Wrong-O lol Well you should check your facts this is not a new server it is an upgraded destination server Jedi Covenant has been here the whole time. Please read quote from the Server Consolidation FAQ " We have upgraded destination servers in order to support a significantly higher number of players. As of tomorrow, all characters on origin servers will be automatically moved onto the upgraded high population destination servers."
Let the Drama resume!!!
I can tell you upgrading a server isn't like installing an extra hard drive, or throwing an extra memory chip in. So technically speaking its entirely new hardware, meaning new rack server/servers with data copied over from JC's old hardware, and CO's old hardware on to new hardware. So actually it is a NEW server.
