Maybe Vette secretly likes the shock collar hmmm? For someone who doesn't like it she sure does enough to get herself a little shock.

There were some animation delays on the republic side early on, but that was corrected.

In most cases the PvP community, the ones who really like to PvP from casual to hardcore are going to be more imperial focused. It's a theme you see throughout most MMOs, the bulk of the talent will be on the "bad guy", "evil", "dark", etc, etc side of the fence.

Not saying all pubs are baddies or anything, lot of talent there too, but you will find a lot more of PvE and RP focused players on the republic side. Even on PvE/RP servers, the PvP will be slanted to the imps and the PvE to the reps.

That's because only the most sexually frustrated, elite shut-ins among us are dedicated imp rollers that release all that pent up energy; they live out fantasies of unlimited power and smashing the good guys that always get the girl in the face with their big lightsabers. The phenomena actually speaks volumes about our server populations.

So next time some big bad marauders come leaping at you with the fury of a thousand lonely nights, remember these words and it may help you through your struggle.

This might be the reason you die in FP. Lots of healers do NOT heal dps wannabe tanks. Never go for the big elite fist in a FP. ALWAYS start with the low hp mobs and move to medium hp mobs and kill high hp mobs last. If you should be offtanking anything it should only be lowhp mobs that die fast.

PvP iīve got no idea, but in PvE i havenīt noticed any difference. Exept for some odd reason the imp comunity seems just a tiny bit more friendly. Maybe thatīs just due to total randomness of it all, but when people ask newbie questions in general chat, imp side seems to be to have less rude answers.

For those who were not here at launch or several months after... the classes were NOT identical.

A number of abilities were slightly different between counterparts that gave the sith an advantage.

Things like cool down for the sleep with IA was like 30 seconds. For Smuggler 90 seconds.

There were quite a few other advantages probably about 7 months after launch.

But I will say most of everything looks mirrored (still not sure of PT and Vanguard yet). So they did well in that aspect.

As a whole for whatever reason, pubbers seem to do better in arena with Sith, than republic.
