Australian server transfer in LATE April!

We get a new server! We have lvl 50's who raid and play endgame, but we have to wait almost 2 months before we can bring them across and actually play on the better latency?

Which person came up with this concept? You knew when the aussie servers were coming up and you did not allow for server transfers to happen immediately?

So now if we want to play on our mains (Which we DO) we have to go back to the 250 latency pings for another 2 months! Bravo!

And what happens when people take existing legacy surnames which we cannot reserve?

This is so pathetic!

Well only solution for me: End subscription till April and then try again! The only reason I renewed my subscription was because of wanting to play on low latency servers!

And for anyone wondering where I am getting April from: Its in their FAQ:

As the ocean of problems with the game grows, they have to push some stuff back I imagine

Yes, it is pretty appalling to push transfers back until late April. I wonder why they are doing this - are they still trying to figure out how transfers work? lol

Yeah, this is going to make me quit - I have friends who are rolling on the new server and I want to play with them - having to wait almost two freaking months to play with my friends without rolling a new character is beyond retarded. Possibly the stupidest thing you've done bioware, and you've done a lot. Talking to people on my server theres a LOT of people very, very angry about this. Oceanic servers will be a ghost town a lot earlier if this happens - since everyone will straight up quit.

So, we can't play our mains on there for 2 months, and the sheer amount of people on the server makes it near impossible to level up a new character at the moment (just tried)
So basically we can't do shi* all with them.

And we're shafted at the last minute again.

Seriously, what's going on? How can this be thought of as okay? Tearing the Oceanic community in half again.

Already lost a couple of character names because they put the servers up early and if I loose my legacy name I will be mega pissed. Pre ordered simply to get in early and reserve names and now I am in the position that I either stay on Swiftsure and deal with the latency for when rated WZ come out or put mega hours in on an alt I don't want to play to try reserve my legacy name (again).

BW has been horrible with customer relations from the very beginning so I shouldn't be surprised that they hold the cards close to there chest rather than sharing info with the community but that is my biggest complaint so far with the game.

I dont post on these forums for the obvious reasons, but SERIOUSLY BW ***?! End of April before I can play on my toons on the local Australian servers?

You could have rather have kept your Aussie servers to yourself.

Consider my sub cancelled until you, BW, wake the **** up.

won't have my sub next month, only reason sticking around for the new server has become disappointment. No content , broken ilum from beta , so many reports fallen on deaf ears.
