    I doubt we will see multiplayer in a main Elder Scrolls game, that is what TES Online is being made for surely?

    First off, level scaling. GTFO. For a balanced world there needs to be things that are weak and things that are strong. It gives a sense of progression, of a character evolving and for attributes and exploration to actually have a point.
    I'm not convinced of that anymore to be honest. I hated the scaled levels in Oblivion with a passion but I like the Skyrim approach, although it can do with further refining.
    If scaling's not purely linear proportional to the player's level and not equally distributed across the land I think it can work just fine.

    I do see benefits to not having purely fixed level NPC's in a large, open world now.
    For instance: certain fights being epic no matter what level you are rather than having to funnel players into linear progression at specific points to ensure their level is capped when they engage those enemies.
    Through their rose-tinted glasses older players don't tend to see it anymore but the latter's exactly what classics like Baldur's Gate did.

    A few extra thoughts.

    I'm undecided as yet on whether I'll be going PS4, Xbox or PC in the next twelve months, but PLEASE only release to each platform when ready.

    Don't add in things like bookshelves and weapon racks if they're not going to work properly.

    Don't have meaningless DLC.

    Please let TES remain a ROLE PLAYING game. Don't appeal to the story-light, combat-heavy COD crowd.

    Here's hoping...

    I used to be dead-set against TES multiplayer but having gone back to Skyrim after long stint of Minecraft, it's got me thinking more about it.

    Let's say you have 4-8 friends in a game. Quests can only be performed once, making competition. A host could lock certain questlines for themselves (eg lock main quest, leave guild lines open to others) and set certain other parameters.

    Main reason I'd want multiplayer function is for more purpose to specialisations. I can make level 100 blacksmith improvements, mate might make level 100 enchantments. Thing is, I'm making these items and naturally I want to give them to party members or other players.

    The only way it could work well though would be to have servers and small numbers of players.

    NO MULTIPLAYER.

    Leave one of the few gems us single-player-only types have left.

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.

    Well, in that case, you need to STOP thinking again. Don't you.

    Stop thinking and eat a pie instead!
