    @BethesdaSupport @TESOnline I’m happy that this game is on PS4 because of the Login nightmare on XBOX.

    @BethesdaSupport @TESOnline Voice chat is broken in game PS4 EU, when will this be fixed please?

    @TESOnline Are there any plans to fix stability? I had to stop playing because of incredibly bad frame drops on the Xbox One X

    @BethesdaSupport @TESOnline I just went out and bought a new PlayStation with the 5G network card because Vivec was unplayable with the 2014 PlayStation. The computational demands for playing Vivec and the rest of the game are very different. I am not having a problem with frame rates, just bitrate issues

    Alexander Peter Dougherty (@alexanderdough7) reported

    @BethesdaSupport @TESOnline Please don't say Maintenance is Complete when you still have two servers down. I accept it's complete for Xbox and PCs, but until the PlayStation servers are back up Maintenance is not complete.

    @TESOnline Hey, I need help deleting an old account to link my email for a new account. The old account is untouched for like 4 years on an xbox, and I dont remember the login credentials for that. First and last name arent working for username recovery, so I need to talk to ppl

    @TESOnline FYI: Amazon version has a glitch in the first track where the audio cuts out. Contacted Amazon (bought it this weekend when it became available), but as of yesterday it’s not been fixed yet.

    @josephg902000 @BethesdaSupport @TESOnline To be fair to them, I’ve had no issues for the past 3 days.

    Jon Calvin (@JonCalvin84) reported

    It's crazy to think Elder Scrolls Legends might not come to PS4 because of this issue, but I see Bethesda's point. No wants to have two totally separate accounts on this sort of game where you invest over time in a significant card collection.

  • realNickSosa
    Nicholas Sosa (@realNickSosa) reported

    @BethesdaSupport @TESOnline Are they updating the console servers with the same broken code that the PC server is running? Keep walls in Cyrodiil are just randomly fluctuating up and down. There's like no rhyme or reason to it.

  • Apex_Tha_GOAT
    Boi (@Apex_Tha_GOAT) reported

    @TESOnline this game is so unbalanced. And you don’t plan on fixing the broken shit. You needed defile and snares? Cool. Nerf the damage that snipe does, nerf rune cage to the ground, buff magDK, buff templar’s damage, give stamsorc a good class damaging ability.

    @TESOnline just thought id let u know (its only a small glitch not worth submitting tickets or feedback) there is a glitch where i cant talk to Amelie Crowe in Alinor thieves haven, its killing me i cant talk to her as she looks so cool now lol

  • JSzukala
    Jayden Szukala (@JSzukala) reported

    @TESOnline Your most recent patch and the Wolfhunter DLC has already broken the game for many people, including me, can you please fix this?

  • DJNYified
    DJ (@DJNYified) reported

    @50YearOldGamer Then wait for Kingdom Come to be free with Gold. It's as buggy as The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion was on PC. Horrendous crashes at the worst times, broken quests, etc. Great game, piss poor dev and QA. FC5 however, is perfection. 2nd DLC out in 2 weeks.

    @WMD_HQ @BJH2K01 @TESOnline @Xbox No problem. I wouldn’t call it a cash grab when they put time and effort on DLCs (except crown crates)

    Deathclaw Arm Doctor (@BJH2K01) reported

    @sekai @TESOnline Final boss is easy too. Really stupid. I as a healer and my tank killed it from like 500k health or something with no issues.

    @TESOnline @MorrowindRP Yes like the indrik throwing way, or when I wanna take a look at the beatiful scenery and big Hercine, go to the edge at the end and game says nope, insta kills me. :/ /cry Pls fix, allow us to the edge! This one likes views!! /kowtow /beg

    Sir Bobby Danger (@KingOfWinning) reported

    @TESOnline You still haven’t successfully implemented the stability fixes on console, and you have a texture issue that causes some textures to fail to transition from the distant LODs to the appropriate textures. Your 4K patch is missing many 4K textures, load times have worsened despite

    The thought of Bethesda blackmailing Sony to help open the cross play floodgates is hilarious. Over-confidence wrapped in delusion Side note: Every Fallout or Elder Scrolls game I've ever played was broken garbage. We ALL know this, and Witcher 3 is how you do open world right

    @PlayStation wtf, thanks to your stubbornness and your backwards ideals, we won't be getting elder scrolls legends. this would have been big, both on the PS4 AND the psVita but you stay like this... also I still can't play fortnite on anything else. fix this right now Sony!

    I should mention I generally HATE digital card games, I was trying @TESLegends because of how into The Elder Scrolls Ive been lately. @Bethesda has about 2 hours to reply to this problem before I just uninstall and never think of this game again.

    Lady Pensioner (@dixhelen) reported

    @justissaayman @jadeyfly @TESOnline It's about fairness. I'm aware zos need licenses for consoles. The point being that they should have got the licences first and included everyone at the same time. Problem solved.

    @Kotaku Awww man why does Elder Scrolls Legends have to be the one to throw down an ultimatum on this issue. I’ve wanted it on my PS4 for quite a while.

    @TESOnline Wait! Solved it. In game, the “Display Mode” setting had reset to “Windowed”. Toggling to “Fullscreen” resolves the issue.

    @TESOnline Not buying another dlc until the servers are fixed! Tired of running into lag and people and things loading in slow. Never use to run into solid black people loading in until this year. I look at this as shades of things to come...Money over quality as always with gaming now.

    @gimmethefife Truthfully, I'm enjoying the hell out of it. It's a bugged up mess, but it's just your standard Elder Scrolls experience. They'll make you laugh if anything. There's a genuinely fun game there if you can look past some stuff. Nothing a patch can't fix.

  • MishTarkena
    Mishkaiel (@MishTarkena) reported

    @TESOnline you always give me high ping in the EXACT same place in vMA. If you fixed your servers regularly, this wouldn't be an issue. If it weren't for this one place where the ping spikes EVERY SINGLE TIME I do vMA, then I'd have it flawless. Fix it please. #fixeso

    @TESOnline I’m having problems that your team is closing problem tickets without solving the problems. This is a crown store item issue. I did not receive items and your team seems to want to avoid looking into the problem. Please look into customer service ticket 180811-004215.

    @DooZy187 @TESOnline @BethesdaSupport @XboxSupport Try to delete and re install the game. That is the normal fix for most issues. If not then you might just have to wait for a patch.

    @AmbassadorZero @TESOnline @BethesdaSupport @XboxSupport I don't know what that is. I downloaded the game, it worked fine for a few days and the this happened and apparently there isn't a fix. Sucks playing a game without sound.
