The Harbinger 210 ms

That is less people to play with at a slower speed.

How can anyone on this forum claim that APAC player experience won't be diminished if we are moved to The Harbginger?
In the end it doesnt matter. Ea/bioware have made the decision to merge with NA so BL

So were moving to a server where we will have much greater lag compared to the Americans and where our names will have mostly been taken by them..but we are expected to pay the same subscription fees. Ok so how is that fair to us?

Dear APAC Community,

This is Scorpio,
For those of you who donít know me Iím a Master DaríNala gamer. I also happen to host, commentate and stream SWTOR first and (currently) only eSport tournament Ė The R.A.W (Ranked APAC Warzone) Championships. This tournament has brought out the absolute best in the Master DaríNala community and so myself and my co-host EsKy (Resk/Fresk/Gresk/Dresk/Zersk/SandeeÖseriously *** man) were DEVESTATED when we heard what was happening to our beloved servers.

We have spent the last few days talking about it and our disgust for what Bioware are doing to us has only grown stronger.

Eric Musco says a Unified APAC Server isnít viable. That the numbers donít add up. Iíve told him this is a lie and he is yet to come back and say otherwise. So we would like to prove it.

This isnít going to be easy and it is going to rely on as many people as possible: from Gav Daragon, Dalborra and Master Darínala combined. But the one thing Iíve learnt from R.A.W is that the APAC Community are passionate, loyal and dedicated gamers.

Simply put, on Sunday 7th April 2013 (weekend after Easter) we are going to be streaming, all day, from DALBORRA.

This is an open invitation to EVERY PLAYER WHO WANTS A CONSOLIDATED APAC SERVER.
Before Sunday 7th, create a character on DALBORRA and level it to level 10. With double xp weekend this weekend PLUS double xp on the following Saturday, you can do it in absolutely no time at all. Republic or Imperial or both Ė itís up to you.

From 5:00pm Ė 9:00pm AEDT, the UNIFIED APAC COMMUNITY will be streamed LIVE from Dalborra.

This is your Ė our Ė opportunity to prove that we have the numbers to hold a population on a single server: but it will only work if everyone can come together on this.

I am going to put together a streaming itinerary Ė a list of activities, destinations, faction swaps and communications Ė for the four hour stint. This will include:

- Interviews with Guilds/Guildmasters from ALL Apac Servers
- PvP Tournaments on Outlaws Den
- Warzones with players from different servers
- Flashpoints with players from different servers
- Fleet Parties
- Faction:Wide Planet Treasure Hunts
- Cantina Crawls (it's exactly what you think it is)

I want to work with players/guilds from ALL Apac Servers to create this event and that is why I have created a singular thread on each of the server forums for this. I would like anyone and everyone to add their suggestions, contacts, guild names, player names etc. to these individual threads. I am going to do my best to pull everything together and put together the biggest event these servers have ever seen.

The purpose of this event is to change the current fate of our servers - HOWEVER - it is also an opportunity to enjoy this game as a single community, something almost all of us wanted and have been asking for, for so long.

I would ask everyone who is going to participate in this event to use this signature.

APAC CONSOLIDATED SERVER EVENT
7th April 2013, 5PM AEDT Dalborra - www.zer0ping.com

Typeface Info: White (Bold for first line), link to www.zer0ping.com at end. Centered.

Get the word out to everyone on your server and get involved.
zer0ping is the home of the R.A.W Championships, you can find us on YouTube (zer0pingtv), Twitter (zer0pingtv) and Facebook (zer0ping).

APAC Servers Forever.
Great post, sounds awesome irrespective of the outcome.

Even at its lowest, you have about 70 on fleet, and that only lasts for about an hour.

Now that's just an apples to apples comparison. If you had a merged APAC server, of course the merged may have offered better population at peak time but we will never know.
That significantly more people is less than the number that were active on Dalborra. So they're not getting the population gain they would during prime play times and they're getting slapped with extra latency as a bonus. Thats a piss poor solution.

And our chances of getting local servers for future MMOS are likely slim now too...other game companies will have been watching the fate of Swtor's AUS/PAC server experiment.
