How is the PvP?

Was thinking of transferring over here and was wondering how the server population is, how is the faction balance, and how the pvp Q times are.

The population here is pretty good. Unranked queue time are usually 5-10 mins during prime time and about 10-25 in the really off hours. Solo Ranked queues don't happen every day, usually 3 or so times a week and Team is only done by a few guilds. Space PvP queues are about 10-15 mins at prime time.

As to faction balance in 55's, Imps dominate ground PvP and most of the better PvP'ers main imp side. Pub side still gets a few wins when the few pub guilds run some premades or Imps switch to alts. As to 10-29 and 30-54, it tends to rotate a lot and one faction usually doesn't dominate both brackets. Space is a bit more balanced, but most of the better pilots are pub side.

Yeah, Republic is generally awful. Because everyone turns tail and re-rolls imp. It makes playing my alt an interesting adventure.

I would not say they turn tail more so run in fear. I mean last night some pve guild was doing 55 warzones with 5-6 people with sub 1200 exp because they were farming comms for the pvp relics to use in pve...

It was scary to say the least.

If you're looking for a server where PvP isn't so heavily favored in the Imps direction, I'd suggest The Harbinger.

It's where I've transferred, and the W/L ratio is around 60/40 Pub/Imp and Solo Q pops every night from around 7-10 EST.

EH is painful if you're a die hard republic player; don't do it to yourself.
