Let’s translate from Bioware Bullshit into English.  We never had true “server transfers.” They were mergers.  Phased mergers, to be sure, but mergers nonetheless.  Now, the population problem has been fixed, enough dicking around, I want real transfers.

The whole damn point of server transfers (as opposed to mergers) is to have the option to play with certain specific friends of your choosing, not to join a bunch of random other people who are also transferred to the same place.  I’m mid recruiting for Snark Side, all the while thinking that it would be damn easier if we weren’t limited by the population of our server.  True, it’s a very large server, but that is irrelevant to any given person who is not currently on the server and would have to level up from scratch.  Some of our guildmates who had high level toons on other servers (pre-merger) and were hoping to bring them all together when we got “server transfers” – they’re shit out of luck because those toons ended up transferred (merged) to other servers.

Recruiting is hard.  Lack of server transfers makes it harder.  Being a GM super sucks.

Did I mention we’re recruiting?  (Seriously!)


Still Waiting for Real Server Transfers — 7 Comments

  1. I’m betting they’ll be rolling out server transfers as part of their new fancy cash shop, located right next the HK-51 emporium, and near the racks where Bioware’s dignity and credibility are being sold (50% off!).

    • I’d be pretty happy if server transfers were purchasable with cartel coins since I should have a shitton of them after it goes F2P.

  2. That’s the amount of coins netted for a constant subscription from launch till now? Great. I’ll most likely transfer over if they allow it, I follow all the Snark Side blogs and really enjoy the game, unfortunately all of my friends from SWG left the game very quickly and now i’m forever alone over on The Fatman.

    • I wouldn’t hold my breath about server transfers coming =/ it could be a long time. Most of our members had to level from scratch, which sucks, but we’re crazy crafters and when they hit 50, we helped them get raid ready so fast! But the guildies said “FFS don’t put THAT in the recruiting announcement or people will think that they are getting a free ride!” (But, you know, those unsavory free-ride-wanters aren’t reading the comments here, they’re too lazy, so it’s ok to mention it.)

  3. I’ll see how barren the PvE content on Fatman gets. I’m so very much hesitant to leave all my toons over there (4 50’s so far, 1 of each class). The server is primarily PvP obviously, but there are some quality PvE guilds, unfortunately they are all very hardcore, and although i possess the experience to play with them, i just can’t devote 5 days a week to raiding.

    I’ll probably roll up Valinar as a Commando Healer, and Perci as a scoundrel for you guys. It’s healers not tanks yer missing right?

    • Yep. Healers or dps or healer/dps. Make sure before you start leveling that our raid schedule works for you and you’d be interested in doing raids with us. And, of course, there’s the app (on the forum) and THEN a vent interview. The strict admission procedures were not my idea, but they are actually WORKING, so I’m pretty happy to jump through the hoops – or make others jump through the hoops. Har har. You see why I suck as GM?
