How is it too much to ask which servers you will offering transfers from? This ludicrous secrecy is doing you no favours. I am sitting on Luka Sene EU PVE which is so low on players now. I get online and see there are hardly any players on planets or in fleet and I just lose the will to play. I subscribed for 6 months and right now I am dithering as to whether I should carry on with it or not. I really like the game but I am BEYOND fed up with the lack of players. If my server does not get transfers I will cancel the sub so please tell me WILL LUKA SENE BE GETTING TRANSFERS OR NOT? YES OR NO. Thank you.

Or they could do something for the entire continent of Europe.

Thank you for opening a line of communications! As a customer service guy myself I understand the strain you guys are under. Being in Europe I must admit that I was rather flustered after not seeing any EU servers today.

I noticed Red Eclipse is stocking up nicely, which probably means my server (Peragus) won't be going there. :P

Anyhow, I just wanted to say I personally appreciate these tidbits - in the end they really help.. even if you don't get to give us any good news yet!

I've been able to transfer all but one of my chars from Cassus Fett to Vanjervalis Chain. Although there are now 7 chars on the destination server, the transfer page claims there are 8, and thus does not allow the transfer of my last char. This has been the case yesterday and I assumed that it might just need time to properly update itself (had name-placeholders there and thus shortly 8 chars before I removed placeholder after placeholder and transferred the chars), but there was no progress even after a full day.

What now?

Precisely. It's so funny that the BW reps seems so active, yet they pretty much never say anything relevant. It's alway PR and damage control.

Keywords include: MAYBE, MIGHT, SOON, HOPEFULLY, VERY EXCITED.

You are not your rig specs. You are not your K/D ratio. You are not your character level. You are not your sig.

Wait... on the 20th your driving to Austin to pickpocket $15 from the CEO? Cause thats the only way you could really make them $15 poorer.

My request for information hasn't been addressed either. When I have chars on 3 EU PVE servers, none of which have yet been flagged for transfers, what do I do if all are flagged for same destination, esp since half are dark side and half light. I don't want, nor do I have room for all 14 on 1 server, I want my dark on 1 server and my light on another. Will BW give free transfers for the ones I can't transfer due to no slots? Part of my problem is I have 4 dark and 4 light on 1 server, so half can go with the ones from 1 of my servers, but the other 4 will be stuck, unless I can either choose another destination server, or get transfers for them to go to another server.

They haven't even addressed this issue in the FAQ I understand.

So please so light on this problem, as I have read that I am not the only one with this problem.
