Elder Scrolls Online’s veteran ranks are going bye bye

    
89

Elder Scrolls Online creative director Rich Lambert made a post on the game’s official forum recently that should lead to much rejoicing. Unless you like eternal grinding, of course. Lambert says that the much-reviled veteran rank system is on the chopping block, though ZeniMax is “still working on the system — nothing is finalized (which is why we’re not really talking much about it yet).”

In a nutshell, dinging 50 will move your progression directly to champion points instead of the current VR levels. If you have veteran ranks when the change occurs, they will be converted to champion points on your highest level character. Lambert says that while the design is still in flux, a rough estimate is 10 champion points for every veteran rank, so 160 CP will equal VR16.

Bluetouchpaper Yeah the leveling in other factions zones while unable to see them was one of the more poorly conceptualized game design decisions ever.

jnewington I fell for this once already, when they went B2P there was talk of removing VR, I really do enjoy the game so I paid for a month sub and jumped back in so I could get right back to playing… about a month later the VR cap was raised in new content and I realized I was done with the game at least until there was some official change with regard to the grind system.  I might check it out once folks have tried out the game without VR, but until then I’ll pass.

jnewington I agree, after this long it seems like they are lost at how to proceed. This game could have been the one to kick WoW butt! I wish they could put someone in charge with a clear plan that could fix everything. They have the worse PR team I ever seen. ESO Live is a complete waste without really answering the hard questions.

One thing I have seen so far is right after my post on official forums where I named names and explain what they are all doing wrong and banned for that post. They have finally started communicating more (still not answering the hard questions) Lambert made a thread on forums an extended Ask Us Anything last ESO Live. So at least my ban wasn’t for nothing. 

Don’t get me wrong, ESOTU could still become what I believe the WoW killer or at least on the same scale it was when it first hit. But Zenimax needs to change how they do PR. Someone better to deal with the VR removal and a better plan going forward. 

Sad part is am banned on forums and I still want the game to really make it to where I believe it should be. But the real sad part is what I and a few others had to do to get them to finally open up and at least take a different approach to dealing with customers. 

No am not patting myself on the back as the one to get them to change how they deal with customers. There are a few of us that have been banned on their forums and everyone of us loved the game but hated the way we were treated and direction of the game. I would post the names but that wouldn’t be right for me to do it only they should.

So ending with hope the company does become better at treating players and a better direction.

BigM!

A sub is the worse way to enioy a game because it locks you out if you do not pay. Its always the best option to have box price + extras

They did what? Since before open beta? 
They anounced it maybe September 2014(!!!) it is a year old not two years…
The game war released 2014 not 2013…
