Rolled a new toon last night on Harbringer, funnily enough my latency has dropped from 340 to 220 so that was nice... still went up in combat, my instants still didn't fire immediately.
In the first 5 mins there was two gold sellers, and two people we telling him he charged to much, foul chat, and a dude following me around with dueling requests, and then another waiting until I got in combat and then running in to take my quest items... less than impressed.

Oh and the time that I normally play there was 40 people in fleet.

Whilst I admit the experience WASN'T ALL bad it was enough to reinforce that I really don't want to move.
The one thing that I am dreading above all else is the community, we have a good one on Dalborra with only a few exceptions, if last night was anything to go by it doesn't exist on Harbringer... I will try again tonight.

I have toons on the Harbinger also and I have to agree with you, as my experiences when I'm on there are negative 50%+ of the time. Where this is due to a higher percentage of annoying ppl or that the pop is that big you come across them more often, I can't say. But what I can say for sure is I don't want to be forced to play there.

Actual new content after waiting 7 months.
Well, the vast majority of the APAC community disagreed with you and unsubbed from the game between 1.2 and 1.4

That was mostly due to the lack of new content and the removal of Ilum world pvp. Some ppl left the pop shrank which caused more to leave and it just snowballed from there. It was also true for the game in general not just the APAC servers, hence the server merges for the US and EU.

Have a look at this Harbinger Server thread... they have been having crashes and problems since the 10th April...

http://www.swtor.com/community/showt...42#post6140542

I have posted on the thread to let those people on Harbinger about our APAC forced mergers with them < in case they didn't know >

Imagine how bad the Harbinger server will be if 1000+ accounts were merged with it??

Anyway I have asked them to sign our petition and voice any of their concerns to Bio in their thread or to start another. Maybe, just maybe, Bio will start to listen if the north Americans start to rally against the merge.

Petition now over 900... way to go guys

If you haven't already, please sign the petition to save our APAC server

Don't play on Harbringer then - go to Bastion or Bergen. Anyone who had spent more than 1 hour on Harbringer would have figured out the server is unstable and the general chats are toxic and there is an obnoxious amount of trolls, griefers and ninjas everywhere. I'm done promoting Bastion as the alternative, but you all are in for a culture shock when you roll Harbringer.

Except that The Bastion is PvP and Begeren Colony is RP.

The Harbinger will be the only PvE 'choice' that we have if those of us on Dalborra want to play on the same style of server that we are currently on.

I hope that the stories of just how unstable The Harbinger is, are just that - stories. Otherwise our forced migration will be really disappointing for all of us - both those wanting the transfer and those not wanting it. We will be pretty miffed if we cant log on half the time.

It's been said by others before - but I'd be willing to pay an extra $5 a month to have a local combined server with stability, a standard population size, good ping, and a with a good community that has very few stalkers and trolls.
