I have played on Harbringer for 2 years now. I was forced to server transfer off of POT5 (PVP) server because it became a ghost town. 30 minute que times during peak time. After peak time (mornings and late evenings) no que pops at all.
At the time I had a choice. Goto a populated server with que pops and leave my current server. At the time and still is the most populated server TheHarbringer was really the best choice.
The past 3 to 4 weeks on Harbringer has been the longest que waits in the 2 years I have been playing here. And in the past month has been getting slower each week. I play everyday at the same times so I have my finger on the pulse of Harbringer and know it well.

TLDR: Harbringer is heading down the same road as POT5 and has an eroding population. Only difference is this time for me is that when Harbringer dies off (and it is rapidly heading that way) there is no "GO TO" server like there was in the past. Harbinger dies, where do people run to? As I see it, there is nowhere to run anymore. We have reached the end of the rope.

Well, nothing lasts forever. Still, we had a pretty good run. I'll miss you and all the fun we had. Remember that time we did that thing with that guy at that place. LOL. /sigh ... Good times.

TOFN slowly turns into POT5. But there was a times when TOFN was the most popular server and we've got insta pops almost 24/7.

Funny that people keep mentioning The Division as this game that's going to pull players away from SWTOR, and so on... when from everything I've read elsewhere, that game was just as outrageously buggy at launch as SWTOR has ever been.

If they would have put in server to server que system in this game, I would have never left POT5 and would still be there playing. Regardless of why they don't have that system (wrong engine etc etc) it has wrecked this game since launch and will probably be the demise of this game at the end. Amazing they would launch a que based game without a server to server system built in.

Just give it a month assuming they aren't going to delay the new warzones, as a new interest will arrive in it and old players will be returning. Until then I wish you luck on the queue times and not getting pubstomped.

If my server will be dead i will quit this game, i just don't want to transfer, coz its change nothing IMO. ATM we already have 10-15 pops in peak time.

I have been on Harbringer for 2 years and play everyday. I've been here before and after new releases and all that jazz. It has never been this slow at any time prior to now. That's my point. Waiting for another warzone and another chapter has ran its course. The server is headed towards life support and your talking about a new warzone?

Let me enlighten you a little. I have been thru 3 server mergers. I ended up on POT5 when TheFatman was dissolved. There is nothing new here for me. The same things that lead up to my old server dissolving are happening here. Its no rocket science. The server is dying off in the same fashion as the other 3 I played on.

Your response is of no consequence. I don't say that to be rude, but what you just said is meaningless to the post.
