Just because it's not on a local server doesn't mean I'm not, and doesn't mean I haven't been adversely effected by this.
Well seeing your previous posts, you have no interest in the future of the APAC Servers.

So you have not plans to stay on the APAC Servers.

And your opinion on those that chose to re-roll in a different region like yourself.

AGAIN, THIS THREAD & IT'S CURRENT FOCUS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU!
It is about helping to solve the low population levels on all three APAC Servers.

Your are only looking for selfish benefits THAT WILL COME LATER THIS YEAR!
Open Transfers, BW have stated that they will come.

Thanks for supporting the APAC Server Merge

BioWare:
Please make the New APAC Super Server a Destination Server & All Other Servers Origin Servers.

Allowing any & all that wish to transfer to the APAC Server the opportunity to do so. Like that which was given to the NA/EU players before there Consolidation.

Well played sir! Well played!

Opinions being what they are.... You are correct in singling this individual out for looking out for their own gain and not the APAC community as a whole.

I never said NOT to give PvP players free transfers, maybe you should try and be constructive and add some positive feedback to my post, which has been a relatively well rounded and agreed upon opinion, rather than trying to shoot it down and bring nothing to the table.

To put some context to the situation:

-Merge all 3 APAC servers into 1 APAC "PVE" super server.
-Offer free transfers to those APAC players who left and started fresh on US/EU servers but only allowing them to transfer to the new APAC super server.
-Offer free transfers for any character (yes, specifically character) that was on the Gav Daragon (APAC RP-PVE server) to a selected mid population US RP-PVE server.
-Finally allow anyone who's not happy with this to pay for a transfer when that service is available.

That may seem a lot of work, but you are asking us for the best solution and I truly believe that's it.
Add PvPers to the optional transfer to a mid population US/EU PvP server.
While this may seem a very extensive solution I do feel it is a solve for the problem almost as an entirety.

Feel free to give me some constructive feedback as to whether or not you guys want this as your solution, rather than bicker amongst ourselves BW/EA is relying on us to all agree upon a solution as adults and move forward together!

Not trying to rush you guys (BW) but any idea when we might get a response about whats gonna happen, or how long your gonna let the reponses go on?

Just the waiting is annoying and a timeframe is so much better to have then nothing, even if its a couple of months long.

it is important to get a response quickly now though, there has been lots of information passed your way BW, its time to start passing it back.

You can see what the community wants, please tell us what you are thinking and when we can expect any action, or non action, if you so choose.

We can only hope we get this soon, Joveth's post has restored some of my faith in an outcome but if they delay it, it's only going to get worse.

I posted earlier how I played on MDN and the ping was amazing, there were large lag spikes but this is the first time I have experienced this.

I just want this issue sorted, it's been soooooooooo long since I created this thread!

1. Merge everyone to Dalborra.
2. When PVP players start on the server, have them accept a waiver that they will be permanently flagged pvp. If they dont accept, they become regular PVE players.
3. Server transfers free TO Dalborra from US.
4. Paid server transfer TO the US for anyone who doesnt like it.

The reason for 4, is their PVP community will still exist. With more people available for warzones.
Added to #2, extend the PVP cooldown for it to turn off by another 5min (obviously for the PVE players, making it a tad more interesting if they choose to flag and attempt a gank). And for gods sake, add a counter so people can see how long til it wears off.

Now that we’re at a more stable point in time (post Free-to-Play transition and post holidays), we wanted to re-examine this issue. We’re going to be completely honest with you: there doesn’t seem to be an easy solution for anyone. We’ve seen many ideas from you folks such as merging all three servers into one, allowing for transfers to North America servers, and even not doing anything at all, but none of them seem to be an ideal solution for all. This is why we are now opening up this dialogue with you.

In this thread, please let us know what you think the best solution will be for your servers. I know there have been many suggestions already, but I would like to collect the most current ideas for us to consider. After that, our team will review and discuss what is feasible and what makes the most sense to do. Please remember to follow all forum rules and be respectful of each other’s ideas, even if you disagree with it.

Thank you all, and we look forward to your ideas.

The only REAL solution i see is the merge of all 3 servers, the only reason i still pay for this game (apart from it being the only SW MMO now...) is because the low latency makes running content amazing.


Low latency makes all the difference for quite a lot of us, it wont be fun going back to having to have 180+ms in PvP, may as well play that other game if you want latency.

SWTOR really stepped up to embrace the Australasian market, provide us servers in a great location.


If we had willing players join from US west its a possibility for population.

One other option is to shard the servers into PvP and PvE instances so if you want to PvP you are in a PvP instance of the same planet and wont run into PvE players while running content that everyone can access. But when you want to join GF or find a WZ you just click the button and EVERYONE is available to run PUGS, this option means the PvPers can PvP without the PvEers complaining about being flagged or getting ganked etc but gives everyone a healthy population to run group content as after all, its mean to be an MMO and so far i havent seen MASSIVE
