maybe just offer FREE transfer to APAC server for EVERYONE(or at least for all APAC player) ?
i mean, who dont want playing with lower ping if they can
but unfortunately only hk/sg/aus/nz player can free transfer to APAC server
please dont think about paid server transfer first ffs
APAC server is dying and need help asap
merge pvp-pve-rp server into one i think not the best solution to solve this problem

The sad point is the ping is high if you are HK/SG/TW on the APAC servers I get a better ping from West Coast Servers. As it is now, 20-30 of us moved from APAC back at 1.2. We are still there and just run in their mornings.

It was never APAC for a start, it was Oceanic. You guys can reach West Coast servers ok.

The pve/rp servers are doing great with f2p influx.

CAUTION: DO NOT LOAD SWTOR UNLESS YOU HAVE AFTER-MARKET COOLING INSTALLED!!

for SG, a lot of us in Dalborra are using tunneling services... we tested the ping to harbinger, and oceanic servers are better tho...

either way I agree that one way is to give free transfers to Oceanic servers, Merge all 3 servers, give free transfers for players within the oceanic servers....

let's see how many posts it will take to nudge bioware into taking action

Are you seriously suggesting that I re roll 9 50's?

Nooooooooooo thank you. Infact, that's a pretty piss poor attitude fullstop. "LOL YOUR SERVER IS **** AND MINES NOT LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL"

They could, you know, do the right thing and give us what the entire community wants.

but yes it is a ridiculous suggestion, please do not ever bring up such a stupid comment ever. It takes a lot of effort to raise even ONE character.

Speak for yourself mate. These servers have died. If you consolidate the 50 people still playing on Gav (total) with the other two it still won't even equal off peak player numbers on a US server. The US lag is only slightly worse than the "Australian" servers from my location. They might be called Oceanic servers but they cover half a hemisphere. Only Aussies get the low lag. Don't try to suggest that people who want to leave should be forced to stay simply because you want the servers merged rather than dissolved. If you want a diluted game experience that's fine by me but I prefer to sell my goods on a well stocked GTN, get warzone and group pops in under 10 seconds and see four instances of the fleet running when I log in to my toons.

I decided that I will stay only if they merge all 3 servers now if they don't I think that's a sign that problems will occur in the future and also this will cause a decrease in the playing experience that every player should be having and being able to enjoy the game there investing in each month. Now with the RP server I wouldn't have a clue on what those guys would think yeah you might see a few people on the forums say they want a merge what about the die hard RP community I can't see them being happy but time will tell and hopefully they take those golden shoes off for a pair of jandals.

Funny how the only people wanting free transfers are the people on the best populated Oceanic servers, because they assume everyone will transfer to their server.

This is NOT AN OPTION. I do not want to split up my characters, my guild, my level 50 legacy or even lose the Master D community. Please stop saying transfers would fix everything, cause they won't. BioWare would then be running 2 servers with virtually nobody left on them and the cost would outweigh the gain.

Re-rolling is also not an option. Once again, level 50 legacy, guild, 6 level 50s. Not gonna happen.

Financially, the best choice for BioWare and the community is a server merge.
