I just really started PVPing on JC recently so I don't have 1000's of WZ matches under my belt, but it has been a horrific experience. True, its been mostly me running in solo queues but damn the ish is terrible. I started my PVP career 0 - 35 and was tired of getting ROFLSTOMPED by Repub pre-mades, being the only one to try and get the door on Voidstar, being the only one trying to cap nodes in CW or Novare, and listening to dumb asses talking about topping damage while getting our asses kicked and getting double capped in Hypergate to name a few of my wonderful experiences in Imp-side PVP. I would have rage quit but by dumb luck I queued with the few competent players and won a few WZ's which gave me a little hope.

With the expansion coming and effecting a gear reset and essentially a fresh start, do you think Imp PVP will improve or do I have to accept that it is what it is and there is no hope.

Happens on the imp side every day it seems. Reps are more organized and they dominate the PvP scene. Solo q'n will lead you to frustration because the pugs are god awful. If you queue on the rep side, you'll get your weekly done in a few hours. Imp side will take days sometimes. Just try to group with other people and ask for help if you need it, some of us don't mind lending a hand to others. PvP dynamics will change, skills, strats, and ideas will be made, but the players will stay the same in all honesty. Don't expect a change in the player base, the only changes are that they get more buttons to push to activate skills they don't know how to use.

I retired my Sage last night and went back to my Sorcerer. Last night I went 2-1 and today was 7-4 all as a solo queue. Granted 4 of the 5 losses were horrible. And I quit 7 matches before they started (but I do this also on rep side) It seemed to me it was very similar to what I would have done on my sage. Again this is only a small sample but we will see as I will be spending way more time on my Sorcerer now.

Its probably gonna be really bad at the start, not gonna lie. WZs will be further bracketed into 10-29, 30-54 and 55 so chances are there will be MANY more sub-50 pugs that have less skill tree tanlents and abilities as well as PvP experience. The best thing you can do is group as they mentioned, watching videos of your class and reading guides will help you as well though

Imp pvp seems to be getting better actilually there are more competant randoms now then their used to be. When 2.0 hits knock on wood soloquers should be able to win more then they used to. Obviously you are still going to have those couple losses that make you rage. But in my opinion 2.0 should be even playing ground.

I'd say it would be somewhat better for pugs at least at the start. Now a lv 50 pug has the chance to either fight a lv 50 enemy in full wh or a lv 30 in leveling greens. Even if the bolster system is improved, the difference in abilities learned and skill point could make it easier.

I cant Imagine solo queuing in the 30 - 54 bracket. with my luck (Or Karma) I will load into a warzone with 6 players level 30 to 40. If I don't find my toons a home before 2.0 goes live I'll probably just not do any PVP until I hit 55. I can't go back to lowbies as a solo queuer.

Only reason why Imp pvp seems to be getting better is because repiub pugs are getting worse. Especially with all the new 50's as of recent there are more and more people who magically decide to pvp and think they know what theyre doing, but when they actually don't causing more losses for repubs. Its come to the point where I don't want to solo que anymore.

Imo no, you'll still have the same playerbase while rep side will see a lot of old faces return. Last i heard watchmen were coming back as well.
