Is a large number of people affected. Primarily from Australia.
This problem has been going on for how long? Now if the problem just accured and someone tried to say look all three of those servers were heavy 4 days ago and now they are all standard your point would be valid.

The servers have been barely hitting standard for a few months now so this new issue wouldnt have caused it.
If this game is so great then why do so many people that love the game spend all their time in the forums?

Just laugh at the petulence & keep on playing. They'll eventually hyperventilate and move on to the next new MMO.
Peace out . . .

Looking at the data from TORstatus we can see in the US:

Server name Population (07/15-07/29) Change

The Harbinger 2.34 -0.11
Begeren Colony 2.30 +0.15
The Bastion 2.28 -0.15
Drooga's Pleasure Barge 2.27 -0.08
The Ebon Hawk 2.18 +0.06
Corellian Run 2.11 +0.03
Jedi Covenant 2.10 -0.02
The Shadowlands 2.04 -0.09
Canderous Ordo 2.03 -0.06
Prophecy of the Five 1.97 -0.28
The Fatman 1.86 -0.08
Jung Ma 1.85 -0.01

Where the values are explained on their site (www.torstatus.com)

But basically the destination servers have seen a decline of -0.64 over the last 2 weeks... which is pretty drastic

EU servers are similar.

I guess Bioware secretly raised the population caps for the 3rd or 4th time? or the game is still declining?
Yawns... zzzZZZZZzzzz

- 1.3 has been and gone, players have burned through what little content was added and have taken their next break... nothing new

- Its summer time... holiday season has hit subs... nothing new

- Maybe Server Caps have been raised - - -big deal.. the game performance is still shockingly bad for many players and server lagging has become worse than it was at launch .. not even gunna bother with FPS cos we all know the score there... well maybe not all but mine has certainly gone a long way south since the transfers and higher server pops (but then I saw that coming all along.. put a mass back into the fleet and you just end up with a launch week scenario and all the bad FPS/lag issues all over again - but we all wanted servers to be busier I guess so this is the trade off

- BTW Red Eclipse server seems to be busy most times of the day, so compared to how things were when I was over on Colonel Tobin... any more than 20 on fleet is a major population improvement for me

Well this is suppost to be a MMO. MMO's are not designed for play one month take 3 months off, they are made so you always stay subbed and want to log in often.

- Its summer time... holiday season has hit subs... nothing new

What holiday season is in the summer? Also please explain the Australian server decline if you say its because of the summer.

- Maybe Server Caps have been raised - - -big deal.. the game performance is still shockingly bad for many players and server lagging has become worse than it was at launch .. not even gunna bother with FPS cos we all know the score there... well maybe not all but mine has certainly gone a long way south since the transfers and higher server pops (but then I saw that coming all along.. put a mass back into the fleet and you just end up with a launch week scenario and all the bad FPS/lag issues all over again - but we all wanted servers to be busier I guess so this is the trade off

Again you have no proof that caps were raised. So to use that as a reason is wrong.

- BTW Red Eclipse server seems to be busy most times of the day, so compared to how things were when I was over on Colonel Tobin... any more than 20 on fleet is a major population improvement for me
So in your last statement your basically saying as long as the destination servers have more than 20 people on them there is nothing to worry about. We only need to worry when it gets down to 20?

Its also that people didnt rush into the content, its because the content is so easy that many people finished it so fast.
I'm talking post merge. That was the point.

So we dont have to hunt for what you said because these forums nerfed the pyramids. Your comment was

"Looking over TOR status (which by its nature is NOT a good predictor of subs) I see SLIGHT decline. That's in line with the tendency to rush into the content and then stop logging in as people wait for new content.

What new content was added at the server merge? It was all fluff basically and there was no real new content added so to say people burned though it is crazy since there was none to burn though

You don't even see the decline on some servers. It's perfectly level on many of them.

You see the decline if you looked. Remember back when the servers first merged all the posts about OMG queue times of an hour or more on some cases. Also remember that most of the 26 servers except for the some of the RP and the Australian servers were full. Now look and most of them don not hit full(with the exception of this last sunday) in the last 2 weeks. The PVP servers are mostly standard now with occasionally hitty heavy. The PVE servers are doing better but still nothing like they were right after the merge.

I'm not worried. When we declined from 1.7 to 1.3, it was much more dramatic."

This is about pre-merges so why did you say you were talking about post merges? Like before the merge the servers dropped gradually and the similiar situation is happening after the merges.
If this game is so great then why do so many people that love the game spend all their time in the forums?

Lag in Denova don't help matters at all, why play when you cant kill stuff due to lag?

F2P has turned DDO, LOTRO and several others from cancellation into very profitable.

EA is driving industry cash shop models from alternative downloadable content for console games to traditional pay per content PC games.

My prediction is that 1.4 will be the last regular update and with it will come the announcement of the full F2P model for November.

And there is nothing but good in such a move.

Because effectively closing 90% of the servers is just haters spouting mindless doom and gloom right? Why does this game have fewer servers than Rift anyway?
