I tried out PVP today and i was blown away by how smooth it was with having tons of other players engage in a realistic looking battle! After a long day at work i came back and just played battle music and rode into battle with my fellow players. BTW is there a way to screen shot? post your screen shots too.

A guildmate and I were riding towards Roebeck, as the Daggerfall Covenant, which we had under siege. When we arrived at ridge overlooking Roebeck, we saw a massive exodus of troops on horses. Following them was another mass of horses but of the Aldmeri Dominion. From our ridge, it looked like a near never ending stream of horses.

I posted my PvP exp in another thread (that I can't find now) - I think you read it though.

Fraps. Google it. But turn off the movie making if you might hit F11 in some games, as you might fill up your HDD fast like I did when using "quicksave" in Civ5 LOL. F10 is usually a good key for screenshot, as most games don't use it. And the unpaid ver of Fraps only saves in bmp format, uncompressed - big files. So the best thing is to compress them into jpg/png later (tedious unless you use an automated tool).

I believe I got some good ones from a stronghold assault (outside). But I don't have time to post right now. Will do so someday soon maybe tomorrow.

On my computer, the "prt sc" (print screen) tab works just fine to take screenshots.

This was during the beta, but it works:

I was part of the Aldmeri Dominion. We sieged and took over the fort (can't remember the name) that was close to the Imperial City right on the border between our territory and Ebonheart's. We got everything repaired and immediately got swarmed. We held them off for what felt like an hour. There were people in the chat saying that the fort was as good as done, and should be abandoned to do a quick surprise offensive against a different keep. The Ebonheart bastards eventually broke their way in amid cries of "The fort has fallen!" in my chat log. We weren't going to take that shit from the Ebonheart Pact though.

After they broke in and were starting to swarm, the defenders inside the keep pushed the Ebonheart force back out. Someone else and I had wall repair kits so we repaired the gates again while in full view of the enemy getting beaten to a pulp right outside. A lot of people left the fort and battered the enemy line back. After another 5 minutes or so we got a wave on reinforcements and pushed them all the way back to their keep and took it.

That is my PvP story.

This might have been part of the story above.
An AD stronghold under siege by EP (I was EP) on 3/15/14 near the end of Beta. Sejanus outpost, Azura's Star campaign.:

Yeah, that was definitely the place! Not sure if that was the same campaign though, but definitely sounds plausible if it was near the end of that beta.

I... think I might actually be able to see myself in a couple of the screenshots. Khajiit with a bow closer to the front and on top during the main part of the siege. After we repaired the wall, I came out of the keep and started peppering people with arrows from near the entrance. Really hard to be sure it was me though.

Well I checked the orig source bmp's, can't make out any races since the heads are only about a dozen pixels each. As far as campaign, this was the only one that was happening at the time - that's why I picked it. The other campaigns had only one (of 3) bar of progress for each alliance. So we can just assume it was. Cool. I couldn't get closer to see your face as I would have attracted a lot of fire.

Now that I think about it, I was definitely there. I remember the siege equipment being in that area when we were pushing you back. :P

My first PvP experience? Well my first experience in Cyrodiil landed me in a awkward situation which soon came to an swift end. Twas my first time, I didn't know what I was doing at the time and was quite happy having a stroll between Keeps. A flashy keep caught my eye on the compass at the top so I went to that direction and found myself behind enemy lines! The Daggerfall covenant didn't spot me at the as they were too busy ravishing our keep. And so the walls broke down and they spewed in the gaping wound. Like a fresh newb at level 10 I wanted to earn my stripes. So I followed followed them from behind thirsting for blood then suddenly my game logged me out with an error like I was being unplugged from the Matrix. The end.
