Getting double ap

I’m on Xbox NA and today while in Cyrodiil in Vivec my friends and I were receiving double ap for some reason. Is there some sort of event on that I’ve missed? It wasn’t just when taking keeps, resources and killing people, it was also when handing in the repeatable quests.

    Low pop bonus maybe? It grants double AP bonus (in addition to increased scoring).

    I thought it was only a 20% increase?

    20% is the hour long AP buff you get from killing a delve boss in Cyrodiil, if you are getting double AP it is from a low population bonus.

    Also if your alliance holds the outlying keeps that's a 8% gain each.

    Also had you been on that toon in a while? Perhaps you had the mid year buff running?

    20% is the hour long AP buff you get from killing a delve boss in Cyrodiil, if you are getting double AP it is from a low population bonus.

    From uesp.net: “At certain times, one of the alliances may qualify for an "underdog bonus" during a particular campaign. These are applied when an alliance has a consistently low population of players entering that campaign, or if an alliance has a significantly lower score than the others. Underdog bonuses are re-evaluated every 30 minutes, and grant a 20% increase to Alliance Point gain for the duration.”

    Is this not correct?

    No, I’m on the toon daily.

    At the time it was correct but it has since been updated. The current low pop bonuses give about double AP (give or take, it's not exactly double). Low score bonus does similar. You can check if these are active on the scoring screen for your campaign. Definitely fun to take advantage of:

    Yep, it's the only upside in our campaign right now, unless you dig 3vxing the massive EP and AD zergs. It's made it pretty boring in there, tbh.

    what specifically constitutes a low pop bonus? i have been wondering this for a few weeks now. a simple 1 bar vs 3 v3bar does not do it

    It has to be lower pop compared to the other factions for like 3 consecutive hours I think.
