I've searched a bit, but I couldn't find any official post about this, so I guess it wasn't addressed. I'm asking just to be sure, in case I missed it.
I started playing right after the launch, and due to the server issues, I started on a JP server instead of a NA/EU one. I'm pretty sure that I'm not the only one - I even think I see more American than Japanese players around me in the game.
From what I can gather, SE will be opening new servers in the coming week. Did they mention anything about allowing characters to be transfered to those new servers? I believe it would make sense, as it would alleviate population issues in the already crowded ones.
