    After crashing and burning on the first day of the Midyear Mayhem and playing it safe and going low pop after the data recovery for the rest of the event, I have finally ventured back to my home campaign Kaalgrontiid. During the last 2 days in Cyrodiil (about 3 hours each) I have experienced horrendous lag and skills not firing at all, especially jabs on my stamplar - I hit the button and she just stands there doing nothing like an idiot - but I can say I have not been disconnected, bluescreened, or crashed AT ALL. People are complaining a lot but I am finally feeling like maybe things are going to get better. Not to say everything is good but at least my expectations have been lowered after the crash. Please don’t disappoint me. I think the latest fix might have helped. It’s only 2 days but I am hopeful for the first time in a long time.

    I have been having 0 problems with the game after the Update. In fact on my Potato PC things look so much better and run so much better, no graphical issues whatsoever, no slowdown as before. However I keep getting these Error Messages when I manually quit the game.

    Well I am not sure if there is any improvement. Play pvp and the campaigns are a bit empty because everyone crashes out every 5 to 15 minutes.

    I am also not sure if there is any improvement.

    Loading screen times (zone-to-zone, entering buildings) seem all over the place. Sometimes, it is really short, other times it takes 10s of seconds.

    Logging into the game and character load feel about the same to me.

    No crashes, though.

    I am a pc gamer here, although this is one game that I play that I use a controller with. The UI *fix* for the scaling created a huge problem for me because I run at a high resolution and never had problems with the UI before. I deactivated Add-ons and everything, but the scaling or magnification that the put on a gamepad user is a major problem. In fact, it becomes an accessibility issue for me because all of the text is too large on my 28 inch 4k monitor. Some people may need large print, I am the opposite of that…it’s still a matter of accessibility and the patch created that accessibility issue for me. I still love ESO, but I cannot play it with a keyboard and mouse. It really seems like those us that use controllers are being penalized even though the game supports controllers. I was not having any UI issues prior to patch, but now the game is rendered intolerable. Currently, I am exploring other options trying to find a way to get my screen to a normal resolution rather than something that feels like the old days of 800x600 *shudders* I would really rather have my 3840x2160 resolution. It is much easier on my eyes.

    I realize that @ZOS_GinaBruno said that it was an intentional change and because of the complaints they are considering adding it back later, but we need a more definitive answer and timeline for the realignment or change back. I just renewed my subscription last month and I cannot justify continuing to pay for a game that I cannot play because the screen-sizing/scaling problem that their patch has created for me renders the game unplayable.

    I did not see an improvement in load times or any positive change at all with this patch unfortunately. I had high hopes for the patch, but got pushed down and stomped into the mud instead.

    The upcoming updates look fine, but if the UI scaling on gamepad isn't addressed properly, it still is not worth continuing. I have not found a good workaround yet.

    launcher stuck in updating.

    it downloaded the update fine and i could login and play.
    When i logged back in later it wanted to update the launcher and then got stuck on updating.

    i have the launcher and game .exe added in firewall and antivirus exclusions, but it does not help.
    i uninstalled the game an tried again but still stuck at launcher update.

    i downloaded the launcher again, but it shows the brown background for Elsweyr.
    on the launcher it is trying to update it is showing the new blue launcher.
    why can't the new launcher download correct form the website?

    i could play without using the launcher, but as soon as i interact with anything i lose all control.
    the UI disappear and nothing works.
    Going back to PS4 untill the pc works again.

    XBOX NA - come on ZOS the game is unplayable in Cyrodiil. Skills don't go off - you have to press the button at least three times before the skill works. Break free is not working - again have to press buttons a few times before you can break free. I have never seen the game this bad!!!!

    The Harrowstone update has improved things for me in Cyrodiil and fortunately I have not had an increase in crashes or disconnects like the PC players have experienced. Skills still sometimes do not fire and sometimes I cannot bar swap, but it it is not nearly as frequent as before. I still get stuck in combat sometimes.

    Others however are still having issues so it may be due to the different variables of physical disc (which I have) versus digital copy, or PS4 Pro (which I have) versus PS4 Slim.

    Overall things do seem to be doing a little better for me. Still crashing but only once per day. Long loading screens are still present as well but not as many. Lag does seem to be a little better. The one change I don’t like is how it is harder to dismount hitting the block button. Still possible but harder to perform.

    PvE is mostly fine. Only sometimes skills will not trigger, Framerates seem to be on as well.
    PvP framerates are mostly ok, except in big keep battles. But skills will not trigger half the time and i often have to CC break multiple times in a row.

    Also not sure why some of my friends have a 67GB file and i still have an 80GB file?

    People are actually accusing the other factions of cheating now. Like certain skills used by players will cause the other factions to get the skill lag.

    I don’t know if this is true, but even when taking resources by myself the NPCs can give you awful skill lag. So maybe it’s certain cc skills, we already know there is a problem with break free (especially if you’re a stamina toon like me).

    Also, why are the NPCs with swords and shields and names like “Honor Guard” able to use spells on me and set me on fire? They are OP.

    Did you revert some stuff from update 25? Yesterday, I noticed the skill delay was gone but terrible ping spikes were back. Could also be because of EU being in quarantine of course.

    Usually right after a patch game is not in a best shape. Too much stress on servers, to many players coming at the same time to do daily activities after a break. But today right after a patch game is much better then previously. A lot of players in Alinor and still no lag due to this quantity.
