@ZOS_GinaBruno Maybe let us know that you're going to throttle logins? What the heck is going on?

    I’m waiting too. My queue time keeps going up instead of down. I think I’m going to set it aside for a week or 2 until they figure it out. Never in my life have I played an online game with this many issues. I love the franchise, but I’m tired of all the issues.

    Just logged in and got the same queue. I thought ZOS megaservers just created new instances when to many people were logged in?

    So F'ing stupid. I paid for all of the content and still pay you every month to play! If you want to make people wait in queue it should not be those who are filling your wallets cash, paying for your bills, ect It's all about the profit, right? You're going to loose a ton if profit if you put paying customers in queue...

    They have to be working to create more instances. I was able to get in fine around 2 pm but now can't get in to character screen.

    @Psilent They apparently improved performance in this patch, so someone in management decided to reduce the number of VMs supporting the game to save money. 20% performance improvement, remove 15% of the servers, users get 5% improvement and it saves them money. Looks like someone showed up to work high, removed 50% of the servers by mistake, combined the code base for this patch and next patch by accident, and the QA team all took medical leave so they decided to just release as-is and hope that the player base doesn't complain too much. Maybe they'll give us a free non-combat pet in the hopes that we'll forget about the biggest debacle since the lighting patch.

    Update: I am very irritated at what seems like gross incompetence here, and don't intend to disparage the dev team - this is just an expression of my irritation. Not editing the original paragraph.

    Nothing. The terms of service state that they can do what they want, they don't actually have to let you play the game.

    It just gave me a failed login and booted me from the queue. Now I am back in the queue, but the time is reduced, was 17 mins, now 5 mins.

    You'd think they would invest in more servers. This game has to be raking in pure profit...It's not like it cost anything to make a fake digital horse and charge you $50 for it.

    My queue went down to 16 minutes, up to 40 minutes, and now it's been like that for about 5.

    That time is just from random number generator.

    The terms of service are worthless. They can change at any moment and often do. You are forced to accept the terms of service AFTER you've purchased the game. Imagine if you bought a house, a real house, and after your purchase was complete, you were forced to accept the same terms of service that this game constantly throws at you. Trufully and legally, you purchase an item and pay taxes on that item, you own it. The terms of service are a joke. I'm sure I can find a law that would nullify the terms due to their inconsistent nature.

    This is a joke. Complete failure, from a game platform that would be, by all standards, considered mature. Release procedures/protocols are proven, refined over time. Five years you'd consider that mature, hell, some games' life cycle is shorter than that.

    I've been in a login queue of 19 minutes, 49 seconds for OVER AN HOUR.

    Gina, you guys need to work on your "effective communication" and transparency, core competencies of any successful business.

    Greymoor release will become known, unaffectionately, as "NO"moor release as ZoS has failed to release anything other than disappointment.

    I hope the ESO community will be more forgiving than I am, as I will not be around for the next release.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno Please consider adding an announcement on the forums pointing to that post so we're not all infuriatingly surprised at things like this.
