Also, i am not asking them to "get it done right away", although that would be nice.

I am asking them to communicate. They have people whose sole responsibility is to communicate. Post something like "we are going to do more transfers today, we do not know when". Or "we are not going to do any more transfers till Monday".
For the first time they are communicating... what they can, no longer is there "Coming Soon" there appears to be an active dialog between.. .well from community managers to us :P Remember despite being people they'll have branding guidelines and policies to follow. They probably want to tell us more but can't due to things constantly shifting and changing.

You have to remember that the servers when selected probably have a hundred little jobs including transfers which are related to it... this is no small undertaking and will take well into next week to complete by the looks of things!

Rest assured that I'll post here when I have a fresh update.
So, some people get to enjoy the game this weekend while others, chosen at random, stay on dead servers? Do you people not want my subscription money?

Thanks for the update. Just start sending the rest of east pve to Tarro Blood and we'll all be happy.
That's why they call it space, cause there is so much of it.

So does that mean there will be transfers today or will we be waiting until some unspecified time next week?

Because it wont be a low pop after the transfers it will be a higher pop than your current server.

Everyone is HURTING from the lowpop servers just be thankful that we're no longer begging for action to be taken, they are in the process of doing and now they have to take into account server Queue's on the destination servers to see if they need increase the cap etc.

Give 'em a break, at least they're actually responding to people now. This is about the community not you and your guild... we're making progress where we'll actually get to HAVE a community.

Be patient, I know we're being patient on our dime but better late than never.
