Signed as well. It's a silly thing not to offer.

I'm literally begging for EAware to offer Paid Character Transfers BEFORE THE EXPANSION. idk how they expect me to enjoy new content without transfers.

I, (along with MANY other folks) would like BW and/or EA to comment on this ASAP. The subscription players deserve a HARD answer. Not the typical "It's something we are looking into for the future". Give us what is going on with this. What sort of discussions are BW/EA having? Why is there a hold up? What is holding this up? It's sad when a company like Funcom has better customer relations than BW. My 2 cents worth.

V/r,
Frustrated SUBSCRIPTION player.

I have a level 50 that I wish to transfer to a server that my brothers and friends play on. I would be more then happy to shell out 25 bucks for a transfer. Why Bioware is not offering this feature is absolutely beyond me!

You have to code this process and automate it...it's not like someone can get out of bed one morning...snap their fingers...and *poof* it's automagically done.

I don't know if it's been said in this thread, too many pages to read through. Bioware has stated (either in a Developer Diary Video or in the recent State of the Game post, I don't recall) that 1.7 includes the entire character transfer infrastructure which had to be rebuilt completely from scratch- which is why Character Copy for test servers became unavailable.

Subsequent patches _will_ see Character Copy reinstated. This was a necessary step in order to allow paid character transfers. We will likely see them either just before or just after the expansion.

If its going to take long, I hope they delay the expansion to get character transfers done first.

BW is leaving cold hard cash on the table. Baffling. I'll pay for transfers with no hesitation. GIVE US PAID TRANSFERS NOW GOSH DANG IT!

Fine, OK... if ya'll want to start with transfers only to lower population servers, cool by me. I want all my toons on Gav Daragon anyway! ;-)
