I'm being held back from raiding because of this.
I highly doubt you are being held back from raiding because you have 2 50's on another server. If you are being held back because your friends/guild are min/max'ers and require all gear to be augmented, that has nothing to do with your 50's on another server. Before you start complaining that you NEED those 50's for their crafting skills, I'm betting that you had plenty of time and opportunity on your current server to level toons with those same crafting skills. If you are going to complain about a lack of credits to purchase augment kits/augments, it's not like BW dropped this on you last minute. There has been plenty of time and ample opportunity to farm credits in order to be in a better position, financially.

TLDR: I'm betting it has more to do with a lack of effort on your part than a lack of paid transfer's on BW's.

It should have free transfer all the time. You could transfer free once each 15 days or a month. And you think it's weird and no company do that?
It isnt true, rift you can free transfer once a week.

I think before offering paid transfers.. BIOWARE needs to display a more accurate POP number for each server..

Why? Last thing i want to see is ppl complaining they (paid) transferred to another dead server or to another over populated one..

Guys they totally borked the free transfers. To over populated now. Why would you pay to move only to have to wait in a Que to get into the game.

"Settle In" I hope that means large group of peeps quit so the server will be more stable

With respect, I don't see why they would. We know this is going to end with a lot of servers being fully merged. Why would they let people pay to go where they want, only to have them kvetch about being merged later, to possibly where they didn't want to go?

Not offering them makes total sense at this specific point in time. Figure a couple months after they finally announce what servers are shutting down. Only then can the give you a menu of what places you could go to. And in truth, that is only fair to those of us that accepted the writing on the wall and bailed on the "origin" servers.

Not true. I just recently had transferred after re-subbing. If they stopped the transfer a week before I came back. I came back on Tuesday. Then I would have been lost. BTW my old server had maybe ONE person or three on Imperial fleet.

My new server is always heavy. A big improvement.

Every server has them.

But just because you made a quick decision doesn't mean it's the best choice for them to immediately jump into paid transfers.
Friend reference, you get 7 daysof free subscription,
free character transfer, and items mailed to all your characters.

I'm amazed you guys are so willing.. no, eager to throw more money at BioWare for a service that hasn't run it's full course yet. All they've done so far is overpopulate a few, select servers for free. I'm still waiting for the chance to consolidate my characters and finally end up on the same server as friends from other games for free. This issue was due to the ill-advised way BioWare handled the servers at launch. Maybe once that is corrected a paid system would make sense. Before then, we really need the opportunity to resolve this on-going, known issue.

After all I've paid so far (and continue to pay) there is no way I'm going to pay extra money for that resolution.

You shouldn't either.

Once that issue is resolved, BioWare, make 'em pay. Not before.

Funny. I thought the implementation of the Cartel Store was the Rise of the Hutt Cartel. And no, I do not like what that story has to offer. I keep getting screwed in it.

Yes, because it's reasonable to expect someone to level the exact same character, exact same spec, and be the same in every regard, get a full set of PVP/raid gear again. Totally reasonable.

No, this is on BW's part. A person should not be expected to play the exact same experience multiple times.
