Can anyone explain me why it takes the support so long to send an automated response e-mail?

Take a look at this... Clearly no human has read my ticket, yet it took ages to get this response.

Is ZOS strategy honestly to discourage players writing tickets this way?

    You can’t wait on a ticket after the first canned response. Be sure to follow up ... promptly but politely. That’s just the way it works.

    Another option is to post your ticket number in the General Help forums. (Maybe a forums mod can move this thread to General Help).

    I do know that this is the way it always is. However I would like to know why it is this way.

    There are two options: Either
    - a human read my ticket and decided to send this generic response that clearly doesn't help me or
    - a computer script selected a fitting generic response.

    In the first case I don't get why he would do it as it clearly doesn't help me and I specificly stated in my ticket to not send me a automated response.
    In the second case I don't get why it took so long.

    Which leads me to my starting question: Why?

    Sometimes you're lucky if you get a response or if they actually read what your issue is.

    Probably they outsourced the tier 1 support, but my cases got all resolved so far. I cannot complain.

    Just take habit of logging out of somewhere else than Cryo until they fix it. Its not a crown store related problem so you can not expect prompt solution.

    Actually I got a similar issue responded to within a day. Reply to the first response and you should get an actual person. Its annoying but it's how it is.

    All my customer service interactions have been both helpful and pleasant.

    I've made many complaints about this company and this game, I'm as far from a white knight as can possibly be, but in this area I have had no complaints.

    It's as simple as responding to the first generic e-mail they send you. It's slightly annoying, sure, but it is what it is.
