Welcome to my ESO PvP Guides. There are way too many people saying way too many different things about PvP. This is my attempt to ensure that as many people as possible are not given false, misleading, or wrong information.
Why should you listen to me? My main character on PC/NA is Crown, Alliance War Grand Overlord (the highest PvP rank that you can get) and the first North American AD player to reach that rank. I have been playing since about three months after launch, and have been in Cyrodiil (PvP) since mid 2014. Between all of my characters, I’ve been crowned Emperor 189 times (that I kept track of) on every campaign since Thornblade (I believe that I’ve worked hard at and deserved most of those – though a few were night capped or PvDoored by other people while I was sleeping), and have helped more people than I care to remember become Emperor and/or make it to the top 2% of the leader boards in every campaign I’ve played.
Do you have to listen to me? No. If you don’t want to / care to, stop reading and go do something more fun. If you are relatively new to the game and want to read some of my advice, then please do read on and perhaps it can help you be a better player.
I stopped playing the game regularly around the time that Thieves Guild was released (early 2016) and came back to the game just after One Tamriel (September 2016). The main reasons I left the game were due to a realisation that I enjoyed the camaraderie and social aspects of the game far more than actually playing. This was largely due to the issues and problems that had not been addressed, game breaking bugs, lack of proper balance, and decisions made by the people in charge that simply made the game worse rather than more fun. There are still significant issues with PvP (and the game in general), though until Camelot Unchained is out of beta, or something else grabs my attention, I’ll probably keep playing ESO (though nowhere near as much or as seriously as I did before).
If you would like to chat about games, or join us and be social, please feel free to hop into the Just Chill / PvP.Ninja Discord (our old TS used to be PvP.Ninja). A lot of the old timers from Moonlight, Majestic 12, Misfitz, Victorem, Resilient, RAGE, and Just Chill are there to keep track of where our friends have gone, what they’re currently playing, and simply keep in touch.
If you’re an ESO player of any faction, you’re welcome to join the ESO PvP Discord.
