I'd like to avoid remaking my character since it would result in me losing anything I unlock, so before I decide on a faction I'd like to know what the gameplay differences between each of them are.

What are the gameplay differences between the factions?

While searching for this anwser I found a nice little chart with the differences in weapons.

The difference is:

TR: High rate of fire with less damage.
VS: Lasers and mobility
NC: High damage low attack speed.

This is a good overview of the weapons, but you should probably mention the differences in the MBTs and ESFs. – Ullallulloo Dec 4 '12 at 20:11
