necessary to enter some next phase of exploration, but it's tedious, and anyone with half a brain can do it. Killing is quicker, and might be a constructive exercise in its own right, but it causes too much hassle in the long run if the deceased return to seek retribution. Socialising can be informative as a source of new ideas to try out, but most of what people say is irrelevant or old hat. The real fun comes only from discovery, and making the most complete set of maps in existence.
