Veteran Ranks Being Removed -- Early Planning Announced

Veteran Ranks Being Removed -- Early Planning Announced - MMORPG.com

Rich Lambert has taken to the Elder Scrolls Online forums to let players know that Veteran Ranks are in the planning stages to be removed from the game. He does, however, say that the team is not quite ready to speak to how precisely things will change as it is still in the early, non-finalized stages of planning.

A little context here before this gets too out of hand…

  1. We’re still working on the system – nothing is finalized. (which is why we’re not really talking much about it yet)
  2. The intention is that once you hit 50, champion points take over. Veteran Ranks are completely removed.
  3. When Veteran Ranks are removed, we will convert any Veteran Ranks on your highest character into CP.
  4. To get a rough idea of balance - think of 10CP = 1 VR. (so 160 CP will roughly = VR16)


Additional Details:

  • We’re planning on giving 2.5 CP for every VR level you’ve earned on your highest level character. (40 for a VR16 character)
  • When the conversion happens, any player with CP less than their old veteran rank * 10 will instead be given enough CP such that their total is VR * 10. For example: A player is VR14 with 75 CP, they will be given 65 CP (140-75) instead of 40, so that they can still equip any gear they may have.
  • We will make sure the 16 attribute picks you got from VR1 to VR16 will carry over. (current plan is an achievement that goes up in 10 CP increments until 160)


Keep in mind that none of the stuff above is 100% locked in. We're still implementing the feature - things are subject to change. It's important that everyone understands they are not suddenly going to have to have 501 CP in order to equip the top level gear. We will introduce new gear, with higher CP requirements sometime in the future, but we won't be making huge jumps. (i.e. - we won't go from 160 to 400 suddenly)

Once we finalize the system and lock in more of the details, we will discuss things in more detail and answer questions.
