Last night got a heavy status on the APAC RP Server

Was wondering if it would be a good idea to transfer all the server types to the RP server and see how things turn.....

I know i would transfer if given the choice....

It's not really a heavy pop though.

If you have 400 subs/ftp players that have characters on the server - then that is your limit*

if 201 people are online across all those planets, the server will list as Heavy*

where as you have 200+ people sitting in fleet on NA servers....


*estimates only not precise figures.

Lol, heavy on that server is about 30 ppl on the fleet! Those indicators are based on the total population of that server not the total numbers. So even when it says heavy, there are still more ppl on Dalborra when it is standard.

I think Healthy would be the right term

It's a pretty stupid way of labelling them but anyway, it just goes to show that on that server there is a relatively high ratio of active players to players who rolled on that server then. And there's definitely more than 200 people across all the planets when it's listed as Heavy. Dunno where whoever said that got that figure from. Even so, mildly better pop while retaining our low latency (+community) is still the best solution in my and the majority of everyone else's opinions. Fact is there are plenty of people who would gladly sacrifice the greater population of an NA server just to stay on the servers even as they are now... So the whole "all 3 servers merged still has lower population than an NA server" is kinda moot.

The end-all behind the decision (I believe) is nothing more than not having to maintain a server in Sydney, and give their execs a May Day bonus (or whatever) with the resultant savings. End of story.

While I signed the petition, I know it's not going to do any good. I'm prepared for (and resigned to) the move to NA - I think that at this juncture, it's the only logical course of action left.

Yes, this.

But a tentative target date for transfers would be appreciated at this point. Been awhile since the last yellow post.
