When will there be a "SERVER MERGE?"

Seems like almost every server is low population. At Peak hours, there are not many people on any one server. Rift had this issue, and in the beginning, they shut down servers, and allowed people to merge to other servers. It's odd that it takes hours at lvl 50 for a PVP game to pop, as there is hardly anyone on the servers. They also need to implement CROSS REALM Ques. WOW did this, and was a huge success. For any new MMO not to include this off the bat, is beyond bizarre to me. I think Bioware is too focused on fixing bugs than getting these servers in line. Wish I never leveled on what is now a "Low POP" server, as most of the time I feel like this is a single player game.

Bioware, what say you?

to the guy in the old post saying im to blame for the many servers being created. not once did i say anything about them needing more servers but instead to raise the cap. I rolled on anchorhead and stayed on anchorhead even with the queues at the beginning

Former Senator Contisplex player here..

When I started, we had about 20-30 people saturday in republic fleet. Queueing for warzones was possible actually.

Now after a month.. warzones just never ever come, everyone completely left and only people playing are the ones with 7 days trials.
saturday-sunday evening 2-4 people in republic fleet and all are level 10-20.

Ghosts servers are horrible so I had to leave to the more popular server, where everything is fine and good. But I miss my sage, and there is no way i can play him, there are just absolutely no people, everyone left, or minority like me who didn't leave are playing in other servers.. *sigh*

People keep saying if you are on a low pop server you should reroll on a populated server but, that doesn't fix anything in the end. Instead you get tons of people who have wasted money on months of playing and building a character they probably really like just to reroll the exact same thing on a server that is bursting with people. which just makes the low pop servers even lower pop and then eventually the servers that were standard or heavy are going to be full and people will complain about lag or about too many people for this or that....

They need to first off merge the low pop servers and then allow transfers so the people that rerolled can move their characters back to their home server if they desire to do so, in effect getting to keep everythign they have worked on on one server.

My point is, they have already announced server transfers are coming, but this is going to take time.

So you may either bash them over the head and scream and shout, or you can reroll on a more populated server for now and enjoy your time until then.

The option is yours.

Some of usare saying that if you like the game and are hurting to roll an alt for the time being because its going to be a bit before a merge is possible! They are stating End of April for Asia/ Pacific and later on for the rest<----- This has been stated multiple times but its simply amazing how no one bothers to see this or understand

Merge the servers already or offer free transfers. Bioware is losing money hand over fist at this moment in regards to this issue.
