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.

Can you guys lower the cost of character name and legacy name changes then when server transfer costs go back up to 1000cc?

OK...what's going on there? First you announce you'll be doubling our existing UC's and now you're keeping transfer prices low for us to move? This is like, the exact opposite of everything you've done all year.......I could get use to this Eric...

Notice the carefully hidden disclaimer.

Not that I'm transferring any of my characters. I'm just saying that I wouldn't hold my breath. Someone may just drop a turkey giblet into the code and mess things up.

Why transfer 1 to test the lag? Wouldn't it be cheaper to just create a test character?

Looks like I will be pleasantly surprised next week, then. (assuming disintegration values for gear in RNG boxes is decent.)

It will be interesting to see how the population balances out by the end of the year.

It would, but if the lag is only in certain places (pvp especially) it would be a lot quicker, especially since lowbies don't pop that much (and you'd have to level your toon up to 10, which also takes more time, and lowbies has few effects than 70s). If they went back to 1000, definitely worth it, but at 90, especially since it'll sync legacies up as well, it's probably worth it to move one.

I wasn't paying very close attention to where I had my characters. 39 of them merged into Star Forge and 4 of them merged into Satele Shan. It will be nice to get them all onto a single server.

Open server transfers -> Everyone moves to Starforge -> Starforge will become the next SS -> SS will lose population -> Merging of both servers ->???-> What was the point?

Now this may seem like the worst case scenario, but it wouldn't surprise me if it actually happened.
