    Why doesn't this update preview mention the enormous change of only allowing BGs to be solo queue? Regardless of how you feel about this change (I hate it, as it means several of my friends I just got to play will likely leave), it is worth a discussion and if ZOS is right that it is a major thing the community wants, advertising it in the preview will likely garner some big attention from folks, perhaps drawing back players that may have quit.

    Edit: Other than that, excited to see performance changes and I liked the full year story so I am looking forward to Skyrim this year!

    to the Developers/story writer: feedback regarding the prelude quest so far, on the PTS. The dialogue from the very beginning is repetitive and way too basic. Worst prelude dialogue I've ever had in ESO and I've been playing since Beta. The dialogue/questions that are provided for our chars to ask Lyris are so basic as to make it seem like our character is thickheaded. I was left feeling like not only was my character a complete idiot, but that any moment Lyris would cut my char down out of frustration for asking so many stupid & basic questions.

    Come on, your writers are better than this. The way Lyris responds with annoyance over being asked repetitive stupid questions means you know you've written stupid questions for players to ask because you've built it into Lyris' response. So why do that in the first place. Even brand new players to the game would recognize pretty quickly how lame the dialogue is and likely decide not to go much further based on the prelude quest alone. Do better!

    Please fix this and pretend for a moment that your players wouldn't ask such stupid questions over and over.
