Let's say that Gav has 100 player slots. That means that 100 people can be online at the same time. If there's only 40 people on, it will be Standard Population.
However, Dalborra has 1000 player slots. If there's 250 players on, it says it's Light Population.


So the status actually tells you what % of the server slots are occupied, not how many people are online.
The reason RP servers have less player slots, is because RP is nowhere near as popular as PvE and PvP, so EAware did not want to spend the same amount of money for something they did not need. Even as the current status is, you barely have any players on Gav, which means it was an accurate prediction.
So that's how it works? Interesting - thanks for the info. However, I have to agree with Ailie - the community may be small but it's good, and I'd rather keep it that way. Quality over quantity, and the numbers are more than adequate for me. It's a good server and I really hope BW do not merge it with the other APAC servers.

Sounds correct, but... has this actually been put up somewhere or...?

There have been quite a few players on when I have been playing recently. Admittedly not on hoth or the later levels but questing in the newby areas is quite busy.

Are you saying that the other APAC server is busier?

Yes, quite easily. Actually to be accurate, Dalborra is. Master D seems about the same as us if not worst off in regard to population.
