I loved playing this game since beta, but I enjoyed nothing more than playing on local servers. To me it felt as though Bioware genuinely cared about my game experience. However at this point I only play warzones. I would love to continue to do so, but I know I will not find it as enjoyable at higher pings
I am sad to say I will be unsubscribing when apac servers shutdown.

Sorry mate, unless you live in America (only country on the planet) no gaming company gives a **** about you.

Really? You think population isn't important? What good is it having good ping for pvp when there aren't enough people to pvp with in the first place? If I play for hours in the pvp and group finder queue and don't get a pop - then just how important is ping then? Might as well just go and play a single player game if I spend half the time playing solo anyway due to lack of people.

I have signed the survey but only because I think mergina apac servers would be nice. I don't honestly think it's realistic though. I would rather merge with US servers and deal with a bit of lag than to have the pop times for pvp and group finder that I have currently. Sick of playing what is becoming more and more a single player game.
So basically I think merging with US servers is better than leaving things how they are. I'm looking forward to the move. I may just resub before my sub runs out. I've recently let my subscription lapse because I was sick of the lack of action. This might not be the most ideal solution but it's better than nothing at all and what people are proposing just isn't gonna happen.

I hope so. They allowed a choice of west coast US servers after enough people asked for it. If enough people also ask for a choice of east coast and EU servers then I really can't see any reason not to allow that.

Still need an update on when we can transfer.

I even poped another 2 months sub fee to keep playing since news of transfer come in.

If this doesn't happen soon than end of the month is Never Winter time plus FFXIV beta just started. There us plenty of competition for my wallet out there.

Been keeping an eye on Harbinger for Pops and Ping and the more I see the more I want to move now...

Case in point 11:30am Thursday morning AEDT ~ Imp Fleet Dalborra : 40 / Imp Fleet Harbinger : 600...

With ping steady at 170ms I'm really not noticing any difference in play...

Tired of being forced to solo stuff when I want to group cause there isnt the pop to support it ~ merging the Apac servers would not solve this problem.
