Which isnt really that big of an improvement.
1 person was posting that. I know of many other GD players that have been hoping for a server merge. Or the option to transfer to Dalborra. Having spent cartel coins made simply rerolling a terrible option as we would've then simply thrown our money away. Instead this arse-backwards "solution" (and I use the term loosely) from EA/Bioware results in us having thrown away our money anyway.

.

Now the first thing I did when I heard about this was log onto the Harbinger and try to get my names. I got all my Grall* names below but was unable to get any of the others. I advised all my Guildies to do the same of which most could get 1 or 2 but often not their primary name. I understand that when the merger actually happens we may still get to keep some of the names and we will lose some depending on a number of factors.

Vindication/Retribution still exists? Interesting.

This entire subject should be a wake up call for all within the game. It's membership dwindles. It's a matter of time before they start consolidating NA servers as well. To think of the game not being here at all saddens me. It would be missed. And this comment coming from a 'normal' person, writing a 'normal' opinion, without benefit of an internet enhanced, inflated IQ claim. Oh woe is me...... ...chuckles...

This should be a worry for the entire game. We are apparently being merged with some of the most popular US servers so this indicates to me that populations are not improving across the board and could spell disaster.

The real reason their shutting down APAC is because its not profitable for EA and has nothing to do with player experience. Why could we choose which APAC server to go to from us launch but can't choose now. No wonder the EA CEO just quit recently because EA only care about money over customer service just look at the horrible simcity launch. I hope people will find a game that they get treated like humans not money bags and I encourage APAC player's to unsubscribe before it's to late.

It does suck the oceanic servers are going down
I only just recently subbed after a year break and missed the character transfer window and continued to play on the us server the Bastion the population is fine for most times of the night for me (Aussie) and pvp queues are regular
Its plain to see thats its a profit margin which is the decider, but might as well make the most out of a worst case scenario and hope to see more Oceanics around
