It's a "Known Fact"

Was on a pubic alt and heard this in a WZ:

It's a known fact that the Empire is better in PvP...

If people feel they can't win then why play? Are these like people from WoW who are into "losing is profitable"? I hated that aspect of WoW.

I don't think it's a known fact at all. I play both sides and I suck equally no matter which faction I'm on.

Last time I checked, Pubside had more PvP guilds and had better pugs at level 50 than the Impside. So don't know who you're talking about, but I think it's actually the other way around xD

I agree, it might be the other way around. Imp side has: Grim Determination and Soverign as the pvp guilds.
Where Rep side has several guilds that pvp alot like Infamous, ASB, Company, DoA and a few others i fail to remember right now. at any given time your almost guaranteed to get in a pug with a few of them.

I think both factions have an equal ratio of good players and bad players... just the republic has more of both.

Imps are starting to get better

I PvP on both sides and will say pub pugs are far superior to imp pugs.
Swear to god I saw a juggernaut in PvP with full tionesse/green gear weapons masters set. People like him is what leads to blow out matches

That was my feeling, but I am no expert. I just hate it when people give up.

Imp pugs are far, far worse than pub pugs on average. And on median. Probably on mode too.

When I see an awful pub pug I say to myself: "... Hmm ... I'll take note of him so I can gank him first/heal him last next time."

When I see an awful imp pug I say to myself: "... typical."

Can't tell you how many times I've been in a match and thought to myself "god, these guys are terrible for pubs" only to later realize it was imp v. imp.

Pretty much the same, but I've only been doing 49-under pvp on both sides. No idea what it's currently like for 50's.

First, Semah, you're awesome so take that humility thing to the curb

Second, I agree that if there's faction imbalance it's definitely in the Republic's favor. I've PVPed on both factions. In my experience, you can solo-queue on the Republic faction and still win half your matches. Impside, it's rare to solo-queue and get a win, unless you're in a premade or get put in with one. In Republic-v-Empire matches without any premades, in my experience, the Republic generally steamrolls the Empire.

That said, I rarely solo queue Impside; I'm usually with at least one other person. So maybe my perspective is flawed.

Edit: This is all 50s.
