Alright folks, here are the updates as I mentioned yesterday!
  • Timing: We are in the final stages of testing and assuming that all goes well, we are going to bring transfers back online on Tuesday with Game Update 5.6.
  • Pricing: By popular request, we are going to bring transfers back at the pre-United Forces pricing (90 // 150CC) for a limited time. After that time they will go up to their new standard pricing of 1,000CC.
I will let you all know on Monday if we are still on track for transfers to go live again on Tuesday and the exact timing for the sale pricing.

Thanks everyone.

PSA for those planning on transferring lots of toons due to lag: transfer 1 and test the lag on the new server first. If it's not any better, at least you didn't spend 2k cartel coins transferring 25 toons.

I guess I do not understand the urgency to get transfers back. Where are you going to move, and why? They just consolidated servers, and they announced in advance which server populations were going to settle where... weeks before they shut down transfers.

Note: my comment is in no way supportive of transfers being off, and I am glad to see them turn them back on... but I really do not understand the urgency being expressed by players.
Current use of smartphones and computers have already become such a part of who we are to which he sees them as an extension of everyday life that makes us “cyborgs. Further, AI is a serious potential risk to the future of humanity.

People want to move away from Satele Shan.

There really weren't a lot of people pushing for it. Check this thread, ya it's 3 pages but it's mostly 5 or 6 people saying they want it and others saying no need for it.

I guess some players are having bad lag and hoping transferring will help? Or missed the boat when their friends transferred pre-merge and want to hook back up with them. Not too many other reasons I can think of, but I'm glad they waited till those "blah blah server is the official RP/PvP/PvE server threads all died.

Actually, there are a lot of threads and there's another one that is almost 10 pages long.

Either way, there's a lot of different reasons. Mine is that I want to buy raid runs from an EU guild. Others have issues with legacies, want to switch servers to be with friends, want to get away from lag, want to fix their situation with RP (the whole Satele v. Star Forge thing) -- I've seen all sorts of different reasons.
