Returning to game

I am returning to SWTOR after being gone a VERY long time. Is the population about the same on both sides? I can’t to decide on which character I want to play to get started.

It goes up and down, many of us are active on both sides. Empire side does muster enough for an Op run on Saturday night. Things are picking up with the new expansion about to drop on 10/22.

Play what you like, glad you’re back!

Awesome! Well I have both sides on the server, but I wanted to figure out what to concentrate on. I started an assassin and mercenary since I never played it in release. My main was a juggernaut tank. I am starting new though since I forget everything.
