The RP people need their transfer to a RP server, even if PvE. These are server transfers, they are server merges which BW just refuse to admit because it's bad PR. But the press aren't idiots. Game were forced (I assume by EA or even BW) to pull their article on Free-to-Play relating to SWTOR. This actually creates more interest in an article you didn't want talked about. People aren't stupid. Everyone knows this is clearly a server merge.

You claim people don't have to move all their origin servers, but LC is virtually dead now so are you really going to continue to fund running those servers for the rest of the year? I don't think EA will agree to that. Not only that but leaving the origins servers on means you'll going to create the very problem all over again, that the transfers is trying to combat.

New people may join the game on the free to level 15 deal but then roll on the light servers thinking it's just the time of day, that's why they are light. Then they'll realise that actually, no, there is no one on that server anymore, transfers will be over so they'll just quit. So surely you won't be keeping the origin servers open despite claiming you will.

Although you constantly deny it (like you denied server transfers were even being looked at about a month or 2 ago, lying and saying server populations were healthy and fine when they clearly weren't), deny this is a merge, it clearly is. So why not give the RP players the option to move to a RP PvE server.

No one likes a liar, or internal BS politics being pumped out to the paying users yet BW seem to be getting quite good at it. Surprise they aren't all politicians. They talk like them.

Now, if the pvpers were moved to a rp realm, they can still pvp just as much in the Warzones, they're gameplay will only be affected a little, they can still keep their pvp guilds, rpers aren't hard to avoid. But, what about the rpers? We get sent to a pvp realm, we can no longer rp. We'd be griefed, trolled, mocked. Sure, we can pvp, but alot of these people, myself included, only still play this game for the rp. We are now being forced to abandon our characters, our Legacy, and completely re-roll on a new server? This will tear communities apart. Sure, the best solution is let us transfer to either rp or pvp, make it our choice, but if thats not possible, you're chosing the worst of the two alternatives. People on rp-pvp realms that only pvp'd already dealt with rp, avoided it if they didn't want it. Would it be that much harder to do on a normal rp realm? I shouldn't think so. However, as I've stated, we rpers will no longer be able to rp anymore, we stand to lose more here, and for what? I'm just irked.
Well said!

This thread has no business on page 2.

The RP community on the now dead Lord Calypho server need the option to transfer to a role play server, which pretty much gives the option of RP-PVE Progenitor...so, crack on Bioware lets not let your ********* excuses and internal EA politics about single destination servers get in the way, all the guys who wanted to go to ToFN have gone already, lets get the link setup between Calypho and Progenitor so the remainder of the players can get off then you can bin the Calipho server completely.

Dude, like I said before, even IF there is a single destination issue, they can still open transfer from ToFN --> The Progenitor, so the Lord Calypho people can go there like that. They have no exucse not to do that.
Bleh...

yes please, I'll resubscribe for 6 months.

LC is dead, I'm trying to enjoy the class stories but damn.. around 100 people in total (rep and imp) means there is nothing going on and I refuse to play on TOFN, that's not why I bought this game. Immerions, atmosphere and RP.. better on a dead LC that on TOFN.

I completely agree Kiyosa, I've not moved my main off Calypho yet for the fear of being trapped on ToFN but as you rightly say that solution would be perfectly workable I'm sure for the guys left on LC. I would move my main as soon as that was confirmed but no way I'm moving before as I said, I wont get stuck on a PVP only server because thats not the kind of community I have any interest in being a part of.

For all of those coming on here to show their support for a move, however traditional or non-traditional, from Lord Calypho to The Progenitor for the disenfranchised RP players, thank you very much. And please click the "YOU GO NOW" link in my sig to go cast a vote on our petition page (located under the Suggestions Forum on this site).

And +10 cookies (with sugar on top) for anyone who can tell me what morbidly obese comedian made that line popular, and in what context.
