Even a message saying there will be no transfer would be better then the silence we're experiencing at the moment.

Imagine a new player coming to LC, enjoying the game and leveling up to around lvl 10. He/She arrives at fleet and sees everyone bashing the server and BW. How inspired do you think he'll be to keep playing on the server or for that matter the game at all. Now that they've started free trials this is even more important since those 1 week players will not even bother to buy the game. What you're doing to LC right now is disaterous to the server and all we're asking for is a simple answer to or questions.

Is this happening or are we gonna keep beeing ignored?
If you're seriously considering it, what are you thinking?
If there is a problem giving us 2 options for destination, is it technical or is it considered unfair to other servers?
Is there any kind of timeframe we can be given on a defenite answer?

Those who had a lvl 50 character at the 1.2 update recieved 30 days free gametime because the ranked pvp feature was missing in that update. I think this indesition on BWs part is a far more serious problem for the players and personally I belive the time has come for us to start demanding extra gametime for the time we keep getting ignored. Right now we're paying full price for an incomplete product.
If this happened with most other products people would be lining up demanding refunds, but since this is a computer game and the audience is younger then in avarage the customers are less likely to know what they can demand and actually damanding it. The younger audience get bored and simply quit and choose to spend their money elswhere in the future.

My subscription is running out tomorrow and I have no plans to renew it. Maybe I'll be back in a few month, maybe I won't. I'm bored and simply quitting and choosing to spend my money elswhere in the future.

Good luck to all the players who hang in there and last of all I want to thank BW for 6 months of great gaming with an awesome game and I regret that it came to a end like this.

Bioware will make us somehow pay for our server transfer because they see how desperate we are for it

Our server is dead and Bioware just sit's back in silence while people cancel their subs they do not care
right... I'm not desperate. I'm giving them last chance before I'm gonna go full hate mode on them and not gonna ever buy game from their company and spread the word, what kind of practices they do.

Hi folks, as promised, I have a bit of an update. We are still examining this unique situation with the three European RP-PvP servers and we are working on various possible scenarios and what their impact will be. Rest assured that we will communicate to you as soon as we have the most optimal scenario. Thank you for your continued patience with this.

Could you at least tell us those "various possible scenarios"?

This is an update? As far as I can tell you're just repeating what you said before the weekend.
Please don't treat us like this.
What are the various possible scenarios? If we knew this we might be able to assist you in your choises.
When can we expect something to actually happen? If you told us an approximate timeframe you'd go a long way to calm us down.

I appriciate your effort and I know this isn't your fault, but this is too little too late. We want to know what's going on!

Update? what update? Theres nothing specific in there, no information on any of these various possible scenario's that are so called being worked on. No ETA on how long we are going to be stuck like this, No apology for being left out while everyone gets to play the subscription-based game they paid for and in most cases are continuing to pay for. Nothing about having,at the very least, the last 4 days of sub time refunded to the players affected. In short you told us nothing.

As for patience well....I think you can see from most of the posts that this is something that is in very very short supply.

While i know this is not your fault directly JovethGonzalez, still as part of the BW machine surely you have some influence and can get us at least some information on what is going on, not PR spin & damage control.

Sincerely
A very dissatisfied customer.

What i would like to know is there anything we can do speed up the process? Sure im dissapointed and frustrated as anyone else. But at this point ill rather be helpful and get things done, than raging in forums. I think we all benefit if we try help each other instead.

I understand it cant be easy to decide to remove our unique server tag entirely from EU, just as Bioware i think many players would like this game have a future. I myself chosed the RP-PVP tag for various reasons, and would like to stay on Lord Calypho (NOT at the current situation). So what options do you guys have? In what direction are you working in? If you decide to do nothing can we get some help with "promoting" our RP-PVP tagged servers?

Wouldn't be surprised if they let the players transfer to a RP-PvE server or a normal PvP server (probalby with an option to choose which one they would prefer). Lets Face it, Bioware didn't planed to have RP-PvP Server until very close before the release of the game... And I already can see how people will hate that but people will leave the RP-PvP server and make it only worse for those who would like to stay.

Yes, I think that would be the worst BioWare could do (but they have made stupid decisions before, so it wouldn't surprise me if they make again a stupid decision). The Language barrier makes RP (and most group content) not very enjoyable. Sure, the server would be more populated then, but mostly with people one cannot really play together.
