Those of you who have played both Republic and Imperial characters, I would love to get your opinion. Having not yet made my Imperial character, I can only offer the perspective of a Republic player. After several weeks now, I have a good idea of how the Rebel Alliance felt when facing the Empire. The ratio of Republic to Imperial wins on our server seems to be very poor. But apparently, this is a common trend in many servers. And while it is undeniable that there are more Imperial players than Republic players, there is definitely this feeling of being outclassed and outgunned. And while it's challenging but bearable much of the time, there are days where it kills morale and motivation for others to continue playing. Part of the problem is that these wins contribute to dailies and weeklies. So if the imps win 10 of the 12 matches, they are gearing up at an extremely fast rate compared to the Republic who may have to spend 6-8 hours of PVPing just to get 3 wins for the daily. The only consolation being that they count towards the weekly as well so 3 dailies in a row = 1 weekly win. But couple that with more medals and mvp votes and wins = more commendations, and the armor domination just gets worse and worse. Right now, I believe the current highest armor rank in PVP is Battlemaster. This is what many sith are now running with while many Republic players are just now completing the Centurian armor and moving on to Champion sets and only a handful that I've seen have a full Battlemaster set (if that). This also seems compounded by the knowledge that imperial pvpers had bugs they could exploit to their advantage. Apparently Alderaan Civil War had a turret that fired two shots instead of one if it was captured by Imperials. Not to mention they could bring in up to 12 players somehow while republic forces were stuck with 8. And, the original randomness of champion armor seems to have greatly benefited the imperials. Finally, there are the classes themselves. The imperials seem to have abilities that (perhaps at first glance) are more effective than those of their Republic counterpart. As good as healers on the Republic can be, we can be run through far faster than the Imperial healers. It is also more likely to find healers ganged up on by the lightning powers of the sorcerer which I believe are comparable (though perhaps more formidable) to the telekinetic throw sages have. Which leads me to this lingering question. It seemed evident from the interviews and promotion that Bioware was rather excited for their Bounty Hunter and Sith class characters. I didn't necessarily always see that same enthusiasm for Republic characters. And given that imperials do seem to have the edge in several noticeable ways, one has to wonder: Is there are bias? Is it unbalanced? Or do all Republic players just fail at playing PVP?
