How are you guys interpreting this as a let down? I was surprised not to hear more from BW about the xfers earlier this week, and yes the lack of knowledge was annoying. But these guys are doing exactly what they said. transfers START today. All you nerd rage-aholics were complaining 45 minutes after they rolled this out.

Need I remind you that this is a MASSIVE multi-player online game? despite popular belief there are more than 45 people playing this game. BW has to move hundreds of thousands of accounts and if they did it all at once you would still be waiting forever, it would just be a bigger shiz show than it already is. so cool your jets and give it a day or two.

I am so tired of the forum people not having a mode between satisfied and on the brink of murder/suicide. Can't you be mildly annoyed, or somewhat dissapointed without declaring the end of the goddam world?

"Boo hoo! This game is exactly like WoW!" Then after Beta testing "Boo hoo why don't they have auto attack like on WoW!"

WHY THE HECK transfer people there.

Why not save other servers like Shadow Hand?
It gives me the sense like they are REALLY going to be consolidating servers down. Like, possibly 10-fold.
As another east coast PvP wasteland, I welcome the opportunity to (hopefully) go to Fatman too. I don't want to go to some other half-*** population server.

Are we ALL going to end up on JC and TF in NA?

Just shut it down. I'm sick of this biofail.....
The people on those dead servers ARE being saved, they're probably going from nothing to a thriving community.

YES, if your server avg. pop. is low enough, then you might be sent to JC or TF where you can enjoy the game with other people for once. Remember, Bioware is trying to make bigger pops across the board, so I expect to see the same destination servers come up often (until they reach the capacity that Bioware wants).

IS this game that dead that we are going to become like WAR?

Are we really going down to one or two of each type of server in NA?

Is this game THAT dead? EA the MMO killer.

I'm done with this conversation. Keep trolling somewhere else.

I'm sure that the low number of servers just means that they are worried about how this will work and possible mistakes.

The FIRST BATCH of people are therefore "guinnea pigs" or "sacrificial lambs"

I am absolutely positive that once it works (bug free) they'll open it up
Actually they worked out the bugs very well on character transfers to the PTS already. I think their concern is more, once you que a character for transfer it cant be played and if they open 60 servers up that might make that wait 3 days, so do you wanna play you character for 3 days and see if your server shows up OR better yet you end up a destionation server OR have your character in limbo for 3 days?

I prefer knowing that doing it this way will reduce the time I cant play my characters then I can wait, I am still hoping my server becomes a destination for 1-2 others.

From numbers ive seen online it appears they have choesen the lowest 4 pop servers to transfer to the highest 4 pop servers. You think your server is bad, imagine if you were on one of those servers, a friend of mine quit because his server (listed in this initial phase) had 11 people on Imperial fleet in primetime last month and PvP ques werent popping for days. So if your not on the initial list your likely on a server with a better situation. I highly doubt they just randomly picked servers, but rather they picked the servers with the most frustrated populations for players who were dedicated enough to still be playing now.
