Server Pop and You. (Lets make it happen)

Greetings fellow players and gamers,

As you all may know, the server populations have been down significantly from their previous numbers at the launch. BW has stated that mergers and transfers are coming soon, but most players would agree that BW's definition of soon and the playersí definition is probably not the same.

However, letís face it, we wanted a Star Wars MMO and BW and EA had the balls to attempt it, granted we may have done some things differently. Still, I think we should cut them a little slack, it's not like we're being ignored, itís just some understaffing issues (most likely).

So here is what I propose; let's take some control here. I am going to start with the PvP East servers and hopefully others will take the initiative and organize their own manual mergers.
There are 27 servers that fall into this category, including The Fatman. In order complete this merger there must be some compromises. Yes, it does suck, and yes you are going to have to reroll. But at least it's now and not after the next patch, truly, the sooner, the better. This will have a great impact on the overall quality of the game. So don't waste any more time and just reroll. Take your whole guild with you too. Maybe the free char transfer will be up soon and you will get your char back, or maybe you just reroll the same class and say, "eff it." W/e you choose, as long as you DO IT!

Hereís how itís going to work; I am going to list the servers that are low pop and request that players move to specified higher pop servers (this is so that the least number of people may have to reroll).

-Anchorhead, Belgoth's Beacon, Bondar Crystal, and Cho Mai players should move to Darth Malak.

-Davik's Estate, Death Wind Corridor, Firkrann Crystal, Gardens of Talla, and Hedarr Soongh players should move to Helm of Graush.

-Infinity Gate, Kinrath Spider, Naddist Rebels, and Port Nowhere players should move to Iron Citadel.

-Prophecy of the Five, Rwookrrorro, Sword of Ajunta Pall, and Terentatek players should move to Saber of Exar Kun.

And finally,
-The Twin Spears, Thendys Noori , Veela, Vulkar Highway players should all move to The Deadweight.

It is up to you now. I hope the other servers will follow suit. For those of you on servers that I requested to move, lets really take this game into the players hands and show the rest of the gaming community how we REALLY can make the difference. I thank you for your sacrifice to make this the game that WE WANT.

Good luck, and may the force be with you. (Sorry couldnít resist :-p)

***EDIT***

Look, it's already happening. http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=359784

I'm from Kinrath Spider and i'm up for this.
But i'd like to see some more commitment from the rest of the community before i rerroll in Iron Council.

You assume the majority of players read the forums. They do not. The majority of players are casual players who play a couple of hours a week around their regular life commitments. They wouldn't participate in the forums under the best of circumstances, and they certainly would not bother with this particular forum, given the level of hatred and lack of civility. And should they read the forums, I'm fairly certain the majority of players have no idea what you are talking about.

Thank you sir, I forgot to mention this.

Not only are do I request that the players from the specified "to move" servers actually move, but plaese SPAM the crap out of which server you are to move to. This will help the poulation flow as not all players read the forums.

I can represent Infinity Gate numbers right now, and inform you that it's a decent POP server. peak hours have 100+ on Fleet (sith) and off hours are 50-70 fleet.


but I rerolled from Sword of Anjunta Pall (which I left a 50 BH on there and he's cold and lonely) and I'm NOT rerollin. I'll wait for server move if I need to move. I have 6 toons currently and 3 of them are 50.

I'd rather play GTN with myself then reroll on a new server at this time.

BW is God.
This. If you didn't roll on Fatman its YOUR fault.

Most of the people who would re-roll have already done so.

Fatman for East Coasters.
Harbringer for West Coasters.
Freedon Nadd for Euro's.
Dalborra for Asia/Pacific.

They just need to start merging servers and opening Free Xfers.
And then closing dead servers. They just started this game with too many servers, they should have more slots per server and not so many realms.
