Well that's highly irritating (Re: TES:O and lore)

Irritating that they're trying to take the "nope it was never a jungle even though it's a well-established fact that it was and Talos changed that lol"

And that the team at TES:O at least seems to think everything in Online is canon.

I've been wondering about your opinion on how TESO is going to effect lore, whether its for better or for worse. It takes place 1000 years before Arena, right?

Aye. Previously I had no problem with it, since they're putting it in a previously unused piece of history. But this, plus just the general look of the races (HEY GUIZ LETS MAKE ALTMER LOOK LIKE GENERIC WHITE TOLKIEN ELVES LOL) really pisses me off.

Heh the destiny of a lot of the longer living series. Hopefully, in ES:6 they won't mention ESO, or the retcon's they use.

Really you didn't think the MMO would screw up the lore? look at what wow did to warcraft.

Jungles are a b**** to move around in.

Also everything wants to kill you. I'll take temperate any day.

I'd have no problem with it if they didn't have the gall to say it's canon with the main series.

Also apparently so far only the Suthay-Raht are in the game at all. GG

Yeah that Altmer thing...what could possibly be so wrong with having them look like they've always looked? Are the afraid the MMO audience is going to balk at golden elves, or what?

But don't worry, it'll all get re-retconned after it crashes and burns like SWTOR. That game at least has EA to prop it up. Doubt Zenimax has those resources. They'll probly just eat the investment and pull the plug.
