Seriously? 170-190 would easily tide me over until F2P brings in more people. More people will be more inclined to stay also when the note the larger communities. Empty servers don't bring in more players, so essentially you're just shooting yourself in the foot when you pretty much proclaim that our only saving grace is going back to US servers. We have a chance, WHY IN THE NAME OF **** AREN'T YOU TAKING THAT CHANCE!?

I won't be giving up my 25 ms latency. That's why I'm playing this game and not some other game. If they take it away then there's nothing keeping me here.

they haven't fallen on deaf ears. the devs just won't acknowledge that they are doing the game more harm then good for the APAC region.

from the state of the game update:

Quote:
We are very aware of the concerns with the population levels on the Oceanic servers. The problem is pretty complex, as the solutions we have either split the populations further (like allowing Oceanic players to move to North American servers), or would force players to go to server types (PvP or RP, etc…) that they do not want to be on. Our current plan is to wait for Free-to-Play to launch and see what the influx of new players does to the populations of these servers. We will give it a little time and if we do not see significant improvement, then we will move ahead with the solution that offers the best playing experience for the Oceanic community.

not really Joveth. The post says you will wait for F2p, give it a "little" time and then "decide" which solutions gives us the best gameplay experience.

Too many things up in the air for my liking. If a F2P player comes along, and sees the pop difference between us and say the bastion/harbinger it would make more sense for them to go there. If you transfer us to the US servers, then we have to give up the latency of APAC servers.

You guys do realize that between now and then you will have more people getting out of the game due to population issues.

I still tyhink a server merge to a PVE with a seperate chat channel for RP would be the best solution. Those who want to pvp can flag themselves, and it will be an APAC community where we do not have to hear constant moaning about taxes, which idiot should be heading a country we dont give a flying hoot about or how someone scored a fecking homerun in a 9 hour match

How will this help end game raiding players ?
