My question comes with 3 points, we choose who we want to rule us all, right?

1. Does it give the ruler special powers or should they just be the fool on a chair?
2. Do you get special areas for your race, resources that are rare and special?
- This comes from another mmo called RF Online aka Rising Force Online -
3. Will there be a Trade System behind the Leadership?

In RF Online you got a Political System.

Each race is led by the archon, a player voted into power by other players. Below the archon are four councillors. These councillors are determined based on the number of votes received during their run for archonship. Archon positions last one week, at the end of which voting will commence again.

I mean there is no real point in becoming some because they pointed at you *sucker*, I just hope they come up with something bigger.


Please be Careful who you drink with, they could be holding a Slave Collar behind them..

We don't choose who becomes emperor/empress:

"The highest-ranking player of an alliance is crowned Emperor when their alliance takes control of the Imperial City".

So I could imagine that that the title could switch within often factions as well the alliances.

no.

The Emporer is chosen by steel and fire alone.
Taken by force, from those that are too weak to carry the Crown.

a republic is a state form for civilized times.
In these Savage years of the Interregnum, rule is issued to the strong. By themselves.

Yup.

This isn't your mama's empire. If you want the seat, you take it, you don't make friends.

I agree. This should be a much better system than other Political systems. Those usually fail in MMOs because the "votes" are rigged. The winner is usually just the leader of the largest guild. And usually has no idea whatsoever on how to govern or lead. Emperor should be more than a popularity contest, or the person that can muster the largest guild.

Its an Empire, not a Democracy. You dont get votes, you rise to power under your own abilities and prowess. You earn it in blood and sweat, fighting the war, fighting for your Alliance, not handing out Fliers in every village you plunder.

It still worries me, under that system, that die-hard troll players will become Emperor. From which, if they any power over players, it'll be 100% troll-dome. . >.>

Not saying I would be a good emperor, just that I'm sure we'll have some reeeaaally sucky ones from time to time lol.

I'd rather have some shitty emperors once in a while then the same emperor voted in every time. It also kinda pushes you to try better in PvP to become the emperor. Also seeing how there will probably be many ways to earn alliance points in Cyrodiil, the Emperor would have most likely earned it.

If the Emperor is a part of a guild, do you think that the guild leader will use this person as a puppet?

Considering that all we know is that it's just a title, I doubt it.

It's not just a title. You get perks. However we don't know what said perks will be.

I believe its from the intro to teso vid. They said they are "thinking" about giving the emperor special powers or a stat boost. Nothing is confirmed.

The things I think being Emperor should reward: (The prestige system and alliance ranks/icons are confirmed)
* Alliance Points
* PvP progression xp(there will be a ranks system kinda like CoD prestige system,)
* Unlock the final rank for earning(you can earn ranks in pvp and you get a special faction icon displaying your rank next to your name.)
* Achievement
* Minor stat boost for duration of being emperor(so you'll be a little harder to kill)
* passive buff that applies to nearby allies (kinda like the buffs in GW2 +70 toughness to nearby allies) If it were to turn out to be OP then scrap the idea.

Quote:Alliance Ranks

* Alliance points accumulate through killing enemies and taking objectives in Cyrodiil. This constitutes an alternate advancement system through which the player can earn Alliance Ranks. There are 23 ranks planned for launch, although this number is subject to change. (TF1)

* Players will be able to spend Alliance Points on gear and character upgrades. The details of this system are still undergoing development and balancing.

OH look at the whining.
"troll emporer" what?
What do you want to compare the Hardcores now? The Jocks who bullied you in school and got all the chicks?

Since when are we pouring down on people that show commitment?
Power to the casuals? i think not!

If you cannot take the Throne by force, you dont deserve it!
And if you think some random kid can lead a successfull PVP guild please say so, because then id have one more reason to laugh at you.

Well, I remember them saying something about everyone in the winning alliance getting a bonus, not the Emperor himself.
Also, I'm pretty sure neither of those will let you be able to use the Emperor as a puppet.
