View Full Version : PVP Account to Account Transfers Down

I've been attempting to get one character transferred to another account on my current PVP server, Venekor.  Currently, this is impossible.  SOE is working on allowing server to server transfers for PVP servers, so I'm assuming they disabled the tools that allow such a thing to occur. The automated mechanism for transferring your character, whether from account to account or server to server, has been limited such that PVP servers are not included in the options.  Not realizing that this isn't possible, I had activated a second account, and am a double-paying customer.  This is becoming increasingly aggravating, as I'm unable to play the character I want on this new account, and allow a friend to play on the initial account simultaneously.  What I'm asking is for an ETA from the devs on when I can be able to do this transfer, so that I may disable the second account if need be.  I'd rather not be paying some extra money if I could temporarily disable the account until this is fixed.  If this information can't be released currently, could I please get a clarification regarding if account to account transfers will be added back in, period?  It'd save me a lot of time if I were to know that they won't be reincluded even when the server to server transfers are implemented.  I've tried calling you, I've tried the email support twice, and have yet to recieve a solid answer.  All I've recieved is "we're sorry its down, it may or may not be up again sometime in the future."  I'd appreciate at least knowledge that it either will or will not be reimplemented.  If anyone is having the same trouble, and would like a response, please input.

Here is a picture of what is currently on their Character Transfer Service webpage regarding PVP account to account transfers.  This implies to me that account to account transfers have been available for quite some time. <img src="http://img509.imageshack.us/img509/4088/screencx7.png" border="0">

<p>Actually it is totally automated. I moved Luciane to my 2nd account where coder is. Benji is on my long running eq2 account. Both accounts have active Darathar pvp toons. </p><p>I went through the automated service and it was done there and then, the only tricky part you will have  (if they bring it back up) is that i was paying for one account on one credit card and a different card for the other, it wasnt a major issue as i could still prove it was my account.</p>

Its coming later down the road though. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

<p>They already posted and said its going to be down while they sort it out fully. It came up for a few hours while they were testing it, and its is down while they add in the free transfers from Euro servers.</p><p>Forum search FTW! <img src="/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p>Edit: In fact you dont even need to search, its 3 posts under yours!

<p>One advantage of VOX is that you can use Exchange to move a character from one account to another. You just have to make sure you set the price high enough that someone dont buy your toon! So set the price high enough that if they did buy your toon you would be "very" happy. But Exchange is a viable way to get a toon to transfer between two disparate accounts.</p><p> I suspect the transfer service is down while they try to program all the free and pay transfer between servers they did not use to allow before. <img src="/smilies/2e207fad049d4d292f60607f80f05768.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p><img src="http://eq2players.station.sony.com/signature?characterId=536126121" border="0"></p>
