    Default server transfers are bad for the game

    people who should be naturally quitting or being punished for stupid decisions (like snark or rhaz) when their guilds die or weaken instead get a chance to bail n start anew thanks to sony's retarded liberal xfer policies. imo eq2 should have been like eq1 where xfer was not an option. imo it's worth not having some of our stronger members from other servers as we'd be ok nehow, in exchange for getting to see some high playtime losers from guilds we've dismantled get stuck on our server with nowhere to go. discuss

    I think transfers are fine in general, but perhaps some changes should be made to the system as a whole. Possibly a limit to how many transfers can be done to one character, ie: 3 transfers allowed over X months (or lifetime) to avoid server hopping (though, thats a good chunk of cash) and I think free transfers to exchange should be changed IMO, I've seen a bunch of guys transfering there lately just to sell, they should be charged $50 transfer fee, since well, they're quitting and making cash out of it anyway but I doubt thats gonna happen since Sony makes $$ for the sales so no transfer fee = more transfers = more for Sony.

    I think I've discussed this with you many times, transfers are horrible for the game but good for business. I rember in FFXI you had the option to move to the server they created when overcrowding happened but this was rare as hell. i used to love seeing those people who were shunned from guilds mope around in lower juneo lol.

    I agree transfers are bad. They severely hurt competition, one uber guild forms and everyone else tucks tail and runs to find their own server to try to takeover.

    Everyone wants to be the best in their own little world, even if in reality they're a 2nd or 3rd rate guild.
