Hi all.

All is in the title really. When will they be available again, when merges were announced they did write that it will be brought back shortly after the Forces United but I see no date anywhere and I tried searching online to no avail. Anyone any the wiser?

Thanks.

Subscribers should get one free transfer either from:

East Coast server to Unofficial Official RP Server (also located on East Coast)
or
Unofficial Official RP Server (also located on East Coast) to East Coast Server.

That does not help me at all as I am in EU. I was talking about the proper character transfers like the ones we had prior to merges.

Not going to happen PVE and PVP don't get their own server, RP is not getting special treatment.

East and west coast don't even get their own server, you think they will give special treatment for RP?

Transfers need to be locked for a minimum of a year, possibly even a few years imo.

"need to be"

Why?

After a merge like this it comes naturally to some "sorting event" where people need to see which servers they like most...forcing them to one will just cause ragequits....

So the way to go is to OFFER FREE transfers to who ever wants one,not forcing players to be at one server.....

What you want could be the end of this game...

Quite a few people are asking if server transfers will be up soon. Yet we have no date or even an estimation as to when server transfers will be up. Bioware devs can we please get an answer or even an estimation on this topic?

Hopefully they will give us a free transfer so I can get half my 59 characters off Star forge and put on Satele. Since they did not ask for our input about the merges that would make me feel better about it.

They said "shortly after" but it's already been a pretty good while, with several days for them to respond (weekdays). I don't know why they can't just spit it out.

Hopefully next Monday or something, I guess.
