PVP-Cyrodil/BG/Dual

This is the second PTS where BG que never pops, and Cyrodil is empty. Where do yall dual at?

I always end up standing around the spawn in point as its the only reliable place to find people. It's pretty sparsely populated though.

It is hard to test things for PVP when there is no real PVP environment. I wonder if ZOS could setup a BG that could be loaded into like Cyrodil without having to have a full set of 12 players accept a que.

    I popped into the PTS Vivec Cyrodiil. Soloed a couple of resources and saw one player, an AD who'd soloed Bleakers and proceeded to kill me. When one guy solos an outpost, you know its a pretty empty campaign.

    Right, sorry, well.... Where are all the testers then? Try and find where the population is at.

    Last two weeks I have had 3 days or so that I could get on PTS. Each day I found Cyrodil empty, except today when I found 3 reds which appeared to have never played the game before. I killed them and they never came back.

    I'm not a PVPer but I'm not a total scrub, if I had the space for a PTS I'd offer to fight with ya, but alas the PTS was not designed well.

    That is the point of this thread, PTS is too sparse for the scale of Cyrodil. Battlegrounds need 12 people qued to pop, they never seem to pop. Perhaps a smaller version of Cryodil or BG could be setup so players could just travel in to dual or pvp. Without having to ride across Cyrodil hoping to find anyone, or wait hours on end for a BG that isn't going to pop.

    The world is too large for how sparsely populated it is. After the first few days it is essentially a solo rpg on the PTS.

    I imagine the best way to solve this is not make people redownload the entire game all over again to play on the test server

    Well I don't know if this is the best way, but it would improve it for many players in your same position.
