    Will Jessica be back on the show? And guessing Gina isn't taking leave till a bit later?

    Can we maybe have a PSA about ESO Live and things devs write up on the forums? I've heard a lot of info in ESO Live that I understand isn't fully developed yet, where as the stuff on the forums here is a little more refined and in its final stages. I get that, but a lot of others claim that "ZOS isn't communicating" because they don't see constant posting about things in development.

    Also a description how to context ZOS for discussions/interviews/information would also be helpful, something that can be highlighted maybe?

    Thanks folks.

    I actually changed mind. Matt is the only person at ZOS that can say whatever he wants about anything he wants to talk about. Hopefully he'll give away some info that others have been instructed not to talk about.

    I don't want to see, or even hear from Matt right now. Always good to have Brian on the show, though! How about we replace Matt with Wrobel to talk about class balance changes? Or even replace Matt with a cactus. Yeah, that'd be fine too. A cactus.

    I predict a lot of words about why Justice System 2.0 was scrapped.

    Also I would like to see the comment about the major change of how world zones treat player leveling. If this is what I think it is (crosses fingers) then I'm going to be one happeh hombre. There is nothing I hate more than wasted content... well besides having a level cap anyways ;)

    I am wondering if you are planning on adding calendars to the guild menu on console? It would be nice to have something in-game that would allow us to set up events on the same game to let guild members see without using external applications. I would appreciate your feedback, thanks.

    Why not? He can talk about whatever the heck he wants he doesn't need to say "I'm not allowed to say this" or "well that isn't in my ability to say you would have to ask Wrobel" type of thing. He just says what he wants to say.

    Hi ZOS and Jessica, here are My questions :
    • Any new itemization for exclusive PVPers ? What about VR16 PVP gear (ravager, cyrodiil light, etc...) ?
    • Raw craft materials pushed to max rank (V16) in Cyrodiil ?
    • Could we have a 25% boost to traveling speed while on roads in Cyrodiil ? Players feel too much time is spent riding.
    • What about reviving other players for free (no soul shards) while in Cyrodiil ?
    • Plan for soloers ? Ex : When not in group can employ a guardian NPC for 10 min.
    • Improved PVP UI ? Ex : Showing location and heading of all friendly party leaders if group>4.
    • What about the gap between those who have macro keyboard/mouse and those who don't (animation cancelling through hardware seems so unfair) ? Plans to allow macro addons to compensate ?
    • Plans for built-in universal same name castle (they currently differ from one language to another, and it is a difficulty for foreigners (ex: French...) to understand and indicate waypoints)
    • Plans to get best "in-session" players like mini-emperorship every hour in each faction for those who cannot farm Emperor (to me emperorship should reward skill, not farm only)
    • Plans to also reward solo roaming playstyle in Cyrodiil ? What about giving incentives away from zerging to address that important playerbase expectation ?
    • Could healer NPCs also heal players please ? I wish they could. I can't think why they should not. Helping once again solo PVPers in defending resources for example, especially if they have a tanking setup.
    • Potions and Cyrodiil buff modification : they currently (de)multiply the player's regeneration after a resource capture for example (ex : "continuous attack"), rewarding more those who enchant their rings and gear with regen and penalizing those who go cost reduction. Would love to see potions and buffs that also do that (or that the buffs split evenly in both resource mechanisms)
    • Heavy armor in PVP is still (very) sub-par, especially since 40%+ penetration abilities and CP are so common. Any balance plans ? Any buff to the "Constitution" passive ? Any return of the former +7% damage to melee attacks ? Other Heavy Armor plans (so many threads on this subject...)

    And also
    • Anti-zerging buff that would also alleviate the lag issue : what about a change in Cyrodiil Battle Buff that fluctuate if you are in a group a raid or solo ? For example :
    • Solo +10% Health Stamina and Magicka, Spell and Weapon Damage and 10% cost reduction and magicka, stamina and ultimate abilities, call it "survival instinct"
    • 2/3/4 players group 5/4/3% Health Stamina and Magicka, Spell and Weapon Damage and 10% cost reduction and magicka, stamina and ultimate abilities, call it "call of the pact"
    • 4+ players : no additional buff
    • This would also make night play more interesting, since it would be more feasible to capture and defend points when fewer players are available.

    Thanks !

    I believe they are addressing this issue on the Thieves Guild DLC. @ZOS_BrianWheeler stating that they are looking at increasing siege weapon damage by a "minimum" of 30%. It was about 3 ESO Live episodes back if I recall correctly.
