Didn't you ask this already? maybe you only read some posts and missed where this has been asked about 20 times... no one knows, they don't even have the tech yet, hopefully not for a long time.

I agree with that. I believe that they're not going to merge aussie servers because it's not financially viable. I get that. I just wish they were up front about that.

What most people, me included, seem to be annoyed about is the way they are trying to spin it. If they had just said 'we're closing it down, not making any profit from it, can't support the server costs any longer given the player base on all 3 servers' I think most people would react like this:

'well that sucks, but fair enough.'

Apart from these recent problems I can recall only 1 time when the servers crashed with out warning, the Harbinger crashes much more often.

Haven't got the tech yet = too lazy to do the transfers.

They could move us from America and Europe a year ago, and to different server types, but that ancient technology seems to be lost forever.

If I remember correctly this was done manually, they are working on an automatic transfer system. The copy system for the PTS was not working 100%. So they still have work to do.

For the record, MDN was not the nicest place that you are all seeming to remember with rose-tinted glasses. Some of us got along very well. Others were plain nasty. Lots of griefing and ganking and **** talking in game. Hence, the massive exodus of players from MDN since 1.2.

Just because you don't like it doesn't mean others don't. I would rather the hostile community than playing on high latency. But thats never been a problem for you has it, your latency is crap to both Aus and US. And the servers have been fine TYVM since you left. If anything its gotten better since ROTC. Actual new content after waiting 7 months.
Unsubbed! Voting against the APAC server closures - with my wallet.
