Sorry but just face it. It's going to happen. They aren't going to keep a server open for 2 or 3 people who want to keep their names.

Not trying to be an *** but you might as well face it and take matters into your own hands before they force something on you.



They've already announced it, all none destination servers will be closed as some unspecified point in the future.

What you won't see is the word "merger" used anywhere. Because this isn't a merger... It is a spontaneous and unexpected player driven migration.
well they can't use the word merger. Look how everyone freaked out when they said level 1-15 would be F2P? People where acting like it was the end of the world. If they ever say the word merger it will be even worse.

They need to give us choices then, i have charactors on 5 servers they want to give me a tranfer for, but they only give me 1 choice. well geeewiz, First off they all wont fit , Second why the heck would i want to have 2 or 3 of the same type charactor on the same server? just give me a couple choices,is that so hard? YES! according to the response i got from support today:

"We understand that you wish to transfer your character to a destination server that has not been assigned to your origin server. We regret to say that this option is not a part of the initial Character Transfer Service. Characters on a specific group of origin servers will only be able to transfer to specific individual destination servers at the moment"

Even though we didn't want to transfer my wife and I did. I emailed bioware about it and the email I got back basically told me that while we weren't forced to move the server wasn't going to stay open and that the window for free transfers was limited. After that we'd have to do a paid transfer to get off the server.
Such a lot the gods gave to me—to me, the dazed, the disappointed; the barren, the broken.

It's bizarre though, this is and always has been server mergers........ not calling it that doesn't change a thing.

But you're completely right it's all about spin and perception, I was always puzzled about them refusing to refer to SWTORs RvR as "RvR" (when EA are the trademark holders), but in the end they can say they never actually promised RvR and it would be the technical truth.

They've done some really dumb things over the course of developing and launching the game, but I honestly can't see them forcing you to pay to get off a server they're about to close, considering a CSR in another thread said they wouldn't delete any characters.

Just an FYI, their transfer page has listed this as a merger ever since they announced the second phase.

That is what I was told in the email. That free transfers were a limited time offer and after that it would be paid transfers.
