I play Republic, and I'm glad. I wouldn't want to feel like I needed a bone tossed to me to compete with the enemy.
Its not just that, as a rep i feel like an add on, a last minute addition to swtor. From the imp storyline, armor, weapons, animations to the bugs that republic suffer atm. You can see bioware have spent alot more time making sure the imp side feel right and have trusted that the rep just falls into place

They havent given the love equally IMO when it comes to the appearance of endgame armors etc. But maybe it will be adjusted over time.

Until then ive stopped pvping WZ + ilum until i can enter without getting 1 shot by 2 week old battlemasters ^^

you call these preferences? No wonder republic suck balls in pvp. Hell, the players can't even notice the flaws if you shoved it into their faces.
Why should the game help YOU when your team/faction sucks? This isn't Call of Duty where the game rewards you with perks like death streaks for playing like ****. If you can't deliver a good opposition, then the beatings should hurt and it should sting enough to make a grown man cry until you get some good opposition. Just because there's consistently less people on the Republic side doesn't mean it's not impossible.

How is this relevant to my point?

Another example of how bad republic players are.

IF you knew anything about game imbalances then im sure you would be trolling.

1 second in pvp can be the difference between u living or dieing and a 5k crit. So before you start making fun of things beyond your understanding please think before you open ur mouth. thank you

Judging by the huge amt of bugs and improvements that need to be done in swtor, its going to be a long long wait.

All republic players should just quit and stop being the step child of bioware and playthings for the empire.
Back on the Project problem? >.< I infact love Project compared to lightning and try to compare the Trooper to the Bounty Hunter the Troopers Bomb thing is just like the Lightning while the Bounty hunters bomb is just like Project... I actually prefer my Project... it still hits within a second so I could care less if it's the last part of a second

Again your going off on ur own little cloud.
The skill imbalance is what the OP is talking about not the server imbalance

I'm too busy unloading mortars into Sith to give two ***** whether or not I'm gimped. I enjoy playing on the Republic, because I like the faction more. That's all I care about, and that's all anybody should care about. I couldn't care less whether the Empire has more players.

The OP is claiming systemic neglect is apparent in the Republic faction's design.

If you think a one second animation on one skill isn't a laughably pathetic example, then you're as stupid as he is.
