Petition To Save SWTOR Oceanic Servers

oceanic-serversIn case you hadn’t heard, local SWTOR players are about to lose their Australia-based serves. In an attempt to reverse the decision, a petition has been set up to show BioWare / EA the level of commitment from the local SWTOR community to at leas one local merged server.

I for one can totally see the validity in the one server approach – it’ll be hard for BioWare / EA to argue otherwise outside cost saving grounds. Here’s the background on the petition:

Bioware Representative, Eric Musco, has announced that in the near future the Asia-Pacific Servers for Star Wars: The Old Republic will be merged with West Coast US servers. This is after months of the APAC population asking for actions to improve the population on our local servers.

The vast majority of players wish for a merge of the 3 APAC servers into 1 server. Thus achieving the following:
1. Retain our current local latencies
2. Improve the population on the local server
3. Less forced transfer and name changes
4. Similar community atmosphere across the board to what currently exists.

The would no longer be a PVP, PVE and RP-PVE server but the merge would be accepted by most on all of these servers, moreso than forced transfers to US Servers.

So if you feel strongly about the issue, go and sign the petition right here.
