500 is not a good server population.
yea 1000 a faction is standard (actually low) .....2000 would be average for a mmo 5 years ago....with phases...each server given 2.5 million should have min 20k a faction...but they have under 1k on majority of servers...

What we want here is total faction for each server, and fleet....if fleet is under 100 then theres a problem...if under 50 then it could be considered a dieing or dead server...

------------------

Those here at launch remember 250 person fleets, and most are down to 30-75 which is a huge drop and screams the need for a merger/transfer....

But unless we show the screenshots and keep track....EA will not grant this or admit there is a problem with servers. Sucks.

Lets get on the ball, Primetime starts in EST servers soon, so start watching those numbers.

I already have a survey in place, and the data feeds to a spreadsheet. This is where you can stow your numbers in a way people can look at them. I think people are not going to flip through a billionty screenshots.

Survey is here:

I got tired of people mouthing off about server pops. I prefer numbers.

weekends in the morning, can't even fill a full wz team when the Q pops. If you want a PVP East Coast server, join the fatman instead.

My server, the Progenitor EU, has always been flagged standard at prime time, and I'd very much consider it a healthy server.

THANK..... *YOU*.

Just because you can't move an inch without a slide-show doesn't mean that YOUR SERVER IS ****DYING****! CALL GERALDO RIVERA!

The game's population continues to rise, and yes - I know, heaven forbid, there aren't neccessarily 4k people on your server at 3:13am CST.

The game is healthy, it's growing, and we should all be happy that we're here to behold the first few months post-launch, even with the manageable bugs and un-resolved tweaks in the game.

All a matter of perspective.

For those with a phobia of social interaction, having a server to themselves is the ideal.

9 people at 6.30 pm on a sunday is not healthy, i dont see how you can even argue that.

Just cancelled my sub. Starting from scratch in another server isn't possible for me. 22 days left to play. It's a *********** shame , I do enjoy the game.. I just wish Bioware would adress the low pop issue. When/if this is resolved I'm renewing.

Good luck to all.

Canceled, I'll be back in 6 months to see how things are going then.

I came into this game with high expectations, and I have been somewhat disappointed. Really it's a compounding thing, the high system requirements, bad internet connectivity on my side, and lack of server population have all added to this. As well as the excess cut scenes, excess travel times, and mundane space battles. I must say I am probably most disappointed by space combat which I had high expectations for and the long que que times for PvP compounded with low server population.

The way bioware handled opening launch I must say was TERRIBLE. I started on a heavily populated server, upon full release my que times to get into the server went over an hour. As many know they slowly upped server populations, but as I find my money and play-time valueble I switched servers to a medium population. Little did I know that their population levels are based on ratios not actual number, IE: 200/200 cap= full population but 200/1000 cap would be low even though they have the same population. As a result, most of my characters are now on a dead server. I find it idiotic to have to switch back or w/e start on a new server.

Anyway that is my 5 minutes of input.

You have to take into account the free-to-play weekend. This totally blasted the number of players on servers like Zekkeg beast far out of proportion, when we'd see something like 260 people on Korriban.
