Faction Lock Entire Account

Make the faction lock for the entire account. My 2 AD and 2 DC want to play in Kaal with my 8 EP toons. They feel left out. :smiley: That's where the action is. That's where my 2 PVP guilds are located.

I didn't want to create those toons, but before One Tamriel, that was one way to do the other story lines without having to wait for Cadwell's Silver and Gold quests.

    Agreed, as of now I have 6/9 toons that option for PvP is to... PvDoor in a dead campaign.

    Yes, please. I have dumped 100's of hours into alternative faction toons for PvPe, and now they are just worthless. I feel cheated.

    People have multiple accounts with a free to play game so it won’t make too much of a difference. ZOS should unlock all the campaign as before and make a NEW 14-day faction locked campaign with same rewards as 30-day. That way people that want faction locks can play on this new “Loyalty” campaign. This is what people were asking for before they went and locked the main ones.

    They should allow one time per character faction change, but you need any race/any alliance if those characters are going to a non native faction ( ie altmer going to EP)

    Or just make the 7 day into a 30 day so flippers can have their 30 trans crystals rewards

    Leave the current locked campaigns as they are.

    Dead thread but this is the best solution to faction lock i've seen tbh, spits in the face of people who made mirror toons of a class to play another faction but hey so did locking the factions :)

    It is a non issue. This is an old thread. Players can choose between a 30 day locked or 30 day unlocked campaign now.

    You failed to even read any and all of the post, the solution zos implemented by adding a 30 day locked campaign was a failure! It is NOT populated at all the issue is I and majority of others want to play on ALL of their toons In any and ALL campaigns without being locked to a specific alliance. I have had to make mirror copies of toons just so I can play a specific build in a populated campaign.

    I came to this forum section to state this exact same point. I have a MagWarden that I made to play with EP friends though I prefer DC. Now all those EP friends quit and I don’t wanna play on EP solo so my Warden is just holding gear and collecting dust. I can’t imagine it would be that much harder to code in the ability to choose one alliance in the beginning of choosing a campaign and then having ALL Characters, regardless of whether they are in that faction or not, be able to pvp on the faction. We asked for alliance change tokens which would have given ZOS an opportunity to make money yet they choose to ignore an ongoing request from the player base. I don’t want to level more toons i just wanna play the ones I have please! @ZOS_GinaBruno you have the power, I believe in you!

    For obvious reasons I am assuming you are referring to this thread. As such it seems you are the one who failed to read any and all of the posts as there is not a single post after the new 30 day unlocked campaign started that mentions how populated it is. None mention how well it worked or not until your post.

    Being there have not been many posts in this thread to begin with I figure that would have been easy to get right. Better luck next time.

    Will never happen as then people don't have reason to buy Riding Lessons, Skyshards, and Skill Lines.

    It's not dumb luck. They limit you and then add all these expensive shortcuts to get a new character up to where your pre-existing one is.

    If it doesn't fuel the crown store, the change won't be made.
    We may be down but we will never be out.

    Your account would be the source of your faction under a change like this. You wouldn't have X DC characters, Y AD, and Z EP, you'd just have X+Y+Z characters with no faction assigned to them at creation. Instead, you would have some way to choose a faction when you went into a campaign and all your characters would become locked to that faction and playable on that campaign.

    Hopefully that clarifies. I'm not OP, but this is what I took the idea as.
