This.

(or maybe we can start a republic guild on the aussie server for something new? :P)

We'll be launching with three initial servers dedicated to these territories. As previously mentioned, these servers are physically located in Australia:

Dalborra (PvE)
Master Dar'Nala (PvP)
Gav Daragon (RP PvE)

Well I'll be rolling an Agent or marauder on the Aussie servers to see what it's like pop wise, plus as melee I just think the minimal ping is too good to pass up on. In regards to guilds xfering to oceanic don't forget there's quite a few who aren't on the swiftsure

This is the best reason really - if you hav a day off at work, nothing worse then logging on and finding noone to play with / against. At least on a US server you have the yanks to smash, then the aussies when they come on in the evenings.

Its a moot point really since we arent having transfers at day 1 - we'll just see how things pan out..
