Do you know the story behind the person in armour?
the ork in the akavir armor named after his sword from morrowind, the other umbra wielding person from oblivion or the clearly enchanted/possessed (as there are no connections between parts of it) suit of completely differently styled armor on the festival of magic cover?
who cares, there is no connection.

It's Orcish armour, and I see a resemblance.

Here's a handy step-by-step guide on how to milk people for money on kickstarter: https://medium.com/p/41bde58c832b

It's mainly forcused on hardware rather than games/software, but it does explain a lot of the tricks you can use, especially to get attention to your product.

it's what samurai armor might look like if japan had more metal in terms of design ('cept for those ridiculous pauldrons). supposedly orcish, lore wise supposedly based on aldmer armor. it might as well be akavir. you see a resemblance because both armors are plate, have horns and feature shields. but really, that's all there is to it.

The Akavir aren't related to the Altmer.

aldmer not altmer. the aldmer are the oldest culture that influenced p. much everybody and akavir are the generally asiatic guys with at least one armor design based on armors worn by ashigaru (the blades armor) and katanas, so yeah, that samurai looking orcish armor in morrowind is somewhat akavir in style. then it became more mongolian in oblivion and general fantasy plate bullshit in skyrim.

http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Altmer

and akavir are the generally asiatic guys.

The continent of Akavir, in general, is the least understood of all of Nirn's continents. Only three times in recorded history have inhabitants from the two continents mingled, all three being military invasions, two of which involved the Tsaesci. Thus, the Tsaesci are the only race on Akavir that the majority of Tamriel has even heard of. What little we do know about Akavir's other races comes from accounts related by the Tsaesci Potentates near the end of the First Era.

Even though the Tsaesci are the best known of Akavir's inhabitants, very little is known about them, and much of it is contradictory or cryptic. Within the current lore of Tamriel, there are two quite different depictions of the Tsaesci. Some evidence seems to indicate that they are humans, much like the Nords and Redguards from their respective continents. Other evidence, however, paints a much stranger picture, as vampiric snake-like creatures that feed on humans.[1] One source says that the serpentine beings are tall and beautiful with golden scales.

i meant those http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Aldmer for some reason i remembered orsimer armors being based on aldmer not altmer designs, but whatever. it's not like the lore is consistent when it comes to orcish armor.
as for akavir:

Huh, it's cancelled already.

When you're in a relationship and you start to notice all the little things that are wrong with your partner, it means you've lost the love, if you ever had it. There are a lot of little things we'd like to change about our campaign, but at the heart of it all, we failed to make people fall in love with our idea the same way we love it.

For that reason, we are going to end this Kickstarter campaign immediately. We are unhappy with the way we represented the game, and are going back to the drawing board. It was a hard decision to make, but we are confident it is the right one.

Well, there is such statement in game, IIRC and Orcish armour being patterned after Akaviri would raise some questions - mainly how and why.
OTOH orcs, aldmer, Trinimac, omnomnoms etc.

It does look more than just kind of Japanese so Akavir does spring to mind after looking at it, but there is no actual indication it has anything to do with Akavir and the only akavir armors we've seen were Blades' ones in oblivion (which was a derp game) and Skyrim (which had to follow from OB).

you see a resemblance because both armors are plate, have horns and feature shields. but really, that's all there is to it.
