okay ... so the expansion has been rolled out and folks are busy chewing thru 5 new levels, a new planet and new side quests ... an E.T.A on the transfer from the Oceanic to the N.A. servers for those of us having to deal with low pop. issues on a daily basis right about now will be just swell and well

I play on the least populated server in the game and I along with plenty of others feel it's more playable than a US server.

The thing is we 've been playing even thoe the population was so low..... it goes to show how much we actually enjoy this game. A merger of one APAC server is ideal in my opinion.

Merge to one server and see how the server can be improved from community feed back.

Actually Harbinger is regularly showing full and crashing because it has the highest load and they want most of us dumped on it. Ping aside, for PVE, the West coast mega server is not even better than ours for West coast US players.

I do hope BW has the common sense to upgrade the server capacity before the merger, the last week alone has been pretty crapy with all the peeps coming back for 2.0

As an Australian this whole thing makes me sick.

First they delay the launch and now they kill off our servers.

On the support page with the numbers there isn't even a number for our part of the world, let alone Australia.
I have a golden wii stick, what do you have?

UNSUBBED FROM GAME IN PROTEST OVER THE APAC SERVERS CLOSURE!

I like many others agree with you. This not what is best for us, it is what suits BW. If you have not already sign the petition, it is still slowly getting more sigs, upto 920 now.

No offense to anybody, but why do some think it's possible to merge all the APAC servers when Australian internet infrastructure is inferior to even hold up a full load (to US standards) for a single server? Heck, they're at burst when even hosting 64/64 Battlefield 3 servers. This isn't about server play types, we need to face the fact that Australia lacks the technology, and that this is not BW's fault.

Nice reasoning, the servers are fine stability wise. It's about having the population condensed into 1 server so there are more ppl to play with.

Oh and it's now 922 signatures on the petition.
