    He didn't. It only became 3/10 for him when he burnt out.


    Nope, not burned out. Ask my friends I continued to try and give it a chance, I started port forwarding, I upgraded all my network equipment, I put the game on a M.2 970, I re-installed the game, I disabled all my addons, I even used VPNs, worked with my ISP as well.

    AFK in California I sit at 130 ping in a city, 200+ping in Cyrodiil. Its not burn out when the server declined after they tweaked with the net code to make the new "animation" system work, which broke a lot of the servers.

    I went from avg 120ish fps 65-85 ping to 120 fps, 120-130 ping+.

    It's sort of like cleaning your plate at dinner and then saying you didn't like it.
    You don't have to enjoy the taste of something to eat it.

    There's, you know, hunger. The requirement for basic sustenance. etc. etc.

    I've never been completely in love with ESO. On balance, for my tastes, it's just the best of what's available. 

    And ESO - like any online game - can change for worst. Drastically. With absolute disregard for the total number of hours you've played it.


    Hammer on the head, thank you.

    Was the best MMO on the market until the server bricked.

    6 years+ 2013 to now,  365 days is 2,190 days of possible playtime, so mines about 310 days total of play time, not too bad seeing as it was my only game and I love the game. I didn't even really play single player games... This was it.. The server smacked me.

    Server working easily 8/10, current state 3.5-4/10.

    Why? Well, it'd be nice if my abilities worked in a game while I'm like 4 states from the server.

    I think the funniest thing about the game's stability is that they had everyone redownload the entire game earlier this year(?) because they updated the client or something.....

    Yeah, we all had to redownload the game to save ~10GB or so of storage..And for people with their game on an SSD or M.2 it was almost 0 improvement to load times.

    To be fair though, people praise a game like Warframe and never talk about the game's lack of dedicated servers. I had to break my addiction to that game after doing a wave 100 and the host got disconnected causing us to lose all the loot we were gonna get upon completion. To make all of that worse is their reporting system which requires you to have multiple screenshots with timestamps of when the issue occurs just so people aren't 'gaming' the system. This did happen a couple of years ago but I'm not in a hurry to go back since they STILL don't have dedicated servers, yet have so much 'success,' but maybe tencent will change all of that if they buy them out....Moral of the story is, companies will always try to cut costs until there's a big enough backlash.

    I think I lasted about 20-25 hours and spent probably 80% of that running around trying to do the stupid quests. In my opinion, it was the worst of all the Elder Scrolls games except for Arena maybe.
