How the hell caracter transfer price increase to 100%

General Discussion
Post ladder are starting up here! come and see how its cool :)
It’s quite mad.... something about prices...
Character transfer prices have never increased. They started at $25 USD and remain at $25 USD to this day.

If it is higher than that for you, it is due to a currency conversion or your home state/province levying sales tax.

You never paid $15 for a transfer unless you happened to purchase one when there was a sale going -- of which I believe there were maybe four that lasted a couple of weeks each in the last decade.

Pay with tokens.

yikes.
You must have gotten yours while it was on a special sale.
I seem to remember a weird sale a couple of years ago that seemed really random.
Or you might be thinking of another game.
Upping the price would be a little awkward as well and would result in 0 sales.

I would suggest thinking about what game it could have actually been before getting confused... And paying a little bit more attention in your English Writing classes.
Don't agree with the price? Don't pay it.
I has been a standard $25 since it was added back in 2006, if you bought it for less it was probably during a promotional sale that was going on (we have had a few of them over the years).
there have been times when BLizzard held sales; you mustve gotten you transfer at that time luckyyou

This is an amazing first post.
Holy molly this a freaking joke.....


Really hoping for a priest or paladin named Molly to show up to this thread and tell him it's not a joke.
It is Blizzard's publicly stated policy to "overprice" realm transfers, in order to discourage players from using them.

If they were $5, hundreds of thousands of players would transfer every month (transfer, then transfer back in a couple days for $10 round trip), just to play on multiple auction houses. Blizzard thinks that would hurt the game, so the round trip costs $50.

On the other side, they are not SO high in price that players who really want to change servers can't afford to. Nobody who plays this game can't afford $25. It costs me $80/mo just for high speed internet access.

Ha! this made ma laugh when I read it Gabhar. Me too.
People used to switch to Brazil to use the Brazil Bux (what they are definitely called) because it was close to half the price, then switch back to US.

Why not actually THINK your actions first so that you do NOT have to pay for a service in the first place?

If you had, you probably would not be complaining about having to pay to do this now.
