They already have this on all PVE servers you can flag yourself for PVP at any time and it takes 5mins in a safe area to remove the flag - this works fine - gives people the option to opt in to PVP if they want or just play PVE

I really REALLY wouldn't classify most of Gav Daragon as "The Rper's". The servers RP community is in the minority from day 1 of this games launch due to no enforcements on RP rules, which caused players to treat it like a less like an RP server and more like a populated PVE server with less lag.

Certainly needs a merge though. Not enough players, and with a lot of the smaller guild having merged into one guild it's made playing even harder. My only concern is that the RP community that does exist on Gav Daragon will come under fire and garner a lot of abuse from players on the PVE server when they try and RP on said server.

Hey Andynul here it seems to me that im the one representing my guild on these forums Order of Chaos (imp) Chaos of Order (pub) i rerooled over to this server at the starte of the summer since Ven Zallow server had died. I will say that yes im an american on an Oceanic server the ping is usually at 220 for me and it doesnt seem that laggy for me at all. now grante it i do get a lag here and there. now for the time zone difference yes its different but when its 430am AUS time thats a great time for me to go questing or play on an alt. I have been able to do rated pvp on AUS time Zone its not that hard to just learn a different time zone. Now i dont know bout other guilds since im not in them but im aware that my guild is still going strong even with GW2 coming out we havent lost any players we have gain a few tho which is a plus . As everyone else is saying once f2p comes live it'll get more populated hopefully. I know that a few of my friends here are going to join this server once f2p is live.

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 support this message.

The oceanic pve server has a standard population during peak hours so I suggest either let us xfer to that server as well let's face it there really isn't much world pvp due to maps and story lines being seperate. My second suggestion is cross realm queing for wz's and fps

As a shift worker who can only play during the day normally, Master D is basically dead. At 12:30pm EST there are (checks) 19 people on fleet. Queues are not popping..

Please give us the ability to server transfer to the US servers,

This is really pathetic Bioware, I can't get a PVP queue to pop because there is almost nobody on my server thanks to GW2's release, and what do you guys at Bioware think will happen when MOP is released? I bet the server pop plummets further. Merge the servers or let us server transfer back to the US.

It has gotten quieter over the last week or so with GW2 launching. PvP WZ pops are slower than what they were.. There is definatly less people on the Dalborra server than there were several months back.

Slowly but surely Dalborra population is Dwindling, as are the other Oceanic Servers. I do hope BW has the guts to merge all 3 Oceanic Servers. I am definatly over logging on during the D/time to see ....not so many peeps on.

Edit: on a side note, I did go out today and get GW2

With GW2 release numbers on Master Dar'Nala are no more than 70 on the imperial fleet during prime time. All though I believe many players will come back when the game goes F2P and FOTM game crazes wear off, it would be nice for BW to atleast acknowledge they are looking into a plan for the Oceanic Servers.

Its great having our own servers, would just be nice if we had people to play with

I don't think it's a matter of "coming back" because many of us didn't leave at all. GW2 is free to play so no real economic loss other than the initial purchase.

Of course we need motivation to come back. A simple level increase won't be enough - would need new content and something to really excite us.
