This is broken for some. The imp side legacy armor set is waaaay better looking than the Pub side, So I switched support to get the Imperial reputation tokens to get the required rep for the Imp armor.

Well now (gunslinger) I am unable to switch back and do the Tyth operation with my team. I am not the only person in this mess. FIX YOUR **** please. I have been having to do the op on a lesser geared toon essentially gimping my Ops team.

One of my Republic Iokath characters is stuck as Imp aligned, then I started Iokath story on another. Something came up mid story and I had to leave Iokath. Upon returning, the system loaded my character, a Republic aligned Vanguard into the IMPERIAL base. Whereupon I was immediately set upon by many elites and a walker. Luckily when I rezzed at the medical center it was republic.
We don't have friendly fire in The Old Republic for a simple reason: a lot of players are, well... idiots. I don't mean you, of course, dear reader, I mean those OTHER players. You know who I'm talking about. -- DamionSchubert

Worked today, after weekly reset/lockout, for the first time for me.

After the Tuesday reset I was finally able to switch factions.
I'm not even gonna try to switch back before Monday because I might get stuck there again.
Keep up to date with game events at

Same here. I wonder if this is a weekly reset instead of a daily reset?

Likewise, I was also able to switch after the weekly reset having tried and failed every day last week. Seems there is something off with the lockout if we can switch weekly not daily.
