    Where do the resources for these new campaigns come from and why can they be used to provide more performance for existing ones?

    For some reasons the new campaigns have much better performance for me on PC EU even when pop locked !

    From my personal experience they are maybe one too many of them. For example I logged in yesterday at about 7 PM (which is nearly prime time) on D'Albei, and I was solo flipping resources around ring keeps owned by the other faction completely unchallenged. They came to flip them back ~20 minutes after one had been completely isolated. The other CP was slightly more animated, but the no-CP looked even more dead, with 1-2 population per faction. The population has been stretched too thin. IMO 1 CP & 1 no CP should have sufficed. Most people chose to stay on either Vivec or Sotha Sil, since those had 200+ queue. Shor also had queue, but much lower, at around 20-30.

    That definitely wasn’t my experience on PC NA, the new campaigns have been pretty packed all weekend. I’ve been in all of the CP ones on my different toons and there have been huge groups of all three factions running around.

    When is the reset on the new 7 day campaigns, Thursday morning (i.e. 7 days after they were opened) or something else? Trying to schedule mayhem activities across a few characters.

    I'd like to know that too. Wish there was an easier way of always seeing this (rahter than setting them as guest on different Alts)

    That said post U18 the Guest switch is free / instant right? Maybe I need to check them later.

    More people just needed to populate no cp and grow a pair. Now Sotha Sil is going to be a ghost town again... Great..

    I homed one character in one of them last night. Reset is just about 7 days from when it opened.

    Heads up: The new campaigns that were opened for Midyear Mayhem will be closed next Tuesday morning.

    Cheers @ZOS_GinaBruno good to know.

    A few of us would still like a noCP 7 day. When folks hit 1-2 million AP on reset it removes any fun for a full month. A weekly option would be sweet. But dead campaigns aren't cool I know that and I know some platforms Sotha gets pop locked!

    It really would. I'm a tad torn as I hate alliance switchers / boosters and they have an easier time dwelling in quiet campaigns - but right now they mess with the 30 day on Xbox EU early in the month and it can destroy interest. Switching th 30 day to 7 day would work in my opinion, but I know ZOS want consistent campaigns on all platforms and on many the 30 day Sotha is pop locked.

    Also for me, whilst Shor is entertaining you still get the zerg hoard descend now and then, at least the fact the Zerg's hate noCP keeps Sotha small scale on the whole.

    On EU PC Shor is pretty dead, and even during the event had a very short queue; it was just a tad more full than the temporary ones. Before the event Vivec an Sotha Sil had 50+ queue during prime time, Shor barely has 2 lines, and most of those people were nowhere to be seen when you entered the campaign, the map was one color, including other alliances' base keeps with nobody besieging them, so I suspect most weare in fact quietly farming TelVar in IC; and it was even worse when it was no-CP, shortly after Morrowind launch. So adding a 7 day no-CP campaign is not advisable, as empty campaigns are boring, prone to imbalances, and a drain on server resources.
