    @TESOnline idk what happen this patch but for the love of god fix the pvp servers slowly want to uninstall

    Soon I will be deleting the Elder Scrolls Online on the PS4 and replacing it with RDR2. Everything in the Crown Store is way too expensive and not worth the money I am putting into it, and this issue seems to be getting worse instead of better.

    @sirocsa @TESOnline I agree but wish they would correct the issues in the updates before release. They new of the issues in Murkmire on pc but still released it on console.

    @TempoReynad Oops you might be playing elder scrolls legends not fallout. I didn't have an issue downloading it but only thing I could think of is running it as administrator

    Actually. I'm willing to call outright malice since @bethesda has experience with online games and how to handle in game harassment due to a little thing called @TESOnline. So, big old **** you Bethesda. Way to be the problem.

    @nendoras @TESOnline Yeah they have a bunch of videos on YouTube and post on the forums about the issues. Maybe just ps4.

    @TESOnline Had to turn off the game, Murkmire update broke the game. Horrible lag, many skills are broker and not performing . They should have released a fix patch before the event. Shame I really wanted to play.

    @TESOnline this Clockwork City Event is not very fun. The lag is so overwhelming. I crash and I'm hard-wired into the modem.

    @RAZ0RFIST I have a feeling those that the negative critics of Underworld Ascendant are going to be the greatest fans of Bethesda's 6th installment to Elder Scrolls. Which uses the same engine of Fallout 76. That buggy, glitch ridden thing from invented for Skyrim.

    I’ve never seen a more broken game than @TESOnline , so biased, like completely all about stam, need magic down to the ground, bashing is broken have to do it multiple times, stuns, ultimates, all broken and not working properly, constant dc, constant lag

  • BrandyStretton
    Brandy Stretton (@BrandyStretton) reported

    @TESOnline you seriously need to spend time and money fixing the bugs, lag, load screens, server issues, etc. So frustrating to spend money in this and it not work properly.

    @NateFallout111 And I’d love to have the next elder scrolls game, so I guess we both got problems

  • HuskersAlex

    Ready for Starfield and Elder Scrolls 6 to look awful and be on a really shitty engine with all the bugs and shitty performance and unpolished shit that Bethesda will never fix.

    @SpiritAvenged That's not really an issue for me. The older elder scrolls had the same payment method. It's in game currency.

    @HellsbunniesTV @TESOnline Ah, but this is a moderation issue that is overlooked by professionals in the stream and by public relation liasons administering their Twitter account. In both cases, they simply ignore people who speak up, a horrible tactic, IMPO.

    @TESOnline how many times am i suppose to click my skills before one actually works i could be the only person in an area and they dont work the game isnt smooth at all since the last patch and nothings being done about it , its pathetic Nd a joke fix your shit

  • ripper19777
    Jack Ripper (@ripper19777) reported

    @CrimZon_666 @TESOnline Since the Murkmire update the game had more lag, Templar sweeps are not working. Snipe is not working properly.

    🤷‍♂️🙄😳 (@IKnowDaWaeBroda) reported

    @seth586 @iams0l1d @TheQuartering The problem is, Bethesda were always asses, their games were always buggy, and Elder Scrolls Online wasn’t a big success either, so business as usual. If you can’t mod a Bethesda game it’s gonna have problems

  • Aries_AF_Brian
    𝔖𝔲𝔠𝔠𝔲𝔟𝔲𝔰𝔰𝔦 (@Aries_AF_Brian) reported

    ANYTHING in the Elder Scrolls or Fallout Series by Bethesda since and including Morrowind will do this for me. Also, despite their problems, No Man's Sky and the original Mass Effect and Mass Effect: Andromeda do this for me.

  • leftendo
    Leftendo (@leftendo) reported

    @ameyuurei thing is Im opposed to the games as a service model. I like Bethesda games, Elder scrolls though never played a fallout, but I would prefer they not go down that ubisoft/EA/activision/warner road. So to me the review bombing could be quite positive.

  • kungfuman316
    Kung Fu Man (@kungfuman316) reported

    Additionally demanding that they change their core out completely...probably won't fix every single issues. Engines these days are still built on a base, and with the base comes flaws. A new engine for the next Elder Scrolls will likely bring a whole slew of new bugs too.

