Not sure if this is the right place to ask but I figured this is the place where ppl would be most likely to have an opinion, so what do you imagine the population of Tyria to be? Is your opinion pretty much just a guess or do we have information on anet regarding this? I'm not sure what made me wonder but I've been thinking about it for a few days now . . .
If you just count up everyone you see, even including unnamed npcs you'd only get maybe a few thousand individuals. Counting residences even in DR which I'd guess looks the most densely populated you've only got maybe a few hundred homes? I've always thought of the cities as more representative than literal but idk what numbers they are supposed to be representing . . .
Anyway, I'm just curious . . .
