Empire. I know it's cool and all to have everything be all "Dark, death, cookies" what ever you want the excuse to be. Truth is, a lot of pvp servers are looking pretty grim right now with the server ratio. I don't have official numbers or anything but I have heard many complaints coming from other pvp servers. With the way things are going now, you are going to encourage more new players to roll toward the faction that "Wins all the time." Look what happened to WoW because of all the Horde hype. We need more people to join the Republic to get some balance going. So far on my server there are only 96 people on the Republic fleet. While 300+ are on the Imperial fleet. SO seriously, don't make this game about one faction. Give us a try.

Sorry but I'm just having too much fun with my Bounty Hunter to go Republic.

Imperials are going to get tired of Huttball eventually.
Chewie and I have gotten into pants more heavily guarded than this.

It's ridiculous. I don't get how virtually all the classes are mirrored, yet they all choose to over populate one side and make it easy mode in PvP. It's not PvP anymore it's just pathetic. I hope the serious PvPers realize that and roll Republic to balance out things. Especially on Dark Reaper. It's just harder to find a well coordinated team on the Republic side so far.

What can I tell you? I thought for sure that I would be a Jedi Guardian. I love to tank, and I don't mind playing for the blue team. In fact, I kind of prefer it, as I like having lots of enemy players to fight as I level up, and in another red vs. blue game, I transferred over to blue once the population became very imbalanced.....I guess I'm a glutton for punishment. I like having to be very careful when leveling up due to the fact that there are more enemy players around than friendly. I also enjoyed the instant queues for group PvP.

After actually trying Jedi Guardian and being bored by the story and the starting zone, I have to say that it will probably be a while before I go back to it....And it's not because I want to be Sith. When it comes to force users, I'd rather be a Jedi than a Sith any day of the week. Screw Sith.

So I hated my Jedi Guardian's starting zone. I gave it to level 20 or so, but I just wasn't feeling it. It felt bland to me.....Which led me to try out the other class which was most appealing to me: Imperial Agent. What can I say? It's my new main. I love it. My next alt will probably also be an Imperial Agent. I don't want to be a smuggler. I really like my Agent.

Lol I was Empire on Dark Reaper and re-rolled at level 24 to Republic.

Republic wins most warzones on that server.

Btw...if you are on Dark Reaper...do you know whats up with the Empire guild "Nerve"? They suck so bad, I've never seen them win....I've even seen them with like 4 50s and lose to a pug of level 20s/30s

Really!? I must be really really unlucky then. I don't know about that guild really. I know that at least right now we are losing a bunch. What time do you usually play?

Honeslty, I'm about to switch away from Republic on my server. I can't get into a warzone where people actually know how to play an objective... or really PvP at all.

I consistently watch almost my whole team fight KIND OF near one door in Voidstar. I'm stuck defending the other one solo, even on my healer. And somehow, they get a bomb planted behind them. Genius.

I watch them decide not to CC the one stinking Imperial coming my way when I'm a second away from planting a bomb, and then I get canceled.

I watch them all move as one blob in Alderaan, letting the Imperials re-cap turrets we just took.

The ops chat always looks like:
*me*: Watch the doors, and call for help if you're going to need it and we're good.
*silence*
A BOMB HAS BEEN PLANTED

or

*me*: Stay near the node, call out inc.
*silence*
ENEMY TURRET NOW FIRING ON OUR SHIP

Don't even get me started on Huttball.

I'll tell people to join the Republic when we can start proving we're worth joining. I run warzones with my guild as much as possible, but rarely do we get full groups of 4. And even then, sometimes the 4 of us aren't enough to win the wz.
