I am on Master Dar'Nala and would be in favour of a merge with the Dalborra server, I dont play on the Gav Daragon server so I can't really comment on that or what they would like.

If they do merge the servers together it would be great for a few open world PvP zones, such as the one on Tatooine, where you would be instantly flagged if you walked in.

All the other ideas have been put forward already about transfers off the Oceanic servers after the merger and that sounds like the best idea for the people that are not happy after the merge.

Hey folks! Thank you for all of your suggestions. As I mentioned earlier, we're going to review these and see what we can do. I'll be sure to update when we have anything new. In the meantime, please keep the ideas coming!

Thanks - just remember to keep us updated even it its just to say the situation is still under review. Oh and just in case my suggestion was missed from ages ago:

Quote:
1. Merge all the apac servers into a single PVE server - the reasoning around this has been described many times. Keep the awesome latency, correct prime/op times, guilds, legacies and local community whilst boosting the population

2. Offer FREE transfers FROM US servers TO the apac server - in a bid to get those APAC players that left or rolled on US servers due to the population issues, to come back

3. Offer PAID transfers FROM the apac server TO US servers after a month or so - gives those who still hate Pve or have some other problem with the apac server after some time trying it, an opportunity to get out. Could possibly make this process free for PVP and RP players if that's not too complicated

4. Some form of advertising in Australia/NZ to get more people in before the release of the expansion

nope i dont agree with that move, i play from south asia, ping is terrible i want to play on EU servers where i get 250 ms vs 500~700 ms to aussie town. Just open up transfers and let us decide where we want to go.

Im not fussed too much what you do i just want you to keep our server in Sydney though because i play this game because of the low ping. Most of Australia and New Zealand are very happy to have a server there.

Great but i think you would be in the minority (people from south asia with crap pings, that still play on apac servers that want out). Just opening up transfers might suit you fine but would scatter the rest of the community. There will be a paid transfer option in the future regardless of what happens - use that if u want out. Why you chose to play on an APAC server with a worse ping in the first place is a mystery...
