Are you happy with the new faction locks?

I hate the new locks as it prevents me playing ALTs on the main 30 day CP campaign who are already assigned to different factions which I cannot change. I play PvP on 8 different toons across the 3 factions. It will prevent a lot of my PvP fun.
What do you guys think ?

    It's so off putting, it spoils all the excitement there could be with the new class, new area etc!

    And it's so non-sensical. Players who want to play for a faction score can do that also without locks, and it blocks everyone else from playing as we would like, and with whom we would like.

    I don't like faction locks, but I think it's a good compromise to appease the vocal minority and drive some of the Vivec overcrowding to the 7-day campaign.

    I'm not opposed to faction lock as such, if it helps to prevent spies and traitors. But, it seems to me there's something missing. More specifically, at least one more campaign.
    There's only one thirty-day campaign, yes, I can understand that, it is a long-term investment and you don't want to spread the players thin. But there's also only one seven-day campaign, even though there should be two, because we have three factions. Am i missing a point here, or did they just exclude one third of my characters from participating in Cyrodiil?

    Honestly, dont care. I am just getting ready to read the soon to be classic, but new threads about how <faction> won the map while I was a sleep, remove faction lock so I can join the winning team / lock Cyrodill when I sleep noaw threads.

    There is no No-CP campaign without faction lock. Not even a 7-day one.

    I don't care about CP-enabled PvP. My main PvP char will remain in Sotha (whatever it's called now); casual PvP in other alliances is not possible any more.

    Until that is fixed, I am not happy.

    (Also, the alliance lock feature is kinda useless anyway, but whatever.)

    Imo, Faction locks are a good improvement but you have to be able to play with ALL of your characters in one faction during 30 days or at the very least give us the opportunity to change faction for every character a single time after the patch. I am all about Cyrodiil and i have 10 chars (each class stam/mag) divided equally to factions. And i love to play with all of them during the same campaign. I am a single player, i dont have any friends or guilds. But even then, now 70 % of my previously created characters are useless. And i dont care about factions, it is a really very hard situation for people that have friends in each faction or care about them if there will be no compensation in terms of allowance to choose faction again after the patch.

    **Sarcasm** Loved it!! **Sarcasm**
    I raid on EP as that is the seemingly best compramise between having a mega zerg to fight (DC) and some other raid guilds to fight on (AD). I small scale on AD as the fights are better. I know have to choose between which friends I want to play with.
    I pvp for the fights I don't care about campaigns and would be happy to take 90% even 100% AP penilty on the other faction as long as it allows me to play the other faction. Today I ended up fighting along side my AD main friends agasint DC so well done I guess for making me finds new ways to play.

    Not a huge fan, I like swapping to another faction to focus rude people with their own private shadow of death in the absence of ffa ruleset as all pvp should be, imo.
    Now I will have less options when messing with padders and such as well.

    Although I do like the idea beyond it ruining my ability to stomp people on my own side who deserve it.

    The only thing I don't like is missing out on being able to swap to a different faction to cash in on double AP buffs whenever they show up. Outside of that I don't mind.

    As a pve carebear no I don’t like it. I only go in for the Golden or for my guild. Next achievement like Empieror comes around I most likely will have to use a ton of gold (don’t have a lot of AP) to change to campaigns so I’ll be on the faction the guild needs. If I put my AD in Shor Bahlokdaan and the guild needs blues for an event then I’ll be sol. Also I can’t check the map before choosing so for my pve activities in Cyrodiil I’m gimped.

    I’m happy for you all though. Everything is coming up roses for you pvpers. Got your pvp dev in charge of combat and lore, the world is yours.

    I'm happy about it personally because now it's a lot harder to troll siege and scrolls and use alts to flip entire maps, but that wasn't all free-for-all factions were about, so I understand why many players are unhappy with this change, and I don't think they're wrong to be.
    AD is the best looking faction. Sorry, I don't make the rules.

    Literally the worst change in the game. It was removed for a reason. My guild has swapped alliances a couple times over the years (omg transfactiinals) and we have acquired friends from dc and ad. We recently came back to ad to finish a few characters to 5 stars. So we will be here for probably the year. Now we have to ask our dc friends to make a commitment to us and only main ad in vivec? Sorry but on ps4 NA nobody wants to play on Shor, Its usually dominated by one alliance and often much more dead than vicec

    This isnt going to help anyone’s alliance win, this isn’t going to prevent spies, THIS ISNT GOING TO CHANGE ANYTHING. Why didn’t you make a campaign of each??? A 30day cp with alliance lock and one without etc? Then you could actually see who cares @ZOS_GinaBruno

    You already know my answer, and that I quit PvP this patch. Good riddance. Though it only really means I will log in far less. It's already hard for me now to bother downloading a 6GB patch for a DLC, I mean "chapter," I won't even be buying.

    It's short-sighted and bad thought change. Appealing only to the fanatics of this or that faction.
