I suggest you actually play on The Harbinger during Aussie peak hours insted of just making stuff up.
I play on Harbinger after work, and it's the complete opposite of Ghost Town. Always multiple instances of fleet, planets, always get warzone and HM FP pop. True it's better to play during their peak for more consistant echelon of players, but I can do that on the weekends.
Since the start of 1.7 - when I get home and go to Ilum, there has been up to 16 instances running. And this is during Aussie peak time.
Perhaps the APAC population would be better if the people spending all this effort to get people to come play with them on US servers CONTINUED to play on the APAC servers.
