), the developers explained that reaching Emperor status depends on earning Alliance Points, which can be gained through killing other players, healing allies and taking control of a keep. Conquering these structures also benefits your allies by expanding your controlled territory alongside zone-wide buffs - the more keeps you have the better the buffs will be.
"Players who become Emperor will get a full skill line that they keep throughout the rest of their lives in The Elder Scrolls Online," Sage observed. "It won't be easy to become Emperor, but we think people will be glad they worked for it."

Look at Eve, alliances of around 10,000 people fighting for a common cause (against other alliances of 10,000 people). Some of them have been in there for so many years and a simple wrong move from the right person could bring a bad end to millions of man hours of work that you can't get back with a simple ticket. Spies in that game will spend more than a human year trying to convince everyone that they are on their side. Hilarity ensues.
