I think Y'vaine/JcPogi really hits the nail on the head with this comment!
I know Bioware has counter argued they want to give the APAC community the choice of which server they play on but I do think a gamer, regardless of their intentions to RP or PvP would rather be on a well populated server than a server with very low population.
I find the argument their making under the guise of choice to be counter productive by offering choice of server type
They have made the issue of population worse
The apac region gamer population especially Aus Nz is quite small compared to other regions
And already spread thin across many games and regardless of your preferred server type 3 servers are unnecessary in this region
