    want to play the game but it would really help me if i know if it was a pay to play game or if it is free to play but if you want good stuff you have to pay to get it like most MMO games i play like perfect world

      Pay to Play or Free … I’ll be playing.

      I really hope it’s pay to play, but if it’s free 2 play, I might still play if it plays as well as it sounds

    This was a great listen! The enthusiasm of both of you is so infectious, it made me even more excited than I already was. Thanks so much.

    Out of curiosity , since its an mmo is the questing experience going to be linear where we go off kill X amount of mobs or collect X amount of items or is it going to follow the questing experience of TES and allow full immersion of the game (which is what i LOVE in skyrim) cause if it follows TES in the questing experience then im sold, I just cant take another linear same old different day quest experience

    Looking forwarded to the game. From what iv seen and read it looks like its going to be an epic game. Hope this is the MMORPG that I’ve been locking for I’ve played allot of MMORPGs just to be let down.

    Make it like GW2. Buy in store for $60 flat fee with an in game store where we can purchase in game items and gold ‘if we want to’. But if not, we are not at a distinct disadvantage from other players who buy everything from the store.

    • Aderock January 16, 2013 at 3:09 pm #

      No thanks, something more along the lines of RIFT where you pay monthly and can get anything in the game with some hard work and you don’t have to pay 3-4 dollars for a stupid item in the shop or to get more bank space you don’t have to buy it. An in game store wouldn’t really fit with the series anyways.
