On Tuesday August 13th,2013 we will be performing scheduled maintenance for consolidation of APAC into West Coast North American servers. There will not be a patch to download during this downtime. Details are as follows:

APAC and NA-West Coast Servers will be unavailable from August 12th 10PM PDT (August 13th 5AM UTC; 3PM EST-AU) until August 13th 10AM PDT (5PM UTC; August 14th 3AM EST-AU).

To minimize downtime for other services, NA-East Coast and European Servers, SWTOR.com, and the game launcher will remain available for several more hours. We anticipate they will come down on August 13th between 12 AM and 4 AM PDT and will remain unavailable until 10AM PDT (5PM UTC).

During maintenance, updates and additional information will be posted on our Twitter account.

Thank you for your patience as we maintain service for Star Wars™: The Old Republic™.

You'd better have your tech guys on standby. I estimate a 90% chance Harbinger will crash that day.

How about opening up trans-atlantic transfers while you're at it ? :P

1. What happens if I have too many characters on a server after the merge?

2. How does this effect the bounty hunter event start time? It's starting about that time isn't it?

ok so European servers are going down 2-6 hours after?

This timeframe makes sense . The following for NA-East and Europe doesn't

What I read here is that the servers may go down on 12 AM PDT. They will come online again 2 hours EARLIER on 10 AM PDT. Something in there must be a mistype. Can you please elaborate more about the downtime courtney? (PS: don't forget to post the UTC-times for our convenience ;-))

EDIT:
Yesterday had a thought about it and besides the missing UTC times the times are correct indeed. Since I never use the 12 hours AM/PM system I forgot that time goes from 11 PM to 12 AM. Feel like a noob now

The converted downtime to UTC would be from 7 AM UTC / 11 AM UTC till 5 PM UTC.

Actually, if it was supposed to be online 2 hours earlier, then it would be 10 PM PDT (on the 12th, too), not 10 AM PDT. The times listed are right.

Will people already on the West coast servers have the potential for losing their character names? If so, why?

No, when a transferred characters name is already taken on the server , the transferred character has to be renamed.
