If BW is smart they do 1-2 servers at a time. Cause then if even every character transfers to the same server most likely it will not be full, especially since over half of the people on your server are probably unsubbed anway and most servers dont have enough active accounts to overpopulate 1 server.

TBH, im crushed by this, I was desperately hoping to move my PvE server toons to a PvP server, as I have discovered I rather enjoy PvP. Now apparently this will not be an option

Only at first. It will be an option later.

Not right now. But it will eventually be an option if you are willing to pay to transfer.

And Rift only has 250k subs or less across 119 servers, too. Obviously not a solution for four times the population.

Please allow players to transfer their toons from dead servers to the server they already have a high level character on. In my case I have 2 separate 50's on 2 separate dead servers. I would like to move them to the server where I currently have my 3rd 50. This server has a healthy population and it would be nice to re-unite my high level toons.

Thanks

You of all people should know better than to mix subs and population

What's the "obvious" bottleneck? Please, elucidate me on the logistical & technical problems that prevent BioWare from giving us a reasonable server transfer system that's not built on quasi-optional pseudomerges and paid transfers down the road.

My question is i see where your doing selected server transfers. Meaning theres only going to be certain servers that get the free transfers either to or from . So what about those of us o n a dead server that dosnt get in the list ?

Are we going to be stuckon dead servers untill you implement a paid transfer? Or will all servers be allowed a free transfer? . Trying find out if its worth resubing or if theres a chance my server will not get on the free transfer list.
