They are simply going to encourage people to transfer off of the lower pop servers, they made it quite clear that you will not be forced to transfer which kind of implies that no servers are being shut down or merged and that no forced transfers will occur.

They aren't merging anything, anyone that thinks that servers are being shut down or merged should probably take a closer look at the actual article, because none of that is happening.

It should be happening, but it's not.
If you are on a medium to low pop server and you are told you can transfer to another server with the potential for a higher population, I doubt many people are going to stick around, making those servers even MORE of a ghosttown, which is what I mean by axed.
Peace through firepower. Lots of firepower.

One thing, will you lock out servers, meaning that if that their populations is so low that no one should be playing on it. I am on one of the much lower population servers and it is so bad that no one should move here, will you block it off as everyone on the server takes part in an mass exodus.
and the Force beat generic Swords and Magic any day. 8/26/14 That was my old signature but after RotHC, I went back to superheroes and swords and magic. Now waiting on Dragon Age and a SWTOR story expac for my Bioware fix 7/30/15 Returned for KotFE. Finally, a story expac.

Unlike some people I don't try to push that on others as fact.

You are not required to move when transfers become available; it's your choice if you'd like to stay on your server.

Never said it was hard, but read some of the issues others have voiced, as far as with people missing windows and what not. If BW was able to arrange it that we signed up as a guild before launch and were put together upon first entry into the game, I would think that they could figure out a way to transfer a guild as a whole to streamline the process.

I have a question.

Will they be shutting down some servers? More specifically the 'Outgoing' servers? Because unless they force people to transfer and shut down some servers, I don't see it fixing the problem completely.

In order to balance the servers out, you need to force push some people from the 'Heavy' servers to move into the 'Light' servers. Or else people who are already in 'Heavy' Servers won't move, and if your only option is to move from a 'Light' Server to a 'Stardard' Server, or worse yet, a 'Light' Server to a 'Light-Stardard' Server... it won't be so great.

I hope I get the chance to move to a 'Heavy' server...not just add an extra 20 people on the fleet.

No one held a gun to your head and made you do anything.
You should have just stopped playing, like most of us did.

No, it's just that, right now, the QQ is much quieter than if they allowed a free-for-all. A free-for-all is a bad BAD idea. And so is a merge.
