I'm still playing because of the local servers, 25ms versus 600-800ms is no contest. If there were no local servers I probably wouldn't play. Also I'm on a PvP server but I don't think world PvP as it stands is worth the trouble. Players are the life of the game and currently we're spread too thin.

I have to agree with you here. Many a time EAware has said they will take action on various tasks, yet have not followed through.

Thank you Joveth for the official response. I'm glad the Developers are taking notice, though I would like to see these words put into action.

Get yourself a better ISP or replace a new boardband modem might help?

I don't live in Australia, I live in Hong Kong. My ping to Aus servers is around 160ms~180ms, my ping to US servers is around 150ms~170ms.

I can't believe you have 600ms~800ms from Aus to US, seriously?? You are talking like you live in third world with using a 28k modem.... I heard someone from Thailand still can manage with 350ms, twice as fast as yours. Hell 350ms is already very close to "unplayable". LOL, please don't fool me I don't think connection to US is that bad from Aus.

Well, yes & no. I have un-sub about a month ago, but my remained pre-paid subscription is not burnt out yet, so I can still post at the forum or play the game.

I believe once my time is drained out totally, I won't be able to troll here anymore. Don't worry, it won't be long last I checked.

P.S. But then I guess once SWTOR become F2P, anyone can troll here, open an account becoming free anway. Beware!!

Will F2P brought tons of new player to SWTOR I do not know.

But I am 100% sure it will stop the un-sub number. As ppl do not need to un-sub anymore even they left the game forever. Like I bought GW2, played a week, then decide never to touch it again. My GW2 account is still "open" forever, as it is F2P, I do not need to cancel my account like the monthly one. For the player -- I had left. For the company annual report -- I never leave.

Smart trick to cover the crack on the wall right?


[[ P.S. I think SWTOR > GW2. Not a SWTOR hater myself, just disappointed. ]]

hmm....well...i live in thailand and my ping to US is around 350-400 while in APEC server it s 100-150.

but your claim of having 160-180 to US server.I find it hard to belive sir.

perhaps your ISP in Hongkong is really advance than my country.or some other reason.

anyway can you post your modem or ISP ? i really want to know what you use.

ISP: PCCW (50M boardband service plan)
Modem: the modem was given by PCCW, as I also have the boardband TV -- "NOW", their share the same modem. (btw, does the modem matter?)

My ping to US servers to WOW is always around 190ms-230ms (was around 280ms-350ms years ago).
To other MMOs like RIFT / Warhammer is around 250ms (but RIFT is a strange game with serious lag and FPS problem, I would had loved RIFT if they don't have this problem)
SWOTR is able to give me the best ping even somehow, always below 200ms to US or Aus servers, like I mentioned, I got a bit better ping to US even, kudos to them. BUT... too bad I want to have a game to play, not to wait at queue.

So where is the problem of population the max number of players you can have in an ops group is 32 so with these numbers it would theoretically be easy to finish flashpoints/operations (I know most have not got the gear to complete hard mode but it is our job to help them get there). This does come from the view point of someone under lv50 but I do help the lv50s in my guild (chaos squad).
What you are suggesting is that if every player on the server decides to all play together they might be able to do 2 operations at the same time?

Really? Every single level 50 player on the server can only scrape together 2 operations (or 4 games of PvP in peak time) and you think that there really isn't a population problem?

The servers need to merge or free transfers need to be on offer.
