I don't think you guys played beta.

Basically, you can still be a naughty mcnaughtymister even if you're a Jedi. BW went with the old DnD alignment thing.

So, you can be a jedi that not a single flok is given when asked to help.

A Jedi can't force choke a Gungan once they get put into game...

Sorry if this has already been posted, but I think we could all learn a lesson from the innocent children:

Shouldn't we wait for um I don't know, the actual launch to make this call?

Also, bad guys have all the fun.

("Old Republic Dads", "ORD2: Outer Rim Division", "Old Timers Guild", and "OldTimersGuild")

Then again, I saw in WoW an assumption that Horde was more professional because Alliance was all "kiddies". Since when is being able to play an MMO 18 hours a day every day a sign of being older? Sounds to me a sign of being a teenager during summer break or a college student who's skipping classes a lot. In gaming, the older gamers are often the noobs, 'cause we don't have as much time to get good at the game as you younger gamers.
There will always be exceptions to every situation.

I remember reading about the psychology of playing good vs evil (implied) years ago. Unfortunately I can't find the article to cite it. Basically the theory being presented was that younger players tend to gravitate toward move good, or "heroic," factions, based on a number of reasons. Younger kids tend to root for the good guy. They're still being taught (hopefully) that you should be a good person and help others in society. They just haven't reached the point where they find out that it feels good to be bad (opinion I know).

This article was no scientific study, or any official psychological profiling, but it was interesting nonetheless.

I disagree with your thought that "professionalism" is tied to "time spent playing." I would argue that professionalism is based on how an individual or group carries themselves, how they work with others, and how open they are to receive criticism and/or suggestions. IMO, the said "evil" factions have always been more professional. But that is solely my experience.

Eventhough that's a proven false rumor and both sides are equally childish.

My story is that all my friends, who wanted to play SWTOR had chosen a dark side, so I had to go along with them. But to tell the truth I like both sides equally, both have they good\bad stories, bad\good guys and astonishing well done maps.
