About half or my once active 400 person guild has quit, not because they hate the game, but because we are a PvP guild but can't play. You wait in Q for 30 minutes, then blue screen and half the time get whacked out of Cyrodil...

I have amazing internet, it's not my system..
What gets me is
- you cut back graphics, I can't even see my allies AOE's anymore
- you modified CP to be more efficient
- you changed skills limiting CC"s and stuns
- you changed population

yet the game now runs worse than what it did two years ago. I'm rather heavily invested in this game and don't really feel like starting another one. I meet with the same friends every Friday and we've been playing for 4 years.... but this simply isn't working

ARE YOU EVEN AWARE? IS THIS SATISFACTORY?

    A pretty good description. Its astounding how absolutely every performance improvement so far has resulted in worse performance. Deer and other wildlife removed from Cyrodiil, AoEs hidden, population shrinking and nothing seems to make performance better, just worse after every single update.

    While I agree ZoS “Improvements” have been far from it blue screen is a hardware problem unless it’s like a memory leak. If the game crashes and the computer is still running it’s the game of the whole system clocks out it’s your computer.

    But with ZoS it could very well be their fault.

    Most likely a PS4 player. Our “blue screen” is a memory leak software error. We call it a blue screen because the game does a crash to desktop and the error message screen is blue.

    We have sadly had at least 5-6 recent threads on this. It’s not a PC Blue Screen of Death. It’s a memory leak plague exacerbated greatly by the Dragonhold DLC that Monday’s patch didn’t really fix for most of us.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno @ZOS_JessicaFolsom @ZOS_RichLambert can you say more than “we’re working on it”? The Monday patch did literally nothing. Pvp is complete chaos and every combat causes half my group to bluescreen.

    Pvp was so bad I came to do Pvp daily dungeons and I’ve been sitting in a Q for 30 min as a dps. THEN I got a healer friend to join and we have been waiting 45 min. That’s crazy. Game runs like trash and u keep releasing more 14k crown houses and furniture packs

    blue screens are so blue. the blue color is calm and peaceful. its often used to decorate offices because research has shown that people are more productive in blue rooms. do you know that blue is described as a favorite color by many people and is the color most preferred by men?

    One of them noted that they have fixes being tested. The asinine part about that is they're cheap *** and won't roll them out until later this month, leaving us to suffer even longer.

    They'll use the same excuse they always do- "oh Sony certification takes time...". Meanwhile my other games, after an update goes funk, gets updates rolled out 4 times in one week after bug reports...

    Please mention that you're talking about PS4. Because PC "shmaster race" keeps downplaying our issues

    Everything with this game on console just seems to be just wrong or broken. If this is PS4 it’s 100% the games fault
