I dont need data to figure out my server is dead while 1000s of other people have been put on a server which is alive. There have been hardly any issues. Why not open up some more servers? Was the plan to do this all along? Yesterday it was implied they would do as many servers today but we have only a small trickle now. We cannot even know if our servers are in the list or not. I mean come on I am so sick of this. There is absolutely no reason for all this secrecy.

This weekend I for one will spend looking into other games rather than waiting for Bioware to finally get its act together.

Because this is a process, we did need to start somewhere, and that means that some servers needed to become available first so we could begin monitoring to inform later decisions. Really, our information about populations and what players are doing now that transfers are available informs our next steps each time.

Fast answer to all questions: we have no idea what to do next because we will lose money whatever we do.

Read his post, he ran into the "I'm already transferring but my 8th toon can't move cuz it's says I have no spots left even though I've only moved 7" bug. The response to this was buried somehere around page 100, figured I'd try to help him out some.

While I appreciate the response and know you are just the messenger, that dog doesn't hunt. You guys knew exactly how many active people were on each server, and you know the numbers your servers can handle. It is safe to say 95% of your active subscribers are going to transfer, so what in the heck is there to monitor. It's like 5 minutes worth of spreadsheet work to sort it all out. What it really sounds like, is someone messed up yet again and didn't divide things up properly.

I truly think that you all either have very short memories or this is the only MMO you have ever played. EVERY MMO dev's reps say this stuff on the forums, if they say anything at all. SOON™ is a joke on every MMO forum I've ever even lurked on.

Prophesy of Five was a pretty low pop server so I was concerned when became a destination server, especially this morning when it appeared Fatman had just as many origin servers. Now that PoF has almost twice as many origin servers as Fatman, I have high hopes that the population will improve. We shall see how it works out. Can't wait to play tomorrow afternoon to see how it does!
