ESO beta was terribad compared to Wildstar beta it's not even worth talking about anymore.
All the way to

Wildstar or ESO won't kill the game as a whole but will help cripple PvP for a bit.

Funnily enough. I liked the ESO beta. Stress test was so smooth. 70+ frames on highest settings, great character customization and fun skills. Felt a lot like Skyrim

This was huge for me. The engine alone is enough to make me move to ESO. I cranked up the settings to full, and got a smooth 100+ FPS.

With SWTOR on max video settings, I can get 60-70 FPS, and it always dips to 30-40 FPS in warzones.

That's enough for me right there.

I am gone when a better alternative comes out like Wildstar or something else PVP focused or at least somewhere where PVP isn't an afterthought. I've been a fanboy of this game since closed beta but things just don't seem to be getting better and I don't see them changing the PVE centric mindset.
I was going to start tearing your post to shreds till I saw the part about $3000 sank into this game..... now I just feel real sorry for you man.

I just read in another thread here that you have to key turn and click and the controls in general are horrible for pvp. Any truth to this?

Incorrect. Try playing some PvP, then get back to us.

Not at all. You can bind every one of your keys and turning is done with the mouse automatically. You don't have to hold down the right mouse button to turn.

I've heard folks say a lot of bad things about the ESO control scheme, but I find it a lot more responsive than SWTOR, AND a lot easier to deal with since you can only have five abilities on your bars/build at a time.

I am not happy, at least not any more. And everyone hates being taken for a fool.
I have been here from the very beginning, but not gonna renew sub now that I have seen the future plans.
Considering how many new flashpoints and operations have been already made, all we get is a new map.

Don't try to tell me creating a new warzone takes longer than a flashpoint.
How difficult could it be to make a new Voidstar-alike map in a castle or palace on Alderaan?
Or how long would it take to make a Novara Coast alike on Tatooine?

Would it be too much to ask to have 2-3 new maps every year?
Cause a new set of PVP gear is not considered to be content.

Most irritating is indeed the fact PVP in this game is still fun with all the issues, it has so much potential, but there seems to be not much of an effort to keep it alive. What a shame.
