I don't want to be a sw sjw, but why do devs so blatantly favor imps in favor of reps? I know imp population is larger, but can't we have something neutral
Malgus, Tulak and Leviathan for Europe.
USA got the Hot Prospect (Zayne Carrick's ship -jedi) and Star Forge (ds).

My new server will be Darth Malgus and, sure, while I somewhat appreciate the character and he's a prominent sith in swtor plot, but he's nowhere on many people's favorite list, mine included. It's a turndown.

The sith server(s).
Because Empire forever! That said, Darth Malgus is a key figure of SWTOR and the most notable face of the MMO so it shouldn't come as a surprise a server was named after him. Also I will admit that having the names of Sith Lords as the server names does make them sound cool and fierce to me, really comes of us strong and daring and I love it.

Also, I fully freely admit that I am severely biased as to this subject as I adore the Sith and the Sith Empire, especially in this era of Star Wars...
ATTENTION: Include the Twi'lek into the 3 new eye colours from Appearance Options: Expanded Selections in the next patch. It was a huge mistake to not do this from the start as they are being grossly neglected as a playable species.
Oh yeah, and this is my referral link!

But it was a surprise to me. That pathetic loser who got wiped out of history very easily by a smooth group of Republic special forces. He went down and cried like the pathetic baby that he was. I couldn't imagine anyone who deserves less to have a server named after him. I'd spit on his grave, if he'd had one. But we kicked him down the dumpster of his ship in the traditional Finish-the-ugly-Sith-way.

Seriously, I do not get the hype about Malgus. It's undeserved.

I do think that Satele is the key figure of Swtor and she should have been in the CE box, for example. In the Coruscant-trailer, most people aww'd over Shae Vizla and not Malgus, so maybe even her as a server name instead of Loser Malgus? Lots of Mando fans out there. Surely more than Malgus fans?

In order to not have Europe Sith-only, I herewith suggest that Malgus and Satele servers swap names. And all Imp-lovers get a free transfer away, so that we, at last, have peace and quiet in the galaxy.

Can we have a server "The Outlander"? I think that would not be too bad.

Adore? Really? Do you mean how it is pictured in the game, the aestetics etc. or do you mean what it stands for, like slavery, oppression, dictatorship etc.
Bioware offers a friend referal system which gives referred players a couple of goodies (incl. 7 free days of sub and a neat free inventory slot for every character) and referring players some little shinies and cartel coins.
I would be happy if you choose my referral link to grab your free goodies.

I don't like a server named after him either, probably none of the characters appearing in the class game should be used.

Malgus is for the empire what Satele is to the republic, the one you frequently interact with for flashpoints and operations. He is a to the point, rational and not a lunatic kind of Sith.

There is no other empire then the empire as it's depicted in the game

Sith servers for Europe and crappy names for the US.

DISCLAIMER: This post was not at all serious before somebody starts.....
As an Ameican living in Europe, I can actually roll with this....(though these days, it's more Europe=good guys, US=bad guys).

Amusing post.
Same here. I like Satele too, she's outlived Malgus and plays a prominent role throughout swtor. She's great. There could've been something neutral at least and I know BW has writers who can do this well. I don't fancy logging into Darth Malgus, ehhh, especially with all European server names being sith (4/5 servers overall) + it feels like betraying the republic

It's probably to reflect the imperial = British and American = Republic theme that goes on in this game gosh darn you Tarkin.
How PvP balance is achieved - Bioware please nerf paper its OP, scissors are fine as they are.
