I’m not saying that this is a bad thing at all, I actually really enjoy playing the under populated realm in RvR for many reasons.
Mostly because you just feel better about yourself and your realm when you capture something, or win in an open field fight. Sometimes the under populated realm will get nice rewards like exp or extra money. Also you can always find a fight (when I played Albion it would take a long time to actually find someone to kill, but when I switched to Hibernia I had the pick of the crop).
So who do you think will be the under populated realm?
Most Populated: Ebonheart. This is a no brainer, the Ebonhart have the two most nostalgic territories in the game which is Skyrim and Morrowind. Lots of elder scroll players might be attracted to this faction in order to explore that places that they have played in other Elder Scrolls games. Also this faction has the Nord race, which on many different polls is the top 2 of the most sought after race.
Medium Population: Aldmeri. I know this will be a popular faction and could very well be the big power house realm. The Aldmeri have 2 of the most popular races according to many polls, the High Elfs and Wood Elfs. Archery has been a really popular mechanic in the Elder Scrolls games and I know Zeni hasn’t said much in the way of racial benefits, but if they do have them we all know Wood Elfs will be the best archers. In ES lore the Aldmeri is also considered the "good guys", which I know always brings in a lot of numbers.
Low Population: That of course leaves the Daggerfall. why? The Daggerfall holds 2 of the least desired races on the polls, the Bretons and the Orcs. I also hear a lot of people calling the realms lore the "least interesting" compared to the other two.
I of course am torn between Ebon and the Dagger, but if one realm is considered low pop it will probably persuade me to go with that one.
