Already Eric Musco said they're 'working on the tech.' In other words, they don't have it.

EULA Terms have been posted; things are imposed 30 days after announcement or later. Bioware could argue they haven't even announced it yet if they don't meet the deadline, given they're only announcement is in a forum. Not hugely official yet. Knowing Bioware's track record, though, it could be tomorrow, or, more likely, within a month or a few months.
The 30 days only applies to force transfers. BW can allow voluntary transfers at any time.

719 sigs, that's great but keep them coming. If every1 who has sign can get atleast 1 person more to sign we will be in even better shape. I'm sure there are ppl out there who don't know about this yet. Let make sure they do!

From memory, the jump across the Pacific from the east coast of Australia to the US is around 150ms, so if you've got 175ms that's really good in Australia. From WA (where I am) there's another approx 50ms to get from the west coast to east coast. I'm not sure what it is for NZ to the US, but I'd guess it would be around 100ms. That's before we add in the jumps between ISPs on either side.

Not much we can do about that Pacific ocean bit, since there's only one route, other than build our own high speed gaming link through the centre of the Earth. At that point it would probably be cheaper to buy EA and make them keep the APAC servers.

Is there any updated info on name collisions? I see the person on Harbinger with my name is only L22, while I am L50 with 40 days of game time. It would be insane if I have to lose my name to that person.

I don't like using alt codes, for one they can confuse, and for two if you cant get a name without using them why steal someone elses...

They beat you to it, be more creative, and yes I stand to loose some of mine

Just IMO!

Well,
1) if you've been playing with the name since launch, or since the launch of APAC servers, maybe they didn't actually beat you to the name. And if you've been playing under that name for so long, maybe you're attached to it, your guildies all know you by it, and so on.

2) Why can't the galaxy have two people named John? Even if one of them, for silly software reasons, has to be spelled Jöhn?

3) I f you don't like alt-codes, by all means avoid and eschew them. But they are a good solution for people who want to keep a name that they may have put a bit of thought into, and want to preserve, even as we are all sent to the Colonies (well, those of us who roleplay are being sent to a Colony, anyhow ... )
