The only issue I foresee is the commentary pre-combat:
ACW: the pub/imp general is talking...if you are a pub character and hear imp commentary that could be a problem
They just need to use the training simulation voic overs. Problem solved. It isnt even a problem TO solve. They already have it in game, it just requires them to hit a button to unlock it. It was already in a PTS a few times and they conveniently got rid of it when the patch went live.

Like I said, Seems a bit odd.
Yeah, I swear up and down i remember them saying taht you could also choose the alliance, but the twitter post with that seems to have vanished and now its only pub and imp, which is disappointing. Why would I fight my own interests?

Well again though, as part of the story...

Think of it more as "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" rather than abandoning the alliance for another government.

And if you chose the opposite choice from both of those you mentioned? You would have both of them on your side.

Exactly, I would choose my alliance over either. I'm this great commander and now ruler of Zakuul and have both Empire and Sith with me.

There is no reason I would side with either one of them alone at this point. I got my own alliance to side with.

So I have a question, this here states during the Storyline, so this is a one time consequence thing right? Meaning if you choose Empire as a Republic Commando, once the story continues those choices carry over no matter how many times you switch back n forth after the story?

As many others are saying, I'm disappointed as hell that you're forcing us to choose to support either the Empire or the Republic. My Alliance is now the strongest force in the galaxy - why would I bend the knee to these corrupt/inept/psychotic organisations?!

lol, so PvP wise all the losers in the Republic will join Empire because they are sick of losing. Not realizing of course that they are the cause of their own loss.

I will be calling out locations of Republic traitors so that their people can come kill them

How will this impact a guildship summons?

How will this impact chat channels?

You say it won't have any impact beyond Iokath, but it will impact future story content...is that future content still restricted only to Iokath or could it spread beyond that?
If you choose opposite Factions while grouped, it will allow you to make the choice and then remove you from the group.

Guildship summons will be based on your Class Faction, as per normal.

General chat channels are dictated by your normal Class Faction, you can however group with and chat with players based on your chosen Faction.

The future impact is story impact based on your story choices, not gameplay.

Interesting... A few months ago the forum was full of posts that wanted to return to Pub vs. Imp stories. Some posters said they'd be unhappy being forced to re-join their old faction, because that's not what their characters would do.

Behold! You can choose a side. I thought "wow! that'll make some people happy".

Behold! The forum is now full of bi-tching that the story returns to Pub vs. Imp story, and you even can choose the side.

There's not satisfying you, people, is there?

For my own toons: they just want to go home. They never wanted any stupid Zakuul or to form a new Empire.
