we had plenty of notice this was coming and transfer were free up until yesterday. Seems like you have no one to blame but yourself, you were given more than fair chance to change for free.
I think a lot of people have suddenly jumped ship all of a sudden because of the change, I don't think I'd notice this happen until its too late either.
It's not like your server population is announced to you everytime you log on so I think it's easy for it to happen.
I think we should of all got one transfer ticket just incase but oh well.
I hear you, I haven't played in 6 weeks as a result of major surgery. But I managed to keep up to date via my friends. I does seem they have been hinting at it for about a month or more. I like the one time use ticket idea that was mentioned but hey its too late now.
You can always just make the best of the server you are on. With it being medium population it is certain to fill up with more people. It was definitely known from beta that the game would try to keep players on a server.
There is guesting option (between other EU) now until you can get off your server. There is also a lfg website that helps you find others to group with.
That sucks, I've only got 9 gold and I have a level 80 and 49 character....
I tried to be smart and buy some unidentified dye and try sit on them for a while until prices go up but then remembered they'll be for sale through the new daily thing so got rid of them ASAP before the price crashed and I lost a few gold haha, I suck.
If you want to make some alright money sell mystic coins, I've built up 50 and they're worth 5 gold atm
