It should be a feature of the early game access server choosing in the least.

EVERY single PvP server is going to be significantly more populated by Imperial side than Republic. There is no point in putting server numbers up, all it would do is make it painfully obvious that this is the case. In which case, the 1 or two servers that were at least closer to being even would probably see a huge influx of Republic players, while all the rest would be drained of the few they even had.

As has been intimated here already, revealing faction ratios would not serve to balance numbers. The only thing that would serve to balance numbers is if 50% of people who chose a PvP server rolled Repub, and 50% Emp. That's not going to happen. The allure of the Dark Side is simply too strong.

That said, the few servers where the Repub guilds set up shop (Only Veela comes to mind at present, and that's assuming that people posting on the forums are right. But, hey, it's the interwebs and therefore must be true.) will likely stay Repub heavy as folks will roll Light-Side there and big-bad-tough Sithies will "accidently" overlook rolling there.

The only thing knowing the numbers will do is lopside everything even further.

Seriously, it's soo important for players to be able to see the ratio of imperial vs republic to be able to balance sides. or perhaps make a lockout for certain sides until they are balanced within a 1.5 ratio? i do not want to create a permanent character on a server and have 30 min. warzone ques because there is an imbalance (especially since there aren't cross server ques).

It is probably safe to say if you are going to join Empire you are on the more populated side. There seem to be way more Empire than Republic.

Oh the irony, SWG had the Rebels (supposed underdogs) outnumbering the Imperials, and now in TOR the Imperials (smaller at this time) outnumbering the supposed dominant power the Republic.

totally agree with OP, this needs a free bump and needs to be done well before the 20th....
