Hello,

Its been a while since I have come to the forums, and I would like to know if anything has been said about whats going on with server transfers for individuals

I know that a lot of servers have been consolidated, however I have 3 level 50 characters on one server that are not on Jedi covenant, where my guild is
I don't see how anyone would trade a Windows PC for a $1500 mac. It's easy to use a mac, it's also easy to stick your hand in a wood chipper...

This was most recently discussed in the LiveStream Q&A last month, where the team said that paid transfers are nearly ready to go. A few more things need to be implemented first (with the implication being the microtransaction system for the Cartel shop) but that paid transfers would be coming "in the near future". Barring the unforseen, they might well launch with 1.5 and F2P.

A: Certainly we want to offer people the option to do character transfer as a paid service. We got a little bit of additional work that is going to need to go in before we can actually offer it as a paid service but that is coming in the near future.

I'll sum it up so you dont have to watch the live stream.

"its a top priority for us, so it'll be out soon."

*way passed soon into the future* .....not here yet.

Please highlight the part of the QA where it says "nearly ready to go".

also note the f2p/cartel market is now live on test server.

there is no character transfer for sale. And just because you cant do that on test doesnt mean it wouldnt be in the market for testing purposes (UI, for instance)
