Mass realm transfer

This more then likely will never happen as much as I wish it would but why not throw it out there... Wtb a discount or something for transferring all toons from one realm to another. I really like the benefits of having all the toons I've already worked on so much on one realm together, but I would really like to change realms... Paying to transfer them all would just be.... ugh. :(

Yeah, maybe $5 reduction in price for each extra character you transfer on the same realm? But no lower than $10 per?

Adding a few freebie transfers as a perk to the new annual pass, with maybe a 6 month cooldown would shut me up about it.

I wish they'd offer character bundles also. If nothing else it would be alot easier to do multiple characters in one transaction even without a price break but I'd dearly love a deal on multi-toon xfers.

I have been lobbying for this for ages. All 11 character spots filled, would love to move off of PvP realm, will never spend $275 on it. :/

Watch what happens with that system:

1 toon @ $25 each: $25
2 toons @ $20 each: $40
3 toons @ $15 each: $45
4 toons @ $10 each: $40... oops.

The only thing I see them realistically doing is transfer all characters on one server to another for a lump fee like $75 or $100.

OK, that's a valid interpretation of what was said... but the way she left it non specific like that, so is what I said.

How about they just do the right thing and start merging servers?

Bad PR(TEH GAIM IZ DIEING GUIZ), issues pop up if any guilds or characters share names.

They don't think it is the right thing.

And neither will all the people who set the forum ablaze because they lost their name... or because, as they have said, merging servers won't solve the problems.

But really, this is a tangent to the discussion at hand anyway.

Since the achievements are account bound, I'd just make a recruit a friend account and re-level your characters and move your main over (with everything you need).

That's what I'd do if I was moving realms and what I have done twice already. D;

Even if they merge servers people will still want to transfer sometimes. Some servers will always be more progressed than others (which doesn't always line up with population amounts btw), sometimes you'll find you have friends on another server you want to play with (or return to if you move and it doesn't work out).

xfers don't happen over pop alone so mergers really don't impact this conversation.

This. So much this.

It's not that I can't afford it, it's that it's really greedy. I would never pay full price to transfer 11 characters on principal.

FYI,

I tried to get a discount for transfer to a higher activity realm,myself being a player for 6 years and them practically giving the software away now(when I paid full price for each and every one like most). I already paid transfered my main to a "better realm" Anywho this is the response I got when asking for some sort of discount to transfer my alts....

Hello there,I'm Colton with account and technical services, I was lucky enough to pull your ticket today and assist you with it. I spoke with a supervisor about this and I got shot down. :(I understand that you have been a long time customer and also understand $25.00 a character can be quite expensive, however with CRZ, you can actually do raids across realms now, and not just LFR but the normal and heroic versions.The only thing you are unable to do across realms is arena.Thank you for your patience in this matter and if there is anything else we can assist you with, please feel free to respond to this ticket.<(^o^<) (>^-^)> d {◕ ◡ ◕}zAccount & Technical Support Rep ColtonBlizzard Entertainmenthttp://us.battle.net/support

Very few businesses give any kind of discount when purchasing items in bulk, why do people think Blizzard will do this? The prices are set to where they are for a reason. Not only does everything in a business cost some kind of resource, Blizzard has stated they don't want these features to be over used. They also need to ensure that these features aren't used for the wrong reasons.

CRZ was not designed to fix server pop issues, it was designed to fix zone population.

I don't see what a server transfer will accomplish really. You would still be stuck with much of the stuff that CRZ sucks at. I have toons on Dragonmaw (PVP) and Fizzcrank (normal). The CRZ issues I have and the things I dislike about it are there regardless of what server I'm playing on.

Moving toons isn't going to solve anything. IDK why people would even pay to have a toon change now when it doesn't matter what server is your 'home' server as soon as you leave the capitols you are with 4 other servers where either the resources on the other 4 are unavailable (if they exist at all). Last I played, I still was falling from my mounts at a death dealing height when crossing certain zones - yup bugged them but still was happening so...along with all the other dislikes and glitches since CRZ I have been playing less on any of the two servers.

With the CRZ it's almost criminal that they'd still charge anything for a transfer!
