No it wasn't.

First, one of the things we have seen multiple people suggest is that if we are going to merge the APAC servers into the NA West servers that we should give you the option to choose which NA West server you transfer to. Knowing that some APAC players have existing characters and Legacies on some NA West servers already, we agree. When we open free transfers we will allow you one time transfer from your current APAC server to any one of the NA West servers. Note: The actual server merges themselves will still happen based on server type, so once we open transfers make sure you move all of your characters to the server you want before the merge happens.

We have also seen some concerns that we “haven’t considered what NA West’s populations are at offpeak times.” Actually, this is part of the reason we are making the decision to move APAC into NA West. Currently the equivalent NA West servers are seeing higher populations at offpeak times than their APAC counterparts. Meaning that even during offpeak NA times, the APAC players should see an increase in population after the transfers/merges.

Wooo thanks Eric that makes things even better

Lol what.

In a free market, which we all live in, we can choose not to use services of "the man" and not be a doormat....

I think it was, for off-peak time. IMO it's valid concern that APAC server will lost a lot of people over this merge and the player in destination server ( again, in off-peak time ) is not big enough to overcome the loss, so some comparison is nice imo ( read : at off peak time )

I think a lot of people already choose not to use services of "the man" without your advice . However isn't it again your objective that make people stay ?

They aren't worried by a petition. (They've been voted worst company, like a petition would worry them)

Why don't you just enjoy the time you have left, or just leave already? Simple.

Just getting really creeped out by how nasty people are being on the forums towards EA and to other posters. It's becoming quite dirty in here.

The "APAC merger" message would be a lot better received if the posts were:

1) Civil
2) More concise - nobody reads walls of texts
3) Not the same people repeating the same thing
4) More reasoning and less anecdotal "data" about populations which Bioware can easily contradict with their own metrics

The message is being lost in the hate and the spamming of new posts and threads about the same issue.

Some people have made great posts and great ideas about mergers/etc. Those good ideas have been drowned out by this vocal spamming of gibberish and poorly crafted arguments.

Does this announcement mean I can go from Gav Daragon to Harbinger?
'Disappointing' is not a valid criticism.

This is directed to my post how ? And it's not people being "nasty", EA was voted worst company in America for a reason.

1) Civil - can you say all the youtube and troll post from Biodrone is civil ? and there are lot of civil post of people begging EA to change the decision in this thread.
2) More concise - nobody reads walls of texts - really ??
3) Not the same people repeating the same thing - All i can see from Biodrone is the same stuff over and over
4) More reasoning and less anecdotal "data" about populations which Bioware can easily contradict with their own metrics - i would love to see "metric" to backup Bioware argument
I am not at APAC server but i have to say, EA really screw APAC community over and over. They ignored them for a good 6 months and then force them to move again their will with big disadvantage over ping. Can you imagine how many guild/raid are falling apart ? and you say they don't have right to be angry ?

The majority of people idea is "dont force them to move again their will"

Hi all - Don't forget to spread the word on our Consolidated Server Event.

For those who don't know, there is a thread on each Server Forum explaining:
Gav Daragon: http://www.swtor.com/community/showt...36#post6064836
Dalborra: http://www.swtor.com/community/showt...17#post6064817
Master Dar'Nala: http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=616223

Open Invitation for all APAC players to re-roll characters on Dalborra. On 7th April we will stream for 4 hours, showing what a Consolidated APAC Server would look like with population, community events etc.

Should be a great event, lots of fun things being planned. Please post in the server forums and spread the word in-game!!!
