PvP server selection should show Imperial-to-Rebel ratio

I don't know if others feel the same way but I hate joining a PvP server blindly. Not knowing the ratio of Imperials to Rebels on a PvP server sucks. Reasons being:
  • Unbalanced Warzone queue times
  • One faction out numbers the other consistently in Open World PvP
  • Due to uneven ratio one side constantly dominates objectives, zones, etc.
  • The out numbered faction typically has to quest or participate in zones at odd times during the day to avoid constantly being out numbered which takes away from the fun of consistent Open World PvP
There are probably others but I want to keep this short. I just don't want to be in a situation down the road where I have 3 Rebel characters but PvP is a drag since Rebels out number the Imperials. I could roll an Imperial character but that then separates my characters so I can't share items, crew skills, etc. plus I end up ditching 3 characters that I spent a lot of time on. There is the option of allowing paid "faction changes" or "server transfers" but having to pay for each character blows especially when I had no information to make an educated server selection in the beginning. Plus I'm sure a lot of ppl would hate the idea of allowing "faction changes".

My suggestions:
  • Imperial-to-Rebel ratio shown on the server selection screen (primarily for PvP servers)
  • Offer free server transfers for servers with unbalanced faction ratios OR give each character 1 free server transfer that they can use if they so desire
Just offering my opinions. This is in no way a QQ post or a "I demand this or I quit" post. What are your guys opinions on this?

*EDIT: My bad for not using Empire-to-Republic or whatever the faction names are, you get the point. There always has to be critics

There are no rebels.

At the end of days the dragon stands tall and with limitless rage it illuminates all.

This is SWTOR. If you are going in to a server blindly it's pretty safe to assume that Sif Lawds will have the larger pop.
