Maintenance for the week of December 9:
• [COMPLETE] PC/Mac: NA and EU megaservers for patch maintenance – December 9,  4:00AM EST (09:00 UTC) - 8:00AM EST (13:00 UTC)

So my subscription has 2 weeks left. Last plea for a better ESO+.

    At about fifteen bucks per month, I would suggest making adjustments in your budget (cancel HBO like I did and use movietube.org instead) and go with the ESO + membership to fund the game we love so we can continue playing tomorrow.

    LOL. I don't love this game. I hate it. I kind of enjoy it sometimes but I mostly hate it. I said so earlier (maybe a different thread). It's like some compulsion you get some perverse enjoyment from but hate that you do....like biting your nails.

    I don't play with anyone that loves this game. None of us like it....but we are all still here. We can't really say why....but it can't go on forever. And it doesn't. Many have left.

    Are you serious? I don't know anyone at Zenimax. My kids don't play with their kids. We don't go to church together.

    They are a business supplying a product for a price.

    You are suggesting people pay money to a corporation without asking what they are providing for the money. lol

    I did it for a year... out of good faith and pretty much every single justification that was given to us for the subscription fee was completely abandoned.

    Gidorick,

    I don't know if you have kids, but often times parents will pay their kids for work. Chores for allowance. And it never fails that kids will ask for their allowance in advance of the chores. And if you agree, it never fails they will not do the chores on time and in full.

    In rhetrospect this game probably should have failed outright at launch. But too many of us thought it would be something different/special/ and/or had affection for TES series and let it color our judgement.

    LOL @olemanwinter. You are so right. I remember doing that a few decades ago with my parents.

    And my affection for the TES series is the only... I repeat... the ONLY reason I'm playing ESO. If this game was in any other world than Nirn, I would have never even given it a second look.

    Well said @olemanwinter . From now on it's money only after ZOS actually delivers a DLC. Last christmas was the proper time for new area. Now it is just like with kids - time to get firm and to stop giving leeway.

    It looks like one of these is happening in ZOS:
    - They follow a rigid two year business plan to maximize profits. They anticipated PC sub loyalty lasts upto one year. Consoles last to next christmas. Then switch to maintenance mode and put everything on sale in crown shop.
    - They have serious quality issues or too small teams. Console project got too big. Everything else was stopped and no DLC is ready and they need another half year to make it. Switch to B2P because subs will get angry and because consoles.

    We are fighting for a better eso plus but we cannot get zos to comment on it at all this time they are dead silent on the matter.

    I'll resub when it's worth it for me to do so. The crowns offered by the sub are more expensive than the best pack one can purchase for cash. They have failed to keep so many promises they have either made outright, or implied. At the moment this isn't worth $13.00 (6 month) sub for me.

    I do think they they have some code control problems in the studio. They break way too much stuff with updates and patches that were working before. It has gotten better, but I am not sure if it is because they got themselves under control or whether they just have had fewer opportunities lately.

    Server side lag is a quandary. I don't experience it enough to matter in Blackwater Blade NA and I spend no time in the veteran Campaigns, so my personal experience is that this is a non-issue. I think they know exactly what causes the lag, and my spidey sense says that if they fixed the obvious cause the players would scream and leave in greater numbers than lag is causing. Instead, they are trying to find a fix that eliminates or reduces lag while keeping players happy. It is possible that there is some long term rework going on in the background.

    Poor game concepts... lack of an AH "that's worth a damn", banking system, grouping. Those are personal opinions, and ones that I generally do not agree with .
    • The Kiosk concept is perfect for a TES game and ESO and fits into the world quite nicely. I am thankful almost every day that they did not do a global auction house, or anything like it. If they could add some trader locations and resolve the bidding issues, it would be much better.
    • If by "banking system" you mean number of slots to store things, then you get no sympathy from me. The lack of GM control in guild banks is a problem, but it is not something that is a mainstream problem.
    • I think that grouping is more complicated than a lot of people realize. A lot of what people ask for in grouping are obvious avenues to exploits. The LFG tool seems to be under-utilized and I think people think it is broken because they don't understand how grouping is intended to work. ZOS would be well served to sit down and explain grouping a lot more clearly instead of following the path of it being "self documenting".

    Exploits and Cheating was not mentioned. In light of the recent action by Blizzard, it probably is worth mentioning that lack of action is not an indication of lack of interest.

    Inability to fix issues. This is really part of the larger issue. When you set aside design decisions, which are deliberate or working properly, even if people think the game is "broken", you still have a laundry list of bugs and incomplete features. Chat bubbles, which are still in beta, would be one example of an incomplete feature. A lot of people would toss UI into that, but some of the UI things that people think are incomplete are actually deliberate design decisions. Numerous bugs of various severities, from audio and animation issues to skill and ability problems, still exist in the game. While they are knocking them down, it is a slow process. Too slow. ZOS simply is not big enough to handle the game in the current state.I think that they think they are, but they have made concessions on parts of the game, including the original vision.

