Here is what will happen:

1. Paid server transfers will launch. A large percentage will pay to leave MD and GD to Dalborra.

2. One or two months later, an announcement will be made that MD and GD are closing and all remaining toons will be transferred to Dalborra for free.

3. People who paid for the server transfer will rage

4. People who chose not to leave will rage

I can't help but feel the APAC players have been forsaken. Mr. Hickman should have also worded his announcement more carefully as well, I mean i can't imagine how you guys felt when he said "the servers are rocking!".
How did I feel?

Absolutely astounded by their arrogance, or is it stupidity. Its kinda hard to keep track these days with them. A merger will come, eventually, or the servers will be shutdown due to poor income from the lack of players. In the meantime, how many loyal subscribers will they loose because they continued to ignore us. He said at the end that they are working towards making the game WE want to play.

Well, Mr Hickman, WE want server merges and have so since July last year.

If you missed the free transfer period then there is now no way you can move your character there. Its stuck where you made it.

I agree though that the APAC servers need to be consolidated. As a result of the low population we are now seeing long time APAC players simply creating character on the US server and playing there. The US server during APAC peak time is still busier than any of the APAC severs during APAC peak.

Bioware - Fix it!

A starting planet on a US server during the off time has more than the MDN Fleet during its Prime time.

To quote Mr Hickman, Their servers are rocking for sure, which is Great!.........but only after they were merged.

I think our best option is to re-roll on the PTS using the character copies. At least we get to keep our Legacies!

Right? Right guys?

Of course this was after months of demanding an APAC server.

Merge (transfer) of all 3 servers onto 1 existing or 1 APAC Mega Server (preferred) is still a major request which is still being ignored for 5 MONTHS now
Except for the part where they said "We'll decide what to do with APAC after we've seen how F2P goes.

We never demanded an APAC server. And how long did US cry for a server merge before it was given to them?

Troll unsuccessful, now get out of our thread.

i really don't think there will be a merge in APAC. i think everything will be migrated to the US. just give it time. it's also for the best.

really suggest re-rolling in one of the US servers while you wait for the migration/shutdown.
