Yes, people who will unsub for this reason are few compared to the ones who will resub to move their chars. But losing 1 loyal customer and gaining 3 oportunistic ones, will never pay off in the long run.
No matter how hard I try I can't stop thinking about the unsub button. How this ends up will determine whether they keep or lose my sub.

It's been real but the game just wasn't worth the sub for me anymore.

Because they STILL do not have an automated process for it. They have to do something before the "free month" runs out and they actually have to report their true sub numbers.
Dear BW,
Please nerf paper and buff rock. Scissors is fine as is.
Signed, Rock. obligatory referral link.

"We can tell you that all server types and languages will be respected. You will not find your PvE characters transferred to a PvP server, or vice versa!" Wait.. really... why ?? This kinda ruins my plans tbh...
Don't be scared homie.

All you have done through this thread is troll any posts that show any form of opposition to BW's proposals.
Healthy debate and constructive arguements require points from all sides of the fence
Including my side of the argument. Just because I don't agree with you doesn't make me a troll. I could say the same about you.

Firstly, you're assuming i get to keep my name, and my legacy name also.
No, I'm not assuming that. There's a chance you will have to change your name. Frankly, I really don't care as it's a small price to pay. Thankfully, there are other ways to communicate your new name to your guild members so they know how to whisper such as 1) A guild website, 2) A guild facebook page, 3) Logging onto the destination server ahead of time and reserving the name, and then telling your guildies what the name will be before the change. I'm sure there are more. You just need to stop being lazy and do one of them, if you care so much.

Secondly, you're assuming i get to do this as a manual thing at the same time as the rest of my guild.
I have a family. I dont have all frigging day of any given day of the week to sit around waiting for my turn to move. A mass guild move would leave me free of the worry and p*ssing around required to co-ordinate a guild move.
So have an officer set up the guild and when you get around to doing it yourself, get invited and have guild leadership transferred to you when you get there. Problem two fixed. Next?

I point out a lack of effort on BW/EA's side, and you jump.
Fanboi much?
Ah the dreaded "fanboi" argument (is this part of what you call "Healthy debate and constructive arguements?") that people use when they obviously know they're wrong but don't want to admit it. For the record, just because someone agrees with Bioware doesn't make them a fanboi. Second, I've posted at length multiple times about all the things they've messed up about this game. I'm as critical of anyone when they deserve it. I let them have it back in beta for months, as well. But obviously, I agree with them on one thing and I'm a fanboi. You, sir, are ignorant.

If it makes any difference, i absolutely love playing this game, i just think its being controlled by a bunch of ameteurs, who seem to skrimp on absolutely everything they can. In this case, its accommodating what most guilds want.

Just because you dont agree, doesn't make me wrong, and you right. Deal with it
It also doesn't make you right. First of all, it's laughable that you can speak for what "most guilds want" since you have no idea what most guilds want. However, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt in this case because what you're asking for is, in essence, "PLEASE MAKE MY LIFE EASIER BIOWARE." Well, of course, who wouldn't want to do less work? At some point in development, though, a choice has to be made as far as how much programming they have to do to implement a feature versus the time it would delay the finish of the project to get it done. In this case, they decided that the time it would take to allow a guild transfer feature to work with the character transfer feature was too much that it would delay the target date of the project. Especially considering the extremely small amount of work it will be on YOUR part in order to get your guild set up, there's no reason to delay the project in order to put this feature in.

At some point, it becomes a matter of "Yeah, we'd love to do this for you, but honestly it's so little work for you and would be so much work for us on our end that you'll just have to do it yourself so we can roll this project out on time."

Deal with it.
I'm not arrogant. I'm just aware of my greatness.

Do people not read things before replying to them?

We're in the final stretch of testing the service, and our release is now June 12th, 2012.
Transfers will open on June 12th (tuesday).

HOWEVER, not all servers will be available to transfer initially, only some of them. Over time (possibly the course of the week) they will add more servers to that list until all of them are on it.

That is not right you can ask them i have looked on the you do NOT get a free month and they will not give us no more free one's so you have to pay for the game like you did before the one they did just once and that was it did you see the do it again after that No! you did not,
I am looking for people who need more help in the forums and i will be there to help you make it better ok.

I don't have time to read through all the pages, but does anyone know what will happen if your destination server already has eight characters on it? What if they send both of your low servers to the same one? Are there going to be multiply choices?

Also does you character need to be a certain level to be moved? We kind of need to know this as soon as possible so if we have characters below that level we can level them up.

Their message is consistent. People misinterpreted the intial offering, and so it was clarified. And yet people still see what they want to see, apparently.
