Will the Devs have a bias towards a certain faction?

    In WoW you hear it all the time, Blizzard is biased towards the Horde. I wonder if Carbine will favour the underdogs (Exile/Horde) over the Dominion.

    It seems unlikely. In the games where I've perceived one side being treated preferentially (and I'd say SWTOR was worse than WoW in this respect), a great deal of the problem has been due to already-existing IP that made one side cooler or sexier or more sympathetic than the other. WildStar is using new IP, so it should be easy enough to develop it in ways that are fairly balanced.

    Doubt it, but it's still too early to tell. I have faith in the testers that they'll play both sides and say which one felt better, allowing for some change. Endgame story should also be interesting but agree with above - brand new IP allowing for them to try to have their own stories for each side.

    You might hear that on the Alliance.
    If you join the horde, then you hear the exact opposite though.

    Thus there is only one logical conclusion.
    The devs are not biased to any one faction.
