Star Wars: The Old Republic APAC Servers Closing

EA is planning on closing down the Asia/Pacific servers for Star Wars: The Old Republic, BioWare's Star Wars MMORPG. This forum post has word from community manager Eric Musco saying "everyone wants the opportunity to play on higher populated servers." He explains why they decided to merge the three APAC servers with the North American servers, rather than into a single APAC server, saying: "The move to North American servers better delivers on our ultimate goal of providing the best play experience, with the most possible players, long term." Thanks TORWars.

I read this site every morning and evening and I've yet to see anything positive written by you and your roving pack of emo hipsters. Seriously, if you don't like games or gaming in general, why do y'all even come to this site?

Perhaps you should stumble over to the bioshock threads and pay attention?

And looking back at the thread, unless you have another login named nacelle, I wasn't referring to you.

But hey, you read this site every morning and evening, so I'm sure you knew that.


Oh my god!! One game in what, 10 years?!! Someone call Guinness!!

That seems like selective sampling. People say plenty of positive things about games here, just not this one and that's not much of a surprise given how unpopular it is in general.

This is no real surprise. EA's attempts to make this a F2P game were entirely flawed. They didn't seem to understand that you make money with F2P by having people want to play the game. If you put massive restrictions in the way of playing right at the start, people are going to check it out for 5 minutes, get frustrated, and stop playing.

Well said,

This is what happened with me, I came I looked and EA said “We don’t serve your kind here” So I never looked back. Way too many restrictions. When they locked out my UI Bars and locked me out of most of the Ten million Credits I have. I said a hearty Fuck U to EA and never went back.

Somebody get that guy in here from the other night - he doesn't care what we're saying, but he apparently cares enough that he still feels the need to defend it.

/fucking lol

As an Australian player, I rolled on a US server because Aus servers weren't available at go live.

I burned out before they came online but moved my toons when the notification went out they were available (after F2P), logged in for 15 mins, lol'd and logged out. It was pathetic.

Now they get shuffled back and still there is no impetus to play.

In the words of Liz Lemon, "SHUT IT DOWN!"...

I think the writing was on the wall the first time I saw the game. How could they let this happen?

I doubt that Blizzard has been losing anywhere near the numbers that this trainwreck of an MMO is so I doubt your idea would work here Verno.

They should have gone the WoW route with cross-pollenating servers in new ways, Blizzard has avoided closures and mergers despite a decreasing subscriber base by doing so. I guess they would need to change their underlying design too much though and it would be throwing good money after bad.
