    Enough with bashing eachother, guys.. This community is still young and needs to grow up and show that not everyone are jerks. We're gamers and we enjoy games, don't bash eachother over what games they like or their oppinions, but don't let them bash others either. We need to come together and stand up, as a community, and help eachother out by being respectful and understanding. Please.

    Something more informative from the developers would've been better. =/

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that was thinking that. Although there have been about three articles (one was a two parter) that I know of that were released this week. I was hoping for something directly from ZeniMax Online on their website. It's been about two weeks since the awesome cinematic. We need some new stuff. Or new pictures or something.

    They're probably waiting it out for the big unveiling. I'd reckon that beta won't be starting for a very long time. Mid-March at the WAY earliest but most likely around summer.

    Please don't say Guild Wars and EVE in the same breath. One isn't even an MMO, and the other defines what an MMO should strive for. It is like comparing a steaming pile of crap to the Mona Lisa LOL.

    Seriously though, it is actually extraordinarily difficult to have s single server MMO which is why the only games that do it either aren't MMOs or they are so geographically spread out they keep people apart as much as possible. Even EVE which you identified has major lag issues that they introduced a bogus mechanic called "time dillation" which basically meant "if it was crowded time slowed down" IE LAGFEST

    Can someone more informed let me know if they're planning to deal with the faction imbalances?

    The Ebonheart Pact is going to be the most played faction by far and it's concerning.

    They mentioned something about if one team was dominating RvR, the other two factions could team up and work together to overthrow them.

    The three faction system is designed to naturally balance and lend political intrigue to the persistent PvP endgame. If any one faction becomes too powerful, the other two factions naturally tend to work together to turn the tide of battle.

    Given the amount of people who are going to play Nords and Dark Elves. I'm glad to hear that.

    Not much nords, mostly dunmer, aye. All the polls on the official bethsoft forums concluded the Ebonheart pact the most popular one, followed by Aldmeri dominion, and Daggerfall covenant falling back behind.

    And no one was surprised. A faction that combines the main races of two of the three "mainstream" TES game races was bound to be popular. Actually any faction that the Darkelves got put in was going to be the biggest, lets be real here.

    I am totally going to play a Dunmer and steal the name Nerevarine.

    Well, if the Ebonheart pact is going to be the most popular always, the two other factions will just continue to work together to keep them in check. So in time, the dunmer will lose their unreasonable popularity.

    Oh god, nicknames like xXNerewarrinneXx are coming D:

  17. #2417
    I plan to have one of each, but my main will possibly be orc or khajiit. And yeah, anyone who thought that Ebonheart wasn't going to be the most popular (especially with Skyrim the most recent one in people's memories) was in denial. And the Argonians will be the least represented of the Ebonheart.

    I am surprised that there hasn't been anything about the khajiit being "infested" with furries like people raged about with the worgen. Of course, khajiit have always been a playable race, but with this being online, I am amazed I haven't seen anything about that.

    And no surprise about Daggerfall being the least popular (nothing but humans and orcs). I just hope that the population won't be completely one-sided in favor of Ebonheart, especially in the case of making it impossible for either Aldmeri or Daggerfall never gaining Cyrodiil, even if they do team up together. Because then everyone will hop over to Ebonheart and make it rather pointless.

    Yeah that's my concern. I'm not sure what they were thinking putting dark elves and nords in the same faction.

    I'll be a Breton of the Daggerfall Covenant just because I love the lore of High Rock and Bretons.

    (And to anyone who'd say "Bretons are just humans" don't be silly. They're still with elven heritage which is why they wield magic so well =D)

    In addition, I love the background story regarding the Orcs so Daggerfall Covenant is perfect for someone like me =)

    Perhaps they'll go the Planetside 2 route - if some of the factions are doing worse than the others, then that faction gains some boosts and/or bonuses.
