The full list includes Afghanistan, Albania, Algeria, Andorra, Bahrain, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Egypt, Estonia, Gibraltar, Iceland, Israel, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Latvia, Lebanon, Libya, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malta, Moldova, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.

During the week Daniel Erickson, Bioware Lead Writer, said that though subscription numbers hadn’t dropped, the number of concurrent players had, which could mean that servers are merged, according to PC Gamer.  This expansion into new territory could help alleviate that problem

    Problem? In some areas the lighter load on the servers means fewer players competing for the same resources/objectives at the same time. I rarely have to wait mid-mission for an objective to respawn any more. That’s the opposite of a problem to me. :-)

      Problem for Bioware in having to maintain servers with low populations.

    If they merge servers, even with low population what happens to people that share a character name? if I have to change my name they better compensate me greatly?!
