As some of you know, A Imperial edition has been leaked with all sorts of goodies! But most exciting is the 10th race has been announced to be on all alliances.

So in regards to having imperials on our side what is everyone's opinion on this? Will this be a huge deciding factor? Will the imperials and their "jack of all trades" help add more balance to each Alliance? How many of you plan on being Imperial? Let's hear everyone's thoughts on this!

It wasn't really a leak... it was an official announcement.

There's already a pretty similar thread to this but as for the actual question I think the Imperials could work but only really in the DC or maybe the EP. The AD hates the races of man so logically they wouldn't accept Imperials.

Lore/RP wise i don't like it and i don't think many people who play imperial will be joining up with the AD.

Gameplay wise i don't mind. Having more people will help us since i suspect, despite the polls on these fan sites, that AD will be under populated at first due to Skyrim. Some of the most popular races are Nords and Dark elves along with Kahjiits and Argonians. Since Kahjiits if they pre order can now pick any alliance i think you will see lots of these cat people in EP or DC. We need all the man power we can get.

Imperials in AD - yes please. Other races - only if they have some debuff. Imperials bring more balance to each faction, especially AD dominated by nightblades. I'll stick whit my Bosmer, but my ALT will be Imperial.

Please note that when I was a little baby Bosmer, my village was attacked by daedric prince Sheogorath, and he strike me whit Wabbajack. From then my rhetoric and choice of words are very chaotic.

Zenimax implemented factions, now they disregard their own playerbase divisions...

Why not real RvR... with everyone in the same Pantamrielic faction... known as Empire... fighting against other players from other servers... who, if they enter PvP, are depicted as twisted distortion of themselves from the perverted Nirn copy of Cold Harbour...

And the Lore explanation would be, that noone on Nirn and Coldharbour (the twisted Nirn copy) knows which is the 'real' world. For everyone their own world looks like real world and the other servers look like Coldharbour just like the players from other servers look 'evil'. But as these both realms (servers, all) are connected by the Dark Anchors only one will survive, so everyone (from Altmer to Orc, from Nord to Redguard) is forced to work together and fight the supposed abominations from Coldharbour...

Anyway, factions should stay clean...

Great responses everyone! I for one had already decided to get what ever Special edition box they threw at me, but now I feel obligated to be an imperial!

Another question that came to mind is the racial ability, "Voice of the emperor" will they stick with this in game?
A gold coin for your thoughs!

You shouldn't feel obligated. They're really unbalancing things with the addition of Imperials and this new explorers pack.

They really probably can't include voice of the emperor. I don't really see how they could add most of the illusion spells like fury, calm and all that other stuff in PvP and such so my guess would be no voice of the emperor.

I only feel obligated because when I buy special editions I try to use everything!

What is everyone looking forward too from the Imperial edition?

I hate that the "any race can play any alliance" bonus was added to pre-order. But having the imperials as an exclusive race for those who buy the Imperial Edition is a cool feature for me. Lore-wise it makes sense that the members of the Imperial population (whom turn turncoat)
can choose to draw lots with whatever alliance they want. They're caught in the middle of this war, the human race lives all over Tamriel. We know that the Altmer hire human laborers to mine ore in Auridon. Relationships between Altmer/human could have been created in the process. But other wise, I don't want any other of the lesser races in the dominion!

For the Queen!!

The imperials are the Aldmeri's (for lack of better term) bitches for the majority of the history unless I missed something.

Well, I think that only Imperials can play any alliance. And after 50+ and 50++ everyone will enter any faction territority. PvP in Cyrodiil, though, won´t be mixed.

And from lore point of view it makes no sense that any race, which is not in the alliance, fights for the alliance. Save for Imperial. Though, they wouldn´t leave their home, Cyrodiil, because their primary objective would be to save their homeland (by choosing one of three alliances). Not by making the people in the faction territory better of by doing quests for them.

Relationships between the Altmer and the races of man will never improve. The Direnni mingled with the Nedes which resulted in the Bretons and the Altmer still hate the Bretons.

Also I believ the Altmer used enslaved goblins as miners.

Imperial Imshmerial... The only thing that would have interested me would have been if they had released a faction edition or race edition with extras that your chosen race and class actually needed. Now there will be thousands of Imperials running round on white horses wearing shiny armour everywhere!

I personally like starting from scratch with no extra perks, what's the point otherwise!?

Also, the retail copy is only £35 at Grainger Games in the UK*

*PRE ORDER AND RECEIVE THE EXPLORER'S PACK AT LAUNCH!

Pack includes: Three day early game access, play with any of the nine races and alliances, receive the Scuttler vanity pet & bonus treasure maps!
