BioWare has announced that it will be shutting down Star Wars: The Old Republic’s Asia Pacific servers and then moving all players to North American ones.

After consulting with players on the Asia Pacific servers the developer came to the conclusion that the best way to solve the population complaints was to merge the servers with high population North American ones.

“Getting to the point of being able to merge the servers is going to be a multistep process,” wrote BioWare Austin community manager Eric Musco. “First off we need to update our Free Character Transfer System to include the game changes that we have made recently along with the upcoming changes in Game Update 2.0 and the Digital Expansion: Rise of the Hutt Cartel. We will then offer Free Character Transfers to anyone currently playing on an APAC server to a North American server of the same gameplay type.”

The server merges are as follows:

  • Mastar Dar’Nala (PvP) will transfer to The Bastion (PvP)
  • Gav Daragon (RP-PvE) will transfer to Begeren Colony (RP-PvE)
  • Dalborra (PvE) will transfer to The Harbinger (PvE)

No timeframe was given for the merges.
