Until Bioware posts that it is 10v1 Empire odds. Not looking like you're a good guy is now the new thing thanks to the Horde.

I'm not so sure that rolling Empire is a good idea.

Quotes from forums:
Someone crunched the numbers based on guilds and found that looking at all PvP servers, the ratio seems to be around 70:30 in favor of the Empire. If the number of characters on each side mirrors that ratio, it's going to cause some real problems I think; that's saying that imperials will outnumber republic by more than 2 to 1.
The poll in my signature has stayed around (60% Imperial) (40% Republic) for a while now.
The official class poll is about 47% republic and 53% empire.

Dev comment about faction balance from February:

http://torwars.com/2011/02/04/georg-...-swtor-forums/

(my takeaway is that they don't think they can do anything about the overall cross-server faction balance)

A thread about the pop stats of PVP PST servers as they look right now (horribly imbalanced):

I thought that Bioware was going to do something on their end to actively enforce some semblance of balance on the servers. Maybe that's just for beta though.

I doubt they will force people to play a faction they don't like, and I haven't seen any incentives for choosing republic.

I'm changing my vote to Republic PVP.

Alot of us knew this would be a possibility, I personally have no faction preference and would be willing to play Republic to alleviate que times.

I just want to roll with friends. I dont much care what side it is. from what I understand the classes are pretty much mirrored on each side. Might be fun to be a dark side Republican cant get much more evil than that.

True!

Moving on... I'm changing my vote (that I never should have made) to "don't care." The only thing I'm steadfast about is not wanting to play on a server that's overcrowded from day one. Queue times can suck it and if I sit down to play and have to wait more than 5 minutes, I'm officially done on that server.

Well, five minutes might have been a bit of an exaggeration. What I mean is, if there are five servers and 1-2 of them are clearly overcrowded and have a two-hour queue time, versus the other three that all have a 5-10 minute queue time... yea, I take the latter.

Any pvp is good it doesn't matter to me if we are out numbered, that just means we have a lot more targets to roam with gank squads and kill. My vote can be counted towards either side, as long as it's a pvp server.

I don't care which faction (whichever is underpopulated I guess? either is fine with me though). Just want a PvP server.

Looks like WoW. Starting on Alliance PvE and ending up Horde PvP.

Probably from end of May, if I'm not too far behind to catch up. And I probably will be able to catch up since MMO's aren't cruel that way as EQ was (had its charmes!). Need to graduate in May.

Guild was assigned to Port Nowhere. Currently, judging by assigned guilds' members Empire is ahead by about 2.6x the people.

Empire: 2529
Republic: 969
