Good advice. OK, here goes.

I don't think Server Merges should happen because of the reasons I've already stated and no-one is allowed to say anything if they disagree with this point of view, so I must win the argument.

If I knew it was going to be that easy, I'd have said that long ago.

People on t3 m4 are tired of fighting the same people on warzones... every fight - same faces. Same with ops. Same on french servers. Yes we need either cross-server queues or server merge.

Nobody is stopping you from playing on a different server. You have the option of moving. If the servers are merged, we won't have the option of moving back.

While you might get tired of the same ones on pvp it is vastly different regarding OPS. Some people actually prefer have the same group for OPS as they will know what the person can do and what they are capable and for OPS that is something most groups prefer. Most groups do not prefer having different people for OPS as they have no idea of what they are going to do or what they are capable of. Having the same group for operations and flashpoints is usually something a lot of people prefer.

This thread is just the same few people replying to every post.
Nearly 50 pages of the same few vultures repeating themselves.
How is that constructive or productive?

Because everyone knows that nothing will happen soon as stated by the interview by Bad Feeling and whatever will happen BW will make the sole decision. Thus the rest are here to troll or to win forum PvP.

I wouldn't phrase it quite like that...those who want group stuff to pop faster...that's 'self-interest' too. They want what they want at the expense of what others have, so that's being selfish and self-interested too. It's not like the groupers are altruistic, far from it. They expect other people to sacrifice for them.

There's no need for passive-aggressive attacks. Each side is going to regard the other as selfish, because of what they want. Ultimately it's up to Bioware to solve an issue they didn't seem to have the foresight or ability to address when they were implementing guild properties/bank slots/colour & outfit slots, names, and guild ships and decor.

There's really no point in feeding the engine here to go round and round and cause more bad feelings between parties; apparently all that needs to be taken away from this was said on that podcast or whatever it was.

It doesn't really matter, because its very clear right now Bioware is at a stage where they don't have the capacity to do such a merge. And it is also very clear bioware will not force server merges until they can.

Yes, they did it before, but that was before Strongholds and Outfit slots. The only issue at the time was names and legacy's, and the legacy thing was such a problem that they fixed it. Plus, right now, RPers are the bulk of who still plays this game- for all their decos to be reset, and their outfits scuttled? People would unsub so fast.

If you're complaining about queue times and the sort, go to a different server. Then, the responsibility is on you. Bioware has made it very clear they do not want to be responsible for server transfers because they know the capacity for everything to be seamless is not there yet. In a year, maybe this will be a different discussion.

Also, you have the fact that there are tons of characters holding names on servers that have never even cleared Tython/Mantell/Korriban/Hutta. that's also gonna be a problem, even with a name purge. However, it seems as they will make new servers, in order for no one to still "hold" names for inactive toons which I commend them on deciding. Managing servers isn't easy, but I'm glad they put the interests of the customer over convenience.
