- Results from APAC/USA Server Comparison -

Hi guys,

Just to quickly recap, on Saturday 2nd November I played for 18 hours (2pm-11pm local time) with 9 hours dedicated to Master Dar'Nala and The Bastion respectively. Identical characters, playing only Warzones.

At the head of each hour I took notes on populations on each planet from the Republic Faction, as well as the number of LVL50's logged in. Here is a link to the spreadsheet with those results, including % differences from the highest total.

Here are the Warzone Statistics...

In 9 hours of playing Warzones
Master Dar'Nala: Reached LVL 12, played 17 Warzones
The Bastion: Reached LVL 14, played 32 Warzones

On Master Dar'Nala that meant a pop of 1.8 games per hour. We could not even manage to get 2 warzones an hour.
On The Bastion that meant a pop of 3.5 games per hour.

If your average Warzone lasts 15 minutes, that means that each hour:
Master Dar'Nala: 33 minutes spent waiting in the Que each hour
The Bastion: 7.5 minutes spent waiting in the Que each hour

Over half of each hour spent waiting for a pop.

Thanks for all the support guys. These numbers are terrible, we all know how hard it is to play on the APAC servers, this just proves it.

Link to it - use the stats as you will and let's try and get BioWare to do something about this. My hope is for a server merge. The community on APAC has a real sense of character, fun and friendliness and, obviously, there is significant server lag if you want to play on a US server. It makes it that much more difficult.

Cheers all!

Pleasure! First 9 hours was great fun! I was wrecked by the time I turned over to The Bastion, but we got through it!

Thanks for your amazing dedication, providing solid data to support the cause for a solution to the APAC population issue is very much appreciated.
I just hope that we get the server mergers to single APAC super server very soon.

It's simple Sil... merge to one server APAC survives and perhaps with f2p even flourishes...allow transfers outside APAC and it dies.
The only people who should be allowed actual transfers should be RPs... IMHO... pvp and pve can live side by side... i'm happy to flag myself and get killed by anyone who wants a shot

So Bioware, what makes this guy to special to get a transfer that the rest of us have been asking for?
All my friends left this game telling me its a sinking ship, i stayed on, telling them they were wrong.... till recently when u ignore ur customers and a whole region, guess im the one who was dumb.

have toons on the pvp server....was prime time tonight with 20 ppl on the fleet rofl...When paid transfers are up im definetly moving back to the US servers. the APAC region doesnt have the population to keep the servers alive :/. Wish I never moved to the APAC servers because half my toons werent able to be transferred anyway.

Already stated to a few guildies/friend i've had enough of this crap, and have planned to pull the plug on this game if something major doesn't happen b4 Xmas, just waiting to hit my 12mth mark and im gone without any plans to return.

Im done with MMOs the only game to hold my attention died last year Rip SWG, stuff SWGEmu as i only ever played during the NGE. I played WoW for 2 months prior to this game and it bored me to tears, but was a diversion.

So BW/EA thanks for killing this game with your LACK OF COMMUNICATION and CRAP CUSTOMER SERVICE!!
