Yeeeah...if you're on the Imp side at least, grinding comms takes a serious toll on your sanity unless you're running a 4-8 man premade. Every **** guild like Kingdom of Shadows and players I've never even heard of are all over 55s. Had a Civil War yesterday where 3 teammates had sub-1400 expertise. I didn't even know that was possible with the new Bolster. A guildmate said she likes to PvP on the Pub side now because 'its nice to get carried by Bad Company and Credit Shot every game.' Lulz. Getting min-maxed is going to be a fun process.

Yeah imperials really suck on this server. I feel pretty bad for them. I don't think i've lost a wz to them in a looonnng time. I am pretty sure its just a nasty cycle where they get whooped, and just stop queing.

I dislike being on the "Winning" faction. Back on my old server for the first 4 or so months after launch, Imps dominated PvP, and I loved being pubside. Over time, losing enough times taught me and my friends how to be winners and win in PvP, against the "best" teams.

Now, I'm not saying the teams that are on this server aren't incredible, but I've seen better plays from older guilds that are no longer on this server. So, if you're a random impper now, just keep trying. As long as you keep improving, you'll eventually be fine. The majority of Pvpers here who are good, are good because they've spent hundreds, and often times thousands of hours on their classes and the game in PvP, so experience > all else. I'm excited to see gearing being looked at by Bioware, simply because I want their to be a "zero" gear gap. I was one of the first scoundrels on my old server to be in complete full min/maxed WH gear, and the ONLY reason was because I was unemployed and I had too much time on my hands. I love to see that go, and PvP gear is all cosmetic. Bring it back to skill, not who has more time.

Anyways, that was a bit of a tirade, but yeah. Expect the bads to be bad, because they always will. But ya never know, they could learn quickly and even pass you up in skill level too. I used to try to run pugged rank WZs on the impside, and the ONLY reason was to teach players more advanced mechanics for PvP. That's it. If people are less concerned with wins, and more concerned with fun and teaching, we'll be better off.

Ok, so that was scatterbrained, but yeah. :P

Basically what he said /\

What the imps really need is a guild on their side like immortal or cred shot that has a main focus in pvp and strives to be the best. Right now there are a few good pvp'ers in a handful of imp guilds. They need to go in as one and inspire the others.

Well, the two best imp pvp guilds either left the game or left the server a while ago :/

We are out there, dont worry about that. Sadly, as previously said every Tom, Dick and Harry are solo queueing imp side rather then full 4s or 8s like pubs. Maybe all the pubs should try solo queues and see how they like it

Has any ranked gone down since 2.o or we still all gearing?

I solo queue, I'm imp and I still love it. I wouldn't even know where to begin on joining a group for ranked. There are not really many imp guilds that scream "we only pvp and we are really amazing at it".
The disparity between pub and imp non-ranked is massive, but as someone else mentioned, that just means there more room to learn.

We've been forming and queuing as groups of four all week to gear up and have done just fine vs Pub side. Yes there are more organized groups on the Pub side and WAY more healers. With that said, as long as I've queued with four man groups, we've had good success. Had some real good matches with Immortal, Bad Company, Credit Shot, Crimson Elite and others. We tried queuing for awhile in ranked last night, but I guess no one else is doing it yet. I look forward to some good ranked battles in the near future. I will update our schedule when I can, for now it is:

Wed - Practice/gear nights. Four man groups running normal WZ. If good mix and interest is there, we'll queue for ranked.

Fri/Sun - Ranked nights. Should be in queue around 7-10 Central time. Hoping to have enough interest to get 2 groups going if we get enough geared and interested.

Make sure you pop over to the republic side and let us know your queing. CE had interest last night but didn't bother sitting in queue that long.

We usually rank on wed nights.
