Is attempting to Role Play that common?
I have been playing ESO for a couple of years now. I haven't really come across much effort to try and role play.
I don't know if it is more prevalent on certain platforms / in certain regions.
I haven't had any practice of it because I haven't had a group of people who were into that.
If anything it seems like a kind of "Anti Roleplay" is more prevalent. I would define this as practices by some who seem to go out of their way to pour the real world into the Elder Scrolls space to the point of really shattering the immersion. This is commonly things like blasting their modern music loudly through the area chat or discussing through voice or chat very real world matters.
It is kind of hard to immerse yourself in the Eldernroot rich world and culture of the Bosmer culture with loud urban music blasting out and having people discussing their plans for getting another batch of weed to smoke. Though this has taught me that area chat is best left turned off.
I am intrigued by Roleplay. I don't know how good I would be at it. I would be interested in trying it out. It seems to look like from the threads that most likely I would have to join a specialist guild to do it. I am a little apprehensive about swapping guilds to try out something that I do not yet know for sure if I will enjoy.
