Look, if people go to the server, that means there'll be people there, right? Instead, people just want to go to the US server instead of sticking together as a community. No wonder APAC is falling apart, majority are just whiners who won't do anything to fix the problem and would rather bail. Pathetic.

And how do you propose we fix the problem? Re roll to Dalborra? Not happening. I have 8 50's, legacy 50, SO SO many things unlocked. There is no way in hell I would re roll to a server nearly as dead as my own.

The best thing we can do right now, and it is disgusting, is to get as many people as possible to avoid the APAC servers like it is the black death, so that when Bioware does it's re-evaluation of the servers, and sees that F2P hasn't helped, they will merge the servers, and then everyone can get their transfers.

they would close the servers if that were to happen. Best bet is to try and get all APAC f2pers to go on one server, forcing them to merge to that one server and closing the other two (with a choice of transfers to NA/EU servers for those who want to)

This. Bioware has to pay for those servers, if you force people to not play on those servers, then Bioware will simply see it as a way to ease their payload, closing the servers for good and forcing everyone in APAC to play on US servers.

You honestly think that?

There is still at least 70 per faction online on MDN of a night. With obviously Dalborra and Gav being higher, do you really think they would just shut down ALL three of the APAC servers, and ship those 400+ people back to US, when a single server would be a much better solution.

Would you prefer a ~200+ ping, but a guarantee to ALWAYS be able to PvP (or other content), or would you prefer <50 ping, with possible 30+ minute wait times to PVP (or other content)?

Thats really what new APAC players need to ask themselves.
Your missing the point, more ppl = shorter queues. So everyone should recommend new ppl to use the APAC servers. It's use them or lose them basically!

it would be, but with the way the way you want the f2pers to go will make Bioware choose the easier solution (closing APAC servers altogether). Even if we can get around 200 per faction on one server with what he have now, they would see it as too much of a risk to keep them open.

I am not a doomsdayer. I was using logic, which doesn't get used enough, to come up with a more viable way and think like company exec's do.
