Well I got a CS response which told me to create a new character on Red Eclipse and then delete it. This reset the system to understanding I only had 7 chars there and let me transfer the final one.
Good quick response but from a programming viewpoint slightly worrying transactional control.
Now I just have to worry about them closing my other server with characters still on.
Since I have now unsubscribed (Sorry Maz) unless they offer a new destination server soon I am going to be left with 8 chars on a dead server. And my highest 8 to boot
. However since they were going to lose their Legacy name anyway I suspect that they might choose oblivion over loss of identity.
For the record the ones that transferred were 6 Imps and 2 Republic - Including my unforgettable Jedi Mind'tryx
