I don't think I've posted in this thread before but my friend & I are another two players on Master Dal'Nara who are wishing there was a healthier population.

Losing world PvP would be pretty lame but I still think it's for the best that the Oceanic servers all get merged.

We have just been rolling alts since there's not very many people to play with at 50, but between the two of us we have a level 50 of most classes now. An endgame would be nice!

Our server is still far from "Rock and/or Rolling."

Just letting Bioware/EA know that the APAC region still exists. The planet is round and we haven't slid off the edge of the world into some void of unknown.

Also, great patch... Love all the new **** to buy.... But what good is it if I can't get a flashpoint, op or warzone?

Is it possible that our APAC servers are located in the wrong place. If I'm correct, they are located in either Sydney or Melbourne. And if I'm also correct, the leases for the servers could be up if they're on a 12 month contract. Why not have them relocated to the top end of Australia or even an off shore area so we can accomodate the people from ASIA.

Tell me if this is possible? Yes we may all gain a little ping, maybe people from the west will lose some, who knows.

Would be too little too late for most of us, as without transfers we would not want to leave or 4+ 50's on a west coast server. I can not speak for everyone in northern part of asia, but when APAC servers opened I tested the ping and it was way too high compared to west and even east coast servers and never requested my toons for be transfered during the offered time.

I think most internet connection (fibre optics and otherwise) are transmitted around the world using submarine cables, and if you look at the map here you will notice that there are only a few entry points from outside into Australia, and Sydney is one of them.

Having the servers in northern Australia may actually worsen the connection for us. Perhaps offshore area would be better, but I doubt Bioware/Ea would want to reinvest in relocating their servers just for us 'few' non-Oceanic people.

Edit: Oh, and bumpity bumpity bump. Still awaiting your good reply dear Bioware.
