Great, so it appears that my server has been deemed too low to live. Lord Adraas was selected by the RP community at the beginning of the game as the server to use and was to be The RP server. We regularly maintain Standard population. We're the second highest population RP server on the East Coast. But now we're being pushed out to fight for the names we've been playing by for months.

I've been Kal since Beta, but now, despite getting my name within the first hour of early access I'll lose it if my guild chooses to move because our server wasn't good enough to BioWare. It's hard enough to deal with changing your name because of a transfer, but for the RPers who have been playing their characters for months it's an even more significant deal. Now, not only will we have to fight with a server that's been active for months, but we'll also have to compete with every other server that's in the same situation, not just for our name but for our legacy at well.

You're effectively changing all of our characters into someone else due to an arbitrary choice on where servers would be funnelled to.
Passion rules thought. Serenity is the path to understanding.
Ignorance rules power. Knowledge is the path to strength.
Weakness rules the masses. Control is the path to victory.
Through the Force my will is done. Through my will the Force prospers.

I don't see why not. The only reason why they stopped yesterday was because of the bug that surfaced that needed stamped out first, but you never know.

I'm on Bastion and it has always remained pretty decent -- not huge, but didn't feel empty. That said, with only one transfer last night our imp fleet was up to 78 pop from usually around 25-40.

So you are special? It would have been the same for people that were moving to your server had they done it that way, but I suppose only you matter.

Honestly I see what Bioware is doing and they are doing a good job for the most part in my opinion. My question is why is Fatman on the list to move too? Aren't there already queues to log into the server through out the day already? I didn't read through all 150 pages to find this answer was just wondering if anyone knew something the rest of us didn't.

If anyone is curious as to why I'm the only person from Prophecy of the Five to be screamin' about getting transferred, it's because I am the only freakin' person who still plays on that server.

24 hour clock is just one of those things I can not wrap my american head around. that and celsius. Im perfectly comfortable using metric length, weight, speed, etc measurements, I can think in meters and kilos and kmph as easily as feet pounds and mph, but for some reason 24 hour clock i still have to think about it a minute even tho its a ridiculously easy piece of arithmetic and celsius, forget it, im hopeless with that. And yes I did use babel fish (or I guess Bing Translator now, stupid Bing) for that, tho my French is actually so-so I probably could have gotten it myself had I spent 5 minutes to dreg up the memories of high school.

Rerollers on Fatman might go back to their original server so it is a counter balance to the influx of new players from orgin servers..
