The Reason I Support Sload

LoveForElderScrolls
The reason I support sload is those perfect players who mastered everything little thing in this game and use all overpowered skills in order to win all the time and are forcing other players to do the same because of the huge gap between them and other players. Sload set is an easy way to keep up with those perfect players. Maybe if those god-like players didn't spend so much time and energy to win every time sload wouldn't exist. Never used sload because the set description doesn't attract me but I support it. Don't complain if more sets like this appear in the future. Sorry if this post makes you angry I dislike sload too but I explained the reason for supporting it.

    That fine and dandy until those good players use Sloads too because they arent afraid of using BIS proc sets in PVP.

    Which is effectively what happened.

    And which is one reason ZOS eventually nerfed Sloads. So I'm not sure why we needed this.

    I can only imagine OP is just trying to be funny and probably has issues with Sloads still.

    After all, who would go to such lengths to actually say they take issue with players who actually learn to play the game and develop skill at playing PvP in ESO? Rhetorical of course.

    Some players have internet issues or their pc is slow. Some players don't have time to learn every little thing. Does it make you feel good to kill those players even with skill? Not saying skill and learning is bad but many players are overdoing it. That's why even a lot of people are asking for a sload nerf it doesn't happen.

    yes, someone who takes the time to learn and play the game they love SHOULD be on the same level as some one who puts no effort into learning eso, i completely agree.

    I’m pretty sure there’s some oceanic players who just don’t know Sloads has been nerfed and continue to use it. Occasionally, late night I’ll be hit with it and laugh, like “I’ve been SLOADED!” Maybe ZOS hasn’t localized the patch notes or something.

    As for the OP, there are ways to get better. Depending on a set to carry you would only make it worse for you when leet players adopt those same sets.

    The best player I know wouldn’t run Sloads but he crafted it and would try it out against us (his pals in duels). Reckt people. Same guy got bored and rolled a spam sniping NB and it was INSANE. He was almost one shorting people. He came up with a heavy attack Destro/Restro MagDk build that WAS one shoting people just for laughs lol.

    These broken builds in the hands of really good players are why they get nerfed. Not because unskilled players cry for nerfs lol.

    I really cannot take the OP seriously which means I cannot take this reply seriously. It is really odd to bash players who have taken the time to develop skill in such a manner. it seems rather odd to praise them because they worked hard to become good players then bash them for the same reason.

    even though i made a joke out of it, i do think their should be something in place to help bring less experienced players up to par, i think something like a mentor system would be better though. having something as strong as sloads with so few counters is just bad for the game.

    Heres the Script across all games I have ever played in 20+ years.

    1. Someone skilled finds a build/ gear that allows them to dominate 1v1
    2. That person then shares their build in a group so that they can dominate in XvX
    3. There is a golden age in which the group dominates PvP or PvE
    4. The build becomes disseminated through bragging rights/ rage threads / observation
    5. Build becomes meta
    6. Community complains
    7. Nerfs ensue
    8. PvEs vs PvPers blame game commences.

    Moral of the story - PvP was the cause in a PvP environment. PvE was the cause in a PvE environment.

    Or ZOS could lower the skill ceiling. A lot. And remove ping-dependant mechanics, like cancelling and positioning response.

    Also fix some internal core issues that experienced players have learned to "abuse" (not exploit btw), to get far ahead of others.

    Those are really the only issues. It would suck, since it took me forever to learn how to be good, but i'd embrace it eventually. It's always better for a game to offer a fair and level playing field for all players.

    WITHOUT needing sets like Sload or Anguish, or anything of that sort of ridiculous bs. Or illogical rebalancing and nerfs that hurt both PvP and PVE and make the game into a huge mess.

    Yeah a lot of the good and experienced players will QQ, and say it's bad. But guess what, idfc about you. I care about the other 90% of players. And I'll gladly have a healthier, friendlier and more satisfied community.

    Yep. Another set rendered completely useless. Mostly due to forum crying.

    In its original state, it wasn’t even very good in 1 v 1 duels.

    The rock n tree dancers (LOS ulti dumpers) didn’t like it because it was a counter to their whacked out builds.

    Sloads was really strong in duels combined with bleeds and major defile and it still is. No one can dodge the projectile in melee range. And the pressure from it is huge.

    Telegraphed? Gl trying to actively dodge it, especially melee range.

    Significant dmg reduction? It got 1 tick removed?

    I dont see how this post would make anyone angry. The whole anti sload movement has always had the main point that it is a set that allows players to have a sense of accomplishment without doing much.

    You seem to completely agree on the point that some people use certain sets to make up for their lack of skill.

    If you think the floor needs to be raised so bad players don't feel so bad, that's an opinion you're allowed to have.

    It's not something I agree with, but I understand people want an easy way of playing. It is just a video game after all.

    I'd 100% rather have dots from skills be strong rather than a set doing the same thing but stronger.

    Atleast people are forced to use a skill for it now.

    But in a meta where heavy has dominated and is only going to dominate more i think bleeds are needed.

    Sloads is like a free lunch in a capitalist economy and that is exactly why this game is declining at such a rapid pace. Zos is choosing to cater to newer players through class homogenization and catch up/ dumb down mechanics rather than taking care of its more mature players. In a purely economical sense, it means a surge of money up front but longevity/ stability is compromised. This is why they choose to keep releasing dlc's rather than fix core issues that have been broken for years.

    They have been. Sadly, the player base is really following along with it as of late.
