Guarantee you, that won't take 8 hours. The consolidation will be by far the lengthiest part of this procedure, just based on sheer data and logistics.

That is not happening in APAC. Those servers will be down and in stasis while the NA servers get polished up after the mergers, and most of you will be asleep.

We'll all be wide awake, hoping to play a bit after a day of work, and can't.

And for what? We'll log in tomorrow evening and find everything EXACTLY THE SAME. NA will have gotten better WZ queues, and AUS will just have lost prime game time and gained a greater ability to host nothing at all.

At least let the APAC servers come back up once you're done with them and are spending the true bulk of the time handling the consolidations that have no effect on them...

If we get an extra 4 slots, I don't mind the 8 hour downtime through of our prime time. But if there isnt, thanks for wasting our time bioware.

There might be client update too, that would mean everyone has to patch before playing.

Lol no, most of us did not, and most of us didn't even ask for them.

Also, you have ZERO SITUATIONAL AWARENESS. Those of us who did ask for APAC servers did so at a time when the game was THRIVING and Bioware was claiming we would get over 2 million subscribers and give us new content every month with all sorts of upgrades and optimizations coming soon! We were fed to believe that the APAC servers would thrive based on how awesome this game was going to be. When that reality quickly and rapidly changed over the last few months, what is their response? Silence.

So yeah, excuse us for wanting solutions to our problems which exist TODAY, instead of being held to decisions made months ago when the situation was much different than it is now.

And regarding your condescending tone, yeah, I hope you are stuck with every single decision that you've made in your life and are never given a chance to change course and adapt when the winds change.

8hrs? You are optimistic.

I bet there will be at least another 1 or 2 times of 4hrs+ server down for hot fixes.

Any US based MMO will always have server down schedule like this, have to live with it I guess.

Too bad we can't trolll this forum during server down. Why game down = forum down i can never understand.

The light side option: you have at least 8hrs to try GW2 or download the RIFT free trail to play with. Or even check out MoP kungfu panda warcrap...etc.

Ah crap, you're probably right. It's a fair enough reason... IF it happens! Though it's pretty likely...

Maybe I'll play LotRO during the downtime instead of seething...

Everyone get's the 4 extra chars, so that is always a nice thing.

Yeah.....and any Australian not happy is going to have something bad happen to them.....like their pet kangaroos reported for a nasty strain of fleas.


I have seen it happen before.....it is a most gruesome sight, so spare yourselves the agony.
