I play on the empire side, and the first 10 warzones I did 1 was vs republic on alderaan, 9 was against empire in huttball.

Is there a huge imbalance here or what the hell?

The population of the empire was about 2.1 times bigger on PvP servers as of december the 13th, maybe even more now

You don't read forums often do you ?

Yes, playin' as empire involves loving huttball games.

Yes ... random sampling of polls showed empire to republic ratios any where from: 60/40 to 70/30. We all knew empire would be the over populated site (hence we rolled republic).

FTW 70/30 is a huge 2.333:1

um yeah.

My trooper does not have a problem, but you sith people got lumped with all the kids who think its cool to be bad and so massively outnumber republic.

It was quite clear this was going to happen.

Im level 32 right now, and im very sure I could not get my guild to reroll anyhow =( I rooted for the republic because I had a hunch this would happen. I really hope that by release there will be more republic guys.

BW made a mistake by putting a 10 years old faction design into SWTOR. Neutral faction would be the way to reduce scope of the issue.

This. Things like BH could easily play this role. I also would say smuggler could fit in this catagory too.

Another is making the lightside/darkside alignment actualy change your faction... i think that would be intresting, hell the number of people who say. "I wanted to be a sage but Sorc looks cooler so ill just be a light side sorc." is riddiculus!

A third faction and open world pvp would make this negligent. Dream on, right?

For everything that seems to be good about this game this is the one thing that baffles me. Same issue over on WO between Order and Destruction. Potential for imbalance is so great with only two factions. Having three with the potential for an alliance (forced?) between the two underdogs is better.

Sadly it is obvious a huge amount of work and very unlikely to come anytime soon if at all. Just turn PVP into a free for all.
