The people at BW have brought this upon themselves and continue to do so with the vague and taunting information throughout pretty much every single thing they do on this forum, and to this community. To their customers.

If they at least came out and said things - you'd have a case against what you like to belittle by calling 'forum sharks'. But as it stands - them not giving out much information at all is simply inviting that any piece of information will be 'chewed up' by the 'forum sharks' much to the amusement of those - who I suspect - already got their toys to play with or those who'll just defend them no matter what.

Point but lets be honest with ourselves, the forum sharks are already tearing BW to pieces. This way at least some people would have some peace.

I started on a laid back RP realm ( from what I could tell less hardcore RP and more RP/PVE/PVP kinda group of people, good stuff for an MMO like this ) I leveled on a PvP server in WoW and having been on both sides of the fence of world pvp while trying to level, I wanted somthing a bit more laid back, as a change of pace.

Excited about the possibility of a transfer, I got home from work to save my characters names on whichever realms they had available for transfer for my realm. All of my highest level characters names were taken on the only destination realm available to me. So I am like, whatever, I like my names, I like my community for the most part, I am going to chill here.

This afternoon before I head out to work, I check to see if any new destination realms were available, just in case. EVERY available origin realm for my zone is going to the same desination realm, the same one where all my names are taken. So of course I am like, this really seems more like server mergers, and excuse me if I am attached to the names I have had for 50 levels, countless battles and so many epic duels, but I don't want to leave if I can't keep my characters intact.

Say the majority of people do want to move, what happens to those of us who don't, are they going to shut down our servers eventually and if so are we going to be forced to move in that case and what will happen to our names and legacies? Can we come to some kind of alternative, such as some way we can get our first names associated to our legacy instead, allowing for multiple people with the same first name ( I mean that does happen right? )

Can we get an update on where this migration/transfer process is going from here?

This, basically. I'm not sure why you're being thanked for telling us nothing. Seems like NOT saying anything and then randomly coming on to say nothing officially, are pretty much the same. I could be wrong.

At least it's something we're used to from them by now, straight back to the development days.

After transferring 17 servers to ToFN, Bioware have little choice but to allow the remaining three to go there, too.
But ToFN is already full. If they set Basilisk Droid or Bloodworthy as a new destination players going to come back for 1.3 and ranked warzones and population will get better. Bioware could also change some of the origin servers to have either Droid or Bloodworthy as their destination instead.

Hmm, I don't think they can do that. What about a guildmate who is on vacation and then returns only to find his entire group of friends/guildies transferred to TOFN, yet the only place he can go is Bloodworthy? That would not work.

Perhaps they could give the option of which one to go, but then you'd have to appease every other region somehow, which isn't happening.
