EVERY single time hossin gets locked on emerald it is controlled by vs. This gives them 25%xp which also translates to 25% more certs as far as I can tell. So It looks to me like every other empire is gimped because essentially all vs get a premium memberships worth of bonuses just for being VS. Even though I play TR I really want to play NC but since the vs have a neverending 25% xp bonus I feel bottlenecked into rolling a VS character and I think this just contributes more toward server population imbalance. I can not be the only person thinking this so bump it if you agree!
