SWTOR Character Transfer System Coming Soon

Have you been suffering from a dead server in SWTOR? Long warzone queues? No one to group with? Our high pop server turned into a low pop server after the first couple of months and it hasn’t really recovered at all. The only time I see a high pop status is on a free weekend. It can get to be a bummer when you need a group and there’s not even anyone on the planet.

But BioWare might have an answer coming soon. In this week’s Q&A, the topic of server transfers was brought up again and senior producer Dallas Dickinson had some hopeful words:

“First we’ll have some targeted free transfers from/to specific servers, but that will be followed with a broader system where you can either take advantage of free promotional transfers to specific servers or paid transfers to the server of your choice,” he said.

“We know everyone has more questions about character transfer, and we’ll reveal more details closer to the launch date.”

He explains that this service will allow the most motivated players to get on a higher pop server. I’m not sure exactly how they will determine these transfers or who gets to move for free but it’s definitely a step in the right direction, I think.

What about you? If you were given a free transfer would you move? Would your guild considering transferring or would you leave the guild to make the move to a better server on your own? Something to think about while we wait for summer.
