theres one things I dont get. I doubt theyre gonna increase the current server capacity (otherwise why not just do that and dont add more servers?) soo we get new servers... but no world transfer right now.. so how does that help us? From what I can see that only benefits new players or ppl willing to recreate/start over on another server. Am i missing something?

Per the front page of the lodestone:

To resolve this issue, we will be performing maintenance from September 3, 2013, at 5:00 p.m. to September 4, 2013, at 3:00 a.m (PDT), for the purpose of increasing the number of available Worlds, reducing stress on the Duty Finder servers, and increasing the number of concurrent logins allowed for each server.

It's impossible for them to tell us every single thing they have planned. I would like to think they will offer free world transfers for a short bit, and while they haven't announced anything on it yet, it doesn't mean it won't happen. *fingers crossed*

I have the same feeling as you on this, I know quuite a few players who will not reroll, unless they give free transfers, but there has been no word on this as of yet. And who knows, they might not give them away for free...

Servers also means adding capacity to current worlds. The 5,000 soft cap limit will be pushed back some by adding extra servers. They don't stack 1:1 typically, but they do stack just the same. More servers= more capacity.

My guess is they will only allow new characters on the new servers for now, for maybe a week, then allow volunteer transfers to test the world transfer service before paid transfers.

"and increasing the number of concurrent logins allowed for each server. "

that just means increase the number that can be logged in at once that doesnt mean "allow new character to be created on said servers"

I could be so very wrong, but I can't imagine that they wouldn't offer a free transfer to everyone who has been affected this first week. A lot of people ended up on servers they did not want due to the worlds being closed off. SE seems to be trying to do right by the players, and I don't think they would let this issue slip by without dealing with it.

And then with people transferring about, perhaps then they could open up all worlds for new characters.

Again, I could be so far off base with that, but if they do implement any of it, hopefully it will be sooner than later.

I really should stop posting this late at night. Can't type coherent thoughts. ._.
