What's PvP like on Begeren?

How long are you waiting for pops? Is there a healthy balance Imp / Rep or does one faction loldominate?

Depending on what happens to the APAC servers (annoucement 'within the week') I may be one of many refugees trying to find the right server and while I very much enjoy RP I definitely prefer PvP to PvE content.

I think a lot of it depends on whether you're talking lowbies or 50s, and also if you're a solo-queuer or group-queuer. At lowbies, anything's anything. At 50, I feel like I run into a lot more groups consisting of double-imp premades than I find myself in, pub-side, and solo-queueing can be a real pain. That said, I think that, for the time being, the republic has a slight edge over the empire, in terms of elder-game pvp'ers, and if you put together a solid group there's more than a fighting chance. All in all, compared to what I've heard from people on the other servers, I'd say that we're pretty darned balanced.

As far as queue times go, I'm not really sure I could give any reasonable estimate... I usually talk to friends, craft, do GTN stuff, whatever, between pops. It's not pre-1.2 long, but it's usually not one after the other, either. Queues (at 50) tend to die somewhere between 1 and 3am PST, but lowbies seem to run all night, most of the time.

Ranked is fairly dead, at the moment. There're some great people / guilds working on changing that, but it remains to be seen whether anything will come of it.

Cheats / hacks are almost non-existent, at least, in my experience, and the community's been very good about dealing with exploits.

I think that's about it, in a nutshell.

Pops don't take long at all, 50s or pres. Tonight we were getting pops well into the AM every couple minutes. In terms of faction balance, I cant speak much for the pres since the balance there is usually which faction has the most higher levels at that point in time. 50 pvp I would say is about 60-40 in favor of the republic. The repubs have more pvp focused guilds than the imps and their pugs are usually pretty good. Impside, we have one large pvp guild and a few smaller ones. Our pugs aren't as good as the repub pugs, but lately they have been getting better.

As for RP, both factions seem to have a healthy RP community from what I have seen, although I do not RP myself.
PVE wise the repubs definitely have the advantage with guilds like DoA and ASB being amongst the top this server has to offer.

DL is also up there, with a highly-competitive raiding group, although they've been off-calendar lately.

You should be aware, however, that this lady throws rocks at people's faces, even though she's a healer, even though she claims to be your friend.
