Exploit at small houses with loading doors

So,
Around 10 EP players with Scroll hide inside this house (Thalara's Winery), waiting for reinforcements, and since the house is undestroyable and has a loading door attached to it, it was impossible to get inside and fight properly. They stayed on this for several minutes.
I don't think its fair, since the house is fairly small inside, but once the EP gets out, has alot of free space to spread.
So,
I reported as much of their @ i could see, for exploit.


Make house destroyable or remove the door.

    Not really an exploit, but is kind of a cheesy move and edge case ZOS might want to consider in future.

    Just spam up on shields and buffs and zerg inside? If that doesn't work at least you'll create an awesome murder scene.

    This same type of thing happened during the last Midyear Mayhem. People camped inside buildings where you had to turn in the quests for towns. They see your character load inside before you exit the load screen so most of the time it's a free lol for them. It wasn't deemed an exploit then so I highly doubt it will be now. Just avoid them & don't enter to be farmed. It's totally fair too because they're utilizing in-game mechanics > find a building, bunker down, & wait for reinforcements to arrive so they can defeat enemy forces.

    Also, afterthought, why didn't your group just call for more from zone to just stealth up outside somewhere until their reinforcements arrived or they left the building & then bomb em all while they were a tight group exiting with ultimates & prox detonation or something? See what I did there... It's called counter play & options other than calling for a Nerf or saying unfair or exploit.

    Its a troll, not an exploit. On a small pop campaign it can be a problem without enough people to overwhelm them - but they can't stay in there forever - the scroll will reset over time or they will get bored of so few APs coming in and move on.

    You can put any vehicle you want on the racetrack that is ESO, just don't blame anybody but yourself if your VW bus gets passed by a Ferrari.

    Or instead of entering the house just wait for them to come out or scroll reset? Problem solved.

    It doesn't really work, because it's a separate portion of the map your character has to load in.

    This has been in game since launch. Players use to do this far more often but it has slowed down to pretty much no one doing it today. Back when there were still doors on resource towers, players would sit on the bottom floor and would kill anyone that would enter. Unless you and a group of skilled players all hit immovable pots and in some cases dropped a negate on the door prior to entering, you would die before even taking a step.

    This is not an exploit and you can just simply wait them out.

    Just so you know, they weren't waiting for reinforcements.

    They were waiting for people to open the door and chase them into a terribly (dis)advantageous environment.

    It does work. It just takes an equally effective and organized group to be successful as the clip above demonstrates. You buff up, apply hots/shields and go in as a group.

    On a properly configured PC client, there is barely any delay. Unfortunately, the average PC ESO player seems to cripple their clients with too many addons.

    I think farms like that are weak, but they're not exploitative and can be defeated.

    Fights like this should actually be encouraged. Maybe not to this degree, but the fact that in an elder scrolls game all groups ever do is grab the scroll and then cap it is boring.

    Why not make scroll more like artifacts instead of sitting in keeps and temples collecting cobwebs?

    Stand outside and sing camp fire songs until the scroll resets then. At least everyone on the map will be heading to that location to fight.

    Also send a small group out to take some keeps whilst their forces are reading the scroll in the house.

    I like the bottomless pit in the Mountain in EP land, get chased by an EP blob. jump in and die, but many will follow you to get the scroll, lotsa laffs when they die.

    The scroll resets but hey its a game isn't it?

    I'm not sure which is worse, sitting there all bored waiting for someone to show up, or everyone shows up and lag goes mad and fps drops to 3fps :D
