Is it sad that I once apped to apples and was rather annoyed that I got rejected? Lol. Looking back I was trying to get into a guild full of bads? T.T
Sounds like your saved yourself some transfer fees!
But he didn't? From what I can tell he dished out 25$ to x-fer off SoE, so I mean, if anything he had to spend 25$ cause he didn't get into apples. I mean i'm very surprised anyone from a high pop realm would spend anytime trolling a backwater low pop RP realm.
Also judging by the progress of most characters (Note that I don't really have anything to show for PvE myself.) you're sitting pretty close to what Apples is/was as well as not having realistically the same chance of getting realm first achievements simply because of higher competition.
I don't know who really saved transfer fees here.
