stop ignoring us

**ok end edit - bioware i eagerly await your reply.**

hello bioware

i have created this post in an effort to consolidate all the recent posts contibuted by the apac/oceanic server communities regarding the current rapid decline in population on master dar'nala (pvp) and gav daragon (rp). It appears the population is ok but not large on the dalborra (pve) server.

i need to make it clear that the apac/oceanic community are extremely grateful for having the opportunity to have servers in our region but through no fault of our own the population has rapidly declined over the past few months.

from my reading of the forums and discussions online with the players, these are the main issues affecting apac servers.

1. The servers master dar'nala and gav daragon are rapidly declining in population and it is affecting the swtor experience by people that play on these servers.

2. Most of the apac/oceanic community are in favour for merging servers together by either consolidating all three servers into a "super server" or allowing us to transfer/merge to a nominated apac server.

3. The apac/oceanic community are upset at the lack of communication from the bioware development team in regards to future plans of our server.

there are many more issues however i believe these are the 3 priority ones that need to be addressed by the bioware development team. Sadly we recently had an extended maintenance period where the apac servers were down for over 8 hours and not even a patch was implemented. The rest of the world got merged together were given "super servers" and even got 4 additional character spots. we got nothing.. Players raised their concerns in this thread.

http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=533706

this was the official reply from joveth gonzalez the online community manager:

The above was a major let down for our community. I am of the opinion most apac/oceanic players are not upset that they couldn't create aditional characters, its the simple fact that we were forgotten about.

developers please take note. The apac community would like to see the following:

1. Communication and an official comment from the developers in response to the issues raised by the apac/oceanic community. Give us an incentitive to keep playing, i don't think patch 1.4 or f2p is going to save our servers. We would like to know something prior to these being implemented, atleast put us out of our misery if the news for us isnt good so players can make informed decisions about their future with the game. Simply saying soon, or we are not sure is not good enough.

2. Do something about the very low populations on master dar'nala and gav daragon. People want to stay on the apac servers and are more than happy to merge to dalborra as they have the strongest population.

here is a list of posts from the apac/oceanic community addressing just some of the issues we want addressed.

i am only just scratching the surface with the above posts. There are lots more, too many to list, these are only the recent ones not to mention the countless amount of threads closed by bioware due to emotions getting in the way

what you can do as an apac/oceanic player

1. Support this thread!

2. Email bioware customer service reminging them you are a paying customer and they are not delevering a product on par with the rest of the world. http://www.swtor.com/support/form

3. Continue to raise the issue in the general forums and support and create new threads in the suggestion forums. http://www.swtor.com/community/forumdisplay.php?f=349

4. Do not give up!

my closing thoughts.

as consumers and gamers we have choice. We choose to suport bioware by paying a subscription fee, however we have the choice to walk away or move onto something else. We have chosen to stick by bioware and support this great game. Bioware, how about you support us?

thanks for your time.

We think that there's been enough time since F2P launched for a business to make an informed decision. Oh wait, there hasn't.

Team member 1: Well, my idea is to fix all the bugs since Beta, put out 2 new planets with class stories taking players to L60, fix all the PvP balancing issues, add dynamics to the game so the worlds do not remain static, listen to all our players requests to enhance gaming enjoyment, well like, you know, other MMOs?

Boss: Fire that guy, worst idea I have ever heard, security, take him out. Anyone else with better ideas?

Droid member 1: More gambling packs.

Boss: Awesome idea, give that droid another raise!

Im just gonna edit that last sentence in your story to make it fit to EA's Model.

Boss: Great Idea. Implement it and fire that droid.

Our populations have been on steady increase for some weeks now, with no declines so far.

Agreed! Now transfer us now!
