Yeah I can confirm! EU Hades

I can confirm and have video of this. I’ve literally lost thousands in gold to this BS and just today realized it. :frowning:

I can confirm this as of 10/7 5AM CST. Playing on Dominora. Tried to transfer 200 thick hide for 134 gold. It cost over 2k, I did this twice before noticing that the 9k I had was now 4k. I was in the process of making some items to sell to get over 10k to buy my first house.

Also able to replicate after losing a unsurmountable amount of gold. Essentially you still get charged the full amount of the split regardless of how much you split. So if you have a pile of 1000 starmetal ingots and it costs 4k to transfer the full stack but you just split off 10 and transfer, you still pay the 4k.

I signed up to report this bug as well after noticing my money mysteriously vanishing.

Here’s a video: New World_2021.10.11-21.43_1

As others have said, you get charged for the full stack even if you only transfer a single item. In the video, I lose exactly 33.57 coins; the full stack price for the 395x Gunpowder, when I transferred only one.

This completely ruins any kind of serious stash management.
