I think would be cool to be able to choose which background you want to have displayed on the character select screen, from the latest one to previous ones.

    As much as I am for this new autumnal background, it would be great if people had a choice, that's true.
    My wishlist for ESO
    I.Skills:
    >>weapons: Polearms, Unarmed, Crossbow

    >>Sorc's Twilight - perched animation

    >>a skill line - a guild having this - to enable us to increase % gold gain for donating Ornate gear (another gold sink in order to gain more pennies - but over time it would pay off)

    II.Overland Mechanics
    >>tree climing in Grahtwood / Malabal Tor / Greenshade, etc. (with tall trees)

    >>rock climbing in Glenumbra / Rivenspire / Stonefalls, etc. (with tall peaks)

    >>new skill lines - Adventure (enable climbing, increase flora and fauna harvesting chances)

    III.CP 2.0
    >>Craft Tree development --> https://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/594079/idea-craft-cp-sub-tree-ideas-constant-wip#latest

    III.Replayable content in overland
    >>dynamic pocket rifts to Oblivion - eg. to Vaermina's in Stormhaven, Boethiah's in Deshaan, Hircine's in the Rift OR in Bankgorai, etc. to get Daedric Sets relevant to the Prince, something like Oblivion rifts in Blackwood / the Deadlands

    IV.Geography
    >>Pyandonea - we had some quests WITH Maormer (Summerset, High Isle) - maybe we could meet them there? Poke poke, nudge nudge, wink wink, eh ZOS?

    >>Norg-Tzel - for Mara's sake, ZOS, REMOVE it from the list please!

    V.Other
    (the ideas are also inspired by other Forum Users' posts)
    >>pet battles! We collect SO MANY pets, and yet there are just a cosmetic. What a HUGE potential lies within those tiny beats!

    >>ASOC - a new server in Asia and Oceania. If people have a bad ping there, it would be great if they had a server reaching their places more easily. And hey, it would make THREE servers, not two.

    >>highlighting WBs that are being fought

    >>possibility to dye barding

    >>possibility to switch UI between guild bank<-->bank<-->guild trader

    >>display the dialogue options so that we can see which answer the NPC is reacting to

    >>a way to make Overland more challenging - for those who want

    We can pick old music, so why not background too. Let people pick their favourite background, so we are not forced to have one we loathe. No matter if that's spashed with orange juice or standing in mushrooms.

    I'm still also hoping for my 'random' music option as well.

    I get the CSS being designed to hype the new chapter, and this is definitely prettier than the last one (with the pizza mushroom that everyone talks about), it's really just the harsh lighting washing out my character that annoys me. If it had lighting that allowed me to see my character's colors, I'd be fine with it.

    Still really miss my OG snowy landscape though.

    I'd love if we could have a selectable CSS.

    Actually, my most favorite option would be if we could have all of our characters standing next to each other. I'd much rather get one of those lineup-style ones to see my main standing next to (and being totally dwarfed by) my secondaries :D

    I love the new background. I don't want it to be changed.
    But I vote with both hands for background select option.

    Firstly, it might save some people that I believe feel uncomfortable with new gamma.
    Secondly, it would allow me to keep current background if I don't like the next one.
    Total win-win.

    I would like to use the pre Summerset Aldmeri Dominion background. If i remember right there were a small river in the back. Auridon styled details in the front. So i hope they will allow this in the future.

    This would be a nice option. I kinda miss the old faction character login screen.

    I will certainly throw my vote into this hat.

    I want to use Khajitti backgrounds for my characters! (I can't remember if Elyswer had a background when that released or not)

    IIRC the first background update for character screen was for Greymoor chapter.

    Till that we had alliance based backgrounds. So no separate back for Elsweyr unfortunately.

    what a nice idea

    could be a choice between :
    • last chapter background (default)
    • alliance based background
    designers team wouldnt have more work, since it already exists, only the coders for UI in menus to add this option as a selectbox

    Same, but they're always going to push the latest DLC by making you look at it behind your characters on the selection screen.

    It's a marketing tool that I don't see them voluntarily giving up.

    We can already chose the music that plays in the main menu so why not character background ?

    Going even further, it could be "per character" choice and maybe even some kind of cosmetic customization.

    This is a nice idea but as always it demands work hours and investment by ZOS to make it happen.

    Alas, I don't think this will be viable at short time. MAYBE, in the next upgrade is ZOS decide to do it.
