Volendrung and emp

It was 3am in the morning so I may have just been hallucinating, but ep had Volendrung while their faction also had emp today/last night/this morning (time zones ...).
Is it true? Can the faction that has emperor (and might also own all or most of the map) also wield Volendrung?

If so that must be one of the most ridiculous things that has ever been implemented into Cyrodiil. It should be a mechanic that helps equalize unbalanced games, not something that makes any imbalance even worse.

    The emperor can't wield it, but oddly his/her faction can :/

    The emperor actually can wield Volendrung if he already carries it while getting crowned.

    Precisely. The idea of the Daedric artifact is obviously something introduced to balance imbalanced campaigns. It was reported early on that the Emperor's faction would not be able to wield this weapon. Not sure if that has turned out to be the case or not.

    I proposed in another thread that the spawns should be proportional to the campaign standings. It should mostly spawn for the faction that occupies last place.

    Hardly. Their reasoning was obviously more like this:
    1) we can not do anything about The Lag for several reasons; we suck and do not really give a !@#$% to name a few
    2) neither can we do something about design issues like imbalanced campaigns or nightcapping for several reasons; we suck and do not really give a !@#$% to name a few
    3) however we need to conceal the above two facts and divert attention from them, at least for a while
    4) above all, we need some PvP-related talking point for the next expansion, because that is how we always have been; very good at talking about how cool the game will be, not as much at how cool it is

    And so they threw in a daedric artifact.

    No the emp faction can wield it, but it will not spawn near them. They can easily kill the first wielder and have the emp and a player with the artifact. The emp him/her self cannot wield it.

    I have to thank you again for providing facts.

    I'm not sure if it takes into account score. Someone in another thread showed it spawning near the winning side, and then that side getting emp with it. So there's that.

    That is poor design

    Make it so only non emp faction can wield it

    That still wouldn’t solve anything to be honest because the non emp faction could be the ones already winning. The ones with emp could be the ones in last place too.
