I consider myself a reasonable person with realistic expectations and a balanced perspective. But this is not acceptable customer communication or serivce. If I ignored my clients like this, I wouldn't have a business and my reputation would be destroyed. Im praying that Elder scrolls provide a better alternative this year, I really hope they nail that game as I want a better option than this.

I have given Bioware more than enough time to address these problems and I will abandon all the work and effort I have gone through in developing and gearing all my characters in a heartbeat when that better option comes along, luckily for you all the alternatives IMO are terrible at the moment, but that will change and no amount of cartel coins, or aesthetically appealing distractions will keep me playing this sad excuse for an MMORPG.

Gamer's have very long memories, the way we have been treated will not be forgotten

I have no toons on MDN, but I have a 50 sorceress on Gav Daragon, and a 40-something sage on Dalborra. The sage can get a Warzone pop within five minutes during 'peak' hours, while I can log in my Imperial and...sit there. For a long time. Upwards of an hour. At peak time. No warzones.

Level might have something to do with it, but Gav Daragon consistently has one Fleet instance with maybe 20 to 25 people, whereas Dalborra easily has four times that many people (although also only one instance). I've pretty much given up on my sorceress. Gav Daragon is dying, and from what I can pick apart, MDN is even worse - I'm glad I made that sage when I did. But Dalborra will go the same direction, I'm sure, because EAWare doesn't seem to be overly concerned with the APAC servers in any fashion.

Eh think they would just prefer to cop flack about server population issues from us rather than from the US and EU players. I remember how bad the forums were back before they had their merges. In the end they make more money off them than us. Heaven forbid we get a superserver too and show them up.

I too have lost a lot of faith in bioware and how they treat us, but theres no star wars game like this....

I just dont see why they havnt acted already. Ther's really no excuse. F2P, i can kinda accept, but the server pop has been low for ages, not to mention f2p has been out for awhile now. what;'s the deal bioware? Expansions on PTS, but our servers are still left behind.

Te excuse that bioware will provide and i mean excuse not reason, will never rectify my faith and respect for bioware. The guild im in has alreayd lost valuable friends and players, simply beucase bioware is leaving us behind. I dont know how long i can keep going like this. And like the friends ive made in this game and many other people on these servers, i will eventually leave.

Priority wise, feels like APACs on the bottom of the list.

According to your guys on here you "definitely haven't forgotten about us". Could you please do something soon before we forget about you.
Unsubbed! Voting against the APAC server closures - with my wallet.

Thats a nice site. Check out the population of APAC servers at Mar, Apr and May of 2012 though. They were basically sitting on heavy to very heavy all the time.

And the population were all subscribers not f2p back then too.

Just created a thread but I want to add what I said here...

Jagex puts bioware to shame

On the 20th of November Jagex brought out the new update Evolution of Combat. After a few weeks the players didn't like it, they liked the old one better so after some forum posts and complaints Jagex decided to create a poll to see if there were enough people then they would release a 2007 version of runescape depending on the amount of people who vote for the new server. 2 weeks later they closed the polls and it was decided that the new(old) server will be released. People expected it to be release at the end of march but instead was release about 1or2 weeks later on the 22nd of February. Time it took from release date(not from the date the issue was brought up) was 3months

On the 20th of September Chippy create the 'APAC server concerns' thread (http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=534412) it is by far the biggest thread on the swtor forums had the most views and most replies and til this day the closest you have gotten to a result is asking us for our opinions and dragged us on. It's just *********** sad that a game like runescape can work out better than swtor with its customers. You can really tell that it doesn't matter how **** a game is, the success comes from good management (if you haven't realized yet - I hate runescape with a passion but it is a very successful game.

It has been 5months now and I hope you're not sitting in your office wondering why your game sucks... Nope the cartel market didn't fix it, the ****** pvp in ilum didn't fix it and let's see how this new planet goes - yeah you got extra $$ in your pocket from it but that won't keep us playing.

THE GAME IS GOOD! IT'S JUST THE PEOPLE RUNNING IT THAT MAKES IT BAD
Mum: you need to get a life.
Me: but I've already got 10!
