Are we ever going to be able to transfer characters from a EU server to a US server? Or are my characters over on The Red Eclipse just SOL? Figure I know the answer, but thought I'd ask anyway.

Guess the better question is: Why? Is it a technical limitation or something else?

As far as I recall, it was open during a few hours after the character transfer implentation, then suspended. Bioware said it's something they wanted to do but couldn't for the moment without revealing the reason. Maybe someone else has more details.

One thing I don't understand: why some US players want to play on EU servers and vice versa?

After they moved across the ocean for instance. Or for aussies, after they tried different servers and figured out the fastest for them is on the other continent.

There is a myriad of possible reasons really.

People move, work odd hours, live in spots that aren't really neither EU or US timezone, they have friends there, they are in a multi-national guild and their guild is there etc etc.

I wondering this myself.... How long has it been they first implemented the server transfers ? One year ?
If there was a technical problem I doubt they've been working on it much...

In my case, during the time of too many servers one of the people in the guild I was in started a character there and we all followed. Then that guild dried up as everyone moved to other games. So I went to The Shadowlands and joined TORWars.

Ah, did not know that. Very interesting. Looks like my answer is: Red Eclipse Characters are SOL.
