Now, I know that rarely things are this strictly black and white, but for the most part, what's the suspected Alliance comparison (During WoW's earlier days, at least) for SWTOR? It seems that the Empire is the more popular side for the most part, except for places like these forums, where the more intelligent seem to reside and prefer the Republic. I'm assuming that the Empire will be the noob side, at least at the game's beginning, because of its classes looking a bit more "cool". I'd still like to be sure, because it would be most unfortunate for me to get deep into the game and learn that I'm on the side where the kids frolic. Thanks for your input!
