Oh wow... i didnt even remember they did that.

Yeah, that would totally break the system and everyone would stack in only one faction. Scary someone thought that would ever be a good idea.

Some WZ make sense to be X-faction as all Huttball maps, and possibly Odessen. The rest do not make sense at all story wise.
Now the problem would be if they made the rest single faction we will have even more Huttball games popping like a 10 HB to 1 the rest games. Currently HB is like a 2 to 1.
Still I miss the times when it was single faction, games had more spirit to them and on my origin server it was important to make the Rep win especially in maps as Civil War. Guess it was Swtor early days, when most had a single or a couple toons at most.

But otherwise, yeah. Not only on PvP imo, but in any instanced group content, faction split makes no sense. Gameplay > Sense of lore. Lore should stay on your personal instances and dailies/questing. Group content should be open to all. We aren't doing it for the " lore" we are doing for gameplay and rewards.
Lack of lore is one of the main reasons players quit swtor. They come to play star wars, to fight jedi vs sith but instead they see mixed group and jedi helping sith. Nonsense as it is. You should not think that lack of content and buggs are the only reasons people quit since the problem is complex

Even if we're talking about a lore/RP perspective it would be very sad that after 12 years the Pubs and Imps are still fighting over the same three guns on Alderaan.

I don't buy that at all. PvP is PvP.

Agreed. If it’s red, it’s dead. If it’s blue, it’s you. There are only two sides in pvp. The red team and the blue team. There is no imperial or republic.

I honestly don’t even look at who is empire or republic in pvp anymore. All I look at is the class icon and Merc/mando, Mara/sent (in all honesty, I just refer to them all as their imperial versions).

And who cares, you can hardly get anyone to talk to each other these days. And hardly anyone dresses in a RP fashion.

I don't believe that for a second. People who care about lore do the story and leave until the next story drop. People care a lot less about lore than you think. Gameplay is what keeps people playing.

The PvE side of me agrees, however, the PvP side of me knows that these game always seem to have imbalanced factions necessitating such steps.

Even WoW has this problem and offers various bonuses and mercenary options.

PvP is a team based thing, faction really doesnt matter.
