Post subject:  ESO Release Skype Party!

With the release of Elder Scrolls Online just around the corner, it's time for another Skype party!
You don't have to get the game or anything, and we're almost certainly not going to be chatting about the game the whole time - it's just a fun community event.

For those of you who haven't used Skype, it's a program that you download to your computer for free. Generally it works like a big conference call (video in the free version is only for 1-on-1), with everyone talking at once, and you can also just use text chat in these conversations if you can't/don't want to use a mic. All you need is to download it and create an account - you can create a non-personal one just for use with UESP, for example, if you don't want everyone knowing your personal one. (That's what I've done.)

So, who would be interested in this? What day/time would you want it - would you want it before/on early access (Sunday the 30th is when it starts), or the actual release date? Both? Anyone want to volunteer to host it?

If you're interested, please post your Skype name and I'll add you to the list for everyone.

mars007388. No preferred time or date, I'll just pop in when/if I can. Please refer to this picture for an accurate representation of me racing for the Skype party.

What the hey, I don't use Skype often enough. Count me in (maybe, my currently busy life permitting). If I can join in, I'll be there. If not... Alarra will weep great big sad tears for us all.

Note that I can't host due to my uncertainty of even being there. If left to run all day though, as said above, I'll pop in when I can.

The above paragraph was very much a "no duh" and probably could have gone without being said.

What's your Skype name, Venger? If you want to pop in, we'll need a way of inviting you to the group call.

That picture has to be the most hilarious thing I've seen recently. I'm still laughing.

As for the Skype call, I am interested, but only if I'm actually getting the game for release, which isn't really decided yet.

Chances are we'll probably just be doing random chatter more than discussion about the game, so don't just let game discussion put you off. ;)

MusicmanSteve247 is my username, and I'll be on late for the pre-release (5 extra days that come with the preorder), but should be on at a decent hour on the official release date.

Early access wold be best for me. Username on Skype is opingebr. Logged on as long as my PC is turned on, that doesn't necessarily mean I'm _active_.

I might be able to jump in, depending on the date and time.

Post subject:  Re: ESO Release Skype Party!

We should probably have one for the early access people and one for the official date, too. Just to be fair. :D

My Skype name is baratrongirl, but to be quite honest, I'm just going to be playing for the first five days :). I might have slowed down enough to be able to spare 15 minutes to talk by the time the main release comes around.

You can still play, even fullscreen, with Skype in the background! I did so myself during the last beta, ran around in Cyrodiil while talking on Skype. Works great. It just has a small box in the top corner of your screen with who's currently talking.

Oh, I am fully aware that it is *possible* for a person to play the game with Skype in the background. But that depends on whether you want to hear me saying all the bad words in the world and then some. Games make me sweary :D.

I'll join this happy little group. Skype name is Hellknightinflames.

Post subject:  Re: ESO Release Skype Party!

I'll add you to the first post. Just so everyone knows, I plan to do this again during the day on Friday, so if you see me on Skype that day, message me. ;)

EDIT: Never mind, I'm not as sure I'll be able to now. If I can, I can, if not, well, maybe some other time.
