I've got so many clips of the 9th arena last round just bugging out. From getting hit and it slowly dragging me across the map in to an enemy attack, or just a random lava ball right before it hits the ground. Getting killed when there's nothing around on the bottom level in the arena not on the top near the dot. unresponsive button input and/or extreme delay( my connection is fine 70Mb connection with a 9ms ping )

    yep

    also:
    - bash not interrupting enemies
    - heavy lightning attack not working at all (for a few seconds)
    - skills not firing (e.g. flame lash, shield,...)
    - bar swap not working
    - lag and disconnect although FPS stays >=60 and ping between 60-100
    - enemy effects not showing or showing too late, e.g. when you are dead
    - vMA plays like trying to run through when stuck in 1m deep mud

    Stop the grind! Get rid of stupid events and daily-quest gallore. Get rid of "have a chance of 1 in a million to get a piece of 1 in 30 to get a stupid motif or pet... wtf..."

    Well usually it's not like that for me but I did have some near unplayable runs in the past. I've found a workaround to this problem. Simply restart your client right before you enter Maelstrom, and once you log in go right there so the game ends up loading the minimum amount of zones outside the arena. Most of the glitches are in fact caused by the client having too many things loaded and causing lag. Also these days may be some server side lag due to many people accessing the arena at the same time because of the event. I've noticed that even before this runs not done at peak hours were much smoother.

    I agree that this might help. Still, in 2017 and running a 6 Core CPU + 16 GB DDR4 + 8 GB RAM on GPU this should not even be an issue...

    gitgud issue?

    Had a run on my magplar yesterday - no issues, just some lag, but I had same lag in Cyrodiil as in vMA, nothing to write home about.

    Definitely something occurring with VMA that isn't occurring in typical content for me recently. I killed one of the round 7 Trolls and when the next round started was killing trash and got desyncd and died. Checking my death recap i was surprised to see the Troll from the previous round killed me. I would like to think it's from player population in Wrothgar but thats a guess.

    I suppose in Falkreath something similar occurred. During the last boss we were behind the pillars during the shout and a teammate was hanging out in no man's land. We laughed and said better get behind a pillar as they are very experienced but they said they were. Shout happened, they died. We posted a screeny in a psn and they posted a screeny. On our screen wasn't where their body was on their screen.

    Hopeful todays maintenance fixes this. To Eso's credit though, most mmo's I've played had daily maintenance which was mostly just a server reset to avoid this type of stuff. If anything I don't know how they keep the server up as long as they do.

    Yeah, I've beaten it several times and actually walked through last night easily. This morning the button response time is absolutely horrid. Skills won't cast, register that I've cast them, or they will cast randomly 10 seconds after I've used them. This is a problem for the entire game though. Though In VMA I've been getting nuked with my shield up. I die and it says I took 15k-18k damage when I have around a 18k shield, and 17k+ health. Then when you cast it but the game refuses to acknowledge that you've cast the shield it will glitch the game and let you run around for a few seconds even though you're dead. This has been a problem for awhile. They keep adding new junk to the game, and not fixing what is already broken, and breaking the even more in the process there hasn't been once major patch they've done that hasn't broke things. Think I might just end up quitting ESO, and going to Destiny 2 I know of a few people that will leave when I do. I cap the video every time a bug/glitch happens in all the game I play so far eso has the biggest folder of vids, and pics it's about 150GB bout to edit it and post it and share it for everyone to let them know what they are getting into if they are thinking about buying this game.

    I'm sick of telling support telling me I'm just unlucky, or that I'm the only one with the issue. When you can just easily google the stuff and see a bunch of people with the same issues since the games launch. They treat you like a brain dead child.
