It turns out that players are more likely to play respectfully if there is a chance that they may be paired with the other people in the group again
I must applaud the whole paragraph that defends the non-cross-server argument.
I wish all communication your could always be as sincere, direct, convincing and reasonable as that.
The call to action at the end seems very proper to soften the 'us vs them' mentality that forums always nurture.
Thank you.

I, as a healer, concur that things are generally a lot more polite when groups are kept in-server, as there is not only the chance that they may group up with you again, but that you can put the word around your server on that players rudeness/non-team spirit. I have done about 8 runs (on various characters) on the PTS & each one has been great fun. As to those saying about wait times: This is often due to a lack of a certain class (normally Tanks/Healers), but again: With keeping it same-server, those that have been put off from those rolls, in the way described in the article (because it's *Never* the dps's fault o_O), may find Tanking/Healing fun again.

Or maybe we stay together after that Heroic and do regular quests together, having fun being social.
Exactly.

Wouldn't it be better if players were able to access it earlier than level 10 so that they could use it on their origin planets?

Decent point, I'm pretty sure there are 2 to three heroics per origin planet, and at least one heroic 4 per planet as well.

That was my thought too. I created a new player on PTS to test and the group finder while not able to queue shows both hutta and korriban as content able to be selected would make it easier to get content done such as the heroics.

Well if we ask for it before level 10 i feel like we can get it. Plus the Origin planets usually have a bit more people on them that you can find just by general chat.

Sounds nice... but I don'T know if I will continue to play... I thought my server did not that bad, still it was not chosen to become one of the few servers people can transfer to, so I had rename my main and that is a dealbreaker for me.
