Faction & Race:
Aldmeri Dominion (Khajiit)
One thing I'm surprised about is that the AD isn't the lowest populated group (at least according to this site). I was honestly expecting us to have the lowest because of how the AD is portrayed in Skyrim.

There are 5 things I think that are going for us:

1. We have cat people. Let's be honest, many people will join us just for that.

2. People want to play what they think is the most evil of all the groups (whether this is true or not).

3. Altmer are known to be the best magic users of any other race based on previous games. Many people running a mage character will choose Altmer because they feel they'll have max potential as one.

4. Same as 3, but with Bosmer and archery.

5. All of our area hasn't shown up in previous games. The EP has both Skyrim and Morrowind previously visited. DC has Daggerfall. However, this can work both ways because many people will want to see how their favorite area from previous games used to be.

Why do you think people are drawn to our faction? Please, no "Our races are just naturally better than others" comments. Keep it analytical!

The Covenant will always have the lowest population, no matter how many ninja videos Zenimax decides to throw at us.

I agree, honestly I thought that the ebonheart pact was going to out number the dominion and the covenant combined 2 to 1 but that is clearly not the case. The ebonheart pact and aldmeri dominion are almost neck and neck, with the daggerfell covenant falling slightly behind.

The reason why I joined the aldmeri dominion is because of #3 and I believe that will be the most contributing factor to our numbers.

For those who actually know the Lore. A lot of them are gonna come because of the architecture our faction holds. Also we have the most room for expansions, which is absolutely amazing. Many also like to be drug dealers, which in turn lead them to being the sneaky yet ferocious Khajiit's.

Actually, check the enlistment numbers. Khajiits are the least-populated race of the three in the AD if the numbers given by this site are a good indication.

Yeah I actually did see them before and I believe altmer was the top. Really the dominion actually carries 3 solid interesting races as does ebonheart. The imbalance really comes in, atleast from what I think, in that daggerfall is the average human faction and only controls two provinces.

Everyone wants to be an elf. I want to be a vicious cat-man from a Scooby-Doo cartoon.

In my opinion as well I think that the Aldmeri Dominion is the most united of all the factions, I don't really know very much about how the different races past in the Daggerfall Covenant, but they seem like a very strange and unlikely group, and the Ebonheart Pact speaks for itself. If the Ebonheart Pact won the war then all it would do is create another three way war between the Dunmer, Nords and Argonians. The Aldmeri Dominion on the other hand contains two elf races that respect each other, as well as the Khajit who owe the Altmer for curing that sickness.

I think that people who are looking at it from a lore standpoint would probably find that the Aldmeri Dominion is what is best for Tamriel. I don't know how many people would actually bother thinking about this stuff though, since it is just a game, so meh, whatever.

i don't trust elves, so I go with the other faction seeking order. Daggerfall wishes to reestablish a legitimate emperor and rebuild the empire. Think daggerfall works except for the orcs, but I guess they haven't gotten screwed to the point of complete distrust yet.

I see your point, but we elves only have your best interests in mind, unlike the second Aldmeri Dominion our Aldmeri Dominion doesn't hate the races of men, we just constantly see your empires screwing up and destroying each other, so we want to take it back to restore order, not to mention the White-Gold tower was built by the Altmer in the first place, and now the elves are here to take it back :) But whatever, this isn't a thread to argue about which side is the best.

The current aldmeri dominion isn't bad at all, though they are still arrogant. None of the sides are good or evil, just different philosophies. Anyway your right, best not to get off topic.

It's mainly due to no matter what the numbers, the overall result will be pretty much 33/33/33. Take a look at Planetside 2, for example. At this stage people were rioting "It will never balance out!" As it was 50/30/20. Well, now its exactly 33% each.
