Did SE mentioned anything regarding World Transfer for now?Follow

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.

I'm sure they will eventually. Doubt it will happen day one of new servers though. It takes a fair amount of attention to transfer characters and SE have bigger concerns right now

Really, if they had just implemented an AFK boot, this nightmare wouldn't be as bad.

I'm pretty new to this forum site (i've visited once but either gave up or found resolution to my problem). So hope they make enough servers, cuz i can't get in right now. and transfering to worlds sounds convinient, cuz right now it seems that i have to make a brand new character from level 1??

All they've said so far is that they plan to have the world transfer service available mid to late September. However, given all the server and capacity issues they are currently having, I'm sure those plans could change to suit the situation. All we can do is wait and see.

I'm voting for $5 per character.

If I'd thought you hadn't played any MMOs before, I know it for a fact now.

I actually think Yoshi has too much honor to do that. I'd say they will give 3 days of free transfers one week after the dust settles and stability is obtained on all servers

Then they start with the charging for transfers and it will be 20 bucks :)

Charging for server transfers would be a business decision.



Agreed transfer charges are a business decision, but free transfers to ticked off clients is a customer service decision

My guess is that they give the free transfers only to new servers in ORDER for the dust to settle and create stability. They have a history of doing it as well.
