I find the $50 to transfer off the closed servers in SWG exortionate, and discriminitive.
It is not the players choice to transfer, but SOEs from them shutting it down, and should not charge for it. If SOE chucked players to any server, and the player did not want to be on that server, then it would be the players choice, but the way they are doing it is wrong.
It is not the players fault if they happened to choose the wrong server and some are no doubt clueless or unabble for whatver reason to resub by Oct 15th, and even then it sucks forcing people to resub when they don't want to. Some may even be waiting for the Death Troopers and/or GCW update before resubbing, and only inetend paying $15 then, only willing to pay more if they like these udpates, but if characters are stuck in limbo on a closed server, then will not be able to find out.
Also, for some, they may not even realise they have to pay the $50 fee, and I doubt SOE will put up a warning something like "This account has characters on closed servers.If you resubscribe, and want to carry on using these character, you will need to pay $50 to do so"
Another nail SWGs coffin.
