Why Empire is doomed

Palpatine's rise to power was based on Hitler's rise to power. So to say it's the results of bad writing is idiotic. It was based on historic fact.

Kaas was built there because of the Dark Temple and its also very strong in the dark side of the force. The emperor rules from there and no other reason is it deemed the capital. if the emperor ruled from a starship, the starship would become the capital. its the same reason why Luke builds his Praxium on Yavan 4. The location is easy to defend, out of the way, and strong in the light side of the force.

Pretty much. What is it the Sith Inquisitor can say? "The Empire's intolerance is one of it's greatest weaknesses, even as the Republic's unquestioning acceptance makes it bloated and inefficient". It rather aptly summed up my stance on the matter.

Not that I'd say the Republic is unquestionably accepting, but still.

The Republic however is weak, it never really recovered from the events of Kotor and Kotor2, it has planets seperating from it, and signs of internal corruption and general incompetence.

To say that the Empire is doomed at this stage is premature, or rather it is premature to say that the Republic will win, or even survive. While the Republic does get it's act together, IT IS A CLOSE THING, it almost fails numerous times.

Admittedly the Empires social and political scene is self-destructive. But quite a few nations here on earth have been just as self-destructive, or lock into a mutually destructive path with another country, and gone on to survive.

Besides the point is to experience the story, to get to know the Star Wars Universe, how is that pointless.
well if u go by the films 4-6 empire is almost if not already no more (for now) just saying the films are kinda the biggest spoiler to this game lucky for us tor fans theres noway u could explain your toons living for 3000 years ;p
Voyseiri - 50 vanguard, Zi'Kino - 50 sentinal, Nosrionel - 50 gunslinger, Libieso - 50 shadow, Llorak - 50 powertech, Mibanax 50 - Sorc, Reiqui - 50 Juggernaut and a few lowbies

I thought it was based on jullus ceaser rise to power:
You know being very populair, having the masses worship you, commanding the strongest militery force to the point senators dont dare to say no.

It happens quiet often in history that charsamatic figheur's make republic's into empire's simply because they seem more comptend then the republic there "fixing"
knowledge is power.
use it well.

Good players take any and all advantages they can get, actually. It's why they are good.

The OP is of course, right. A Sith Empire could never conquer the galaxy because they would inevitably succumb to infighting and tear themselves apart. This is the reason for the creation of the Rule of Two. Bane recognized that if power was shared amongst many Sith, these lesser Sith would ultimately combine forces and kill their leader, in doing so weakening the Sith or destroying it completely. That's why he created the Rule of Two, to protect against infighting and make the Sith strong. Two there should be; no more, no less. One to embody power, the other to crave it.

So your wrong to say that Sidious was the only smart Sith Lord. Revan had the idea. But Bane perfected it and the other Sith that followed him followed the rule as well. This lead to the eventual destruction of the Jedi and the Republic. However, although the Sith where free of infighting, repressed people will always rebel and so it was inevitable that the Empire would eventual be destroyed by an uprising of the people. So in a nutshell - evil doesn't work. Why do I love it? Because its fun while it lasts.

The whole idea of Revan inspiring the rule of two doesn't make sense. Not only was it not really the case, (all his force sensitive underlings were still sith) but even if you go by the Dark Lords doing the one Master/one Apprentice thing, Revan and Malak weren't the first either. Exar Kun and Ulic Quel Droma did that before them.

The underlings were never true Sith, they never held any real power. Revan taught to train only one apprentice at a time, while Kun trained a whole brotherhood

The Empire knows where to pull their strings economically, unlike the Republic. The Empire has always obtained the greater fleets and army size, its because they have the bigger resources and economic power. In fact, the Republic was almost destroyed because the Mandalorians (secretly working for the Empire) performed a blockade. This almost made the Republic force surrender UNDER ECONOMIC PURPOSES.

Lets not forget that the 2nd half of Kaas is entirely under construction. No really, one area is the site of a huge monument and resources while the other is the start of a complete expansion. Even the NPCs state that they are expanding at an alarming rate.

The Empire takes their resources while the Republic tries to negotiate for them. This is what makes the Empire stronger economically. Shame that their lust of power often creates shattering betrayals.

Which is why an Empire without the Sith would be a powerful force to be reckoned with.
