These transfers stink. I got all pumped up at first, knowing I could finally get off of mine into another (for free too!), But then I find out that my server only leads to this other server I've never heard of! What the heck!?!

Yes, I highly enjoy being stuck on a fleet with 20 people while 95 % of the population, which ironically correlates with the amount that actually got to transfer, tells me to be patient.

So thumbs up on this end. O_o

I'm not enjoying transfers as much because bioware called it transfers instead of merges and I thought I'd be able to move any character to a certain destination server, but no. I can only move certain origin server characters to a certain destination server. Disappointed.

I didn't expect it to be such an instant-hitter. Well, it makes me happy. I'm glad everything is working out. For those who don't like them, oh well, at the least it beats being the one person on your fleet.
Ooh! In Elder Scrolls Online, I get magic spells and colossal PvP! That sounds cool, but one question, where do I get a lightsaber?

I too must say im not too happy so far. My server and 1 other pvp server have been left out in the cold. No word, no indication of if and when we will be able to transfer/merge with another server where there is a decent population. It would be nice if CS would let us know something, but they refuse to give any info on it, the thread just gets closed...

I guess I am one of the lucky ones. I got a server merge very early. Maybe thats because I'm on an RP server and merging the three was not a big problem.

But if you consider the amount of population amongst the PvP and PvE servers that is spread about. I would say thats still quite alot. Filling destination servers would have to be trickled in as people agree and move. Once they are happy that the server is stable or full, then move onto the next destination server. And so on.

If they moved everyone at the same time, it would be chaos. Thoes unsubed at the moment, I would say have a time for a while before the mergers actually stop and the Dev Team move them to a server of thier choice of whats left I suppose.

Servers are not closing down as the mergers go on, so I guess thats to give the unsubers a chance to make thier decision.

Any way, I hope those who have not got thier destination server yet don't have to wait much longer. And I hope it improves things for you like it did for me. Good Luck

Not enjoying the forced transfers one bit. Where's my choice, Bioware? Where's the choice of servers that I, as a subscriber, should have? Even $ony, with all their failings, never forced you to transfer to one specific server. So since EA is going to force-close some of the servers, where's my choice of where to go? And don't tell me you can't do it, it's a copy/paste-type procedure that takes all of 30 seconds, 45 if you're slow.
