EVERYONE TELL ME HOW YOU THINK THIS GAME IS GOING TO BE...

alright so im kind of confused on how this game is going to operate...
im thinking some crazy s#%t

for the wars, is there going to be one emperor for all three Dominion, or covenant, or pact?

can guilds face other guilds within their province and face other guilds in the other provinces?

can someone just please explain this entire game to me.. because im thinking so many things and i just feel like im over exciting myself and giving this game too high of expectations.

"for the wars, is there going to be one emperor for all three Dominion"
So far we know: There will be campaigns that will last 6+ months (its not set in stone yet) during this time player's will gain Alliance Points, at the end of the campaigns the best player, between 3 alliances, will be Selected and Crowned as Emperor, in the mean time "Cyrodill" will take reset (keeps that your Alliance captures will still belong to you), at least this is the stuff we know so far, now i speculate that Emperor will control Imperial city and Other alliance can try to invade it and kill him.

Now this is more complicated to explain since i will need to start with "what is mega server" so let me make it simple, All players from your guild will enter same campaign (lather on you can visit your friends campaign for a cost). Guilds in same alliance cent fight each other, you can only fight enemy guilds in Cyrodill. since they dint reveal much about this yet there are no Solid info about this, mostly rumors and speculation, but the system will be like DaoC.

Other then Cyrodill the rest of the world will work like "Skyrim" but with people playing with you, well at least that is what people who played Beta say. Without actually trying the game i cent tell you if its over hyped or not, but i will play this game for sure, so far its way bather than any current MMO out there.

I'll explain it this way;

I don't play any MMOs, at all. They cost money and time which are resources that are limited to me (well, mostly money :P). I was able to try out TESO at PAX East for a while, and I was IMMEDIATELY able to adapt to the controls based on my understanding of Skyrim.

If you know how to play Skyrim, you can plan TESO;
It's that simple!

Here's an over-simplified way to understand TESO.

You know how checkers & chess pit 2 opponents against each other? And in Chinese checkers up to 5 players can play against each other. For TESO think of a triangle with the winnable area in the middle of them.

The upper left part of the triangle is DC - Daggerfall Covenant faction made of 3 allies - Bretons, Redguards & Orcs.
The upper right part of the triangle is EP - Ebonhart Pact faction made up of 3 allies - Nords, Dunmer & Argonians.
The lower part of the triangle is AD - Aldmeri Dominion faction made up of 3 allies - Altmer, Bosmer & Khajiits.

The 3 factions will war against each other to gain control of the middle which is Cyrodiil, capitol of the someday to be Empire and seat of the Ruby Throne, upon which will sit a victorious Emperor at the end of TESO when one of these factions wins Cyrodiil control. (the game will still continue, but will be very different then, is my guess.)

TESO - - Multiplayer: "M'aiq does not know this word. You wish others to help you in your quest? Coward! If you must, search for the Argonian Im-Leet, or perhaps the big Nord, Rolf the Uber. They will certainly wish to join you." M'aiq the Liar.

"Va Khaj Dar - Khajiity's united? M'aiq will join!" M'aiq the Liar

No there may be multi-Emperors if the first one is conquered by another. We don't have enough facts on this procedure to know now. But I'm sure the game will play very differently once the first emperor is crowned. We do know that he will be the player with the best all-round stats in the faction or group that conquers and secures the Ruby Throne.

What we don't know is how long an emperor will rule, how often he can be replaced, what his actual powers and influence will be, etc.
