Game Performance Issues on Console

    A lot of issues fixed but now lag on some of my alts. I had broken mementos on my main since DB that finally got fixed, seems like emotes work more often too, not much lag otherwise. On my alts, I now have silhouette players for a bit when loading plus lag, and at least a 3 second delay when playing any emotes.

    3 seconds.. about the same time it takes textures to load. The magic number eh?

    At times, the lag inside Veteran Maelstrom Arena makes it impossible to play.

    A lot of weird things have happened in my last 9 runs:
    -Not being able to interrupt NPC by bashing. (Essentially results in you bashing 3-4 times at him with nothing happening and dying)
    -Random blue screen crash that us PS4 user have grown accustom to seeing.
    -Struggling to enter overload mode. (Have to press 3-4 times)
    -In Overload: can't do any light attack. The arm animation shows the light attack, but nothing is firing.
    -In Overload: can't do any light attack. The full animation is showing but the NPC are not taking any damage.
    -In Overload: Everything working as intended but still see my dual wield weapons...
    -Streaking through the map (Stage 7) and couldn't see anything.
    -Liquid Lightning : The circle would appear at the ground, but no Liquid Lightning.
    -Liquid Lightning : The actual Liquid Lightning only appearing 2-3 seconds after the circle appearing at the ground.

    Other skills something don't trigger like they should, somewhat like Liquid Lightning. Seems to happen more often when the lag is bad and you are cancelling your skills with a barswap or blocking.



    I saved clips of a few of those weird behaviours.

    Cyrodiil is lagging unplayable bad but I also experience a lot of lag in Maelstrom arena. I wonder why the performance is this bad. ZOS doesn't offer any help or solutions, probably being busy with adding stuff to the crown store.

    Have character's faces always been getting stuck in whatever emote you use? I just noticed this today. I use the cheer and it stays in ugly smile, I use headache and it gets stuck with a sad face. Not to mention the delay when using emotes on all my alts, and only my alts for whatever dumb reason.

    @YautjaLanu there are many threads on VMA bugs in the general discussion just don't bother they will read it but not do a thing about it unless you are a famous streamer. this is one of the reasons tensions are so high on these forums.

    I got a random loading screen in the middle of cyrodil yesterday, by the time I'd come out of it I'd obviously been killed. Thought that'd been dealt with? I also fell through the floor while using critical rush, I just continued to fall in a mad spiral for a couple of minutes before it put me back. Not really sure what happened there. I'd only charged towards the npcs in the centre of a resource...

    I'm having a lots of animation freeze's and latency with some time's 2 seconds screen freeze atm.
    weapon swap is even more terrible now than yesterday .
    overall the game feels like stuttering and struggling to move around .. especially when mounted

    This is the most extensive right AFTER each maintenance since a month now for me .

    Just wanted to report this

    Lead Dev: Alright everyone, before we go into maintenance, let's draw from the hat to see what we'll break this time.
    Dev Jim: *drooling*
    *draws slip of paper from hat*
    LD: oooooo, looks like weapon swapping will stay bugged AND we'll be doing something new- When a player swings their weapons at enemies, it's like they'll be swinging at nothing, their hits won't register!
    *boardroom erupts in laughter*
    LD: Also, lets keep the lag again...
    Boardroom: What lag?

    Yep, every patch and or maintenance will f#ck something up. Just this morning I noticed that my 'Eternal hunt' set doesn't produce a rune every dodge roll. Weapon swapping doesn't work half the time, has high latency.

    Stop making stupid dlc's, fix the game.

    Hey guys,

    In order to help us track down the exact issues you’re seeing, we’d like to get some very specific information from you. If you’re running into invisible monsters and/or NPCs, if things are not fully loading in, or if you have extremely low FPS, please post exactly which area you’re experiencing this (and include which problem you’re having). The more specific you can be, the better.

    Thanks in advance!

    Started to get the screen freezes too, especially when killing multiple mobs, found that doing a full shutdown and restart of the ps4 stops it happening for a good while, though strangely, swapping out my gear for another set or using the dye station brings the screen freezes back immediately.

    I'm wondering if the new dlc's have been coded with the slightly more powerful specs of the ps4 pro as a benchmark, if so, our normal ps4's may continue to have issues.

    this is getting a bit unplayable , each time any mob or something dies 2 secs screen freeze while the action goes on resulting in dead in dungeon .

    i'd really love to see a fix for that . Why is there always a serious flaw in gameperformance ?
    kinda frustrating this way

    @ZOS_GinaBruno

    For me and several I play with, we have termed it 'destro lag'. Very specifically, in dungeons and trials, if you don't execute a /reloadui in the chat prompt, you will have destro lag if you use one. Anytime something dies from a destro attack, it's what I see.

    Also, any word on the screen freezes and system to blue screen in trials? That is really getting hugely annoying, especially on the twins fight in vMOL. Its dumb that the screen freezes and bluescreens win the day in vMOL almost every time we go in there.

    As an example, on Sunday of this past week, around 9 eastern time, my group experienced what we now call the DC Monster. 5 to 6 people would DC on each and every pull of the twins. It would start with one or two, then by execute time, 3 or 4 more would drop. Each and every time. During the week, it is there, but not nearly as bad. Saturday and Sunday, forget it, don't even bother anymore.

    For the last week or so i've been getting this weird lag.Game runs fine for me for a while when i first log in.After a while though,whenever i kill a mob i get a 1 second lag spike when it dies. Killing groups of mobs is just unbearable.Even doing something like an anchor is just too annoying at this point.

    Hope this gets sorted out soon,makes it unplayable for me.

    *UPDATE*

    Nm. I found what the problem is.It's when i use a polymorph to change my appearence.Only way to stop it is to close out ESO and log back in.At least i know what causes it for me and is easily avoidable for now.

    Oddly enough it seems to do the same thing if i switch characters without completely closing ESO out as well.

    I have this same issue but it's on and off. I was in Cyrodiil one night with out much issue. I then decide to do DSA and had so much lag with the mobs it was nearly unplayable and the lag definitely worsens when the mobs die. I get a few seconds delay.

    I noticed last night when I did Darkshade was that if I attacked from the distance I did not lag as much. But If I used puncturing sweeps the lag worsened.

    no maintenance this week for ps4 ?
    there's much lag since yesterday evening , mounting & dismounting and some class abilities have effect like a second or two later . Game freezes sometimes in combat (especially when using AoE)
    the game performance is bad , i don't wanna play the game like this
    i mean i logged in and getting way to frustrated in 10 mins time i don't wanna bother anymore , this game IS NOT for ps4 should have kept it that way ESO


    am i the only one experiencing this or what ? other online games run smooth with my it connection ..
    i tested my connection on ps4 it sais 8.6 Mbps down and 2.0 up .
    if this is to low to play ESO why not specify a minimum speed when selling boxes ?

    so , am i the only one having weapon swap animation delayed each time for a true second ??

    This is nearly 2017 but online game developers didn't yet figured a reliable and fast package distribution from their damn servers over the ocean !
    Sorry but i need to vent out the rage in me caused by this kind of performance in modern days game's

    Can anyone from Zenimax studio honor us with an answer WTF is going on? I can't play the game on my PS4 since yesterday. Everytime I log in I'm getting an error and the game crashes. There is no official word about this issue yet and that's just not cool and not fair to us players.

    Right now the game is completely unplayable and waste of my money.
