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 :/
made a note of this on my 1st post, it seems everyone on that thread more or less says the same thing

Yeah true and what not, I just honestly see it ENDLESSLY trolled.

Esp. once free2play rocks up man, I know there's gonna be trolls in general ofc. But holy shi- a f2p trolling an RP server would be a massive nightmare man. Just my personal opinion, it's way too abuse-able :/

My 2 cents only ofc, and I wouldn't personally mind at all if it was an entire merge. I just can't see it working at all.

I think a merger of the three servers is in order. I do have a query regarding those people in the customer help forums with difficulties connecting to dalborra?

I also volunteer to spend 3-4 hours a day helping encourage people to NOT troll any Roleplayers that reside on a combined server.

Oh yep XD

I do remember you now. I seriously cannot see a better future for APAC SWTOR other than a merge hey.

I'm not one for doomsday saying etc, cause I think this game has amazing potential and at times Master Dar'Nala is quite good, but honestly 90 percent of the time it's really not. But as far as APAC goes? It's kinda scary man.

The best way to solve it then would be to merge pve - pvp and let the roll players transfer if they want. But your point about f2p and trolling, same thing will happen on their server, people will roll on their server just to troll the RPers.
I think it's less of an issue then them having no one to play with because their server dies.

My only issue with them having the choice?

You could split the RP community in two thus with dribs and drabs coming onto the RP server then, so that in itself may cause it's own doom.

I think it would have to be an all or nothing option. And a heavily moderated /rpchannel.

I have absolutely no experience in a RP server but an issue that springs to mind is say for eg in a WZ. You have a premade of 4 RP'ers and a premade of 4 PVP'ers. I'm a bit of a gambling man, but eventually you'll have a situation where say the RP'ers talked in /ops with some form of RP, and the PVP'ers are like, ROFL *** IS THIS LET'S MAKE FUN OF THIS... People get ignored and that WZ goes to absolute horrible, then incites a *****torm in /1 on the fleet afterwoods.

I know this comes down to trolls being trolls, but I could see things like this happening regularly.

It'd be interesting to hear some RP'ers weigh on this debate imho.

Yes there will be trolling, its bound to happen, it already happens without the RPers, i myself do it sometimes when im bored but there is ways around it and they are all extreamly effective.
1. Privet channel- this already works wonders with out Endgame channel, it stoped the endless fpg spam
2. ignore- it's there use it, it is your best friend against trolling
3. not in General- seriously if your doing it in general your begging for it, you don't have to roleplay 24/7
4. socialise- having a guild or bunch of friends is more or less how most roleplayers choose to roleplay, rarely do they do it out in the open
5. don't get angry- getting angry just feeds the trolls, they love it when you get angry

all of this will garantee a happy peacefull experiance for anyone not just Roleplayers

I should probably apologize for this too, and I probably won't stop soon, cause I'm definately certain this is the way to go for APAC.
