We've got a couple of notes from the CMs over on the European forums. First up: free character transfers! Transfers opened today allowing players on some of the highest population PvP realms to move to some of the lower population PvP realms. So if you play on the EU realms Grim Batol, Stonemaul, ...

Today free transfers closed for several EU realms and opened for several more EU realms. Today's transfers are planned to remain open until next Wednesday, the 14th, but the transfer list can be changed at any time, so if you want to take advantage of this, better sooner than later. Currently, playe...

No, it's not broken and there are no technical problems.  However, the system apparently works on a queue basis - and when the queue is filled, it automatically stops accepting new transfer requests.  CM Tseric informs us that the queue system is in place to ensure that the system remains ...

More realms opened up for paid character transfers yesterday, with even more planned for today and the rest of the week.  Though it looks like most realms will be open for transfers by the end of the week, the rules for transfer availability remain the same.  So we're still waiting to see ...

It's no real surprise this service was heading to European shores, but it does surprise me that the rules are slightly different.  While most of the US and EU FAQs are identical, there's a slight difference in when servers are allowed to be open for transfers.  On US realms, transfers are ...

I've spent a long time looking forward to the idea of paid character transfers.  I have two well-geared 60s on an old realm that I abandoned for various reasons, and I'm excited at the prospect of having them available for play on the realm I now call home.  So I've always looked at the p...

Blizzard has officially opened their paid character transfer service today.  The official FAQ on the service appears quite similar to the leaked information we saw last week, so if you read that, there should be no surprises.  However, there is, of course, a catch - at present, only five r...

Looks like Elizabeth's earlier report on paid character transfers was right on the money, as today's report on UkGamespot confirms. They have an interview with Blizzard developer Shane Dabiri, who sheds some more light on the process, including official details for pricing & realm transfer rule...

Blizzard has always held to the premise that global character transfers are not available due to technical limitations - which seems to be confirmed by the problems that plague their official realm transfers.  But occasionally they do things that make you wonder.  Around the time I started...

Terra Nova reports the interesting tidbit that character transfer on-demand could soon be available - at a cost.  While community managers on the official forums have, in the past, confirmed that Blizzard's plan has been to have realm-wide transfers available for a fee, no details or ETA has ev...

While character transfers only opened up early this morning, they seem to already be closed due to technical difficulties that were causing players to transfer to the wrong realm.  No estimate on when they might be back up, but here's to hoping that all is resolved promptly. Update: In a revise...
