Hi folks,

Unfortunately, I have no new information at this time. In my last post, I did say that I would update this thread when I had new information but I currently do not.

With that being said, I will make sure to update this thread as soon as I have more information.

As a reminder, please remember to follow forum guidelines within this thread.

Thank you.

No one is surprised by this response....seems to be the stock standard answer to almost everything asked by us forum goers on any subject.

Why not just say your waiting to see how free to play affects server populations...I take it this is the real reason for the lack of any information. The higher ups at EA stating they expect F2P could bring in 10 to 50 million subs (LOL) so stuff the existing population over for all the potential new blood you may get. (Sony did this exact thing in Star Wars Galaxies with the NGE...doing over their existing player base for the potential new players they thought the changes would bring)

Thanks for the update, but can you at least tell us if this is getting any priority as a fix? It has been several weeks since the server merges, and in reality a solution should have been established at the same time the European and US servers had their merges.

To simply forget about a whole region of paying customers is pathetic. The longer this situation progresses, the more the population bleeds, more people unsubscribe, and more bad rep is directed at this game. Bioware / EA really needs to pull there finger out if they think F2P will bring people to this game, because up until now, there is a steady decline in customers satisfaction with how the game is being managed.

Maybe the priority should be making the customers happy, rather than focusing on keeping EA board members satisfied.

Just wanna echo this sentiment. Every day that goes by, more and more people are just stopping logging in and starting to unsub. No reason to log in, no one is around to play with. Pvp queues getting longer, and now can only pvp during a limited few hours of the day before it's done. F2P isn't going to bring these people back, and given that it's already been stated that F2P players will have limited access to things like WZs per week, it still limits the amount of people paying subscribers have to do things with.

People would log in and support this game more if they knew there was going to be a decent population of people to play with that day, and if the oceanic community didn't constantly feel forgotten about by BW/EA. Oceanic players already tolerate far more than any other region with the weekly maintenences always in our primetime, and extended patches eliminating an entire day of playtime fairly often. We are repaid for our loyalty by being continually snubbed for equal services that the other regions get. While they have gotten merged (NA servers got merged TWICE!) to make sure they have enough population, we aren't even told if we will ever be provided with such a service.

It's exhausting to constantly get forgotten about. It doesn't even seem to me like BW/EA cares at all whether or not we stay subbed, and that's a shame. Just because we have a smaller population doesn't mean we are worthless as customers. Stop putting this off, stop having a "wait and see" attitude while more and more people leave the game. We've waited far longer than the other regions, and we deserve to have this be a priority issue.

Aaaaand that is me done for good. My unsub was a temporary one in the hopes that you would wake up and acknowledge that there is a problem with APAC servers. However, your inability to realise that populations were dropping extremely fast (down to 40 people on fleet when I last logged in 11 days ago) will mean that my unsub is permanent.

This is really such a shame. This game in its moments is fantastic, and there is such a simple fix to this issue, yet you continue to ignore our plea's.

Yeah, its almost as if they want us to feel annoyed and ignored and eventually force us to unsub, so they can state that there were not enough people to support APAC servers and therefore the need to close them down, and help save some $$. Who the hell knows how EA thinks. They've already mentioned they consider this game as 'not successful'. Maybe they really want us out, to cut costs.

THAT

waiting to see what will happen with F2P I guess... so one more month or so to wait... Thanks a lot, do we get a month for free since right now we pretty much pay for nothing?

A broken game (thanks 1.4) and no players to play with... (remember what the MM means in MMORPG??)
