One massive server per region means that it's going to be hard to do and even harder to keep for any period of time imo. Also have a good feeling that having 3+ million people playing on a server is going to mean lots of lag ... really hope they can find a way to control it or people will turn away from the game.
Also, maybe you guys are right, we still don't know what the Emperor can do so maybe it has some relation with this...
Would be nice if they could talk a little bit more about what you can do as an Emperor.
On a related note, the political thing was one reason I didn't get into the game very much. It's just one of those things that turns me off from games. I can understand why some people would like it though.
I like the idea of political gameplay in an mmo. I'm not really sold on the way they implementing on becoming Emperor though.
The first emperor will probably be called "Emperor xXFartXx" -.-
I'm still on the edge on how long it should take to be Emperor. Like WoW vanilla grand marshal, that took a very long time to do, and you had to be incredibly dedicated.
Also, It better not be where only massive zerg guilds get it. I wonder if there's going to be any kind of strategy at all. Most of the time these massive PvP battles in games are always dominated by the zerg.
For example, I realized I was being passed on the leader boards by someone who I was always stomping outside of IF. I thought, "I play like, 10 hours a day and get redonkulous honor per match, what gives?" So I talked to him and he was having some guildies play his account when he was sleeping / at work. So I started asking around and most the GMs I came across were actually multiple players taking shifts. I was extremely disillusioned. One of them even told me I wouldn't break top 10 without finding someone to cover my night shift. I had a guild tell me to stop playing for 2 weeks so they could get their GMs gf grand marshal before TBC came out.
I hated that server.
"There must always be...AN EMPEROR. The imperials will run rampant without anyone to control them!".

Would be nice if becoming Emperor would involve something else other than combat.
Say, gathering supplies, delivering them to help the war front, maybe add in some PvE... but that's me, I know some PvP'ers would hate that.
