Updated with new dev tracker info, updated bullet points.

Sauska - thanks for the better wording on the legacy bullet.

Also highlighted the answers to the most common questions asked on the forums by people who can not or refuse to read the information from BW.

Highly unlikely. They are not going to keep adding source servers for a single destination server until its full, they will almost certainly monitor how many people are transferring and at what rate until the server reached Heavy but still has some space and then stop nominating new source servers for that destination. That will allow for people to transfer later on without causing it to be instantly full.

The transfer process will be ongoing for a while with new combinations published as the process continues to allow BW to manage how the population moves, they want a decent number of good population servers rather than just a few that are overfull.

In fact, impossible. The Dev tracker cleared that misconception up completely (I think I sent Parmie a PM with the details.)

There's a number of people on the actual comment thread to either can not read or completely refuse to read what the devs have written on this point.

This means that the destination server will already be selected for the origin server. As mentioned in our blog post, all server types and languages will be respected. You will not find your PvE characters transferred to a PvP server, or vice versa.

Therefore, all guild members on the origin server will be eligible to transfer to the same destination server, ensuring that the guild has the opportunity to stay together.

Please note that we will NOT be dividing the population of an origin server onto multiple destination servers for this free character transfer process.

With this information, you can see that you do not need to transfer at the same exact time.

Or they will just EXCLUDE us from the transfers ? As much as it sucks, it's probably what they will do.

Rogoo - I know you're pissed because the EUR RP-PvP servers are in a bind. Please go put that on the appropriate thread, and not here. No one who can do anything useful about your situation will read or care about anything you post here. I'm trying very hard to keep this an information thread only. Please go put the opinion and the speculation in the appropriate thread where the devs might read, respond to, or care about what you say.

Please, I'm begging you, please go post in the appropriate thread.

Excellent thread, I hope this will help to clarify things for people who refuse to accept that they can just go off to any server they 'like', at will. It is for the first part to pre selected servers from A to B which makes sense now.
