The highest ranked Pub on Pot5 has dropped off the first page. Only 4 of us left in the top 100. If we don't all magically queue at the same time, it is painful. Considering transferring back to Shadowlands. Much better Imp/Pub ratio there.

I guess I just wind up getting the teams that don't know how to focus down the healer first.

It's a player and community issue, not biowares. It will sort itself out when cross server ques come in though m

There are so many mouthbreathers on rep side it's not even funny anymore.
I stoped playing my Guardian not even gonna bother to finish his Obroan, I can't take it anymore.
Loser 'dps' sages everywhere, getting farmed like absolute nubs.
I care about your gaming 'problems' and your teenage anxieties, just not today.

It is in a way BW's fault. The main reason, IME, to why pubs lose is because the average pub think it's a good idea to roll sage or commando. I'm not sure why so many roll sage but commando is pretty obvious, they want to play a stormtrooper. Had there been some form of class balance, and I'm refering to what an average player can do on a class in comparison to on another class, it wouldnt have been an issue. While it may seem like more imps roll fotm classes I think it's just a matter of there not being a given "lore class", so it's more spread out, resulting in better balance.

That said, the pub side used to be good on tofn but something has drastically changed over the past couple of months. I had a 96 win % while leveling my first char there, around 85 % on the second but now it's probably down to 40 % and a good deal of those 40 % games arent because we're better. It's because the players act so retarded, with constant node swapping, that the other team can't make any sense out of it. They're basically flukes while getting farmed. I've given up on two lvl 46 pubs and rolled the imp mirrors instead because of this. You literally lose braincells trying to make any sense out of how the pubs act and in many cases it feels like they would have lived longer if they had been idle. You can't even make much of a difference on scoundrel outside arena because one of those commandos is harder to maintain than three maras.

Imperials have damage dealers and the Republic have healers.

This, at least, seems to be the case on The Red Eclipse. That is not to say that either site have neither, but there is often a clear imbalance present. I fondly recall a recent Rep vs. Rep Void Star where both teams had so many healers and so few damage dealers that neither team were able to get past the first doors.

Then why do people prever one faction over the other ?

I tend to agree to this as well. People tend to play more aggressively-looking characters, I guess. People LOVE Gangstas.

It has something to do with human psychology, I tend to believe.

Sounds reasonable to me. Everybody wants easy wins.

To me, this is a slight hint towards imperial faction favouritism as well - the Empire side just had more artistic freedom.

Which fits relatively good to my theory of imperial faction players being more aggressive in general than republic faction players.

That, plus the fact that the Sage class is much more squishy, and on the imperial side, I suspect that the Sorc is more played in DD spec than in healing spec. But that's just a suspiction I hold.

I do not know of a reasonable way they can fix, and if there is one, I don't think they will do it. They already are working on space PvP and taking forever to just do class balances. Besides that, this is more of a community problem than a game problem.

I'm not sure how seriously worried they are about ranked PvP either. Seems like they dropped it in and then have not said a word about it since. "Here you go. Now shut up PvPers!"

I've got a mara and a sent on POT5. Same spec, same gear. The mara has ~20 wins, 10 losses and a ~1300 rating, the sentinel has around an ~1100 rating with roughly the same number of games played. It's definitely a different experience (or maybe I just had a bad couple nights).
