Star Wars: The Old Republic Server Consolidation

The Star Wars: The Old Republic Website offers details on server consolidation in the Star Wars MMORPG, including a Server Consolidation FAQ (thanks VG247). They explain this follows "the success" of their Free Character Transfer Program:

Following the success of the Free Character Transfer Program, and after closely monitoring server populations, we have now taken the next step in our on-going server population balancing process. We have upgraded destination servers in order to support a significantly higher number of players. As of tomorrow, all characters on origin servers will be automatically moved onto the upgraded high population destination servers. By centralizing our player populations on these higher population destination servers, we feel that we can offer our players the best possible Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ experience.

I might still be playing this if they did this 5 months ago. Too little too late.

For what it's worth, will be playing Guild Wars 2 until Planetside 2 comes out.

I cannot get enough of GW2.. and I also played the PS2 beta.. a good bit. Having said that, I find that PS2 feels rather, blah. I LOVE FPS's and i LOVE large scale FPS's.. but there's something about PS2 that doesn't feel right, nor does the game give me a reason to jump back in the beta

I will also add that in TOR, around level 35 ish.. I started getting infuriated with the amount of identical quests, and identical gameplay. Also, the CONSTANT back and forth to my main quest hub and the long runs that took. Hit the max level and despite being a prior hardcore WoW raider and being in the same WoW guild that xferred to TOR.. I had NO desire to raid or run flashpoints.. nothing in the game gripped me or made me want to log in. I actually just stopped logging in one day.. just didnt care any longer.

Now after playing GW2 to 80.. and seeing everything this game has and does.. I couldn't ever play another game that's "less" of a game than this. GW2 has spoiled me rotten.
