As someone on the PvP server Master Dar'Nala, I would love to be merged with the PvE server so that there are a heap more people to play with. Thanks!

Please remember to respect others opinions even if they do not align with your own.

For or against is irrelevant, every one is entitled to their opinion and there is no harm in talking nice to each other either , some should give that a try once in a while.

Take hamsel and Corsiero (except maybe his last point )posts , they made there point known and did it clearly.

The cynic in me totally agrees this will probably happen but I hope they are not so stupid as to punt us onward saying they will look after Makeb settles after telling us the same thing for F2P and never doing anything.

Not that they would tell us anything (since they never have) but I suspect that the issue is a one year contract on the APAC server hardware, so we will get told nothing till March/April (still sooner than Makeb) and then either the contract is interfeering with hardware upgrade for a superserver and we may get the desired merge, or more likely we are being bussed back to the US servers at that time.

APAC ping is probably destined for the same place as the orange pixel.

In response to Allie...my main now resides on The Harbinger. I do however, have 3 toons on GD where I started my Star Wars journey. I have met A LOT of APAC players on The Harbinger in the same boat as me...people who have re-rolled due to lack of population on the APAC servers. While this exodus may have created the nice, small niche that you seem to crave, rest assured that if a server merge occurs players will begin returning to our own mega server. I will try to be the first in line. What the majority of us want is a population that supports the definition of MMO. If and when a merger occurs there will obviously need to be measures put in place to support the concerns of the RPing community. I am all for this. But I, as well as most of the APAC community I suspect, are keen to play on a server that gives the kind of game experience The Harbinger can offer but at a much lower ping. I'll admit that at one point I thought these servers were going to die...but thanks to the dedicated players (thank you) who have kept this thread going it looks like we might finally get a resolution to this issue.

A well written well thought out reply... this is exactly my position.
I play mainly on Harb and only log into Master D when it's a rated night... the difference between the populations is sad. And it's not just the queue pops, it's also the way it affects the GTN ... a small economy is not good.
I will be happy to play on a merged APAC server.

Never thought I'd be one of these people, but this is getting too lame. I'm letting my subscription lapse. A solution should have come into play by now.

I don't know, but if anything the more this thread continues with the amount of back and forth whether to merge or not, the more I see it being the excuse BioWare needs to do just that. I hope I am wrong, time will tell!

+1 for Server merge into one big oceanic super server.
Character transfers (inbound @ server merge and then outbound 1-2 months later) optional but severely recommended, whether they are free or paid it should happen.

I have 5 50's on MDN and when my main guildies moved over to 'The Harbinger' I followed a couple of weeks later. I now have 7 50's. It is so much easier to gear up and much more fun to play when you have 2-3 fleets (250 people per fleet) worth of people just sitting around wanting to do stuff. Because of this my most geared toon is now on 'The Harbinger' and it took a fraction of the time to gear him compared to my favourite toon that took months of careful planning and grinding to gear up. Alot of the time my Tank on US just runs guild Ops where he gets no gear because we are gearing up others who have moved servers too.
My Best geared toon on 'The Harbringer' - /played 9 days, 12 hours
My beast geared (and favorite) toon on 'MDN' - /played 12 days, 9 hours

I'm at the point that I've started a marauder on the US just so I can play that AC again and I'm also debating whether to cancel my sub or wait till ROTHC to see if I get motivation back to seriously play the game outside of helping out guildies.
Pol Blex: Just make it worth my while, all right? If I talk, I have to pump up security, make escape plans... all very expensive. Help me out, here.
Me: Well, you don't have to pay those guards I shot...
Pol Blex: Hmm. Not a bad point, actually . We'll, uh, we'll call it even, then.
