Harbinger's not THAT bad
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

You mean moved to cheaper space XD. If it was consolidated under a modern server then less issues. But this is 2012 tech here at Swtor lol. And Harb is having better stability than this lol. Heck Pot5 crashing more than Harb and it's been dead since 2015 XD.

I kind of want them to merge the servers just so I can see the reaction of all the people XD.

Server merges might increase population for a few servers, yes. But think about how much trouble Harbinger has. Harbinger's the most populated server, period. Insane lag, a lot of crashes, the server hamsters faceplanting off their wheels.... a'right, I kid with that last one, but you get the idea. More people = more stuff for computers to render = more lag. All to get a few seconds shaved off of queue times? Hardly worth it.
Not to mention, there are some people who *like* their quieter servers. I'm one of them. I don't want to see the population of Ebon Hawk - generally nice and friendly - get mixed in with the population of Harbinger (...no explanation needed ). I like staying on Begeren Colony and Shadowlands where it doesn't feel like I'm choking when I visit the fleet.
Sounds like you haven't been to Harbinger in awhile. In the last several months it has fallen prey to 'Light' mode. It seems a lot of the people bashing Harbinger haven't actually been there in over a year which is fine but don't depict it as if it's 2015 and in 'Standard' full time with upsurges to 'Heavy'.

Harbinger is every bit "that bad" and it is actually far worse than "that bad".

It makes a difference because this entire game is in decline &/or dieing. I've been trapped on a dead server that I didn't pick for 2.5 years now, because that's about how long ago things started to go sour on POT5. They've ignored us ever since & not provided the server maintenance we pay them to. If the ship is sinking, I want to be on the TIP of the boat so I can PvP till the lights go out.

How long have you been playing pal? Most of those things didn't even exist during the ONLY round of server mergers in North America. The only things they had to worry about back then was guild banks & guilds, & even then they refunded us GMs with the necessary credits to rebuild. They could do the same thing with decos & matts.

What's stopping you from fixing your own problem and transferring to another server if you're unhappy. Transfers are virtually free.

You should do what others on PoT5 did... move to Harbinger on the 90cc transfers. You know... the only good server according to many who PvP.

I guess you could just double down and demand servers be merged, but there is no assurance that will solve your problem as they may merge you where you don't really want to be. Why play victim when you have the tools to control your own destiny in terms of play experience?

Prior merges were really hard on guilds. Many guilds waited months to get things fixed after a merge. And this was before guild ships and strongholds. Unless/until the studio puts in the work to move guilds and their assets intact.... merges would be a horrible thing to do and would actually probably hasten decline in active players ... particularly when people like you on a truly dead server can easily move to where you want to play.
When you find yourself surrounded by hostile Clowns... always go for the "Juggler" first.

I'm not reposting my original statement. If you're truly interested, back-track & read the rest of the thread. It's not my problem I can't fix, it's my guilds problem.

I don't know who those guilds were. I've been a GM since beta & we were made whole again the day after mergers. Customer Service got back to me very rapidly.
