The ESO Shot: Episode 5 – ESO vs GW2!

Welcome to the 5th episode of The ESO Shot, a light-hearted quick down and dirty show about anything relevant in the Elder Scrolls Online community.   The ESO Shot is hosted by me (@Sparhawk), and this week we’ll be comparing ESO and GW2!  After destroying last week’s challenge, I’ve decided to issue another challenge to you, the viewers.  If this video or any following ESO Shots get 10,000 views, I’ll be giving away an Orbweaver Gamepad from Razer!  If you enjoy this podcast, be sure to like, comment, and subscribe to have a chance at winning that epic prize!  Congratulations to William Conner, the winner of last week’s prize, the BlackWidow Elite Keyboard, from Razer.  Enjoy!

    Looks like someone else read the ESO is GW2 set in Tamriel thread. Hopefully after the less constructive posts were purged :D

    Relax, I’m only being serious.

    Haven’t played GW2, but based on what you just said it sounds like ESO will be succesfull and it still has room for improvement.

    Sparhawk, you need to just start up a video blog and talk sense to all of the angry, ignorant people out there trying to bad mouth and troll ESO for no good reason. Maybe you can try to get more people to watch too by giving away a prize? You could also bring on special guests onto the blog some times too.

    I was joking above obviously! Great job as usual man, keep it up!

      Now going by The Gray Watcher, TGW, Gray, The Gray Tank, and The Gray Warden. Pick a name or invent a new one people!

    Nice video and I am a Veteran Myself. I am currently playing Tera and really enjoying there combat style. The thing I dislike about Tera and what I love about Elder Scrolls is female armor…., but hey some people like that style of gaming. I am very happy that even though we are several months out from ESO launch we have dedicated gamers making shows like this for other gamers to enjoy and discuss.

    I have played GW2 ever since it launched, and honestly it feels like its dieing on me. I just can’t WAIT for ESO to come out and fill in the gap that GW2 has left for me. ELDER SCROLLS FOR THE WIN!!!

    Got an arrow in the knee? Not my fault. Totally not my fault… It was Toby’s… And his dog… That uses a blowgun.

    Great video.  Thanks for the insightful comparisons.  My wife and I tried GW2 but couldn’t get into it. This video actually helped me identify some of the things that may have been underlying system issues that kept us away.

    The comparison made was good and I agree with everything in the video but ESO will only do good (lots of people online) if they have end game content which at the moment sounds as if there wont be much  and so it wont really bring you back. On the other hand we have a year to wait and they could announce some really good end game stuff.

    @Nutjomes Watch episode 4 brother!  It should answer all your end game questions.
