That **** isn't going to fly, the best solution would be merging other servers with the same timezone as APAC and ping in the US. I was pretty pissed when I saw APAC servers just being alone, for the obvious reasons that they didn't want to alienate the US customers. No matter what in MMO's oceanic realms will always be third world citizens.

Its sorta stupid that they didn't even implement cross realms instead for the APAC servers.

I don't have much confidence either that F2play will be the solution for the APAC community either, it may gives us a boost but their advertising campaign in australia is 0. At most we might get an influx of prodigal players who will then be on intermittently because the server population problem and queuing is the same issue it is when they left.

So, have not logged on as I have been at work all day. How are our populations? For all 3 servers.

I've been on the PvE and PvP servers today and yesterday.

Just to really highlight how bad it is on the PvP server, the fleet population yesterday was 2 people. Me and 1 other person - this is at like 8.00 am, sure, not the busiest time of the day, but you'd still expect SOME people around. It's actually even worse then when I last bothered to login and check out that server, which was like 2 months ago.

Today, sure, was more people, like 30. However, this still is a population you can't do anything with. Queued for hours to get like an entire 2 warzones.

Simply.
Not.
Worth.
Bothering.

At this stage, if there isn't a server merge damn fast you can just turn off the power and unplug these servers cause there will be nothing to merge.

EDIT: To make matters worse, bioware deleted the toons I moved from the swiftsure, even though they said they wouldn't, and now refuses to allow me to move my characters. Yeah thanks, I'm now marooned on a dead server with no recourse. **** you very much.

At 8am I doubt any of the new F2Pers would have hit level 10 to even get onto the fleet :P

I'm pretty happy to wait a couple of days to see how it goes

How are the Korriban numbers? Dromund Kaas? Coruscant?

First day of FTP and servers are going down at 7pm AEDT.... Isn't that just the best way to entice (and retain) APAC players to join?

Servers didn't come back up this morning until after I'd started work and they're going down again before I get home. /endrant

Yeah I'm in the same boat. Pretty upsetting cause my guild wanted to hit up EC NM straight away

Steevoo

As at 1:35pm on MDN

Number are for Imperial Only

Fleet: 35
50s: 86
WZs running: 1
Korriban: 12
Hutta: 11
DK: 11

Meanwhile:

The Harbinger is FULL
The Bastion is at Medium Capacity

Maintenance during our peak is only going to have a negative impact.

Will probably see more numbers over the weekend however this will gradually decline.

Forecast: Not looking good!

What I hate is they don't even bother to tell us what this "emergency" patch is going to be for. I can understand if it is because of an exploit, but as far as I can remember we have had one emergency patch that fit that description, the rest of all been some minor crap, or something majorly buggy that they could have told us about before the down time.

Free to play players can't create more than 1 character, and the item preview screen is bugged.

I doubt it'll take them the full 2 hours to fix it
