My server is dead

I had such hopes for this game. I am the unfortunate owner of a collectors edition.

I came back to this game after a years .. hiatus .. vacation .. and it's dead. Dead silence is what I see. Empty "worlds", everyone already knew the zones were small, so I shouldn't be surprised? Well, the population isn't there?

Will this collectors edition BIG box be valuable one day? Electronic Arts games don't show much promise. I'm not buying from them again. I feel as though I should have sold it when it was popular. Electronic Arts seems to be a garbage publisher these days?

So, Anyways, is there a good server to play on that isn't dead?

    http://www.swtor.com/community/forumdisplay.php?f=309 ...better place to ask perhaps? I can tell just by looking here what servers are more active than others. I doubt you will get enough of a concensus here to actually forumulate any fact.

    Good grief don't send anyone to the official forums, not for this game. Good game, terrible forums. Better to let them get pummeled here.

    As for servers being down/offline, they have been having troubles with that lately. I myself think it will pass once holiday period is really over next week.

    He is looking for an active server to transfer to, you don't think going to the server forums of the actual game would be a better indicator than a site where 2 or 3 people might reply. Hell I can tell you which servers are active just by looking at the forums, no need to ask the question.

    Ironically you did not even attempt to answer his question lol.

    Edit: Either way the site dude above me just posted is all he needed.

    Hmm you would think if this was a real post he would have put what server he is on.  This is clearly nothing more than an attempt to bash a video game he doesn't probably play and bash a dev he doesn't like.

    And as clear as your flaming attempt.  

     

    So so if you were going to QQ about a server you were on would you not state which server that was?  Or would you just QQ about how bad the DEVS are?

    Not to get sidetracked from the OPs question, but I don't think it's the game. I was playing quite a bit before WoD came out and the population and game are very healthy! http://www.polygon.com/2014/7/20/5920815/list-of-mmos-by-revenue-warcraft-old-republic

    Yes he did. He did what I did not remember to do. I myself could never discern what servers are busy just from the forums so that idea did not cross my mind (nor would I trust any forums to guide me in such a manner).

    Hopeful he finds the server he is looking for.

    Harbinger is by far the most populous server. It has a high pop 24/7 as that is where all the Oceanic players are. I see people everywhere on all planets. However all the European servers are practically dead and I suspect most of their population now play on the NA servers.

    Bioware have stated that server populations and queue times for group content will be a priority for 2015 and they will be implementing changes to address it. What that means is a hot topic of discussion on the swtor  forums, with most believing it will be either more server merges, cross server queues or a mega-server.

    I play on an EU server and its packed...how about stop spreading bullshit. That goes for everyone, OP included.

    Perhaps if the OP posted which server he was on we'd understand his circumstances a little better, though i suspect the reason he has not, is because he's afraid of being contradicted. For the record i only play on the EU servers, in particular Red Eclipse and The Progenitor, both of which are very active, even Freedon Nadd the PVP server is fairly active, although i can't say what the status is of the German and French servers, though i suspect the OP is not talking about any of those anyway. So if the OP is at all wishing to avoid being named a Troll, perhaps he should identify this mysterious and empty server he is on. I wouldn't hold my breath though on that one, image

    Yeah, I suspect EU servers population is not that healthy. Acording to TOR Status, it's clear that are much more activity on the US servers. I play on The Progenitor (EU) and things are a bit slow lately. Maybe Ebon Hawke is different, I've never tried to play on the US servers, don't real know if the ping is a issue or not.

    I wouldn't be so quick to blame 'SWG' groupies, as a SWG vet i seem to end up defending the game despite its 'cartoony' graphics, well there are worse examples in all fairness, and as a PVE storyline based  MMORPG SW;TOR does pretty well. image

    Guy I've spoken to in England says he gets around 120ms to the NA servers east coast. Not brilliant but still much better than we poor Aussies who have to deal with 250ms ping.

    It's a testimony to how good this game is that I can still compete in pvp with that latency.

  • BarCrowBarCrow Member UncommonPosts: 2,195
    When I play I play on one of  two servers. Both usually have more than enough population with which to utilize/socialize. Of the two...The Ebon Hawk server seems busy most of the time. The Shadowlands also seems fine but seems to have dropped a bit as of late.
  • RivolRivol Member UncommonPosts: 79

    We used to use the fleets (both republic and imp) as a guide to see how busy and populated a server is but this is no longer a true reflection of server status. Since the launch of SoR a huge portion of the player base are now on the new planets, the other night there was 9 instances on Yavin4 alone.

    Add to that strongholds and guildships the player base is more spread out than before. Me personally I use pvp warzone pops as a guide to population health. On Harbinger I never have to wait more than 3-4 minutes for a wz to pop in any level bracket, and I normally play in non peak times.

    Troll thread - they closed most servers long long ago in a galaxy far far away.

     

    There's a reason why he didn't give the name of his server.

    120MS is nothing right now considering the server side lag the game is seeing these days.

    It's so bad, I've been seeing a lot of mobs "adjusting " their position right in the middle of combat. Pisses me off when I stealth in behind on my Op for a Back stab opener only to find I was not really behind the mob at all. and had already taken a hit or 2.

     

    Heh, in that regard it sure as hell has been feeling a lot like the old SWG.

  • pantaropantaro Member RarePosts: 515

    even if the game got shut down tommorow i still wouldn't regret my collectors edition....so yea....still wondering what server this person is on. also wondering if they are legit considering the context of their post.....

     

    but anyway,if your on a PVP or RP server not surprised,even less surprised if your on one of those on the EU side.speculation is megaservers may be coming. http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?p=7879116#edit7879116
