    Interesting. I tnought we just had one of these. Has it been that long, already?

    Can I put in a friendly request to offer something to the ESO Plus people aside from Crown Crates, in some future version of this event?

    What would you like to see? :)

    Question @ZOS_JessicaFolsom / @ZOS_GinaBruno : "The ESO Plus Bonus Event begins on Tuesday, July 10 at 10:00AM EDT and will run until Monday, July 16 at 10:00AM" vs "...each day from July 10 until July 15".
    Does the event end July 15 or 16?

    So, it technically ends on July 16 at 10am EDT but we message July 15 since it's not the full day on the 16th. It's confusing, I know. :/

    The Striped Tiger Senche was special for a while; it was a great reward. We have a million mounts and costumes now, but unique mounts or costumes or even full motifs would be far more rewarding than 25 Fortifying Crown meals thatn you turn into gems that can buy nothing interesting or special either.

    In that vein, how about the long-delayed Moonlight Senche Mount that was supposed to be the matching counterpart to the Moonlight Senche Pet? I've been waiting ages for this mount to come out, and ZOS never has answered why the delay. We know the asset was made and saw it in PTS a long time ago. Since they just pimped out the Moonlight Senche pet again during a recent sale in June, why not release the mount as a reward?

    One thought was to enhance the existing benefits on a daily basis for the duration. I know that XP, and inspiration boost, and research time reductions are not flashy, so they tend to get panned, but they are useful. Maybe double that during the event.

    Another thought was to double crafting resource harvests (plants, ore, mob drops, etc) for the duration. Give people something to put in that bottomless bag.

    A new thought would be to tie into the daily rewards and have a claimable reward every day. Have it progress each day so that on the last day there is something like a 100% XP scroll for those who were on each day.

    Double harvest scrolls would be awesome. I'd prefer not to include the mob drops though since they fill up inventory super fast and if you are on a harvest run with a scroll ticking the last thing you want to do is stop to decon.

    We need a recipe in game for this. Or a crafted set.

    I re-subbed at the beginning of the month, but right now the game is unpredictable and often times unplayable. I'd love to have the "disappearing" walls/floors bug to be fixed because it happens so frequently that right now, even when I can log in, I can't really play.

    Even though I feel the current benefits of ESO+ are more than enough for me, I wont complain about getting beefier perks. But honestly-and I'm not saying this to be snide-if the game remains in its current state, I wont be resubbing. It isn't meant as a threat, it is just a matter of fact that I am paying for a game that is almost always unplayable and no amount of added perks and bonuses is going to fix it.

    As a suggestion for something other than Crown Crates - perhaps some Crowns each day?

    I like the free crates since I don't buy them but for others maybe getting that (is 400 crowns for 1 crate?) instead would be better.

    I think a mount/pet/collectible would be difficult due to having to log in each day during the event. Would you only get the prize if you logged in every day? What would happen if you didn't log in one of the days? Unless it was made so that logging in at any time during the event awarded the prize - but then ZoS wouldn't get their Daily Login incentive too!

    Things I would like to see for ESO+ Subscribers:
    1.) Able to have TWO non-combat pets active at one time.
    2.) More slots in houses. (I can't even display all my trophies).
    3.) Loyalty Rewards
    4.) Early access to DLC's
    5.) Reduction or elimination to the fee charged by "The Smuggler" assistant
    6.) Guild store access from "The Merchant" assistant
    7.) Guild Bank access from "The Banker" assistant


    Not specific for ESO+ but additions this game needs:
    8.) Pull down menu to change attunable crafting stations. (ie. Instead of 10 crafting stations, just 1 with a pull down menu with all bought stations for that craft).
    9.) Stop the dismount that happens when interacting with crafting writ boards (you stay mounted with merchants, why dismount for a crafting board?)

    Dye Crates. Each card would have a 5x applicator for one Crown Store exclusive dye that could be used on any dye channel on either a costume or an outfit. Maybe have a rare chance to permanently unlock a color.

    You could trade in for gems at 2 gems per applicator or 10 gems for the 5x stack. But at 20 applicators per day and 120 total, it would be a decent enough supply to use between promos.

    I'd imagine Crown Crate activity is highest 10 days upon release and 10 days prior to retirement, so offering them in the middle of a season doesn't do much to amplify their appeal or convert to additional subscriptions. And some people are going to hate them no matter what. But dyes are a cool, non-essential cosmetic bonus that are still attractive enough to sub a month to receive.

    Was there something else originally intended for ESO+? I ask because the layout of the section headers plus their following text is confusing.
    Announcement title: Short explanatory paragraph of the announcement, plus the dates it will run.
    Earn up to 6 Crown Crates: Explanatory text for ESO+ subscribers who will get these crates.
    Trial ESO Plus free: Explanatory text and descriptors for the benefits active for those eligible for this.
    Giving back to ESO Plus members: Here's where it breaks form, and without explanatory text related to 'giving back', instead asks for feedback from those who might be thinking about getting ESO+. Confusing. Unless this was intended as more a footnote that reaffirms what was listed above about the Crown Crates, but it's still jarringly out of place as is.

    Note that I expect to get absolutely nothing out of these crates. I absolutely detest gambling and my luck with gaming freebies has always been abysmal. But that's alright, I'm not upset over that. I was just left honestly a bit flummoxed by this announcement because of how it was structured, it leads one to believe there's more coming to ESO+ subscribers with that final header, but then there's not. It's like something's missing. Thus my asking if there were other plans or if it was just a mixup with the layout of the announcement texts.

    I hope, more people will join ESO+. The fairest and most useful subscription model I have seen in an MMO so far. :)
    I couldn't imagine living without it, when I'm a someone who plays almost everday. I would not exist without this crafting bag :D

    Crates are fine with me for the event. Long term though, the ability to store all unplaced furnishings in the craft bag would be a nice touch.
