Server population issues are a huge problem with this game.

Contracting the servers to a smaller number presents alot of challenges to Bioware...
a. Manditory or optional. It has to be done, but what about our friends?
b. Free transfer or do we pay. (It will be cold day in hell before I spend more money to help correct a vendors mistake.)
c. Guilds. Its difficult to do an optional transfer and keep guilds intact. Not impossible but difficult.
d. Alot of other things I have not even thought of...

I am hoping for the best with 1.3
I really like this game. I do not wanna go back to wow or hit D3. I really hope they solve the server issues with some intelligence.

Worst case senario,
No guild transfers, you pay to get there and have to rebuild.

Best case senario,
Free transfers, guilds stay intact on the destination server.

But if I am asked for another $25 or some such to help them fix the server population issue. I am done.
I am not married to this game just yet. It is still disposable.

Good luck Bioware
Its an awkward problem... dont screw it up.

1.3 will make or break the game depending on its release date. Transfers/mergers have been needed since February, and taking a month to release it would be disastrous.

they already said free transfers to select servers...or didnt you bother to do any research into this before you posted?

as for the guilds, they will likely offer a guild wide transfer to servers, ( or they will assume the entire guild will choose the same server, the guild wide would be the most logical, though it itself creates problems, more cross refrencing with names and what not..

the good thing if they let guilds entirely go, they could perhaps try and even out the number of imp pub guilds on servers, by transfering entire pub guilds to high imp servers and so on..so that is an option as well

I can already give you your answer.

Transfers will be free and guilds will not stay intact. They can not offer to move entire guilds because everyone in the guild may not want to transfer, transfers will be done on an individual basis.

I disagree another month will no destroy this game, 3-5 would do serious damage but a month? i doubt it.. there are alot of people saying they are leaving, but i rarely believe anyone saying they are quitting a game when they post on the forums, alot of people say it for shock value to try and force the devs into action (silly notion really) but alot of people are anticipating these transfers, so i think more people will stick around the month or so it will take.

Games in a lot worse shape than this one still exist or lasted for years. SWTOR isn't going anywhere, don't fool yourself.

Can we stop with the "make or break" topics now? They have been out from the start, and swtor is still alive.
