    Lol wut? All three factions have several players in Australia who are just looking for PvP. Ok sure, taking an enemy's home keeps when there is no one on to defend is pretty lame, and an unopposed scroll run seems like a terrible bore, but there are so many more significant issues with PvP that are causing people to leave the game- and that's ultimately why "night-capping" is an issue in the first place. There will always be people who actually like to PvDoor and take back the map in the morning.

    You might as well tell people to stop zerging while you're at it.

    Your nightcap is Aussie's primetime.

    Yep which is why there should be a campaign timelocked to Ausie prime time instead of US time and the rest being timelocked to US time.

    That way the Ausie and nightworking players have a server where they have much better chance of action and they wont break the game for people in the prime time.
    I hope you understand how ridiculous this sounds

    sounds to me like a low lvl EP player who QQ's to much cuz her/his faction refuses to night cap. OMFG different time zones dude/girl. EU players play on NA when NA players sleep. its not night capping its purely called different time zones. I don't see us calling a pacific cough cough methuselah/daniel a night capper do you? NO its purely different time zones so get off your pedestal!

    as for methuselah and Daniel just used you guys as an example. no harm

    They should just remove pvp from this game. It's so far gone and broke that it's not even fun. Not to mention pushing many players away. It's clear Zenimac doesn't know how to fix their game, or there would have been at least some kind of improvement.

    What about them pesky morning cappers and then the worst ones who are prime time cappers? If a map is a solid color it only means one thing......the other two factions got out played (doesn't matter what time of the day it is). End of story and please just stop with the QQ as it's not even worth mentioning 2 years after launch.

    I must say,

    My faction got really outplayed at 5am in the morning when suddenly 2 zergs of 'aussie players' (sarcasm) came online at only 1 faction...... dont act like night capping doest happen and that we just got 'outplayed'

    I get how u feel but cyrodill is an active war zone. If I was a general and I knew the enemy cap soldiers are all napping id kick my men awake and say lets go drop a bomb on these snoozing noobs. You snooze u lose? Wahahaa.

    Jokes aside I stay in Singapore which shares the gmt+8 time zone wit Aussies and most of the people I play with are Aussies. There are a significant number of people who are not playing during your prime time. You seem to think that only tiny groups of 3-5 players are playing who actually live in these time zones. As someone from these time zones I'm doing my civic duty of informing you that this assumption is just that; an assumption. There are tons of people who play during those times and it's actually a small minority of people actually night capping. Your asking zos to nuke the majority of us who play with no mal intent to deal with the small minority of night cappers.

    This has been an issue - forever. The real solution is to find people who play for your faction in these time slots when the enemy is PvDooring your campaign - and have the PvD people get farmed by an organized group:

    I'm an Aussie Dc player and i support this post. However the majority of the time we are grossly out numbered (don't get me wrong some nights the US guys play late and we do ok but for the most part we are way outnumbered) even if we did band together I am not to sure we could pull to much off.

    What's really funny is that it's OP's faction that is the most notorious for doing it. The real fix would be to force the other side of the world to play a different faction, for the dread of Sithis! What's with the seemingly pathological fixation with elves and kittens? There are two other factions, you know.

    So anytime you are not on is night capping... Catch a clue. I live in Cali so when I get home from work at 4:30 pm and play for a couple of hours the east coast ad are then signing off for the night. Then the UK and Aussies are on thier prime time which happens to be your night time.... No one gets up in the middle of the night to grief you. Well I might.... If I didn't have a job.... Like EP. Whoops that was supposed to be my internal voice. My bad.

    Maybe for your main campaign, not for mine.

    If you're feeling abit salty or mad for what some nightcappers did on the EP then you know how I feel.

    Also sure for US I can understand that this is very hard to understand for you guys and that nightcapping isnt really a thing on US as the East and West have very different timezones. But in EU where its pretty much all one time zone (couple hours ahead or behind maybe) its a different story.

    Im sorry if im offending some people with what I have said about the status of Nightcaps on the EU servers, I wasnt thinking of the US, apologies.

    I mean it is not AD's fault they have a 40-60 man 'organized' team running around. When I have been online with z group running around I can normally muster ~5 people?

    BTW the EP emp push last night was fun, epic and how it should be. From 1 keep to go to 3 in the matter of minutes. Zone chat was a troll fest as well as DC's obsession with scolls continued to help EP's emp push by taking AD's Black Bootay and Blood man.

    Night capping would not be such a big problem if small groups could actually fight back against the bigger groups (if they know what they're doing). My issue is not with the nightcappers, but with the zerg ballers who continue to zerg even when it's clear that they outnumber the opposition 10 to 1. The fact that you've pushed the other 2 alliance to their last 2 keeps should tell you just how much opposition you're facing. And yet, most of the time, these zerg groups see 5 enemies taking a resource, and suddenly they're stacking up and letting the barriers fly. I mean, really? Against 5 people? lol.

    The 3 bars against the 1 bar of the other 2 factions should be a good indication as well.

    Well simple fix to this problem, players are only allowed to PVP when and players agree what time is playable. No more 24/7 PVP, only when it's convenient for the other and we will have no deaths and no clear winning side, so we all get sticker for participation.

    @MountainHound is known as a CN leader (believed to be the leader of the PuG / group number 7 ;-) so if he's seen, there's the possibility of a full 24 person raid popping out of stealth. Better to be safe than sorry and waste a minute of a few more peoples' time taking the resource than get bombed. There's also the Continuous Attacks buff that can be refreshed for everyone, so if 50 opponents come to the resource, it's very possible that they all want their buff and don't really care about the one opponent there.

    I've had the same thing happen to me a lot lately - I've been running mostly solo or 2-4 person groups the past 2 months, and we'll have full raid groups descend upon us when seen somewhere. I generally assume it's because someone says, "Oh my god! I saw Crown! The #CrownZerg must be there! Hey everyone the whole AD population is at Aleswell mine get there now!" It makes me laugh, and if my presence somewhere can pull a full raid group away from an actual fight, then I've probably been more effective for the campaign than if I were fighting as part of a larger group.
