Jesus Christ, these factions make almost no sense

#1viruscarrierxxxPosted 5/3/2012 2:51:48 PM
I happened to take a peek at the magazine. It's not looking very good lore wise...

3 factions:

1. Aldmeri Dominion (High Elves, Bosmer, and Khajiit for some reason even though they only like the High Elves after the moon incident).

2. Ebonheart alliance (Nords, Dunmer, and Argonians). Why? Why does this exist? You take literally the 3 factions that probably hate each other the most and throw them together? What kind of logic is that? Why wouldn't the Nord ally with the Cyrodillic people? Or the Breton? Don't even get me started on the Argonians and the Dunmer's relationship.

3. Lastly we have an alliance of the Orcs, Breton and Redguard. The most logical, but why are the Orcs mentioned? They're a people without a true homeland. Just pointless

Please, kill me now...

That does make absolutely no sense if true. Lore wise at least, gameplay wise I could see why.

Yeah. I'm having my doubts about this game as well. I know it's early, but considering Bethesda is not at the head of this, it makes me worried.

Yes, I know that Bethesda is a part of Zenimax, but from what I'm hearing, the main team for TES at Bethesda doesn't have much to do with it.

Todd Howard not Director = Not a real Elder Scrolls game.

So Morrowind, Daggerfall, and Arena aren't Elder Scrolls games?

/facepalm.

Todd was on the Morrowind team.

And yes, Daggerfall and Arena are Elder Scrolls games, and I really enjoy them. However, when you think of TES, it's 3 through 5 that come to mind.

EDIT:

By the way, Morrowind is my favorite of the series. I play it constantly. And yes, I'm one of those Morrowind fanboys that complain about Oblivion and Skyrim not being enough like Morrowind.

They didn't exist until ESIII: Morrowind. Until then they were just a minor Nord spinoff.
