    Now if the crashing issue is taken care of things will be great, or better at least. We attempted to run groups the past two evenings but stopped after an hour or so both times because it's just too frustrating crashing as much as 5 times in that period.

    So the current suspicion is that the majority of ravenwatch's main guilds moved to gray host which is why ep is currently uncontested. Though I can't speak for all of DC(yet) I can confirm that this the case with a number of well known guilds from non cp. I can also confirm that ep is doing nothing different from the last campaign that can be the direct cause for this. Could someone like @Bashur please confirm how things are going with the blue side?

    I think you mean @Lord_Bashu

    I wouldn't be too worried about current populations until the crashing problem is fixed.

    Ah yeah ty. Sorry I'm bad with names... Also why is every major DC player labeled as a "Lord"?

    .Just a short clip from yesterday evening. Still having some lag/delay with skills firing at times but at least we aren't crashing constantly. Kudos to the werewolves for always bringing good fights.

    @Lord_Bashu ’s guild still plays Ravenwatch, as do several other major DC guilds. The change is they no longer run open groups.

    I do know many players abandoned Ravenwatch for Gray Host. I’m not particularly fond of seeing most of DC’s population switch sides once we finally get something done, but that’s what ZOS wanted.

    And for the record ZOS - campaign unlock is the worst. Now when you try to get a group together to do something, the trolls switch sides and wreck all sneak attacks. It's pointless to play outside of prime time, which for DC is never. Gee, I wonder why Ravenwatch is dead all the time. Why no one talks in zone, why no one runs open groups.

    Guess ZOS either wants to kill off PvP, or kill off NoCP. ;(

    @CaffeinatedMayhem Which guild are you a part of, I know I've seen you out there putting in work.

    AD was sort of weak with the opening of Ravenwatch but part of it was the crashing issue. But it does look like AD and EP have been consistently higher pop than DC over the weekend in prime time as far as I've seen. If this is the case TM has no issues flipping over to help balance thing out for a bit, and the great thing is if/when DC does recover then we won't be stuck there like in December where we basically just log off early with nothing to do and no one wanting to fight us.

    We would never flip back and forth in the same evening, though, we prefer to commit to one faction for duration of our raid as we've done in the past when the campaign was unlocked. If ZOS implemented a 12 hour soft lock I think this would be the best solution. Reduce the trolling and spying while still not forcing you to stay on an overpopulated faction for a full 30 days. Also prevent from homing on multiple factions in a single campaign so you could only get campaign rewards on one faction, I think that would help assuage some concerns.

    @Kartalin heh, I'm not a part of any guild in No CP. I'm just the one person who is willing to talk in zone and run pugs. Though after this weekend, I won't be running any groups for a while. All the good people went to CP.

    If TM wants to help that's fine, but expect a lot of resistance. I've seen EP and AD players over here, but DC is very leery of help from "the other side." Especially since many "DC Loyal" during faction lock now switch sides to troll whenever they think DC is winning "too much."

    But fair warning, I'm not popular in DC. Sexism is real in ESO, especially in PvP.

    @CaffeinatedMayhem We just want to be able to fight outnumbered. EP does give us some good fights in that regard but it works best when we're on a faction with lower pop than the others. Not saying we'll immediately switch from one side to another but we keep an eye on where the factions are at and factor this into our decisions.

    One thing you may be experiencing, we experience this frequently on AD, is that quantity does not equal quality.

    Also f*** sexism, the only thing that matters is if you're able to get the job done either solo or as part of the group.

    As a known faction hopper, I’d be 100% ok with a 12 hour soft lock. I get that trolling goes on, and I think that would reduce it and please a lot of folks who hate open factions, while still allowing long time players to swap and play with friends on occasion.

    Yeah, DC usually waits for everyone else to sleep. We have at least 1 guild that doesn’t even show up until 10pm Eastern.

    12 hour soft lock would be great. Wish ZoS was smart enough to not do just extremes in their attempt to balance.

    Btw, good team purple today. It was a hard team purple. I know everyone thinks the other factions gain up on them, but damn that team purple was done to perfection.

    AD was outnumbered 3 to 1, had population bonus even, and was a pug that fought against superior numbers, a guild coordinating in voice and cross faction spying and coordination. Got the Emp because of it.

    Though still required for you all to pull half of the AD pugs away from Roe in order to take it. Got to say that communication was spot on. The instant some of us showed up to take a blue outpost, the entire red faction attacked Roe while blues took ress.

    Smh.

    Edit: Oh and how can I confirm team purple? Blues were losing their scrolls, while the guild kept their members watching keeps and attack AD while losing all six scrolls. Pretty obvious.

    Every faction experiences being teamed against, and every faction says "I know it happens to everyone, but it happens to us more!"

    False.

    Teaming happens, and will continue to happen. Same with gate camping, zerging and scroll trolling/farming.

    My favorite moment from last night is how the majority of the 3 bars of DC came to Warden to stop about 25 AD (TM and IOTE) from getting away with one of our own scrolls and they lost their last emp keep to EP in the process.

    We knew we weren't getting away with the scroll, we just had to stay alive as long as possible to help EP out. Go team orange I guess lol.

    Later, both factions pushed south. Team orange as always is brief and somewhat accidental.:D

    Nite Capping in No CP, NA has been around a long time. AD is the only faction that has not done it on a reg basis. Cyro is not about equal numbers, you want to do something positive for your faction? Start a Guild, recruit lots of folks, train them!

    Blaming the other side is pointless, I am sure they wish you had more folks too. I know I do..

    Honestly Cyro is really about Guild Leaders, not groups of 1's 2's. z's….. etc... Its about Guild Leaders and Guilds... So start one today!!

    @Lord_Bashu Cyro can be about any size. I agree in general the objectives require groups... but just as easily smaller groups or individuals can have an outcome in the map. I can’t say how many times I’ve slowed down a dozen DC that should be riding to save Chal, but instead die in 1’s and 2’s until a group chases me. I lead them down a merry path as long as possible before dying, and I’ve succeeded in giving my faction time and less defenders to kill.

    The best way I’ve found to play Cyrodiil is just to hop in to have fun. If fun is playing the map, then do that. If fun is hopping around rocks, do that. It can be whatever you want.
  • Lord_Bashu
    @Odysseus87 Oh you had a great guild!!! we miss them....

    u were a great guild leader too!! Or at least so I am told.. hint hint hint..

    I know I know.. its a lot of work being a guild leader... but it can also be a lot of fun..

    Yes I agree, Cyro can be fun on your own or with a couple of friends, and the faction needs those folks, I was really responding to the person above, who was blaming another faction for having too many folks on... That's not the faction's fault is it?

    The only way to solve that issue is to encourage more folks to join guilds, and start guilds. Which is my main message!!!
