"It's entirely different from the other games" that was kinda my point to begin with. You've got an MMO that borrows a couple of mechanics from previous games, then fucks it over with tired MMO mechanics, then takes a dump on pre-existing lore (factions teaming up with people they were never in an alliance with and could never be, see Orcs being friends with the guys who committed mass genocide against them at the Seige of Ornisium). To me it's an ES games in title and setting only. Everything I've seen so far has underwhelmed me, and their handling of canon only cements my opinion. They can retcon all they want but they're heading into Metzen territory.
