Ebonheart lacks a decent caster race (Dunmer being the closest, but not matching High Elves or Bretons).

AD lacks a decent tank race (Both Wood Elves and Khajiit are more melee DPS).

 

I think players who didn't pre-order and are wanting to be caster DPS in EP and DC will be seriously disadvantaged by not being able to choose High Elves. 6% flat increase isn't exactly a trivial boost, the melee dps and tank choices by comparison aren't that meaningful (although the extra health for tanks is obviously desirable).   

IMO they should add the 6% damage increase to both Bretons and Dark Elves, or remove it from High Elves (and the fire boost from Dark Elves) and give them something else.

 

 

on the other hand, dunmer dragon knight make by far the best fire mages...and fire is especially useful against vampires

I still think High Elves would make better DKs if you are focusing on fire, they get 6% boost, and more mana regen which is useful for DKs. They just miss out on 6% more stamina and some fire resistance to get 3% more fire damage and increased mana regen.

IMO  good game play by the players will be OP at launch  in several betas I've been on many factions  and each can do well but in almost every case it came down to good/voice chat using players  and skilled players.

But for Population  Ebon Hear  due to Morrowin/Skyrim   at launch will get the draw

No need, you can play through all the other faction areas once you are 50.

I want an mmorpg where pvp matters, my enemies are not my race or class, and community matters.

The ebonheart pack will come in second as it has races people will like to play and has SKyrim.

I'm planning to play the daggerfall covenant and I think it will be the least played with it's races and starting setting.  The setting seems a little different then what I'm used to playing with Skyrim and Oblivion. 

Huge advantage.

I thought the same after my first beta weekend on with Ebonheart, last beta weekend it was the Blue guys (daggerfall?). Maybe just my campaign, but we got stomped Friday might lol.

Yeah I was in DC and saw something similar. It was the AD who were in the worst position on the campaigns I tried as they fell to just a single keep or so at times and lost their scroll. EP consistently did ok and were never seriously threatened as far as I could tell.

 

Beta weekends will probably be different to after launch though of course.

Aldmari
Ebonheart would be however with the freedom for Preorders to faction jump they will join Aldmari for its better starter zone

Who knows the mix. I would say though that often choices of race/faction are made  based on how attractive a character/race is judged to be.

Yes thought that too  would be lore breaking but instead of the factions open to all races on the pre order  should have just been pick your racial trait  and added to the story as you have mixed blood. But will be left to be seen its still Beta  and I recall Rift having some issue like this and the racial's got changed before launch

Ebonheart has Skyrim/Nordic, Morrowind/Alien-Barrens, Blackmarsh/swamp-jungle

Daggerfall has the Breton area which is medieval fantasy / European style, the barrens/rocky area from the orcs and desert from the Redguards

While the Dominion featueres some tropic/island environment, and large forrests... i think The Dominion area while very beautiful might be the "least diverse"

 

I played Dagger a good bit to try them only thing that makes me shy off is for Trade  if I need some item or mats etc.  will I have a viable economy to earn it ?  will we control Keeps in AvAvA  so I can trade?

  In the more populated/popular factions there will be less concern. But that was one factor I kept thinking

A Covenant Redguard here. I prefer the DC ideology better so starter territory doesn't really matter much for me.

This is the main reason why I'm choosing Daggerfall as well. I'm already fed up with elves in many other thousands of mmorpgs and I've spent hundreds of hours in Skyrim. I found Daggerfall continent fresh and different.

Moreover, it's not like we won't see other factions' area as we'll tackle them later in 50+ and 50++ content.

FYI, Bretons have elf blood :) However I too will be enjoying Daggerfall.

I don't think any faction will be "OP" in the long run.  We need to remember, overall population is irrelevant.  It's only the portions of the populations that actually choose to participate in PvP that matter.  And given the per-campaign population caps for each faction, it's entirely possible that overall population numbers won't matter there either.

Seems my earlier assumptions about Ebonheart could be totally wrong ! 

 

If the Reddit poll is anything to go by, EP is the least popular faction on Reddit:

I think perhaps Ebon will be most populated however I think in PVP Daggerfall will really triumph. During closed beta at least during USA eastern time zone DC really was able to fight a two front war and keep AD / EP at bay. 

 

A lot of the major experienced multi-game PvP Guild like Primal Instinct, 13th legion, rq are going to be playing on daggerfall. I think that a lot of people will be scooped up into these guilds at early launch and their organization and hierarchy will allow for an organized approach to AvA vs other factions which seem a little more disorganized at this team.

 

DC already has an overarching Alliance of top guilds that just issued its first podcast and the guild leaders are having regular meetings. In addition their merchant guild hierarchy is already organized.

I'd bet on Aldmeri and Ebonheart in terms of population. Those two seem to lead most poll's that I've seen.

I've never seen Daggerfall lead a poll.

IMO they should add the 6% damage increase to both Bretons and Dark Elves, or remove it from High Elves (and the fire boost from Dark Elves) and give them something else.

 

 

High Elves are fantastic tanks, actually, as are Khajit.  You just can't build them as health tanks and still get the same bang for your buck.  High Elves make great Siphon Nightblade Tanks, and Khajit can role Blur Nightblade Tanks (run ridiculous miss chance/evade chance.)  High Elves can also run Blood Magic Sorcerers with Bound Armor, Daedric Protection, and AoE CC, with each CC healing them for 6% max hp per enemy hit.

 

You can't throw races and classes into specific archetypes with this game.  Take it from someone who has spent years theorycrafting for a dozen different games (much of that time with a variety of tabletop games, notably more complex and diverse than your standard MMO.)  Sure, certain races will be better at certain things, but if you build properly, you can swing health, stamina, or magic builds (of which each race tends to have a focus) into any role.

 

As for magic damage, Dark Elves have some ridiculous bonuses with fire.  They certainly won't be equivalent to high elves with other elements, but fire is their bitch.  Bretons, on the other hand, fit the tanky mage archetype much better, which also makes them very suitable for magick based assassin types or healers.

 

If someone HAS to play a health based dragonknight, and HAS to min max, and thus HAS to pick Orsimer, but all their friends are playing Ebonheart... Well then they HAVE to dish out that extra cash or preorder if they want to get that 2% bonus over Nords.   But race provides a flavor all on its own that can't really be measured by a min maxer.  And in the end, 2-4% is not going to be a game breaker in a game where teamwork is 90% of PvP and the harder PvE content.

 

I'll be playing Redguard or Khajit Sorcerer.  Probably Redguard, as there'll be plenty of Khajits running around.  Max Stamina, secondary in Health.  Screw archetypes.  Sure, I won't have the 6% elemental damage High elves get, but that won't matter.  I'll have 10x their sustain and will outlast them with ease in a one on one.
