Quoting myself here for further clarification. This doesn't mean that we won't be evaluating feedback and populations on an ongoing basis. We will be evaluating the options for folks on these three servers as we continue the initial character transfer service. If anything changes, we will be sure to let folks know immediately.

Logically it makes the most sense. It saves money for BioWare (keeping only 1 server around) and it makes it better for players as it makes grouping/pvp easier to do. I don't mind there being only ONE east cost RP server personally.

For the PvE guys, One interesting thing is that they seem to have not moved very many "IMP heavy" ones yet. Since the quantity and decidedness of "IMP heavy" outweighs the "PUB heavy". My guess is my IMP heavy server is destined for the Shadowlands or Jedi Cov. Hope they took that into account before they did the pairings...

This is the kind of desicion making that made you guys lose 400.000 subscribers, and you are going to lose much more than that if you continue acting like this.

Give your customers on RP-PVP the ability to transfer like everyone else!

Make a new "Fatman type" server... why only have 1 server for PVP East, no option for new players will suck