    To them, this game will probably be good enough for what they are attempting to accomplish, but I fear that the players will forever see a game that will never be finished. I mean that in the context of an MMO, so be careful how you read that. There will always be critical function and features that should have been there already, but are either not on the radar or often promised, but never delivered.

    I find this thread really depressing.

    ESO is the only real F2P MMO I ever played.

    This isn't a F2P MMO. You had to purchase the "box" so to speak. There is an initial outlay of money to be able to download/install the game, thus it is not F2P.

    I suggest you go check out Craptic...err...Cryptic games and three titles of theirs. Three IP's that they totally ruined, imnsho.

    Champions Online.
    Star Trek Online.
    Neverwinter.

    All three of those intellectual properties have been totally ruined by the company by making them F2P. Costs you absolutely nothing to be able to download any of them or even all of them.

    Go ahead, I double dog dare you. Play those games and then come back here and suggest that anything in this thread is an abomination that you are "sick of hearing about".

    Go and experience for yourself how badly a game developer can ruin things. We've got it pretty good here right now, but there is room for improvement...which is what we all want. Improvement.

    Neverwinter is certainly a lot more fun than this game, which I probably played for a total of 3 hours after purchase and then uninstalled and never logged in again. It was a total waste of $60, and it's certainly not worth what they're selling it for.

    It almost felt like a scam.

    lol. yep. Which is the one of the many reasons I un-subbed.

    The reason that ZOS didn't release a DLC pack the DAY they went Buy to Play is beyond me. To go 6 months with pretty much no CONTENT incentive to sub is crazy! Either ZOS made SO much money from the Subs that we all paid them over the past year, or mama-company Zenimax media is having to support them... well there IS the third option, that the Crown Store is providing them with enough revenue to continue operations. I just don't see that being the case.

    Of course it's going to break in ways they "don't expect". How else would it break? On purpose?

    Just because something is an accident doesn't make it okay.

    More and more Zos reminds me of my 7 year old son.

    The other day he tooks his mother's contact lenses (the little two-pod carrier) and played with them like a space ship...and lost the contacts out of it.

    Not really sure what point you're trying to make. Did you send him to bed without dinner? How does this correlate? But yes I agree my wording was somewhat poor, lets go with "stuff breaking, accidentally", rather. But honestly, glitches happen, accidents are forgivable, but misleading your consumer base, particularly without adequate explanation, is not.

    Add in the fact in the long run it might be worth just buying the dlc instead of going through ESO+ that only lets you (RENT) the dlc. If you stop paying for eso plus you will loose all your dlc same goes if you lapse a month.

    If the dlc end up been 20-30 dollars a pop
    Over 15 dollars a month
    They said it takes at least 4 months to make a new area
    So at the very best 5 months after testing
    5x15 75 dollars
    Or 20-30 dollars one time payment

    So as it stands the best option is to just not to give zos any money and then just buy the dlc every 5-6 months you would be saving alot and only missing out on 10% exp bonus that you dont even notice.

    My plan, @Heromofo, is to sub for one month when a DLC comes out, play the DLC. If I make it though the DLC and I don't feel the need to own it. Cool beans, I just got the DLC for $15. If I want to own it... I'll just use the 1500 Crowns I got from the 1 month sub, add some more crowns, and buy the DLC. It's like a paid demo with zero risk!

    If the dlc end up been 20-30 dollars a pop
    Over 15 dollars a month
    They said it takes at least 4 months to make a new area
    So at the very best 5 months after testing
    5x15 75 dollars
    Or 20-30 dollars one time payment

    So as it stands the best option is to just not to give zos any money and then just buy the dlc every 5-6 months you would be saving alot and only missing out on 10% exp bonus that you dont even notice.

    My plan, @Heromofo, is to sub for one month when a DLC comes out, play the DLC. If I make it though the DLC and I don't feel the need to own it. Cool beans, I just got the DLC for $15. If I want to own it... I'll just use the 1500 Crowns I got from the 1 month sub, add some more crowns, and buy the DLC. It's like a paid demo with zero risk!

    Those Exclusive Items and Store Discounts are really enticing.

    When compared to what ESO+ gives you...

    There's just no doubt that ESO+ is lacking... Now, that being said... The Secret World doesn't give subscribers access to their Expansions (They call Issues, like a comic!)... so the more DLC that comes out for ESO, the more enticing the Subscription will become.

    Indeed.... the whole ESO+ subscription is half-hearted. It's like they sat down in a meeting to discuss what ESO+ should entail and they took the first 3 things that were said and was like "well... good enough! Let's get a hoagie."
    What ESO really needs is an Auction Horse.
    That's right... Horse.
