Based on what they put out today (http://www.swtor.com/info/news/blog/20120917) it sounds like this will only impact people who remained on the old origin servers. Whatever server you had the option to transfer to willingly back when this process started seems to be the server you will be going to tomorrow night. For instance I was on Shii Cho and transferred to Jedi Covenant...so if you are still on Shii Cho...WELCOME TO JEDI COVENANT!

Disagree? Guess we'll see in a few hours.

With GW2 out and fixing problems as they come up and already working on new content and TAKING CARE OF THEIR CUSTOMERS... you guys are not gonna last without an attitude change toward your customers.
I think you're lying cause you're still here and still very emotional about it all.

Glad you have stuck around.

If not will I have the option to move her for free when slots become available?
If I understoond it right.

Any toons you left on origin servers will be merged into the destination server. Even if you have 8 toons on a destination server and bring 8 more over. you will now have 16 toons on one server. Problem being, you cannot create anymore toons till your number goes back down to under 12 as 12 is the technical max but it seems cause people are forced to merge. You get additional slots for all your toons.

The only real drawback is if you have toons on a server combination that do not all go to the same destination server. They you will have a split family of toons.

Wait, are they forcing all the characters off the origin servers from the first transfers? Or are they taking the dozen or so servers now and consolidating them further?

Sincere question: If you left, how do you still have access to the forums?

Based on the post they put out:
"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."

It sounds like it's the SAME destination servers most of us moved to earlier. Just optimized them to take on the additional folks they are moving tomorrow morning.

People, as usual, are not reading. For the moment, they are doing the automatic transfers of the remaining players from the origin servers that most of us already transferred off of. Joveth did post in the PTS forums last week that they will be looking at consolidating some current destinations servers but that is not what this merge is, according to the post this thread is about.

Canderous ordo was a destination server last time around. They are moving into Jedi Covenant tomorrow according to the consolidation matrix found on the transfer page.

I have a question, does this mean that we'll have ONE PVP server, ONE PVE server and maybe an RP one only???
Yes, my gaming company just threw my game into F2P, but your game just threw your gaming company up for sale...
