They'll make you pay for it when they impliment it.

It's been real but the game just wasn't worth the sub for me anymore.

That's worse than useless.

We don't WANT to stay on an RP server. We consider it the biggest mistake we've made in our collective history of MMO gaming.

Oh look, blaming Bioware for something that wasn't their fault. QQ, QQ

The answer is: You can pay for it after they merge servers (which is really what this first stage of transfers is - voluntary server merging)

Please see my previous post

You re-rolled? Sorry.

You want a different TYPE of server? Sorry.

You've got multiple characters on a dead server and you'd like to move? Here's a new one.

I have a feeling that even this level of transfers is a tremendous undertaking.. but people seem to expect insta guild transfers, are upset NOW that their Fatman characters won't be able to be consolidated with their old servers characters, or OMG I want to be on a PvP server now... it's not meant to fix deliberate actions done by the player it's meant to stablize the current population.

In the future I'm sure doing some of those things may be options for a little $, but as of this moment, they're putting out a very large fire and to expect them to cater to your every transfering desire just isn't realistic.
Transfers at the moment are not about correcting your mistakes.

That is what we ultimately want, isn't it?
I am all for the huge servers but not allowing guilds to move as one is a huge mistake......we are not all single players here.

At least you can admit it was your mistake. Now, you can probably understand why they won't cater to your finicky desires. And knowing is half the battle.

I actually agree with you on this point. I am somewhat surprised they cant move guilds, when you consider they moved them from website data to open this game!

edit: still, my guild will manage. They've said they won't be altering destination servers once they start the moves, so stragglers shouldn't have much difficulty finding and transferring to where my guild will be moving to.

Also they can move whole guilds onto the PTS but not for these transfers.......

We have friends on non-RP servers we want to play with, and playing with them in 1.3 was our sole motivation for continuing. We're bored of Flashpoints, the quality of PVE players on RP servers is atrocious (so getting a stable Ops group of people we can coexist with and/or count on has proven impossible), the quality of PVP players on RP servers is also painfully low, and our hope to rekindle our interest was being able to gather a disparate group of friends from across server types.

So when are you going to release actual server transfers, rather than this pointless half-measure?
If you have friends on non-RP servers, re-roll to them. Nobody's stopping you. YOU picked to play on an RP server, and YOUR FRIENDS picked to play on something else. Those're your own faults. So either re-roll or wait for paid transfers. The current transfer is to address a 100% completely separate issue than yours. No oh-woe-as-me argument is going to get special treatment.

right on ^^^


this stage of transfers is due to Bioware's population issues, ergo the FREE nature of them.

You'll all have to transfer to the same server. I don't see why it's such a huge deal tbh. Any guild that isn't dead won't have too hard a time getting their members to coordinate moving to the only available option I wouldn't think.

Not to mention if they DID try to do what you're suggesting we probably wouldn't get transfers this year.
