    Noah´s flood, a historical event... um, well. But I agree, it would be nice if there were other stories beyond "save Tamriel from total destruction".


    Well, the point was that many people believed it happened, but aren't talking about it every day. This was in response to people pointing out that ESO's premise is unlikely because we never heard anything about it in any of the other games. I personally don't have a problem with epic storylines.

    That's true, just because you haven't heard about something or nobody is talking about it, doesn't have to mean automatically that it is not existing or has not happened.

    Isn't it actually illogical that we celebrate the New Life Festival every year when the year 2E 582 never ends?

    I honestly thought this as well. We celebrate it every year, yet we’re in the same year? Doesnt make sense to me.

    But they stop being "epic" after the millionth time you've saved the world, don't they? Kind of kills any sense of weight a story would otherwise have.

    But making a compelling story is hard, and Zenimax knows we'll spend money on them regardless, so here we are.
    No one is saying there aren't multiple interpretations of the lore, and we're not arguing that ESO did it "wrong".

    We're arguing that they decided to go for the most boring, mundane, seen-before interpretation possible. Like they almost always do, unless they can ride on the coat-tails of past games.
