That is why they should have done mergers to consolidate servers and launch a pay transfer. I would have been happy if they shut down the servers they were merging to get it done. This is nuts.

Please sort this i want to go to THE RED ECLIPSE
Maybe you don't but most of us would like standard to high pop servers with little to no queue times. Letting people go where they want would be a disaster right now. Once the servers are balanced, a paid unrestricted transfer option would be fine. And people whining like this on the forums is the reason BW made the last bonehead decision that created all these dead servers to begin with. And finally, you're $15 a month entitles you to play this game on BW's servers, thats really about it. Anything else they give you is their discretion.

I'd happily pay right now if it mean t i could go to Where my other Toons are on The Red Eclipse.
The amount of friends and guildies... and even the odd Special Citizen aka window licker have left Kellian Jarro due to it bening a ghost town(station) well lets put it this way the republic station has more tumble weeds than players.
so yes i'd love to pay, lets do this

They will wait till after this free transfer process to start rolling out paid transfers.

Contrary to some peoples beliefs most people don't like wasting their time rerolling over and over again because their server died, they were expecting to be able to move their characters where they wished and continue playing.

Bioware didn't deliver this, and because they didn't I can only see things getting worse as many that placed their trust and faith in them to get this sorted and stuck it out will just quit, aggrivating the problem further.

Ultimately its bad management and appauling design that's plagued this game from the outset and its got to stop.
I have to agree. 100%
