|It's too bad you have to pay a subscription, though. That pretty much guarantees I will never purchase this game. I won't ever play a single game enough to warrant a subscription. |
It looks cool anyways. Elder Scrolls seems like it can be amazing in an MMO, but I just can't dish out this much money for a single game.

|I dont have the time to play such a massive game, especially one that means i will have to pay monthly on top of a full game RRP to be able to see and experience it all. |

|I am with #1 -- until they drop the subscription, I am not going to waste my time. |

|@ #1,2,4 & 5 |
A subscription is good then as it stops the game being full of part-timers who will be ill-equipped for high level dungeoneering:)
A clear divide may be best for the games health?

|With the amount of over-hyped shit that gets released, a monthly sub for a good game dsnt seem that bad.. |
40-50 quid for a game you'll finish in a week, which are released monthly almost, or investing in game that will keep you going forever.. works out cheaper if thats your thing.
Pros and cons again i suppose, each to their own, and not everyone is made of money!

Not when it seems like much of the game can be soloed (just my impressions).
And despite comments above, I bet if this game was subscription free people would actually put more hours into it, because they could comfortably play it at whatever pace they wanted, instead of burning themselves out trying to get their money's worth in these stringent times.

|@6 Well, that doesn't seem like a good thing to me. There are many games I want to play. But at the same time, if I payed a subscription, then I would always feel like I have to keep playing just to get my moneys worth. |
I enjoy being able to switch to whatever game I want, whenever I want.
Whatever, to be honest, I don't think this game will do very good with this model. Especially on consoles. People with consoles specifically do not play on one game forever, like lots of PC players do.
DC Universe Online has a good way of doing it. An optional subscription with extras and upgrades. But that has changed over the years, I don't remember how it was at first.

|They've not even got the ability to invade an enemy alliance town and attack them? :/ |
The subscription for this game still doesn't seem worth what you get to me, it's just... eh. To much is unknown at this point, so it is hard to judge, but of whats been shown, it's not shaping up the best. I'd like to hear more info on the class system, it's kind of one of the most imprtant parts of an mmo, if you get that wrong, then that'll cause allot of issues.
I heard mention of an area effect heal then, but, is there a healing class? Medics are the most important class in an mmo, esspecialy if you're going to be doing high level dungeons/raids, if that sort of thing isn't being offered, then I have no interest in this game tbh. It's that sort of thing that makes mmo's appealing to me.

|I'm willing to bet that this MMO will follow the likes of The Old Republic and drop the mandatory subscription fee after about a year, once they start hemorrhaging subscribers. |
I'll wait until then.

|Had Bethesda/Microsoft agreed to have the game on Demand (digital copy dl for free) but still pay $15 sub monthly. I would of been totally okay with that. Seeing how that would save me about 4 months sub on physical copy game. |

|Beautiful looking game. However we will have three consoles and three very invested individuals to any game. I will not shell out the monthly script cost. No thanks!! Pass!! |
Our family are giant fans of the series. Even my 10 year old is an AVID Skyrim Junkie....BUT.....its too much money. They think they are Blizzard....Good luck Bethesda. I truly wish you all the success.
We will be playing Destiny and TitanFall.

|I think I prefer my "endless content for free" models more than my "$15 subscription" models. |
I hate to beat a dead horse on this, but it's a REALLY stupid move to charge $15 a month to play the game when your competition charges NOTHING.
I played the crap out of Guild Wars 2. I still enjoy Guild Wars 2. The fact that I haven't played it in four months makes it a good thing it doesn't have any form of subscription fee. What's even better is that I only paid $60 for a lifetime subscription to the game.
Meanwhile, what is Bethesda doing? $60 for the game, $15 every month after that. So, what they're basically doing is charging you in order to keep playing a game you already purchased. I'm sorry, but that's akin to robbery and EA's policies. If your game was FREE to download and install, but then required the $15 subscription fee, I could see that maybe working. But, when I can physically buy the disc, but then can't use it, 'cause I didn't pay $15 on top of the price of the disc... It begins to feel like you're not just cheating us... But shitting in our faces while grinding your balls on our chin. It isn't pleasant.
Now, if your subscription fee on top of the "game purchase" ran what Runescape's fee costs me (five bucks, max, each month), I wouldn't mind it at all.
As it is, I'm not getting TESO. There's no reason to. I have a job and a life as well as millions of other game to finish. I also have other side projects and things I want to do. I can't be expected to play the game everyday, or even every month. Quite simply, I don't have time for an MMO to take over my life, because my life is more important than an MMO.
Maybe I'll see what FFIV's subscription fees are like when that comes out... Hopefully they're only like $5 or something, I'd like to play that, since I can't play TESO anymore.

|@16 - Could not agree with you more on every point. I love the idea of the game, love the potential of the game. But what they are doing is practically stealing. |
I wonder how many parents will naively buy this game for their kids and not realize this extra fee. They are out $60!!

|I know ppl are hating and I can see why, when MS is charging $500 for console plus game plus Gold. But hey, it's really your decision, devs are not making this more expensive your chosen platform is. I think I will be having blast with this on PC though=) |
