    I almost feel bad as DC for us winning this campaign considering we owe a big chunk of that 10k lead to the AD offpeak teams that switched to DC this cycle. But I'll enjoy the extra gold and the extra stats from the scrolls we kept for once.

    I wouldn’t mind, if the 3 bar dc raids stopped gate camping 1 bar ep...I’m sure it goes something like ep did it first so we deserve it.. Practically killed pvp in off hours gj

    I even started playing bdo 🤦‍♂️

    Killed alliance PvP. AD is decimated since players jumped to winning factions.

    Its a shame that ESO PvP became so water downed and easily manipulated.

    Sounds like Faction Lock is doing its job then. People were warned that this would happen but noooo, casuals just had to whine about the people hopping factions to even out the pops.

    None of my business tho... *sip*

    Just now the faction hop happens at the end of the campaign. But it is what it is factions rise and fall faction lock or no faction lock.

    Next DLC the option will be there for either in a 30 day campaign, just have to see how that works out.

    Except that the new campaign is a losing proposition, Zeni deliberately waited several cycles to make the change despite all the negative feedback they received and nothing will change because people are too entrenched and invested in their main campaigns to bite the bullet and make the move, and also because no one wants to be the first group to move.

    Hopefully I'm wrong, and the new campaign ends up being the new hotness.

    Invictus has been dead for a while. Many Invictus members are now in Vanguard, which runs more casually and sporadically.

    A lot of veterans are still around, Maia, but we've also lost many. If you are happy where you are at, don't come back. You won't recognize the game.

    Yeah I've talked with a few folks and it sounds like a lot are gone. Maybe with the 2020 performance updates pvp will make a comeback?

    I'm just gonna casually go through these like 8 DLCs and expansions I've missed in the meantime.

    If you want an invite to VG to say hi to some of the remaining Invictus folks, shoot me or Akinos a message. I'm hopeful but not optimistic about the performance fixes. After all, removing the deer and nerfing healing springs was SO effective.

    They removed deer? The next step will be to make another cp enabled server to spread the pop out to help performance, oh, wait......

    Akinos! Miss that guy. Looks like he removed me from his friends list (not that I blame him, haha)

    I'll see if anyone is on today. Home from work sick.

    Probably the worst campaign I've seen in a long time. Wasn't competitive in the slightest. DC absolutely ruined Cyrodiil PvP, and they're back at it again in this new campaign that just started on the first day.

    Eh, well. It's not DC-- or any of the factions, really. It's a certain handful of guilds that hopped from EP to AD and now from AD to DC that's absolutely ruining Cyrodiil and driving people away from it. I know people quitting the game over it. I'd imagine they think faction stacking, PvDooring and Nightcapping is amazing and that they're doing a great job, but they get absolutely no respect from anyone for it. They're hated.

    Noone, regardless of alliance, wants to come into Cyrodiil an hour or two before primetime and see damn near the entire map painted one color, with one faction having all of the scrolls and Emp. It's pointless, as you can't make any significant gains even when your factions are populated during primetime, only to have everything undone again a few hours later by DC.

    Noone wants to try and deal with that, even if you don't care about the map score. It's not fun having both non-Emp faction gates being camped and farmed.

    Can't wait for no faction lock. It'll help with this, maybe.

    It won't. Instead of painting the map one color during off hours, they will be selling emp achievement.

    We also got a significant number of people that moved from non CP to CP, a lot of them DC. Its a combination of the groups that moved from AD and the groups that moved from non CP that are seemingly promoting the lets make the map all blue mentality.

    There are a couple of things going on that are not working for people. Being gated all the time, never having scrolls, DC traveling everywhere with no less than 40 people (even against 1 bar factions), throwing scrolls in the water instead of marching them back to where they want them, the same DC dude becoming EMP 85kabillion times a week, the hammer in general right now. Lately both EP and AD have had much lower populations then DC almost the entire day, and defending against the borg is less fun the more it goes on.

    I get it, I'm not saying DC should stop playing or they aren't entitled to have fun too, but if these sort of things keep happening, they will be playing by themselves. I'm seeing far to many people just logging off or quitting because continuing to try is an actual waste of time.

    This. So much this. It's killing Cyrodiil and DC seems absolutely ecstatic about this fact. They were teabagging the one-bar factions after painting the map blue if you managed to die to their 40-man zerg running around.

    AD has been the underdog faction for years. We die hard AD loyalists are used to it. We had some good campaign wins earlier this year (2019) when AD guilds had better all round time coverage, even at night. I believe in sticking with my faction (just like RL sports team), win or lose, and pushing to rebuild, mentor new players to our faction and encouraging our stronger, regular guilds to "not jump ship" just to be on the winning side, but, stay and grow the faction. Same should be true for other factions, IMO. I'm def not a fan of the faction jumping back and forth during match ( campaign) to "even things out." Make a commitment and stick to it.

    This can happen EP did it to 2 campaigns a few years back just strangled the life out of them with constant gate camping until both AD and DC just stopped logging in. Most of the players from back then have moved on now and the few who remain have wisdom enough to know not to completely destroy opposing factions moral though some newer players have yet to learn this lesson.

    Honestly, many who are left are just waiting for a new MMO with a decent pvp focus.
