Any one else noticed that the servers were all full during peak times the other week and now all the full ones are now only heavy or very heavy. Lots are just standard now and you log on to them to see what the populations are like and you'll get like 20 people in a zone compared to around 80 in the very heavy ones.

Bioware needs to start merging servers before they make the mistake every other developer has done with mmorpgs ever since WoW. If you're part of an unpopulated server you're more likely to quit because you cannot find the people to play with.

It's not a doomsday thread but Bioware need to get on top of the population decline before the servers get too underpopulated and people quit.

Estimated and including Asia-Pacific region release.

Not very good news really. Game is dying a quick death in the US.

Actually, the first link says:

Quote:
"We continue to feel comfortable with our Star Wars estimates which are an important part of our street-high FY13 non-GAAP EPS estimate of $1.36. We estimate 2MM paying subs by the end of June 2012 (and then sustained for the remainder of the year). We also note that the company plans to launch Star Wars in the Asia-Pacific region later this month," Creutz said in a statement.
So, it's old news, pre-AP launch, just repackaged. It's the same 1.7M that's been given before.
You call that a rant?

Besides, a very large % of those aren't even logging in. I know I'm one of them. Gift card for Christmas.

The population is fine, Arbour Day is coming up and people are busy preparing the saplings.
