8-hour maintenance for server consolidation but...

... nothing is being done to the Asia-Pacific servers, so why do they need that massive downtime for the entirety of prime time?

Honestly, if the AUS servers came back up before the NA and EU servers, and the NA and EU people "flooded" ours for the evening, it would be a BLESSING with our current server pops. Not to mention that I highly doubt those players will just casually decide to start an alt on a massive ping server during their downtime...

We're getting nothing out of this high-pop tech transition, so at least let us play while we're being ignored...

It is just going to fall on deaf ears. Bioware do not care about Oceanic players. They gave us servers to get more cash from sales, and thats it.

Because that is how the game is coded. Get over it.
Dear BW,
Please nerf paper and buff rock. Scissors is fine as is.

they gave you servers because people from there cried, screamed, begged and threw tantrums asking for and demanding them

Teamwork is essential; it gives the enemy other people to shoot at.

This bothers me also, our server population is already the lowest world wide which is bad enough, but the major down times 2-3 times a week during prime time aren't exactly helping. Please do something BW :x

I think it was more the case that people complained because the game was not being launched until approximately 3 months after the rest of the world. It was only later we found out it was because they were opening servers in the Oceanic region.

You're getting your servers upgraded to high-pop tech servers in preparation for F2P. That's what the downtime is for.

Yay. Our server is going to go from 70 people on the fleet to 80.

Awesome.
