Ilum is a mess and they're paying for it with massive backlash from the community and it's justifiable in this case.
The issue ultimately stems from the imbalance in the factions which, from what I hear, heavily favors Imperial over Republic in most cases. It basically boiled down to the video below:
That reminds me of the situation I was in the first time I decided to quit WoW after being talked by my friends into a pvp server.
Wow that does look bad. What does this bug entail? Groups of a faction accessing areas they shouldn't? Or is it just due to most people prefering to play Sith? If it's the latter I don't really see how they can address people wanting to play that particular faction over playing as the rebel scum that the Rebellion is.
