    I've had a character stuck in transfer between shards for almost 12 hours now. Whats the best channel to contact EA to get something like this resolved and how do I contact them? Thank you for your help.

    Have you logged out the character? I had the same issue. I freaked out as I'm betting you are too. When I finally logged out and and then logged back in, there I was in my nice new home shard.

    Hope this works for you.

    I've had that happen a couple of times, and my buddies can attest to the very frantic IMs that ensued

    you're just standing there, greyed out, and can't move and it doesn't log you out, and you're terrified to do anything and wreck the transfer process, sound right?

    but 12 hours, no, I never stayed logged on like that for that length of time.... I think my record is somewhere around half an hour.... if you are still logged in, yes, just close the client and check your destination shard

    if, however, you've done that and you're character still hasn't shown up, I would give them a call..... the Knowledge Base says that the process "can take up to 30 minutes" and you're long past that

    (oooops, sorry, forgot the phone number -

    Like Amber, it happened to me once too. After an hour, I exited the client and logged on to the new shard and everything was there including my 5 full packies.

    Also, when doing transfers, I remember they have a special log that will allow the support team to see the list of stuff being transferred in case of failed transfers. This is I think the 1 exception to their "We do not replace items" rule.

    Transfer to that shard again....

    The problem is that you might have been logged in on the shard and not logged out a safe place. Then changed to the shard you wanted to xshard from. and transfered to the shard. If you transfer again it should all work.
