With all due respect:
Why is the republic always so incomptend?

I mean sure we need quests but the way it goes is like:
Save me(3 million times)

Senetators who cant even manage a space station* and everyone seem to be unable to solve there own problems and expect others to solve them for them.

And then there are the sith:
Wickted crual corrup and downright explotive not once have i heard them ask, beg or plea for help(unless order too by me:P)

Can you blame me for favoring empire who atleast believe they can get the job done?

So i will ask again why is the republic so incomptend?

knowledge is power.
use it well.

Good players take any and all advantages they can get, actually. It's why they are good.

the republic is not incompetent so much as it is run by the electoral mandate with many individuals that all contribute something else or something new.

real world this causes chaos can you imagine if you add in races with differing thought processes and agendas?

sith side is easier as imperial expansion is a simple thing when 1 or a few people decide for the many over long periods of time <imperial mandates cause stagnation over long periods and give rise to leaders who do it for the best of themselves>

Care to explain that because to me there is a big difference.

Sure both need help but the way it is asked:

Milord we could use your help to solve this problem that threated the stability of the empire.

Jedi we need your help to save our men who are captured by slavers while following dancers to a cantina.


see the difference?

EDIT: also it seem the republic is always reactive and the empire proactive.

Dude. It's a Republic.
Democracies of all kinds cater to incompetence.

It's basically a virtue, second only to refusal to accept responsibility.

This thread is hilarious. Is there a popcorn emote?

Actually, what's the star wars popcorn equivalent.

And the reason you're saving people is because you're republic side. If you were imperial, you'd leave them to die or finish them off yourself.

remember if those quest givers didn't need your help they wouldn't be talking to you.
