    Not sure if its just me being bugged or this may be a bigger issue.

    Overnight I decided to move a char from LS to GL about 45 min before server down.

    The xfer went through just fine and I unloaded my char on GL. Now I just tried to log into LS and it says I have a char transfer in progress and I cant log into LS at all.

    I have paged a GM, but its Sunday morning 6:30 and I really don't expect to see one this morning.

    Anyone else have this issue and if so how did you resolve it?

    I had the issue several weeks back, where I could not log into the shard I transferred from, but could on all other shards (the "from" shard was a shard I rarely use, so the transfer was several weeks prior to logging back in). I ended up transferring a character back to the "from" (stuck) shard. He arrived OK, and the bug didn't repeat, so I assumed it was a fluke.

    It happens when you Xfer near the downtimes of any shard. Don't do it.

    I've had this happen. Once the character disappeared & I couldn't log on either shard.

    Paged a GM from a shard I could log into, sent an email to UOBugs - a day or two later all was fine.

    Lesson: Be more aware of the times you chose to use the awesome vet gifts bestowed upon you. With great power comes great responsibility :)

    Well, seems my page to a GM went through even though I logged. Got to work and checked account and everything is back to normal. Even got an email from EA to confirm!

    yeah this happens often to me. GMs usually have it fixed the next day.
