I want to know what is being done to remedy this? Im on the Shien server here, and imps win every warzone. its not fun. its just a grind for reps to get pvp gear. we re always outnumbered and usually always lose. i dont get it, i have an imp character to and it just seems llike imps are catered to. why?

Please explain why you think imps are catered to.

Never fear, brave Republic citizen!

I'm on the Shien server too, but my experience is a bit different from yours. Since I started keeping track three weeks ago (with spreadsheets and everything they may end up in my master's thesis), I've had 33 wins and 31 losses. That's almost perfect balance.

There have been some bad stretches that made me think that the Republic always loses (a recent 1-9 stretch was really painful) Then a quick glance at the spreadsheet tells me we're doing OK.

Of course, I haven't reached level 50 yet, and things may be very different in the top bracket. I do know several level 50 PvP players, and it sounds like they're doing OK too. I'll ask them next time I log in, just to be sure.
This is my first visit to the Galaxy of Terror, and I'd like it to be a pleasant one.

I never, NEVER, won as a rep on my current server so i switched to Empire just to be able to get the daily from time to time. My new Imp toon is now valor 24 and I've only lost 3 games so far, the first was an on-going game on Alderaan where I entered with just minutes left and the other two were against high imp premades in huttball.

I think the problem is that too many are playing as commando on the rep side.

One word on what BW is doing to fix pop balance, ilum, etc:

NOTHING

They've got much more important stuff to do like stealth nerfing classes.

Bout even on The Crucible Pits...I think bad people just have the tendency to lose more
