Reposting this thread, since the title is no longer accurate: Server Transfers, 10 Months Later...

8 pages, 4k views, no Bioware response. We are coming up on a year now, this is not acceptable.

Your mistake to think they care / will live up to what they said about transfers.

Threaten to never buy from the Cartel Market though - that'd probably get they attention, or say something from the market is bugged, etc. They usually reply to those threads.

SERVER TRANSFERS! Seriously why are we still waiting?

Still the most popular thread in the CM Suggestion forum by far. 28 pages so far, no response.

Hey everyone,

I wanted to give an update on paid character transfers as I know it is something that everyone has been chomping at the bit for. The reason for our silence on the issue is that we are still working through some issues with the transfer tool and so we didnít want to set an expectation on timing and not meet it. Also, it was very important to us that we informed our APAC players of our plans first, since transfers related to their current issues as well.

With that said I wanted to let you know what our current plans are. As it stands today, our goal is to launch character transfers with Game Update 2.2. Now, as I noted above, we are still working through some things so please note that this is just our goal and that it is entirely subject to change.

I will update you with more information as I get it, thanks!

Hmmm...more Cartel stuff Eric? I hope there's a lot more to 2.2 than that.....like....content?!
All warfare is based on deception. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected. If his forces are united, separate them. If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near. A leader leads by example not by force.

Lemme guess how this works Eric,

1.) You will need a "Transfer Certificate" to transfer from your server to another.
2.) Transfer Certificates are available from a new kind of gambling pack
3.) The Transfer Certificate will be for a random destination server
4.) The Transfer Certificate will be an ultra rare drop
5.) You have to have Ultimate Hero status with the Cartel Market to use the Transfer Certificate
6.) Transfer Certificates are Single Use, Bind on Pickup

Did I get that right?

I recall Eric saying in a previous post that 2.2 contains NO CM features.
