Midyear Mayhem in Q1/19 foreshadowing the future of PvP in ESO...?

What do you think about this?

I read another post about this correlation and thought it might be worth an own thread.

From Abnur Tharn's letter:

Adventurer,

I have followed your progress with interest and deemed you
worthy of rendering assistance. Knowledge has come into my
possession that will help me end the misguided Three Banners
War
and restore peace to Tamriel. You shall accompany me.
Be ready to answer my summons. And answer it quickly…
I hate to be kept waiting.

Midyear Mayhem, as the name suggests, usually takes place in Q3, more specific July (July 22nd in 2017, July 26th in 2018). What could be the reason that we have an event that was used to take place in Q3 to appear in Q1 of this year? Could this be related to Abnur Tharn trying to end the Three Banners War, a possible closure of Cyrodiil or a total revamp of the game's PvP / faction system?

What do you think?

    I think it will just be a cyrodiil rework that removes some of the riding simulator and condenses the map.

    I know there are but I've never read about the correlation between Abnur's letter and the early Midyear Mayhem.

    We'll hear more next week, i doubt they will remove PvP considering they just spent alot of dev effort on it with changes in Update 20...

    Also it would remove end game for many players,
    They will not remove pvp, as you say they did lots of changes last season.
    One thing who might change is unlinking cyrodil alliance from starting zone.
    Perhaps locking an account to an alliance at start of campaign.

    Changes to IC and sever is another idea.
    Grinding just make you go in circles.
    Asking ZoS for nerfs is as stupid as asking for close air support from the death star.

    My guess is that we will get two Mayhem's they will have one event each months from now on and duplicating Mayhem is easy.

    Well I can say this, the shameless 3 stacked full 24 man raids we are fighting from both EP and DC atm very much reminds me of early ESO PvP play. And while I do have some lag, it’s not that true slide show I thought it would be.

    I’m having lots of fun! ^^b

    What do you think?

    1) The Abner Tharn letter was written from the perspective of a character in the game. He is an Imperial Battlemage that sits on the Elder Council, not a game developer. Of course he thinks the war is misguided. He is hardly going to come out and suggest that one of the warring factions sits on the throne. He wants one of his own people on the throne. and a scheme to make that happen. Of course, this scheme will fail. We only need to look at who is behind it to understand that. Tharn is nothing more than an opportunist, fickle to the core. He will stick with this plan right up until he sees a better one. If we are lucky, he will not hang us out to dry for being foolish enough to help him.

    2) ZOS needed an event for the Indrik event tickets promotion, wanted it to be a PVP event, and July was deemed too far away. Someone decided to do an event and call it "Midyear Mayhem Encore". An amazing lack of creativity for a studio that is normally pretty good at creativity. It's like the dev team wasn't even involved much at all. Some producer just thought of it at the last second and threw it together with a minimum of development and testing support. That is what it feels like.

    I feel that the whole Season of the Dragon and Midyear Mayhem in January are related only in that they are both ESO. Beyond that, I don't feel any connection between the two things. They are separate and independent. One, a master plan thought out and considered by trained developers. The other, tossed together out of scraps and spare parts by someone else.

    Pretty excited for the announcement today. Morrowind had me as hyped, Summerset now. I am very curious to see if something PvP relevant is changing this year or if everything stays the same.

    Tis the one reason I play the game ☹

    Yeah, no Cyrodiil PvP = bye bye ESO for me.

    They did the PvP event early cause they were lazy to invent some new event for us to enjoy while they needed to give us event tickets. Normally the first event offering us tickets would be jester festival or maybe some anniversary daily quest. This way we have each month access to event tickets. That is the only reason we have PvP event earlier.

    Well that's official, not only Cyrodiil doesn't go anywhere, it will get some improvements! I'm especially hyped for IC separation from rest of Cyrodiil! ^^ and of course performance improvements, Rich said it's one of their primary goals this time.
