How to swap alliance at end of campaign?

So I disavowed the Alliance 1 (A1) when Faction Lock dropped, so I could play with a friend that freshly got the game and made two Alliance 2 (A2) toons.

However, I want to swap back.

When I tried at the end of last camp it told me I was still locked in.

Do I need to abandon all campaigns before they end, forfeiting my rewards? or can you do it afterwards?

I think I read somewhere if you have a A2 toon logged into cyro on that camp still it will be locked.

So can I just make sure all my A2 toons are out of cyro when it ends, log in, abandon and I should be able to lock in as A1?
We may be down but we will never be out.

    Yes this bug or lack of software design benched 6 of my toons since I could not swap from EP to DC. Thanks

    OK SO HOW THE *** DO I SWAP ALLIANCE? I NEED TO WAIT FOR MY FACTION TO BE POP LOCKED BEFORE I CAN LOG IN ON MY TOONS TO DROP OUT OF CYRO? YOU EXPECT ME TO WAIT UNTIL PRIME TIME?

    If you didn't leave Cyro before the camp ended, yes, you have to wait until there's a queue before logging into any of those characters.

    You'll also have to pay 100k AP per character. :/

    Had no issue this time around.

    All my F1 chars were not in cyrodil when Campaign reset, abandoned on all those characters, locked in on F2.

    I like these penalties in any form for players. My personal favorite is the battlegrounds deserter penalty, it's definitely the most fun to crash just before the end of the match so as much as possible time is wasted. Rewards are also great for the forced quitters: 1 free restart and ever fun loading screens, 20 minutes deserter penalty when unable to play bg or receive ap at all even from Cyrodiil, missed ap and xp from the match. Just remember when you must pay some penalty fee, it means you have done something wrong. Sadly I haven't been able to enjoy these great features since my account has been completely stuck for over 4 months now, perhaps I need somekind on penalty...

    I was still locked to a campaign despite not being in Cyrodiil because I had it declared as a Home campaign for one of my characters.

    I needed to abandon that campaign before the start of the next campaign before I could enter it on a different alliance.

    You don't have to abandon it before the next one starts. It will say you're locked but if you log into the character and abandon it the lock is removed.

    I'm a bit confused. I played on ep last campaign, and it reset after i logged off last night.

    I was planning on just logging into an ad character first today, and locking on him...are you saying since i didn't leave cyro before logging off, im still going to be locked to ep?

    Wtf

    You get 5 minutes to leave Cyrodil if you don't want to be locked into that alliance now

    Props to ZOS for actually listening to the player base and addressing this.

    That's because your home campaign stays set to home unless you change it by paying the AP or set it to leave at the end of the campaign.

    Home campaigns never reset on their own unless you tell them to or ZOS releases all the characters to rehome, as they did with the swap from the Morrowind campaigns to Elsweyr.

    You used to be able to reset home campaigns for free if your current home campaign ended and you haven't entered Cyrodiil yet in your current home. Let's be clear. I have not entered any campaign, whatsoever, in over 3 months. All I do now is BGs and IC. All characters still have to pay 150k to switch home campaign to 30day..

    Don't try to abandon a campaign, try to home a new campaign. When you home a new campaign, you get the option to switch now and pay, or switch when the campaign ends for free.
