What the hell you trying to play at Bioware. Not only are we getting screwed on server populations we didn't even get the extra character slots. You have got to be kidding me.

Why did you even bring our servers down?

Wow I can't believe this... Actually I can!

Surely they have some master plan for our APAC servers... Why on earth don't they tell us! No wonder people are rerolling off our servers or just quitting.

Just saw this. I'm voting with my wallet. Nice job Bioware. I'll wait and see if you bother fixing this..

"But we play at entirely different times."

That's beyond funny. Not only did they forget to update the oceanic servers, but they also brought the servers down for no reason. At the rate BW is losing rep and subscriptions by the time f2p hits there will be well below the 500k subscriptions and in the red. They are shooting themselves in the foot and f2p hasn't even hit live.

Hi folks! Thanks for raising awareness for this! Rest assured that Oceanic servers will be getting 12 character slots as well. Apologies for the confusion and the wait as we work on making this adjustment. Thank you for your patience!

Any news on consolidating our servers while you are here? Our populations are pathetic across three servers, but would be a semi-decent One server population

Trouble is that our servers are not based on one locations e.g Australia, the servers are made up of the Asia Pacific region from Japan to Tasmania all with different time zones which mean that there is not "peak time" and so when life's demands interfere with game time server population falls.

Personally, i don't see how a server merge in our region is going to increase our pop by much, maybe (fingers crossed) that F2P will bring in the crowds

I am online from 4pm through to about 1am. I generally see every time that would be considered "peak" time.

Yes, a server merge is needed. We can not wait till F2P for the extra 15 or 20 players it will bring.
