    Was just talking about video games with a coworker. He mentioned his favorite game of all time was Skyrim and was only kinda aware ESO existed.

    I mentioned the Bosmer changes and his immediate response was, to paraphrase, "But that's what they're known for!"

    Yeah, sure, in the end in single-player games Bosmer didn't have any edge against anyone in sneak. But so did everyone else. So, if it boils down to this, just remove sneaking bonus from the Khajiit and be done with this.

    @max_only @BlueRaven I finished the first comprehensive collection of arguments. This is what you can put on the front page/take and hand to ZOS and class reps and whoever you want to talk to.

    IF ANYONE STILL HAS ARGUMENTS THAT ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE COLLECTION, WRITE THEM DOWN FOR DISCUSSION!

    Wow That is great! Thanks!

    I am really hoping we get some early answers/relief on the 28th when the NDA drops. I would love to just simply enjoy the experience and not look around trying to find answers.

    I was just about to post my own.
    Taking stealth away from the Bosmer is like taking magic away from the Altmer, making Nords allergic to mead, or making Orcs pretty.

    @Cundu_Ertur Please don't feel discouraged to post your own. I'd like to see what others came up with and how you'd phrase it as well.
    This Bosmer was tortured to death. There is nothing left to be done.

    Now 42 pages in and the only response is "be nice"?

    see my post above about ZOS actually caring about player feedback.

    Like I said before, I wonder how many of the people they consulted actually PLAY Bosmers or do justice quests regularly?

    Issue would be focus on combat gameplay is after thought.

    I guess my issue is I'm experiencing combat gameplay when previously I could stealth by then? Not just in delves and overland, some of my justice marks fight back after all!

    This is certainly the impression I got from the race changes. Many appear to be very narrow focused to particular gameplay types and roles.

    Which matches perfectly with the goal to open up more choices.

    It certainly seems like it. Someone made an oopsie.

    124 upvotes and still completely ignored by ZOS. Classic.

    Because that's a pitiful amount. For every Bosmer complaining in this thread there might be thousands that don't even care about the stealth removal. And that's why ZOS doesn't care. The topic / problem is blown way out of proportion and its momentum died with the U21 PTS. This thread is kept alive by a handful of angry players/disappointed/sad players. That's about it.

    And talking about bad publicity because a dozen guys can't put this topic to rest? That's quite hilarious.
