The cynic in me doesnt hold much hope of a server merge for you guys,I think that pretty soon, the nxt announcement will be free server transfers for you to US servers and server migration to the US server farms for all EU servers. EA/BW are looking to maximise profit and by closing down the overseas operations will save them lots of cash.Plus, if they then sell on said farms they can recoup more money. Sounds brutal but I bet u its under discussion. Turbine did it with LOTRO and EA/BW seem to be following a similar path.
I sincerely hope not. They would have to still have some "dedicated" servers for people in our time zone to join, otherwise people will be going all over the shop, they'll login at 7:30pm AEST and find 2 people on the server at the same time. Not to mention the number of people that will simply up and leave from the feeling of betrayal from EA/BW.

I do hope that BW looks seriously at merging the 3 Oceanic Servers. I roll on Dallborra. My main focus "in-game" is PvP, and working the GTN. At this stage I am not to fussed on running Flashpoints, and Raids. As far as I am concerned it would be nice to have one Mega Server for people in Southern Hempishere countries.

Not just the time zone, the incredible ping, relinquishing this incredible service would be 100 percent disastrous

Do want server merges here.

When transfers came up, there was always 2 instances of fleet on MDN (PvP server), which slowly went down to 200 people, then down to 150, and now we are at about 50-60 most nights. Would love to see these servers come together.

Yeah slap PVE/PVP together for sure.
While there is the added fun and worry of the possibility of getting you head smooshed in by a higher level on Tatooine and such, it doesn't really happen all that often. I think i have only run into a purposeful ganking group twice since being on the AU servers.
I think it also really adds to the game, like the vendor battle at the end of the Rakghoul event:

But yeah MDN is really getting low now, noticably, and it seems to be light when the other two are standard on occasions

That suxs guys - where still getting 150ish on fleet during the evenings on Dalborra and you can still get a lvl 50 Warzone pop after midnight, then most people tend to switch to lowbie warzones and they still pop through most of the night, only gets really dead in the wee hours around 3-5am

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 can prove it,
my friend is there,
last week, he just rerolled to US server,
pity.
English is not my first language, still working on it.
