Guys here is a new tact: Go over to http://www.kotaku.com.au/contact/ or any other games site you reckon might help. I'm going to try contact PA next.

Link them to this thread and suggest they run the story on their front page. I've already done it, maybe if enough of us do they will give us some airtime and some exec from EA will see it and demand something be done to stop the bad publicity.

They are already getting a lot of flack with the "gay planet" doing the rounds.

Maybe the current management of SWTOR are aiming to be as notorious as their SWG forbears: http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2004/08/25

Not much point, I've already emailed and linked this thread to sites etc and no one is biting. I got a CS response saying it'll only be dealt with in the suggestion box by a dev. Made a post there but keeps slipping off the main as no one is commenting on it so going unnoticed.

I'm unsubbing once feb hits. Not getting what I've payed for.

i was just thinking that if bioware shut down the APAC servers they would have to be insane. this game has had so much bad press that they would really want to not do anything that would bring more bad press to it.

Bad press is all there is left.

They left us lagging here so long in silence that they have hurt the population further to where they will struggle to justify a merge, let alone keeping the APAC servers, to the bean counters. They had a market, they mismanaged the market, and the next step is close it down, blaming the lack of market.

This is why you have developer posts and PR, to not get in this mess. But they have obviously been told to be silent on the issue.
Laugh and the universe laughs with you, cry and you're on the path to the dark side.

Now that reputation grinds are being introduced across your legacy we need transfers ASAP so we can have all our characters on one server.

I think if we have a massive sit in on one of the US servers that would be news worthy

Not sure what's worse... Saying they'll do something about it but then taking forever to do it(eg; ranked warzones) or just ignoring us and not replying to acknowledge the problem
