So what going on BW? I've been checking in with the dev tracker every day for an answer after your evaluation of APAC server population but still nothing. What are you using, an abacus?

If you are waiting for F2P just man up and say so, atleast we'll know!

Oh and btw.....

Bump!

Heck, I would settle for some of the bullcrap stuff they used to give us about them looking into it. At this point, anything would be nice, Answers Preferable.

They must be truly confident about the influx of new players that will come with F2P, because they're screwing many oceanic players over this and will lose them completely.

Well I don't think the f2p players will stay long in the pvp Apac server at the current rate
They will be met with a empty server with a few very angry players left hardly a good promotion for the game
I think they need to sort these servers out before f2p So that new players joining the Apac community can actually experience the game and don't end up in the situation the current paying customers have suffered for months

This is where the whole concept of APAC players not mattering as much as US ones. I'm sure in their minds, losing the APAC players is offsetted by the new players they're expecting with F2P, mind you that potentially majority of those people won't be subscribing like we are, not sure why they're ignoring us based on this observation..

I'd say this is a potentially 'productive' thread no?

I have supported this thread. Lets hope it comes into the light and Bioware actually responds!

Indeed and I have made a post there. I encourage all to do the same.

From my observations the problems are more to do with weekdays. Weekends, on Dalborra at least, seem to have reasonable population levels on both Empire and Republic sides. Sort of.

In any case I'm hoping they decide to merge Oceanic rather than close it down altogether. While things are much faster on the US servers than they were before the massive upgrade and merger, I'd still prefer a latency of 40 over 2-300 (before the upgrade I used to average around 400 on The Harbinger). That's what you get when you live at the arse end of Adelaide in an area serviced by an exchange that wont allow anything faster than ADSL-1. In any case I'm just one person and so will have to put up with whatever decision Bioware makes based upon the opinion of the majority -- although it would be nice if they gave us the chance to vote on the outcome.
