well i just noticed something interesting.
its sunday night 1 oceanic server is heavy (Gav Daragon)
all other servers are standard or light.
So I ask the question is it too costly to run a single oceanic server? I think one combined oceanic server should be given a go for 6months.
And please add server transfers to the cartel market.

Also would appreciate if Elysiah and jackdaley would post their toon names and servers. I'm going to add them to forum ignore list but first would like to ignore them in game too. If I wanted to play with trolls I'd go back to WoW.

So some friends and i have a couple of questions regarding these mergers and transfers, as do a lot of the people in this thread it seems, so i thought i might try and consolidate some major ones into a single post in hopes that they can be replied to all in one go.

1. Will we be able to keep our legacy name and level?
2. Will we be able to keep our guild name and vault?
3. Will there be a way to transfer an entire guild at once during the 'select your server' phase?
4. Will you make some form of exception for names having to change? such as longer played time gets preference, or subscriber names get preference over F2P names?
5. If we have additional character slots unlocked on our APAC servers, will that unlock carry across during the merge? some of us have 16-20 characters.
6. Will the transfer cause downtime in character or account availability? If so, how long could we expect?
7. Why do kids love the taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunch?

There are no answers on those yet, that I'm aware of.

All these questions, particularly the answers to the Guild questions as a Guildmaster. And names are very important to me I build an existence of character which adds to the feel of the game.

Aye, kinda guessed so. Perhaps Eric could use it as an idea of the kind of 'civilised' questions we are asking though, and answer them sometime in the future.

Lol the 'strawman argument' rears its ugly head.
I swear ever wannabe intellect comes up with this argument at some stage.

It would depend on what type of lease they have set up - operating or finance.
But what was your point again?
