8% of people who chose Nords said they are choosing the Daggerfall Covenant. Good luck with that.

Also, what about those other MMORPGs where the populations turned out opposite the pre-launch polls?

Still, an interesting poll. Of particular note I was surprised how the rogue/stealth type classes which are usually highly popular in MMOs were one of the least popular archetypes in this one. Also very interesting how housing is the least wanted feature given how often people cry out for it on these boards.

 What about the poll that says there are now over 50 million people that identify themselves as other when asked what religion they are? These people identify themselves as atheist, agnostic, or just non-religious. What about those polls!

What about the poll where people state they like white chocolate over dark chocolate? Got milk? What about Got chocolate milk?

Why am I even posting?

Cool poll...very interesting!

I can't believe there is no love for the High Elfs.  I can thank Skyrim for that. That game almost made me hate them and they're my favorite class!

And Player housing and First-person view so down on the list? What is that about? I don't want to store all my fancy loot is some bland bank or storage box! I want to store it in my storage box, inside my house. But then again, I would appear  on a episode of Skyrim: Hoarders.

Altmer are ugly. Yellow skin, huge jaws, weird eyes... Unlike Dunmer, they don't look weird or exotic. Just ugly. They've also always had a superiority complex that made them unlikeable. Breton are nicer and made better mages in most games, too.

Pretty much I expected for factions.

The ealiest questions are flawed (by the survey site).

Which are you most likely to choose

Which are you least likely to choose

Can simultaneously have the same choice/answer.

A 1-5 scale would've sufficed, been a single question, and not subject to contradiction polling errors.

 

Still, some of the later results, particularly regarding game features, are fascinating. I'd love to see them answered by a non-segmented (single game) player population.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

Probably a good idea to figure that one out before posting ;)

Interesting results. Although, I doesn't match other similar polling I've seen, which mean the voter sample was biased toward certian elements.

For the factions, the score doesn't match what can be seen on Tamriel Foundry fansite (the biggest one around I think). Were the Dominion is more popular than the Covenant. Also, I would have though that the Khajiit would have been more popular than that.

The funniest bit is this though:

  • Solo content: 4.13
  • End-game PvE raiding: 3.86

Most interesting part to me...

9) Rate the game features below based on how important they are to you, including both the inclusion of them and the quality of their implementation:

  • 1 ...
  • 2 ...
  • 3 ...
  • ...
  • 15 ...
  • Organized PvP or battlegrounds: 3.74
  • Public PvE dungeons: 3.72
  • Crafting: 3.67
  • Open-world PvP in leveling zones: 3.57
  • Personal achievement system: 3.20
  • First-person camera view: 3.12
  • Player housing: 3.04

Nice to see those at the very bottom of the list...and in the right order, imho.

  • I hate scenario PVP.
  • Absolute open world is a highly over-rated concept... I'd rather not be 15th in line to kill the mob we need to kill.
  • Crafting is a necessary evil I wish wasn't necessary at all.
  • Ganking PVErs is griefing ...get over it: Big difference between a soldier in a battlefield or one in your bedroom while you sleep.... one is war, the other one is called murder.
  • Look at what you started Warhammer Online! I don't want a permanent reminder  that I killed >100 mobs 7 Tuesdays in a row: this ain't baseball.
  • FPCV is for FPS...go play those.
  • Interior decorating just isn't my thing...not that there's anything wrong with that

I am expecting an Elder Scrolls-style game set in an MMO environment: 38%

Then I am expecting alot of people to be disapointed.

If you only look at this survey, any AD aligned player will be in demand.

I have to say, I didn't enjoy their looks in Skyrim as much as I did in the previous games. Their personality is a ugly trait too. But I always thought if you were going to go for magic, then Atmer was the way to go considering the + Magicka bonus. 

 

I'm also an idiot for saying the Altmer is my favorite class.(instead of race)
