Not too far off 100 pages guys, come on we can get there!

Apparently responding to our concerns is a low priority o,0. Great stuff.

Hey all,

This Saturday (3rd November) I'll be streaming on Twitch, to show just how difficult it is to play the game on the Asia Pacific servers, compared to the American servers.

I'll be creating Republic characters, one on Master Dar'Nala, the other on the American PvP Server The Bastion - and playing them both for 9 hours. The characters will only be leveled through Warzones, with no Legacy perks or upgrades.

Due to the time difference, both characters will be leveled on the same day, at the same local time of 2pm-11pm.

APAC Server Stream:
2pm-11pm AEDT, Saturday 3rd November
(8pm Friday - 5am PST Saturday 3rd November)

American Server Stream:
2pm-11pm PST, Saturday 3rd November
(8am-5pm AEDT, Sunday 4th November)

Still working out the finer details of everything, but the times are definite. We're sure to at least get some interesting stats out of it. I know pre-50 is getting more frequent pops than 50, but even so the population is still terribad and bound to have an effect. I have a 50 character on The Bastion and may do a similar experiment to show the difference in 50 pops.

APAC is not just Australia. Thought you knew that.

Which is probably the reason why they don't have paid server transfers in the initial offering.
We shouldn't have to pay to fix a problem like low server pop.
I won't be abused like that.

That's debatable. It may not be just Australia, but it's mostly Australia. The Pings from SIngapore and HK are worse than to the US servers. I'm playing from Japan, and I don't often meet any non Aussies on the server.
I'd say 90% Australian/those living in Australia on the servers.

Please spread this out there because it seems like EAWare does NOT care!

I just got off the phone with customer support requesting some sort of transfer to a high pop server the Representative did inform me he was actually a player on the server Master D aswell and has had many calls regarding this issue and we should expect some sort of update in the coming week, tho i was not able to get an xfer to another server he said to make an ingame ticket and try my luck heh but this issue is getting looked at and reviewed by the high up department.

Its funny he mentioned this thread cause i acted like ive never read and heard about this thread yet and he was the one telling me about it and that is it indeed getting looked into, so just because they aren't posting here that doesn't mean they aren't reading everything
