    Cite where you got info that they would fix it. If you don't they disregard it like every other absurd claim they hear from players.

    I got a gm response, 25mins, start to finish, this morning by GM Erthim
    went like this:

    UO. Lake Superior. Tram. The Lost Lands - Terathan Keep. Level 2 ("The Star Room"). The teleporter that leads back to Level 1 has an object stuck on it blocking access.

    first they asked me to show them, No Way! it's a a 10X10 area, it's not hard to see
    The answer was "we will review this issue". but at least they actually checked.

    Yeah good luck. And no there is no number. Theres EA Customer Support or whatnot, at 1-866-543-5435. But yeah, they can't seem to help with most real issues. And apparently the GM side of everything has no phone number, just a web form.

    If you've tried everything else and still can't get any satisfaction might I suggest lodging a complaint at the BBB (Better Business Bureau) at United States and Canada BBB Consumer and Business Reviews, Reports, Ratings, Complaints and Accredited Business Listings. EA isn't accredited through them but they do still handle complaints and may be able to help get this fixed.

    So, what is the update on this TRANSFER problem ?

    I mean, transfer tokens cost REAL MONEY.

    Players actually pay $$$$ and the least that could be guaranteed is that the transfer goes smoothly and without any losses.

    How hard would it be to code it with a PRE transfer list of ALL items being transferred that the player has to OK BEFORE the transfer, the list is then recorded and stored both in player's hands and somewhere else on the game server. The list is NOT editable in any possible ways. Once generated it is permanent. The player can cancel the transfer if the list is not complete, though, and redo the process again.

    Once the list is generated the player CANNOT go back to the game again and can only either actually transfer OR cancel the transfer (which would also cancel the list). This would be to avoid generating the list, then transferring items to a buddy, transfer empty handed and claim items back using that list which were instead left behind.

    Upon transferring, another list, DESTINATION list is generated right exactly when landing on the destination shard.

    "IF" anything goes wrong, this 2 lists and their differences (items missing in the destination list which were included in the originating list) would be PROOF of the items not having been replicated on the destination shard as they should have been.

    there is a log, I just found it... whether this is proof or not, I don't know, cause it appears that it can be edited on the user end... EA would need to have retained a copy to compare it to

    Re: Help!!! I xfered, and 3 of my backpacks are emty....

    I def. feel your pain on this. Not with X-fer but same relative customer service. Like I mentioned in the other thread.... if you don't get your items... try the BBB. Why EA doesn't think they can be held accountable to paying customers is beyond me.

    go into you program files and look at teh ea files. look for your translog file, open it and read it to see if it is recorded in your item transfer log.

    I am surprised that we have not yet received any official comments on this issue.

    I mean, the purchase of transfer tokens is involved, and they also cost quite a bit, IMHO, ain't it enough for players to deserve some official comments on this problem ??

    Bit calmed down today...

    But - reliaze when i log in that char my bank has also decresed.

    I had filled it with 175 items (I got max storage) But he has only 163 items in his bank.

    I have no clue what I lost in bank, just that items are gone.

    I tried again to call live support, live support tells me to call a game master - only he can help me on this issue they tells.

    So - if they cant solve this, they should disable xfers till its solved.

    Just talked to GM again, and he cant help **** - nor can he confirm the item status before my xfer.

    What I do remember i lost so far is slither, leutainent of the brit sash, bag of 5 ethy polars and a su and a touch tool. medusa floor tile and statue. Bag with full sorcerer set, house tiles, luck suit with max luck and conjurer garb. What else i lost im not sure.

    DO NOT XFER BEFORE THIS IS SOLVED!!!!

    Ive got a Pheonix Armour set i need to move from LS...I won't be transfer this for a while.

    Loosing items when you are paying RL Gold for a service is just not cricket(as us brits say).

    I lost about 100m street value items in my transfer, not quite as bad as Mandrake but never the less, IT SUCKS!

    Dang Mandrake that just sucks! Manny, you might try contacting EA corporate in Redwood City, CA (650) 628-1500. Also email Cal-[email protected] and Mesanna- [email protected].

    I don't know if they will help you, cause Luc's Magincia house ate items and she's having a difficult time getting anyone to look at it. (Yes, she's emailed Mesanna) Probably my fault they won't help cause I've been a P-I-T-A about stuff.

    People in here trolled me when I have complained about the subpar in game customer NO service. Okay who's up for "invading" Fairfax, VA with me? lol

    No feedbak yet.

    But I discovered a very strange bug too...

    I can aparently not log on to TC1 - message I get is that i can not log on this shard while a character transfer is in progress etc....Disovered it yesterday, and i still cant log on. TC1 is a backup of GL, and I have never xfered to or from there.

    Now you know where you lost items are, maybe it is also a problem with the new character copy feature comming.

    Mesanna got back to me today, and i provided her the info she wanted. So I hope they find the loop hole.

    But when going over the translog file, and understanding it - all items i miss are from pack horse, not backpack.
