In order of my preferences

1. Cross server queuing for warzones and FPs
2. Do nothing - there has been an increase in pop since F2P regardless of how some refuse to see it
3. Open transfers to US

This, is the best solution I can see. Merge into Dalborra or accept a transfer elsewhere.

The main thing I want to see is choice. I've already been on Dalborra, I don't want to return. We have a number of people in our guild who are of the same mind.

One massive PVE or PVE-RP server sound great. And this is coming from a PvP-enthusiast.

2 Things, one solution is not enough.

1. Merge all 3 servers - Make it PVE. Then offer free xfers (one off) to APAC players to go back
2. Offer 1 off xfers to servers of choice

In relation to point 2 - If you have pop concerns around US servers, maybe limit it so you can only xfer to high pop server if you have existing characters created prior to a date (I know the harbringer doesnt need more people, but if you have already rerolled there - why cant i bring over the existing chars to that new legacy).

The key reason why we are playing on any of the APAC servers is the ping and is why many of us transferred when they were offered. To go back to a US server is just not an option. The server type is far less important.

The solution has to be one Oceanic server how you achieve that with the least stress is the issue.

Fastest & simplest way probably is to offer free transfers to Dalborra now (sorry GV & MDN guys) with an option of those who really want to PVP or RP with a higher ping to transfer to a US server.

At the very least, merge the PVP & PVE servers. Make the ruleset PVE - open world PVP is virtually non-existant in this game, and anyone can just flag themself for PVP if they want.

As for the RP server, I'm unsure about its population. If its fine, leave it as is. If its not fine then merge all 3 servers together. Again, PVP can be flagged if wanted, and RP can be done in different chat channels too.

Thanks for the apology for ignoring us, trying to sweep this under the carpet by banning forum members who spoke out about this. Thanks for apologizing about the total lack of communication you're company has decided to take on this issue.


Wait, something just occurred to me. You didn't apologize for $#!?

Thanks for nothing.

Here's the dialogue you so eagerly want now:
Free Manual Transfers to any server we wish ASAP... like yesterday!!

I would love a server merge and as Mosus says, transfers a month later if they're still not happy with the population. It'll be great for me
