BW made the mistake to get involved so they should allow everyone 1 free fair transfer. Dead server moves like they're doing on the 12th should naturally be first with everyone else moving between the new array of destination servers second. If you already have characters on a heavy server you should be allowed to move more toons there.

BW is shooting themselves in the foot with continued silence. Because ilke always they want to play us against each other, they want to see us fight and degrade ourselves and then sweep in to make themselves the hero. Well I like your game BW but your not gosh darnn heros you're *******es.
Yeah this is a good idea for the inital transfer stage everyone should be allowed 1 free transfer of there toons to any server of there choice. Then after that i don't care if they even charge for it. Cause i only want 1 toon moved from my old PVP server to the new RP-PVP server i play and they are basically saying no that won't happen til later. And not giving an eta so could be a week later or a year and that is just not worth waiting for

YOU said that according to BW, he will not be able to. Why you would do that, I don't know, but you did. And instead of admitting to your mistake, you attack me and leave your answer the way it is, which can only serve to misinform whoever reads it.

Don't provide wrong answers and then attack me for actually answering the person in an honest and correct manner. That's messed up, and other people can easily see how messed up that is
3 more paragraphs to continue the derailing. Yeah, time to admit you just want to argue for the sake of arguing and are in no way contributing to the discussion of this forum thread. You're the one who attacked first.

I couldn't agree more. People post rants, complaints, questions, and a few thank yous in this thread, but you'll always have the fanboys who come in and start complaining about the people directly instead of contributing anything to the topic. And it just derails, flames, and trolls, resulting in a bloated thread where real feedback and discussion gets lost in its wake. Happens everywhere you have apologetics and fanboys, and I'm no better for attacking them back. I'm just sick of fanboys. Utterly sick of the cr@p here.

I mean It cannot be that hard. Its just 2 transfers. The server types are the same.
This is only the first phase of free transfers. There will be multiple phases over time. During this first-round of free transfers if your "dead" server is chosen as an origin server you will be able to move all of your characters to a predetermined destination server. Provided you have enough character slots available on the destination server of course.

At a later date they will allow transfers to a more wide-range of servers including cross-server types (ie PvP to PvE). These may or may not come with a service charge.

This is the only free transfers we know of. There might be more, but Bioware has stated it may or may not cost money. Please quote somewhere stating that Bioware said other "phases" of transfers will be free. You intentionally spun the wording of that.

The only question is... How many of us will remain to see that phase...

Perfect all i needed to know i would gladly pay a fee to transfer my toon from my old dead PVP server to the server i am on now. I just hope the phases are not months apart as it would make it just that much more frustrating and that much longer of a wait.

Unfortunately we won't know when the next server transfers are allowed. I hope they appear within a month instead of waiting multiple months.

He's not arguing with you. He's correcting your mistake.

That is misinformation and simply not true. The question was will he ever be able to consolidate his characters onto one server. The answer is yes.

Giving the impatient the ability to skip a few hours of waiting upfront for months of desolation ended up being a trap for parts of the community who were already the easiset to get to whine and complain.
They tried balancing the population at release by artificially placing low level thresholds on the servers that created 2 hour + wait times to select good servers. That experiment failed and created this problem. It put a whole bunch of good customers who pre-paid in awful servers that had no chance of survival.

I wanted to play on a full pvp server. Through 2 weeks every server was full and had a que. When infact they where not at all full, but had artificial managed caps to try and drive players to other servers. How do you pick a full server when every server is full? They could have raised the allowed populations, but didn't in hopes of spreading out the players. Instead they put more servers online and kept very low full limits.

I moved when my server collapsed. I want to be able to play those toons along with my main and benefit from the legacy system and all the time I put into the game from 1 server. Don't pretend players could "know" fatman would be left standing. There was nothing to indicate that was better. Trust me I remember when Naddist Rebels had a 500+ person wait que. Now it cannot get 8v8 pvp matches to fire most days and nights.

So what are you talking about?
