    thanks to devs, writers(!) (and producers, too...) for the great game, moving quests, the endless content and the fun events!
    only one request from my side - if you plan for another "collectors edition", please bring back the quality of Imperial and Morrowind and consider public holidays when doing release maintenance.
    merry christmas, also to the bestest community!

    Another great year! Thanks for all the hard work that goes into keeping this game going.

    Perhaps, or maybe there is so much to look forward to in 2019 that a separate letter is needed. At five years in, they may have something really big that’s been in development for quite some time.

    I agree that I was hoping to see a “look ahead” thing too. The suspense is wild! Wish there was at least a small tease. Could have picked any race and just said they are going to be awesome in the new year. Oh well, only a couple weeks until a new year.

    I'm sure we will have a new chapter released in 2019 along with a few more dlc. Looking forward to it with expectation.

    No news is good news????...lol... :)
    Actually, call me nostalgic.....But,
    I really miss the days when they actually TOLD us what they are planning, discuss new content, etc. They would do videos, ESO-Live would have Matt, Rich, (Paul in the day), there would be interviews by streamers and YouTube game sites.
    @ZOS_MattFiror , will we ever see such "Road Ahead" like we used to see??? Videos, informative articles, special ESO-Live episodes, etc?

    For those who are new, here are a couple of examples of what the "Road Ahead " used to entail in spoilers...
    Just my 2 drakes, and my opinion, but I find less and less reason to get excited about expecting new news.... :(

    All of that was also before we had a set release schedule. Now, we know there is a major update every quarter with a chapter in Q2.

    @Turelus Necromancer class? NO, HELL NO!

    No more Classes, but Skill Lines.
    No more Races, but Skins.

    That is, Necromancer skill line please!

    Your favorite race will get nerfed....

    But that's ok, because your favorite streamer will tell you what to play and you will either a)purchase a race change token to mirror what <insert favorite streamer> tells you is most OP b)grind a new toon to be the best mid-max race

    I'd be happy with either, but I'd prefer class. And regardless, it has to be treated as universally anathema as lore has it (insert justice system on use in cities). I would like to see a Briarheart skill tree, that could be interesting.

    This right here. What happened to The Road Ahead? I am really hoping to see better business practices regarding the crown store and houses I really want to buy... no behemoths I will not be able to decorate fully but with the max amount of players allowed. Of course improved item counts and player caps are my personal Holy Grail for next year, as well as my darned day/night toggle! And please, Breton DLC. ZONE DLC, not dungeons!

    Guess no Road Ahead before the end of the year. The last one was in December 2017, so I guess we don't get one in 2018. My guess is that Firor is not paying as much attention to ESO while Game 2 production is getting started. Maybe he can scrape together a few minutes in January to do one.

    I'm glad he's taking the time to eyeroll at people on Twitter and remain silent here on real issues. Looking forward to another year of silence on performance issues while the Crown Store gets full focus.

    That is just sad
