Very disappointed in no proc / no CP decision

I have to confess, I'm very disappointed at the decision to lump no proc in with the no CP campaign. At the very least, I'd like to request you also give us a no proc campaign with CP. I'm not even sure why someone would think the best way to implement no proc would be to simply add it in to the no CP campaign.

    As far as I can tell they stated on live stream that they will add some sets to the list available to use in no-proc campaign. So I would imagine we will have some form of build diversity. My guess is that they will just not allow for dmg dealing & healing sets and other sets that have condition check will work.

    I'll just go back to my No Proc set I used before, as long as I can use Wild Hunt Ring, Prisoner's and Coward's gear to Run Scrolls back I'm happy

    Source???

    Edit: Found it. Recent Twitch about Waking Flame, roughly 1 hour 6 minutes.

    No cp, no proc, no Volendrung. Many more sets will be considered "no proc" than during the test. Well, I guess we'll see on Monday what that means exactly?

    Current no proc is based on how calculations was set so it depends if they're completely recoding old ones or just be removing "harmful proc sets" as no proc wasn't that much a performance gain to begin with.

    Well. What do you need this for? You will have to guess for every set that does not give a flat 5th place.

    It's a good decision imho. It means newer or returning players with very low CP can have a good time pvping without worrying about overpowered proc sets. It makes sense to me.

    I agree. I don't like sets that give extra damage from heaven myself. It's like pet classes to me. Anything else to do if everything else does something for you. Just seat and watch for your free dmg

    We vets take so much for granted which really isn't.


    We shouldn't build barriers for new players. A NoProc NoCP cyrodiil campaign with a healthy playerbase helps a lot in this regard.

    If the changes are made to Ravenwatch I will probably move to another campaign. I wished we had faction locking and would think about staying if they added that. I realise they want to fix the awful lag and queueing issues and the 'treakle' everytime one particular ball group is around.
    To take away my gold sets, and change so much, to in fact, try to force a type of play on me feels like this isn't the ESO I signed up for 5 years ago. I already had to move campaign once because of issues in another campaign. I really don't want to be pushed around like this.
    Faction locking would solve quite a few of the issues already there - what is the rationale for not putting a faction lock on?

    Sorry, but this is sowing more questionable news. DC doesn't stand by one guild (or a few flashy players on the forum) as well as EP and AD. (weird what?) There is also a lot of information where a large part of the playerbase supports no proc.

    so your "propaganda" slogan has no factual reference whatsoever. Plus, forget that your big fancy exodus will attract other players who don't like pvp with procs sets. Yes, they exist

    I'm not a big fan of no proc in the no-cp campaign, but damn. I hate ball groups with a passion. Last night in Ravenwatch (PC/NA server) DC was faction stacking... had 2 ball groups up...must have been 40 DC trying to take a single keep.. I couldn't keep up with how many negates were being thrown down, and how many times I got stunned before getting instantly killed without having the chance of activating a single skill. I'm glad that one DC ball group is moving.. don't let the door hit you on your way out. I rather sacrifice my proc sets rather than putting up with ultimate stacking ball groups.

    While it also makes sense to me, for that very reason, I would also like a noprocc cp campaign, that might get me playing again.

    As other's have said the change to no proc on the no cp server does go against the marketing phrase "Play how you want"!

    No-Cp, No-proc, no hammer = new server surely?

    And give us faction lock back in no CP so those that care about encouraging players into pvp and about their faction's status don't have to deal with those who bounce around factions and then spend their time trolling in zone chat or with the scrolls.

    Yes please, a faction lock would do the server a lot of good and help encourage faction support and everyone fighting for the same goal rather than chasing the faction with the highest points.

    If RavenWatch (or whatever ZOS will call it in the future) does go no-proc, no-hammer I can see an exodus to Greyhost. This will result in long queues on Greyhost and a big increase in the lag. Whilst Ravenwatch would only have the diehard no-cp fans left.

    None of the ball groups, guilds, or hardcore No CP PvP players will migrate to Gray Host. They will migrate to Blackreach. That campaign will finally be competitive again. Blackreach is dead most of the time these days, so the influx from the no cp campaign will be a boost.

    Ravenwatch was locking and running ques during noproc last winter. And we didn't lock last night-on the busiest night of the week. Granted some population has bled off to New World, but the proc set meta does have some bearing to the reduced populations in Cyrodiil, especially in newer players who come in to nonCP and the first thing they run into is a ballgroup. After all, people played Azura's Star without these fancy DLC sets. And spending an evening in that campaign was definitely more fun than anything so far this summer.

    On the other hand, isn't the disabling of 90% of the sets in the game a barrier in itself?

    It's one thing to go into PvP with unoptimized gear, and a whole other (worse) thing to go into PvP only to discover that the gear you have doesn't even work.

    Once this change comes out, there won't be any PvP campaign that's appropriate for low 50s who don't use outside sources (like other players or online guides) to know what sets are actually usable. (Heck, you could even still screw it up with outside sources, if those sources are outdated or designed for the other campaigns.)

    Is anyone going to even play the campaign, when no-proc is not even balanced.

    The classes aren't balanced
    Siege isn't balanced
    Even the set list isn't balanced...

    Doesn't make any sense to me, but hey...If the balance tilts toward you, it will be a great experience and power fantasy at least...

    I don't like playing in CP and I'm not fond of no proc so I might have to stop pvp and that makes me sad. I still don't understand why they want to nuke our current campaign when its easy enough for them to just spin up a separate instance that doesn't displace us and satisfies the vocal minority that wants no proc. Then when they get bored and leave they can do whatever with the instance all the while not disrupting us in Ravenwatch.

    Introducing No-Proc into a campaign is a bad solution to the wrong problem. The dev focus should be on reducing lag and ensuring smooth game-play regardless of campaign.

    The server/programming can't handle Gray Host at current population for current builds and add-ons when ball groups play and current population limits create unbearable queue times during prime-time play time.

    A starting point is to re-balance server populations. ESO desperately needs more faction locked campaigns. Three faction locked campaigns would be ideal but a starting point would be to make at least one other campaign besides Gray Host Faction Locked.

    An interesting test experiment would be to disable all add-ons in Gray Host as many speculate that add-ons are resulting in the majority of lag issues. (Even better would be to isolate the most offensive add-ons and disable the problem at the source - ie. create a global cool-down for add-on server pings in PVP zones).

    Clearly, there is abundant interest in preserving a No-CP campaign but the players of No-CP should not be forced into a No-Proc environment. If devs are insistent on introducing No-Proc for the benefit of new players, create a separate campaign - the new equivalent of a <50 campaign. My advice - Faction Lock Blackreach, Keep Ravenwatch No-CP, and test full removal of add-ons in Gray Host with double AP bonus for a set time period. No-Proc isn't the answer to the right question.

    If the devs are heart-set on Ravenwatch No-Proc, No-CP, do everyone a favor and at least faction lock it. That might at least limit the initial exodus.
