    With the nda lifted, there should be way more informatiuons collected here. Otherwise stratics might mostly miss another chance to 'set foot' into another, hopefully, rising game. I know, that the uo-section of stratics is blessed with a very dedicated stratics staff (and community) and that it is very unlikely to find anything comparable for another game, too. But it also means to me, that stratics has a reputation to loose. *g* It is simply not just another gaming webside out there ... its THE gaming webside. (or at least it should be. :D )

    Some missing stuff, that the respoinsibles could work on/prepare for:
    - recipe lists for alchemy and enchanting. Along with decripted effects of plants and runes
    - treasure map locations with screenshots + descriptions on how to reach them
    - skyshard locations
    - skilllines explained/detailed
    - maps
    - Cyrodiil quests
    - achievements lists/explained
    etc

    I agree, especially now that the NDA is lifted.
    Something our team was discussing was that anyone covering a new MMO as their main focus should really make an effort to explain what this one has that others don't.
    Its vital to the success of the game, because if the person playing it isn't enthusiastic about why they play it then the viewer / reader won't be either.

    I'm sure there are hundreds of things that make the title special, but if its not published succinctly a perspective player won't find it and may pass the game right over!
    Could be a great opportunity to get an article a ton of exposure as well, as if the company sees active personalities helping promote the game in a logical fashion they will be happy to send love your way.
    A friend of ours made a video on Tera and how its graphics were gorgeous and had the video embedded on Tera's main website forever! It might still be there!

    With new MMOs the goal should not just be to cover what the features are, but why the features are special and worth checking out!
    Looking forward to seeing everything that's published either way!

    Well, some enterprising soul could start a thread on cybersex opportunities specific to ESO. That would jumpstart these boards :danceb:

    Another possible beta weekend testing coming either this upcoming weekend or the next. ESO Dev Twitter accounts starting to drop hints...getting the InterTubes buzzing again!

    See ya all during a weekend!
