Elder Scrolls Online is handing out 500 cash-shop currency to current players

If you’re an existing Elder Scrolls Online player who’s logged in between the start of 2017 and now, heads-up: ZeniMax is handing out a stack of free currency to you – 500 crowns, to be exact.

“To show our appreciation for an ESO community that keeps surprising us, we’re gifting all active ESO accounts 500 crowns!” says the studio. “500 crowns will be gifted to ALL qualifying ESO accounts on February 11 for PC/Mac and February 13 for Xbox One and PlayStation®4 To qualify for the free crowns, you must have logged in to the game between January 1, 2017 at 2:00AM EST, and February 7, 2019 at 2:00AM EST.” Why now? ZOS says it’s to celebrate all the awards ESO won at the end of 2018 – including best expansion for Summerset from everyone here at MOP. Huzzah.

The company has a lot of promos running right now, including a free trial event, the Morrowind Celebration event, and a Valentine’s Day-themed gift event that can net you a minipig for your generosity.

I racked some 800 hours between Marche 2018 and November 2018, does that qualify?

Sweet! I love when little things like this happen in my favorite MMOs. This is the slow time of year at work, so I’ve had to dial back my MMO spending, and between this and ESO plus, I just might be able to get that mount at the end of the month that I really want without guilt!

Yes, spending on an MMO without guilt. Love that. :)

I don’t understand. Why do this unless you have a can- uh, nylon bag to sell?

They must have a new set of loot boxes releasing. Costing about 500 crowns.

Keep those 100 for the vain hope that you’ll be able to buy something.

Then you aren’t, and the itch to buy becomes greater.

I don’t think anything costs 100.

I think you can buy some single use dyes — or they are a dye set that you have to keep in your inventory. For like 90? There will still be that leftover amount though.

Only 300 more and I have enough for another box.

Minimum purchase 500 crownz.

I guess I’ll get two more boxes then.

Why would you buy boxes? When I got the game in 2015 they gave me 500 Crowns, I didn’t know what to buy with them at first since everything available seemed like trash, so I decided to hold onto them. Come 2018, I made my character, reached level 20-something and I realized I made him too thin and didn’t want to start over so I bought 1500 Crowns, got the token where I can change my character’s appearance and I was left with around 1000 Crowns (my first 500 and about 500 more) and at that time Thieve’s Guild and Dark Brotherhood DLCs were on sale for 500 Crowns each, so I got both…

So now when I get those 500, I will hold onto them.

I don’t think you got the point of the joke. It’s common for some games to give you awkward numbers of premium currency so you can feel the lack for something specific, but so close.

It’s a psychological thing they do to force a bit more buying.

So if the MOP folks were partially to thank for getting those 500 free crowns to the community…maybe MOP ESO players could get, I dunno…a friendly kickback? A cool 750 maybe?
