WvW dislike pay for transfer

Lovely_LalyLovely_Laly genevaPosts: 734Member

just go on forum and look all rants posted.
last time I saw anything like that was on rants part of runescape, when both were not dead.

So far I bet guys found new way to make some cash: and you pay from 300 gems up to 1800!

I'm fully disgusted my idea they introduced this method only for push you once again to silly Item Shop...

Seems this game is nothing else but cheap asian f2p crap.

good news for all lovers of GW2: I'm not a hater, just wanted correct product for my money + I move to Tera now.

try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.
Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2

    You can always reroll on a new server, won't cost you anything. Move along, nothing to see here.

    Its not like they didn't give advanced warning that this would be happening which gave people plenty of time to transfer before the costs came into effect.  Free transfers was one of the larger flaws of the W v W system and it needed to be fixed.  I can't believe it took them this long.

    You're lucky they let you transfer at all.  The original idea was to not allow transfers because it could disrupt the WvW population balances.  With free transfers, it was bad enough having people flock to the winning worlds all the time.  With paid transfers, the shifts in power will be much slower and the system should work as intended.

     

    If you don't like it, don't play the game.

    You are absolutely correct, and tbh they should never have gone on for more than the 1st month if that long.  There are entire guilds out there that have been hopping servers for WvW since launch :(

    WvWvW is hampered by  free server transfers. If you can't see that than I'm having a hard time beleiving that you are thinking it through at all. 

     

    In celebration of the original post, I will not post about GW2 for an entire week to give the "anti-GW2" a break.  I am also going to give out random drops and gold throughout this week to other players in game. 

     

    Made my day.

    All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

    I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.

    I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

    We've known since BEFORE LAUNCH that there would be paid server transfers. Anet even said that they were going to offer free transfers for a while to let people settle into a server with their friends. The only difference is that it took them longer than we expected. 

    "Cheap asain f2p crap"

    Well since it's developed by Anet in the US, I don't know how it can be Asian. Since you must buy the game first, I don't know how it can be f2p. And since every other game out there requires paid server transfer, even sub based games (WoW), I guess by your logic, WoW must be a cheap asian f2p crap.

     

    "just wanted correct product for my money"

    You bought the game knowing full well that they were going to introduce paid server transfers later on. You bought the game knowing full well that their policies may change at anytime later. The phrase "correct product" is ambiguous at best. What is a correct product? What basis are you using to judge this "correct product"? Your own? If that's the case, then the term "correct product" would be subjective. What may not be right for you, is right for someone else. And you know full well this consequence when you part with your money.

     

    "I move to Tera now"

    Weren't you just bashing Asian games earlier in this thread? And an Item shop? Correct me if I"m wrong, but isn't Tera a sub based MMO with a cash shop? Looking at their website, it looks like I can buy weapon skins! They charge $15 a month, and they make you pay for some weapon skins! Greedy.

     

    At least if you are going to make an argument, make it logical and sound. Either way, I hope you have a blast in Tera.

    I don't see how anyone can make an argument about free transfers. Especially when there is guesting.

    I'm hoping your problem is just with the translation of words, you have made a number of posts that just don't make any sense ...but moving to Tera to avoid cheap Asian f2p is just 180 in the wrong direction

  • Lovely_LalyLovely_Laly genevaPosts: 734Member

    thanks for feedback about Tera, I can be wrong with that choice.
    doing event at GW Faction now, enjoy it again.

    as don't need to play sub, will keep GW2 as side game.

    I don't cry about WvW payment, lol. it strange to have them started like 6 months later, but why not.
    only look GW2 forum for tons of unhappy customers now. I don't mind you all to like this game, I like it too if have nothing better to play. =D

    Beside now it full of bugs again so I stay away

    try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.

    Would you mind giving the link to where this discussion on the official forum is located? I've looked and haven't really seen anything ...seems strange though most folk’s post I've read were annoyed about free transfers and stated server jumping was ruining wvw

    They had 5 months of free server transfers, I see no reason to bitch AT ALL!

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    If you want to server transfer, you pay, you mean you never heard of paying? "free" Server transfer should had been only the first few weeks if not just the first month. It had always been Anet intention to be a paid service. So stop hoping around for WvWvW. Go guesting if you want to play with a friend.

