    Well, if it is about 70% of PVP players will soon be banned. Wait, that is the solution to Cyrodil lag. Remove the player base! J.K.

    On Xbox I noticed a de-sync where I’d crouch but not pop back up when trying to t-bag.

    Very upsetting but probably for the best. I’m only like a B+ PvPer so I have no business doing it regularly.

    She replied to you, and you alone, instead of just addressing the issue in the thread? And at 01:36 am?

    I call fake.

    Before people actually believe you.
    01:36 am is because I live in europe and she did answer me, that reply is 100% real

    I still don't believe it.

    Could be fake. But they did a slick job painting it, because the wording and everything sounds exactly like something she would say.

    I would be curious to know if it was real or not, though. Because sometimes I have players stalk me in Cyrodil. I literally had one player who did nothing but follow me around for hours making things difficult for me. And I had no idea going out of your way to target specific people was against the rules. So I might could whisper them that post to get them to back off. haha

    Why do you think I'd take the time to write myself a discord message with a fake account 13 days before this post is opened at 1:36am?

    There was another long thread about this that was locked.

    Thank you!

    Its great to get the acknowledgement that ZOS understands that players are going to die again and again in PVP without it being griefing.
    This, even the same players, say you take an resource, an small group of enemies come from the keep to take it back, you kill them, they rez at keep and come back, same outcome :)

    Grinding just make you go in circles.
    Asking ZoS for nerfs is as stupid as asking for close air support from the death star.

    It would be less of an issue if PVP wasn't limited to a zone. I'd like to see the 3 factions split to the point that if I went into an enemy faction I would be flagged. If it was world wide in eso it would be harder to grief someone... Or I should say, it would be harder to get away with griefing but that's half the fun. Best pvp memories for me were ghost running through stormwind on my warlock with 2 rogues and summoning my entire guild. Or that time I gnomish mind controlled that dwarven pally that was 30 levels higher than me was great too.... Oh different game...

    But honestly, the purple faction should be crippled.

    There isn't any faction loyalty... I want to love to hate my enemies again! FOR THE HORDE!

    This is not WoW. And such a change should definitely be optional, because a lot of people like doing content in all zones.

    How cool would that server be? I would be all over it.

    Yeah, I'm sure all 34 of you would have a grand old time on an unrestricted PvP server, but I have a hard time imagining why ZOS would spend the resources for a game mode that would be less populated than a Chuck E. Cheese on a tuesday morning.

    as Gina wrote, it depends on the context.

    This is very diplomatic, as you have to take in account factors beyond ZOS influence, like playing on xbox live.

    Here is an example, where someone (different game) was banned not by the gamepublisher, but by Microsoft.

    This confirms suggestions I had read before, that the best adress to report it, is not the ESO Support, but the xbox live support.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/battlefield_one/comments/6xrvty/i_got_banned_for_teabagging/

    So Microsoft plans to acquire a studio that seemingly just officially endorsed an in-game behavior for which Microsoft issues bans?

    It's the in-game equivalent of a kid putting his/her thumb to his or her nose and wiggling the four remaining fingers. I simply can't fathom why anyone would get upset with this.

    I see it as an in-game demonstration that someone is an immature little waste of oxygen. (as well as a clear example why people think pvp is a steaming pit of scum, to be avoided. As well as yet another sign that humanity in general may have been a mistake) And I simply can't fathom why anyone would want to do it.


    But, then, I don't understand why any of the idiotic "macho" bull**** in any kind of sports & competition (like trash-talking) is accepted or seen as a positive thing.

    the reason for t-bag is the same reason football players do a small dance at the touchdown.
    "its to celebrate i did a good job even tho all the insults and people claimed i could not"
    "its a victory dance showing and pride that i won even though i was told i was garbage"

    but now that we have Proof that this is something bannable worthy i will never do it again, and i will not report anyone that does it to me.

    That was my original point.... If it were "open world" it should be easier on their servers.

    Butt... If I could level from 1 to 810 in one of the 3 and still get everything I needed as well (instead of 1/3rd soulshard each time one is found, you would get a full soulshard) then we can trash those guild traders while we were at it and put a global auction that would actually improve the market seeing as sets would only drop on specific areas... And heck... While we are at it lets do away with the 5 guilds that everyone seems to think is a great thing...
    One guild.
    One alliance.
    One trader.
    Come on man,
    let's make Tamriel great again!

    Actually, while I'm a staunch opponent of that behaviour, I might be happy with a middle ground of sorts ...

    Make the behaviour risky. Implement an item (make it expensive/hard to get so it's uncommon) that detect when a player does a teabag over your corpse. Then, it explode, killing the player in question and taking an item at random in his inventory.

    Teabag if you want, but eventually, suffer the consequences.

    ZoS doesn't officially endorse anything in private Discord conversations. If any employee did, they would probably be strongly reprimanded, if not fired. Any official ruling would be announced officially.

    This is fake.
