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.
