Not even close eh. Canadian accents trump all o' yas, no doot aboot it.



Actually the reason it's more popular is the torturer in the SI's starting zone. "I know! It's so hard to stop at just one once you've started!"

I just like empire because its populated..... I tried rerolling republic but after seeing how dead it really was I decided im not going to waste my time leveling and all that again.

Not fun rerolling to play a dead faction where you know no one and none of the guilds are taking new members because they are all close knit so to speak lol.

Empire = the mmo part of this game.

Republic = solo play action and getting ganked by groups of imps in pvp.

@OP: Hey! I'm American and that offends me.


... because it's pretty much true. Dammit
If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.

This is irrefutable, and I am American. Female IA and female SI :swoon:

Every time they speak I feel like Kramer when he talks to Erica on the phone. ggggiddyup

Like my reply, this thread screams 'pointless'
If things get any worse, I'll have to ask you to stop helping me.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the fact that the Empire got the Chiss. I mean, Thrawn is one of the greatest non-Jedi characters in the Star Wars lore, at least in my opinion.

As for me personally, well I still plan on playing EVERY class from start to end, but have had reasons for doing each. Trooper because my first character is ALWAYS a Neutral-good-fighter-type. Jedi Knight because of the female Jedi-ish character I usually use. Sniper because after the Agent progression video, I found myself very interested in the playstyle (Always liked snipers and the like), and the second act has held me hooked. And Inquisitor, while I haven't started it yet, I'd like to have some of the electric shocky fun.

So on my end, I'm about equally divided on which side I want to play on. But this is me.

Having the following toons... Jedi Sentinel, Trooper, and a Jedi Guardian (that I'm doing dark side), as well as a Sith Marauder, and a Bounty Hunter Merc, I can say that the Sith and Bounty hunter storylines have been the most interesting by far. The Trooper storyline is god as well. I'm having more fun with my second Jedi who is mostly dark than with the original.

I'm not sure why others rolled a Sith/Imp, but for me having seen all movies countless times and owning them, I wanted to experience the other side of the storyline. It's been fascinting honestly to be immersed in the Sith and the Empire's world and making deliciously evil choices, since that's not who I am in real life.

And just for the record.... I'm OK with SWTOR being a RP/MMO hybrid as a game. I think it blends the two genres very well.
