People need to stop comparing swtor to wow, I have played wow at 400-600ms and it was more playable then tor at 200-300ms. Tor is better looking and requires a lot more resources to run well and the graphic lag is a problem.

The main problems for myself is more about losing my characters and community and lag only comes in when comparing apac players to American. Let us keep a server dedicated to apac area but that does not mean it has to be hosted here, if its Australians and the like playing with each other, we all get the lag and its fair game rather than us having 300ms playing against an American with 55ms Max all the time. It worked for wow and because it won't be hosted in a us, bioware need not spend extra cash AND we can keep our community.

Just a thought

I agree that they should have merged APAC servers at the time they merged all the US servers. Would have been farm morelikely to ve a viable option then. I think that window's been missed now though. Far too many players have unsubbed because they were sick of waiting. That might not be so apparent on dalborra but the combined population of all three servers is far lower than it would have been if they'd done it 6 months ago when they did the US ones.

Most of them would probably come back if they merged the servers as most said that in their post in this thread where as merging with the NA servers just garantes that they wont come back

So many would come back if they merged servers.

I'd like to thank all the players for their support on this issue, especially those that are not affected by this decision, but they see the injustice and are willing to help.

Thanks from APAC!

I'm shocked. I'd actually prefer nothing changes than the option BioWare chose.

The Australian region in particular have had terrible treatment in the course of this game. We had to import if we wanted to play in the first few months after launch. We were blocked from buying on Origin. Getting local servers was a massive redeeming factor, someone which was hugely appreciated - even though BioWare failed to advertise the game in our country (barely any of my Star Wars loving friends have even heard of the game). But now it seems we'll lose these servers, and along with them we'll likely lose our identity again.

Very sad. I thought SWTOR was in a time of going up, not down...

I would gladly resub and spend my usual $100 a month on Cartel Coins if the three servers were merged into a Super APAC server.
ATM I stay unsubbed and uninstalled.
I can't even play WOW atm due to being devastated by this announcement regarding APAC servers.
It's great to see nearly 700 people signed the petition.
