There's a dev tracker or dev blog post that mentioned the faction animations' balance. It didn't go into specifics, but the fact that it was mentioned made me feel a lot better about the future of the game.

It's still fun to ask lol.

Whether my Maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.

Also the whole appearance thing is completely subjective.

I think Republic looks better because everyone isn't decked out in black/grey and red...with a purple here and there.

I have played both and I can say I have enjoyed the feel of the Republic better. Dunno why...but rolling into a instance with a trooper, two Jedi, a Smuggler just feels right...

Another example of how bad republic players are.
Hmm. On our server, the Republic wins WZs much more often that the Imps do... and I'm an Imp. I can sometimes go 2 days in the 50 bracket and never win a game for the daily... and that's through farming up almost 1000 marks.

But hey, Reps are bad.

Oh, we don't need citation?

The Empire licks *** for dinner. [Citation Needed]
The Empire's budget consists of cat turds. [Citation Needed]
The Empire eats babies. [Citation Needed]

Actually, y'know, that last one is probably true...

"Make us identical by bringing our side up to par" is not at all "nerf the other side."

It's not a good thing when in every case where there's a discrepancy, the discrepancy favors the same side consistently over the other. It's a silly thing to oppose. Balance is not a bad thing.

I don't understand, though. We've got half of the community here complaining without end that the game is doomed, and the other half feverishly trying to justify that there are no problems. Maybe we can meet in the middle, and acknowledge that the game has problems, and maybe resolve to see them fixed instead of firmly placing ourselves between the status quo and an improved future product?

Ok let me make things clear to the people who cannot grasp the issue

Example A

Skill A = 1 second cast time
Skill A animation = 1 second

Animation + skill = 2 seconds

So instead of overlapping giving u animation + skill = 1 second (together)

They dont flow, they run apart. cast bar starts, halfway through you character start the animation, even when the cast bar is done your character is skill casting.

"So move after cast bar is done!!"

Well this is not the case. your infact rooted until the animation completes or you loose the skill dmg.

Example B

Instant cast skills having animations that root you in place until the animation has finished.
Smugglers dirty kick or example. Watching the beta videos you can clearly see a smuggler in pvp use dirty kick on the run. This shows that bioware have changed it to be a cast animation.

This video shows a jedi with the stutter delay causing the insta skill to have a animation time (rooted)
The perfect video to show the insta skill issue...enjoy
This video shows the skill bar full yet the skill (mount) hasnt been used or mounted. so a 1 second skill becomes a 2 second skill.

If any1 doubts this evidence please google/youtube and have fun.

Even if you win 10/10 warzone, that is irrelevant to my point.
