So will other servers be announced throughout the week or every week or like are they waiting to see how those listed today will preform?

I didn't see any announcements on like what the timeline is going to be.

JC and TF are the most dense servers in NA.

WHY THE HECK transfer people there.

Why not save other servers like Shadow Hand?
Because the servers that are transferring to JC and TF are completely dead, so they deserve a thriving community.

Darn.
No they are not. They are excluding EU RP-PvP.

I have a lot of respect for BW starting the process gradually, with a small number of servers. This way, they can quickly address any issues, give people individual attention, and make it easier and smoother for the next wave - that is, for the majority of players involved.

This is a good practice, both in community support and in software development.

It does say more servers will be added to the list as they work out the current 4 servers.

I guess people can't wait?
hmm.
No we can't, I haven't played in 3 months because of this issue, the wait should be over.

i havent complained at all, ive been patient, but this is the last straw. im complaining because ive been playing on a dead server for months now and im sick of it. and im sick of paying bioware to ignore me... think ill just quit paying them all together.

They don't need to be transfered to JC and TF. They need to be transfered to servers that can be saved.

Are we ALL going to end up on JC and TF in NA?

Just shut it down. I'm sick of this biofail.....

If they just bombed transfers to each server, you'd have log in issues, crashing issues etc. Think about people leaving a burning building, if everyone tries to bolt for the door, it gets jammed up and everyone dies. If you just leave calmly, things work out great. It will be a matter of a day or two before most transfers are done. If your still playing this game then surely you can wait that long to once again enjoy having people to play with and a sense of community.
My math. There is in fleet on most light servers 40 people (high estimate) for about 8 hours. Figure about 320 people is my estimate and another 320 for the rest for the day. That is about 1280 people a server. That is about 153,600 active players on the minor servers.

I think this game has about 500,000 players.

Your talking about roughly 5,000 people who could move.

The fundamental problem people like me see is abandoned characters are not contributing to the other server unless you can unify under a single legacy. Those of us who moved when we started having issues simply queuing for warzones are not inclined to go to some other new server and start over again those character(s) and legacy lines. For me I surrendered to population issues at 1.2.

If they don't get this moving they run the risk of not populating the servers. People are going to look at the options before moving and with this sort of schedule how do you expect them to see more people? They will check the boards, maybe make an alt, then might move.

Way to slow to be successful in my opinion.
