Republic is awful at pvp, consider before you choose.

Give people some time and hopefully they will learn the mechanics of the battlegrounds.

I'm already seeing big improvements in some fields. People rushing objectives in void star while defense spreads, groups leaving 3-4 defenders on turrets in civil war and actually facing the capture node where as before I (a lone operative) could often take the node from the rear unnoticed. Huttball is all about passing and using a chain of players to get it into the endzone. Right now people try to rambo the ball and never pass even when they are at 25% health and being snared.always pass the ball if you are going to die, even if you are just going to reset it to middle.

Have to agree with OP. I haven't kept an actual count but if I had to guess, I'd say on my server we average a 15-20% win rate on repub side on a good day. Most days so far it's been 10% or less. Of the loses, around half are complete crushing defeats (Ala losing VS without ever getting past the first objective)

Definitely have seen some great players on repub side but by far they are the extreme minority.

Has it occurred to you that you might just be bad at PvP? Or playing your class wrong? Take a gander at the class forums, read up on the proper PvP spec/play style, and find something you like.

On Tertantek, the empire has a clear VERY clear advantage. Voidstar isn't even fair. Empire will always get the obj, yet the republic will never leave the first room.

I knew empire had a clear advantage. During their first preview of the game at Comic Con San Diego they ran pvp count rep vs empire and empire had 2 times the wins as republic everyday.

That's the thing with losing streaks ... all the loses have one thing on common ... the player.

I'm old as Yoda's sack and I went Empire. The mature part not so much

Republic seems to kick our asses quite a bit in warzones must be your server. Best to keep blanket statements like that to your self.

On tertanek as well. I love VS apart from this bug.
