    does it mean that since May22 there will be no more changes on pts, i.e. all changes(class, etc.) solidifed before eary access starts?

    We will not be updating the PTS once Early Access begins; next week will be the last patch. That said, we may make additional tweaks before Morrowind's launch in June.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno
    On monday EU chars will stay then or NA copy again?
    We'll be leaving EU characters on the PTS.

    No, the form is strictly for Physical CEs.

    Sorry if I'm dense, but how does ZOS know what account I purchased the Digital Upgrade for so that it's available to me on May 22?

    Edit: Amazon has only given me an order number and states: "This item will be available on June 6, 2017 at 12:00 AM PST"

    And those of us who foolishly purchased the Physical Edition has a PITA process to go through to get verified. Couldn't you at least accept us forwarding the receipt email from Amazon? Nooooo, you make us print it out, write our user name on the receipt, scan or photo the signed receipt, and then attach it to the submission form. L-A-M-E.

    Power level to CP160 in a week:
    Where is the end game? You just played it.
    Why don't I have 300+ skill points? Because you skipped content along the way.
    Where is new content? Sigh.
  • MadMattatatta
    If you're going to let pc/mac have early access you might as well lift the nda on the pts. You're spoiling the game for 2/3 of your player base because new content is all streamers will be playing. what a crock of zos

    Sounds interesting. I just hope the early access is less buggy than the PTS version.
    I might even be able to grind in two certain places for two certain collectable items during those two weeks! (I wish I could say what, but NDA still in effect.)

    Glad I have not pre-ordered. This will give me a couple weeks with base game patch and see if PvE combat is as much of a mess on live as it looks on paper (and is on PTS). If all the Trials/Dungeons/VMA/VDSA turn into heavy attacks online or take twice as long to complete due to low DPS/high sustain builds becoming mandatory, I'll know it before Morrowind truly goes "live". It is like a PC sneak preview to let us decide if we want to buy Morrowind or not. If PvE combat is a mess, why bother buying new Chapter of a game that is likely to lose my interest and that I stop playing? But if combat isn't too bad and PvE combat remains fairly fluid and action-oriented, I'll be able to buy Morrowind with total confidence that it is money well spent.

    Thanks for the early acces! :) I am looking forward to that extra bag space and perhaps Morrowind being a little less crowded than it will be on June 6th.

    In order to get the Early Access with a Digital purchase, does that need to specifically be from the official Elder Scrolls Online store? What if a Digital Copy was purchased through a different website?

    Well if what I believe is correct they are going to be doing what WoW does which is base game patch for everyone but only those who bought morrowind get new content

    Gina, if we got the physical edition Collector's edition does that come with another ESO account or will it only enable Morrowind on our original accounts? (Since someone buying the physical collection collector's edition could in theory be a new player).

    So with my purchase could I upgrade my own game and gift the base game account to someone else?

    Sorry to ask pretty much the same thing as the others, but I bought my digital upgrade via Greenmangaming, and they didn't send me a key yet, I assume it's going to happen near the launch date. Any idea if they will get the upgrade keys from you guys by the time Early Access begins? Or is the early access only for digital upgrades bought through your store?

    Thanks!

    Exciting news. Having a slight problem though, I am unable to get past the log in screen when signing up for early access (I have pre-ordered the Collectors Edition) I enter my username and password hit return ....... nothing ... click 'log in' .... again NOTHING!!

    I have tried 6 times and NOTHING!
    H-E-L-P!!

    Anyone else having the same issue?

    The ESO form process states you need to write your ESO account name on the screen print of your Amazon order.

    In the Amazon order, I selected "View or Print", screen shot this, pasted into paint, added my account name, saved and filled out the ESO form.

    Someone's been beating me over the head with this in another thread... I'm glad this works, but ZOSs instructions wouldn't get you to this solution.

    I had the same problem and thought for a moment that I was going mad. I actually started digging through my password database in search of an entry for ESO Support, because I knew for a fact that I'd been able to log into their Support portal in the past.

    After a while I figured out I was using the correct login details after all, but the Support site wasn't accepting them.

    Warning bells starting ringing in my head, because I've run into this same issue with other online services in the past, where a certain password works just fine on login page A, but not on login page B. Usually this a result of login page B limiting the password length to something less than the maximum password length allowed during account creation, causing lengthier passwords, like mine, to be cut off at the end. This minor oversight makes it impossible to sign in on such a page until the password is shortened.

    I tried resetting my password once without changing the length and still couldn't log into the Support page. I then shortened the password to 10 characters and was finally able to log into the Support site. Supposedly they allow passwords upto 200 characters now, but I get the feeling one of their web developers didn't get that memo...
    Yeah I'm having the same problem.

    Give what I've described above a try. I can't promise anything, but if my theory is correct, shortening your password should do the trick. :)

    What if I pre-ordered the digital upgrade through Amazon? They are stating on the games library page that I can't access the content until June 6th? Am I screwed then?

    EDIT: I simply cancelled my Amazon order as I'm not finding much helpful information that makes a whole lot of sense to me at a glance. If they were going to release this early for current players who pre-ordered it should have been far better thought out.
