it matters to me, i dont like having the chance of getting ganked if im out questing. id rather not take the chance.
Honestly, even when my Original server was hopping (Port Nowhere) and was Heavy/Full, I barely saw any Imperials outside Warzones. Maybe an odd one in Tattooine and a few in the Nar Shaddaa bonus area, but that was it.
But I amended the list anyhow.
See, could have avoided this issue by doing a PvEvP game and letting the PvErs turn off all Open World PvP functionality.
So you can't heal a guy on your Faction who is PvP tagged. Boom, quest all you want, get to watch funny fights and have a laugh while being perfectly safe. Plus, more people on the servers.
