PvP Improvements ESO Needs in 2019

It ain’t no secret that PvP, especially Cyrodiil, is in dire need of attention in Elder Scrolls Online. Cyrodiil is plagued with performance issues and desperately needs some quality of life improvements. Here’s my list of the major PvP related things that needs fixing. Lag and Performance This is obviously the biggest issue plaguing Cyrodiil right now. Abilities taking five seconds to go off, not being able to swap bars, rubberbanding, texture bugs and just lag in general. All of these issues seem to get worse after each update and it affects everyone to some extent regardless of how good …

A Look Back at 2018 – SWTOR Edition

The expansion drought continues for The Old Republic. It’s been over two years since 5.0 came out. 2018 gave us a few Updates with some story, some PvP and even some Operations content. I haven’t really made much of a secret of the fact I haven’t played SWTOR that much throughout 2018. I dabbled in the game here and there around Game Updates and did a fair bit of PTS testing for Game Update 5.9.2. But beyond that, I haven’t really done much throughout 2018. The game overall continues to be marred by a horrible gearing system (especially for PvP) …

Looking Back on 2018 – ESO Edition

Elder Scrolls Online had a massive 2018. With quarterly content release cycles, there was always something to look forward to! I started out the year mainly doing solo stuff then the last few months getting full-on into PvP. The content released was fantastic! Both the Summerset and Murkmire stories were excellent! The environments of both the new zones were incredible. I’m continually blown away by the beauty and detail of this game. The new houses released this year were incredible. The Princely Dawnlight Palace and the Enchanted Snow Globe Home were particularly amazing. However, it’s very disappointing that they still …

Zerging 101 – The Joys and Pitfalls of the Zerg Machine

It’s been a tumultuous few weeks for me since I joined a Zerg Guild. But honestly, I’ve never had so much fun PvPing in my entire life. For the uninitiated, let me explain what a Zerg is. Basically, it is a large coordinated group of people working together in a PvP environment usually following the instructions of a single leader (or in our case, usually two). Zerg compositions and the number of people involved may vary but the result is the same, total carnage in their wake. And let me tell you, it’s exhilarating! There’s nothing like being part of …

I haven’t exactly made it a secret that I’m not playing Star Wars The Old Republic much anymore. There was a time where I balanced my time between Elder Scrolls Online and SWTOR.

But in the meantime, here are the key things that made me switch to ESO. Large Scale Open World PvP ESO delivers exhilarating PvP on a scale that SWTOR will never be able to. SWTOR’s antiquated engine simply cannot …
