The hope that this is the case is precisely why I continue to post complaints and criticisms and support those that do, while at the same time lampooning those that consistently try to silence those that do.

This is great and all but I just don't understand why we can't go from PvE to PvP?? Granted it was my fault for making a toon on a PvE server (which I only did for my guild, that is now dead) but god dammit the PvP blows, leme go to a better server PLEASEEE!!

Question:

My main toon is on a low populated EU server, 'Rogue Moon'.

I rerolled on highly populated 'The Red Eclipse' EU server.

I've yet to achieve Legacy on both servers. Will I be able to move my main toon to The Red Eclipse or should I just delete him?

So, lemme see if I get this right. If I move a character from my home server to a destination server, in which I already have a Legacy on, I don't get the option to rename my Legacy at all, and am defaulted to the Legacy name I have on the destination server?

If so, kind of a bummer.

Specific to the information provided above, can someone explain this because I am a bit confused.
Sure It means if you're part of the Banana legacy on your server, and you transfer your main to Jedi Covenant, all your toons on Jedi Covenant will become part of your Banana legacy (assuming that legacy is higher than the ones on Jedi Covenant). If there is already a Banana legacy on Jedi Covenant that belongs to another player, you will need to choose a different legacy name.

Whilst it doesn't directly affect me, the description of how to transfer a guild does sound... awkward. I can see that yielding a lot of pain & CS tickets as it stands. Surely the entity can be transferred (and players left find themselves guild-less) rather than vanishing & reformation?

Perhaps merely I took issue with the phrasing e.g. 'money grab' Absolutely Bioware need to understand players' situations.

As mine has no doubt been lost somewhere around page 4, I would be quite keen to consolidate the characters I have across two servers.

I agree...they really need to allow this to happen, ESPECIALLY given the length of time it took for transfers and the severity of the drop in populations. Players were essentially forced to reroll alts to get any enjoyment. For what people have paid in sub fees, some leniency should be given.

I read we won't end up on a PVP if we're PVE.. but what if we WANT to move between a PVE and PVP server?
