I don't know how everyone else in the community feels about having only one predetermined server to transfer from, but I feel it definitely isn't enough. I understand that you all want to make sure a server isn't over populated, cut down on possible wait times, and a number of other issues. This is a good thing...dont get me wrong. However, can we get more than one predetermined transfer option. I am currently on the pve west coast server Veeboo Lunx and the predetermined server is pve Drooga's Pleasure Barge another west coast server. Can I get a predetermined east coast pve server to transfer to? This would still allow you to control the server balance while giving us, the players, another option.
I rather not they give a second one, personally I would rather people be limited to only picking the alive servers right now. Basically this means people aren't allow to transfer to any of the dead servers but rather the live ones. We don't want people seperating to different servers all over again. If you want freedom to transfer this is the best that people should get, transfer to alive ones but not the dead servers.

This is important to understand for anyone looking at numbers. They don't translate into general population distribution without different means of sampling (than those I used).

However, the observations I collected do have meaning. They are a good sample of reasons people who volunteer their opinions provide about liking and disliking transfers. It's a piece of qualitative data.

Oh, I wish BW released their data sets! Won't THAT be interesting to analyze?

While its good for making sure people transfer to active servers, instead of dead servers. They still should have had multiple destinations for one origin. You see I had rolled on 3 different servers (as the previous one died). I had a grand total of 15 toons on those 3 servers (Perlenian, Zhar, and Zakkeg). All 3 servers were selected to go to Drooga. That means I had 7 toons that could not be transfered and were ultimately deleted as a result, as I didn't want to leave them on a dead server. If BW had opened multiple destination servers for every one origin it would have fixed my problem. I could have transferred the ones on Zakkeg to a different server and not had to delete any.

I don't think you needed to "delete" them. It wasn't required for you to transfer ANY of them, and you could have just transferred the ones you wanted and leave the others behind until either transfers are made available to OTHER servers or the amount of character slots are increased (which is in the works), then you could have brought more over.

Personally I wouldn't use the word multiple destinations, I would just say, people get their choice depending if its a alive server. So those extra 7 toons can go to your choice of a server.

Thanks for killing Shadow Hand... I've queued in pvp most of the week, 50 and the lower levels... absolute nada. Good news is that I have the Republic space station all to myself! Thanks! And it is still having the Server Admin Messages every 15 mins. There are 2 players currently on Tatooine, mid-late afternoon on a weekend. C'mon rethink that server.

What else would I do with them. I can't afford paid transfer at this time, and rumor has it that is the next stage of transfers is paid. So they would remain on a dead server, might as well just delete them.

No offense but how is that different than what I said. Opening multiple destinations would give people the choice of which server to go to.

This character transfer seems to have turned Ajunta Pall into a ghost town! the Galactic Trading is empty, there are only 1 or two players on each planet. Even the fleet is empty!

Ajunta Pall was probably an Origin server. Of course the origin servers are likely to be ghost towns now.
