    @ZOS_GinaBruno‌ Will veteranranks be completely gone after this update?

    Update 6 contains phase 3 of the champ system implementation.

    Phase 3 = ' ability to spend points in Champion Passives and many ability changes that complement the system'

    Removal of vet ranks does not happen until phase 4 in a later update.

    Two things.

    First: Will bugs brought up on the PTS actually be addressed.

    Second: Why voice chat on consoles and not on the PC?

    Fantastic! Can't wait for Update 6. Will the Thieves Guild/Dark Brotherhood be accompanying the Justice System or will those be in a future update?

    My guess is they want to get people invovled in the Justice System first before the release the content. Reasoning because they want to make sure you are killing / stealing well oiled machine before they let you join the big boys in their quest content and such :).

    @ZOS_JessicaFolsom With the Justice system will the PVE side of Enforcers be included or not at all?

    Additionally nothing for PVP is mentioned? I thought there were some new alliance war abilities were being added in 6? Is there anything more for PVP too because we have been starved for a while :P?

    I'm thinking things like ditching that horrendous Q-wheel and implementing hotkeys. Or movable window panes, a normal MMO inventory, etc.
    all of this already done by addons
    Quick Slot Bar, and others, just FYI

    Isn't the justice system technicly PvP??..... I mean someone steals or kills and NPC and you get to fight said person if you are an enforcer. Not to mention the Champion System isn't PvE its both ^^.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno‌ any hints on when this will be on the pts???? I am super excited and want to test it out ASAP!
    As Matt mentioned, Update 6 will be available on the PTS in January. :) The patch notes are going to be big!

    Since they are going to be big, we should get started by reading them now so we can be done by January... :wink:

    This is all wonderful news demonstrating the continual evolution of this great game!
    The questions that stand out for me, however, are these:

    Does one necessarily have to be a thief to engage in provisioning? Or, does a thief have the edge over an honest character in creating high level recipes?

    It seems to me that if the answer is yes to either of these questions, then the game has a looming imbalance issue, for thieves will gain greater food buffs for other activities in the game over honest characters. The way to address this is to integrate hunting and farming activities for those players who wish to stay "honest", or for those players who would like to wait to become PVP enforcers!

    It looks like the provisioning revamp could possibly be rolling out with update 6.

    Aww yeah, the future is looking good!

    Too bad there's no Enforcer-thing (PVP for the Justice system) coming yet, but it's understandable since you guys want to patch out the worst bugs before adding more content there.

    Can't wait!

    This sounds AMAZING to say the least, and thank you for getting it out to us so soon. Just one suggestion - please make sure the next patch doesn't degrade the functionality of the game. I don't know how many times your team has patched and had a serious performance issue arise afterwards that keeps players out of the game for days if not weeks. It would be so refreshing for this patch to go thru without any hiccups.

    I am very interested to know if this new champion system, and it's points are capped and at how much? I play every day but not for long, I do not even have a V14 character yet, and am concerned that this new system will make the less hardcore players even less effective in PvP. The gap is already pretty big, and sometimes feels like I am throwing myself at a wall of ebony spikes with wooden weapons.

    Can you give any ideas on new perks being added? I see you can feed your horse faster...anything else to share now? Can we eat food and drink through a perk? Different mounts? Ability altering perks?

    Justice system; I guess is a wait and see...but on the surface it sounds like you're making it so getting the mats is going to be tougher now and we'll be KoS in cities. Can you give a little more detail please? THanks!

    Justice System is awesome. That will make it feel much more like an Elder Scrolls game, even without the PvP elements (which I'm stoked for.)

    I'm tentatively optimistic about the Champion System. I still don't know enough about it to be excited I guess.

    I just hope it enables you guys to stop upping the level cap. Two increases in 6 months is really pretty absurd.

    What I want to do is max out my character stats wise so I can spend all my time in PvP. I enjoyed the story of this game, but I don't want to have grind PvE every so often in order to be competitive in PvP. PvE rewards should be things like gear that, while it may be beneficial, is optional.

    I also hope the champion system allows real advancement through PvP alone.

    Basically I'm hoping that the content itself is what encourages me to play rather than the never ending carrot approach (which reminds me too much of freemium mobile games.) I want to play because I'm enjoying myself, not because I need to gain % increases in order to be able to enjoy myself.

    We have completely replaced the PC user interface with a console-specific UI designed from the ground-up with a controller and a living room play experience in mind.

    Well this interface be also coming to PC version for those wishing to use gamepads?

    All I have to say is that this is almost as exciting as seeing the new Star Wars trailer. Finally proof that the console version is truly being worked on despite the rumors being that it will be cancelled. Glad to also see the new updates coming to add some real immersion to the game. I have to say even with as much hate that Zos gets from random haters, they are the best at keeping their community updated on current events.

    Will the provision update still be in 1.6 I did not see it mentioned in the road ahead. Looks like good stuff, to start off the new year, only downside was hoping to have a little extra to play through the holiday season, so 1.5.6 is it for 2014 it seems.
