Elder Scrolls Online’s Dragon Bones DLC is here, but the EU rollout hit a snag

We’ve updated below with the chronology of what’s up with the servers.

Elder Scrolls Online’s paid Dragon Bones DLC and free update 17 are live today on PC, at least if you’re on the North American server. Apparently the EU server hit a snag.

“During today’s Update 17 & Dragon Bones maintenance, we encountered a technical issue with the patch deployment on the European PC/Mac server,” ZeniMax writes. “Specifically, this is a server configuration issue that affects only the European server patch. Due to this issue, we are extending the maintenance on the European PC/Mac ESO server. We expect the extended downtime to last approximately 12 hours, and anticipate the European PC/Mac ESO server to open around 1am GMT on Feb. 13.” It does not appear at this time that any compensation will be doled out.

The content rollout includes the outfit customization system, new housing storage upgrades, and a pair of dungeons to boot. Check out our complete coverage of the patch from announcement to now, along with our playthrough of Dragon Bones with the ZeniMax team last week!

Update: The servers came up sooner than anticipated but are headed back down again to fix experience gain issues.

It’s quite amusing reading the official forum in relation to the further downtime which was due to an exp gain bug being exploited. People are actually keeping a straight face while trying to argue that they either never noticed that they were getting 20 champion points (1.9m exp) for killing a single group of mobs, or else didn’t realise it wasn’t normal. ZOS are auditing the data logs and hopefully the resulting bans will be permanent ones and not just silly 2 day suspensions.

So what happens if you’re just playing and you get a gazillion CPs, I mean why should I have to log out if the game’s bugged shouldn’t filing a ticket be enough?
Thankfully I wasn’t caught up in that but I can tell you my game time is valuable and bugs be damned I’m going to play, no reason to punish some one that just wants to play a game while their fuck up causes a ban right?

The way i look at it, the proper way to handle an exploit is to open up a ticket as soon as it’s discovered, explain in detail what’s going on, and carry on gaming with an expectation that you may lose some of the ill-gained CPs.

I mean, i don’t understand people who complain about the fact that they received something that didn’t belong to them. Nobody is expecting you to stop playing, but at the same time be aware that there may be rollback.
