Play With Your Friends: SWTOR Offers Deep Discount on Server Transfers
Since announcing the newest expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic, Knights of the Fallen Empire, BioWare’s MMO has seen a spike in subscriptions. New players have been coming in to see what the game is all about, and older players have been subscribing in hopes of cashing in on some of the promised subscriber rewards. With resubscribing comes the inevitable quandary: How do I play with my friends on X server when my characters all reside on Y server?
To answer this burning question, SW:TOR has announced a limited time, massive discount on server transfers starting on June 23rd, 2015. While no end-date for the discount was announced, SW:TOR has stated that the promotion will ‘run for a while’ and that they will ensure that there is warning given several weeks in advance before the price returns to normal.
The discount on server transfers is an incredibly deep 95%, from 1800 Cartel Coins to a mere 90 Cartel Coins per transaction. Like all transactions for SW:TOR (barring actual subscriptions), server transfers can only be paid for through use of the IP-specific currency, Cartel Coins. As a reminder, all subscribers receive a 500 Cartel Coin monthly grant, and all players, regardless of subscription status, receive a 100 Cartel Coin monthly grant for having an authentication token (available as a dongle or through Android and iOS) on the account. For players who have already spent their available allowance, Cartel Coins are available for purchase through SWTOR.com or from your local game retailer for real life money.
