As an Empire player I feel very distraught over the Makeb expansion. You see, I saved Balmorra, Taris, Hoth and a whole bunch of other planets....now we are losing the war? What a waste of time...

And how many Sith have you killed during your fighting for the Empire? I believe a lot;p And now you are suprised that we're losing war...

Exactly, while the Republic is fighting the Empire for 50 levels, the Empire is busy fighting itself.

The point of levels 1-50 was the story, how could you be surprised that the empire looses?, it was a given even before they launched the game.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.

In which case, what is the point to playing a video game at all?

I feel more like it's the Empire fighting the Sith. Half of them are short sighted idiots who can't see further than their arse on a special chair, leaving the rest of us to rot at home and on the front lines.

Yes, I am bitter over Intelligence and I'll everyone on the Dark Council know what I think.

The game's storyline can't always be that the war is going 50-50 for both factions. Of course as they write the story for each expansion, one of the factions will be at an advantage either due to the Empire's in-fighting or perhaps in a later expansion due to the Republic's need to 'protect' those who can't protect themselves - leading to their forces being spread too thin.

I will not be surprised if the next expansion involves the Empire taking advantage of a weakness in Republic defense and we will see a turn in the tide of the war.

lolol you didn't save Taris. The Empire's whole purpose for being there is to ensure its' destruction....lolol

Also, Balmorra hates you.

Balmorra was lost after you " saved " it, Taris is a dump with no value, and the whole point of the Empire being on Hoth was to tie up Republic resources, which may or may not actually make a considerable difference.

Well, Empire might be losing the story-part of the game, but look at the bright side - for every PvP warzone the Republic wins, the Empire has 7 victories.

Not to mention that we cannot win when Republic has Gunslingers and Scoundrels... They can one shot any Sith Lord... Just look at what they did on Tatooine:
