Hey everyone!

We will be taking the servers offline on Tuesday, October 24th for back-end maintenance. This maintenance will be extended for hardware upgrades happening in our datacenters to prepare for United Forces.

Reminder - Character transfers will be turned off with this maintenance. They will not be turned back on until some point after United Forces which is still TBD (based on testing). The current character transfer sale will also be ending on 10/24.

Details:
DATE: 24 October 2017
TIME: 3:00AM - 10:00AM PDT (1000 - 1700 GMT)
VERSION: N/A

Thank you for your patience as we maintain Star Wars™: The Old Republic™!

Might want to fix that date in the first sentence to align with the rest of the dates.

So you're saying that peoples will have to pay 1k cc now in order to transfer ? That's... very strange, especially just after/before a server merge...
Will it get back to 90cc after the merge ?

The September 19th typo is also on the launcher message.

Can you confirm that they'll be back to 90cc after the merger, or what Keith mentioned in the livestream, regarding discounts *beyond* 90cc, including a whole legacy transfer?

So, when you said you weren't changing the price of character transfers you were just flat out lying? 10/10. Always being greedy I see.
Remember, a Jedi's strength flows from the Force. But beware. Anger, fear, aggression. The dark side are they. Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny.

Oof. There's the kick in the pants that I needed to transfer all my characters off Begeren Colony. XD Thanks for the heads-up!

I think the note implies the sale ends on 24 and won't be back.
