    Why not PC? Also, that bundle is incredibly underwhelming, we get a mount, fine, then a bunch of stuff that we get anyway from daily login rewards, and some riding lessons that I don't need since all my characters are already maxed. But maybe it isn't available to PC players anyway...

    Maybe most people are spending on holiday stuff at this time and so ZOS hasn’t found it the best time to have a huge sale? Anyway, precedent would have preserved you from much disappointment as this has been typical of Black Fredas sales since I started in 2019, with the addition I think of assistants also being on sale in years past. I am curious to see what the mount looks like in game, as well as the price.

    The sale is aimed directly away from PC customers. Why is that?

    Hey all! Just want to follow up on questions regarding PC sales. Just a friendly reminder that sales dates are not always 100% lined up across platforms. Please keep an eye on the official ESO website and social channels for details.

    So there will be a 67% Blackwood Sale for PC in the near future?
    Last sale was for all platforms from September 30-October 12 (13 for Stadia).

    Pc being neglected for once. Lol

    The fredas bundle is a new mount each year plus the other rubbish always.

    We used to get crown pack discounts and various other crown store offers back in the day.

    Guess enough people will spend enough at non sale prices to not need to offer the sales discounts anymore.

    Not lined up isn't the same as "not offered at this time".

    This is the latter.

    I think what he means is that the announcement was for partners (XBox, Playstation, Steam, Stadia) not for in-house Bethesda store stuff, which has yet to be announced and may have different dates.
    Never stop and ask a Miregaunt for directions...

    Kinda thinking its a tactical delay. Pc servers crumbling under load. Delay influx of more players etc with a later sale.

    Hopefully in a bid to stabilise the servers?

    As a console player we are always led to believe that pc requires very little notice of anything to go live and consoles need pre validation and approval which has lead times.

    Yeah, and the same goes for sales in non-Bethesda stores, which are probably things they negotiate well in advance. I seem to remember one time when one of the Sony divisions decided not to do the sale at the same time as everyone else, for whatever reason.

    Probably summerset ish. Was that the big eso buggy mess on ps4? Sony did add longer validations after that i think.

    So eso prolly asks all platforms at the sane time. Just sony took longer to reply in essence.

    As ssid below black friday not here yet so if pc can drop a sale closer they may well do so.

    There was no confusion about the dates for PC players, there was a confusion if we were included at all since there is mention of every platform except PC in the article.

    I'm sorry. What am I missing here. Is it starting on November 24, which is Wednesday, Or Thursday the 25th? Or am I in a different dimension?

    You are right, that is an error. It should say Wednesday, Nov. 24. We will update shortly. Thanks for catching that!

    Just wanted to update that PC/Mac sales are now added. PC was included, the date was just different, hence the later announcement.

    Nice. But you may want to put it in the launcher and the original article. Or better yet, set up a new one. Can only see it in the store.

    Can also someone explain to me why it wasn't stated in the article from the very start that the PC sale is from date X to date Y? Would have prevented some angry costumers.

    @Chilly-McFreeze We'll check on the launcher, but the article should be updated now.

    As for what it wasn't stated earlier, there are some specific rules and regulations regarding timing that can impact when sales can be shown and talked about. That's about the best answer we can give. The point isn't to have anyone angry. There is just a process that needs to be followed.
