ya, i know how u feel,
this game's pvper die quickly,
pve server is more stable and larger,
but if APAC can have a choice,
then ALL US servers should give that choice TOO,

Really. Strange it had 110+ on Monday night at 730pm Sydney time, plus about another 70 in zone on Ilum when I was doing my Dailies.

Compared to when I was last on Harbinger it had 10 ppl on at the same time 3-4 months ago.

So the minority of dalborra are the people losing their ping when they go to harbinger, in fact the majority of dalborra are americans and other people who would benefit from being on an american because they get better ping.

Just exactly how thick are you?

I played on a US server for a few months before moving to gav. The ping was higher but I never noticed any impact on gameplay. At least no more lag than I've gotten on gav daragon. And of course I played wow for server years where all the servers (including APAC ones) were hosted in the US and had even higher ping. Honestly, I'm not real happy about the situation but ping is not an issue that I consider the least bit important. There are other issues I think are far more important (such as not being able to choose which server we go to). People are making a big deal about it but I think the majority of people worried about it haven't played for any substantial amount of time on a US server.

It won't be the same as WoW's Oceanic servers because at least in those everyone was in the same boat. Competing in PvP especially will at the very least be a total drag for APAC players on NA servers.

But I'm sick of people claiming the game will be "unplayable." Especially when all they have to back it up is the Chicken Littles in this thread.
Seriously you are telling people that they should be happy with a decrease in service because you find the content playable, you have obviously not played from WA, or any decent level of PVE/PvP content that requires a split second reaction, I sit at 300 ms on NA servers and even leveling there is a noticeable difference. regardless of your personal feeling you should not be coming here to tell people to put up with a lower service that no one asked for, and thats being FORCED on to us.

Yep. It seems to be mostly people from dalbora complaining since you guys didn't have the population issues. Pity things are going to get messed up for you guys but it's not really avoidable. What were the other alternatives? Move 2 aussie servers and leave dal alone? Merge all 3 aussie servers together? In either situation you'd be expecting bioware to continue their apac setup for just one server which just isn't going to happen. That would never be financially viable. I honestly couldn't see any other way of fixing the population issues for the other 2 aussie servers. It sucks that you guys get moved when you're happy with your server but if the comments about solidarity with eh apac community are sincere, then you'd realise that the situation with the other apac servers simply isn't acceptable.

As one person pointed out, I just wish bioware were honest in saying it's about cost rather than player experience but that's what it boils down to. The US servers were all merged last year. It was inevitable that we'd follow. I just wish it had happened a lot sooner before our server population issues got as bad as they have.

Funny how everyone is complaining about pings now when we have put up with it for over 7-8 years with other MMOs

1- I have already re rolled on US west server and have gotten to 50 and been doing OPS since around late January this year on Harbinger server, Ping goes from 200 to 500ms and still no DC or any noticeable impact.

I mean sure our old 20 ping was nice and it was noticeable but unless your a PVP person it doesn't effect you.

2- I have already unsubbed(so please spare me the fanboy comments) not because of this issue but I am going to play Neverwinter now.

3- So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish!

Sure a merge between apac servers might be okay but let's face it, the decision has been made.
I highly doubt all the crying and whinging and petitions will change anything.
The Aussie servers are just not worth being kept on to eaware.
It is exactly this attitude that will mean that nothing will get changed! If you want to play on a server with a good ping then you need to fight for it! Not QQ others who are already doing that.
