whatever server you roll on you should go republic, i kno ppl dont like being pushed into a particular faction, but i really dont want to be on a server where we are outnumbered 2:1. Im rolling republic purely to balance, however i dont really care what faction im in so it was an easy choice for me.
I have plans to have at least one character on each side. By I am not worried about the differences between both sides yet (I posted my reasons yesterday in some other posts but can't find them now). I just want a lively, friendly server to start with.
