    I'm intrigued.... Upcoming GAMEPLAY changes in the next PTS patch... that doesn't sound like the odd 2% buff or nerf here and there...

    Stating its gameplay makes it sound a bit more significant & weighty... or maybe I'm just reading too much into it.

    I am not sure if they would make big changes again those changes wouldn't be really testable and if needed tuned for launch :-| .

    Some game play changes (that is code for nerfs). This is from tomorrow's broadcast. In an effort to make the game healthy we have converted everyone to Warden. We have removed all weapons and armor and when you light attack your character says pew pew pew. When you heavy attack you character says bam bam bam. We will be charging your credit cards $39.99 for pay to play. You can get your power back but it will cost you...

    Ooo we're guessing, I'll bite.

    I don't think they can do anything too large this close now but... I have two feelings.

    1. Decrease the time it takes to heavy attack, a revision of the prior increase.

    2. CP enabled battlegrounds

    I think major skill changes are locked in at this point.

    The same thing, more class nerfs and the reason why they feel they are needed regardless of community feedback. I made my main a Templar, with these class changes I will probably never play again. If the class changes are getting worse, my main wont matter, I will not be playing the game any longer .....

    I am very concerned that all these changes will make it impossible for me to complete content i am used to being able to complete now and then to think i was concerned a while ago with the lower ceiling statement that my progression would be stopped by becoming to easy.

    Make up your mind about how you want your game to play please, we like to have fun not chase the next bis set that will be made into pos the next patch and figure out how to play.

    Love the ESO live broadcasts though and appreciate it you do those.

    Born, Bred & Made in Manchester UK, RIP 22 Angels. 22/05/2017

    PC-EU

    The Place by Tony Walsh Please Read
    This is the place in the North West of England

    It’s ace, it’s the best and the songs that we sing

    From the stands, from our bands set the whole planet shaking

    Our inventions are legends! There’s nowt we can’t make and



    So we make brilliant music. We make brilliant bands

    We make goals that make souls leap from seats in the stands

    And we make things from steel and we make things from cotton

    And we make people laugh, take the mick summat rotten



    And we make you at home and we make you feel welcome

    And we make summat happen, we can’t seem to help it

    And if you’re looking for history then yes, we’ve a wealth

    But the Manchester way is to make it yourself



    And make us a record, a new number one

    And make us a brew while you’re up, love. Go on!

    And make us feel proud that you’re winning the league

    And make us sing louder and make us believe it



    that this is the place that has helped shape the world

    And that this the place where a Manchester girl

    Name of Emmeline Pankhurst from the streets of Moss Side

    Led a Suffragette City with sisterhood pride



    And this is the place with appliance of science

    We’re on it, atomic, we strut with defiance

    In the face of a challenge we always stand tall

    Mancunians in union delivered it all



    Such as housing and libraries, and health, education

    And unions and co-ops, the first railway station

    So we’re sorry! Bear with us! We invented commuters!

    But we hope you forgive us – we invented computers!



    And this is the place Henry Royce strolled with Rolls

    And we’ve rocked and we’ve rolled with our own Northern Soul

    And so this is the place to do business, then dance

    Where go-getters and goal setters know they’ve a chance



    And this is the place where we first played as kids

    And me Mam lived and died here, she loved it she did

    And this is the place where our folks came to work

    Where they struggled in puddles, they hurt in the dirt



    And they built us a city. They built us these towns

    And they coughed on the cobbles to the deafening sound

    Of the steaming machines and the screaming of slaves

    They were scheming for greatness, they dreamed to their graves



    And they left us a spirit, they left us a vibe

    The Mancunian Way to survive and to thrive

    And to work and to build, to connect and create and

    Greater Manchester’s greatness is keeping it great



    And so this is the place now we’ve kids of our own

    Some are born here, some drawn here but we all call it home

    And they’ve covered the cobbles, but they’ll never defeat

    All the dreamers and schemers who still teem through these streets



    Because this is a place that has been through some hard times

    Oppressions, recessions, depressions and dark times

    But we keep fighting back with Greater Manchester spirit

    Northern grit, northern wit in Greater Manchester’s lyrics



    And there’s hard times again in these streets of our city

    But we won’t take defeat and we don’t want your pity

    Because this a place where we stand strong together

    With a smile on our face, Mancunians Forever



    And we’ve got this* as the place where a team with a dream (*Forever Manchester)

    Can get funding and something to help with their scheme

    Because this is the place that understands your grand plans

    We don’t do No Can Do, we just stress Yes We Can!



    Forever Manchester’s a charity for people round ‘ere

    You can fundraise, donate. You can be a volunteer

    You can live local, give local. We can honestly say

    We do charity differently, that Mancunian Way



    And we fund local kids, and we fund local teams

    We support local dreamers to work for their dreams

    We support local groups and the great work they do

    So can you …help us help… local people like you?



    Because this is the place in our hearts, in our homes

    Because this is the place that’s a part of our bones

    ‘Cos Greater Manchester gives us such strength from the fact

    That this is the place. We should give something back.

    Always remember. Never forget. Forever Manchester.

    The fact that they are doing a broadcast to detail final gameplay changes seems to indicate there will be something significant coming. Hopefully it involves some type of adjustment to their sustain nerf; reverting the nerf to armor passives would be welcomed. Too much nerfing too quickly is really detrimental to the entire player population, things like this should be done slowly and monitored for effectiveness... clearly on PTS it was WAY too much and turned gameplay into a boring 'heavy attack' fest... and with the increase of time for HAs, it really makes it even worse.

    Yeah. At this point, they could buff 10 things, including sustain, but if they reduce the duration of some skill by 0.1s, or reduce a radius by 6 cm, some people in the forum will only confirm that the game is dead.

    It will be interesting to see what they say. There are people who seem locked into certain habitual ways of thinking about the game, and this update is pushing against that. ZOS can obviously see the blind spot held by a lot of players. The question is whether ZOS will try to illuminate, or reverse direction.

    As they already were saying numerous times, major changes can be implemented every 2 weeks. And next week will be this 2nd after previous major changes.
