it would suck.
no skills, only levels. (bethesda's advtange removed)
extreme time to level up. (bethesda's advtange removed)
Bad grapphics. (bethesda's advtange removed)
boring classes/skills/spells, (skill design was never bethesda's strong point).
boring enemies, (enemy design was never bethesda's strong point)
it will end as a crap wow clone and die.

Me too. The whole Elder Scrolls series is unique, almost a niche product. But once it goes online it is 1 of 1 mio. MMORPGs, struckling with all the game design issues encountered in a ORPG which I don't believe will be to its best.
I didn't really share in the excitement when the game was announced though.

In comparing it to WoW I think we're talking about two different beasts entirely. I see them almost as exact opposites, barring the fantasy elements of course. WoW always seemed gimicky to me, rooted too deep in fantasy and suspension of disbelief. Whereas the Elder Scrolls would strive to convince you that the entire world could thrive without you. I'll be very excited if they continue that trend, to be able to experience an even larger world with allies instead of alone (AI makes for terrible company). I'm just hoping they keep the action real time as in their original games.
Not to say it can't end up as a crappy WoW clone, that risk is always there with any MMORPG, but I don't think its fair to assume as much without more details. All in all I'm with Aerin on this one, I don't expect to regret the purchase.