  • SixxMakaveli
    Antoine?/Sixx! (@SixxMakaveli) reported

    @TheZetaHD Problem is to me that at least Fallout 4 you can mod it. I doubt this is the case for 76. It's basically Elder Scrolls Online but its Fallout

    @OultroxDev @BubbaBeefcake @TESOnline I dnt see how I'm being toxic, I'm a customer that spends a lot of money on this product. I have also sent support tickets in that are not answered. They knew about the problems from the pc and test but still did not fx the problem before going live on console.

    @TESOnline I like both, i prefer pve, like trials ... but with last patch ALL TRIALS are BROKEN ... absolutely unplayable ... so please fix this before people gets bored and more angry... and leave this game for good. Your mistakes are killing @TESOnline

    @TomatoTentacle @smug_coffee_man @YangyYoung @IHE_OFFICIAL im runnin the decade old engine across all 4 fallout games that use it and atleast one elder scrolls on a broken ass 2 year old xbox and the only issues ive ever had is when the game creates too many enemies or objects on my screen at once. then i crash and have to restart.

  • Kianfox
    Kraka'ta Hoonga (@Kianfox) reported

    @dalebroder @Bizarre_Jelly They continue making their games with a mod of an engine that's 20 years old. 76 looks awesome its just hard to get past the issues that have been in every bethesda game since Morrowind. Apparently the new Elder Scrolls is also gonna be on the same engine :/.

  • FlamingNGaming
    Flamingninja Gaming (@FlamingNGaming) reported

    @SkillUpYT I was very disappointed to hear that Elder Scrolls VI will also use the same broken, buggy, outdated, hideous engine as this poor excuse for a ‘game’ but unfortunately, I can’t say I’m surprised...

    @m_m_myers @lisaquestions @ChapienFerret @8ALTON8 Tbh, the draw of Elder Scrolls games is the modding community who somehow manage to fix the games after Bethesda releases yet another shitty game.

    @zealotonpc The worst thing about Bethesda is Todd Howard is apparently gonna use their outdated engine for Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield. The engine is the biggest problem. We have stuff like the decima engine and unreal engine while Bethesda sticks with their crappy outdated one.

    @juliasaori @Fallout From experiences I've had in other Fallout and Elder Scrolls, that bug/glitch is caused by missing textures, so a repair/reinstall should fix it.

    Deng Gardner (@deng_gardner) reported

    Not playing Fallout 76 tonight because this broken-ass game requires a 50.76 GB update to even play. Fun. Yes, I understand I have slow internet. Yes, that connection has also worked just fine for Elder Scrolls Online and Overwatch.

  • TheLazyShogun
    Isaac Belaich (@TheLazyShogun) reported

    Elder scrolls online had that same problem in the beginning with the resentment of other people that walk into your quest and kill everyons without saying anything and stealing your shit. They fixed it why fallout devs didn't think about this astounds me! Only like half is fixed

    @dpjsc08 Every fallout and elder scrolls game is like that on launch. Buggy as ****, freezes amd enemies glitching completely out or respawning. They eventually fix it enough to be playable but the glitches are always still there. I LOVE them be damn they are bad for having glitches.

  • poondonkus
    Piranha Donkus (@poondonkus) reported

    the fact remains that we keep seeing the same KIND of problems in every single Fallout and Elder Scrolls. Their physics speed is still tied directly to framerate, which is something we learned to avoid in Game Dev 101. And maybe it's all the other factors mentioned in the article

  • thedirtypony333
    🐴TheDirtyPony✨ (@thedirtypony333) reported

    Not sure what is going on in Bethesda's mind...Fallout76 a broken, glitchy mess; the servers been crashing since launch and now there are reports that their next two games Starfield and Elder Scrolls 6 will be on the same old potato engine that ran Oblivion, Fallout, Skyrim...

  • Lambey332
    Lambey Zayn LOW (@Lambey332) reported

    @devolore @Strippin I think that's a big problem with taking a game and trying to make it online without necessarily thinking it through and without the experience of knowing online MMO's and their systems. Elder Scrolls Online had a rocky start for similar reasons.

  • sojaro
    Mephistopheles (@sojaro) reported

    Like. There's my review for Elder Scrolls VI. If you bought Skyrim more than once, you'll probably swallow this load, too. It'll be a shallow open world experience, but you'll still spread for it. The modding community will probably fix things that the devs couldn't be assed to.

    Fallout 76 is a failure from the very foundation of it's concept and it's something I've said the moment they announced it. Same with Elder Scrolls Online. The countless myriad of technical issues and aesthetic flaws only add to what is a piece of a shit from the ground up.
