I'm fine with doing a little bit of work if it means being able to actually play the game. I'm still in favor of three servers: 1 East (mega), 1 West (mega), & 1 RP.

Anything Bioware can to do make this process less painful would be even better.......

PS: To the "you should just transfer crowd". We loose all guild assets, likely loose guild members, loose all command tokens, & we would have to transfer to Harbinger. At current, there is no realistic East Cost option given that both Shadowlands & Jedi Covenant are in decline. Both need to be merged with the lesser East coast servers. I shouldn't be forced to play with poor latency because EA/Bioware won't provide proper server/population maintenance.
While I understand your position, is is really a good idea just to merge without them making sure things will merge correctly or they will stand to lose more people and that will not help the que's either. Just jumping into merging without fixing the problems they had from the last one and actually figuring out how to transfer guilds , guild assets all in tact would be something I would think it would be best to do first. While I am not on either of those, (Ebon Hawk for me) they need to figure a way to not have guilds or personal assets have to be redone again. this could cause more people to leave therefore not helping que's anyways.

Um... you know Ebon Hawk still exists, right? And that it's the #1 East Coast server in population and the #2 server in population for NA overall? Just wondering...

Isn't that the RP server? Yes we are aware of it, but does it even come close to the population size of Harb?

Not just that, but people do need to realize if anything, that we would need our RP servers merged together, and separate from any other Merged servers because Instances don't apply to RP on a World level, and people don't understand them and they get attacked, because they are being mis-understood.

Our Original Names CM stuff and Achievements that we Unlocked need to be saved along with Guild things.

Always Good and Bad with Mergers. If Bioware can do these things without a Huge Hiccup, then that would be different. Also Pvp only Servers to to think about to.

About 2/3rds the size or maybe just under that

Yep. I love Ebon Hawk. I play solo and don't PvP, and that server works for me very well. I wouldn't want to be elsewhere.

What difference does that really make? Ebon Hawk has a nice population and nice community. I do not understand the need for it to be compared to Harbinger.

Again, please address server stability issues before we consider merging. Four times down in 30 days isn't good even for a fly-by-night Chinese web browser game.
