EA just released their earnings and Star Wars subs are down 25% for the quarter. This can't be a good thing. Can we get server mergers ASAP?

Hey guys,

I rarely, if ever, post on the forum here...but I thought I would let you know something important:

Torstatus.net shows that almost every single server went into the negative after Diablo 3 release.

Also, I know you guys want to argue with people about how much you love SWTOR, yet you aren't playing it...

But, I think no one is responding because they are too busy playing Diablo 3 while you are still angry.

Hope this helps. May the force be with you and the three players left on your server.
First of all - the stats were like that for most of last week (except for the bottom half of the US servers, which were in the green for most of the week).
Second - uhmm, no - from the looks of things pretty much no one is playing D3 much because (OMG!!!!) the servers have been down throughout the day since release.

I think eq1 and uo were actualy nastier, people were alot more invested in their characters because of the time and dificulty it took to make them. and if you screwed with that , watch out!

Its the same reason people rage agasint mmo companies today.
The EQ1 forums were pretty much lawless. Made Mos Eisley look like a nunnery.

I dunno whether it's just the usual rose-tinted glasses that make people think things were better in the old days, or whether they just weren't there, but it's strange to see people saying EQ1 (or even vannilla WoW) wasn't bad, it was.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

Just proof that haters are going to hate, and they need only the smallest imperfection to do so.

I put the rabid haters and the head in the sand fanboys in the same category. Neither offer any reality based soloutions and both would have a negative impact on the games if the devs ever listened to them.

So... SWTOR's problem is that it has a "small imperfection"?

Wow, I figured we'd get to page 2, at LEAST, before someone put words in my mouth.

I just skipped ahead to the end of the story.

I could see where it was going anyway.
