SWTOR Q&A Discusses Server Migration, Stability and More

Posted Mon, Jul 30, 2012 by Martuk

Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) began voluntary server transfers last month as part of a move to help increase server populations on destination servers. Remaining characters that did not take advantage of the move will be shuttled off to other destination servers later. In this week’s SWTOR Community Q&A, Principle Lead Systems Designer Damion Schubert offered some additional information about the upcoming move and where the remaining characters may end up following the transition.

Once we do automatic transfers, we will be doing everything possible in order to maintain the basics of the current ruleset as possible - PvE vs PvP, regional choice, language (for Europe); so in many cases, you should have a good idea of which populations you are likely to end up with. Another top concern is trying to help the populations that result have a good factional balance. We will give out a specific list once we are closer to implementation of this plan - watch for more info soon!

The Q&A also touched on server stability improvements, Corellia lore, Legacy changes and what to do with all that leftover Rakghoul DNA from SWTOR’s first world event.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
