It's an ongoing process.

Also, is there a Q&A about the server transfers? I've been looking for one in the forums but I'm starting to get a little fried from excel sheet; can't seem to find one.

You see what I'm saying?

They seem to lack any ability at all to manage expectations. The time to take metrics and monitor was in the first two days. Not to wait until Thursday and tell people that some of them would be spending the weekend on their dead servers because now they need to slow down.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, they will lose subs over this if they leave people on dead servers over the weekend. Maybe they think they will gain more than they lose, I don't know but people will take this personally as you can already see from their reactions in this thread.

And don't lump me in with the whiners. I haven't played more than 5 minutes in the past month and my sub runs out Monday. I will say I won't renew if I am left on a dead server for the weekend but the truth is I'm not even sure a transfer will be enough to keep me around. In my case it all depends on what my friends do and one of them already quit due to the way these transfers are being handled.

I'm not whining, I just want them to do the right thing. The mmo community needs this game to succeed whether they realize it or not and I get so exhausted watching them make terrible decision after terrible decision. It's like they want people to hate their game...I just don't get it...
Managing expectations is pretty much impossible, because all kinds of people come to expect all kinds of ridiculous things. So if they'd only done 10 servers a day and it would take 3 months to finish the transfers, that would be better than doing alot the first 2 days then slowing down to see how things were going?

What this means is that, while we will open up more origin servers today, you're going to see fewer opening up this week and into the next. The weekend will also provide more data for us.
Just saw this - *** - seriously? If they are basing it on low to high then Darth Malek is probably one of the higher ones (if you can count 6 people on fleet last night as high) so I get to twiddle my thumbs while wait, again while others get settled on their new servers?

You can check my post history, I've never be a BW hater but this is some ********.

What the Hell do you mean "remind" people when this is the first that you had said that there will be slow down while some servers are left out until next week. It's only "reminding" if you have communicated it before - maybe I missed it but I don't remember seeing it.

Agreed its bull they come out and say hey some of you are going to be left behind for awhile. But yet wont say who.

Its also bull they can do as many as they have already and exspect the ones of us left behind to just continue on dead servers while they get their act together.

I understand its a work in progress but when they are make that progress as fast as they have been. We get the idea hey we gonna get our transfers realy soon. Then they hit the brakes oh wait we gotta slow down now. Its just BS

Is shadowhand getting transfers this week? I got till saterday when my time runs out been unsubbed for awhile and was hopeing to have reason to renew. But if im stuck on this deaD Server past then im just gone .

Oh I'm not going anywhere, I've been in this thread for 2 days

Actually, I am going to do some RL stuff here in a bit, but I'll be back unless the Razor is up for transfer when I get home.
