Don't get me wrong we do have some pop but is it enough? I feel it's not. Havent seen fleet go above 70 people in the last week and thats during our peak time (8pm AEST)

Now asto merges..... I don't see how it could work.
When i play as an Imperial there is always loads of people playing on fleet or some of the planets, the only thing that i have noticed is that not many people play as Republic as most seem to favor the Imperial side

Why do you care about our servers? Go back to your US server and leave us alone!
"We're merging you with US servers. Your gameplay experience will be abysmal, but you'll have higher populations!"
"But we play at entirely different times."
"Doesn't matter. Our metrics will show higher populations."

Oh Hai Bioware!

What a joke of a post. Actually, all of your posts in this thread must surely be jokes...is this your stand-up routine? A joke.

I've been playing this game since launch and on Master D since it opened. I have two eyes and know how to use them. According to my eyes, here are the facts:

-Today it is hard to get over 100 people on imperial fleet even in prime time
-Over the past few months, that number has been steadily decreasing. At start of the Oceanic servers we had multiple instances of fleet, with 400+ players on fleet
-At 1.2 that number we had a temporary spike with 200-300 people on fleet
-At 1.3, well there was a spike for maybe 2 days, until people realized what a fail RWZs were
-For the past 3 months, we have rarely gone over 200+ on fleet
-For the past month, we struggle to break 150 on fleet
-For the past two weeks, we struggle to break 100 on fleet

See the trend?

Most of the guilds that were here at opening of Master D are no longer here. Their players long gone.

Making "new" friends every 2 weeks is tiresome. You need some stability to keep people motivated to build relationships - what's the point leveling/gearing with someone if the guy you liked grouping with is going to be gone in a few weeks?

I have been in exactly 5 guilds on this server. 1 guild had over 100 members and another had over 300 members at one point. Only 1 has not yet "/gdisband".

But to you, the servers are "loaded" and fine. What a joke. Maybe if you don't like competitive playing, then yeah I'm sure this server is working out great for you. But a LOT of us like competition (whether it be excelling at PvP or PvE). WIth small numbers, being the best means nothing.

We need mergers, or at least allow us to transfer. You must be blind not to see this.

All with healthy populations thus far..........
I disagree. The pop's aren't healthy when it can take 4+ hours to get a team with the LFG and the same for popping in level 50 warzones.

I've been on Master D since the beginning as well, 50's in both factions, I'm 100 percent addicted to this game and play nightly.

I've seen the massive fleets that used to be Master D pre Diablo 3, and I've seen the numbers dwindle down extremely.

Last night, I spent the majority in PVP queue, and maybe played 4 matches? Pops every 20 mins or so, even with a couple of matches ending early, this was in prime time.

I've seen and posted in multiple threads about APAC SWTOR, and there has to be a merge at least with the PVP/PVE server.

Nearly every single person in Master D would give the lowbie pvp beating up for a healthy queue and constant LFG's etc.

The RP folks it would be 100 percent up to them if they want to merge or not, but a transfer to US-EU server would be absolutely horrendous. Some of the top PVP'ers in Master D have noted they won't move out due to a handsome ping that no other MMO offers and it's 100 percent true, I wouldn't go back to a US server.

I'm a bit of a gambling man and I'm willing to throw a bet on the fact that Bioware are waiting for f2p before merging, this would be a really bad move, cause I'm telling you now, numbers are going to get thinner and thinner before most folks would even realise.

Bioware need to act on this asap.

I don't when was the "last time" you log in and which server for your 2xx ppl.

I play in Dalborra server (the most populated one amoung Asia servers), I log and play almost everyday, I mostly log in prime time and weekend, but sometimes week day morning before go to office, if I wake up early. For weeks, the server status is always light to medium, never heavy. On the passed Saturday and Sunday, during prime time, we hardly have over 90 ppl at the fleet, mostly 60ish to 80ish, 10mins to 15mins wait between WZs queue.

Fanboi will say its becoz of school kids back to school, or when ppl get disappointed with GW2, they come back. Useless excuses.... so I have to wait until next summer for the server being populated again? And even some ppl will disappointed with GW2, do you think SWTOR is the only place they can return? Mostly when ppl leave, they just leave.

I am not a SWToR hater, I like this game so I open my wallet and pay for it. But lets face the fact, we need some serious fix here in SWTOR, or more ppl with leave, 'coz we like this game, but we don't fall in love with this game.

Free unlimited transfer like RIFT.
Cross-servers War-zone/Flashpoint like all another 647,342 MMOs which ALREADY have.
Merge more dying servers, most planets are empty to play.
Multi talent spec., so ppl don't have to reroll & reroll & reroll with the boring PvE content or stuck with only one playing style.
Give us real space combat, not Star-Fox 2012. (ppl is still playing space missions??)

SWTOR has been way too slow in bug fix and improvement. Don't tell me again how long it takes WoW Vanilla to have this and that, for goodness sake that game was year 2004 and monopoly the MMO market with no serious competitors, what year is now and how many other MMOs out there?

It is not GW2 or WoW-Kungfu Panda killing SWTOR. Its Bioware itself.

I agree there needs to be action taken with the Asia Pacific servers but merging with US servers is not it.
I love my 25ms ping.
