It's both a WIN-WIN for all of us.
I think Y'vaine/JcPogi really hits the nail on the head with this comment!

I know Bioware has counter argued they want to give the APAC community the choice of which server they play on but I do think a gamer, regardless of their intentions to RP or PvP would rather be on a well populated server than a server with very low population.

I just hope that F2P brings more players to our server as we all know that Bioware will not merge our servers until after the first feed back meeting of F2P, they haven't given us our 12 character slots.

Better yet,

No one on Master D cares at all if it's not a "PvP" server.

Nobody even ganks, or anything that would effect any form of way that would detriment our game play being on a PVE server.

Alot of Dalborra q's for PVP, and alot of Master Dar Nala PVE.

I find the argument their making under the guise of choice to be counter productive by offering choice of server type
They have made the issue of population worse
The apac region gamer population especially Aus Nz is quite small compared to other regions
And already spread thin across many games and regardless of your preferred server type 3 servers are unnecessary in this region

Additionally, we've seen your concerns about Oceanic server populations and we're going to be evaluating this in the next few days.

We're listening, and I know you've all been patient with us, and for that, I thank you. As soon as I get any update to this, I will let you know here.

Thanks again.
A layperson's casual observation of Imperial fleet populations should really be enough to promote the developers to act... Doesn't really take an in-depth analysis and board meeting to figure this one out.

Thanks for the update Joveth. When you guys conclude your evaluation please don't sit on for months, please report your findings to us. Even if it is something we will not like. You guys tend to sit on things that are negative and then drop them on us at the last moment. Imo this just makes it worse.

Thanks for an official reply at least...

I am borderline on staying with this game (having been with it since pre-release) but I REALLY want to feel like I have a future with it ..

I feel a server merge, or a transfer option to super-servers is really ALL I need to feel like there is a reason to stay.

Please also be aware that *I* consider the 12 slot thing a non issue. Im happy with the existing 8 if it means you do something VERY SOON to address the server population issue.

Hello,

I'm the GM of Praxium, one of the largest guilds in the Imperial side on Gav Daragon. I think I can speak on behalf of my guild when I say that I fully agreed with this thread, something needs to be done about the low servers populations or else the APAC will end up being empty.

I know that Praxium, like most of the larger guilds, has lost many good players due to this issue, people are unsubbing because there is simply nothing to do, when we can barely pull together a group for something like HM Denova, when PVP sometimes only pops a few times a night, and you have to premake groups for your random HMs or else they don't pop. That's not an MMO...

I'm glad to see that this thread has gained the attention of the moderaters, and I am interested to see where this issue goes from here. I'm half expecting they're just gonna give us paid transfers to Dalborra when F2P comes out, which I don't think is an acceptable solution.

And as many people have said before, people on the RP server would generally rather play on a more popular non RP server where of course they can still RP, than stick to a dying RP server just for the sake of it. I'm sure the situation is also similar for the PVP server.

Cheers,
arachan.
