Is this decision final?

If it is please let us know so we can leave for good now instead of wasting more time.
It obviously is otherwise they wouldnt of announced it as such.

It's might as well be written in stone. I only ever seen a major mmorpg reverse their decision once. That was in wow about some battlenet feature that would show your real life name. That was the only time I saw Blizzard reverse their decision, but that effect the entire population of wow.

Err, did you miss the disastrous SimCity launch?

Considering I often mail materials between my characters I would like to have names that I can actually type without having to keep them recorded in a word document open at the same time.

If you're so aware of that then what reason do you have for continuing to harass/basically laugh in the faces of the people who are venting their anger over the way they've been treated? Other than being a sad troll or an EA fanboi who wants to bury his face in some executives crotch for a pat on the head.

Having an opinion is fine, pissing on people when they're kicked and down is another matter.

Objectively, there are no other MMOs that have APAC servers, and I'm sure it's that way for a reason; cost.

It was nice to have these servers and enjoy their benefits. But I also see how unlikely it was that the servers would remain given the overall changes to the game and it's population in the last year.

It sucks to lose something that you love. But let's not lose sight of the great memories and communities that were created thanks to these servers, which no other publisher has had the stones to provide for us, even if we are losing them sooner than we would like.
