BW, Do you really expect those server will have a balance population (economically, general population-wise [for HEROIC/ Ilum/ OPs quests] & rep vs. Emp factions)?

I don't think it's wise to migrate... those countries have good, fast internet services, latency won't be an issue at all.

Players who have already begun their journey will also have a limited-time opportunity to migrate their characters from their current servers to Asia Pacific servers after the launch on March 1st, giving them the chance to take advantage of the decreased network latency by playing on a regional server. All players who qualify for a character transfer will be notified in early March with more details.

Now were really going to see if this game can compete with WoW.

A question though: where exactly are the servers going to be located? Actually in AU/NZ or SNG or JP? (before someone asks, yes, it makes a huge difference as many ISPs route traffic for ASPAC countries via their links to the US making the latency _worse_ not better when accessing servers in "their region")
Steven Reid stated on a TOROZ (Podcast 26) on the 11 of Febuary that servers would be located in australia. Though no details were given, he implied Sydney or Melbourne.
