When Warhammer Online
releases later this year do you think there will be a skewed realm population? The GREENSkin blog
seems to think so, but history would disagree with them. Whenever a game has been faction-based the "evil" races tend to be popular during the beta period
. This fear of imbalance was a issue in Dark Age of Camelot
and in World of Warcraft
. During both of those instances beta testers expressed worry that the more evil of the realms would be entirely overpopulated post launch. However, the exact opposite happened to the complete befuddlement of beta testers everywhere.
