Launcher Updates – 15.12.2014


Today, we updated the ESO launcher to include the following improvements and fixes:

  • Realm status is now available on the launcher.
  • Made improvements to the launcher to reduce system resource slow-down when applying game patches.
  • Fixed an issue with the patch progress bar visual so it no longer shows a progress past 100%.
  • Fixed an issue where the game would not automatically launch when starting up the launcher.
  • Improved messaging for some error messages and the repair process to help identify and resolve issues.
  • Fixed an issue where if you highlight PTS, hide PTS in the launcher options, then click Play, you would still be sent to the PTS.

Please let us know if you run into any issues with the new launcher. Thank you!

Cyrodiil Performance & Population Cap Adjustments


Hi everyone,

We are aware that there are performance issues in Cyrodiil with particular campaigns at certain hours. During our investigations into the problem, we have discovered a decrease in performance if the population of a campaign passes a certain threshold. In order to address this, we are going to decrease the campaign population cap below that threshold. This is unlikely to have any negative effects for the majority of PvP players, although you may encounter a queue if you log in during prime time hours, particularly with the North American and European Thornblade campaigns. While we believe this change will improve the overall performance in Cyrodiil, we will still continue to work on other optimizations.

This change will happen within the next hour, and won’t require a server maintenance or a client restart. We’ll let you know as soon as it’s complete.

Thank you for your continued patience and support!