    The fact that you could guest in PvE but locked to home server for PvP, and that it would cost gems to transfer home servers, was something that had been announced for months before release, and actually the free transfers for so long were the surprise after release.

    Today there are threads complaining of the end of the free transfers for WvW (because you can now guest for PvE on other servers)... but in the months that passed after release I remember reading lots of threads of people complaining that free transfers were ruining WvW since people were transferring to the winning servers and begging for Anet to start charging for server transfers. I guess this is just another proof that you can never please everybody.

    @op: good luck with Tera, sincerely hope you find it fun, since after all it's all we're looking out of a game after all, to have fun.. :)

    What can men do against such reckless hate?

  • PurutzilPurutzil East Stroudsburg, PAPosts: 2,925Member Uncommon
    Problem is, even with transfers costing money, imbalance will still remain and some worlds will simply be screwed while others will practically always win. Its not their fault, mind you, its mostly the fault of the playerbase to gravitate to the winning side, and if you can't, chances are your going to just neglect doing it all together.
  • Eir_SEir_S Argyle, NYPosts: 4,623Member
    I don't see how this is a problem, but even then, you knew it was coming.. everyone did if they were paying attention.
  • ScorchienScorchien Hatboro, PAPosts: 1,344Member Uncommon

    Its actually the best thing Anet has done for there game since its launch .. Was one of the reaasons WvW is so bad . was the CoatRidin Gimmebears wantin to tranhsfer to the winning side , once a week

       So now those people will be whining in the forums....

    I think a lot of people got caught up in the GW2 hype and believed all the claims of free service after they purchased the game. They are just now realizing that the B2P model has a lot of the same hidden costs that F2P and subscription games have.

    It was never a hidden cost, they told people this would be coming.. in fact, this whole time people have been able to transfer for free.  It was a bonus to be able to do so for this long. 

    But I do find it hilariously ironic that the OP called GW2 "cheap Asian F2P crap" while listing Forsaken World as a top MMO in another thread.  Seriously.

    I have to ask, at least in this particular thing... what hidden costs?

    http://www.arena.net/blog/mike-ferguson-takes-your-wvw-questions-here-and-on-reddit

    Blog post from february 23rd, 2012 (as in, long before release, and long before you could even pre-purchase):

    "Every account has a home server where your characters are created. You can only fight for your home world in WvW."... "You will have to pay a fee to change your home server (price undetermined), and that will also discourage people from server hopping to chase world bonuses.".

    http://www.arena.net/blog/choosing-and-transferring-worlds-in-guild-wars-2

    Another blog post, this one from April 24th, before the first beta weekend:

    "For our first Beta Weekend Event (April 27-29), home-world selection and world transfers will work just as they will when Guild Wars 2 launches." "While you can change your home world, there is a limit of one world transfer every seven days per account and a charge of 1,800 gems for each transfer. A world transfer moves all of your existing characters to your new home world. Any subsequent characters you create will also play in this new home world."

    That's just a couple, and I remember reading a lot about it on interviews and other articles

    If you want to complain, there are quite a few legit reasons, for example, how rare the BL chest keys are on drops (so far I've gotten one as a drop since release), but really the only thing hidden about server transfers were how long they were going to be free after release.

    What can men do against such reckless hate?

    Lovely_Laly, those who are ranting are the "world hoppers" who can't stand to see their server loose a worldvworld fight... Those hoppers are one of the reasons why some servers are now not active in WWW and just a few of the top servers have full-time queue with more than 3 hours waiting time on it.

    The world transfers aren't meant to be free, they just postponed to charge it untill everything settled down. Now when they FINALLY started to charge it and prevented people from jumping and ruining servers ranking, now they're whining. I couldn't care less if they're charging transfers, because I can always guest at any server I wish if I want to do some PvE there with friends or something... But it's a good thing they finally made this happen and made new server ranks for WWW.

     

    Kyleran, you can't "reroll" on a new server. Once you choose your home server it's your home server permanently and there's no going back. You can always guest at other servers for free while wondering around Tyria and doing some PvE, but you can't play WWW or PVP on that server unless it's your Homeworld (that's why those numbnuts are transfering to the wining server every time).
