It's funny people who messed up on their server or have a bad rep wants to xfer. God this will make all the scammers dream come true if it did happen...
can u please explain how... because i tried proposing ideas like limiting the number of xfer to once per 6months or so... making items no trade nd adding restrictions to stuff u can carry with u
I didn’t assume anything. This is meant as a group discussion so when I say you, I mostly mean it as a generalization.
Second a lot of it would depend on what is allowed to be xfered. The only truely non detrimental way is to xfer and you take absolutely nothing with you except your levels. All items cash and banks, all gone. If any was allowed to be takin it makes it extremely easy for a scammer to xfer gear from server to server and make money. You can limit amount of xfers sure but accounts are free and would just have to make new account to xfer with.
If items are no drop scammers could join top end guild get geared then xfer off and sell account on diff server to some lazy whale who doesn’t care it’s origins and multiboxes. Yes it happens.
If droppable items or cash is allowed to be xfered then scammers truely gonna have a field day when they can scam by joining random top end clan, getting geared then moving that gear to Any server that they can find a whale willin to Buy said gear or in game gold for real life cash.
These are the easy cons as well, I’m sure some smart con artists can find many many more ways of screwing people over using xfers.
But honestly allowing people the ability to server hop is just going to kill even more servers than are already dead. So it’s not fixing more than it’s damaging. A lot of people play because they have history on a server and a group of friends they like to play with. If those people start disappearing and clans start dieing it’s going to ruin the game for a different set of people who now have to leave server or deal with thier own dead server. All server xfering does is opens a huge can of worms.
I would be ok if otm could look at all servers and any server that hasn’t killed gele in say last 5 months. Take all those servers and combine em. But don’t go messing with current active servers with a xfer. If you want to be part of that server, go ahead, as a new toon
