There comes a point where the livelihood of a game outweighs the necessity of strict RP rules within 1 sub-community of the game. For example If merging into a PvE server meant I couldn't go and gank lvl 30s on my lvl 50 so be it. I really don't mind all that much losing a small part of the game for a much larger population and/or quality of game play improvement, and I expect others to feel the same. If they don't they are being extremely self-centered and selfish.
Well that post was a joke to start with

As for the rest, well ultimately it's really mostly about wanting to play with mature people who have manners rather than a bunch of pre-pubescent teenagers who think it's cool to name their characters after certain body parts and can't partake in group activities without upsetting everyone. This just tends to happen less on RP servers... although lately who could tell.

It's about enjoying the game and it's environment, sadly there are few things you can do to stop random morons running circles naked whilst you're trying to roleplay a romantic storyline except be choosey who you play with.

Merge to one for me.
And rated's ?



I understand that most players on Dalborra want more people to PvE with, but simply disregarding the wants and desires of PvPers and RPers is exactly what you guys are claiming your not; selfish.

That's why it is only fair for the ENTIRE Oceanic community, that we are allowed to choose where we want to play all of our characters.

For me, I want to move the four 50's I have off Master Dar'Narla and onto the US PVP server where I currently enjoy playing, belonging to a guild, and interacting with a PvP community.

Well then you can wait I guess with the rest of the entire SWTOR for paid transfers then... Because if you get to choose where you get to go (the US and EUROPE players didn't remember) then expect a MASSIVE backlash from the rest of the SWTOR community. And there's a lot more of them than us.

Our argument was always about being treated equally with the US/EU not to get special treatment like you are calling for now.

Not saying your desire isn't a fair request eventually, but allowing us transfers anywhere we so wish will have 200,000 US/EU players asking EA/Bioware "***????". The forums would be absolute carnage. Let's make it easy for Bioware not hard.

Was it fair and equal treatment when the great server merge happened for the US/EU and not for the APAC servers?

please.

They've had more than enough time to come up with an easy solution.

I dont think server X-fers to US servers is much of a solution just another drain on our already depleted oceanic servers plus who wants to play PVP or PVE with 1 trillion ping its poo. Like many others i agree that a server merge would be best keep our players here and bump the population up so the games worth playing again. Hey you never know they may even provide us customer service without having to call and actually respond to a ticket for once if we have a real game base lol (dreaming) Bring on the server merge i say cant wait till 2043 when it happens.....

On a final note why not actually advertise the game here and encourage more people to join and play SWTOR its amazing how many gamers actually have stuff all idea about it and what its about...

... because we were "discriminated". Think of it as compensation.

They have mentioned server transfers are in the works so transfer off then. Why cause an argument on here when something finally might be happening.

whatever you think, you need to change your attitude. There was absolutely no discrimination on Bioware's part against anyone outside of US/EU. They are running a business not the ***.

How am I creating an argument when all I'm doing is voicing my own opinion.

Is my opinion suddenly not worth anything when compared to those that ONLY want a server merge? How is my opinion unwarranted or invalid?

Put it this way. I came to the Oceanic servers when they finally launched their lol global oceanic launch in good faith that it was where I was going to stay.

I waited a long time after the population dropped off on every server.

I still waited after watching the US/EU server merge, whilst the Oceanic servers suffered.

When we got nothing in the way of communication from EAware, I decided to take matters into my own hands as clearly EAware didn't care, so I re-rolled on a US PVP server. I am happy there.

So what.... they'll merge the servers and wont introduce paid server transfers for another 10 months.

So I can continue to get insulted by imperfect solutions, until then?

People were crying out for Paid Character Server transfers 12 months ago.. and were still a year away???

That's not a fix for me. We know they have the ability to implement manual character transfers.


MY OPINION, is that they use that ability here for those that require it. And the rest of you who think I should have to wait to play my other toon's can have your merge and watch as the oceanic pvp population peaks and falls in its first month. Mind you, most of the people ONLY asking for a merge are PvE'ers.
