Free Character Transfer Service Begins January 13, 2009 - 12/11/2008


In response to requests from our players we are offering a limited time opportunity to move any characters on identified servers to a designated target galaxy at no charge. We believe that by offering a Free Character Transfer Service (CTS) in this manner we can address the concerns we have heard players voice with respect to server population. It is our hope that those of you who are looking to move will take this opportunity to do so beginning on January 13, 2009, and that this will bring with it a fresh sense of excitement and enthusiasm that will extend across all the galaxies.


Free Character Transfer will begin at 12:01AM PST on January 13, 2009, and will only be offered to those accounts with characters created on or before December 10, 2008 at 11:59 PM PST on the identified galaxies listed below. Again, the only way to qualify for the Free Character Transfer is to be on one of the identified Free Character Transfer servers and move to one of the targeted galaxy servers and this is only available on a one-time/once per character basis. The Free Character Transfer service will end on March 31, 2009 at 11:59PM PST.


More Details


Effective January 13, 2009, and ending on March 31, 2009, the character(s) you have active on the identified current "transferred from" galaxies* listed below, that were created on or before December 10, 2008 at 11:59PM PST, may be moved to one of the destination servers at no charge*. This option will be available on a one-time/once per characterbasis.


The current "transferred from" galaxy servers include:


* Corbantis

* Europe-Infinity

* Intrepid

* Kauri

* Kettemoor

* Lowca

* Naritus

* Scylla

* Tarquinas

* Tempest

* Wanderhome


The valid destination galaxy servers include:

Free Character Transfer Service Rewards – Available to Transferred Characters that Meet Free CTS Requirements

In the spirit of galactic friendship, all characters who move to a valid destination galaxy will receive a relocation gift of a painting which when "examined" will carry the name of the transferred character and the home (transferred from) planet on it. Only characters who transfer to a valid destination server as part of this promotional free character transfer service are eligible to receive the painting gift.


Along with the painting, players who transfer to a valid destination galaxy as part of the promotional free CTS will also receive a gift box which can only be used as a gift to give to a waiting welcomer on the new galaxy. Once the gift box is given to another player, it can be opened to reveal the same painting received by the transferor but with a new inscription which includes the "welcomer" recipient's name and the moving character's name and home galaxy, as a "thank you" for their warm welcome of the newcomer (the inscription is only visible when you use the "Examine" option to view the painting).


It is in the spirit of peace and friendship that we offer these gifts and hope that the goodwill that comes from sharing these gifts will spread across the galaxy like the stars overhead.


We want your experience with Star Wars Galaxies to be the best possible and look forward to seeing you in your new home galaxy!


More details on this promotion will be released in the coming days and weeks.


May the Force be with you!
