Ahh always on the offensive when someone's view is different , I'm not saying what YOU want, but I let other peoples attitude speak for themselves. I (that's me) do think from what I read recently on whirlpool that merging a PVP server with a PVP server isn't a silly idea but hey each to their own. please respect that, I respect your view.

Only, you know, without all the problems servre merges would cause, such as losing out on at least two realm types, people losing their character and legacy names and the potential of queue times before people can log on if the new merged server ends up with too many people.

Hey Owen, are you on Master Dar'Nala?
If yes - Then I respect your opinion.
If no - I would point to the vast majority of Master Dar'Nala players that have explicitly expressed a desire to merge into a PvE server to preserve the local Ping. I know in reading through all these forums it's only the very select few on Master D (actually none that I can recall right now, but I'm sure there's a few) that want to stay on a PvP server.

Either way, that's why we've called for the secondary implantation of transfers (after a server merge), so that these players can get off APAC and over to Bastion if that's what they really want.

There were 36 x 50s on Gav and showing Standard.

There were 82 x 50s on MDN and showing light.

On gav there was 100+ 1-20s and yet ord mantell had 22 people on it...... MDN had the same and showed light.

Bioware isn't going to let you have your little server to yourselves. There was only about 120 people in the 20-49 bracket. Republic side on Gav. the same as MDN and yet it showed Light.

No where near fine. We merge or APAC dies.

Are you sure? If this thread proves anything it's that Bioware are perfectly happy to let a server carry on with a minimal population. They have been reluctant to act when that population has been crying out for change; why should they be any less inactive if that population is content? GD won't die if Dalborra and MDN merge. Do that Bioware, and do it quickly please. But kindly leave us be. Remember that many players who choose to play on RP servers do so to avoid certain anti-social aspects of the community that they perceive to be more prevalent on standard PVE and PVP servers. Please don't deny current and future APAC players that choice.

It would be interesting to see statistically how many people feel the same way compared to those who are in favor of a merge. If gav dag were to be left out, transfers would have to be offered to join the newly merged APAC server or one of the US RP servers to be fair to those not happy with the population. I believe that would significantly impact the already dwindling population so much so that it would not be worth keeping the server open, or if it were, it would not be enjoyable for those left on it.

So if the only options were to either merge with the APAC server or merge with a US RP server, what would be your preference gav dag players?

As has been said many times - not everyone is going to be happy with the outcome but i believe it's evident from this thread that the vast majority want this merge to happen and would enjoy playing in a high population environment despite the sacrifices (loss of open world pvp and rp rules, name changes... can't think of any others). The rest just have to make the best of it and choose the least crappy option

Just one comment, asking for cross server stuff is pointless.
SWTOR's solution to make group content easier to do was Mega Servers.
They aren't going to develop a whole new system for APAC.

They really need to put it to a vote, merger or transfers.

What they should work on is some kind of network tunnel that would improve the ping of other APAC players outside of Aus and NZ. If they had better regional connectivity there might never have been a pop problem.

Maybe it is just a cable fault causing high latency http://advisories.internode.on.net/item/10735/
