I've made it up to Tat now but I have yet to run into any opposing faction on my PvP server... Can any share where and when the action begins?

thanks.

This.

BW is funneling any and everyone into WZs even on PvP servers as there are no incentives to pvp in Open World.

Check my thread here and please add your support: http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=50161

Queued, instanced, tired WZ's should NOT be the primary form of PvP on PvP servers, and OWPVP needs to be rewarded, to make it worthwhile other than for lulz.

Agreed.

I did manage to find a tiny touch of PvP on Tatooine, I was killed once, played stealth tag once and got one kill so three times had a chance at OPvP, all in the space of about 8 hours on the planet and I did spend at least 2 of those actively looking for Republic players to kill.
Only through conflict do we realize our true potential. Peace only leads to decay.

Have run into 3 solo imps on Tatooine and only played on the world for about 20 minutes, will see alot more roaming around at the higher level worlds, where people aren't so afraid of getting ganked.

Wow, pretty lame.

So what is the difference again between PvE and PvP servers if there is no open world PvP action?

Im on Alderaan atm. Seen plenty of world pvp so far. Think i was running across a Sith every 2-5 minutes and my Vanguard just went on a "Havoc" killing spree.
Shame there isnt world pvp incentives, hope they do add incentives and not just for the "open world pvp planets (Ilum)"

and Ilum is a bit of a joke atm... guess they didnt have a enough time to finish it or its just badly designed.

Also I hate the fact that there are certain areas on the map you cannot go (sith areas) because of invisible walls... they really need to get rid of that...im mean thats what a PVE server is for.

No incentive? a 1 on 1 is incentive enough for me to open world PvP... That's cuz I'm a pvper and not just pvping so I can be offered something...

TBH that incentive is enough for me too. Just a large portion of people dont see it that way and want items or gear from it.

I say give it to them, as i want world pvp to be strong.
