    It is just sad that they can not balance the pops. For several hours of the day they can be balanced, but they tilt out of balance far too often for anyone to care about the map anymore. The worst part is the mechanic intended to balance the pops made them worse. It was locked EP, 2 bar AD, 3 bar DC. Yet our group of 10 was the largest opposition that most of the EP faction had to face at a DC scroll gate, and of course they had so many people they wanted to run 2 scrolls at once.

    Those weren't "zergs" though. They were "24 man tactical divisions". Only EP zergs.

    yeah. that's the thing. Right now we have the entire map on lock in Azura. and where is DC?, Memorial district that's where. We have the map because we take it and like one person comes to try and stop us. even when the other factions have the population to try and stop us more often then not, they don't.

    Well if yellow brings 24 to a fight you all know red will bring 48 at least. The red Zerg in the video is at least 60 people, the largest group on AD is HK and they will run 24, but you all know red will just get two 24 man groups to trample them anyways xD

    AD and DC never bring any pugs with their guild groups. Pugs usually stand behind the guild group and wait for their turn to engage into any fight.

    Actually, many AD PUGs are quite happy to sit back and wait for their turn to stand in a breach instead of doing something like...placing siege, healing others, or going through said breach to where there isn't oil being dropped on them.

    So Telel thinks you at least made one correct statement.

    sooo damn borkd they take two scrolls at once and dance one of them around in the open so the remaining zerg can farm kills on anyone who tries to intercept.

    So what's the workaround you ask? All I see are former DC people I used to play with now showing up in EP and AD. Problem solved... LOL!

    It disgusts me.

    Normal day in Cyrodiil. I might be subjective but EP has the largest potential to form zergs. Somehow they have gotten everyone join their quest for glory. Well, at times every faction has done the same. Nothing new. Anyways, I don´t get why any EP would get b******t for the obvious fact. it is what it is. Go to AS and expect EP to zerg. There are campaigns with less zergs.

    I don't understand what all the confusion and analysis is about. EP (NA) physically has the highest player population. Simple as that. It's not ZOS's job to curtail where and what alliance people are playing. Fight outnumbered and take with you however many of the ebonfart fact you can to the grave.

    Or here is a thought. How about the outnumbered alliances join one or two campaigns and even the odds. But then you'll possibly whine about queue.

    Everyone wanted gates access to IC, and that campaign sits very empty all day.

    No offense but if TKO was on Azura's for more than last night's finale run...some of us sure didn't see them. Or you need better PR.

    In fact to us in COH it often felt like we were the largest organized (I.E Not a PUG) offensive force for AD throughout much of the last cycle. And we usually run five to eight people...

    Well there was also some group that often seemed to take random keeps way off away from everyone else. But as they never communicated with anyone or really seemed to come help us when the methusablob was real Telel and company just assumed they were newer players doing random capture quests.

    In comparison Telel saw a few appearances from HK, and whomever was using the GG invite string. In fact the latter was the primary reason we tended to have any keeps at all.

    COH was busy defending Roe from blues (lolwtf) and Alessia from reds. By the time COH caught up with scroll they were past Arrius.

    Well Crown runs a guild for all the leaders and key contacts for all the major guilds in AD, and I'm sure there are things like that for EP and DC too.

    Good vid honestly. But seriously, we fight groups of AD/DC that are just as large. So all this about EP being the only one who zergs is just pish-posh.

    I din't think anyone would debate that. I named this "That is a lot of EP" because that was all we really had to say to each other in TS.

    The ultimate problem is the total pool of players over a average 24 hour period. There really is not much to say other than EP has a much greater total pool of players. This means they have some presence 24/7 on any server they populate. This will eventually result in what is seen in this video. A force of players that grossly outnumbers any defenders. Considering we amounted to a speed bump on that EP force imagine we where not there. This essentially means that they just steamrolled through anything in their path with no concern for what was in front of them. This is not pvp, and it does not create good pvp. All it does is drive players away when hard earned progress on the map is washed away with mindless and effort less play.

    All the faction are guilty of this, but with the total population pools this most frequently happens with EP.

    Your perception of populations is skewed as everyone's is.
