    Ähm... Sorry guys...

    Could anyone tell me, what to do, if guards want to catch me?
    I keep running, but it feels wrong...

    Serious answer, jump in deep water so you are swimming. Guards won't swim, in my experience. Also, line of sight is a thing (usually). If you can break line of sight you may be able to hide again.
    Taking stealth away from the Bosmer is like taking magic away from the Altmer, making Nords allergic to mead, or making Orcs pretty.

    Mine was also serious. Since ZOS nerfed the root breaking component of Rapid Maneuvers, roll dodge is your only way to get away. They also nerfed Swift and speed potions, so you are in attack range longer.

    Why they are so determined to push people away from Justice play is beyond me.

    Commented, but how do you upvote now? Maybe it's my browser but I don't see a way to do it. edit: worked it out.

    It'll be obvious which one is me.

    2nd edit: This is no longer an open letter but a megathread.

    And when you fix this.
    I highly recommend giving us the catmans crit passive.
    Thank you :)

    Also the fall damg passive is a little silly imho.
    Perhaps something with a little more gusto?

    It's not silly in PVP, probably one of that rare cases when "free" racial passive has direct combat effect.

    No, it is the same points being pushed around in a circle for 40 pages.
    I am Rock, Rock needs buffing to be viable. Paper is OP and needs nerfing and Scissors should just shut up whining and L2Play.

    @alanmatillab16_ESO Because all of them are valid and we have yet to hear a single valid counter argument in any of the charges.

    Sticking your fingers in your ears and chanting "I won't hear you until you agree with me" doesn't count. So many are claiming their class was destroyed, their playstyle destroyed and such like just because they have lost that passive. If that passive was the only factor that decided whether or not a class existed then there would be no other races being thieves would there? yet clearly there are therefore it comes down to the player to make a particular race successful at being sneaky.
