Right, that account is the one I lost access to. As that character is under 50, they vacated the name.

I picked this up again recently, playing with my son. We're still on Ebon Hawk. Leveling is super fast now, hard to keep up with even self crafted equipment. Haven't started any of the expansion stories yet.

Here is a link to the cliff notes for the Fall Roadmap.

A lot of changes are coming (most of them good).

Most importantly, server merges are coming on Nov 8th. Name retention precedence will be given to characters who are subscribed, and to those have have been most recently active.

All of the current servers will be going away, and they will be consolidated on to new servers.

Here are the notes form Dulfy
http://dulfy.net/2017/10/03/swtor-fall- ... -coverage/

And the relevant details on the Server Merges (name retention policies).

Quote:
Server Merges

  • We won’t reveal the full details on how character name conflict resolution will work to prevent people from gaming the system and getting a name. However, higher level and more active character will give you better chances at keeping that name.
  • Non subs will lose their names to subscribers no matter what.
  • Having non unique names like guild names (with the origin server) isn’t possible with character names.
  • If you have two level 50 legacies, one is randomly chosen to be your legacy after the merge.
  • If you have fully decorated strongholds, they will all be there after the server merge. However with decorations if you have them placed at the cap limit (i.e. 10/10) on multiple strongholds, you will need to remove some of them before placing new ones. They will allow you go over the cap but to place new ones you need to go under the cap.
  • There isn’t technically a RP server right now, we are exploring options to allow RPers RP in a safe place which they can control. It may not happen with United Forces update but we are looking into it.
  • They always had a list of potential server names. Musco remember the Hot Prospect server name from when he joined Bioware six years ago and he thought it was a funny name. He helped Hot Prospect to rise to the top of the list of prospects.
  • The theme with the new server names is that they have three KOTOR ship names and two character names.
  • They are looking to reduce the cost of server transfer, legacy name, character name, and guild name renames.
  • Max number of characters per server is 52 (if you brought character slots). Max for subscribers without buying any character slots is 12. We are looking to change these numbers for the merge.
  • You can have a max of 10 strongholds with 5.5, but conquest bonus is capped at 150%

For anyone interested, here is the current game progression chart.

It's a bit daunting to look at this. There is a ton of content in this game.

The first two rows (up to Ilum) can basically be repeated 8 times (once for each class story on Republic and Imperial sides).

Good map. I have competed a bunch of stuff with my Trooper but there are holes around flashpoints. Mostly solo play / duo with my son. Maybe the server merge will be a good thing.

If you are on Ebon Hawk, your new server will be "Star Forge".

Harbinger players were going to be moved to a server called "Hot Prospect" (the name of Zayne Carricks' mining ship from KOTOR), but apparently some people complained, so they decided to name the new server "Satele Shan".

Here is the official post from the SWTOR devs, with all of the gory details.
