I was an idiot. I love the Elder Scrolls series, I beta tested the online game, I was truly anxious for the launch.
Monsters are hugely overpowered. In single instances where you can't get help. Worse than that however, is that Zenimax is exerting ZERO control over spammers selling in-game gold for real cash. You want to talk to people in-zone? You want to seek teammates? Interested in joining a guild? Having problem with a quest you can't beat? If you try to send out a message in-zone to seek out teammates or just someone to help you out, your message is instantly overwritten by spammers wanting your cash for gold. I was a sucker. I paid for a 6 month subscription, and I feel used. No, raped. $177 for a 6 month subscription to a game that is unplayable to people who want community. Zenimax has overpowered their solo player instances, and totally fails to police the chat users. I'm done. Have fun with the money you stole from me Zenimax, I'm reloading Skyrim on my PC, and I'm telling everyone I know to avoid your product.
