    How many skills will the champion system incorporate?? And will these skills be able to contribute in PvP and PvE to help balance certain builds and diversify them?

    I was looking forward to play Update 6 throughout the Holiday...oh well, at least they'll fix more issues this time.

    Are you frickin kidding me?! The console version get's integrated voice and a new UI?? We really have been beta testing this game for the console release. It's pretty obvious now why these patches and updates have been such crap, they are devoting their resources to the consoles. Can you please redo the PC UI from the ground up? It's terrible. Also some controller support would be really nice especially since it would be pretty easy to add the same XBox controller support to a PC.

    I love the default min UI that is made for KB&M. I can not use voice chat, thus I do not want in the game and try to be forced to use it and be deny content. So I do not want VC in ESO as the default.

    I am very happy that the console are getting their own UI and their UI does not mess up the PC version.

    I am also happy that ZOS is taking their time in building systems like CS and JS ones. It is far better and easy to tweak and troubleshoot if one build them in phrases like ZOS is doing. I am very happy and like what I see in this Road Head from Matt.

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

    Neither the Enforcers or Outlaws will be in the first phase of the Justice System. They will both be coming in the next phase.
    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?

    Yes, there are a few new PVP abilities coming in Update 6 as part of the Champion System!

    Great 8 months and PvP players will get only few new skills!

    No, that comes in phrase 4 of the CS system. This update is on phrase 3.

    Looks like stats will be changing with update 6. Was really hoping there was going to be another way, other than stats being multiplied... I know it doesn't change anything really just found stats that cap at 5,000 or less to be more aesthetically pleasing. Compared to one's that go past the 10,000 mark.

    True I'm just taking this from a small screenshot, if you look at the rawhide gloves their level one with thirty-four armor and twenty-eight magicka.

    Still excited for this update though, and can't wait to read the patch notes when it goes to pts.

    Pvpers = second class citizens
    Not one content update for us, we pay too. I believed you guys could get this down. It's simple pve update, fluff, pvp update, fluff etc. 7 months now and nothing, let's see 15 X 7 = 105 of lag, instability and most importantly no new content. That's a 1 and a half of a new game, yet nothing for what was marketed as a big part of this game.

    Gotta agree here. Only thing I can hope is...there will be lots of opportunities to change your class and how you PvP by the new perks being added as part of the champion system.

    I think this is a great announcement. Absolutely fantastic. There's a lot changing and being added in and that is hugely positive.

    There is a but though.

    I love this game. I truly do. It's also the only game I play as I have so little time for games at the moment. I am V10 and just finishing the second to last area of the gold.

    Then I'll try Craglorn and then . . .

    I guess what I am saying is I would love more stories. More quests. More continuation. More areas.

    Add Winterhold - think of the quests you could have with the college. Add Solstheim. Vvardenfell. Sunmerset. Elsewyr. I know these things take a long time to programme and design and code etcetera but . . . More areas. More dungeons. More of Tamriel please. These new systems are brilliant but don't add huge playability.

    This is a welcome update.
    People dont seem to realise all the calculations or core systems are being completely overhauled from the ground up.
    This isnt a bang one out in 5 minute jobby.
    Looking forward to seeing the updates in the flesh.
    NOTHING will have such a massive impact as this update (both PVP and PVE).

    Please though....no more game breaking bugs at the same time.
    I seriously cant go through that crap again.

    @ZOS_JessicaFolsom - Could you provide some more details on what's coming for PvP? Between the slow response to fixing (or even communicating about fixing) the lag issues, to the lethal arrow bug remaining unpatched, there's a huge crisis in morale among PvP players right now. We desperately need some more positive communication from Zenimax right now if Cyrodiil PvP is going to survive.

    I just resubbed yesterday to check out all these neat new things.

    Reading this info about Justice System implementation, it sounds like the first stage is all about getting players established as rogues and thieves. There's really not anything there for someone that wants to be on the side of the law. Those players have nothing to do until the PvP stage is introduced.

    Am I missing something?

    Also, is there any benefit to being a good guy? Other than being able to walk freely around town I guess.

    Does Tamriel have a Goody Two-Shoes Guild?

    Everybody must first be evil and corrupt, so one man can stand and be the hero Tamriel deserves.....
    Bobbity Boop, this game might become poop, but I'll still play because I'm just a pile of goop!

    Awesome. And omg, finally some information about console versions. I have one problem with this: if consoles are getting interface designed specifically for them, then what the hell did PC get? Because it sure isn't a well-designed PC UI. So I vote for interface overhaul too!

    But then again, how often do you see developers making platform-specific UIs? I'm glad you aren't taking the easy route with it. :)

    so this also confirms that no work appears to be really be happening during the holidays....

    can we at least get some returned stability to the game on the live version before everyone at ZOS decides to take 3 weeks off?
    I play every class in every situation. I love them all.

    So, no new playable content except champ points clicking and tomato stealing, and Imperil only +- 3 month away from now, bad... Will be better if they move tomato stealing on sometime later but gives us new playable content(Imperial or...), with it champ system will be much more interesting, than boring grind of existed content for 10th time again.

    Really like this road ahead and the fact that these features will introduce more sandbox elements to the game.

    Things that I think ZOS should keep in mind for players going forward with this new system:
    -Continue to improve some elements of the UI to encourage players to communicate with each other
    -Make sure group mechanics are addressed properly . . . I mean if people want to steal stuff in a group, how will this work?

    Another thing that has been mentioned is this thread is the attention that Cyrodil needs right now. If one of the moderators could tell us, what is being done to stabilize the current Cyrodil environment and to improve it? Is there any new information from Brian Wheeler about the direction that PvP is taking? I think that some aspects of PvP need to be changed and I don't mind if changes occur as to how keeps are assaulted and taken as long as it is more fun and makes things more strategic and less Zerg like.

    im disappointed that we wont be getting the PvP elements to the justice system with its release, but i understand why that part of it has been withheld, and am willing to wait for its release a bit longer if it means it wont be a copy of Cyrodill PvP, whch is so full of lag and bugs that it drives me crazy just thinking about it.

    I think that a Firor-level statement about lag and stability in Cyrodiil is long over due, even if they have no clue what is wrong and how to fix it.
    • Worked to increase our overall transparency and communication with you, our community, which is also a continuing effort

    A statement on Cyrodiil lag sometime in the next 24 hours would be an excellent "continuing effort" to increase overall transparency and communication, I think.

    I am not an ESO PvP player and, as a dedicated lone-wolf PvE player, I think that of all of the items that they need to discuss, Cyrodiil lag is the #1 issue. There should have been an entire section in The Road Ahead to address this one single issue.
