Do you think the races inside the alliances can still change?

I made this topic because EP has nearly two times the player number the others alliances have.
And let's say it, argonian dunmer and nord can't be allied unless you ignore the lore.

Do you think there is still a chance they will exchange one of EP races with one in the other alliances?

They have already explained why the Alliance work, granted the Ebonheart Pact is a lot more unstable then the other alliances but they're not going to fall apart after day one. So I don't think you need to worry about anything, Zenimax Online got it all covered.

It is a little unfortunate.

Of course they can. The enemies of my enemies are my friends. First those enemies were the Akaviri, now its the Dominion and the Covenant. At the end of the day no one in the Pact likes each other, the lore says as much, and if there was no one left to fight they'd probably fall apart without the outside pressure. But so long as they all keep feeling threatened they'll keep hanging out on their porches with their proverbial shotguns.

Nah. Aside from messing up the whole alliance 'home slice' of Tamriel they've made it'd be too much work to go back and redo the zone flow, quest dialog, voice acting etc... For better or worse the factions are set.

People will play alts too, these are just the preferences for the main characters. The faction locked zones also encourage the creation and playing of alts.

The good part of the three faction model is that it will balance the RvR, so no unstoppable WAR-style zergs either.

Also to add more to the topic the borders of these races are connected, hence a capable alliance due to not having to cross enemy territory. Also as the lore states within the past 20 years the Argonians suffered from a plague and Morrowind was invaded by the Akavir. So with this information it would be smarter for them to ally with the Nords who have been gathering their strength for over 2,000 years.

definitley a no. they got all the assets done, in fact one of the early game informer interviews made it clear that the factions were the first thing that was decidet upon.

and honestly i cant be happier about them. They fit together niceley, like it or not. Yess its curious that the all the realy popular races are on EP. But still anything else would make even less sense. Its also nice that all the races that were important during Daggerfall are actually in the same Faction.

the discussion wether or not EP breaks the lore is older than this forum. And it has been discussed in 5 threads so far. Please not another one. we ususally come to the conclusion that the EP is the only possible way for this to play out. The Argonians for example would not ally with any other faction. They hate the kahjiit, and they do not border on any other playable province. the dunmer hate the aldmer and the orcs and the nord have had wars with the bretons and redguards for centuries.

while the EP races have eben infighting for the whole time. they have also been exposed to each others cultures ALOT. Almost every single of the EP factions once was controlling a province or parts of a province from another EP faction. They are culutrally the most overlapping factions dispite beeing also the most different ones. Its a curious mix.

And way more interresting than for example having a Nord, Orc and Breton boredom faction. Or a Kahjiit , Argonian furry faction.


Bormir you also misunderstood the knahathan flu. the argonians didnt suffer from it. They benefitted from it. The flu killed all non argonians in the black marsh, the argonians are well. They are in the Alliance because of the Akavirii Invasion on the east coast that has hit Skyrim, Morrowind and Black Marsh simultaniously.

Races hate each other...All 9 races want to control the world...It would not surprise for me, but i must admit AD is the safest alliance than DC or EP (worstest). Hirr hirr...

Not control world, just imperial city to get the damn dragonfires burning again

Middle of the World, of course, but they allow to feel to do this, conquer world - It is just dream!

Many pvpers want to do own way = Kill of Sight > then one poor player: Hey my name is...ANGR! *Dead*

Hard to make greetings than own faction zones, is easy. Heh.

You're right. Didn't look close enough at the Lore haha. Honestly I think an expansion should have Akavir, Dwemer, and Falmer alliance... Just for kicks and giggles.

I find the alliances to be very well supported by lore, and while my faction (guess which) is the most unstable, it by no means is in danger of collapsing.

Nords and Dunmer have fought forever -- one could even call them blood enemies. But who is better to stand at your side in battle than those who have not fallen before you and whom you have struggled against for generations.

Their geographic location is very conducive to the alliance. Now the Argonians, being former slaves, seem the most likely to bail. But if we assume that they were offered freedom with a certain degree of formality and respect, then I think lore gives them a strong foundation too.

I agree. I support the decision to only pick the primary races we've been familiar playing as for the past decade and a half.

Man and Mer. All we need. Oh and the Cats and Geckos. They can come too.
