Three Months on SWTOR's APAC Server: A Waiting Game for Shae Vizla's Revival

Three Months on SWTOR’s APAC Server: A Waiting Game for Shae Vizla’s Revival

Three months into the life of Star Wars: The Old Republic’s (SWTOR) Shae Vizla server, and my journey here has been nothing short of a rollercoaster. Despite not residing in the APAC region, I’ve thrown my lot in with this server, driven by a desire to see it flourish. My commitment has seen me reaching personal Conquest targets on all four of my characters weekly, a small but meaningful contribution to our guild’s growth and, by extension, the server’s vitality.

The Current State: A Quiet Aftermath

The end of the season brought with it a palpable dip in server activity, a trend not unique to Shae Vizla but one that feels particularly stark here. The bustling PvP queues of the season’s final week have given way to a silence, a stark reminder of the challenges new servers face in maintaining engagement. Yet, it’s not a ghost town. Guilds remain active, and the Conquest boards buzz with life, signs that not all hope is lost.

The Double-Edged Sword of Server Transfers

The announcement of server transfers was met with a mix of anticipation and apprehension. While necessary for infusing Shae Vizla with new life, it seemed to cast a shadow over current activities. The details of the transfer process, offering both free and discounted moves, are a beacon of hope. Yet, they also prompt questions about the server’s economy and the impact of an influx of credits.

The Economy at a Crossroads

With the potential transfer of up to 240 million credits, the server’s economy stands on the brink of significant change. My own experience, with less than 10 million credits to my name, underscores the disparity between Shae Vizla and more established servers. The coming weeks could see a dramatic shift in the Galactic Trade Network, with early movers possibly reaping the benefits of a fledgling economy.

A Hopeful Gaze Forward

The upcoming PvP season and the launch of server transfers in March are pivotal moments for Shae Vizla. These events are not just opportunities for increased activity but also a litmus test for the server’s appeal. My hope remains undimmed, fueled by the prospect of queuing for PvP once again and the potential revitalization brought by the new Galactic Season and server transfers.

Reflections and Anticipation

As I reflect on the past three months, my journey on Shae Vizla has been a testament to the power of community and the enduring appeal of SWTOR. The challenges we’ve faced have only strengthened my resolve to see this server succeed. As we stand on the cusp of a new chapter, I remain committed to Shae Vizla, ready to welcome newcomers and veterans alike into our fold.

Novara Skuara

When I was 7, I saw Star Wars: A New Hope in theaters a week after it opened. My parents were nice enough to take me and I have been a fan of Star Wars and almost all science fiction in general. I am an amateur writer who has been published for contributing flavor text to a RP game. I also have a copyright on a novel I hope to be able to publish sometime soon.
