    The $25 transfer fee is fine, what there needs to be is some sort of way to bulk transfer multiple characters at once for a discounted price.

    Well there you are, it is a good thing they have the $25 or it would happen everywhere.

    Yeah i know that, i just want to transfer all my characters for a set price rather than wasting 25x9 for them all.

    Plus its Blizzards fault for doing this. They should only use the free server change if they want to kill a server (there are like thousands of it) otherwise if they want to fix a faction, then they should reduce the price for faction change and give them a bonus for it but only a limited amount.

    But i am actually supporting this because it breaks peoples addiction to this game.

    OP spells at Ashran? Based on faction population? Yes, WODs gonna be the most awesome expansion ever! Propably gonna hit under 4 million sub mark.

    Agree, but I think people should get a free ticket for a transfer each expansion...to allow people to reroll if they want but don't got cash.

    Agreed. My guild transferd to a new server a few months ago and even how much it sucks to have all my alts left on my old server I'm never going to pay $75 to transfer them to my new server.

    It's pretty stupid from a consumer perspective; I agree.

    They need a way to move multiple characters from one server to another that is cheaper than hundreds and hundreds of dollars.

    ah so you would be okay if they raise the monthly fee to 20bucks? it´s a business afterall so there can´t be anything wrong with it, right?
    i think 25 is too much, 10 would be okay and somewhat acceptable. they make enough money with their mounts,pets,monthly....

    I agree, it's excessive and fairly obvious it's only there to milk as much cash as possible from subscribers. It will never change, either.

    Discussions like this are rather pointless, it's like asking why pharmaceutical companies charge such exorbitant amounts of money for cheap to manufacture drugs. They spent a few million on research and development 30-40 years ago and feel they deserve quarterly profits in the billions until the end of time for doing so.

    That would cause chaos actually.

    All we can sadly hope for is being able to migrate a pack of characters for a cheaper price. And it will propably never happen unless people ragequit this game over migrating.

    Geez sorry, I didn't know that's what you wanted to transfer for. I've never transferred servers, when I wanted to have a toon on a different one I just made a new toon. Excuse me, go get yourself some prozac and chill...

    And you're a Libertarian, why don't you just save your money and take some personal responsibility instead of blaming Blizzard for all your problems and crying to the rest of us about them? Crying about Blizzard wanting too much money...hmm...sounds like Trade Chat to me...go and play the game, aka roll a new toon on a new server, join your new guild. That's playing. Crying about Blizzard is /2.

    I will just state again that are plenty of other ways to exploit dead servers to. Dont need to migrate for this to work. So dont fear that that would happen.

    AH bots, buying/selling on neutral AH, snip-bots on neutral AH...and whatnot else we've heard about for years.

    I would love if Blizzard would close down servers atleast, its pathetic how they have so many realms that barely has any players on them.
    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?

    The $25 transfer fee isn't hurting the game, it is hurting OP's experience.

    Unfortunately for Blizzard they see their revenue more than your experience.

    You know I found that funny too. With a name like libertarian he should never complain about it. A true libertarian would believe in let the market dictate what the price would be, and it is the individual's responsibility to find a way to pay he 25. Perhaps MMO Champ will offer a free name change to socialist
