I'm so glad you THINK you know me so well to assume I'm a PVPer. I infact don't PVP, have never done PVP in TOR, and have no intention of ever doing PVP in TOR.

Don't make statements like the "Majority of players are PVPers" if you can't back up said statement with hard evidence to prove it.

Maybe they're right and you're in the minority. Maybe they're wrong. Who cares? Not one player posting here has enough of a clue to say for certain but it's apparent at least a lot PVP full-time, part-time, or whenever they feel like it.

The issue is what TUX said. Content is dragged out. It gives the appearance of plugging stuff in to meet cadence commitments whether it's substantial enough to keep bread and butter content lovers engaged or not. No I'm not complaining about housing or anything else instead of a new Op or PVP content. Rather, about the overall sense of things. It's super-casual time, including casual development.

So...as much as I'd like cross server queues, it does nothing to address the cause of the long queue times.
Cross server wouldn't help much for PvE, but it would work great for PvP. For unranked, anyway. Just need bodies for WZs, no concern about role.

That being stated, I do not actually support the call for this. Too much effort for too little value.

Careful...I didn't say people didn't ask FOR them, I said they weren't playing because of them (because they hadn't existed).

For how long though? Until the bleeding stops? It's a bandaid fix to the issue of diminishing players. Unless they address the reasons people are leaving, it's a temporary fix only.

Cross server cues for both PvP and PvE are a great idea. Unfortunately I doubt EA/Bioware's servers could handle the load, since they couldn't even handle the additional load from simply changing the GF cue from 8 to 16.

EA seems to be allocating less and less financial resources to this game, so I wouldn't expect any improvements that require additional resources.
