Here's what im saying, by moving my old toons to fatman where i am actively playing (and with more than one guild ) will not increase the population anymore than it already is, forcing me to move my toons to another server is not the answer to balance the population on fatman, because i would rather stay there than go elsewhere.
I too have established myself on fatman I have 2 characters in the mid 30s im looking to bring my 50's from my dead server to the fatman as Scotland said getting those characters transferred wouldnt take up any more space cause im active on that server Already. so plez bioware dont leave the players that re-rolled on another server (cause of ur mistake at launch by opening too many servers) without there main characters and legacy.

This is obviously overdue and nice, but it still isn't enough. I understand the limited servers from and to, in the beginning. After that, they still need to allow free transfers, at least for anyone who is already a paying customer now. I have 3 characters on 3 servers (levels 50, 49 and 35). Each time it was because a personal friend was playing on that server. Then they quit playing due to all the issues. So I found out that someone else I knew played and created a character there.
I really want all of my characters on the same server, and I want it to be free. That is not too much to ask. I can wait for the initial process to end, but it still has to be free. I wouldn't have used different servers if my friends didn't stop playing. They wouldn't have stopped playing if the servers were full.

A compromise I can make is to guarantee that I would play for X more months if they make ALL of the transfers free. At least for founders or something.

We understand that some of you may be looking to consolidate characters from a variety of origin servers onto one server, and others may be anxious to move to a specific server to be with friends. With the restrictions of this initial service, that may not be possible. We still believe that you will enjoy playing on a higher population server and hope you'll take advantage of the service, but you won't be forced to transfer. Future versions of the Character Transfer Service may allow more options in your choice of destination servers and may require a transfer fee. While we do not have a scheduled time frame for the launch of such a service, we are committed to making improvements to the Character Transfer Service over time to provide players with a great gameplay experience. Stay tuned to www.StarWarsTheOldRepublic.com for more details!

Wait, let me guess: the phase that I have to pay for.
That sounds right, unless all of the servers aren't Heavy/full by then.

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

There is only one west coast rp-pvp so either we get screwed and get the option to move to an east coast server or the easterners have to transfer to us. Wouldn't it be better to allow west coast pvp servers come to us or let us go to them?
Blah blah blah signature, blah blah blah stuff.

I really like this game but i'm not willing to lean over and take a beaten because your company can't get its crap together with transfers / mergers in a timely fashion and only seem to care about one part of the larger problem.

FREE TRANSFERS FOR ALL!
^^ COULDNT HAVE SAID IT BETTER MYSELF!!!!! all serious players that were tired of waiting 3-4+ hours for a pvp queue that re-rolled on the fatman. will be getting shafted and shafted hard.

Nowhere.

That's what makes the statement absolutely incorrect.

Since theres only 3 rpvp servers, wont the RPVP "mega server" end up being very small compared to the ones built out of many normal servers?

I guess you're going to have to highlight for me where they said "There is only 1 Phase".
