[Confirmed] Cyrodiil vendors will NOT be raised to V16

Considering that this is a pretty big deal as far as what in the world do we do with our tens of millions of AP, I feel it warrants discussion. For those of you who missed it: Wrobel dropped the bomb on ESO Live today when he stated that the Cyrodiil vendors will NOT be brought up to V16, period. Instead, the only way to get V16 PvP gear will be through Rewards of the Worthy.

His poorly articulated reasons included:

- "We don't want people to be able to just get the gear right away."
- "People have too much AP saved up."

As if that wasn't insulting enough, he mentioned the possibility of "looking into AP caps."

But that's all ok, right? It's not like the reason people have such obscene amounts of AP is literally because there is nothing to spend it all on. It's not like we didn't earn that AP and should thus be entitled to spend it on something worthwhile or anything.

Cyrodiil (the PvP map) is open-world and supports up to 2000 players in it at the same time. ESO’s client is designed to be able to handle (on the recommended spec) 200 players on screen at the same time.

    Yeah that makes no news in the current status. They want people to farm DLC in order to make profit. When the game was still B2P it had much better system.

    He never said it won't happen, they want to try and work the PvP bags into the system in a way that won't allow people who've hoarded ap to acquire all the gear the day it comes out

    It sounds like they want some form of a seasonal token gear system, but without having seasonal tokens because 'tokens are bad mmk'.

    Mighty Eagle.
    I fell out of my nest

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I screech I screech
    but no one hears me

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I started to wonder off
    I want to come back but lost my way.

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I came face to face
    Of Mighty Lion

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I came to fall in love with Mighty Lion
    Who's claws is sharp and just

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Then suddenly
    Mighty Dragon Came

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Dragon roared aloud
    Who's mighty paws make earthquake
    that quivers underneath our feet

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Soon battle rages
    Between the Mighty Lion and Mighty Dragon

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    My heart grows heavy
    For who do I belong in Scourge PS4 EU

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I continue to battle.
    But Battle I must do within myself

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I screech, I screech
    Long and hard. I made a fuss

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Then suddenly
    As if I was dreaming

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I heard a screech
    But suddenly, I attack Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle had to defend

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I know I was fighting for Mighty Lion
    So I fought back.

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I attack I attack
    But to no avail

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    The Mighty claws who's mighty claws
    Felt unnatural to me and very clumsy to me

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Why I have chosen to not stay with you
    I do not know. I am complicated at that.

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I have destroyed Mighty Eagle
    My own kin in Scourge PS4 EU

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I crawled into a ball
    Weep to no avail

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Lost in my whirling thoughts
    My heart and mind is clouded

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I have served Mighty Lion over a year
    I thought Mighty Lion is were I belong anew

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I finally contacted
    Mighty Eagle

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle says they love me
    In reality I love them also.

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I continued to clash
    At Mighty Eagle however

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    But clashing with Mighty Eagle
    Just not feel right


    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I have made a wrong choice I now believe
    Terrible and unjust of what I did

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    For am I not a monster
    For attacking a faction who loves me instead

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I was wrong
    Mighty Eagle was right

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Come. Please take me back Mighty Eagle
    For I believe I now know

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Were I truly belong
    For indeed I thought

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    That Mighty Lion
    Is were I belong.

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    O how I was so wrong Mighty Eagle
    I was gravely wrong and such a fool I was.

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    You have met
    Princess Justine

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Princess Justine who attacked
    Mighty Eagle

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I know this was wrong
    And so to does Princess Justine

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    With our clashing together
    I now know were I truly belong in Scourge PS4 EU I believe.

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Have you all not heard
    The famous saying. That is very wise and so very true?

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Let me repeat the famous saying
    that is very wise and so true

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    It is
    My Enemy, Enemy's, Enemy's
    Is my friend

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I come to thee Mighty Eagle
    And so to Princess Justine.

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Who used to serve Mighty Lion
    But Now serve Mighty Eagle
    For the very first time in her career.

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Princess Justine and are one in the same
    Were I go. She will go to. For she believes it is right choice

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    We are all yours
    O Mighty Eagle

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    No one else but you
    I feel peaceful. Unafraid

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I belong to you O mighty Eagle
    I am so relieved to hear myself to say that

    And why do players have millions AP stored? Because there is nothing useful for sale.

    Just scale the jewelry to v16 and make the rest drop in rewards of the worthy, that way pvpers has something to spend their AP on.

    They've dug their own hole with this. Originally there was nothing to spend AP on, so of course we accumulated it.

    Now they don't want to upgrade gear, because we have all this AP banked, because there was nothing to spend it on.

    To rub it in further, possibly capping our AP so we can't earn more?

    The icing on the cake is the well fitted end of campaign rewards.

    So what is the point of pvping?

    I don't get why they keep creating a new currency, then offering NOTHING to buy with it. I like farming AP, I like farming tel var. But why do it?

    Get your act together, ZOS. Take some of those older sets and start making them purchase-able with AP and Tel Var, leveled to the player. And none of your IDIOTIC GRAB BAG GARBAGE.

    Need an AP sink? Offer pieces of Briarheart for 100,000 AP each. I'd spend that much to get the V16 piece I'm missing. But no...you can't do that...because what would we do if we didn't have to run the same boring delves 300 times to get the armor.

    Not so fast! Wrobel also took a minute to explain that Well-fitted will be a good trait now because he increased sprint speed 10%.

    I couldn't make that up if I tried.

    ZOS logic makes complete sense if you look at it from the perspective of making as much money as possible while giving little care to what players want.

    If you look at it from the players perspective like most normal people and devs do, then...
