Look at Tor Status and you will see Tor has 10 NA servers left the rest are dead empty servers. Europe has 3 servers left and the rest are dead and empty.
Presently the server status across North America and Euorope is as follows:
1 Medium Server
4 Light Servers
8 Very light Servers
156 Dead Servers
At the current rate of decline the 8 very light servers will all be dead servers within 2 weeks and the light servers will be on the verge of dying. Looking at the 13 light servers left at best ToR has 300k players playing likely less than 200k. But at the current rate of loss Tor will be down to 3 or 4 non dead servers in the next 3-4 weeks and will have less than 100k players.
EA/BW since release has engaged in a campaign of misinformation to make peiople believe the game is doing well and has a lot more subs than it actually has. The facts simply do not bear that out. Approaching server merges their latest attempt at deception is the "Mega Server" scam. They want people to believe there will be mega servers taking the place of all these empty servers. Looking at Tor Status on a daily bas since launch one can quickly see they do not have the population to support such mega servers. Rather EA/Bioware realize that at the current decline the population will only be able to support 3-4 servers at most. But they can save face and keep telling people they are successful with their mega server scam. Plus it gives the fanboys a reason to make post after post telling people how successful Tor is.
With only 13 light servers left it is not arguable that there are mroe than 300k players left. The Titantic is sinking and its almost entirely under water now. There is nothing that can be done for this game at least in the short term. Many games have recovered from bad launches but it takes years. With the SW brand name and a few years of development time it could have a revivial down the road and be a 100-300k sub game. But at least in the short term it is sinking quite fast.
Tor dropped down to 6 NA servers and 3 Euro servers that were not dead prior to when the merges began, Presently there are 10 non dead US servers and 2 servers that are gaining. There are 4 Euro servers not in dead status with 1 close to coming back to life. Totaling14 non dead servers right now with 3 close to being brought back to life.
It is likely when the merges are done there may be around 20 total servers left of which 10 will be be very close to going back to dead status. Generally the trend on what happens on this website is when a server is declining and hits below 1.3 the drop off to hit 1.0 is very swift. The lower it gets the faster the decline. Veru much a momentum things. The more people that jump ship the faster the drop off. But with the merges and the gains it will take awhile for things to settle and for people to percieve any actual momentum one way or the other.
So far with the merges they have now gained in players 3 straight days on Tor Status which is the second time they have posted gains this year and the first gain since they gained 3 straight days when 1.2 came out. Keep in mind these gains reflect a 7 day status so likely the gains are larger than being shown.
With the server merges Tor is now up to 12 NA servers left and 5 Euro servers. While the number of servers is not impressive the gain and health of those servers is unexpectedly high. Thye have now received population gains for 8 straight days. The merged servers are mostly very healthy in terms of pop and not near in danger of going back to dead status. The strength of the rebound looks much better this week than last week and certainly seem to have added some momentum. In terms of toal population its anyones guess what it is for 17 servers. Likely 150k-300k. The merged servers are not empty but they are not near being full either so its unlikely that each server would have close to the 20k (not concurrent) one would expect with a full server or the 5k one would expect with one almost dead. Somewhere likely on the middle.
But if one is a Tor fan the last week should be very encouraging. There is some momentum and the first sustained growth the game has ever had. With 8 consecutive days of gains building a little bigger each day.
The merger is over and now so is the gain in subs. Tor gained players everyday on ToR status for the last 5 weeks. The merger has left ToR with 16 very healthy servers (12 NA and 4 Euro). The daily gains for 5 weeks has left them with servers that should remain healthy for quite awhile. The last two days they have been shown to have lost players and likely that will continue and grow larger larger each day. But given the size of the population of the 16 servers now Tor should be able to sustain a month or two of decline before any of these new servers become in jeopardy of dying.
One footnote when calculating the daily decline on Tor Staus one can no longer rely on the bottom figure caluclating the total decline or gain because the dead servers randomly fluctuate between 1 and 0.95. Technically they cannot be lower than one so its an error of the site. But depnding on the randomness it either shows a gain or decline for the dead servers skewing the total.
