On Red Eclipse the Republic dominates almost all games. I'm also thinking about switching to them (I think most good pilots already did).

On jedi covenant it is almost always rep that wins. At least in the games I have played. And I have started seeing a lot more pub vs pub, seems like the imps are getting discouraged.

I don't quite agree with it. You do have a point, but I still regard one or a few player's influence as being too small.

For the already losing side, however, losing ANY person is bad.

I'm not saying I'm good (I'm not) but in order to even have a chance I have to use my Empire toons it seems.
I guess it depends which time of the day you are in. I'm on POT5 too and I regularly track my match played and won achievements, so far it's almost a perfect 1 win for 1 defeat which is more than fair enough for me.

On the other hand solo queues seem to carry more victories than group queues, probably the fact that imp groups are much more coordinated.

Posters seem to have the imperials suffering more often, but you need a large sample to tell. In general I would say it depends on the server. Ebon Hawk definitely favors Republic at the moment in the games I've been in - though not quite the massacre a lot of people here report. It's about a 70-30 rate. There haven't been any slaughters Republic side yet, though unfortunately the close games are few and far between.

I am pot5 and the pubs win all the time. I don't know what the OP is talking about. We are much better at GSF than we are on ground PvP.

It's more that the empire has premades on voice comms very frequently. Shock, who is on the leaderboards for kills, has a full contingent of people playing wingman for him. That's why he does so well on a gunship.

It's just the same old thing in SWTOR pvp- it's premades or bust. And right now, Empire has the premades. Which means they gear faster from winning. Which means that not only are those people who are in the premades getting better at a faster rate, so is everyone that rides their coattails. So, as a solo player, your best bet is to play Empire.

Bioware tried to address this with 8v8 premade pvp. We see how that went.

I'm on Shadowlands and have been playing both Empire and Republic fairly equally. Both of my characters are close to 50-50 win loss ratio.
