We should all mass unsub. That would get them to act on at least something.

I would fully support a merger of the APAC servers.

Instead of playing politics "yeah we're gonna look into this" to the public, and haven't done a single thing at all about it, they could just appease their customer base, who you know, pays the bills for the product, thus we ARE entitled to. This thread will turn around from "complaining" to what I'd be willing to bet a hefty amount on a massively pleased and grateful bunch of gamers rejoicing that their play times have been SIGNIFICANTLY improved.

Really unsure what is difficult to understand about this concept, tbh. If somebody can logically explain to me why the MANY people who have posted in this thread are 100 percent wrong about the idea of a server merge is wrong, I'll gladly eat my words.

I really have been sitting here for the past 10 minutes trying to think of cons to this idea, and the only REAL con is that RP'ers may take a bit of troll in /1, but I can nearly bet you the good majority of folks on Gav support this, and you know what really phases me?

Apparently only 5 percent average of gamers browse and post in their perspective games forum. I could imagine a whole lot more unhappy folks in oceanic than what we're just seeing in this thread, oh and the many many others that have been posted dating back months now.

Already done. Will probably resub if they do something about this.

it's so simple

Merge servers now, later split again, split by instance, whatever.
Fix problem losing subscribers NOW, do EVERYTHING else later.

If everyone unsubbed, why would BW do anything? Everyone would be gone, heck, if anything, they'd see it as a waste of money and just rid themselves of the Oceanic servers altogether as no one is playing on them because they all left. xD

And guess what, they successfully avoided the issue for yet another week. I'm certain there isn't going to be any word on this in the next 24 hours, and then they go off on their weekend, and we don't have a chance of hearing anything until next Tuesday. And then it goes on all over again...

/facepalm

Pretty much everyone I know that has unsubbed (myself included) has stated that we would renew once our server Population issue is fixed. And guess how it is fixed? Merging all three servers together.

Because I still have friends and guild members playing, complaining on Mumble about the 25 people on fleet at 9pm.

In other news Bioware has announced that they will be merging all 3 of their Asia Pacific servers into one to provide a better playing experience for their customers across the Pacific. While a mega server isn't required for this unified server they are considering upgrading before their planned F2P launch.

Was that so hard?
