at that rate its going to take longer than a week I imagine


Some updates and logistical info shared by the dev team or mods would be helpful though I dont imagine it will be forthcoming

That may be. However, it still does not help the people that do not want to go to the most populated servers and sit in queues. Do those people now suck it up and play alone until forced to move? No, I suspect that those people will quit instead of wait for "soon". I thought the ultimate point of this was to retain subscribers. By giving people no choice in some cases, and giving others a head start in other cases, it will serve to alienate a portion of the dwindling played base.

All I'm saying is that Bioware needs to stop making decisions for us and let US choose where to go. They did it with Pre Order guilds, now they are doing it with transfers. Not everyone applauds when choice is taken away.

Will those of us who are American who ended up on a Euro server with the rest of our guild ever be able to transfer our Euro characters/legacy over to a US server? Hope of this is about the only thing that keeps my sub going. Everyone left the Euro server. I want to play on the US server now for better ping but I have a full account of characters some at war hero level so just starting over is not an option. I'd rather cancel my account and find something different to play than start over.

Yeah if you look at 8 per day for NA and you are moving them to the top 20 server that will take over 2 weeks at this pace.

I am perplexed why they didn't move the lowest population servers first? I'm trying to be somewhat patient, but I have been on a dead server for months. 20 on fleet in the best of days isn't fun for a pvper. We have been having 40-50 people in the game during prime time. Welcome to Thendy's Noori. Every single match we play the same pvp group. This has been going on for weeks now.

It’s not like this is a real free character transfer, it’s just a server merger masquerading as a character transfer.

You got no real choice in the matter if you’re on server “A” you get to move to server “B” ….big woop ….thats a server merger …making us ring a bell first and say “ding…ding…ding” please move me does not make this anything else but a server merge.

It's only EU > EU and US > US atm. I doubt that's going to change until paid transfers, if even then.

Most likely because people on those servers are already used to getting the shortest straw so few more won't make a difference.
