Current RASH in Cyrodiil

A rash has taken over Cyrodiil. It pushes opposing players to their gates. It causes players to log off in disappointment. What causes this game-killing behavior is the needy ego of one or a few players that can't live without the constant approval of strangers at the cost of killing the enjoyment and the pvp aspect of the GAME. This is on a Monday afternoon CST. Well done!

    So you took that pic after AD got Black Boot back? ;)

    Yes it was pretty brutal in the afternoon. But DC gave up those scrolls pretty quickly when prime time came around. I was surprised how much AD was hitting EP in the evening though; a daycap for sure deserves orange/green/purple team in the evening.

    DC doesn't want to finish last again. LOL. They are kind of weak when the masses are logged on though. EP has ran away with this campaign but the race for 2nd is getting tighter.

    In the old days of non-faction locking, I see a map like that, I'd be thinking... now, which of my red/yellow characters need some PvP practice, and I could be pretty certain in short order I'd find a few other players who'd obviously thought the same way. These days, I log in on my "locked" blue, see something like that, and log off again.

    But yes, gate camping, in the absence of a tight campaign score, is the act of dullards and cretins. It completely kills the game. And I sincerely hope that you guys remember this when it's your faction doing it (and it will happen), and not succumb to that pesky amnesia....

    IT doesnt help that they do it on off hours -all the time -

    To be fair EP got a commanding lead in the first few days by daycapping not dissimilar to the DC map above.

    WOW. You mean faction lock in fact did nothing to help balance campaigns? What a gosh darn shock.

    Faction lock was meant to curb the trolling. If you want a balanced campaign, ZOS would have to take away the choice to pick which alliance you play in. Do you really want that?

    And how did that workout? I've seen 4 scroll trolls this camp, that I've noticed..From what I've seen lock has done absolutely nothing

    Other than get me to delete any character not on my main alliance so that I can play all classes still

    Pretty sure the person that you are repling to means matchmaking. Meaning you que up for cyro like you do for BGs and the game decides which side you go on.

    DC has always done that on NA, never understood why they complain when it finally happens to them

    No, you just removed posts that protested your fantastic faction lock idea, in addition to ones that named a particular player. The player naming I get, but the posts that simply said that trolling still occurred with faction lock? You just plain censored them.

    Way to listen to your player base. Way to censor criticism.

    Also, the naming thing. I just changed my mind. It is constructive to talk about how a single player can cause the above map. If someone actively gates and creates a toxic environment for a lot of players, it should be discussed. I’ll grant that some of the posts weren’t constructive, but it is definitely worth the community to discuss how it affects them.

    I didnt realise I couldnt talk about streamers :/

    Many of the players that screamed for lock wanted another place for them to run the map over with no resistance. Though they will never admit it, the results speak for themselves.

    The funny part is... a lot of us told them this would happen, and got howled at, berated, even called cheaters! And here we are. What has happened is exactly what was predicted. I don't even bother looking at PvP during the week now, because, as an aussie, my peak time is your off peak time, and the map looked like a variant of that every. single. night after faction lock.

    So, one less person for PvP during the week. GJDM.

    Not at all a "Rash"! I planned it and executed it to make a point. You will find my response, in the proper location for this thread.

    This thread is funny, as if this has anything to do with faction lock. Locked or unlocked you have map caping if there is no resistance.

    The point is, as people keep having to repeat, is that now once this happens, the map doesn't move, because people can't log on to another character, so they end up gate camping and killing PvP for an hour min. Usually longer. Hell, we've had folk so bored that they have hit home keeps, and have broken literally every single door/wall in the keep before flipping it, and then leaving them completely unrepaired.

    Seemed pretty close across both active servers on PC EU. Maybe its a mentality thing.

    Well, gee, that's really great, I'm glad one campaign on the games most potato server that I don't even play on was close, thank you for telling me that like it's some great news that totally justifies faction locks.

    There are only 2 campaigns worth noting in PC EU, so yeah, it is pretty telling that both campaigns, which are locked 6 hours of the day were almost within 1000 pts of each other, despite morning and night capping. Even when people change factions at campaign end it all evens out mostly towards the end. And its not our fault a that ZoS treats our server like the unwanted step child. Ironically our potential player pool is almost double the size of the US, and they still treat us like garbage shooting themselves in the foot.
