Feel free to flame me at will. I have a healer on my team

Oh and btw, <Republic's Elites> on the Mandalore server is recruiting serious PvPers at this time. Please PM Tlaloc.

I have found a flaw in your logic, If all "hardcore" pvper's (I use quotes because using the word hardcore with a video game is almost a pathetic as calling yourself a such and such "Veteran") Know that the consensus of pvpers rolling badside, and the "hardcore" Pvpers roll good, wouldn't the true, true hardcore PVPers role Bad then?

But wouldnt the true, true, true hardcore PVPers know this and roll good then?

Also as empire I haven't had a que longer than MAYBE 5min, which wasn't an issue because I had plenty of other things to do.

I've found many fellow "hardcore" pvpers on Empire, which I expected.

What I've actually noticed from the Republic players is a lack of quality keybinds, a lot of keyboard turning, and the reaction time of a drunk Sloth.

I'm really hoping the Republics pvp player base improves because slaughtering you guys 3/4 of the warzones we enter wont be fun for long.
I call BS on this one.
By 3/4 of the warzones you mean Huttball right? Cause that's the only warzone that's popping for your overpopulated side. And I bet most of those are against your own faction

I always smile when ppl say hc PvP players have to go Empire ... if all of them go Emprie who will they play against ? Does hardcore mean we group up and pawn on the non hardcore You should want to play against good players, not with them.

The reason i rolled republic was the pvp indeed.
I dont wanna go into huge que times and having a hard time fiding people in world pvp, because my faction was zerging the other faction.

Now im the under dog and got low que times.

Has it occurred to any of you that there are hardcore PvPers on both the Empire and Republic? Rolling Republic has some really nice benefits for PvP... but there's a lot more to the decision of Empire vs Republic, even for a hardcore PvPer, than simply queue times or underdog status.

So hardcore PvPers roll Republic... and Empire too. Derp.

I find it amusing that people who wanted to be 'bad' rolled sith.

It's almost as if they hadn't realised you could make a dark side Jedi, which, to be honest, is far worse than a Sith fulfilling his role. Which was more shocking to you? Darth Vader killing Ben Kenobi with a red lightsabre, or Anakin Skywalker killing Jedi, with his blue lightsabre?

For me the answer was Anakin. Blue lightsabre? Some Jedi guardian of the peace he turned into.

Edit:
Ontopic, I've decided I will no longer roll a Sith Assassin. Shame really, was looking forward to it. Jedi Shadow it is.

During Beta I intended to go IA operative since it rocked pretty good. (Great skills, great story, nice style)

After the polls pointed towards a hughe invasion on imperium side, I decided to go Republic. (I'm more familiar with good side, but IA was the coolest class). Now I have rolled a Vanguard tank (badest looking equip until almost lvl 20, badest starting zone, many silly "Good" decisions)...

...but I'm lovin it.
Tank is great! having instant queues to warzones. And less crappy players in the team (usually)
