Beta leaks are of those unfortunate things that seems to happen when you bundle together a highly-anticipated game in development with a closed beta and the wonders of the Internet. The MMORPG community can be a little rabid when it comes to new information at times, especially when it comes to games that are high on their radar. Take The Elder Scrolls Online for example. Radar aplenty.
Fans of The Elder Scrolls are curious how an MMORPG set in the same universe will pan out. MMORPG fans who are just hungry for a lore-rich world, fun dungeons and raids, and an open-ended class system have also taken notice. Crafters and RPers are curious. There’s also the PvP community who hopped aboard the second the development team uttered that tasty “raid vs. raid” phrase. TESO is gaining popularity among the MMORPG community, and that’s awesome. What’s isn’t as awesome is the effect that beta leaks sometimes have on that community.
