Not allowing us to consoldate different characters from different server types is fail. Rift did this in no time after release, and it worked fine. It appears your technical capabilities are dwarfed by Trion, a far smaller company than you.

NO, really. Fail.

Your competitors are licking at this games heels waiting for it to fail. You need to be ahead of your competition not five years behind it.

It all comes back to management...

Fixed for reality of the situation.
Relabeling future patches as Expansions, just like EA Louse said a year ago. Who got the last laugh?

For the millionth time people you WILL be able to consolidate characters across multiple server types LATER, and most likely still for FREE. Just not right now. Be patient.

Many, if not most people have already rerolled on other servers that are more populated so that they can play the game with others instead of waiting for hours to do a warzone or flashpoint. They did this in the hopes that they would be able to bring their main characters along later on and be able to keep their higher legacy, plus add their new character on their new server to that legacy. Now you are saying that probably won't happen. Grats on another major patch causing the exodus of more players.
They didn't say that it wasn't gona happen, they just said that you wouldn't be able to do this atm.
The colors on the Malgus is wrong. Have a look at Malgus. Now look at the set.

From my understanding the list for the transers will not be available until Tuesday. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

They are releasing the info when it is available for us to use, not before. There will be origin servers and destination servers. They have stated that each origin server will only have one option for destination, but they have not stated if each destination can have more than one origin.

They have stated that a single destination server can have more than one origin server, its in the announcement:

Quote:
In some cases, a large number of origin servers will be eligible to move to a single destination server. In others, very few origin servers will be transferring to existing high population destination servers. Remember, the goal here is to push almost every destination server to an active population that's higher.

i thought you should have a source:
From April:
Quote:
Arymono: When will character transfers be available for everybody?

Dallas Dickinson (Senior Producer, Live Services): We will be rolling out our Character Transfer Service in early summer. First we’ll have some targeted free transfers from/to specific servers, but that will be followed with a broader system where you can either take advantage of free promotional transfers to specific servers or paid transfers to the server of your choice. We know everyone has more questions about character transfer, and we’ll reveal more details closer to the launch date.
There is still time for them to choose to fix the problem they created without charging us extra. Otherwise, it's a con like a mechanic scoring your belt with a razor so your car breaks early and you have to pay him more. Would Bioware really break their game and expect us to pay (above and beyond the agreed upon subscription amount) for it? Even Darth Malgus has more tact than that.

If the devs or community managers still read this thread, I would really like to know how many more months I will be expected to pay for without having this service. Is it Bioware's position that it's best for those of us who transferred servers so we could enjoy the content of the game to stop our subscriptions for a couple months while they put their house in order? I look forward to learning more on Tuesday when you release the FAQ along with the first transfers. Thank you.

It really annoys me that whenever announcements are made that there are no timelines, schedules or even a vague notification of the time frame in which things will take place.

It doesn't take much for a community ewok to come along and say "Hey guys, Here's our plan but it's subject to change from time to time so don't take this as gospel, we just want you to know how things will progress and the path we've chosen in order to build a community that we and you the players can be proud of.

We understand that we've made some mistakes but please stick with us while we fix them for you and provide you with the bustling server populations you deserve.

Find below a list of Destination Servers which is subject to change should issues arrive but we will update you when things are finalised. In addition to the destination servers we'll be adding the names of the servers that characters will transfer from and the planned dates on which these transfers will occur.

Thanks for your patience and understanding,

Your Community Ewok."

It's not hard, we UNDERSTAND that things change on a daily basis, we understand that this will be a difficult task for those involved but please, "Coming Soon" is not a statement the community wants to hear over n over again!
