think you got it wrong..you can move to another RP - PvP servers

as it states in the FAQ :-

Can I transfer my character from a PvE server to a PvP server, or vice versa?

At this time, as part of the initial Character Transfer Service, you will only be able to transfer characters between selected servers of the same server type. Effectively this means transfers will be allowed as follows:
Between eligible PvE origin servers and eligible PvE destination servers
Between eligible PvP origin servers and eligible PvP destination servers
Between eligible RP PvE origin servers and eligible RP PvE destination servers
Between eligible RP PvP origin servers and eligible RP PvP destination servers
Transfers will also respect the official server language, ensuring those players who are playing in French and German will continue to experience their server in their chosen language.

Edit
If your on the EU side then your knackered as there is only 1 which I hope BW will give some sort of exemption to

Good PvPers who deserve a server that literally in 3 days of queueing at peak with them had 1 imperial match.
You are pointing out the problem that they are literally fixing as we speak. Believe it or not your situation is not special. This thread is full of people thinking they are the only ones that can't currently PvP. Again I am not happy with the way things are, but I am not going to piss and moan when the fact that they are changing to fix the problem right now.

I wish I lived in a magical place where this was never an issue but the fact is that server transfers are not magical, they are in fact so complicated that BW isn't even trying to deal with guilds. What about all of this makes everyone think that it should be an instant transfer for everyone?

"Boo hoo! This game is exactly like WoW!" Then after Beta testing "Boo hoo why don't they have auto attack like on WoW!"

Because on the post it says:

To qualify for a free character transfer from a low population sever to a high population server, a player must have a character on one of the selected origin servers and must meet the following requirements:
•A player’s account cannot be in a banned status.
•The character being transferred cannot be a guild master; they must either resign as master or demote themselves to a lower guild rank to be transferred. (Guild rankings and status will not be transferred.)

I believe the problem is that there's only one RP-PvP server.
