  1. 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.

  2. 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?!
