@ZOS_GinaBruno In Cyrodiil we get to see 1, 2, 3 bars or locked. Can you share with us how many players each bar is?

    I always thought it was 200 players per faction maximum

    Not only that, but I think they fiddle with the numbers a lot more than we think.

    I thought it was 200 players per faction. So with that i'm assuming:

    0 bar <50
    1 bar 50-99
    2 bar 100-149
    3 bar 150-199
    Pop locked = 200 (Then theres a queue)

    We (several members on the forums) have requested an answer to this question before, but ZOS has not replied with anything close to even an answer.
    I believe that the numbers are no where near equal, even at the pop locked and queuing stage. Fear that the lowest population faction will either quit pvp altogether or move to a server where there is a more equal population, appears (imo) to be the driving factor.
    Pvp in this game has been steadily losing players for various reasons and an accounting of the actual numbers may be detrimental to the whole. Also, an actual verification of the numbers participating in pvp may not be a good business decision.
    I would like to have some sort of answer/reassurance that the populations are equal at least at the pop locked level.

    Maybe each alliance needs to line everyone up and get them to count off.

    Yeah, that should work.

    At one point, I was under the impression that Campaigns allowed like 500 per alliance, but that was a long time ago, in an entirely different version of ESO. BL. Before Lag.

    I have never seen 0 bar? Is it even possible?

    Initially it was like 2000 people per campaign right?

    Thinking about it, this game is the only one i can think of i have played that pvp has got worse every update...

    From pvp with several times the max amount and no lag to pvp with several times less players with forever lag basically.

    The balance seems to have gotten worse each update anyway.

    @leepalmer95 I believe it was 500x500x500. 1500 per campaign initially.

    I'm not sure but I think 50-75 is one bar .. I play on Had so ... I see that alote... last night we had around 25 people in 1 spot and we were still 1 bar... with only 3 keeps and no towns occupied and IC totally red...Red was 3 bars... so I really have no clue per speculation at this point...

    The strange thing is on pc when you use controller ui the population shows up as one bar less compared to pc. 3 bars on normal UI becomes 2 bars with controller ui etc.
