**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:

Hi folks! Thanks for raising awareness for this! Rest assured that Oceanic servers will be getting 12 character slots as well. Apologies for the confusion and the wait as we work on making this adjustment. Thank you for your patience!

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.

Master Dar'Nala Concerns

There are many more however they have been lost due to recent forum changes

 

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.

Great post mate!

I will support any changes deemed necessary for us to keep our own local servers, but in the end if there is a choice of playing on a server/s with little or no community I would rather they transferred us to a US based super server, the backbone of any MMO is the aspect of being able to play with others.

Chippy great post mate, i support all of the statements you have pointed out if its to get our APAC community back up to a sustained level so that we can enjoy the game we pay for monthly, then bioware please do your thing and address these issues :)

Overall a merge with pve/rp for one master server instead of 3 split servers would be a great move, i mean do we pay a monthly subscription for "Role playing" or pve only based servers or do we pay to have a high ammount of players to do new content, Warzones and overall actually enjoy the game?

 

For those who complain towards pve/pvp combining you should wake up and think outside of the box for once, we are both lacking numbers on our servers and i'd prefer we have a large community like the us ones then none at all.

 

Will be looking forward to your excuses bioware.

Great post Chippy

100% agreed all ocianic need merging to super server asap before we loss more people. the community idear wont work for ocianics we need marger and super server, and a community with usa and ero servers for pvp and group finder. or else game is doomed to fail!!!!!!!! and we need it done yesterday. also we need the maitance time changed so that it dosent happen at main stream aus times its a joke. and 10 hours maintance is a joke, 4 hour should be max. also pls fix patches on ptr and fully check them to stop all the problem with the current patches, we shouldnt have to test the patches on the main realms so the desingers need to make sure patches are right before deploying them.

and the help ticket need to be done better you have so many rules put ticket under wrong title and say to resumit what a joke, have gm's check every ticket for help.

/Sighned.... whats worse is the fact that we were'nt even offerd a transfer over to American or Euro servers, I think to all of us it has become clear that the only thing they care about here is MONEY, well we are paying costomers too...

Point 2 is not entirely correct, there are many who are not in favour of a server merge. We would prefer to be part of a cluster to enable cross server content.

 

Thank you

Unfortunately cross server content may not ever be an option now that they have mega servers.

 

I'd like the option to move either another AP server or back to the US West servers.

At least for Gav Daragon a marge is not what the majority wants, optional transfers for those who are disgruntled is a good idea, but I'm posting to say not everyone wants this:

 

"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."

 

With 80 active members on Gav Daragon who are not suppoting the merge,

You should actually make a poll for this to gauge how much support it actually has. ANything at this point is mere speculation.
