Elder Scrolls Online is handing out 100K gold for perfect attendance in September

    
28
This coming fall is shaping up to be an unusual period for The Elder Scrolls Online. Toward the beginning of August, ZeniMax hinted that it’s plotting big changes to the way the game’s optional subscription works, with a significantly increased chunk of crowns (1650) for subbers along with a freebie monthly item too. At the time, it was telling players to “watch for more details this fall.”

It now appears that’s not the only thing changing, as the daily rewards are getting a huge – their words are “massive” and “colossal,” which actually seems fair – boost.

“Since Daily Rewards were introduced with Update 18, you’ve been able to acquire useful consumables, currencies, Crown Crates, and even pets, but during the month of September, we’re giving you a massive amount of gold, too. If you log in for 28 of September’s 30 days, you’ll earn a colossal 100,000 gold. This is the most gold you’ve ever been able to receive for a single activity in the game (aside from Guild Trader sales, of course), and it has the potential to dramatically change your in-game fortunes!”

That’s kind of a nice chunk of change for just clicking a button and showing up. The list includes a cosmetic outfit too, all for logging in. Not too shabby, yeah?

How very different from $$G…

Having read the LotRO article, now reading this, the difference couldn’t be bigger. Shame on you $$G! Learn a thing or two on how to appease your clientele.

It just goes to show that marketing doesn’t have to cost anything to be effective. Lots of people are talking about this initiative and some are talking about returning to the game because of it. The reward system is all in place, all ZOS have to do is insert one extra item that doesn’t cost them anything. Good move!

I’ll earn money I won’t know what to use for, fantastic. But then again I don’t log in every day, due to laziness even though nothing is stopping me so I might miss out on this.

I could finally get that Sorrel Horse I’ve never been able to afford.

I’m not the most dedicated player of ESO, but 100k gold doesn’t seem like a big deal to me? I can make 1.2k a day doing the crafting dailies, and those also net me a boatload of crafting XP and mats.

I’m not sure what behavior daily login rewards are intended to encourage. Usually I log in, grab the reward, and immediately log out – half the time, after chucking whatever I received, because it’s not useful to my playstyle. That’s what I do in LotRO and ESO, and used to do Neverwinter. Is my behavior atypical?

It’s not all that hard to earn 100,000 in gold in ESO, but I’ll take it. I’m enjoying these extra rewards.

…. now back to liberating objects from the tyranny of being trapped in boxes, barrels, and random NPCs …. don’t worry, my fence friend will find you better homes …

If they do this every month you’ll have enough to buy a big house after a year.

Or if you have 12 junk email accounts to use? 12 accounts to make on top of your original, and in one month you’ll have the cash to do so. At the very least, I’m sure any gold-farmers in the game (if they exist) are giddy with the amount of gold about to be tossed towards their hundreds of accounts that they can hold onto and sell after the influx of free gold works its way out of the system.

that would be an expensive prospect as the game isn’t free to play its buy to play. So you’d still have to own a copy of the game for each account to make use of them.

That is definitely true. That’s why I figure at the very least any gold farmers in-game are happy to see a bit of easy gold to nab (and possibly steal more from any accounts they’ve compromised).

But you would have to buy the game 12 times? I mean 100k is not that big of a money :D

At the cost of 12 ESO+ accounts for one month. Not sure that would be worth it.

You also get a free outfit that will-while worn-humiliate you toward leaving town to go adventure more!
