I'm also tired of seeing those automated replies. It's pretty much a one button response of "There there, live with it. If we ever get around to actually reading your issue, we may fix it once we finish counting cartel profits" They don't seem to personalize anything, leaving us to have to resubmit a new ticket.

Wow I just had the greatest play experience on US Jung Mar server ever. Only 350ms lag with lag spikes of an average 2.5 seconds it didn't take more than a whole second for a skill I clicked on to be displayed on screen. By then the global cooldown had finished (at least on my client) and I could even click on another skill. It didn't always work, but hey. Nothing like the terrible near instantaneous response I get on these crappy AP servers where each skill activation is immediately reflected on screen and the next skill I click goes off every time.

And wait till I tell you about PvP! There's no wait time to die. You can be running into combat and just end up back at the start zone after a few explosions. No need to fight back, none of that wasted effort activating skills. It's brilliant! On the AP servers I had to stand around fighting, attacking and chasing my opponents, clicking on a skill rotation. Who needs that?

Overall, this is a fantastic move on behalf of EA. Bravo! I applaud your efforts. It's just like they said it would be. A much more enjoyable play experience.
Knight: It couldn't have gone worse unless the planet exploded in a massive fireball.
Chief Engineer Arim: At least we'd be warm for that fraction of a second before we all died.

You transferred to an East Coast US server; that's about the right ping time. Had you transferred to a West Coast US server, you could shave about 120 ms off that.

Would appreciate a BW response on this concern as well guys:

Just transferred to Harbinger, and 10mins in already hate it here, the lag is so annoying so many near death encounters, going from 40ms to now 150ms / spiking to 300ms is not making leveling very fun sadface bioware

I laugh that people are now crying about the lag and blaming Bioware. You are the same people that wanted transfers!

Also, in the Transfer page, it says your character needs to be level 10. I just successfully transferred a level 4.

Why are you on Jung Ma? I'm pretty sure the ping on East-Coast servers is worse for most APAC players.

Okay, this is the most rubbish customer service ever experienced.

Originally, support articles told us that we would have our Guild Banks restored upon transfer by Customer Service so long as it was empty and screenshots were provided. This was done, and we were ready to transfer. We came over all last night, and midway through today they change the rules; guild banks will not be able to be re-granted by customer service on arrival.

I can understand consistent rules, but when the same page stated that we COULD restore guild banks and it was said in multiple places only for them to change it AFTER transfer I'm pretty disgusted. You forced us into this, Bioware, and we've lost our guild name, people and size. And you can't even restore a couple of guild banks.

We had two million credits donated for a third vault by a faithful guild member, and now you're TERRIBLE customer service team and poor communication will result in that being enough for only a bank on the Republic and Imperial side each. Have some perspective of who you're "consolidating," those players who still (God knows why) PAY YOU for Customer Service- well, we're hardly paying for content, given that comes all through the Cartel Market nowadays- and you give us not even our banks back in exchange, making it worse by contradicting what you earlier said. As a guild, we're really unhappy. As a person, I'm really unhappy and really again disgusted by this lack of customer service.

This was pretty much the only reason we didn't bother waiting for consolidation, and you throw it away.
There is only Power, and those too weak to seek it.
