@landman said in GM Request OBT-Full Release Ship Transfer:
I think the JP server only transfers the character storage, not the rest. At least it was like that long ago.
Yeah That is what happened to me a a few years ago. I was kind of hopeing they made a work around or adjusted the way transfer works.
I understand that concern, you decided on Ship 6, but what if the population does not require to open 6 servers? the open beta will be the moment most people (at least xbox players) will join, if they fit ok in 3-4 ships, I don't think they would activate more servers. Then there will be PC launch, if the xbox population has not declined then maybe more ships will open.
It's not only my decision but a majority vote by Alliance members. We were thinking on ship 1 but with the already 900+ people server queues in CBT alone. It will get even more populated in OBT and Full Release. They made 6 ships as a safety in the first place to accommodate and populate them. A lot of people who had to wait 2+ hours to play due to queues on ship 1 and 2 will most likely branch out and choose the other ships to keep from having to queue. Once PC comes around the number of people playing is going to go up tremendously. So under population between OBT and Full Launch with Cross Play may even force them to add more ships.
On the event a ship gets mostly deserted, it will be harder for players on that ship, market will be dead (good luck switching to a new class and not finding weapons or even Photon Arts discs), some Urgent Quests will not reach the objective to activate ship wide boosts, etc. I hope the game is incredibly popular and a lot of ships are full, of course!
If the populations does drop enough to warrant cases if UQ's and major market issues then just like on early years in JP they will combine ships to increase the population.
