The attractiveness of the sides is subjective. Horde is more popular in WoW and the Empire was more popular in SWG. This trend is seen across many MMOs. People like playing the bad guys. It has nothing to do with some falsely perceived bias on BWs part.

Because you chose it, and appeal is subjective.

Especially because of it makes playing a healing class pointless currently. It would be nice IF you could switch off the titles players use all the time and having only shown the NAMES of them, so you could quickly recognize who needs health and if it's too complicated to click him/her in the crowd -> quickselect via F-Keys. But with all those titles flowing around in front of and behind the names ... it's ... oh my. (And I'm not even showing enemy nameplates ...)

Guess why I rolled a PowerTech DD now, and parked my IA Healer. It's NO fun.

The focus-target could need some rework too, like locking the focus target so you do not lose it if you switch to another while it's active, so you could get it back quickly if you hit your assigned key.

i agree that PvP is the biggest joke on this game.

i cant believe after all this years of developement they havent made 1 single good warzzone.

the pvp which exists is soo freaking unbalanced that it doenst make any fun.

always the same.

essential moves like kneeling to shoot (scoundrel) is so bugged that you cant even use it or if you want to use it it takes 20seconds to get into position. while other classes spamm their attacks without a break.

some classes feel fast and direct while other classes feel like the fly in the honey.

some healer classes like the sith sorcerrer heal everything so fast you cant even get them down, while a scoundrel with a 20level + advantage cant heal the damage of a drunken faceroller who just arrived after hitting level 10.

its so sad i need to log WoW (cant see this xxxx anymore) to have fun in PvP. But the WoW PvP is amazing and somuch more fun.

why dont you just copy this............

Raid frames bugging, auto-disband and clumsy targeting is a problem yes. The rest of the OP's complaints are meh..

You could of waited 15-20mins or more for a game if it wasn't for huttball, you have any idea how much overpopulated sith are all across the servers?
Stuns don't have DR but you get immune with the resolve mechanic, also all stuns can be dispelled.

However if you consider running around pillars and playing 40min cancer inducing 2v2s a challenge, this is not the game for you.

I am used the using the Target nearest enemy player function from wow, i don't care for how the one in this game works, but that's a personal gripe that i'm sure i'll get over.

As far as the "gimmicks" go i rather enjoy them. They destroy bad players. Learn about positioning and it becomes a non-issue.

I think people really are unaware of the fact that this game was technically released 5 days ago. Think back to your favorite games pvp content/mechanics/whatever and what it was like at launch. I agree there's a bit of an issue with the targeting but I've yet to see BW say they weren't going to fix anything.

P.S. PTR is up which generally means you can expect changes to the game.
