Don't think they have said but will bet dollars to credits the answer is no.

You were saying?
Try reading the quote. I said "as long as they don't procrastinate." You were saying? Basically, if you want to transfer so badly, do it and get it over with. If you are lazy and wait, you have nobody to blame but yourselves.

1) RP-PVP server question. I'm on a rp-pvp server in Eastern USA; Ven Zallow (a mostly dead server). Since there's only two RP-PVP servers in Eastern USA, is it safe to assume that Jung Ma (a borderline well populated server) is going to be my goto server? Or is there going to be a removal/change/blurring of the RP-PVP designations?

2) This has probably been answered already somewhere, but: If I decide to transfer 1 or 2 characters and leave 4 others on my origin world, would I later be able move the other 4 as part of this free exodus?

They said the highest-ranked legacy stays. So I imagine that whatever unlocks you have for your highest-ranked legacy, you keep. And you lose the unlocks of the legacy that get's eliminated. But I could be wrong.

Anyone know if you have to move every character or just a few? I mean if you decide to move and you only want to move a few cause your guild decides they don't want too; can you leave one?

Again, the purpose of this consolidation is to fix population issues, not to shuttle you wherever you want to go. If you want choice, wait for that to come later on. If you want more people to play with, that you'll have available next week.

TLDR: more people=free and next week, all your toons together=not free and later

I don't understand why the dead servers need to move to already-existing bigger servers. Just merge them - it's the simplest solution. Oh wait you probably don't know how to code that either, right?
