First, let me thank you, BW, for taking the server-populations-problem so seriously and making transfers available so quickly. I forgot how nice it is to play on a well populated server, SWTOR is so much mor fun now again !

I think you overdid it a little bit with a few servers. You moved most players to the few servers that already got a healthy population, overcrowding them quiet a bit now. Tomb of Freedon Nadd (EU) is already up to a 25min queue (and the Euro 2012 is still going on, there will be even more players in two weeks). I'd strongly suggest you give this some though.
Patience, my young apprentice! The Force WILL be with you ... eventually !

Still doesn't take longer than 8-10 mins to log on.

I'm still queuing, so far I am at 24 minutes. Yes I commend Bioware for merging servers, I don't however commend them on cramming everyone onto the already most popular server in the EU causing not only queues for logging on but also causing truck loads of lag on the server. The already glitchy lagging server is now even more glitchy and laggy!!!

Spreading users around, might have been a better choice.

Dude stop qq and be thankful for 1 time if u don't like the wait time just reroll on a medium server.
BTW bw is planning mega servers so be patient and wait till the transfers are over and we'll see what happens

I really hope so. Transferring from a low populated server to a server queue (and it's only monday night) is a bad thing.

There are a lot of people just logging in to get their characters transferred. Some people who may not have been logging much. I don't expect you'll see it this overloaded at the end of the week, especially if they raise the cap again.

They are; we were told this before transfers began.

I'm really disappointed the way this repopulation transfer been handled. You normally don't encourage customers to get to a point where they can no longer remain a customer( Why pay for something you can't use? The queues are inexcusable). If this is an example of planning with the customer in mind I only see problems ahead for the SWTOR community. If this doesn't clear up by the end of the week as previously (and hopefully) reported, I may bite the bullet and go elswhere. NOT my preferred choice but it beats twiddling my thumbs while they wonder why they didn't count the number of customers transferred!

I totally agree with the post below. A server with more people is nice, but now I can't play at all due to the very long queues on The Harbinger. Somebody was a little too aggressive with the server consolidation. Can't Bioware find a middle ground somewhere?
