For those of you spared the constant crashing/freezing, desyncs, disconnects, login errors, lobby errors, and game refusing to load: I'm legitimately happy for you. For those of us who drew the short straw? This is unacceptable. These issues have been ongoing since update 31. The game is essentially unplayable for us.
Yesterday alone I crashed more than 24 times.
Crashes are occurring in PVE overland, in dungeons, in BGs, in IC, in Cyrodil, in undaunted delves, in public dungeons, in housing, during crafting surveys, during writs, when composing player mail, when previewing crown crates, when leaving BGs, when leaving instances in dungeons, during character select screens, during log in screens, during game load, when doing literally NOTHING because the game just loaded 10 secs ago.... EVERYTHING is crashing.
Mutli threading isn't enabled, lower graphics quality didn't fix, disabling addons didn't fix, updating drivers and addons didn't fix, repairing the game didn't fix, uninstall/reinstall the game didn't fix, AND I can stream music and videos flawlessly even when the game derps, so it isn't an internet issue. SOMETHING in update 31 broke the game across multiple servers and platforms for quite a few of your players, and these issues remain unresolved.
PC NA/E, XB1 NA/EU
Grandmaster crafter, alt-o-holic, PC NA/EU, and XB1 NA/EU
I'm getting the crashes as well. It happens once an hour or so in the normal world but in Cyrodiil it crashes every few minutes. I have tried all the things suggested (restarting Xbox, unplugging Xbox, deleting ESO and reinstalling, deleting save file) and nothing seems to work. Xbox Series X Performance Mode.
Checking in post Core 2 raid:
Xbox Series X - changed to fidelity mode for this evening. 24 MHz. No HDR settings.
vSS HM - 1 player crashed at first add pull 2nd wave.
Multiple players crashed in big cat room.
2 (?) Crashed Next big room before Ice dragon.
Multiple DCs on Ice Dragon HM - managed to clear.
Made it to Fire Dragon. I tried to chain adds under dragon and in Fidelity mode was frame by frame - we had 1 or 2 DCs. Called wipe. Changed to performance mode - crashed myself mid pull multiple times. Multiple other crashes. Got frustrated and shut my Xbox off.
6+ year player, thousands invested between crown crates, ESO+ (never missed a month!) And multiple houses and buying crowns.
I absolutely love this game. Please, for your loyal dedicated fan base - fix the broken things on console. I have lost multiple people over the years (5+ year GM of trials guild) due to the state of the game.
As I said earlier - pull the servers down for a few days and just rework all the broken -
Fix the crashes. Fix the voice chat bugs. Fix turning into a chicken (hilarious but, c'mon!). Fix the setting for your brightness. Fix PVP for the love of all thats holy!
I know good help is non existing and people don't want to work - but I bet you can find some tech people that will! If you teach me how to code, I will try to fix it!
I promise you, if you pull the servers down and actually fix the broken - your loyal fan base will spend the money you will "lose" and then some - because we will be happy our favorite game is playable again.
Please keep us posted and don't leave us in this state through the weekend - we have another raid planned tomorrow and I just want to raid! My crew just wants to raid. 😑
@ZOS_GinaBruno I know its out of your hands and you probably don't read the millions of tags you get but please keep us posted. Its very hard to keep raid teams going if we can't raid - we need a glimmer of hope before people start quitting in droves again.
Are there plans to do a hotfix for the DC issue literally cant play the game. This need to be addressed quickly until it's fixed consoles cant really do anything . Zos needs to take focus off crown store and fix the game. If it had been a crown issue the game would have went down yesterday for patch. @ZOS_GinaBruno
Its not just the series X/S, it's happening on One X/S also. Although maybe not as much for some folks.
I think its associated to a memory leak. - As I said in another thread.
I crashed less over the last day or two by deleting 3 toons. (Putting it at the original 9 slots.) - I've been actively trying to get all bag/inventory counts on toons to under 110 (Non ESO+ cap.) and bank space to under 220 (non ESO+ cap.) but the bank space has been harder for me to do. I cleared out half my crates as well.
Game runs marginally better, the more work I do on this project. - Connected? I don't know. But I've had less crashes and log-in freezes over the last 36-48hrs or so than I was prior.
There needs to be a fix from zos, cause I'm not deleting anything. they just need to fix the game or give an eso plus refund , since I cant play the game, every guild I'm in is having the same issue @ZOS_GinaBruno @zos
Yeah this is problematic, I actually never nag about any non-blocking bugs. But I just can't play right now, that's 3 days of useless eso+ and the weekend is starting, not to mention I was looking forward to the DM battlegrounds.

The part I find the most frustrating is the fact when crown store is bugged they will instantly take game offline for a fix. but game breaking bugs or worse in this case the dev team is nowhere and there is mo info being released about it. [snip]
