Bioware..

I realise you must be hoping that F2P increases the server pop on the Oceanic Servers to make them viable, but why should we paying subscribers be forced to use these vastly underpopulated ghost-tows why we wait for freeloaders?

Allow us to transfer off of these oceanic servers ASAP, or I for one will be unsubscribing.

And further to the point, it would be nice to get an official response to this instead of the usual trolls from the community, or the deafening silence form Bioware/EA

I have tried my self to transfer over and over they don't care about Oceanic at all it's all USA USA USA Dalborra is a bag of crap I would rather have a higher ping than continue with Dalborra it's putting players 10 steps back they should just close down all 3 Oceanic servers and merge us all on a super server also get rid of RP servers just have 2 types of super servers PvP and PvE.

I feel your pain. However, this will just be another ignored thread. In their eyes, the APAC servers are fine, and will be good after F2P. This is just not the case though.

You are no loss to the dalborra server, but I'm glad you like to put yourself in a disadvantage with higher ping.
Do we need a super server for the oceanic's? Probably, but it's only so the pvpers think they'll get more ranked matches. Because in Dalborra there is plenty of people to do ops with.

I have no trouble at all with getting groups on Dalborra so good luck with the higher ping. But I do have to say that with some of the times that I play the US west servers could be better but I would not trade for a higher ping.

Should have played it smart and not transferred to the oceanic servers in the first place.

As far as I recall there was an immense amount of pressure from the Oceanic community to make BioWare open local servers there. It's very unfortunate that players there now ask to be able to transfer back to US servers.

I agree, it's unfortunate, but having a ghosttown for a server impacts the enjoyment of game play in many serious ways .. The GTN economy is dead, the warzones take a long time to pop, it's almost impossible to find someone to play along with for HM OPS during the day.. (some of us are shift workers and don't get to play in prime time).

Merging the three oceanic servers would go some way to alleviating this issue.

...That's a highly ignorant view. There are plenty of Rpers enough to populate a server between all three regions. Thats very much the viewpoint of someone who doesn't care about Rping at all.
