Worst state of PVP in a long time

The current state of PVP is the laggiest, most unplayable thing I have seen in a long time. ZOS has been hyperfocused on rebalancing classes, gear, and skills; I say it's time to close the book on rebalancing for a bit and get focused on making PVP playable. I realize this has been said a million times already. It only serves to remind us to keep asking and hope that eventually something gets done. This game will be around for a long time to come, I don't want the next 5 years of ESO to stay this way.

    Game probably won't stay like this, but will most likely go even worse overall in the future. Next year after the new chapter arrives, there will be some players again telling how they didn't have any problems before, on times like now after Elsweyr came. This goes on year after year while Zenimax claims the performance is some priority and they are working on it. Many players are still playing and forum is active even very negative for a reason often. Zenimax is doing very well with selling the premium lag for players, must admit I kind of respect that at this point. Would you be interested in buying some high quality zenilag perhaps?

    Cyrodiil -50 people on each Alliance is a death sentence for the server. Not even trying to “doom and gloom”


    I’ve played 6 hours or so a day since launch. More on the weekends.

    I see the same 30 people daily on all alliances. Get zerged by the same people everyday.

    This game on PS4 Cyrodiil will be done. It’s sad too.

    This is currently my biggest issue with the game. It's ALWAYS the same people/players/zergs. Boring as hell lol

    I wish they would at least fix stuck in combat so we could lag on our horses.

    I even know the names of peoples alts. Its bad but with that being said is it bcz the same 30 people do nothing else but pvp endlessly and chased off anybody else or is pvp (on ps4) just the worst.

    Seems like a lot of people are trying to show how bad faction lock is by stacking one alliance.

    Companies today aren't humble enough to go out and apologize, instead find ways to go around and/or completely cover messes like this one.

    And with all due respect, ZOS is on the top list on that one, don't expect things to get better before they get worse on this ride I'm afraid.

    I totally agree.

    Faction lock has nothing to do with performance, no point associating one with another.
    Performance has indeed gotten worse, it just happens to coincide with faction locking.

    Rams are broken AF - doing whatever the hell they want.
    Whole groups of people are stuck in combat for tens of minutes at a time.
    Skills are greying out and unusable regularly.
    Lag is just off-the scale ridiculous.
    A bug not allowing you to enter a door in sneak has entered the game - un-acknowledged by the development team - and has now stayed as another ZOS 'feature'. How they can not even speak about this is beyond embarrassing and just goes to further highlight their complacency with bugs and faults.
    Seemingly random load screens mid-fight are now business as usual.
    Volundrung spawning on factions with emp (wasn't this supposed to be impossible??)
    Keeps upgrading / downgrading causing graphics errors.
    Players glitching into the ground and still being able to do damage.
    Players 'flying' around Cyrodiil and glitching into keeps.
    I'm sure there's plenty others that I have forgotten, this wouldn't fly in PVE and it's shameful that they let it continue to happen in PVP.

    Just join EP PC EU.
    You'll never walk alone as they take the whole faction everywhere as one huge ball.
    You don't even need to pvp

    This..

    Just like to add...As has been said before many..many time's.. PvP not a money maker so not a priority, sad but true. Seen the same thing happen in previous games I invested a lot of time in, so no big surprize to me. Frustrating though all the same. This was the best game of all time for me PvP wise along with DC Universe and I been gaming for a very long time.

    I still holding out hope they will be bothered to fix these problems so we can all go back to having fun.

    Not sure if you guys watched Quakecon this year, but they talked about performance and lag issues. They're actually addressing it in q4 this year or q1 next year, I can't remember the exact quarter. From my understanding, they're completely redoing the foundation the game was built upon to gain better performance. It such a large overhaul that we will all have to redownload the entire game.

    If you didn't watch it, I would highly recommend searching for it and spending an hour to listen to the interview.
