+1 for server merge, we need it asap, but not looking forward to getting pwned by midian again! Actually i'd just be happy to have a few teams to play ranked with.

I get bout the same speed but i pay $59/month, My ping in wow was always ~180 .. and even on the US server in SWTOR it was 190.... guess it just comes down to location.

I'm on Dalborra, population isn't dead but it has dwindled slightly I'm all for a merger get everyone onto a superserver and let the good times roll

We had a 50 PVP game going at 10 AM. Dalborra had 3 50 PVP games going on at the same time.

Dalborra had a 50 PVP game going at 2 AM. Myself and 3 others were the only ones on the Republic fleet.

+1 for server merges. It is very difficult to find a group for flashpoints nowdays, one month ago i could easily pug it. Yes the population has dropped significantly, and something must be done about it.
I hope it is not the end for the oceanic servers, because i enjoy playing with 30 ms ping instead of 180 ms )) Cya in-game

Thanks again.
Thanks for the update, Joveth; knowing our concerns have been heard is very reassuring. I'm just putting in my 2c(AUS) worth; it's commendable that you want APAC players to have a choice of servers and play styles, but if the server becomes a ghost-town, then (sorry to state the bleeding obvious here) they don't have that choice.

I love, love, love the ping rate on the APAC servers. I really appreciate that you took the trouble, and I value the improved quality of having local servers over any particular play style. If merging the servers is the best way to get a healthy rate of pops for WZs and the like, it may well be a better option than letting the poor PvPers languish in an empty fleet; after all, even on Gav Daragon, I see frequent WZ pops. There's not a lot of open world PvP that isn't event based and pre-organised anyhow, so I suspect it can be made to work.
