What month and date for transforing to another server?

Hate to burst everyone's bubble but the devs can barely MANUALLY copy players onto the Public Test Server let alone getting around to doing a regular server transfer.

Better to cut your losses now and create that alt on more populated server that fits your timezone than to waste your time on a toon that will not/never get moved anytime soon in the near (or far) future.

Why pay $ to play on a dead server when you can have tonnes of fun on a populated one?

My advice would be to try life on a RP server before deciding if you really want to be there, because a lot of people try it and either get turned off by all the idiots trolling with the "rawr, I am playing an anti-social Sith who likes nothing better than to piss on your cornflakes" or they turn into one of those trolls.

I do not agree. Asking players to start over should not be an option. Mythic did this and the end result was splitting its population and destroyed the game.

'Hey we're sorry about that disastrous expansion' but you can reroll on this new server that doesn't have the expansion. That's not acceptable. No rerolls.

But as it turned out there were lots of reaaaaally cool people there and end it up in a guild with bunch of them. Now I'm having so much fun with them I cant bare the thought of even leveling my BH at the other server even tho that's the toon I love the most
And no, there's no possibility to make another BH at my guild server, I just cant go thru Balmorra and Nar Shaddaa 4th time in a too little time Would need for the time to golden my memories before I can do that

So you can probly imagine why would like BW to hurry the heck up with the transfer feature
I feel you. I leveled a 50 SI and 50 Smuggler on a server that DIED. Like, legitimately. So I re-rolled on a major server, but hate that my SI and Smugg are left behind; and I won't re-roll, because the questing is SO linear, that I couldn't stand going through Balmorra, Coruscant, Dromund Kaas or Taris for the 8th time.

I've also heard it was supposedly happening in May, the oceanic move being a sort of test run, if you will. (The coding is clearly there) and, at the guild summit, they discussed how legacy would transfer (The highest legacy of the server you're transferring from/to would be kept) etc... so I know it's coming.

I'd like a definitive date as well.

Ok... ok.... I complained about not wanting to reroll after getting to 50, but getting to 15 takes at most 3 hours. That's one you can tough out. I've leveled every character to at least 10, and some multiple times to find the server I wanted. AFTER getting two characters to 50. Now I'm on my Third.

15? You can totally do that.

I think Sanctum of the Exalted is sufficiently populated.

Here's the data, with actual numbers of players by level:
