Legions of Lettow is considered to be a Very heavy - Full server. Not standard.
Well unfortuantly this is bullshit.
On fleet, the instance caps out at 300. Anything over that will be put into Imperial Fleet (2), but the chat will carry over. I have seen this myself. If you invite a person that is on Fleet (2) then it will pull them into your "instance" of the Fleet.
I am on fatman server, empire. The server is usually Very Heavy or Full at most times at night, and at most I have only seen around 350 on fleet at one time (including Fleet (2)). My first server is classified as Standard now, and when I log into fleet there is never more than 100 ppl on. Never. There is absolutely no way a Standard server will ever have 450 ppl on Fleet.
Yes there ARE dead servers. Yes they NEED a merger or free transfers. To believe otherwise is plain ol ignorance.
I stopped playing and unsubbed this past week.. Most notably due to them restricting the upcoming LFG(dungeon finder) to your server only which isn't helping the low-pop/dead servers out at all, not to mention no dual spec in 1.2 either. It is literally dead on Iron Citadel, on average it takes 35-45 minutes to find a group for a HC FP...unless of course your doing lolBT. I really like the game, but it is literally unplayable on some servers at level cap.

Agreed. Having 122 servers at launch in the US alone is absurd.
Rift had 58 servers at launch.
WoW had 42.
WAR had 30.
BW screwed the pooch on this one. They will have to either merge, or give free transfers and soon.
you play on legions of lettow...yeah thats probably most populated EU server. when i leveled alt on Uthar Wynn there were 2-3 people on each planet so 4 man quests? no chance. They either have to merge half servers or nerf 4 man quests to the ground - also dungeon finder is needed.
I don't see how any of these arguments are relevant. I am on one of the least populated servers and finding a group for ANYTHING takes little to no time. If you're looking for a flashpoint, you can get a group together in under 5 minutes. If you're leveling, you can ALWAYS get groups for heroic quests. Hell, my server has multiple pug operations (normal and hardmode) going on tuesday-saturday.
Like I said, I am on one of the least populated servers (Terentatek) and finding groups is never an issue. On empire side (the biggest population), you can get a queue for a warzone in under 30sec. That means on republic side they are getting near instant. All this QQ is pointless.
in my opinion they opened too many servers too fast would have been better to start with a few and open more if and when needed
