Hello, will there be paid transfers in the 1.3 patch or a patch to come?

Hello Lifenndason,

Thanks for joining us on the forums and asking your question! Here's our answer from the Character Transfer Service FAQ:

Quote:
When will any potential paid Character Transfer Service be available?

At this time we do not have a scheduled time frame for launch of a potential paid Character Transfer Service. However, we are committed to making improvements to the Character Transfer Service over time to provide players with a great gameplay experience. Please keep checking www.StarWarsTheOldRepublic.com for more information.
Feel free to continue your conversation, we just thought this information might be helpful!

Paid transfers not in the game encourages me to hold off and see if they get this done fast enough before I sub more months. If I'm not satisfied, that just means:

-1subscription.

Yeah I had all my characters on one server, got changed to another server and then the guild I was with is no more. I joined another guild because of a friend of mine, but they are on another server and I just don't feel like leveling another toon right now. I hope this decision comes quickly to SWTOR.

Ya Bioware for real you really need to get on this one asap. I was under the impression that 1.3 would enable this along with many others. I for one love this game but you are losing people because you don't have a simple paid character transfer service. Please rectify asap.

I have a legacy and 4 toons on Shien and refuse to transfer to Ebon Hawk, which is my free destination server. I am a solo PVE'er doing no PVP, WZ's, FP's or HM's so server pop is meaningless to me. The server i started playing on, Canderous Ordo, is where I have my other legacy and 5 toons--i couldn't care less about deleting a toon and losing a legacy name....what I do what to do is be able to transfer loot and goodies between all my toons and I am willing to wait, and pay if necessary, to someday soon have all my chars on Canderous
I swear on my medical license! The real one!

Hello, Bioware.

I already canceled my account once when you failed to provide a timeline for the release of the basic transfer service until the very last minute.

I will cancel again as soon as my month is up if you have not announced a date for the ability to transfer to a server of your choice.

Depending on how quick your turnaround is, I may never re-activate.

This is just to remind you that there is some actual cash riding on whether you quickly implement this service.

Hopefully sooner rather than later. I would like to transfer an extra character I created during the world event after 1.2 to my Pub server so I can give those characters the special items. Unfortunately my Pubs were on a light server and weren't able to get to Tatooine in order to participate. Ideally, in lieu of Paid Transfers, and account-wide storage bank would be ideal to solve issues such as this.

I am curious about this as well, while i thank you for placing us on more populated servers, i would much rather go to a server of my choosing, rather a server of my choosing that has high populations, I don't mind paying to move but the server i was moved to was not my intended destination, but a forced move, and again i am grateful to be on a server that has more people i still would like to know a date or time frame in which you will be allowing us to do so, but honestly i wouldn't be surprised if i didn't get a response to this because of the lack of information we receive about events prior to them arriving.
