Am I the only one that thinks it doesn't make sense that we are still mixing Republic and Empire in the Warzone queues during the current Onslaught expansion. The two factions are at war again and its time to go back to Empire vs Republic in the Unranked Warzone queues.

Well, you can take PVP as something seperate from the PVE main storyline. That way its fine

Take away mixed teams and players on the republic side would hardly ever get to pvp. It’s why they introduced it to start with. The story has nothing to do with it.
The change was to stop pvp dying faster than it is.
If that’s too much for you to deal with, then don’t pvp.

I used to treasure nightly PvP when playing Pub before cross-faction. Two or three pops an evening really made you appreciate the time you spent in-match. I missed the birth of my first child because Voidstar popped for the first time in two months just as my wife went into labour. Didn't even win. Didn't matter.

lol. I was going to post a sarcastic post, but this post gets the point across better than I ever could. ^

At the OP, who effing cares at this point if imps are vs. pubs in the WZs at this point? When you worry about stuff like this, consider yourself lucky.

No, just no. Keep the RP away from PvP.

You got it backwards. Empire players would be the one with long queues. Republic ones would be near instant, cause presumably the empire population is bigger.

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.

No, because same faction WZ's were a thing. Before cross faction it was mostly Imp vs Imp matches. Only pubs really ever got a proper imp vs pub WZ's. So imps got frequent pops, pubs got very few.
