What a complete joke. You guys (read: Bioware) waited 7 months to tell us

So how about you tell us what it would have looked like 7 MONTHS AGO WHEN WE FIRST RAISED THE ISSUE? But no you guys sat on your arses for 7 months and let the servers deteriorate to their current state.

Sending the APAC community to 3 separate NA servers DOES NOT SOLVE ANYTHING. The simple fact is the peak time at which the APAC community plays is what constitutes the quietest time of the day for the NA servers. So all you'll end up with is continuing complaints about long ques... But it seams as though you guys couldn't care less about the consequences of what you are doing as demonstrated by the 7 month track record of completely disregarding the APAC community.

The only long queues i've had was for group finder, but I play with my wife..so we're always a group of 2 and can complete most things. PVP queues on Dalbora, I think the longest I had to wait was 5 minutes for a lvl 50 WZ.

I hope BioWare isn't stubborn enough to simply end this dialogue and follow their course to self-destruction. It is only through communication and mutual course correction that we can get through unscathed.

210 ms latency.. i'm guessing this is best case scenario... looks like raids will be cancelled again as raid members get trapped in a spiralling latency nightmare...

You say Aussie server merge would deny players their choice of RP PVP or PVE play style.. hmm... from my understanding you can pvp on any server, you can choose to role play on any server.. so what exactly are they losing..?

I really wish people would try the other server out before posting opinion paraded as fact like this. I understand people are upset, in some respects they have more than a right to be. But statements like this simply aren't true.

I play from Melbourne, and even at 11pm Melb time on weekdays, i still get GF que pops, although it does get quieter around then. But pops still happen. GF pops all the time anytime during the weekend. WZ's pops are never ending, anytime, day or night, any day of the week. That is better than any aussie server just there, not even mentioning it has a thriving RWZ community compared to the APAC servers too.

No complaints about ques at all, maybe you should try it out yourself.

Edit: P.S.: <The Elite> are recruiting on the Bastion repub side, come join us for double xp weekends and see for yourself guys!!

Just checked the fleet populations on The Bastion (96 characters) and Dalborra (95 characters). I know it's not the greatest metric, but it seems that merging Master Dar'Nala to the US server is not really any more beneficial population wise. AND we lose out awesome ping.

Unsubbed.

Bioware. Reconsider this and I'll reconsider pursuing a refund.
