Most Serious Issue with the Game?

    You can't say besides lag. Lag is the ONLY problem worth fixing atm. Anything else is just piddly little things that don't matter because you're lagging too much.

    Lag isn't an issue for me, whether on the PC EU or PC NA server. The only issue I have with the game itself is the trading system which needs a lot of revamping, whilst outside the game this forum has gone downhill a lot in recent months.

    Their inability to separate nerfing for PvP from PvE. That's what I see is one the biggest issue(s) of the game. I can't even see how all the nerfing and balance have benefited PvP. PvP has been so jacked up for such a long time. Does it even matter what balance is supposedly in place when you're crashing, stuttering and game convulsing/lagging continuously. On the other end of the spectrum in PvE land, all the nerfing balance have weaken classes and toons left and right. Sure, there have been buffs as well, but don't dent the difference of all the nerfing throughout the past years.

    Hey.. I don't want to be all negative Nancy. The game is still incredible is its own rights with such expansiveness and awe-inspiring, picturesque sceneries and graphic. For anyone brand new and just experiencing the game, they will be mesmerized; loads of fun, countless hours of entertainment with combat and exploration and many other things to do beside killing things. Kudos for Zen and Bethesda, otherwise..

    Too many utterly horrible people in Cyrodiil making PvP unappealing. My flip answer is usually something about separate PvE and PvP servers but honestly if there weren't so many PvPers who are just terrible humans I would *love* PvP.

    Hybrid builds.

    I know we have pelenials aptisomething. But it just scales of highest stat. It doesn't take max recource and crit in account. So as a hybrid your always gimped (unless you just want uber healing as a stamina character)

    I wish the set would do not only max spell/weapon damage, but also takes the corresponding recourse and crit in account and also uses that resource. So magicka users can also use some weapins instead of always that boring staff

    My biggest problem lies with CP. I don't think it should be removed altogether, I think it ads a cool aspect as you level up and brings some more diversity to certain areas of the game. However, we barely need to even worry about splitting CP or what goes where anymore since we have so many points we can just get whatever we want. I think CP should be capped at around 300-500 and each CP requires the same xp to gain, not this the higher you go the harder it gets nonsense. Each CP, in my opinion, should be around 40-60k xp give or take. At the current rate, not even mentioning all the balance issues and killing off older content, it takes months if not a year or more for new players to even be considered for late game content unless they come in knowing what they want to do and grind hard.

    I think lowering the CP cap and leaving it there would not only stop this expanding gap in content difficulty, but would also encourage more players to stick with the game. Personally I play MMOs to play with people and do group content, whether it be PvP or PvE. If it's going to take me months to get to end game level, I typically don't stick with the game very long. End game should be a gear grind, not a level grind.

    My issue. The lack of diversity in endgame builds. I think this is indirectly caused by how stacking dps allows to ignore most mechanics.

    The lack of the devs in listening to the Mag warden's cries to everything from, clunky combat, double barring bear, nerfing bear damage, double clicking ability just to get in creased damage, too many buffs, low dps, arctic blast issues etc. I feel this is a major issue to me and from what I read others but there's just not enough of us to be heard obviously.

    Second would have to be Cyrodiil performance. Even on PC it can get nasty out there.

  • validifyedneb18_ESO
    Balance and as a part of this the limited build diversity caused by the stamina/magicka divide.

    Second biggest issue is ZOS dont know how to make fun and engaging content, only grinds. Their solution to get people back into the game is to make a mount and variations that require over a years worth of events to farm out in totality.

    Well, i cant get it to work with my magNB. I can on, for example, my stamward which has then insane heals. And for stamDK maybe if you use magicka skills. It might depend on the class.

    Ill see if i can do it on a stamblade and use, for example, the magicka execute instead of stamina. It has more range.

    Fleeing is a perfectly valid tactic if you wander into a tough situation. Find or craft better
    gear, use skill points, or level up a bit more, then come back to fight another day.

    Huge gaps in difficulty between content. Lower difficulty level content doesn't prepare players to more difficult ones.

    Trying to solve these gaps brings also an another problem: the game doesn't teach and prepare players. Tutorials do teach basics, but nothing makes sure you as a player remember them after leaving tutorial zone.
    Dungeons scale pretty well in difficulty I think from normal fungal 1 up to normal dlc back to vet fungal 1 and up.

    Agree with the game don't teaching is an problem, now its true that say wow also don't teach rotations but ESO is in a bit special setting in that it has lots of people coming from single player games and its require plenty of player skill.
    To many choices can make it hard for people.
    Grinding just make you go in circles.
    Asking ZoS for nerfs is as stupid as asking for close air support from the death star.

    Power Creep.

    The fact that ZOS seems compelled to add stronger and stronger gear every DLC, so that people have to buy the latest DLC to have best in slot. Add increasing champion points every patch, and you have a major power creep issue that ZOS seems to be ignoring.

    You have probably heard of powercreep, but why should you care?
    Because there is a price. A high one. You pay for power creep (caused by ZOS adding more and more powerful gear and increasing champion points) by having your characters skills, passives (and next patch) racial passives nerfed again and again. Your numbers get bigger but your character actually gets weaker. But worst of all, your class abilities lose utility and get less diverse.

    Here's why they do it:
    ZOS seems to want best in slot gear to either come from the latest DLC/Chapter, or be behind some sort of grindwall.
    The only way to ensure that is to either nerf existing gear (like they did with Mechanical Accuity) or put tons more damage on new gear (like they did with relequen, siroria, spell strat).

    Here's what we pay for it
    The problem with this is that now the top tier DPS has tons more damage and can blaze through content. Then top guilds post videos of their members soloing trial bosses or burning things down in 5 seconds. ZOS gets afraid people will lose interest so they go around looking around for things to nerf to "balance" the game. The first things on the chopping block seem to be those juicy class skills. Every patch, iconic class skills get their utility or damage robbed to "pay" for the huge amounts of damage gained by new gear and the CP system. Next patch, our racials will all get gutted. Not in the name of balance, but so that ZOS can sell that power back to you with grind and DLC.

    Why this is bad for the game in the long run
    This is the most annoying thing in the game right now. It sucks to have the classes continue to be homogenized and class and racial choices be less meaningful patch after patch. In a few more years, most of your power is going to come from grinding the latest gear and champion points. At this rate, the classes and races will just differ by their particle effects and skins.

    • Return Stam builds to the power we held in One Tamriel. Long Live Stamina builds!
    • Put Magplar and MagDK into their place. Magpsorc is a hopeless case.
    • Is there any chance that we could get an Ebonheart Pact nerf? #CullingTheHerds .
