Star Wars: The Old Republic consolidates servers, all characters migrated

Wednesday, 19th September 2012 00:09 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Star Wars: The Old Republic has migrated all players onto high-population servers in a bid to end the MMORPG’s tumbleweed feeling.

BioWare began testing its Mega Server tech last week, and said in a weekend update that destination servers had been fully upgraded to meet the demands of migrated players.

Players had been encouraged to take advantage of free character transfers over the last few weeks; those who failed to do so have been forcibly migrated, according to PC Gamer.

“If your characters have been moved, you can find their new location on the server selection screen by clicking on the “Characters” column. Please be aware that no characters have been deleted as part of this process – all of your characters are still available to you and are ready to play,” BioWare said.

“However, you may find a red exclamation point next to your character’s name on the character selection screen. This means that due to the consolidation, you will have to rename that character.”

An FAQ goes into detail on how renaming candidates were selected among other useful information, which may comfort you in the wake of that most frightening of concepts: change.

    Pitty. If the game had that feature from the beginning, I guess it would have done way better.

    Then again, it only means you have more people in the fleet, since there is no reason what so ever to return to any other planet. Maybe the end game planets for Missions and harvesting, but everything in between is more or less just like… like… well most mid-level leveling content from every other game (not GW2, since that one really made a cool call with the level adjustment… and maybe Rift with their mentoring thing).

    Lets face it. The only way this game can make fleets feel busier is by merging more servers. It certainly wont be through increasing the player base.

    Not even by going F2P will boost this outdated mess. Sure, they may see a small surge of returning players just to see what the fuss is about but the interest will soon vanish, once the game returns to its pedestrian approach to releasing content.
