What dribble. Keep digging that hole.

MD players want people to play with.

Personally, I had terrible latency issues through my router, HOWEVER, I then port-forwarded, and my latency has been 30ms max ever since, which is wonderful.

I don't think people should have to port forward to solve their problems though.
the problem is the server poulations are low on all the APAC servers compared to the US/EU servers

Try, MDN is so low their is only a few guilds left that are able to make up numbers for operations. 16 man ops just don't happen anymore. PVP queues go for hour or more during the day, flashpoint queues don't pop during the day.

Many people in my guild log in and they are either the only person online sometimes or one of a few people. Its freaking scary bad.

One thing that I'd like to know I'd how long will this additional period of feedback to Bioware last before they take action?

The thread's already pretty huge and it seems as though the major ideas on how to proceed have been discussed pretty thoroughly. I just hope that this doesn't drag on for months and months again.

Ditto. There's been far too long between each of BioWare's responses, this should be finished with.

This will give the best chance for the communities to stay together and those who hate it completely can just leave.

And again I'll reiterate don't offer transfer to random servers as people will take them and it won't solve the population issues for the remaining players in Oceania. Trying to keep these communities together for the most part is best for all.
+1

Looking forward to some changes, thanks for listening devs.

Playing on GD, a returning subscriber, I guess I don't see it as much since I'm still just leveling everyone (and enjoying it) - that said, it's a bit disappointing to try and queue for something, and then realising it's a wasted effort.

As a player, there's nothing I love more than seeing new players enter the game, and I suppose the current state of them isn't ideal to say to new people "Wow, look how alive and popping it is here, you should hang out for a while!"

I vote some kind of SUPER-SERVER.

Sure hope not, imagine the hive of activity that would come with a spanky new "super" server when Makeb arrives.
We might actually have the MM part back in MMORPG

Nice to see more RP players from GD voicing their support of server merge.
