Q: Ivan, why did you decide to create a website about ESO?
A: Well, that’s because I really like The Elders Scrolls games. I’ve played Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim and each part of the game was great. When I heard that ZeniMax were creating an online version of TES I was interested. I decided to create a website where any TES fan can find information about the game.
Q: Are you a huge fan of TES?
A: Well, while I’m a big fan, I know that there are many loyal TES fans out there who are even more hooked than me. But I think every player likes the game differently, for example, what I enjoy the most in TES games are the questing and progression. Hopefully we will be seeing some very interesting quests in ESO that don’t feel repetitive.
Q: What is the most impressive feature in ESO ?
A: I think it has to be the Megaserver. For those who don’t know: Megaserver technology allows a game to house all players on 1 giant server. There will no longer be separate servers. This will lead to no queuing and overpopulated locations. One Megaserver will control everything. This is the most impressive feature for me. I know that the developers have put a lot of work into this technology. ZeniMax Online have been very secretive about exactly how the MegaServer works, but trust me, it is very difficult to create and run such technology. EOS is the first game to use Megaserver technology so it will be interesting to see if it’s successful.
Q: Yes, that’s great. What do you expect from ESO? Will it succeed on the market?
A: I think so, yes. There are many reasons for that: A very large and great community, professional developers and of course an interesting game. With the popularity of WoW beginning to decline quite rapidly, ESO could take top place in MMORPG’S if it’s as good as we believe it is.
Q: Do you like the Subscription model they have announced?
A:I know a lot of people were angry at the decision, but, personally I was ready for that. I expected to see a Sub model and I was not surprised when they confirmed it. People need to understand that this model allows developers to keep a high frequency of updates and continue to improve and expand the game, in-fact, ZeniMax are planning on releasing an update every 4-6 weeks. Only a Sub model can provide ZeniMax with enough funds for this, and, personally I would rather pay a bit more to have quality updates which are keeping the game exciting.
Thank you for your answers. We hope Elder Scrolls Online will succeed and we will see a new great MMO. If you want to find out more about ESO visit http://elderscrollsonline.info – awesome ESO database.
