We care about the bigger issues as much as they have shown to care about us

Just saying, don't get your hopes up anymore is all - I think we've all been disappointed by the slow pace of progress and response time from the developers, and it's time to seriously figure out what to do with our wallets and time, rather than waste our efforts trying to elicit a favorable response from the devs - it's out of their hands as much as it is out of ours.

Just as an aside, I don't think the profitability of 3 servers for a small market within a single game within EA's entire portfolio would be considered material. I would question any investor who were to consider this information pertinent to whether they hold, buy or sell any EA securities.

Now back on topic for you all to keep yelling at each other.

If we're really honest I think the one super server would have been profitable for EAware, however its just not profitable enough for them to justify spending more resources doing the mergers - which is the real kicker.

You'd also think they would be willing to think more about benefits to the company other than monetary ones - especially considering their latest awards.

Yeah we just don't know exactly how much these APAC servers cost. We do know that EA saved millions of dollars in a 3-month period after their massive server merges last year. It could be part of a company wide cust-cotting effort and could also be related to the CEO resigning last month. Whatever the case, if costs are the true reason, EA would never admit that to us.
