Answer: lack of options, really. ;-)
No seriously, I'm going to be giving the game a shot for three reasons, all more or less compatible:
- I'm an Elder Scrolls fan-boy from way back; and,
- I've got an itch to try some new things lately; and most importantly,
- there's a chance, however small, that ESO is going to fulfill a need that I'm definitely not getting right now from EVE.
But that doesn't mean that five-year-old itch is gone.
Those days for EVE might be over... but they might just be starting in ESO. If I can have a 200v200 fight over a castle there that makes me Duke of Vvardenfell or whatever and there's an ESO influence map that shows that? ...yeah. I might endure a little bit of theme park to get that kind and size of game play back.
So yeah. Gonna give it a shot. Bring on April 4!
