#1 - 2013/03/20 07:08:00 PMSo I bought a transfer (25$). In fact, I was planning on buying a few more transfers from some other accounts I have had over the years (probably about $100 worth) so that I could consolidate a lot of 90s, mounts, achievements, pets etc. that I have had over the years. I mean, this makes sense right? That's why Blizzard did account wide achievements - right? So that we could have all of that cool stuff on all of our chars and not feel forced to only play ONE char, right?
Blizzard's official policy now is that mounts, achievements, bind on account items AND NAMES, are not ACCOUNT bound and can't be transferred.
So, I transfer my 90 Horde Paladin, and I'm telling everyone all of the cool stuff I can't wait to have on my new RAF account that I made with a real life friend (oh hey, that's another $100 worth of stuff that I bought). Nope. My paladin has
I get a stock 90 blood elf paladin. That's it. Nothing special about it, it's an old 90. A paladin I could replicate in 3-4 hours. Not the paladin that took me hundreds of hours to make. A paladin that takes MAYBE 2 weeks to level to 90. So you expect me to drop $25 on a 90 paladin that takes 2 weeks to make? I don't get anything special about my old character?
Who makes your business decisions and why are they not fired? This is one of the stupidest business decisions I have ever seen ANY business make. Who is going to buy a transfer but twinks who want items you can't get anymore?
Have fun seeing all that transfer money dry out!
Edit: And no I'm not quitting. I like this game. I like this company, usually, but this is a great way to not get more of my money.
