You're right guilds will not be transferred together in one chunk. But, they will be sent to the same server. They will NOT be split up. Even if the destination server is "full" they will keep your guild together.

Read everythign they said if the destination gets full the destination will be changed. If you don't get transfered at the EXACT same time as your guild mates you will NOT be on the server with them. Read the above post it pretty much says it.

You can get F'd over by this move.

Here I'll show this to you in their own words. Ready Line Number 2 "disband" its very telling.

1. Due to a variety of factors (including the naming and re-naming process after transferring characters), this was deemed to be the most efficient method in assuring that Guilds retain their Guild Banks on the new server.

2. Yes, you will have to:
  • Remove all items & credits from the Guild Bank.
  • Disband the Guild.
  • Transfer to the new server and reform the Guild.
  • Contact Customer Service to re-establish the Guild Bank and Guild Bank tabs.

Hopefully that answers your question.

No offence joveth but it seems were having to work even harder becuase all guild support is being pulled....

Two more questions based on this information;

1) Why do you hate us and want us to quit?

2) Will you ever do anything right?

My Step son and a few friends joined Star Wars late and were ineligible for the free transfer to an Asia/Pacific server, at the time The Jekk’Jekk Tarr and The Harbinger were unofficial Australian servers so he went there, my question (or His).

With the new server Transfers coming on June 12th will he be able to join me and his mother on Dalborra as there are now official Asia/Pacific servers?

No This merge is only for dead / light servers to go to a predefined destination. You're in the boat with the rest of us...someone will have to fork cash.

No matter what you will be transferred to the same server as your guildies. Even if you transfer waay later than them, even if the destination server is "full", they will put you with your guild. Guilds are an extremely high priority and will have special conditions to keep them together.

You can bank on it.

Read the above you have to "disband" your guild. If they were going to ensure everyone going to the same place they should do it like th PTS moves and not this half *** break up the band and pray you get your back.

Thank you for the answer. However please consider different options in the future.
