It’s done, folks. If you have an active account of Star Wars: The Old Republic, you are most likely eligible to transfer your character to one of the 23 destination servers.
Surprisingly, all the panelist for The Republic owned main characters on origin servers. Everyone of them transferred, even though both Ed and Larry played on relatively large servers. However, it’s safe to say that everyone enjoys playing on a massive server. Justin and Larry report numbers upwards of 600 (two instances of about 300 each) players on the fleet, the activity hub for SWTOR. Our panel also describes the actual transfer process as being extremely smooth and fast. Justin says it is the fastest transfer he’s ever experienced — literally done in seconds — faster than World of Warcraft. Looks like SWTOR‘s better than WoW at something.
Unfortunately, the server consolidation was not without hiccups and fallout. Our panel of experts — Justin Lowe of Darth Hater, Larry Everett of Massively, and Ed Park of Taugrim — gathered by the Gary Gannon explain the good, bad, and ugly of the recent server transfers in the number one Star Wars: The Old Republic show on the internet, The Republic!
