Transferring is a convenient, if expensive, way for players to fix any poor decision they made when choosing a server. However, I’m wondering if they create more problems than they solve in 2020, especially given that players now know that the # of players on one’s faction on a server ensures convenience.
For example, transfers have created a faction imbalance problem, and have resulted in queues on servers that previously didn’t have them, driving even more players to transfer.
There have been issues with transfer players who have tried to organize raids only to then ninja items. They then hop to another server.
Finally, I’d argue that transfers may disrupt the sense of community on a server, as players and guilds come and go without a hello or goodbye.
It may be that some guardrails should have been put in place to minimize problems that transfers create.
