    because of servers not able to process the many calculations for PVP. @ZOS should dramatically increase their capacity!!

    then no AoE caps are needed!!

    If only the combat team or who ever is in control of that *** could be kind enough to tell us why.

    You need to calculate more with caps than you´d have to without...

    I've never seen ZOS communicating their intentions about it. And if they did now, I probably wouldn't believe them that's what they originally intended.

    Probably because of PvE? Otherwise there is no logic for the AoE cap existance now. Currently the calculations for the AoE cap are much more than no AoE cap.

    I don't think, you would be able to pull enough NPC above the cap, before they run away to their original position. Except perhaps in some dungeons/challenges, but who really cares about some AoE spamming crazies there? I even imagine that being quite hilarious, if successful... :p

    Obviously ZOS has a different idea about design than many of the self-appointed professionals posting on the forums. We'll have to live with it as long as ZOS act all mysterious and ***.
