It happening on PotF because that's what server I'm on, and I'm for it.

It's another game launch but with PVP restrictions and more new players who are less serious. Not unusual in a POT5 sub-50 to see mostly jr. smashers with a cartel MH, no OH, green armor, and other empty slots. Also players with names like fkjsaldfjafkajdfa or the cool today/dumb tomorrow variety.

Faction pop-wise I don't see much of a difference when logging into either. But there's definitely a lot more imps queueing for sub-50 PVP.

Huh...they must all be daytime players?! Most Imp teams at night are decent, it's the Pubs that are totally hit or miss in my experience.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

I would say it is mostly because the Repubic storylines are as dull as hell. If I were a new payer, I would want to be on the cool, interesting, murder-filled side.

Have this on begeren colony imperial side as well. People in 50s walking around with 10 and 11k health, still using leveling greens and have empty slots for relics and such. When we lose, it's usually because they don't pay attention to objectives or know what to do. Sometimes we will have 4 people camping a node, and they get ninja capped and we lose. Everyone wants to be dath vada though.

Is this thread a serious question? They all went empire for the same reason EVERYONE went empire when the game launched and server populations were at 30% rep 70% emp for MONTHS.

#1 REASON:
Everyone wants to be darth maul or vader or be a sith lawd shooting lightning

Bioware themselves said they were going to play empire, and its clearly visible which side they spent more dev time on. Bioware made the Republic side horrible, and their class stories even worse. Even the republic species/races are horrible. They are basically all human.

Bioware f*cked this game up from day 1

To be fair I've killed way more Jedi with my Dark Side Shadow than Sith.
