While i do understand all the reasons for this to work i also have to admit in being headstrong (hope its the word as i am not a native English speaker) about not playing on a US server.
However these reasons will only be valid if, and thats a big if, EA/BW decides to locate servers on both the US and EU continents.
I have absolutely no idea how EVE worked regarding servers as i never played EVE.
Don't get me wrong...i am not sceptic about RIG at all...i really love this community...i am just coping with some concerns
I will try to explain my concerns.
Allthough numbers on RIG are still growing we will never manage to populate one server with RIG players solely.
This will mean (according to current numbers):
Assume the RIG community will grow to about 400 players both EU/US.
60% of 400 equals 240 US players and 160 EU players.
Lets say a server holds about 1500 players.
The EU population will only be 160/1500.
On a US server the other 1340 spots will most likely be occupated by US players EU players will hardly connect with.
Wich states my concern...playing on a server with 160 players online at the same time will feel like walking an empty server with all the planets/areas TOR will have.
I am not sure but i doubt i am the only EU player feeling the same about this.
And it may (or may not) be a reason for EU people to keep from joining/supporting our great cause.
Okay...now i really need some cookees...i did math in my free hours
