A Matter of Factions

Faction & Race:
Daggerfall Covenant (Orc)
I feel many people chose a faction due to their preference in races (Hence the popularity of EP). I am creating this topic to discuss why we chose our respective factions.

Did you make the choice by race or by faction-doctrine?

Would you join a different faction if you were able to retain your favored race?

Myself, I based myself on the doctrine of the factions. Then, from there, chose my favored race. I agree with the ideas and principles of the Daggerfell Covenant and chose to side with them. From there, I thought of the three respective races and chose my favored of the three, an Orsimer.

Honestly, my favored races take rank in the following order
  • Argonian
  • Khajiit
  • Orsimer
  • Bosmer
  • Dunmer
  • Breton
  • Redguard
  • Imperial
  • Nord
  • Altmer

How do you rank the races?

Simple, many of the GW2 WvW guilds are rolling Daggerfall covenant. We like being the underdogs and smashing everyone.

My choice was by Race. It certainly would be interesting to have a couple of the races that could exist in any three of the Factions.

No one wants us to have our own home :( Oh well, I'll just move into your territory, raid your villages and move on to the next province...quite a life lol!

As far as ranking races by favor, it would look something like this:

Orsimer
Redguard
Khajiit
Breton
Nord
Argonian
Altmer
Dunmer
Bosmer
Imperial

Oh, right. I completely forgot that other forces may have influence people's decision making, such as a bias to play the underdog or the topdog. Thanks for making that point.

Faction & Race:
Ebonheart Pact
Nord
I have been a Nord since Morrowind, and kind of would rather be in the DC for the landscape, but want to stay loyal to my play style (even know I guess eventually I will have alts).
I think many people are in the EP because of the release of skyrim, and either familiar with the land or choosing Nord.

well. my favorite three races are in the pact.
its not realy a tough descision there. But i supose id be pissed if argonians and nord would be in different factions. as they tend to be the only races i ever play. with slight exceptions from time to time.

I tend to start my ES games with a Redguard character, so I was leaning toward that. When I first arrived to the forum and started chatting people up I immediately made friends with a lot of the DC people, the friendships I made solidified my choice for the faction. At the moment I'm still thinking Redguard, but Orc is also a strong choice for me. So I have left my race as "undecided".

Edit: And would you know, a couple hours later I actually decided. Redguard it is!

  • Bosmer
  • Dunmer
  • Nord
  • Altmer
  • Argonian
  • Breton
  • Imperial
  • Redguard
  • Orsimer

The thing that spurred this thread because of the Faction/Race count on the homepage of TESOF. AD and DC are close in count, but EP's count is nearly both AD's and DC's member count put together. I already thought Nords and Dunmeri were extremely popular; seeing these counts, I inferred that people were joining factions based on which race the favored. So far, the polls are showing my hypothesis to be true, haha. It is very interesting. Plus, it is a lot of fun to hear people's methods as some are outside the realms of the poll. That, and seeing how the races stack up for each member is interesting, too. Thanks to everyone who has responded so far, and I look forward to viewing all future posts as well.

  • Dunmer
  • Argonian
  • Kahjiit
  • Orsimer
  • Nord
  • Bosmer
  • Breton
  • Redguard
  • Altmer

If I could choose which faction I could join regardless of race, I would probably go for the AD. But that might just be because I don't like being part of the majority in MMORPG's.
