    We acknowledge that this is a very important topic for those of you playing on realms with low population, and it is an important topic for us as well. We are looking into ways to improve the situation, but as we mentioned in the thread linked to by Danellos above, there is no simple and easy fix to this.

    Interesting thread going on the Official Forums about low population servers. A blue post so close to the earnings call. Mergers inc?

    It's bad PR, but it's the lesser of two evils IMO. At least WoW has plenty of cross realm stuff, when ToR gets into that place it'll have no choice.

    Well of course if swtor stays that way. Some days I hate that game others I'm utterly in love.

    OT - I haven't heard such a strong response to the issue by Blizzard before, and to now have this on this big day is intriguing.

    PT = GMT-8

    England = GMT
    Most of Europe = GMT+1
    Finland etc = GMT+2

    The conference is at 1.30PM PT, right now it is 10:04AM PT, so in 3,5 hours. Which is 9:30PM in England, 10:30PM in most of Europe and 11:30PM in Finland and some other countries.

    Remember that CET = GMT/UTC +1, so the difference is 9 hours.

    Let me put it this way, we have about another 3:15 until the **** hits the fan.

    That's 3 hours, not 3 minutes.

    Small loss, about 100k as a guess. I think it will settle down for a while.

    I am coming back here to gloat when Subs Rise
    @Ghostcrawler:Some advice: [My pet issue] is why there were sub losses is one of the weaker arguments players use. Players don't have that data.

    With the annual pass being a big success and the success of 4.3 i bet on a slight gain in player numbers for Q4.

    And if they don't?

    They already killed the scroll of resurrection because people could come back and get everything done (including the last boss of the expansion) on the free month.

    I'm predicting bigger losses than last quarter. I hope I'm wrong.

    Indeed. You've got kids off for break, a new patch, and a lot of new stuff. Plus the MoP hype starting, which will drag in older and newer players who wonder what MoP will be like. But I expect around 100-300k lost this quarter.
