Hi everyone,

Earlier this summer we launched the Free Character Transfer Program which offered players the option to transfer their characters from specific origin servers to selected destination servers. Following the success of the Free Character Transfer Program, and after closely monitoring server populations, we have now taken the next step in our on-going server population balancing process. We have upgraded destination servers in order to support a significantly higher number of players. As of tomorrow, all characters on origin servers will be automatically moved onto the upgraded high population destination servers. By centralizing our player populations on these higher population destination servers, we feel that we can offer our players the best possible Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ experience.

That explains the eight hours of maintenance tomorrow, I was terrified some bright spark had decided to push 1.4 for an early release.

I wonder when we'll hear what current destination servers are going to be consolidated and when.

Is this only forcing the Free transfer options to happen or are the server break downs going to be different than those options? I.e. If I had a character on Krayt Dragon is it now going to be on Shadwolands? Or are the servers getting further consolidated?

Edit: I also assume this means that F2P is coming soon?

What about those of us that re rolled toons on what turned out to be a destination server that our original server did not get transferred to. I have a lvl 50 republic toon on jedi covenant and my server was transferred to shadowland, When will my family be whole?
