And try to keep it proper, no nasty business please :)

As for me, I once saw 2 people wearing the Jester costume dancing in sync at Vulkhel Guard Wayshrine, 1 was like a mini-version of the other lol so in zone chat i said "all people with jester costumes come dance!" and managed to get half a dozen of them :)

    Tagging my striped senche tiger mount with WTS "want to sell" on the xbox one and having 3 people offer me gold and then a text chat war began between people who knew I couldn't sell it and those who had no idea. B)

    I got called a F****** T*** loser because i called some guy out who was trying to sell alloys for double the price.

    Best thing i've seen is some guy saying 'sharpened and penetration is bugged, there is no armour mitigation at the moment so precise is best in slot, it's a new bug. ... Buy my precise sword for only 200k...'

    I just laughed.

    Someone in a trading guild I'm in posted the mind shriven skin. This is the second time he'd had it.

    "OMG I'LL BUY IT. 500K"

    "I can't sell it"

    "WTF? Fine, 1mil"

    "lol, I can't"

    "Wow man. Thanks for helping a guild member out."

    (someone else joined in) "it's bound. He can't trade it"

    "no it's not, he's just being a selfish ****"

    (someone else again) it's bound you idiot

    "no it's not, my friend bought it"

    "from the crown store lol"

    "no, he said a player"

    "he's lieing, he can't.

    "well he did, you're all just being ****"

    It then popped up he'd been kicked from the guild.

    Also, wayrest is always full of idiots spouting crap. Nothing will ever beat the girl asking if someone would run vma for her and she'd send them her dirty knickers. Then 3 guys instantly saying they'd do it haha

    It is all in Cyrodiil so it is comparisons and where appendages have or should be sort of stuff. Probably more funny knowing the egos attached with the statements which can't really be easily explained here anyway. Let's just call it the lengths (pun intended) people will go to to justify their own self importance.

    Mostly the PS4 chat is full of Insults and occasionally you will get that one player who is actually giving out good information in PVP like which side of the castle has an opening ect.

    Otherwise the chat is useless and not really worth looking at.

    Voice Chat is mainly used for group coordination nowadays I'd say. I could be mistaken but I always leave Area Chat off anyway lol

    The first day was pretty funny. I kept putting things up like "WTB Wet Gunny Sack" or "WTB Crown" just for my own entertainment. In truth now it's 90% gear links, people looking for group, or people sharing quests. Every now and again you see some nonsense but overall it's been pretty well behaved.

    Not really anything amusing to say. But I'll indulge

    Sunday night the emperor-ship of a guild mate was threatened in Haderus. I sent out the call to tell him to get out of the Sewers and come back up top to defend the last 4 remaining keeps. By the time he got there, blues gained momentum and pushed really hard towards Alessia where their scroll was. Red was pushing to bottle neck us at Alessia at the same time. So now we're at the last Emp keep.

    I had to /yell out enemy sightings quite often in those 3 hours. We had multiple blue 20+ man ball groups stack up on Alessia farm. Thankfully I had experience in this kind of fight. To explain, Alessia's back walls facing the farm are tricky to defend, the blues would stand on top of that hill and fire down siege. I had to coordinate our forces using /yell to help guide them where they needed to repair, since they can hit the 3 walls and flag the keep for their massive army to move in. We had attempts to push up the hill and flank it on the Westside, but those pushes rarely ever work going up those steep hills, you just get burned alive by projectiles. So the best thing to do here, was to repair the walls and harass them the best we could since an all out assault up that hill is suicide.

    If you have a huge zerg you're fighting uphill against, you first don't want to let them in. So when they had a big push and broke one wall down I had to call for my group to immediately put up oils 2 on each side of the breach. A group mate and I ran oils on opposite side and we had men standing in the breach shooting arrows, anti-personnel siege, and magic at them through the breach. This fight went out for about 20 minutes and I call for our guys to take care of the guys manning the siege close to the back of where Alessa's Farm ends. The emperor himself pushed out hard, taking out the siege and the rest of AD followed and wiped them out. We had a couple more Skirmishes til well past 12am EST, but when I woke up next morning we still had Emperor.

    It felt pretty good to help coordinate that fight, even though I wasn't technically crown or that someone who usually calls the shots. I know from experience just how hard it is to defend Alessia on that side and just knew it was the right time to help out coordinating the effort to keep Emperor. I saw our Emperors Alliance Rank yesterday and I think he got Grand Overlord thanks to keeping Alessia last night. So grats to him.

    While I was patiently waiting by a vampire shrine for a free bite someone kept offering bites for a price. When the people around refused he kept trying to trade and typed "trade with me, ill show you how much money i got" Someone asked why that would matter to them but I turned off text chat before I heard the answer. Sorry, that's the best I have. Maybe I will turn it back on if I need some entertainment...hang out at the Daggerfall fountain and dance nekid. :p

    I have a funny story!

    Yesterday, XBox Accessories was finally restored on my console, so I could create a controller configuration for TESO. I added two paddles and button mapped weapon swap and LB.

    During testing, I inadvertently put the paddles in the wrong slot, and ended up opening the chat window!

    When I stared at the window, I could only think of the dread users have to put up with in using that infernal popup keyboard designed with QWERTY layout, instead of regrouping keys to make it easier for people to access quickly, such as RSTLN and the vowels.

    Hell, even that gameshow gives people these letters now.

    I know many people can't or don't like using mic headsets when playing, but I was once one of these people too.

    I'm never going back to chat on a console until these companies fix the UI, and we all know that's never going to happen.

    -People showing off their weekly rewards
    -People calling out other people for ganking/killing them

    That emperor was still in Haderus IC last night.
    I was wondering WTF is an emperor is doing here!? LOL
    That was a first for me : Seeing an Emp in IC.

    He also had that Grand Overload title.
    Impressive! (What was less impressive was getting bombed left and right by him)

    I can't imagine the amounts of Tel Var he must of made in the last few days...
