Wouldn't it make more sense to upgrade the server capacity first....make sure that's working ok....and then do the forced transfers the following week? Given the frequency with which patches and updates seem to lead to more errors and bugs, this just has disaster written all over it.

Also, not a fan of the duplicate legacy name changes. There have to be a small percentage of players who are playing on the low pop servers still and have legacy names that might conflict with a legacy name on the server they are being sent to. Now, everyone gets to re-name their legacy and we're going to have duplicate legacy names continuing into the future? Great....don't be surprised if you go onto the fleet and half the people on the fleet have the legacy name "Skywalker". They should have just thrown these people with legacy re-names some bone instead of watering down the whole legacy name thing.

They are indeed doing more consolidations, and they are forced NOT optional.

20 servers now, world wide it appears.
+1 Good find. And I agree this paves the way at last for paid transfers.

The number of destination servers has decreased.

"Drooga's Pleasure Barge" which was a destination server for "Veeboo Lunx" is going to be transferred to "The Harbinger".

*sigh* transferred my toons once ( and lost names ) guess I am going to transfer this set again ( and loose names again) Oh joy!

I wonder what torstatus will look like tomorrow?!?

The biggest problem with this huge consolidation is the number of people who are going to lose their names. If it had been simply forcing the locked servers to transfer it would have effected far fewer people (still sucked though), but now thousands will lose their names.

Bioware needs to give us non-unique first names now too. They need to overhaul the entire nameing system it is so fing broken at this point it is not even funny.

The easiest way to figure things out. Check out this matrix, if you're not on one of the servers with big names to the right of the list, you're getting moved.

If it works like it did with their test high pop servers it went by how long the person had the name. Granted in that case things were different we weren't being forced onto an existing server.
