Hey folks,

I know we have been a bit quiet about our plans for your consolidations and although I don’t 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.

    He-he, I was under the impression that the next content update was suppose to be "Cartel Market Free" . image

    That said, I do realize that many players have been waiting for this feature for quite some time. it should prove interesting if and how the server populations will shift when this goes live. No matter, EA/Bioware stands to make quite a lot of coin on this market offering.

    They have yet to reveal all of what will be in 2.2. I will be disappointed if what is on the test server now is all there is to it; but, things have been said that indicate more is coming.

    Not going to make and "coin" from me. I expect that when someone says FREE to play that they mean it is in fact FREE. Before anyone jumps on  that last statement, I am being saying this somewhat tongue in cheek. I know that "f2p" is NOT free. However, it seems dishonest to call it such.

    Character transfer from APAC starts on June 4th. Folks can transfer to any server they wish.

     

    I know you have been waiting a bit for an update and I wanted to pop in and do exactly that. Starting on Tuesday, June 4th, you will all be allowed a free one time transfer for each character you have on an APAC server. In the last update I gave I told all of you that we were expanding where your one-time transfer could go to include all NA-West servers. After seeing quite a few requests to expand it further, we are going to allow you a one-time transfer to any SWTOR server. To reiterate, starting on Tuesday, June 4th, you will be allowed a one-time transfer for each character you have on an APAC server to any other non-APAC server.

    Thanks!

    They need to expand this to a 1 time transfer from any server to any server.  I know they would not get money for a transfer if they made it free, but I think they should do it--for what little it is worth.

    “It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.”

    Paid character transfer detailed revealed:

     

    Hey folks,

    I know there have been quite a few questions around paid character transfers so I spent some time rounding up the answers to the more heavily asked ones and here they are! If there are any that I missed please feel free to post them in this thread and I will see what I can find out.

    How much do transfers cost?
    Paid character transfers cost 1800 Cartel Coins per character. The purchase must be made using Cartel Coins.

    How do I transfer a character?
    Once the service is live in 2.2, you will be able to go to your account page here on swtor.com and transfer from there.

    What happens if there is a name collision?
    If your character name is already taken by another player on your new server, you will need to rename your character. Your character will be “flagged” for a rename once you login.

    Will my Legacy, Achievements, and Collections all transfer with my character?
    Yes! All of your Legacy unlocks, Achievements earned, and triggered Collections will be waiting for you.

    What happens if I have a Legacy on both my source and destination servers?
    Whichever Legacy is of a higher level will take precedence and become your new Legacy. This has no affect on unlocks, the unlocks from both Legacies will combine. For example: You are transferring a character from the Bastion to the Harbinger. The character you are transferring from the Bastion is in a level 27 Legacy. Currently on Harbinger you have a level 13 Legacy. After the transfer you will now have a level 27 Legacy on Harbinger which combines the unlocks from both servers.

    Is there a way to transfer a guild?
    There is currently no method in place to transfer an entire guild at one time. Each person must transfer their characters individually and recreate their guild on the new server.

    I hope that clears some things up! Let me know if there are any major questions still pending that I missed.

    I have to say it still amazes me that people are surprised at the crap that comes out of this game. I wrote it off long time ago, and i wasted 150.00 on the collectors edition.

    The only thing that's amazing is people who think its amazing that other people actually don't feel the same way they do about something. image
