Your twitter says yes, your updates says no, and your community managers says “we will look into it” (this is not a dig at the community managers, they work with what they got)
I am kinda stuck in limbo here, i wish to play with some friends in another region, and i am considering starting a new character there since regional transfers might or might not be a thing anymore.
But i have a relatively high level characters with a bunch of its trade skills leveled up to a high level in another region, which was made there because of population issues and because i was led to believe that it would not matter where my character was located because when the character transfers was implemented, it would allow you to transfer between regions.
And when i say “led to believe”, i dont mean i was told by someone in-game, or i read an article on kotaku that said it would happen, it was straight up stated that regional transfers would be a thing in a tweet from this games official twitter account, which has now been deleted for obvious reasons.
But lets say i start a new character in my friends region, i have already wasted over a week of playtime on my first character, and it has my preferred name as well attached to it, but i cant just straight up delete it either in case regional transfers suddenly becomes a thing again.
And if i grit my teeth and go through the same content, the same trade skill grind, the same whatever, to try and catch up to my friends which are now max level, and they then announce regional transfer implementation… Well, then i just wasted even more time on a new character, which could have been spent on maxing out my original character to get it ready to play with my friends.
Point is, it is hard to commit to something when you dont have any clear information about whats going on, or what might happen in the future. And if you cant commit to the things you do, then you end up doing other things.
And yes, this is just a game, but then again, what do you spend on your games? you spend your time and you spend your money, and nobody likes to have either wasted because of unclear information.
