Is Faction Imbalance going to kill World PvP?

No Republic players are going to participate in World PVP if the Empire can simply call in the Legions of Minions.

If the current pattern holds, will this spell the premature death of World PVP in ToR?

Instanced mini games and associated rewards already killed world PVP.
(once the honey moon period wears off)

Faction imbalance just put another nail in it.

Are we really talking about the death of TOR 48 hours into it? Seriously?

Same problem RIFT had. Pushing instanced PvP right at launch is a bad move. Oh well, the damage done. Nothing you can do about it now.

Faction imbalance doesn't kill World PvP. If anything it is a positive contribution to World PvP. More targets out in the world for you to start **** with. But like Jebi stated the real menace to world PvP is often the presence of instanced PvP and optimal PvP gearing paths through those mini-games.
