Oceanic Servers plans?

Just want to find out what Bioware is planning with the oceanic servers as with the US we are experiencing a declining population which is getting worse and with the launch of GW2 soon its going to push more people away with a lack of people to play with/against.

I feel its pretty late to be bringing this up but I hope Bioware has seen this and planned already for it. I approached the RP server and feel merging the PvE and RP to a PVE-RP server would be best and also allowing transfers from the PvP server to the new amalgamation server would be a great effort at bolstering numbers and confidence in the game.

Bringing together all those who wish to continue playing will be the best effort to put confidence in those who wish to remain with this game until it finds it's feet and until the numbers start returning as so many have shown the intention of coming back at the release of new content and with the maturity of the game coming in time.

I think the 2 PVE server for oceanic regions should be merged for sure. I'm on Gav Daragon and there's very little RP going on anyway. I don't think it will change much say bringing everyone from Dalborra across to this server, nor would it put many people out if it went the other way (I think it would be "nicer" to have everyone on an RP server than a pure PVE server though so people don't feel unwelcome to RP).

I think merging of the server's is definately needed. The numbers are going to without a doubt drop when GW2 comes out and then again when PvP is introduced into D3. Merging these servers will ensure that the Australian servers will not only survive but also stay strong.

AGREED.

There would be naming issues, guild banks, and what not. However, it's a sacrifice we would have to make. I'm not sure how those RP guys will feel about it though, but I sure as hell want more GF and PvP pops going on.

personal i think all three should be merged not just the PVE-RP and PVE, it should also include the PVP.
as of late the Republic on Dalborra has had a fair amount of people from the pvp server asking what our population is like and if we would support the idea of a merge, and now it seem the roleplayers also have the same idea so why not have just one server?

i mean realy whats the pvp server going to miss out on? a gankfest every now and then?
and the roleplayers don't seem to have much roll playing going on.

personaly i don't like the idea of everyone going to the RP server i mean why should the highest population of all three (dalborra) be the ones that have to move, why can't it be the other 2 that merge with us?

EDIT:
have a look at this post too

As a member of the Oceanic PVP server, I too would love to see all three servers combined into one PVE server. It would suck a little losing the option to grief lowbies when I got bored, but most of the time I get bored because the PVP server population is so low I find times with nothing to do. At the very least they should allow servers off the PVP server to the other two servers, our population always seems to be the lowest out of the three, sitting at light when the other two are at standard.

All it would take is some organisation of world PVP events in PVP areas and it would help the PVPers get some world PVP, not that their is much incentive at the moment for world PVP anyway. It'd be an easy fix.

I see very little negatives to merging the three servers.

I agree. It wouldn't be hard to rename(catagorize? w.e) Dalborra to 'PVE-RP' if people were that adament about it and we have rpers on the PVP server, they just named their guild "RP-PVP" (Or something of the like) and I've looked at the rp server and they have a rp channel on their anway, evidently you could do the same on any other server.

I made a thread about this just a few days ago myself.

100 percent pve/pvp merge. I'd definately be okay w/ not ganking lowbies for a healthy population.

But I also thought let the RP guys have their own server. This is also 100 percent out of respect for them, cause I know as sure as **** that many players from PVE/PVP would love to troll that /1 so viciously... I couldn't see it working at all :/

as it stands several of the top guild (cake, face , gimp, mvp ect ect) on dalborra do go out of there way to have events like faceoffs and gankfests in tatooine and blackhole and even ilum, so there is no real shortage of pvp on our server

If you had moderators for the rp channel it's easy to move past, they just use the rp channel/group up and kick people who are trolling. And their is an ignore button for a reason, I mean lets be real they probably already get trolls on their server as it is. Nothing will stop trolls.
