i think IMO the population is slowly starting to balance out. i honestly cant rmemeber last time i zoned into CS and there was 1000000000 albs shouting LFG like ther eused to be . ussually at CS now there is maybe 2-3 groups rebuffing .. 10 or so soloers and maybe cple small grps trying fill spots...
but i think the alb zerg is definatly shrinking... whilst hibs seems to be growing (IMO from seeing them in rvr) and mids are about same as always been. IMO wont be to long before i reckon before hibs will have more rvr active players than mid/alb. IMO (i mostly on during daytime tho)
50 organised, non afk, well playing ppl are equal to 200ppl that are semi afk, running arround trying to hit every thing to get some rp's.
mids can be very organised aswell, but they only listning to one guy named ardamel, rest of the ppl that try to take leadership when arda isn't online can usually FO even if they try hard and have good idea's plans.
like 1 fg took some towers for fun, shot a hole in notts, and we took it in the end with about 2 fg. you really can't judge realm population on how many people play a bit before work/school at ~9-10 am
yesterday when albs took a crau tower there was fucking millions of them swarming around, as soon as a mid or hib showed their face in the area a big carpet of bloodthirsty leech horny warders rolled out from the hill steamrolling anything and everything in the area
you're biased as hell, which is okay, but no need to show it to other people
any1 with 1/2 a brain can figure out that the proportion of rpts earnt from a smaller realm is gonna be bigger in comparision to their population, while the reverse will be true of the overpopulated realm. simply because hib/mid's got more people to kill and they win most evenly matched fights, partly cuz alot of albs still run around in epic and get farmed.
mids heavily outnumbered us at nott whole morning, god nott did look like a cheese with 4 holes in wall, all siege batlements destroyed even the inner fort was destroyed (no oil) - id suggest u a) place ur fops/support in more secure points b) move away from pbaoe/nukelos <3
made 50k duoing with slasha xD fun fun ;p~ then more ppl logged on and filled up and more fun roaming the zone! giv servers up :e
