Or, are we going to have to suffer another round of mergers in a few weeks because this did not work?
We don't know the numbers for sure but its probably towards the top end of Heavy at prime time (need to leave some space for anyone who resubs and transfers). They have said they will merge multiple low pop servers to another low pop server, the aim being to build it up to Heavy..

They did tell you that, all the PvE and PvP servers will be either origin or destination servers in this phase. The only exceptions are the RP servers as they don't have that many candidates to merge with. They will likely be adressed in a later phase of transfers.

I have a feeling that today we will have allot transfers. Lets wait and see. The way there are doing things we will not be in a server to full or to empty. And at the same time wont be waiting 1 or 2 days for my char to transfer. Let them do in a organize way guys

However i dont want to have to wait 3 weeks playing on the least populated server still, they have been awfully vague all through this process.

Also, that one point does not render my other arguments invalid

This is like shutting off the water and power and telling a man you're not forcing him to move out of his apartment.
