Could we please be told what the plan is at this stage?

Whether or not I'm going to lose my gorgeous ping will affect my decision to renew my 6-month subscription.

You will lose the ping that's a fact but I also terminated my 6 month subscription due to other reasons with the lazy support team. Playing on a 180-200 ping isn't that bad and we have been doing that for years with MMO games being based on US servers. Also the community on the big servers like the Harbinger is great and you can get a lot more done not like the low pop oceanic ones.

I don't really understand what the transfer holdup is due to the transfer tool was tested under heavy load and worked very well for the 2.0 stuff.

We won't get an update for a few months more yet, Eric thinks he's dealt with the 'APAC problem' so the thread is back on /ignore. Which is a real shame because out side of this issue I like what he has done as the new community manager.

On the other hand, the longer we're on /ignore, the longer we have decent ping.

Hey, Eric -- look over there! No, out past Community. I think something in, um, the Crew Skills forum really needs your attention for the next few months. Don't worry about us, we'll be fine ...

(Like I said up-thread, given how long it took them to make a decision about what to do, we're looking at somewhere between glacial and astronomical time frames before they actually do anything.)

ok I'm done, off to TSW for me, I'll be back in December when you finally open transfers.....that breaks the entire game for some reason and I somehow end up with all the Harbinger players best high level characters for nothing, I bet something like that happens.....I'm still confused koz we KNOW u can do transfers..........how is it taking this long when u already have the method in place????

HAHAHAHA!!! LMAO

Yes, Please Bioware, stick to your time schedule of doing things a year down the track!!! While the Population sucks, the PING is great. Raiding on the US-West coast at launch thru to server change overs was a nightmare.

That hood issue with Revan's robes defiantly needs a couple of months work. We can do the server merge after that.

No rush Eric, we cool!

I play this game because of the ping, other wise I would have stayed where I was, keep the APAC servers

I propose they shouldn't rush the merge and we should just plan for 2023
