    why not give a months notice,
    add a context menu for a single transfer to return to your shard or move to a new shard. Then when the month is up, shut it down! no more transfers. End that nonsense for good.

    Everyone says how EA/Mythic makes too much money sellling transfer tokens, that they won't stop the service. I think they'll make much more money if they'll simply start selling items/gold to the players that want them, and recode transfers to be characters only, no items...imo.

    Agreed with no items...

    What should be transferred with a character:

    - The Character
    - The stats
    - The skills
    - A selection of newbie gear based on three of the top skills (randomly chosen if tied)
    - 1000 Gold

    That's IT.

    Allowing items to be transferred remains the biggest problem with the X-Fer service and always will be as long as it is allowed.

    Sorry traders... but as much of a free market person I am, that system has been too abused and caused too much damage to the game.
  4. What EA needs to do is get rid of transfer tokens completely, and handle transfers via a pay to EA service. That way EA can verify what's being transferred, and control it at both the origin and the destination. If a dupe happens to occur through a bug, then the transfer is put on hold and the character stuck in limbo until it's fixed and the dupes removed.

    I agree with you there, that's how other games I've play(ed) handle transfers.
