Swtor consolidating servers

Starting next week on June 12th, 2012, we’re allowing character transfers to occur between selected servers in order to provide a better gameplay experience for our players by ensuring population balance across the service.

Game Update 1.3 is focused around group content, with the Group Finder designed to help you enjoy Flashpoints, Operations and Heroic Missions in groups.

Bio Ware Edmonton and Montreal general manager Aaryn Flyn stressed that all was well at the renowned RPG house.

In his post addressing the future, he revealed that Bio Ware was working on a new IP for next-generation machines.

And then last night, Bio Ware's doctor bosses Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka announced their departure from Bio Ware.

By centralizing our player populations on these higher population destination servers, we feel that we can offer our players the best possible Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ experience.

As a result, you may find that some of your characters are now located on a different server.

Players who are anxious to ensure they end up on a heavily populated server will naturally flock to what is perceived as the 'biggest' server, potentially over-populating that server.

This eventually leads to the exact situation we're trying to move away from.
