Begin your transfer now!
To start the character transfer process, login to your account, click My Account and then click
Character Transfers in the left hand menu. From there you will be able to
select Start a Character Transfer and see if you have any characters eligible
for transfer to selected servers.
By transferring a character, you are moving them from an
origin server to a destination server. Your character will no longer be
available to play on your origin server, but will be available for continued
play on your destination server. There are some limitations on what is
transferred with your character, and you may be required to rename your
characters on arrival to your destination server due to potentially conflicting
character or Legacy names.
…Therefore, we made the decision to strictly limit the
initial phase of the Character Transfer Service to only allow transfers from
selected groups of origin servers (where you're moving a character from) to
selected individual destination servers (where you choose to move a character
to) based on the player populations of the origin and destination servers. In
some cases, a large number of origin servers will be eligible to move to a
single destination server. In others, very few origin servers will be
transferring to existing high population destination servers. Remember, the
goal here is to push almost every destination server to an active population
We're sure many of you are interested to learn which servers
are eligible for outgoing transfers and which servers are eligible to receive
transfers. However, because the process will be gradual, we cannot provide that
information in advance. […] Listings will become available as servers become
eligible for transfer. […] You will not find your PvE characters transferred to
a PvP server, or vice versa!
There are also some restrictions to this character transfer
process, which will be more fully detailed in a forthcoming FAQ. For those who
have unlocked Legacy abilities, your Legacy will be transferred to your new
server and your unlocks will be available there too. If you have already
unlocked your Legacy on your destination server, the higher level Legacy will
take precedence. For guild members and masters, you will not be able to
transfer your guild as a whole to your new server; instead you will need to
reform it. […] If your transferred character’s name conflicts with an existing
name on a destination server, you will be asked to rename your character. In
the case of Legacy names, unless you have unlocked your Legacy on your
destination server, you will need to rename your Legacy upon transfer (although
you may pick the same Legacy name as on your origin server, if available).
We understand that some of you may be looking to consolidate
characters from a variety of origin servers onto one server, and others may be
anxious to move to a specific server to be with friends. With the restrictions
of this initial service, that may not be possible. We still believe that you
will enjoy playing on a higher population server and hope you'll take advantage
of the service, but you won't be forced to transfer. Future versions of the
Character Transfer Service may allow more options in your choice of destination
servers and may require a transfer fee.
We're in the final stretch of testing the service, and our
release is now June 12th, 2012. Game Update 1.3 will be along not too long
Hey folks, since you’re reading this you may likely have heard that we’ve done some restructuring here on the SWTOR team. Sadly, we are bidding farewell to some talented, passionate and exceptionally hard-working people who helped make SWTOR a reality. Impacting people’s lives this way is always very hard, but we’re ensuring the affected people are treated with dignity, fairness and respect.
Looking back at launch, we all came together and did something historic. We executed one of the largest, most successful and stable launches of any MMO yet in industry history. That is not an easy feat for any development team or company and we are humbled and honored by our fan community’s strong support both at launch and beyond.
Looking forward, the studio remains vibrant and passionate about our many upcoming initiatives for Star Wars: The Old Republic. We still have a very substantial development team working on supporting and growing the game, and we feel we are in a strong position, with your continued involvement and feedback, to continue to build Star Wars: The Old Republic as one of the most compelling and successful online experiences in the world today. There are many strong initiatives planned for cool new content and new features that we’re excited to tell you about in the upcoming weeks and months.
Rest assured that we remain dedicated to delivering a high quality service in SWTOR to you, our fans, and we will continue to support and grow Star Wars: The Old Republic over the weeks, months and years to come.
Greg and Ray
