Crown store bought homes should not be linked in to ESO+.

As the title says, houses that are as exorbitantly expensive as the crown store exclusives, the Grand Topal, the Dawnlight, Earthtear and other exclusives, should not be held to the same item count restrictions as the other houses. A single one of these houses costs more than it does to buy ESO with all of it's DLC minus Murkmire, along with a decent month or two of ESO plus on top. We're talking in the range of £75 ($95.86) for someone who buys just enough for the unfurnished, to, and this is assuming we're dealing with a person who utterly whales themselves to get crowns to furnish things as well who goes for the maximum bracket they can, £109.99 ($140.59).

Considering Zenimax is charging these kind of prices for a single piece of fluff content, I find it utterly appalling that they then hold the owners of these expensive monuments to the same standard as anyone else who's bought a house for either regular coin or crowns. If I paid the better part of a hundred pounds for a house with 750 item slots, I want those item slots no matter what my status as a + subscriber is.

Indeed, I think the same should be true for any house bought with crowns rather than coin. Players should be rewarded for investing money into the game via these items, not milked further because they chose to invest in something they were passionate about.

As to the argument of 'but it then detracts a selling point from ESO+!', I would argue that the three main selling points, access to all content, an XP bonus and the crafting bag, is more than enough for a subscription incentive, and those already paying their sub fee do so more for their crafting bag than their houses' item limit.

Anyone else agree with this?

    I'm pretty much of the opinion that whoever is pushing ZoS' marketing team has no morals. Sure they need to make money but the prices for things in this game are just rediculous, ZoS is part of a multi-billion dollar company like Blizzard, so it seems like they don't care about players at all and just care only about the cash.

    From last I heard, the pursing pushing or running the crown store used to run the same kind of things over on Star Wars: The Old Republic.

    If you never played it, let me tell you, its #@#$!'n disgusting. The game is barely playable without a subscription.

    Have to disagree. You bought a house with a set limit. Having ESO+ offers a double to that amount. You know full well the system.

    But, you dont lose places items when you lose eso+. You have everything still in place.

    While I'm still not thrilled with some of the suggestions that individual probably brought to ESO, that particular ESO marketing director left the game nearly two years ago, in February 2017.

    I agree with this. You could simply have eso plus for how long you wished to decorate and then cancel. You will still have it like that. It is the same with the craft bag you can take out but not put anything in. You would also get crowns to help you decorate while you complete your home.

    Double housing slots is a "perk" for ESO+. Thus, all houses, even those purchased in the CS are set to a certain limit, which is doubled for ESO+. Thus, you didn't purchase a 700 slot home in the CS and only got 350, but rather you purchased a home from the CS that had 350 slots. If you have ESO+, that is doubled to 700.
