First, one of the things we have seen multiple people suggest is that if we are going to merge the APAC servers into the NA West servers that we should give you the option to choose which NA West server you transfer to. Knowing that some APAC players have existing characters and Legacies on some NA West servers already, we agree. When we open free transfers we will allow you one time transfer from your current APAC server to any one of the NA West servers. Note: The actual server merges themselves will still happen based on server type, so once we open transfers make sure you move all of your characters to the server you want before the merge happens.

We have also seen some concerns that we “haven’t considered what NA West’s populations are at offpeak times.” Actually, this is part of the reason we are making the decision to move APAC into NA West. Currently the equivalent NA West servers are seeing higher populations at offpeak times than their APAC counterparts. Meaning that even during offpeak NA times, the APAC players should see an increase in population after the transfers/merges.

If they don't let up and we have to merge US servers, I feel we should all merge with Dalborra's destination server The Harbinger, this way we will be able to have at least the peak time numbers we would get from merging with Dalborra only.

These are not permanent and are subject to change at any time.

HARBINGER GUILDS SO FAR:

<Core>
<BOSS>
<Nighmare Council>
<Pandemic>

Possibly more:

You do realise no matter which server you go to we'll have a greater number. There's already upwards of 200 people on the fleet during our late night peak times (12pm onwards sydney time) and before that there's 300 or more.

I'm undecided where I'll go. I think Bastion as there's no good pub pvp guilds on Harbs and I don't think enough of us will go there to make one.

Harbringer is great. I rerolled there.
Busy all the time. Plenty of group and PVP pops.

Looking forward to getting my MDN chars over to there soon!

It is an interesting question... I suppose it depends how much people love both world pvp, and any WZ differences between a PvE and PvP server.

Will definitely require more consideration, but the appeal of APAC people consolidating to a single server is certainly there...

I remember several occasions of being on the bastion out of their prime time and having 1 instance of 80 on the imp fleet, i can't say that going from a low server pop to average server pop (our peak and after peek times) just to maintain play styles is worth it. Not to mention will will probably miss all community events that are during US peak time. Plus half the APAC community wont be there and I refuse to say "Merica Baby!" on the regular.

Go to harbinger tbh guys, there are two good pub guilds there but they dont have as many people to pull from, and theres just less pubs in general. Be nice to actually feel some opposition when we play ya know?

As I stated earlier, these numbers are much higher now, especially on harbs. 200 - 300 people.

As alot of BOSS are already on Harbinger and I have 50s there and my son plays there it's an easy answer for me.
I think, if you want to look at it pessimistically, that if it SWTOR ever sucked so bad that only one server was viable...the Harbinger will be the ulitmate destination server for everyone...so in advance of probable sucking ...Harb, the PvP is as good and the GTN is better.
