This is quite interesting, it seems that three of the four destination servers in North America are in the top 4 most populated. One of them is the Fatman, for example. This means that it is unlikely for us to become a destination server, since they seem to want to send people to already highly populated servers. According to torstatus.net, we are in a 26 way tie for the lowest population (as of this post). We'll just have to wait and see.

If we have to transfer and Princessluna is taken; I really hope my legacy is taken as well.

Seems odd that they don't allow us to rename that as well seeing as how some people use it to form something with their regular name.


If not then I'll most likely quit the game once my subscription ends.

EDIT: NVM read the FAQ and you will be asked to pick a name no matter what. Guess I'll be staying then =D
I'll prob pick the same name and legacy I use on my BH on Fatman then.

So basically, if we have to transfer to a new server, we have to pick new names and legacy names if they are taken....fuck that. I will just stay on Vornskr, or transfer one of my alts if I am so inclined.

I understand why they're doing this, but goddamned if it isn't annoying as shit.

I'll probably just end up transferring my 8 toons over to whatever server we end up on so I can have them all in the guilds.

We need to have a plan in place before we're forced to. The manes and maybe even the RGs need to have a Mumble chat about this just so there's no confusion. Also, we need to make sure our guild name isn't taken anywhere else (I don't think it is). As for individual names and Legacy names...yeah. That sucks ass. I don't think it's going to affect me, but you never know.

Here's hoping this goes as well as possible given the circumstances.

Now this is intriguing. According to torstatus.net, Lord Ieldis has more players than Begeren Colony. It makes me wonder if there are other criteria they are using to choose which servers are sources, and which are destinations. Either that, or torstatus.net is inaccurate.

We have, but I think having a plan in place once our number comes up will be to everyone's benefit. Very Happy

I remember them specifically saying in the Q&A that they will be looking into server communities as well (most likely via server specific forums). Hope that's a benefit to us as our forums are quite active.

But from the new batch there are about 5 source servers per destination, so probably not.

There are currently 2 PvE West Coast servers listed as destination.

Droga's Pleasure Barge
The Harbinger

I have reserved my names on both but I had to make some changes

The Harbinger

Iron-will - Inronwill (Voluntary improvement)
Timberwolf - Timberwulf
Filthyrich - Filthy-rich

Droga's Pleasure Barge

Timberwolf - Timberwulf
I also have 'Derpy' on this server so if we move I hope it's there. Derped!

(As far as unlisted servers go I also reserved Derpy on Master Gnost-Dural and Jekk'Jekk Tarr. Everywhere else was already taken, not surprisingly.)

I suggest everyone does this. I am also going to be transferring in a rolling system i.e. delete a reserved name - transfer - delete a reserved name - transfer and so on.

I really hope our server will be listed tomorrow. My subscription ends saturday and I want to know if I'm gonna renew it (aka I get either Princessluna or a name I like) or not.

Vornskr is one of 3 or 4 PvE West Coast left, so I would suggest reserving your name on Droga's Pleasure barge and The Harbinger, it seems unlikely that there will be another destination server, unless it actually is Vornskr.

On the contrary, I think there will be another destination server. Both Drooga's Pleasure Barge and The Harbinger were listed as "Full" on the TOR website last night. People were having to queue to get in on a Wednesday evening, being only the second day of transfers. There are seven west coast PvE servers left unlisted, there is no way they are going to fit all of them into the existing destination servers. Most likely they will compile those seven into one more destination server. I would be extremely happy with this outcome, as an overly full server would be just as bad as our current situation.

According to torstatus, three of those seven servers are ahead of us in population, but obviously not by much.

In case you want to reserve names, here are the seven servers:
Zakkeg Beast
Darth Sion
Vornskr
Veebo Lunx
Hyperspace Cannon
The Jekk'Jekk Tarr
Space Slug
Bold names are ahead of us in population.

I took long enough reserving my names on the two servers, I guess I will just go with the ones I actually use and can make different ones later.

As far as forum activity is concerned Veebo Lunx has none, Darth Sion has a little bit (one post today, otherwise everything in May) and Zakkeg Beast has about the same as us.

THE SUSPENSE IS KILLING ME! Herp!

Well, i've got my two mains reserved on Droga's and Harbinger. I'll worry about my alts later. This won't even matter if we're a destination server. Here's hoping!

Yeah, I don't understand their thinking here. If your server is chosen as an origin server, you're kind of forced to transfer off of it or you'll be left on a ghost town. If someone thinks it's hard to find a group now, try doing it in a week or two when everyone's gone. But they're funneling everyone into just a handful of servers, which is causing the opposite problem. Like Pinkie Pie said, the destination servers all have queues now in the middle of the week. Wait until the weekend, it'll be a huge pain just to log in to them. Call me impatient, but I'm not willing to pay $15 a month so I can sit and wait my turn to play a computer game. Especially when the stupid game crashes. I just don't understand how they think this is better.

Hi folks, just wanted to let you all know that we will be opening up more servers today. I also wanted to remind everyone that the opening of origin servers for free character transfers is now in the fine-tuning stage. We will be monitoring server populations and seeing how they stabilize. What this means is that, while we will open up more origin servers today, you're going to see fewer opening up this week and into the next. The weekend will also provide more data for us.
This to me says that the seven servers I mentioned probably won't be picked until next week. What it sounds like they are going to do is monitor Drooga and Harbinger over the weekend to see if they maintain their near-capacity populations. If they don't, then we will be transferred into one of them. If they do, then they will pick a third destination server from among the remaining seven.

It seems very unlikely that the two destinations will do anything but grow even further, but I can't really blame them for playing it safe.

They can increase the population cap,which is probably what they will do after monitoring.
