    The Imperials make stupid mistakes, but they seem to be most efficient option. The Stormcloaks are too backwards.

    My characters can side with either group. Personally, I'd rather not side with anyone. I think it would be way more fun to explore and kill things. If I had to do this damn politics thing, then I would side with The Empire, to learn about them and eradicate the Stormcloaks. And then I'd take over the place, before The Empire tries to chop off my head 'cos I'm deemed more dangerous than useful. I would invite the super rich folk into a fiery deathtrap (disguised as a feast), in order to create a new more loyal elite class. Of course I would frame our hated enemy. I would terrorize and utterly destroy our enemy, no matter what it takes. I'd try to take over as much of the world as possible before my most likely untimely death lol

    I would've sided with the Thalmor, I usually play as an Altmer. Sadly, that wasn't an option.
    I usually go with the Empire, because I believe in their cause personally.

    Definitely the Imperials; I usually play khajiit so it makes sense.

    To be honest, Hadvar's attractiveness did kinda lead to me to picking to follow him through the Keep and to Riverwood. Even if he was gonna let them chop my head off before the Dragon showed up

    I join whatever faction depending on my character, for example my Redguard character supports the Stormcloaks because he fought with the Redguard people against the Thalmor as part of his backstory. So he kind of dislikes the Empire due to them and the signing of the White Gold Concordat Treaty.

    My Altmer on the other hand doesn't care because he wants to raise his own army of the dead to kill the Thalmor due to him being kicked out.

    My Orc is the same being an ally of my Altmer.

    So I don't really have an Imperial supporter unless manipulation and making friends in high places is considered helping them in the civil war.

    Imperial Legion. Every time I make a new character I end up siding with the Legion. It's not really a hard choice: side with the people just trying to keep the peace, or throw your hat in with a bunch of racist bastards who threw Skyrim into chaos just to grab power for their own ends. Not really a hard choice.

    As a long time member of House Telvanni, pragmaticism, realpolitik and revenge all dictate that I support the Stormcloaks, especially if doing so prolongs the war and further weakens the Empire.

    Imperials because 1) I liked their uniforms better and 2) An independent Skyrim is a weak Skyrim against the Thalmor.

    Lol of course a Telvanni wizard wouldn't care much about who wins the war. They'll be alright either way.

    I joined the empire because I was a argonion and the stormcloaks are very racist towards that minority

    I skipped them both and went to the wizards' college to become a magical orc who steals everyone's cheese. I'm not even kidding.

    My dad joined both and basically got to decide the layout of both of their domains.
