    Remove all proc sets for a weekend.
    I know it was posted that it had no effect on the servers but It breathed life into PVP like crazy for that month that it happened.

    I would bow out because I very much dislike the no proc way.

    But plainly now its half a year and nothing has happened so I think we can take it as read that nothing will ever happen with this. We were just being teased and I find that bordering on disrespectful.

    LOL Not where I play it isn't. But back to topic, Does anyone really think thies PVP events will happen? I don't like to be a downer, but I'm pretty sure nothing will happen.

    Why not organize our own PVP events and content through reddit, and guild discords?

    -Tel-Var "arena" clubs in obscure sections of the sewers. Go in with a team of 3 with 1k tel var each and fight 3 people of another faction. Waiting participants can provide security during fights
    -Duel Paloozas in scenic areas where audiences/waiting participants can bet gold on winners
    -Pick a day, and challenge everyone you see that day to a duel. wind up heavies on them until they accept or log out/fast travel
    -Anything that encourages Foitin' and naturally generates a prize through participation

    Guilds know guilds, and anyone can post on reddit. It's possible, just not as "my idea".

    I think people are doing that and that's great. The point is that ZOS insinuated they would do this and have basically ignored the elephant in the room since the damage control was done. I don't think its wrong to remind them we pay attention to their words.

    Wonderful :) Thank you for the update. The BG folks are looking forward to some fresh challenges. I'm interested to see what things are in store for Cyrodil.

    Hopefully it won't be another half a year for the next update.

    Hi everyone,

    While all the aforementioned backend work is still ongoing, including sourcing the new hardware for PC EU and console megaservers, we did want to share a couple changes coming to PvP that will be going into Update 35.

    First, we’re implementing some tech that will allow us to easily activate special Battleground weekends, without requiring any server downtime to start or stop. The plan will be to feature a single game mode over several days and also grant 25% increased AP while participating.

    Outside of these recurring Battleground features, we’re also planning to increase the amount of XP you can earn doing various types of PvP activities within Cyrodiil and Imperial City including killing monsters and other player characters, or completing quests in these areas.

    We look forward to testing everything out in the next PTS cycle so we can officially kick these off once Update 35 launches.

    I haven't had a sub-50 character in years but I know that those folks who want to stay in that campaign are typically wary of receiving XP boosts while in Cyrodiil and hitting level 50.

    25% AP and extra EXP are barely anything. This is not what PVPers were waiting 6 months to hear.

    truth is - my expectations for any new pvp content are relatively non-existent...actually, after the introduction of the hammer a couple of years ago, maybe it's for the best (although i did like the lancers)...

    glad to hear you all are working on improving the equipment :)

    hopefully one of these days: Lag and Stuck in Combat become things of the past...

    I guess its neat to encourage people who dislike or are afraid of PvP to get into it, but most long-term players have at least 1 grand overlords worth of AP, so this really isnt a motivator for alot of the PvPers unless you give us options to spend our currency on. :)

    New PvP content when?
    Better cyro performance when?

    Amazing ! People find a way to actually complain about this, but it's already a big step in the good direction.

    It's a step in the right direction but nothing spectacular. Just applying MYM ap bonus for the entire duration of time it takes to get PVP in a proper state would've been a way better update by a long shot. Cause MYM bonus grants XP and ap at the same time, and way more from PVP. We were expecting something like changes like maybe no hammer rules in cyrodiil, maybe actual queueable game modes.

    Something that's better than a budget midyear mayhem bonus lol...

    They can still "redeem" themselves by awarding a mount and a pet or something. That's just more of the same though. BGs with CP or no proc sets won't cut it either.

    They aren't giving us new content, just turning up the dial a notch or two. It's more, more of the same lol.

    It's an update saying that nothing has been implemented yet and that we are still waiting.

    And yes the 'gift' is in actual fact just more 'lag creation' why we wait. It makes literally no sense.

    (No bash, just discussing the gifted solution)
