Hi i'm trying to find a pvp sever where the alliance and horde population is as close to 50:50 as I can.
What do you guys think is the faction population of this sever
Also how is the overall population
I would your greatest apprication if you tell me.
it used to be horrible for the allies here, but looking at census data from before the addon throttling blizzard implemented, it showed a shift towards slight a bit more ACTIVE allied 80s vs horde.
Looking at raw numbers, horde out numbers allies, but its mostly just alts.
to sum it up:
Peak hours, allies outnumber horde, off hours, horde outnumbers allies.
This all changes though in the months to come, Worgen will create many more alliance imo, just as blood elves created many more horde. So you really cant say who will outnumber who
Just realized that the ltest post on this thread is a week old. BUT, since it's Tues. morning perhaps you'll be reading it.
Cesus data for WoW ( like for the US) is spotty at best. The ratio of Horde V Ally swings too wildly to be considered accurate at all. It might be more reliable if Blizz chose to post official stas. Perhaps they do somewhere, but I've never seen it.
In truth, all you can do is rely on personal observations. Here are mine.
WG. It used to be a great indication of server pop. If one side consistantly had large stacks of tenacity, it was a good bet that they were lower pop than their opposition. On good ol Shattered Lawls, Ally fighting in WG was akin to being a French resistance fighter in WWII. Now that WG has been forcebly balanced, it's not so easy to tell ( though we do win alot more often).
Questing in Cata Leveling Zones. I only dinged 83 last night so I can't say for certain about the other zones, but in most cases there are far more horde in the zone than there are allies. For the most part everyone seems to have adopted a "live and let live" approach. This changes when an 85 of either side comes to play. All of the sudden people become brave. Imagine that. :)
Word to the wise here. Being 85 does NOT make you all powerful against lower 80s who are questing / leveling. Two days ago ( at 82) I got jumped by an 85 shammy. I downed him twice before he left for greener pastures. He should be ashamed because I'm terribad.
So, in closing? Most of the time it SEEMS like there are more high lvl horde than alliance in any given area. Not always, but most of the time. Personally I believe this will change. Someone mentioned Worgen and Blood Elves. Blood elves make up a very large % of the horde population. I believe that before long Worgen will become their Ally counterparts. And I'd be willing to bet that most of the new toons being rolled in the last week are worgen.
