Why doesn't ZOS publicly address issues with their games?

I've seen ZOS talking about being in love with people's money and talking about their husbands, but not one time have I seen any of them address game balancing, or major issues like performance, mementos still broken, and orcinium constantly crashing people.

Other than that, they just do the typical moderator messages for the most part. Would it really hurt to have ZOS actually interact with the community's threads relating to the game?

    You haven't been looking hard enough then. Can't say I've seen anything regarding mementos (which by the way work on my Vampire but not my main so it could be a Lv50 issue...) but for game balancing replies try Combat & Mechanics where all that is discussed and as far as Orsinium crashing goes I haven't had a game crash in Orsinium in a good while myself.

    TL;DR - If you got this far without reading the entire post you're either too lazy or suck at reading comprehension and probably don't belong in a public forum anyway. Just move along, you wouldn't understand.

    How about you provide evidence instead of mindlessly telling me to do something better. There is a Z button to click to see their posts, everytime I click it, it's either moderation or non-game specific discussions.

    It really shouldn't be though. To be perfectly honest when I saw that thread someone started a couple of patches back with all the bugs listed with evidence and Zos devs were jumping in telling us they were looking at them I had a resurgence of faith in this company, however that was quickly dashed by Zos either flat out denying their existence or saying that they could not replicate the bugs.

    as far as Orsinium crashing goes I haven't had a game crash in Orsinium in a good while myself.

    Really? Maybe I took all your crashes. I had 4 crashes last night walking from the writ drop off to the Orsinium Wayshrine. It took me a good 15 minutes to make the journey. Fun times.

    I frame rate lag heading that way but never crash. I play on PS4 NA though so if you are on a different console/server perhaps they just have it worse...

    Actually this is not always the case . Many times Jessica has addressed an issue and many people immediately thank her for it . Even if it has to be repeated several times , the players actually get more patient at least knowing they're putting efforts out .

    I understand that's probably an unpleasant job to do but communication helps calm people down . The one time statement and then no updates is what seems to frustrate people most .

    Because if they took time out to address every person's concern about every aspect of game balancing that every person doesn't like about every build in every patch ... they'd never get anything else done.

    Honestly there are tons of bugs in in this game no doubt but a huge majority are learn to play issues and ZOS trying to appease casuals. I meet ppl that are like cp 300 plus every day and know sooooooooooo little about this game it down right scares me. I meet them every day. Makes me sad and angry at the same time.

    I don't blame them for publicly addressing anything on this forum.

    Example posts:

    p: group finder broken
    zos: we are looking into it
    p: that is what u said last year
    p: lol.. group finder tool.. lolol ahahaah lol
    zos: we find the problem.. we will update next patch
    p: about time.. why not have a hot fix now?
    p: lol lol group finder tool
    p: they need to hire better programmers
    .........
    .....

    So ya i can see why they wouldn't publicly address stuff more often.

    Agree. Well, agree about Zos discussing various issues through multiple means. If a player wants to keep up with the information just pay attention to the various outlets Zos uses to discuss matters of the game.

    I cannot agree or even speak to momentous working on your vamp but not your main. Need me info, lol

    There was once a myth called "Balance in an MMORPG" and people believed it was possible, thus began an 18 year pogrom on PVP balance in MMO's which I like to call the 'Dark Ages of PVP'.

    But there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Warcraft has now instituted a baseline stat system in PVP and I find it brilliant and a right step in the right direction. So basically stats are 'normalized' now so its entirely a skill based competition with gear mattering not at all.

    Think Halo multi-player PVP and you are the right area. I have always lobbied for a separation of the base PVE game and the PVP game especially in today's MMO's where a more Action oriented combat relies more heavily on player skill and not spell rotation.

    I think the very word causes confusion on the definition of balance. We should call them tweaks in present and future tense and just changes in past tense and no one would think its going to actually make it perfect.

    The effort Zenimax makes is similar to Blizzard in vanilla WoW I think, inexperienced using an amazing world but they do try hard.
