Hi everyone, i am a pretty experienced PVP player now on NA server in Grey Host.
I am finding more than ever the toxicity of PVP becoming worse, and i underwhelmed by Developer response (or lack of response) to what i would consider to be the fairness of the game and the spirit of play.
Firstly i woudl like to address some actions straight outlawed in the game.
1) Logging onto an alt toon and stealing Volundrung and handing to your own faction, or scrolls from your opposing team.
2) Creating a truce with another faction. (teaming is killing this game in my opinion)
3) Logging onto an alt toon and turning seige around.
4) any other action that is not considered within the spirit fo the goal of the game. (commnity feel free to reply with other tactics and gameplay that should be outlawed)
Can i ask, do developers actually login to the game to monitor this behaviour? Is this acceptable to them? Can we ask for a clear statement about this so that we can report banned behaviour?
As far as popluation imbalance.
Do the population meters work, and if so how do they work? How accurate and timely are they? Why after the end of a campaign arent populations and hours played by factions recorded with the campaign results. The movements of players across factions to the winning faction should be addressed as well? Can the developers issue some kind of statement about how they feel about the state of play in Cyrodiil, their concerns and what they are doing about it? IF the developers will not post campaign population, why on earth not? What benefit is this is NOT posting populations?
It is clear that player behaviour does NOT seek fairness and balance in these campaigns, and ZOS shoudl be doing something more about this in my view.
Map - can we ask for some new maps or can we turn the direction of the gates around? Seems as if there are some strategic benefits to factions like the one way Nikel Gate for example.
I also wonder what it would be like just to have a two faction war. There would be no teaming for sure and perhaps less faction swapping. If a map gets run over by one faction, there is also no argument about population and developers ability to moderate this behaviour.
I am personally tired of being run over my two factions at the same time simultaneously and teamed, and i do NOT like when our population steam rolls another group either. I don't think that is what is intended.
Will we actually get developers in PVP proactively looking to balance out gameplay and be more active and getting rid of bad behaviour?
Guys, i have written this to create conversation about making the game fair and balanced again and it is not an invitation to attack or critcise me. I would love the community and developers start to be proactive in positive contribution to the game and changes for everyone's benefit.
