Quesh is a tiny hiccup of a planet anyway.

TBH, Jung Ma is lacking compared to what it was mid summer. I can atest that my guild (the one that I am in) on that server is languishing.

Yeah I think so, some of the zones that have 200 caps currently, aren't really functional as zones quest-wise with even 100 people in them.

Performance-wise they are ok with up to 200 in, but if all your doing is waiting around with decent perfomance it's a bit silly.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

Its' really the irony of the STWOR instance process.

Populated zones do mean more potential for player interaction, group-finding, etc which is good empty zones get rather stale. But they also make just running around for quest objectives rather tedious either because you're waiting for quest-objectives to respawn, or because they have no cooldown and you have like 5 copies of the same mob running around.

To me the most sensible answer would just be to create many more instances when needed, and leave the chat channels global. There's already a system in place for joining custom channels across world, so I can't imagine making a global world chat would be very hard.

In an ideal world this would probably also be accompanied with a method for automatically joining whatever instance your group leader is in if you get invited to a party from chat.

But in general more instances, and cross-instance (or even server-wide) type LFG, Trade, General, chats would do wonders for SWTOR.
