Who would get to Cyrodill first?

The Aldmeri, Ebonheart or the Daggerfall?.

In my opinion the Aldmeri would be the first, they could strike through the Hibonay (?) valley to the shore and send a monumentally large fleet to the small island where the Imperial City lays.

I totally think the Ebonheart would be the last. There goal isn't even to take the tharns out, just to stop Molag Bal's plot to dominate all life (right?) not to mention the potentially intense political infighting and backstabbing that would be going on while they were mustering/marching to Cyrodill no?.

What's your opinion on this, eh? :).

EP is pretty united in their decision to stop Mannimarco and Molag Bal, and to prevent the domination of its member regions. I doubt much faction infighting will go on in the EP, though it is a possibility. I think it will be much like we saw in the trailer, all of the factions fighting imperials thinking they were the only attackers, and then finding the other two factions are there too.

I'd say ebonheart, as they would break though the imperial defense easier with the large border they share. The imperials will either be spread thin or leave gaps in the border.

Despite being a loyal member of the Dominion, I agree with @Dragonchris on this.

Not that I have a problem with the Pact being first; let the ranks thin out. >;3


By arrow. By blade.
By tooth. By claw.
By shock. By frost. By flame.
The Aldmeri Dominion will dominate Tamriel.
Our enemies will fall until the Throne is ours.

Don't hate just appreciate!
But, lol. I think we Ebonhearts are mostly going to be focusing on the issue, something about world destruction, while you guys make the forts on Cyrodiil weaker, we can save the world and get some cheap shots on y'all :S

I've changed to the Ebonheart, not many major imperial cities in there corner and i do believe the imperial line is pretty thin.
Nords could just smash right through the border and with momentum continue to Bruma, while the attacks by the Dumner and ambushes by the Argonians would force imperial attention elsewhere, giving them time to burn Bruma to the ground and continue to the heart of Cyrodill.

Hell they may have never gotten the word out that a Nord army was marching to Bruma (if t'was needed to stop Molag Bal ofc), and the Daggerfall would keep a great amount of imperial attention away while the armies of the pact come to the Doorstep of the Tharns.

Oh and i believe the Daggerfal would be the last :)

Ebonheart pact because they will have the most players. But this can also mean they will be last because of to many noobs will scare off other better players to the other two alliance's

That actually makes a lot of sense. The Pact is, "Aw, sh¡t! We gotta stop Molag Bal!" the Covenant is, "'Kay, we gotta set this up right," and the Dominion is, "Nah, man; we gonna own all dat sh¡t!" XD

I apologize for the ghettospeak; I live in the city. :P

In other words, the Pact is more focused on stopping Molag, whereas the other factions focus on taking control of the Empire.

They are basically killing there kinsmen anyway.

Imperials are also descended from the nedic peoples, but yeah what i said does not make alot of sense.

They'd take take the city if it was necessary to take a huge dump on Mofag bal or Mannimarco

You must excuse me for my naiveity, i seem to have been rushing opinion.

There seems to be only one major city in the direct route to the imperial city from the lands of the covenant. Other then that, it seems to be a cake walk, since those pesky elves will take quite the amount of attention.

Looking at maps of the Faction's lands I'm pretty sure that either we of the Covenant, or the Aldmeri Dominion will be the first group to gain entrance to Cyrodil (by force of course). This is due to the fact that those two factions have a smaller territory, thus a denser dungeon/land ratio. That is assuming they give each Faction the same amount of enemies to fight, and dungeons to dive into. So we won't have to travel as far to get places thus allowing more time leveling, and less time traveling. As you can only enter Cyrodil when you're level 15 or so (as stated by the developers) leveling will be key in taking Cyrodil. Since those two factions will level faster than the people in the Pact, which has a huge land mass, then the EP is doomed to be last to shoe up to what will certainly be a primarily AD vs. DC conflict. Sorry to break it to you people who still haven't gotten over Morrowind, and Skyrim, which were both great games, but geographicaly and Dungeon/land ratio wise the Ebonheart Pact is the worst faction choice.
