The natives are getting restless

Windows 10 broke my pc -twice-

First time it COMPLETELY deleted my registry, which, anyone can imagine, ruined my pc and I had to fresh install -everything-

Second time it actually fried my hard drive for some unbeknownst reason to me.

Im sticking to 7 until its dying breath.

But this is what happens when devs ignore the community for years and feed them bones instead of meat in terms of content for years as well. I enjoyed KOTFE and KOTET, even with their ridiculous ability delay, but these expacs are not enough to keep the natives content. Not even remotely. And then there was Galactic Command, the WORST SYSTEM IN THE HISTORY OF GEARING SYSTEMS. With Irving it was just misstep after misstep after mistake after failure. I have high hopes for Keith , but some people are just not as patient as I am.And I am INCREDIBLY impatient.

Yeah.

Command Crates are a double-whammy of bad gearing design. 1) Locked behind an interminable grind, the likes of which are normally only seen in Korean Grind-Fest games, and then 2) some of the worst RNG loot tables this game has ever seen.

Either one of those was going to be bad for the game, both together was always going to be a disaster - such a disaster someone, somewhere felt Irving needed to be "moved on", and quite frankly, not before time.

If, over the next few months, something can be done to a) give players a clearly defined, and controllable, route to the gear they need for whatever level of end-game content they choose to access, and b) meaningful content (as in where players decide the course of their actions, not pre scripted cutscenes we have no significant input in) can be delivered the new LP will have started to undo much of the damage inflicted on this game by Mr Irving over the last few years.

All The Best

I have high hopes for Keith as well. I actually started playing the game partly because of him. I was happy to come back to the game a few months back and give it another chance, but this system that Ben Irving created is plain stupid and horrible.

My sub ends in July. I'm sure Keith will have the roadmap posted much before then, but in the event that does not happen and GC/UC gearing exists, I will never sub back to the game as long as it exists and PvP'ers are forced to have to grind endlessly to reach BiS. It's not exciting at all, and I'm not gonna PvE just to gear faster either.

In fairness to ESO if they are nerfing people across the board this is not necessarily a bad thing, it stops for power escalation and making a massive divide between the player base so that new content is either impossible for starting players or so easy for vets that they don't get any enjoyment from it.

As for VMA that is rng and people hate it, can't defend that bad decision. However there are plenty of avenues to get decent gear if you decide it just isn't worth it. It would be like having a crafting system offering BIS gear in ToR which is open to everyone if you spend the time and skill points and then having ops offer one tier up weapons that is tied to RnG. Its not ideal but VMA is not the end game gear progression system its part of it and can be avoided.

On the plus side ESO did a patch and put a prelude quest in for the up coming expansion, now this was just sound marketing it gets people interested and looking to continue the story. Far more than a Vaylin based trailer (though yes they did a CGI trailer as well). What was nice is that because everyone knows its a teaser and only 2 hours long at most you take your time read the journal entry etc.

But it just gives something to do to stop the natives getting restless and moving on.
