    Platform? Server?

    If PC, system specs? Addons used?

    Internet connection including whether wired or wireless?

    I have no problems on the PC EU server.

    I noticed the memory leak was back and is much more noticeable if you are switching between characters on a regular basis. I've had my game crash out a few times because of that.
    Far too many characters to list any more.

    I crashed 3 times in 15 minutes Monday night, did a repair and that seemed to fix it. Then last night I crashed twice in about 5 minutes. I've had random crashes before but not right after updates. I'm on PC NA.

    I've tried to do crafting writs 3-4 times today and I just get booted every time.

    I think I'm done with this game. Or at least I need a break.

    An old but often good place to start is by deleting your UserSettings file.

    That has in the past immediately sorted any sudden oncome of crashes for me.

    Also just a thought but if this started immediately after a patch, have you tried a repair?

    Maybe something didn't patch properly? :)

    can you just delete it and it auto reproduces it? i assume it resets it then to factory settings?

    Though it's been crashing before the last 24-48 hours it's gotten more frequent for me. It seems to be specific to Vvardenfell, for me anyway. I wasn't there for even five minutes today and it crashed.

    I suggest you try a repair of the game client then, it sounds like the patch didn't install properly. Even if that's already been tried, I'd try it again and if that doesn't work then a full reinstall would be the next move.

    It's also worth making sure that you more than meet the system requirements, updates will often catch out a borderline system or one that doesn't have quite enough free space on the hard drive.

    On the other hand, different considerations may apply if your world location is likely to be affected by either the present situation in Texas or else the broken undersea cable causing issues for Australian players.

    Friend had this problem, but the launcher gives an error when he game tries to re-install.

    They basicly cant reinstall the game at this point. Never seen issues like this as bad as this patch.

    Your friend needs to make sure the game is completely removed before the attempt is made to reinstall it and that the latest launcher is downloaded. Or is he playing through Steam in which case it would be worth checking with Steam to see if there's a problem with their version?

    They were with steam, but they tried to download the individual client. No change.

    Definately on ZOS's end, or steams end. Eitherway? Inexcuseable.

    I've been having this too; never suffered from unreasonably frequent crashes before but I've just had my second in less than half hour. It's been averaging about one every hour I'd say.

    I'm on PS4 EU, PSN Lillybit still :smile:

    @Nemesis7884, yes next time you log on it rebuilds, you have to re-accept the ToC's etc but honestly the extra work is worth it if it cures the issue......

    I'm very boring and run the game as it came settings wise, so I'm not a 100% sure but I would imagine if you have made custom settings they would be reset also.......

    Maybe somebody can confirm that? :)

    Also as Tandor said a repair or two may also be worth a try.

    I have no problems on the PC EU server.

    Whilst I am sure that these are valid issues, I can't help thinking that you're missing the point on some of the complaints overall.

    Some people are bringing complaints to this forum as they have gone from a perfectly playable system one day, to complete chaos the next day. With no intentional change to their local environment, it is entirely normal (and rational) to assume that the problem is not a local one.

    There have been enough posts in the past 24 hours from various people around the world, that enables a blanket conclusion that the problem does not relate to local system specs. The OP clearly states that 'prior to the last update, they never had any crashes'.

    More specifically:
    Broken cable
    I got suspenders for saying "Testicular Mass" instead of "Balls". like, rilly.

    None of that alters the fact that without mentioning even the platform or server their post serves no purpose as it is meaningless being devoid of any context. By adding additional information as suggested it is then possible to look for common denominators as clearly these issues are only affecting some players whereas a wholly broken update would affect everyone.
