Big Changes coming to SWTOR
« on: October 03, 2017, 10:32:02 PM »
Bioware will be coming out with a new update (more like an expansion) called The United Forces update.

The Good News

- New raid boss
- New Flashpoint
- New GSF map
- New Warzone
- The conclusion of the betrayer storyline
- The reintroduction of several old companions

The Bad News

- There is going to be a massive server merge
- 17 servers will merge into 5 servers
- 2 NA servers and 3 Euro servers

The Ugly News

- You will probably lose your names
- Players who sub and have the most play time will have priority to keep their names
- Characters that have not been played within the past 90-days and are below lvl 10 will lose their names
- Bioware will allow up to 52 characters per server
- Bioware will ensure that your highest legacy levels are maintained
- Guild names won't be affected

You can read it all here on the Official Website

I do not agree at all with your good bad and awful groupings.  The game has needed server merges forever.  I am happy they are finally doing it.  If I lose my exact name, who cares?   You can use spaces and special characters to get what you want.

More people means shorter queue times and more people to meet and compete against.  Heck I will probably go back to jung ma to get ready for the merge into servers where a lot of the old Jung ma people went to

its hard to know if this will be a good thing or not; but we wont know until after it is done.

as someone that is a relative recent return to SWTOR, I think this will be a good thing.

I only came back for the PVP...and doesn't have to be ranked either.. I love this game's warzone system way better than any other's including WoW...so more people to me means faster queue times...I'm all for that. I'll worry about raiding in a MMO whenever the new one comes out.. so far it's looking like CROWFALL..but who knows...bring on faster queue pops!!!

Maintaining highest legacy lvl sounds like a good thing. And obviosly people who pay them would get preference in their toons names.

Too bad its not just 1 server for NA
