Free Character Moves Available for Select Realms

Are horde players allowed to transfer to Thalnos? That server is currently 99.7% horde per Similarly, Arcanite Reaper is 72% alliance - are alliance players permitted to move there?

Just when I thought you kook’s couldn’t get any dumber…

Nice “solution” - Nobody’s leaving Whitemane to servers that which guilds are fleeing from

Have fun with your queues then.

That’s the deal, take it or pay $25 to go someone else.

I’d rather sit in a 5 hour queue, thanks anyway


More power to ya.

i transfered of cause it sucked to be outnumbered like that, it took ages to get to brm and forget about buffing before the raid cause you will always die a bunch of times to get there

Why can people still paid server transfer to Whitemane…Faerlina…Incendius…?

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$, the only thing activision-blizzard cares for these days.

Because some people would rather sit in a 5 hour queue than play on a low-pop server.

If that were true they wouldn’t have enabled free realm transfers at all and just let people get fed up, impatient and pay for whole guilds to move.

As it is once the shelters in place are lifted people are gonna stop playing again and then most of the realms will go back to where they were prior to the orders being put in place. Only difference is incendius and whitemane may not be the ones having queues during primetime anymore.

“Free Character Moves will be closed without warning for any destination realm that becomes full.”

So free has limits due to perceived implications, but if you pay $25, you’ll overlook said implications of server instability? Notice how they used the word “FULL” when referencing off-load server candidates, yet never mention the original server’s being Full. What a nasty and politically delivered let down of an announcement.


What a nice non solution, mean while the game will still be non playable and those who transfer end up on effectively dead realms

Can someone link to me an article of how this works?

Will only 1 character be able to transfer for free, or all char from that realms?
Can I move from Pvp to pve realms?
Will my items and gold remain on my account?

No, yes, yes.

  1. No character limit unless the destination realm fills up (which isn’t going to happen given the choices)
  2. Depends on your source realm. If you’re on Whitemane, then no.
  3. Yes, but caps depending on how much gold you have and what level range you’re in.

Yep. It shows exactly why the PvP Server system is absolute garbage.

The real problem isn’t the PvP system, but that Blizz allowed the servers to be so obscenely full. The world was never meant to have even half the players a realm like Faerlina has, or even a smaller realm like Grobbulus.

OK. So you’ve done literally nothing. The most effort you undertook was to get our hopes up with an announcement that you were testing “something” and then pull the carpet out from under us.

Do you honestly believe that people who paid $25 a character to transfer to Incendius are going to up and leave to a server they can’t even really choose just because you give them the option to for free?

You couldn’t even be bothered to raise the cap on the servers or implement an actual solution? What testing did this involve, exactly? Testing how much an Activision Corporate Bro is going to freak out on you when you suggest offering a free “service” to your users that virtually none of them will take?

The last time I was this pissed off at Blizzard was during ACTUAL Vanilla launch when the client was so bad characters would get stuck in an infinite loop in the zeppelins.

This not a solution. This is not even a pittance. This is an insult.

Back to my 3000+ person queue on an allegedly 11,000 person server. Seriously, thanks for this, really excellent way to maintain a paying client base.


Keep telling yourself that :wink:
