Additionally, players need not worry about rushing to transfer as free character transfers between selected servers will remain available for as long as it is needed to help balance server populations naturally. Rest assured that if we ever decide to stop this free character transfer service, players will be given plenty of advanced notice.

M.Steiner wrote:There is, however, a way around the latter (leaving a note on the MOTD). There is a way to move without disbanding the guild which would require me promoting someone else to GM before I transferred. However, we would not be regranted our guild bank and all its slots on the new server if we did that and would have to repurchase them all. If we want our guild bank restoring it requires a disband. - Considering I spent over 3mil of my credits expanding our bank for us I'd rather that not go to waste unless one of you is sitting on around 3.6mil and will mail me that to rebuy them straight away
I'm perfectly happy to leave the Bloodworthy guild intact with an alt or someone else as GM, that way we can leave a note on the MOTD saying we have moved (if we do) for any inactive members who may return one day. That is if somebody already has 3.6mil to immediately rebuy 3 bank vaults for us on Tomb of Freedon Nadd. - It cost me 600k to open a bank which comes with 1 vault, a further 1mil for the second vault and then vault 3 cost another 2mil. I do have enough credits myself to do this but I do not want to have to buy them a second time. I know it's only virtual money at the end of the day but a lot of time & effort too, afterall those kinda credits were hardly loose change. Instead I would rather we had them regranted for free which is only possible with a disband so that didn't go to waste. Then I could spend the cash I have on the 4th vault I have been saving up for us with the help of a couple of others (you know who you are ). That is, as I say, unless someone else can come forward with 3.6mil to rebuy them for us as soon as we are setup again. Hell, call it 3mil and I'll pay another 600k.

I'm thinking that if the guild moves I may well transfer my Inquisitor but leave my Agent on Bloodworthy. I really do not want to go back to the horrible levelling experience that was in place when the server was busy. We'll see though - still not decided yet.
M.Steiner wrote:Another thing to note is something I touched upon earlier. With staying everything remains up in the air. The server may be dead right now and it may even stay that way for the foreseeable future but it isn't guaranteed to stay that way. Once BioWare have finished with these manual transfers there's the possibility of them either merging Bloodworthy with other similar servers to bring them all back up, forcing the few remaining players godknows where and closing it or doing the same but making it a server just for the f2p lvls 1-15 next month.
Just another reason why I was against waiting to see really because everything about Bloodworthy and its future is uncertain now. Part of me doesn't believe they will pay the upkeep of a server just for a handful of people to run around when they could shift them elsewhere and close it or merge it with others. To me it wouldn't make any sense at all for them to keep a server like that open just when like yesterday and today I was the only person on the entire fleet multiple times when I logged in throughout the day. Total waste of money and resources and these servers wouldn't benefit from any future content they implemented which required a playerbase. Just no sense.
If that's what you decide to do and you're happy with taking that risk (and anyone else who may feel similar) that's up to you at the end of the day though mate . I just think because your reason for possibly leaving a character there would be the fact that it is (dead) quiet and you prefer it like that isn't guranteed to stay that way depending on what they do. Being the case that entire reasoning for staying will have ultimately meant nothing if they merge to populate it or they shove you wherever they want to and yet you'd have missed the opportunity to move that character over with the guild too should we have done. This is the problem when they don't come out and lay their current and future plans for the transfers out, so much is uncertain and risky with servers like ours now.
