This is yet another example of how awful BW is at this. BW, lord love you but, you simply can't make a decent decision on so many things it's basically become a joke at this point.
I don't think I have ever (until this game) seen such a massive amount of things to continually irritate a customer base like BW has done since launch. This is self destruction on a very large scale. Since launch you have lost what.....?.......like half your customers? You continue to bleed subs because you continue doing things that irritate the heck out of your paying customers. It's sad really.
BW started this game off by telling people where they were going to be playing("assigning" guilds to servers).
Paying customers do NOT want to be "told" how to experience the game. I surely don't.
At any rate, this is going to become another one of BW's "little wrinkles" and "halfway" efforts that irritate the living **** out of some people and alienate another segment of their quickly dwindling population. I am absolutely astounded they still, 6 months later, haven't learned to stop pissing so many people off with almost everything they do. It's borderline amazing how consistently their decisions irritate such large chunks of the population....it's almost as if it's being done on purpose.(yes i know that's a ridiculous statement but, seriously, it does "seem" that way from the outside looking in) It's like they make their decisions to cater to the ease and QoL for their staff as opposed to their customers. Truly creating a legacy of failures at this point.
This certainly is not the best game ever made. Certainly not the most fun I've ever had gaming. BUT.....There is almost nothing out there that is better than this game right now(my opinion only obviously) and yet....people are still leaving in droves, literally entire guilds at a time? Why? How? What would/could possibly be attributed to this consistent exit of customers on a 6 month old game?
I know what is likely going to be the reason I end up leaving......I'll finally get sick of being irritated by them and stop giving them my money. Frankly, I'm only waiting on GW2 to see what my SWTOR lifespan is going to be.....D3 with no PVP is of zero interest to me so GW2 is all I see. Tera does not look better than SWTOR and nothing about it has swayed me to try it, so here I am, stuck as BW's pin cushion until GW2 gets a shot at my money. So very very sad that I'm only still here cuz there's nothing else right now, so I'm here by default only.....I wonder just how many others are like me....

Let's call this what it really is, it's not a "character transfer"... Its server merges. If the player base is not given a choice aside from ONE server... its a merge.

That is the big issue I believe, we get attached to the names of our toons and don't want to be forced into a new name.

It may help stop some flaming if they just whipped out the big list...we know they have one...and an approximate time frame.

Well, I dunno about others but that would stop me from being on this page.

Patience is a virtue. My server is like 3 people on republic fleet at any given time day or night and not on the list. I'm just waiting for ours to pop up. I would rather have them work out all the bugs with the first batch then open up more. Smart move imo.

Ok for all those people whining and crying about server transfers.....if you are not happy with how this is going...hit the my account button and unsub till you get what your looking for....if BW see that people are unsubbing then they may act upon it.

Otherwise i suggest you quit the crying whining and wait for your server to come up

you realise when WoW came out they completely re-worked the whole combat system and class system to what it is known by today right? many games have issues in their first year regardless of time money or company, get used to it, if you are going to guild wars then shut it and go dont burn forums of a community you no longer want a part of

Got my alternate names list ready, and my alternate Legacy last names list as well.

Hoping I'm origin, but ready to transfer.

Take all the time you need Bioware, I shall patently wait.

I'm hoping I'm destination! Have everyone else come to me! Which reminds me, I need to get all my things out of the guild bank and the GTN...
