I dislike how 'evil' a lot of the Empire is but playing my Jedi drove me insane with how overly goody goody the Jedi are and how almost every choice has my charactar saying something along the lines of 'The light side of the force will do everything!!1!!' of course I always found the whole light side and dark side thing silly in Star Wars. The smuggler and BH on their sides make no sense overall and really I have the choice between playing a criminal who is there for the sole reason of lolHanSolo or a Bounty Hunter who hunts said criminals and isn't actually 'evil'. Then there's the whole fact that the Republic isn't as 'good' as they seem when you see how corrupt they are and just try to hide it while the Empire just doesn't bother. Course there's also the fact that my Inquisitor's story is 100 times better than the Consular's.

I usually prefer playing "good" characters however, after beta I came to realize that the Empire side had more flavor.

I am playing a sith warrior and mostly go for light side points. However, there is enough edge that I can gleefully go dark side and have it feel right.

I noticed the Project vs. Shock thing in beta. Did they normalize the damage of these abilities based on the additional delays for Project? If not, that is unfortunate.

I like the idea of being my own person and not following doctrine. That acquring and maintaining power doesn't always have to be heavy handed "evil" but can be acheived by more subtle means. That killing your subjects means that eventually you will have no more subjects left, and that by being more pragmatic a more solid rule can be obtained.

Which reminds me I need to look for better light sabers.

None of you understand. I'm not locked in here with you. You're locked in here with me!

No way...

There's a guild on my server that says "too old for sith".

In this game, Sith are ridiculously angry emo-goths with deep seated emotional problems, "you talk when you're talked to, I'm in charge here" -  so you're in charge huh, uuuh, cry some more, baby *rolleyes*.

Real superiority is wearing a brown ragged robe, giving everything to charity and owning a guy in the face and telling him afterwads that he still has much to learn.

Plus Coruscant over Dromund Kaas anyday. 

Plus, Gunslinger dual blaster Smuggler is about 100 million times cooler than any of the Imp classes.

All in all, Imperial is a kids choice in my book, and that's after I had tried all imperial tutorial making it to level 18 with a bounty hunter...

Well on my server (Warrior of the Shadow) Republic wins 90% of the Alderaan and Voidstar matches that I have been in. I clearly rolled the more superior side :)

Agreed! Best ability in the game!

BH belongs with the empire as much as smuggler belongs with the republic. Immersion yeah right...

It's simple, the Sith are not about justified action, nor moral adherence. They'll pay BH's to hunt down rebels/ repubs, the republic is far less likely to use such means to meet an end.

Smugglers have a lot more problems for their trade under imperial rule, while the Republic does not support their trade, under their rule there are far more lanes of business. All of this is written numerous times into SW lore, so in the sense of SW immersion, it's exactly how it usually is in the SW universe.

I played Republic at first, then switched to Empire. Yes, there are tons more people playing. However, after seeing the type of people attracted to Empire I had to switch back to Republic.

Now, this may just be due to so many more people playing Empire vs. Republic. Or a combination of the certain people who will be attracted to Empire(teenaged lonely hateful emos) and there are so many they are bound to bicker with each other nonstop.

The sad thing is this is on a RP server. I wish a game dev would have the balls to enforce some modicum of common sense on RP servers. RP servers used to be a respite from the idiots, but its like the idiots found this out and have to flock there to ruin the atmosphere. And, yes, one is an idiot who rolls on an RP server, makes an idiotic name, and then goes to general chat to talk about everything except SWTOR.



 I play on one of the pvp/rp servers and I've seen no difference between either side as far as demeanor of the players goes. Both sides of the chat are bad and getting worse, I end up keeping General Chat off until I need to get into a group for a Flashpoint.
