East Coast PVE Servers vs West Coast PVe Server

I was just wandering why does the east coast has two pve servers (Shadowlands and Jedi Covenant) while the west coast only has one pve server (Harbinger)? Is it because east coast has a bigger community and they need two pve servers to handle it without lag? Will they ever consider consolidating those two servers into one? Will they ever add a server to the west coast?

Most likely they looked at concurrent login metrics for all available servers when they did the original round of consolidations and decided that there were more people playing on the East Coast servers.

It is very unlikely that the current US server lineup will ever change while the game remains profitable.

East coast has more than double the pop of the west coast. So, technically, they almost need 3 PvE servers.
