In order to improve overall performance, the maximum number of simultaneous players on the Imperial and Republic Fleets has been decreased.
Does that mean that the # per instance has been lowered or that the overall number allowed on the server changed (i.e. server full / queue will start sooner)

since they specifically said fleet i assume there will be more instances on the fleet in order to speed up game play

Since they're only speaking about the fleets and not any other instance in the game, it surely means they just lowered the number of players before another is spawned.

Less players on fleet before it gets sharded, nothing has been done about the overall population cap

More fleet instances, hopefully itll fix the lag problem. Now if they can give neXus and Nova on nightmare lands (originally from Bao-Dur) their Guild Banks back i'll be happy.

Both republic and imperial law insist you must now remain on your ship when the fleet is over-crowded or face the concequences.

I wonder how they plan to ever have "super servers" if an enclosed instance like the fleet is causing massive performance problems when 300+ are on.

Wouldn't be that big of a deal.

Cryptic and STO/CO has instances and they are all under 100. Why do you need more than that many people in one instance any way? Much better to have share a instance and have little lag than to be crowded on one big instance and it isn't really necessary.

Good for fleet to be sure but I wouldnt mind seeing the lvl 50 daily areas shared out at lower pops as well to reduce the clutter and competition
In regards to lessening F2P and Preferred restrictions
In GAMING, as in LIFE,
You get what you pay for
No game restriction is so dire that $15.00/month will not eliminate it

i still havent seen a flat out post that someone from bioware said super servers were coming, I was under the impression that was a rumor made by the community because we read into everything..if thats not the case then i appologize. if its the community over reaching and over reading into things, we need to watch that or bad things can happen:P
