    I think it's cheap and lazy viral marketing for fancy mounts. Don't assume these are real players.

    This is what your agenda to milk insecurity and the need for exclusivity through gambling has done to the game, ZOS.

    I don't even want to log in anymore. Thanks for giving me another reason to loath humanity.

    Why care so much? If ppl want to waste their money its none of your concern. Ill never buy a crate but others can do whatever they please.

    Yeah its ironic how most of the comments that seem to get the rarest items in so few crates/packs are just so unbelievable and just trolling you just to make themselves look better than what they really paid for.

    I've had good luck with crates purchased with left over crowns from eso+, I believe I've only opened like 6 total but I have gotten some interesting things. if you can't/won't purchase crates then you should not shame those that can/do, sounds like someone might be projecting a bit.

    I bought half a dozen crates trying to get a wizard hat. What I got instead was an ugly apex mount that I had no interest in. It was not, and is not, a $300 mount. The crown store represents a game of chance, and the cost to play is pretty low.

    However, the cost of subverting all risks involved in order to certainly obtain the least likely of rewards is much, much higher. And it should be. That's the nature of dice games (e.g. RPGs).

    If you have no interest in playing, you've already won. You get to keep all your hard earned crowns. But raining on our parade because we've reaped the rewards of the risks we've taken is just petty.

    PS - I never got that wizard hat, but at least I know that it wasn't for lack of trying.

    As long as I pay my bills, feed and clothe my family and keep a roof over our heads, how I spend my money isn't anyone's business but mine. If I am sitting somewhere on a mount, whether it's one I got from a crown crate or one I bought with crowns, it isn't to show off to anyone. It's because I've got something else going on that needs real life attention. I stopped feeling the need to show off about the time I left my teen years behind.

    I'm not trying to be disrespectful to anyone, but unless we are grouped up for some reason or I'm waiting for someone in game, whatever I'm doing isn't about anybody else. It's about me and what I am trying to achieve.

    I really wish people would stop being so nasty about the crown crates. I happen to like them. I can still play nicely with people who don't because that's what grown ups do.

    Swtor CM kind of killed it for Bioware and now its happening in ESO paying more attention to the wallet than the community pretty bad.

    Thank you for making my point. This is precisely what is wrong with ZOS stooping to milk this aspect of humanity.

    They are leveraging the Elder Scrolls franchise to cater to the aspect of humanity that thrives on hatred and the unhappiness of others.

    I find that to be disgraceful.

    EDIT: Saying ZOS is unworthy of the Elder Scrolls name was going too far. They have created a great world with ESO. I just wish they didn't feel so panicky and short-term driven to fall into the cash shop micro-transaction trap.

    It is a desperate end-of-cycle scheme that kills games. Don't think so? Say hello to Rift, Tera, Black Desert, etc. I still don't get why they felt the need to rush to this so soon.

    It never occurred to the OP that people sometimes buy crates with the crowns they get from their subscriptions. The next step would be for him to criticize people who buy subscriptions, even though they're the people who pay to maintain this game. How about people just mind their own business and not rage over every little thing.

    Oh look one of the usual suspects, campaigning against crown crates for the ten zillonth time, I guess this was what the PAWS group decided on since bullying and harassing players on the forum hasn't worked out.

    Maybe you guys should try a third option? Because honestly this one is as lame as the shame anyone who admits to buying one tactic.


    EDIT
    Also it's awesome that the forum community is coming together to give these people a taste of their own medicine, it's about time we took our forums back.

    I have not idea which mounts those would be or if I have ever seen them. The fact that the OP knows the mounts so well seem to indicate some serious jealousy issues.

    Who cares what others spend? Who cares what they sit on? Go play the game.

    On console players congregated in towns setting mounted or not, and did pretty much nothing long before crown crates were even a thing.

    Dude, you are looking at everything in life all wrong lmao.

    You sound jelly. Lets for a moment say that these mounts cost $300+ (they don't by all accounts) why would that *** you off and make you not want to log in?

    Why wouldn't you just feel sorry for the grown ass losers who spend 300+ on a mount in a game they don't even play??

    These people would have no lives, feel bad not mad.

    I don't know anyone who spent $300 to get their mount. I got mine for $24. No one I know spent more than $50.

    You clearly have a problem with how people spend their money.

    same, did not pay more than about 20

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder OP. I personally find these mounts akin to the "sparkle ponies" the last game I played introduced. I don't find them to be desirable in the least. It's no different than the fact that I absolutely love, love, LOVE pizza...some people find it disgusting (not really sure what THEIR problem is :wink: ).

    I choose not to participate in the gamble boxes, and have missed out on some things I would have thrown my cash at had I been able to purchase it straight up. That's more ZOS' loss, as cash I would have given them remains solidly in my bank account.

    Enjoy the game, for in the end, that's what it is, a game.

    Travel Well!
