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.
I dunno you see to be biased and appointing yourself as speaking for the community,last i checked there is no President of the community at large.
