From what i wrote on the Master D forums...
very disappointing from BW.
F2P will not save this server.
F2P will only prolong its death.
We probably have to wait 2 more weeks for F2P. Then BW will evaluate this on our server over a period of 1-3 months minimum. Then they will sit on it for a little bit more. Then they will decide what to do, which is far too unpredictable.
In the mean time paid transfers will hopefully be implemented.
edit!!!! Please voice your concerns over their decision to wait for FTP in this thread and the following thread
