Thanks to the somewhat-confusing manner that SWTOR server transfers were handled, some players are left in an odd predicament. These players have characters on both their designated origin server and designated destination server, and not enough new character slots to accommodate their characters. Without the ability to transfer characters elsewhere and a limited number of character slots available, what exactly happens in this situation?
It seems unfair to expect these players to delete the higher-level characters, especially since SWTOR is currently one of the most alt-friendly MMOs on the market and actually rewards players with alts. BioWare hasn’t said much on this matter, until last Friday:

Just wanted to hop on here to let you all know that at no point will we be deleting your characters later this summer when we automatically move any remaining characters from origin servers onto designated destination servers. More details about how this will work out will be forthcoming, but I can assure you that automatic character deletion is not going to happen for this upcoming move.
Hey, look, another one of BioWare’s Soon™ lines! However, for players in this predicament, at least it’s something.
