Is there any chance you can let us know whether you plan to open a third PVE-EC destination?

Thank you very much. Can you also (in general terms) shed some light on why servers are being chosen for different roles or why certain servers are being done before others? Is it just what you think will fit that particular shape, random, some other metric?

No worries by the weekend I'm sure there will be a few thousand less subs due to the "gradual" process. I have to hand it to you guys you type a lot on here and really say nothing. It's all "maybes" and "what ifs" and "soon". Here's one thing that's a sure bet for you, June 20th 2012 you will be 15 dollars poorer.

Have a nice day.

I've been patient so far, biding my time and not being vocal on this. BUT get to Belgoth's Beacon already, were one of 7 pvp servers in NA left, get us our transfer or send people to us already.

Create a new destination and left the poor bastards, (im included) on a trash server with much lower population.
Well I consider myself lucky, I did not want to end up on ToFN. I hope they will make either Basilisk Droid or Bloodworthy a destination server and then those who want to actually transfer off of ToFN (Yes believe me there are lots) can head off either through paid or Bioware could allow transfers off for a short period. Or as has been suggested before, change an origins servers current destination.

Yeah that seems like the more logical thing. Yes people could come back, like Legions of Lettow had 250 ppl online after 1.2 for about a week and then slowly died down. But don't forget those who left on other servers. When they return if they return either server caps will be raised or new transfers etc.

But in general I think this is what they're going for. Slowly raising the caps and working towards said super servers.

Course I could be totally wrong we may have 2 PvP servers one just being less populated. And then over time they may even out.
