Though I see your point, and its a shame that people are so vain as to ONLY make chars that are of the "pretty races" so stuff like Altmer, and some of the humans.

Most races are ugly, especially the dark elves


Yeah . . . many Altmer aren't really that "pretty" by conventional standards- too pointy. Bosmer are a little better, but can still look weird. And dark elves- it's pretty hard to find an attractive dark elf, between the eyes and the brow. Although Zenimax's graphics might "improve" them a bit.

Really the only conventionally attractive ones are the races of men. (Because we needed more nords and bretons . . . sigh. Although more redguards wouldn't be bad.)

Yes we already have way too many, "Dovakiin" and "ezio leet Breton assassins"

The whole "Breton rogue" thing is a bit odd, really. The only explanation I've come up with is that between the three pacts and the three play styles, EP/warrior and AD/mage were already taken, leaving only DC/rogue. And of course we have to pick the white human for the trailer . . .

Yeah, notice how their were no Orcs or Redguards shown?
Its just the typical thing of "people always chose *ninjas* and races they relate to"
Its a shame it really is...


Like with the Thalmor in Skyrim...that made ALOT of people not want to play AD.

DC people tend to chose DC just because they have, the "best" racials, in single player TES games, and want that "superiority"

EP...Skyrim Nord newbs...and people wanting to make "beautiful WoW dark elves" and Argonians....I don't know anymore...

Ebonheart Pact is the most unstable. You have a drunken human leading an army of lizards, and elves that picked the wrong side.

The truth is, because of the past, we humans CANNOT trust you High Elves. The reason why the Ebonheart pact is winning is because mainly, the Nords want to keep the power in the hands of humans. In the moments of slavery, Akatosh himself helped humans defeat the Daedra worshiping Ayleids. As for the tower of White-gold, it was build on Imperial and Nordic blood, therefore it is more human than Ayleid. You lost it in a fair battle between the king of Ayleids, Umaril and the Divine Crusader, Pelinal.

You are not the underdogs, you are dirty elves that tricked the Khajiit into being in a team with you. What underdog means is the something is expected to lose, but turns up winning. If anything I would think tht the DC are underdogs. But I doesn't matter because we know what happens :D

Your only argument against s seems to be the Ayleids, but you do not appear to understand that Ayleid and Altmer cultures where very different. The Ayleids started off as settlers from Alinor and where Vassals of The High King of Alinor, making the Heartlands of Cyrodiil, the Altmer place of arrival to Cyrodiil, was 'Tribute-land' to Summerset. But due to the distance and communication difficulties with far-away Alinor, the Altmer colonists were forced to survive alone and as their communications with Alinor where essentially severed and established the White-Gold Tower as an independent City-state. From what we know, The White-Gold Tower was either already built by then, afterall the Isles of Lake Rumare were already given to the early Aldmer in the Time of Topal the Pilot. The settlement of White-Gold Tower had already existed based around the ancient Aldmer Tower, then known as the Temple of the Ancestors. The Altmer colonists who arrived to the Heartlands settled there aswell and based themselves on the 'City Isle' of Lake Rumare and set up the White-gold tower settlement as an Independent City State and future centre of their Empire. These settlers over time and with the growth of their Domain developed into the Ayleids, or Heartland High Elves, after the original Colonists, and formed their own distinct magical culture. Only later when the Ayleids had too few elves to expand their lands further and set up even more cities in the more distant parts of now-day Cyrodiil did they begin to make pacts and deals with the Daedra in order to acquire massive, powerful armies of Daedra that served under them and allowed for the stretching of the Ayleid domain to the North and the enslavement of the Proto-Cyrodiiliac peoples. Then a long time after that the Genocide of the Falmer by the Atmoran Nords inspired the slaves of Cyrodiil to take advantage of the huge Civil war that split the Ayleid Empire into pieces, of warring city-states across Cyrodiil fighting eachother with Daedric armies... The City of White-Gold was rather neutral in this multi-state Conflict and fell easily and by surprise to the slaves who thus started the Alessian Slave rebellion...

You humans are so upset about our notion of superiority over you, yet you still persist in attempting to demonize any Elven race and its doings...

No underdogs as of now. It comes down to which side will have the most skilled players or what faction some of the better guilds choose to call home. The numbers atm suggest something, but not much.


Be guided by the Hand of Justice or be Crushed by the Fist of the Tribunal.

The reason that the EP has a lot of Nords is Skyrim fan-boys Sick

From a lore perspective, yes. However, these are actual players controlling characters. You're not going to have thousands of druken people playing this game.

A lot of people are actually deterred by the Altmer. Bosmer and Khajiit may be their favored races, but they may want nothing to do with the Altmer and pick another faction.

My thoughts exactly. :)
