I personally am magnetically attracted to the Dominion and I can’t fully explain why. Have you guys noticed any particular traits or patterns exhibited by each alliance, inlduding the Aldmeri Dominion. I find Daggerfall players to be kind of serious and very organized. I can’t quite put my finger on the Ebonheart Pact yet.
Any insights or observations would be great to hear. Thanks.

I always find that the Ebonheart Pact are ballsier. They are usually the last to run away. As you said I also find the Daggerfall to be more cautious. It is strange and as you said i think there deffinatley are patterns. I’m also a console player so i dunno how it pans out on pc. As for the Dominion, i find them to just hoard the map, there always seems to be more dominion players than others.
Thank you for discussing and providing some observation. Mine were coming as a PC player on ESO, but all my previous experience was console prior to ESO.

EP: Was the original sit for edgy kids that only played Skyrim and wanted to be badass, because well, EP has the most savage combination or races. As the thing didn´t go well for kiddies, it settled as a Dunmer-loving-faction that does a lot of roleplaying about it. In the beginning they had the strength of the numbers for sure, Cyrodiil was theirs. I haven´t gone that far into EP questlines, but I feel they´re more desperate than the other factions.
DC: This one has the least appeal of them all. Apart from a brief period at the very beginning, when Bretons were the most popular pick (this was before the beta, so no point saying they were ever actually popular), DC has been always the least populated of the factions. Orc must be by far the rarest race, and I think I´ve seen the most of cross-faction races here. Cautious you can call them, I say they´re just not enough as to be cocky in Cyrodiil, hence the “caution”. I get this constant feeling of “diplomacy” that makes me feel uncomfortable in the quests.
AD: I don´t know how it became the most popular faction, but anyway, people here have this optimism… this sense of “superiority” that you get when you play along with the arrogant Altmer. Its contagious. Of course, you can get that optimisim from anyone anywhere, but at least the way the quests work here make you feel you are working towards a greater good. In the beginning people said that the Thalmor had given it too much of a bad fame and only edgy teenagers would play it, but I knew they were wrong, and I think I never met one of those, and I play since beta.
Great post @Thuring and you make some great observations. I agree with you totally about the Dominion and I think contagious is a great word to use. Agree with you as well on the DC for the most part.

I also agree with @Thuring, more players seem to join the Dominion for some reason, I know Im one of those.

I started with EP as I always play as a Nord. Turns out that most of the guild I joined are AD so I switched over. Must say that I much prefer the forest landscape in AD compared to EP.

I always thought that EP was actually the most populated, and AD is actually more organized. Don’t know too much about DC, but from what I’ve seen, they have some really good fighters.
Anywho, I don’t know why I am pulled towards the Aldmeri Dominion. I do like elves, I do like Kate Beckinsale, and I do like a cohesive storyline. The scenery and the floral/avian motifs also draw me to AD. Perhaps there is a certain feminine beauty to it that makes it relatable to me. Who knows?
