Hey everyone, as you can imagine we’ve been seeing calls for Free RealmTransfers on the forums, reddit on the live-stream. We’ve been working hard to make sure we take a measured approach to this delicate process.  So in an effort to bring relief to some of our most populated Realms, we are offering free Realm Transfers off of these Realms and onto some of the lesser populated Realms. Once the server maintenance is complete on June 3rd, 12:00AM PDT, you will have the option to transfer your characters from the following Realms:
 
 
NA
  • Pergo to Rowsdower
  • Pago to Rowsdower
  • Widow to Rowsdower
  • Stormtalon to Mikros
  • Caretaker to Orias
 
EU
  • Hazak to Contagion
  • Hazak to Gaius
  • Hazak to Deadstar
  • Progenitor to Deadstar
  • Treespeaker to Gaius
  • Ascendancy to Archon

 
Please be aware, there will likely be a rush for Realm transfers when we first open up the service. The transfer process can take time. In some cases it may take up to 24 hours depending on the volume of transactions. 
 
Additional Information:
Upon the event that we need to remove one of the destination Realms from the free transfer service, we will give the community 48 hour notice before removing a destination Realm from the list of Free Transfers.
When new Realms open post launch, we will message if this Realm is a transfer target or not. If the new Realm is not, then the “race to 50” will be preserved on that Realm for at least 2-4 weeks, and transfers will be prevented for that time.
 
The Realm transfer can only be enacted from the character select screen, so you will have to wait in a queue to enact the transfer if there is one on the source Realm.
  • You can move any number of characters you want as many times as you want, but each character can only be moved once every 22 hours.
  • You cannot have pending mail, auctions, commodity orders, or CREDD orders
  • You cannot be a member of a circle, Arena Team, Warparty, or a Guild
  • You cannot be in a circle, Arena Team, Warparty, or Guild leader
 
A note on Rowsdower - In the event that Rowsdower becomes overloaded, we are prepared to open new PvP Realms that Rowsdower players would be able to transfer to.

When will overcrowded non-PVP servers have this option? Looking at you Stormtalon and Caretaker.

Just out of curiosity, will this also apply to the other two current NA-PVP realms that haven't been mentioned (Warbringer and Bloodsworn)? What if those two become crowded during launch, will they get free transfers to newly opened realms as well?

I like that you are doing something, but will this really help that much with queue times ?

This now becomes a tool in our toolbox to use as needed in the future.

Mikros is already High on prime time :-/

But I salute the decision for those who are waiting hours just to get in. Hopefully this won't bring queues on my server. ;)

I do want to point out that during prime time hours, the Orias and sometimes Mikros server hit high status already. Transferring to them with new characters being made at launch may only cause these both to become full. Maybe it would be better to make just one more PVE server and have Caretaker and Stormtalon transfer to there? I'm just worried of a constant jumping effect with players servers becoming full after transfer, and then all the players that started on that server wanting to move and just causing even more confusion.

Make sure that Orias stays enterable. I play on that server because it was medium populated, now it is on high flag. I hope it won,t become full, I am having a great time never had any queue on this server. We'll see on June 3rd

 

[EDIT] I am with dez88 on this one. Should probably consider opening another PvE server to accept the transfers. We are quite high already.

What about EU-PVE Eko and Ascendancy? - there have been queues for several hours on both these servers every evening so far.

 

Many thanks for the update and for looking into it so quickly!
