Example: You log in and are greeted with 'Your guild has elected to move from Bananarama to Funky Chicken, do you wish to join them?' Click Yes or No, maybe have an Are You Really Sure, and job done. Transfer happens or not.

Keeping guilds together as cohesive units would seem pretty critical.

For your consideration.
I second this motion for Girdda the Hutt!
Peace through firepower. Lots of firepower.

I'm not going to move from my 2 servers , but I thought of a situation for guilds.

I don't know how guilds work in this game but how are you going to organize re-guilding as it were. What if many of your guildies had to change character names etc. I guess you all know your guildies email addresses for such situations , hopefully you do. Also the part about the destination server might change is worrying , you can't split up these guilds. I'm sure someone can clarify this.

Really great that you are bringing this before early summer , ahead of time , well done.

cheers,

Badorb.

This is exactly the situation we're working to avoid by limiting transfers. To quote the blog:

Quote:
Remember, the goal here is to push almost every destination server to an active population that's higher.
Our overall goal is that destination servers will have a higher active population than origin servers that are able to transfer to them.

Relax, you will be able to go anywere you want too.As long as it is a server they want you to move to for free.
Thats how i read it.Why should you not be able to go from PvE to PvP
BioWare is not going to say, nope sry, you made the char on a PvE server so thats were you have to be.
So relax dude.

I'm a GM of what was once an uber active, huge guild. That dead wood is as such because the server situation is terrible. When they look to come back, I'll want them on my guild's new server.

It sounds to me like this simply won't be possible. You either put in your transfer for X server during Y period of time, or you're screwed.
They need to learn that they can't just start and end stuff like this abruptley, this is critical for the games future. This is no rakghoul event where when it is ended people are missing out on a rare crystal, oh no, this is something that will affect subscriptions on a large scale.

With Dreshdae Cantina as my original server with 2 50s and the level 31 Legacy I rerolled off of, I support this.
