Hi,

I see a lot of comments regarding that Emp side have a higher winrate than Rep side in WZs.

In order to try to understand if there actually is a demographical difference between the factions I decided to do a Poll to gather background info on what players PvP much at both sides.

Here is the link, results will be published on sunday the 29th of January.

So go ahead and show us who Empire/Republic players really are

Disclaimer:

There will be many opinions on what questions should have been included or not. I do not claim this to be a full fletched survey but some info is better than no info in my book

Also imnot native in english so please excuse the spelling errors.

Cheers

Hi, no not really closed.This number is firstly old and was before many people became lvl 50. Basically this number showed that when people leveled up and had little clue about the end game PvP mechanics the winrate was fairly similair. It was also before the 50 bracket was introduced.

I would expect the winrate in the 50s bracket to differ much from this.

It would be interesting to know how the stats for win rates are generated. If they just count wins it is just terrible math due to huttball. If same-faction warzones are not considered at all it is actually quite an interesting figure.

Just did that survey and the questions are not bad. I would give it a try, the results should shet more light on the matter than a simple ratio.

I would say that Imp's won more before the 50 bracket simply because they had more players and therefore more 50's.

Since the 50 bracket, I would say its more 50/50. Some evenings I will even go on like a 4/5 match winning streak in PUG's.

It certainly seems that imps are not as powerful as they once were now they have competition.

Most likely they only calculate fights agains the other faction. This means when people leveled up Empire had a 53% winrate against Republic even if they in many many cases did not had a lot of experience fighting in WFs outside of hutball (Empire got a ton more same faction hutball matches than republic got).

So even with a lower experience from those non hutball WFs they won more than they lost.

This was old data and most folks was leveling up then though.

Done.

Decent questions.

I'd request that when you are presenting the results you make at least one overall comparison of the 50's vs the lowbie warzones.
