a third faction could be hutspace. more neutral force types.

Planet taking is a good idea.
Incorporate instances into this mix and space battles.

instances will help with population issues if incorporated so as to be a linear part of the process.

also orbital defenses for space battling and space instances.
I soloed Ilum completing all of the objectives.

Why cant we win at WZ's Universe at war RPGPVP progression Re-install DX9 for better perf?

Please don't mention instances... We're talking about open world PvP. Population balance was discussed in OP's post.

Great Ideas, I applaud your passion. And I would LOVE to play that game.

however.

After subbing for a second month and now feeling doubly let down by another round of massive blunders in Illum (organized kill-trading). I no longer think these developers are even remotely capable of pulling off the changes you suggest, neither are they worthy of such grand Ideas.

And I highly doubt they will be doing any more to this game than the bare minimum, mostly damage control and placating the fan base. Its purely a money-grab from here till the bottom.

instances are the only way to have actual balance.
health tweaking is interesting but its an untested game balance issue. Bolstering is not the same thing as creating a character that has 5-10 times the HP of any normal character.
It will require considerable time and effort before it becomes usable.

a viable current solution is forced population restrictions and instance utilization.

Instancing will never be a part of any idea I come up with I don't believe instancing to be a solution for anything to do with OWPvP.

Not to be dismissive, but you cant really comment fruitfully if your characters arent even entering illum. It suggests that you have little knowledge of the problems affecting this owpvp problem nor induldged in the potential that could be bought about by this solution/project.
