I am not "hatin'" on the Nords but why do such a large population of people migrate towards the Nords? What is so special about them?

Probably because Skyrim was the most recent ES game released and it took place in the Nords homeland

Nords are the new 'generic' race, thus most people want to be them.

This has been discussed as much as there are Nord players on this site....which is A-Freakin-Lot.

Anyway, ZOS will do its best to balance out the skill sets, races, and factions. If there are 3 Nords for every 1 Breton, so be it. If the EP population is as big as the AD and DC combined, so be it. I pray ZOS doesn't nerf anything that doesn't need nerfing just to try to balance the factions. Let the players dictate themselves. I trust the ES community could find a balance and manage the game so it would be fun for all.

It's because people feel bad for the Nords because of Skyrim, and they forget TESO is 1000 years before that. The Aldmeri Dominion isn't evil like everyone thinks.
Yes, the Aldmeri Dominion (AD) from Skyrim circa 4E 201 is the scum of Nirn. But what you have to keep in mind, is the AD from this time period is not the one found in TESO which is circa 2E 582. The AD in TESO is the first appearance of the Aldmeri Dominion. It was formed to protect Tamriel from more foolish races. So at heart, the TESO AD is good. When did they turn evil? It all started when Tiber Septim (Talos of Atmora) conquered all of Tamriel in 2E 297 (last year of 2E) and the AD was destroyed. Centuries later, the Thalmor party was given great power on Summerset Isle to fend off the Daedra during the Oblivion Crisis. Because of their success, they were hailed as heroes and were able to take control of Summerset Isle. The Thalmor version of Summerset Isle, called Alinor now, allied with Valenwood. Tesion built for over a century until the Great War began in 4E 171.
So TESO AD (good) is different from Skyrim AD (bad). Point proven.

From Nords point of view. In reality they were rebellious scum who decided to start a civil war with already weakened Empire, who barely managed to to set terms with AD. Keep in mind that these terms included the outlawing of Talos, which all Jaarl's agreed to, in fact. They were all bribed and they all accepted the bribes, and even Ulfric accepted this, as mentioned in the game "The chests of gold did help". So in reality Ulfric is nothing but an power hungry asshole who took advantage of Nords chivalrous nature. And all Stormcloaks his puppets in campaign for Ulfric to take the throne.

So, there you have it.

Ain't we all rebellious scum from time to time?

Nords are one of the two most generic appealing races (besides Bretons). Even without Skyrim most people would flock to them as they are the "puny humanz" in the Ebonheart Pact.
This wouldn't create any form of outcry where it not for most self declared "TES veterans" who are repulsed by the imaginary grey horde of "skyrimbabies" who know nothing more than "I wanna FUS RO DAH!". Those people use every possible occasion to beat the dead horse of "yes, Skyrim featured Nords. Peoples most recent memory of TES are Nords, Dragons and shouting on the top of your lungs".

In my book this is nothing more than bashing to declare oneself a supperior lore buff. Which is hilarious.
