According to an info site I read, after a faction gains control of the Imperial City, players can continue with a quest to launch an attack against Mehrunes Dagon, the one trying to reel Tamriel into Cold Harbor.

Molag Bal.  Dagon's plan was in Oblivion.

Has anyone checked how Skyrim looks compared to TES:V? Everything in the right place?

 ???

They meant Skyrim's geography in TESO compared to its geography in TES:V.

oh  :-[
I have trouble getting my point across sometimes. But seeing as both Alchemist and Saddam (I assume) got what I was talking about, I guess I was clear enough.

You weren't specific, but it was obvious what you were talking about.  I hadn't even realized that Blanko hadn't understood you.  I thought the confused smiley he posted was referring to you bringing up a supposedly unimportant detail.

The Aldmeri Dominion will invade and conquer Skyrim, and the Dunmer won't do anything about it.

None. But if I were to play, I'd be Ebonheart.

I might play it if they lower the fee or adopt a hybrid model or something.

I might play it, so long as I can be a hermit circumambulating Tamriel, far away from other human players.

i.e. if I can play it as a single-player game. I don't care for MMORPGs

Sorry, no unrestricted circumambulation for you. You're confined to the territory controlled by your faction, until you complete your faction's main quest, or something.

The monthly subscription is the only reason I'm off. I'll just wait until it suffers the same fate as Startrek Online and SWTOR, as it no doubt eventually will.

Well that's shit. That eliminates any and all role playing not concerned with the war, or playing as a spy behind enemy lines, or playing as a sellsword, or playing as someone who abhors the war and ignores it until some random quest or another forces me to pick a side "For the sake of peace and sanity.".

Basically, one of the main reasons I like the Elder Scrolls games, or indeed any freeroaming RPG, the roleplaying element.

Instead of taking part in the war directly you can choose to become a smith or clother or alchemist and simply go about the country gathering mats to make stuff for people.  You can report your own troop's movements to the enemy via guild chat (presumably the account wide guild doesn't depend on being the same faction).  You can be a sellsword literally selling your services to other players. ESO is an MMO and will have a lot of the downfalls of an MMO, the community, but that doesn't mean it's restrictive on what you want to do.

You can ignore the war if you want to.  You just can't go wandering into the other factions' territories.  Which makes sense, given the circumstances.  They're hardly going to take you at your word when you say something like "Oh, I'm not actually allied with the rest of my race.  I'm neutral, honest!  So could you let me in?"

There are ways to do it which could be quite cool, if you are an Imperial and you wander into Mer territory, your character should be treated like a criminal (Similar to the way faction loyalties worked in New Vegas) but if it's an invisible wall then that would be gamebreaking for me.

To be honest, TESO shouldn't cater itself for the likes of me, I've never liked MMORPGs and I doubt this one will change my mind.

I imagine there are guards between boarders that you can sneak past or kill to enter other nations, but you'll be in hostile territory and always in threat of being attacked.

Still trying to download this huge-ass game. For this much storage the game better have such great graphics that my monitor turns into a portal to another universe.

Eh? I thought one of the factions you could play as was the empire in defence of Cyrodill?

God, this sounds worse and worse.

It's 27.1GB, actually. 27.1GB is a shitload for any game, even 20GB is too much. What the fuck kind of games are you downloading? Even Battlefield 4 isn't that storage hungry and Battlefield is notorious for having the shittiest compression and optimization ratios a game can have.
