First off, is anyone else bothered by the fact that we can't transfer among both types of servers? An official response to a logical explanation would be nice. It makes absolutely no sense that someone from a PvP server cannot move to a PvE server and vice versa. We're not reaping any ground breaking benefits from moving, only positives from experiencing a new community and game focus.
I would also love to know why we have all been segregated from the IMS, it was NOT like this at the beginning. I remember partying each and every server at the time and things were fine. Not just lancers would help move the IMS' downtime, but by partying *every* server. The more people in que, the more opportunity for faster matches.
tl;dr : Server segregation is unnecessary. Why was this even put into place?
Because people would level characters in the safe gank-free environment of a PvE server then transfer over at lvl 60. And I really dont want to queue with anyone thats playing on a PvP server, since that is where most of the IMS griefing is happening.
Transfer limits however would be unnecessary had EmE had PvP at end-game like in K-tera, but us 'mericans want to kill other people as soon as possible..
I see it all the time "RL > game"... but that simply is not the case with something like this. I would have LOVED to be on a PvP server, ganking or not. Though in my case, I do have often step away for a brief moment or tab out for 30 seconds every so often. Sure, I am able to set aside time to sit and play (for a nexus or dungeon) but while just leveling, I am going to play in between my real life activities. Logging out or returning to a safe haven every time I step away just gets annoying in a very short amount of time.
If I am ganked while I am playing, then that is fine, no big deal. If I tab out for a moment and come back dead, that just creates a very un-enjoyable game and most likely would have not continued my sub. It took me over a month to hit 60 in with one character as it is.
As for adding GvG on PvE servers, Dragonfall, which is perhaps the most populated PvE server has maybe 2 or 3 GvGs going on at the moment. I large amount of them have ended either in a draw or surrender. There is no GvG on PvE servers that I see.
@ Kaito At least the option is still available to GvG on the PvE servers. Your post really doesn't say much about the segregation.
Any new eta on the pvp to pve server transfers you said was coming and any plans in the future to shut down certain servers for transfer?

No plans for pvp to pve quite yet.
We may shut down some transfers but nothing planned.
The above is the response i got from the AMA on Friday on just pvp to pve. So nothing in the near future for any of it. TBH they should be happy with people wanting to just transfer and not leave all together.
