I don't understand how people can side with the imperials

Why side with the imperials because ulfric comes around as an idiot with a power trip and that's not a good conbination.


So, whether its true or not doesn't matter? Try applying that logic towards the Empire. They come off as not caring about their citizens and cowards.

You shouldn't compare real world racism with fictional racism.
Stormcloaks are racist, so what? Their distrust for the other races doesn't come from a superiority complex or ignorance, it comes from most of them being actually dangerous.

The Empire did so because it had to. If the Emperor had not renounced Hammerfell as a province, the Empire would have been forced to send troops into Hammerfell in order to bring them under obedience.


They abandoned Hammerfell because the Thalmor told them to. It's part of the surrender they signed, you know, the Concordant.

While I can't prove it, it is the most logical explanation. Look at how the Thalmor are trying to prolong the civil war. They want both sides to drain themselves.


This is true, they did the same with Hammerfell. The Empire is weaker without it, just as it'll be weaker without Skyrim. But, for anyone to say that Ulfric is a Thalmor puppet for prolonging the war and to not recognize that the Empire is doing the exact same thing is simply denial.

There's a double standard among a lot of board members. If the Stormcloaks play into the Thalmor's plans, they're evil, redneck herpa derps but the Empire playing into Thalmor plans are upright and noble.

I'm just happy I'm not the only one who notices this.

I havnt seen someone say theyre evil, just that theyre doing what they Thalmor want.

The Empire is doing what they would do naturally with a rebellion and the Stormcloaks are being played against them by the Thalmor.

Maybe because I have already played a character who sided with the Stormcloaks, and now I want to try things from the other end?

If the Empire was so concerned about pushing back against the Thalmor, they'd have looked at options other than war. They could have granted Skyrim it's independence and forged an alliance against the Thalmor, instead they chose war.
