Server/Character transfers at this point are about as likely as me having a date for Valentines day. You would think though that with the amount of people that are asking them for transfers and are willing to pay for them that they would get this done.

Sr. Producer Blaine Christine had this to say in response to a question regarding when transfers would become available:


We would advise regularly checking www.swtor.com for any updates on this service.

Thanks for your patience.
Thanks for the same BS we've been asking for this service for over a year now. You forced transferd us twice allready the system is there all you have to do is open them up so we can put our toons where we want them and not one of your choosing if need to know how to do this have someone put a call into BLIZZARD and see if you can copy theirs.

Transfers will not become available in this game until no one cares anymore. Many of us are at that point now, just biding our time until Elder scrolls Online or some other MMO comes out from a company that's actually as good at systems design as we THOUGHT Bioware was. Ah we'll, live and learn. Who would have predicted they'd fail at something as simple as character transfers, which are pretty much standard in all other MMOs?

so that is around 18 months after launch right?

I would say its as expected. After all you would not let a new 50 come to TFB HM with you as they are derp

The indicated time frame is after transfers enabled to the PTS Q1/Q2 , and other servers is likely in Q3/Q4 this year.

They will not give a time frame any more concise as they do not know.

Edit - There is a big difference of doing a one off bulk manual transfer to having an ability for automated 24/7 transfers.

Extract from state of the game #2

Topic #3: Character Copy to Public Test Server (PTS) What is taking so long? Answer: As of the writing of this letter, we are in focused, internal testing on character copies for PTS. You should expect to see this come within the first part of this year. It will provide free character copies to PTS at any time (with possible restrictions dependent upon our testing needs at any given time). This will also lay the foundation for our new live character transfer system that will be coming later this year.

why internal testing for character copies to the PTS they can allready do that. as far as character transfers coming in q3/q4 that time frame will make them unneeded as most of us forced to re-roll on new servers will allready have our NEW characters min/maxed by then so what they need to do is get the service up and running now before its too late also they dont have to be 24/7 they can open up transfers now give us a time frame to move our characters to a server of OUR CHOOSING NOT THEIRS pretty sure that right there will be enough to put an end to these threads popping up every other day

Cant wait that looks so awesome ,, I'm so feed up with CS in this game ,,, I'm to the point of just giving up all to gather ,,, EA CS blows and this is the first ever EA game I have played and my last only reason I stay now is I like the while SW idea as a game that keeps me Playing .. as for EA CS its the worse I've seen any game I have ever played ...
