Transfer Service is Perfect

I was one of the people who was against transfers. I was in favor of mergers for various reasons. Bioware deserves credit for the transfers.

The total time it took to get my toons transferred was under 30 seconds. You are up and running instantly. There is definitely excitement being on a new server and having (I am a PvP player) miniscule queue times. I sense some good rivalries brewing between servers. My guess is that we will get more servers to transfer to our destination server.

The only things you need to do are transfer all your toons if you want your legacy buffs. If you leave one on the old server you don't get the buff. And, you need to select your interface editor again, your keybinds are all saved. (Client side or they did it for you) Last tip, remember to remove everything from the GTN and get all your mail.

I think this is the start of positive things. I am looking forward to rated warzones.

Bring on the hate.

You select the server and take a look to the right. You will then click on the character

The transfer tool is indeed well done and Bioware definitely deserves kudos for it. I was never against transfers per se, I actually think it's a service that all MMO's should have. I simpy disagreed with their philosophy on Mega-servers vs xserver LFD. They've made their decision though, and I accept it and will give it an honest try. As for the transfer tool itself, maximum kudos. Very easy to use tool and it happens fast. I understand the impatience of those who are on servers that aren't on the list yet, but I also understand Bioware's decision to do it in phases.

I was wondering how that worked, the FAQ wasn't clear on it.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

Transfered all of my toons off The Defenestrator and onto Jedi Covenant. It went smoothly other than that it says I have 4 toons on the server(jedi covenant) and I only have 3 but it doesnt harm me so...whATEVER. And I wanted to be on Droogas or Canderous Ordo but its ok. This is fine.

Thanks Bioware.

I think the pace will pick up fast. Phases was smart, if there were issues it would only have effected a few as opposed to all. It's obviously an automated process that works, so I imagine the pool of servers will increase dramatically with minor increases to wait to wait time.
