As mentioned before, because of the logistics in monitoring the rate of character transfers and population shifts onto destination servers, our cadence for opening up origin servers will change day-to-day.

As we approach the weekend, we want to be careful about where to allow additional servers to transfer to so as not to overwhelm current destination servers. Many weekend players will be logging in, contributing to our overall analysis.

This means that we need to monitor populations and rate of transfers over the weekend before opening up new servers. We understand that players are anxious to transfer, but please be patient during this process so that we can deliver the best gameplay experience that we can offer.
OK, so in English, are you or are you not opening new servers for transfer today? A simple yes or no would suffice.

Answering these two questions will save you guys alot of grief.

1) Is bioware planning to release more then one batch of servers today?

2) Is bioware going to be opening new servers on the weekends (that means saturday and sunday)?

That will make people alot more informed causing less stupidity.
he did answer them, they arent doing transfers until after the weekend.

On the Internet, you can be anything you want. It is strange so many people choose to be stupid.

Leaving people stuck on dead servers over the weekend ...... *sigh* ... but still taking their money - that is NOT the best gameplay experience you can offer.
Seriously - step up to the plate and start being responsible for the mess you've created.
The ability to speak does not make you intelligent.

No, it does not look like it. Please see the reasoning in my previous post.

That is the answer - no more transfers until next week. They aren't going to work on the weekend to do it.

I think he answered you:
"This means that we need to monitor populations and rate of transfers over the weekend before opening up new servers. "

Montior populations during the weekend. Then, after monitoring populations which will consume the weekend, they will open new servers. No new server transfers until Monday.

I have a question... Why do they need to monitor the populations if they are planning on having super servers?
