Competitive Interest in Republic PvP

Ok, so I think Whiskey has done a great job at getting the ball rolling about Republic PvP. What is happening in reality though, imo, will only cause drama. Imps running dailies to carry the reps for a few hours wont fix anything. And from what I have seen, aside from whiskey, the imps form premades, do their dailies, then head back to impside.

So, I would like to see how much interest there is in MAINING repside PvP with the intent to form a serious competitive PvP guild. With a discussion with a good scoundrel healer, we agreed that the main issue seems to be more that Republic side PvP doesn't offer a competitive PvP guild that draws serious PvPers to this faction. The after math being that the serious PvPers head impside to join the competitive guilds.

<Titans> was the closest Rep got to "competitive" PvP.

I think we can all agree we dont want that kind of drama back.

If thats the case, then you can live with having bad PvPers on repside and continue to get carried by Imp alts. You have to create a reason for serious pvpers to be there, or else what will happen is what already has. Marketing is huge.

Not gonna lie, I have no idea who <Titans> were. lol

Names that stick out from dead guilds that were competitive on rep side? <The Azure Blades>, <Game Genie>, <Inconceivable>, <Zen>, and I'm sure there are a couple that I'm missing. But vaguely do I remember any guild tags with <Titans>. Was like a random member here and there and that's it, but I wouldn't use competitive unless you were in ranked somewhere and stuck with it. No offense but you're over inflating it a bit.
I replaced my D movement key with G, so instead of WASD, I have SWAG.

No offense Sting, but I won't join because I don't care for that name. And on top of that, and this is all on me, nothing against you, but I can't stand healers that don't even know how to hard CC someone attacking them. Like I said, all on me.

As far as <Titans>, I never really heard of ya either, nor did I see much of you around. I'm with Bast'rus on that one.

And Bast'rus, yes, those are the guilds that left their mark. The guilds that I would consider a competitive PvP guild. Long term, I would like to see something like that again. Of course, Rome wasn't built in a day, and anyone who thinks that this will be to that level anytime soon is dreaming. Squad 6 play together a long time before they became Game Genie.

In all honesty, I would love to see a guild like the original <Azure Blades> before the <Zen> break off.

To become a competitive pvp guild, there has to be a number of things, voice comms, practice and the ability to give and take constructive criticism. It would also have to screen applicants and well to be honest be stringent in it's selection of new members.

I vaguely remember seeing <Titans> right before I quit (around this time last year), after transfers opened up and everyone left.. Not really competitive at that point, and I don't recall any regs domination.
