Wait till it fills up before opening a second one, and increase the cost to transfer to something along the lines of 500k Alliance Points.

Right now, You have a bunch of bad AD players on Auriels Bow, a bunch of bad DC players on Bloodthorn, and a bunch of bad EP players on Wabbajack.

You need to force these herp a derps onto 1 server so we don't end up with the crap we have right now. You also need to do this soon, Like this week.... If you wait 48 days for this you're not going to have anyone by that time even playing this game.

    not all the pvp'ers quit - not by a long shot - but the situation is starting to get ridiculous

    seems to be a choice of populated servers where zerg style combat rules - and very little strategy and skill is employed, or underpopulated servers where one alliance dominates the other two, and folks exploiting AP farming and ninja keep taking abound

    for some folks an unappealing choice either way

    We need more DC on Chrysamere.

    Its 20 DC vs 30 AD vs 30 EP.

    The combat is more tactical and skill based. Unfortunately 1 VR10 can screw up and ruin a lowbies day.

    Currently the Pop has dropped tremendously because people dont want to deal with the new DK emperor on the AD side. we spent 8 hours trying to fight him last night, he somewhow managed to stop 4 separate attacks on 4 keeps

    actually it has NOTHING to do with the discussion about cutting down the number of campaigns to 1, and everything to do with 20 people getting owned by 30

    it's sad that folks trying to address serious game imbalance mechanics have their posts hijacked by selfish folks in an underpopulated campaign where 20 of them can't beat 30

    ironically it's a perfect of example of why campaigns like Chrysamere should be shut down right now, period - along with my own home campaign of Skull Crusher

    all campaigns should be reset, 3 campaigns offered, and let's at least try get this fiasco straightened out sooner rather than later

    also, make the reset campaigns just 30 days long - once you find that they are working/balanced/exploits fixed, you might find folks sticking around

    Unfortunately I don't think they'll actually cull the campaigns until the first campaign period is over, which is dumb.

    They could just make the campaigns finish early, in say a week, and then merge/cull them.

    3 Campaigns won't work at the start, you'll just have the same crap as right now.

    Them loading on 1 server for each faction.

    Reduce it to 1..Up the cost to transfer to something silly like 500k to 1 million realm points. Once the first one fills up, add a second server it starts becoming locked, add a 3rd one.

    Throwing 10 out there at the start was just silly.

    in principle i agree with just 1 to start - i think you have to have at least 2-3 to start or else everybody will join the first and only available campaign, make it their home campaign, and then be stuck with ridiculously long queue times - in trying to find a solution, it could create another problem?

    Yeah going for 90 days of campaigns this early is just a bad design decision, especially when the game is in a *** balance stage. It still needs a lot of work to be remotely balanced and provide the advertised "variety of viable builds for every class"

    Quoted for truth. A week ago the map for Auriel's Bow was pretty even on Saturday. Today I logged in and everything was yellow. Right now there's only enough population for one campaign to be balanced for all hours of the day.

    There should have only ever been 1 campaign from the very start.

    Having 10 was a total brain fart. It diluted the numbers available for PvP and now we are seeing the results of this awful decision.

    It's supposed to be a massive civil war, 3 factions fighting to control Cryodiil but instead the Dev's thought it'd be cool to give the players choice in which campaign they'd like to play in. Massive fail there.

    Cryodiil needs to be a massive PvP area able to host [potentially] thousands of players. ATM you see anywhere from 20 to maybe 150 or so at peak times. And that's from all 3 factions combined.

    The campaigns need to close early. Please reward those who did well. But above all, realise that by having multiple campaigns you made a huge mistake. The thing about mistakes is that you have the opportunity to learn from them. Lets hope the Dev's do.

    They were hoping for at least 15k players in PVP, it feels more like 4-5k. Says a lot about the state of the game and general population levels.

    ZoS is on Vacation.... ask again in a month... when they change the flavor of the month class from Dragonknight to something else.

    Penalize Zerging as well, do not award AvA points to anyone when there are more than 24 people in a 50 yard radius...

    and Nerf Dragon Talons.... been saying that since beta...

    Greetings everyone,

    We are closing this thread, as there is an existing thread about the discussion of combining AvA campaigns. That allows us to help players more efficiently and facilitates the visibility of different issues.
