Well its quite obvious now that Master D is never going to recover. It is just losing more and more players. Just merge it or shut it down.

Don't be sorry, if it wasnt your guild, it'd be some other guild. It's just the state of the game. I will mostly unsub by end of next week.
Devs can respond to every other thread, update stupid CM stuff, double XP weekends and completely shaft this APAC community in the process.

I'm starting to think that bioware is waiting for 2.0. They think its going to be a suprise and the population will go through the roof( players coming back for the expansion and only 1 server.)

-they can't tell us this because we will rage even more cause clearly we want it now.
-They can't give us a date because that will give away the date of the expansion release.

In their eyes it will make them look better because they are releasing the expansion(yay new content!) and they would have merged servers(yay! Finally! Thanks bioware we love you x2)

This is the only reasonable explanation I can think of and I'm going to stick by it 100% until someone says otherwise

I think the Midian thing was a bit different - the perceived problem with Midian was that every halfway decent player was ending up in Midian to the point that no other guilds could form teams to compete against them. Just off the top of my head, when <Offline>, <Big Stinky> and a couple of other teams started to die off, the refuge players ended up in Midian. Midian was tough enough to compete against before 1.4, but seeing the likes of Pyro and Hit in there just killed me, as these new recruits were pretty much the only players who had a chance of forming a team good enough to stand up against Midian.

I mean I don't blame Midian at all. It's hard not to form friendly relationships with people when you play in PUGs or premades with each other for hours each day for several months all the while on VOIP. And of course you want to be in the same guild with your friends.

To be perfectly honest, at least on the Bastion, this stuff is being perceived as awesome.

The new CM stuff looks freaking awesome. It may be that the pops in APAC are too small to have lots of people with the new gear, but have you seen the new armors (Malek set), or the new speeders or weapons? They are sick and should have been in the game since launch. But it is certainly a sign of hope that the Devs are finally getting their act together. The Gree event is also awesome and a whole lot of fun, and the rewards are sick (the Grey Helix stuff looks amazing).

And for those of you thinking of rerolling:

The Double XP weekend is a great chance to get an alt to 50 in 2 days or to reroll on a new server. It takes roughly 55 hours to get a toon to level 50 normally if you do it right (e.g., do all bonus series, space missions, don't do too much WZs other than to make sure you are comm capped, use XP boosts if possible, spacebar, stay within 3 levels of the quest, skip side quests that make you go out of the way, don't waste time on GTN or crafting). With the Double XP weekend, you could potentially do this in 24 hours. I'm not sure if they will stack the other XP boosters as well, but if they do, it will be interseting to see how fast you can level up.

Lol, this is the whole point of the thread! Who cares about cool new armour if there is no one to show off to.

No, it's an option every player on APAC should consider. Why? Because sooner or later, APAC will go away, or they will have server transfers to or from APAC. This gives APAC players a viable option to do something productive with their times until the above events occur.
