No but that is now a year ago. We have had so many updates and changes since the and any one of them could cause thier origional transfer system to not work. Im not trying to defend BW. Thier treatment of the APAC has been appalling. Just suggesting we show a little more patience.

How much more patience do we have to show...how long till enough is enough? I am not even talking about the transfers or whatever being done here being put into action I am saying communication would go along way to garner at least some trust/respect for their community.

They say they are damned if they do post and damned if they don't, yet I feel if they at least came into the thread and regularly acknowledged their players during this process it would go along way in at least making us feel like we are valuable subscribers instead of the red headed stepchildren we seem to be.

I don't see how being ignored by the devs fosters any respect on either side of this issue.

So when do we get transferred en mass to the french servers?

And will it really cost us 2xs as much for an additional transfer?(in Euros, paid in cash at their offices in Texas(bring a picture ID issued by the Polish government)?)

This may be a few weeks more, maybe a few months. Either way, it'll be done when its done. Granted, their silence on the matter is annoying, and an update would be nice. I would rather bioware take a few months now to get organize and make sure transfers are smooth and efficient, not rushed. I would rather all my characters show up, with their hard earned gear, and not get lost in the cyber space. In the meantime, calm down. Eric isn't going to reply to this thread while the responses to it are childish at best. You say you don't get pm's back from the community? I have, but they were well constructed, thoughtful questions in regards to the server migration. They will post when server migrations are planned.

Patience.

It's good to see they are preparing us for US servers by making APAC server run like complete garbage.

Hurry up and merge the servers before SSSP comes out.

I'm on Dalborra and I really enjoy the low ping and the queues aren't bad at all. Maybe you're on the lower pop servers, but don't lump us all in together when I've been very happy with the service I've received.

500 on fleet with 150ms ping, I prefer 11ms and 100 on fleet.

Wow thats so useful when the instances on Fleet are limited to quite a bit less than 500, and you can't communicate across instances on Fleet. Most of those people might as well not be there.

Hey folks,

I know we have been a bit quiet about our plans for your consolidations and although I donít have any concrete details yet today, I wanted to pass on what I know. Our current plan is that next week we will start to give you details surrounding your free transfers off of the APAC servers. Specifically, we want to try to give you an exact date of when those transfers will start. We are still working through some issues with transfers so this could still change but that is our plan as it stands right now.

To be specific as I can be without setting anything in stone, our goal is to have you folks able to start transferring before 2.2 goes live. Again I need to reiterate, this is still subject to change as we lock things down.
