My guess is this:

2.0 will be more expansive than we thought. It will include not only new content, but features such as SERVER TRANSFERS!!!!

Hopefully next week server transfers will be addressed in general, regarding wanting to join higher population, wanting to join friends, etc.

My first Cargo Bay is barely even full yet, since thats the only issue its getting more likely to release with the expansion because they know its important that everyone enjoys the expansion.

Very unfortunate timing for the maintenance. It's been hard getting our guild doing ops with so many of our members unsubbing recently and this kills our ops for this week.
I've unsubbed myself though my time hasn't run out yet. Still trying to find someone willing to take over as guild leader since I can't do that without being subbed. In the past month I levelled an imp alt from about level 20 through to 50 on gav daragon. Usually played during peak times (evenings and weekends). Always had group finder on the whole time I was playing that character and it only came up twice. Often I'd play for 5-6 hours with never a flashpoint coming up. Both times when it did I was not far off 50. If you can play that long with group finder never coming up, during the busiest times, then it says a lot about the server population. Only did a couple of heroic quests in all that time since most planets I was questing on only ever had a handful of people (again I'm talking peak times).

Even at level 50 it's not much better. I only get flashpoints when I group up with one or 2 guild members first so the group finder is little use. We only use it at all for the commendations. I get more black hole commendations each week from doing heroic space missions. For the most part this has become a single player game where I sometimes chat with people. Seldom enough people to actually play with.

The fact is, we've been hearing that something will be done for about 8 or 9 months now and people are sick of waiting. Never any details. Never anything to give people a reason to expect things will actually change. Which is why so many members of our guild have unsubbed. There's simply no point in paying a subscription for what is for the most part a single player game. Honestly I've spent more time lately playing single player games like farcry 3 and arkham city. At least in those games there's no part of the game that depends on actually having other people to play with.

I'll be re-rolling if it's a mass merger, there is just no way I will continue to play with some people if I can help it. Or just another unsub... but hey who really cares
Meh...

I know this is something we have said to you a couple of times and what you are really looking for are the details. I donít have those for you yet today, but, I will definitely have them for you next week. I am even confident in saying that you will have them earlier in the week as opposed to later.

I know it isnít the details you wanted just yet but we are finalizing them now and you can look for them next week! I really appreciate you all continuing to be patient with us.

Well, this is awesome news. Thanks Eric!

A time-frame for a decision, at last. And after that, hopefully another nice, short time-frame for actually implementing a solution. Whatever your decision is, at least we will be able to plan ahead now.
Two blasters; no waiting!

Word on the street says it will not be the solution we wanted.
