We also know that is false data. Watch a current stream on twitch. There are but a handful of medium pop with the rest light.

Think about it for a second. with 100k people having early access and 120 servers exactly, that is 833 people per server. That's if they are all logged in at the same time. Which they are not.

Are you saying that 833 people constitutes a full server? but more then likely half are logged on instead of the full amount, so 417 people is a full server? Nice try
I have no worries about anyone picking my surname. None at all. Why? Because it's not going to be Legolas.

Not to mention it's been said all over the place that THIS is actually false. Soooooo, fail on your part.

Exactly.

Maybe it will be different after tomorrow more than doubles the in-game populations. Or the day after, when it increases again by 50%.

Who knows?

Those are obviously meant for people who are currently playing to judge where the highest populations are. Otherwise the fact that they are full right now and they still have hundreds of thousands of people left to enter the beta would be very very disturbing.

The word from inside is that many servers are unreasonably underpopulated. In fact, lack of population is still preventing pvp matches from running their full length, causing the power leveling bug that most of us are now aware of (Numerous level 30+ players are using this method successfully as we speak) and no one can find a group for a flashpoint. Logging into SWTOR right now feels like logging into a game that's been around so long no one cares enough to roll an alt. Dead. Go watch some livestream. It's brutal.

Watching your friends solo-quest around entirely empty planets while you're sitting down and wondering why exactly everyone at Bioware decided to call it a day at 2:00pm is unpleasant and baffling. For some it might be infuriating.

All day people have been posting screenshots and videos showing:

1) The in-game server list showing mostly Low server populations.
2) The noob zones on most servers not even being packed enough to spawn a second instance (every zone in SWTOR is pop capped and pops multiple instances to deal with it, so the additional irrational idea that staggered access is to prevent 'thousands of players from camping the same spawn' is also completely false).

My take from all that is that the web-based 'server status' is badly broken.

Considering the estimated wait times during the last month of Beta when there where queues on servers were horrifically broken as well (telling you 1.5 days when in reality you got on after 20 minutes), I don't have the greatest faith that whoever codes the estimates for Bioware has any idea what they are doing.
