Today is the official go-live date for The Elder Scrolls Online. I was a bit skeptical about them hitting their target in good order, especially after a couple of the beta weekends, but here we are.
And what I have read online so far seems to indicate that things are going well. SynCaine, something of a bellwether on this front for me due to his past investment in Skyrim and such, making him a good point for telling whether this is really an Elder Scrolls game or not, seemed to be happy during the head start. I will take that as a good omen. And I like his advice on how to approach such a game.
I am still not ready to dive in. The game isn’t off my list, but I really don’t feel the need to go some place new right now. I am still in the midst of reliving 2008 or some such with WoW and Pokemon and the like. But when the usual Summer instance group hiatus comes and I have ground out all the factions in Azeroth I can stand and it is time for a vacation in some different world, TESO is very likely candidate.
