I think it looks quite interesting, to be honest - while staying true to the "imperial theme", it doesn't fall too far away from any of the three Alliances, nor does it come too close to a specific one in terms of look.

Indeed interesting! I wonder what the stats will be. It would also be nice if they added emperor's weapons, so when somebody becomes the emperor they can choose a specific weapon (probably the one which they use the most) and that weapon will ofcourse be the strongest of its kind :p

I have to praise the devs for constraints with the shoulder-pads etc, but a bit brighter colours here and there in the armour wouldn't have hurt in my opinion.

I wonder if it is light, medium, or heavy armor...

Probably heavy armour.

I must say that, while the armour looks good, it's not what I expected. The colours for one are rather dull for the armour of an emperor and there doesn't seem to be much actual plate-mail on the cuirass.

I think it would look better with a more Roman or Greek look to it and more metal plates and a purple or red colouration to the fabric (or whatever it is) below the plates themselves and maybe even a plume of some sort on the helm.

That would not be good "battle" armor IMO, it would be better as "ceremonial" armor.

Or perhaps it's ceremonious battle armour.

Didn't think of that did you?!

Perhaps, but I do not think so, I wonder if someone becomes emperor, then loses the title if they get a modified, slightly weaker version to wear and an original to display.

That armor is sexy. I would assume there would be light, medium and heavy variations.

It's ok looking. I agree with Zim that there will probably be light-medium and heavy variations.

The armour looks alright, could do with some minor tweaks. And I agree the addition of a more ''Spartan'' like helmet with, a plume would make it stand out more, and perhaps give it more notice on the battlefields. And I would also assume that, it takes the form of whatever the emperors current highest skill in armour is, so it could take on light, medium or heavy. That would give players more versatility in their attacks.

I think the light-med-heavy difference will be only in stats, not looks.

IMO

Anybody ever thought this was a vanity set of armor? You can't possibly think they would cripple the player with the highest AP who's worked the hardest to get Emperor with armor that he/she cannot use effectively. It's vanity armor. . AKA a "disguise".
