Some news that Netease have removed the regional restrictions on the servers so now we will be able to transfer across any realm.


http://www.marbridgeconsulting.com/marbridgedaily/2009-06-15/article/27001/netease_to_remove_regional_barriers_between_mainland_wow_servers

Obviously this serves some benefits as foreigners and chinese on both factions who utilize this site (along with their friends who don't) could potentially setup on the same server and organize some world pvp events. Which I think even the hardcore PvE people can even enjoy. Or those who have already established their characters but don't really have many people to play with can merge up.

With at least 4 days before the servers are planned to go up this is a topic worth discussing.

Hmm, this article actually seems to suggest that your character can be transferred anywhere, at anytime, and for free? How many times can we do this? Just at the new account creation on their Battle.net system?

It's just not that clear if this is a paid character transfer service, or some feature of the Battle.net system. And in fact, there was no region restriction before for character transfers, you just had to pay an extra 30 kuai.

As far as i can understand from this article this option is only available when the servers are up and running again. Only then they would grant you the free freedom to move your char around and choose your server to play on from that point on. Whenever you wanna move your char again you'll have to pay.

I would think that's a fair deal for all the inconvenience caused with all this downtime.

Wyeme, before with transferring there were regional restrictions, you could transfer from between like district 1 and 4. But transferring between district 1 and 2 was impossible. I assume its a one time deal from the article when you log in. Further transfer I believe will cost money.

But that's probably the best case scenario, they might just have all your characters aready set on the regions and they just allow you transfer out from there at the cost of one or two cards.

Still I think this a great benefit than from before where there were a lot of people either on district 1 or 2 but unable to play together due to how The9 grouped the districts.

They usually offer free transfer to new realms from realms that are high in population. As for mass free transfer I have a hard time believing that. I think our characters will be on our original servers and then we will be able to transfer from there for a small fee. However allowing people to choose their server upon logging on seems unrealistic. Would cause huge server balance in my opinion and just the sheer of amount of data would overwhelm the servers.

.......could be a recipe for disaster if the don't regulate it (as the9 didn't) we will end up with servers full of one faction or another rather than a balance. I really hope they use this to sort out the current mess with regards to this. I know for one my server is totally alliance dominated, that is gonna be some evil pile o shite when everyone hits northrend at the same time.

Well going back on previous posts on the transitional forums it seems like the system is setup to allow you to log into any server at any time. I don't know exactly how that will work but the link is here.

If someone could clarify that would be excellent.

That's what it seems like the news is delivering but it still seems a little far fetched but that would be pretty cool but it would seem to cause massive server imbalances and how would Netease handle the information? I still think it just means we are allowed to pick our server upon logging on.
