Look, the first thing that happened to me when I logged in for the singular time in a few months was I got jumped by 2 Imps on Ilum. Well i killed them both and had enough health left to kill them all over again right away if it were possible for them to rez that fast. Now that's an absolute embarrassment.

Just out of curiosity, was it level 50 Imps running around a lower level planet killing Pub's, or was it Imps of area appropriate level?

If it's just a level 50 gank squad terrorizing Tatooine, why would anyone leveling up bother to even try?

If it's so bad, maybe some of the Imp's could roll some Pub alts?

If I have a limited amount of play time and am trying to accomplish some goals before work/bed/whatever, why would I want to drop everything just to engage in PvP that earns me nothing?

I'm sure we aren't getting the full story here but even on PvP servers PvE is the predominant play style since world PvP doesn't accomplish anything. If I got XP or something then maybe but otherwise I'll just keep on doing whatever it is I'm doing.

This isn't a contest of pride, it is a game that is played for enjoyment. If some tweens decide that it's fun for them to go gank a bunch of people that's fine but don't expect everyone to drop what they are doing to "counterattack".

I'm curious which server this was happening on.

if it was on pot5 (which I doubt), open /who and check for members of 'pax republica' and just ask them if they might help - or at least give a shout-out on the fleet (or message people on the fleet directly) - obviously there are a lot more guilds out there who are always up for 'avanging' our lowbies or starting some trouble with the imps, but I don't want to name any just in case they wouldn't appreciate it :P

if you are .not. on pot5, reroll

So, I feel it is unfair for you to get frustrated becasue people don't want to drop whatever they are doing and have planned for the days play for them... to come help you out.

IMO.... you need to stop criticizing fellow server-faction members and either join an active and like minded PvP guild or spend some time to make PvP friends and network in game for like minded people. Emphasis: like minded people who have the same desires as you and a willingness to pursue them adhoc.
Opinions are opinions... and in my opinion, yours is wrong . There is absolutely no reason to play on a PvP server if you dont want to do world PvP, and trash talking is probably one of the staples of PvP in any game. If you dont want to wold PvP or be called out for it when youre wimping out, then dont play on a PvP server.

Of course, you have to keep in mind most people dont want to bother unless they have a good chance of winning. Thats why 99% of the PvP you see on a PvP server is one-sided ganking, and its why I never bother with PvP servers in any MMO anymore. At least not until someone comes up with a world PvP thats actually interesting(like Warhammer), or puts at least a minimal amount of effort into it(unlike SWTOR).

BW could help us out by adding an incentive to open world PvP. Like others have posted, people want to get to max level and spending half an hour killing/dying in open world PvP is fun for some, it isnt for others. If they can come up with a system that gives incentives for losing/winning (like WZs do) open world PvP than I bet a lot more people would be doing it. I don't mind doing it for one. maybe two battles cause its fun...but there's no incentive after that.

Hi,
i really dont care about planet side PVP. For me, it's time waste. I dont attack, just defend when attacked. Reason is, there is no reward. BW should address this. Sometimes i help if there is Black Hole massive fight. It's fun (sometimes). But planet side PVP? Meh ..

It was on PoT5 if I know what fight this thread is about. I was there for the majority of the fighting split between my healer and a dps. Republic turnout was pretty bad. Had some reps ask our group to leave so the imps would get bored. What's the point of rolling on a PvP server then?

Republic had from 6-8 players(some fresh 50s) at a time vs the imps 12 who had majority of WH gear.

well, then I don't know. every time I am on tatooine there's 'help' around shortly after when the imps keep messing around.

but my original tips still apply: write members of the guild who are up for 'getting busy' (not saying they will always help, sometimes there are things scheduled after all) or write to random people on the fleet if they can give shout outs for help.

of course, one part of the 'problem' is the 50s in WH gear ganking lowbies for hours. I will never understand that part of PVP simply because i am more of a 'I like a challenge' person

This.

And the OP admitted in his post that he KNEW it would be the way he's on about when he signed up..............but he's still on about it! People don't play the game the way I think it should be played! How embarassing!
