    I'm a lizard

    I feel for you...

    Guys, I've been crying with laughter for hours. This is the most exotic forum in the world - there are lizards, worms, mice and even one Neanderthal. This forum is Warhammer himself.

    The High Elves are the most popular faction in the game. Even the Wood Elves were able to bypass the Empire, what are you talking about? Study the statistics.

    I referred to the poll ... even if there are more up-to-date polls claiming like you, it could be because other races have received a lot of DLC'S, unlike Empire, so other factions have become more popular, for now.

    No poll has shown HE as favourite, he's referring to Steam achievements. These, of course, only show that the HE and WE have the easiest campaigns in the game.

    What poll? In Steam there are statistics for the completion of the campaign. CA has officially stated that the High Elves are the most popular faction in the game. Tyrion top 1, Imrik top 2.

    Steam single player campaign completion statistics

    High Elves 14.5%
    Wood Elves 4.7%
    Empire 4.5%

    Local polling is invalid. We have game statistics from all licensed players. The most popular race is Elves and everyone wants to play as Elves.

    According to a Veresh clone that got banned some time ago very shortly after creating his account, girls like to play lizardmen and skaven because "they like cute animals". Veresh even made up a poll that he supposedly carried out (he claimed to have interviewed like a few hundred players just by walking around the city) to support these 'results'.

    Fun times.

    I'm shocked that more than 80% of the player base would rather play any race beside the elves. Thank you for getting us this data

    Just as point of clarification, I have no opinion one what factions are or are not poplar, but if CA's TWW2 stats are presented the same way they did with TWW1, then it is in no way an accurate measurement of popularity.

    They likely tallied every campaign ever played which means that some factions have multi years head starts over others. The numbers will always be inaccurately skewed towards whatever factions were included since launch. This is made worse by the fact that some faction have a higher bar or entry than others. If a player wants to play Beastmen in Warhammer 2 they need to own three separate products. If they want to play high elves they only need 1.

    HAHAHA VERESH TALKING TO SOMEONE STUDY STATISTICS

    Really? tell me what is a confidence interval Veresh?

    If you really know how statistcs work, than you know why steam archievements are not valid, and in that case you are just spreading lies.
    Just as planned

    Most players start with the 'vanilla race' because they (correctly) assume that it will be the easiest and most intuitive way to get into that new game and understand it.

    After that, players move on to other races. But the thing is that a huge portion of players do not play a game for a very long time. They play only a few campaigns, maybe even just one. Many players will pick the vanilla race multiple times to first understand the game better before they move on, but many of them will lose interest in the game before they ever get that far.

    In WH1 that vanilla race was Empire. In WH2 there was no human race available at release, and High Elves are the next-closest thing.

    CA has said many times that the High Elves are the best, accept the truth.

    The Empire has this indicator, according to your logic, 95%
