When I try it says: "The character transfer service is currently unavailable.
Please check back later."

Anyone know about this?

Hey there,

Over the past few days, we’ve noticed some issues with the Character Transfer service that caused players to be unable to use their newly-transferred character. While the team investigates the issue, we have taken Character Transfers offline.

Players who have a character in an unusable state following a transfer, please submit a ticket to CS so that we can get the unusable character fixed. If you have already submitted a ticket to CS, the team has been given the information and is working to get you back in a good state.

Thank you for your understanding, and we will keep you updated on the return of transfers!

Are you bringing it back with the free transfers from the other day(night)?

I'm hoping they give us free transfers to make up for the downtime. I wanted to finish transferring my legacy but now I have toons split across 3 servers.

The transfers were never intended to be free. It was a side effect to one of the changes they made, so when it's back up, it'll likely be at its normal price

You don't really believe that do you? They had a web page built for it and everything - the free moves were from certain servers to a certain server only.

Every server was available for transfer. I may have (ab)used it for a few character name changes, but there definitely was every server to every server available. The list had "pre-choice" buttons at the right with servers I had characters on, so I didn't need to select a server, wait on it loading, select the character, then wait on the transfer server list to load up - but every server was available on both sides of the list.

The "web-page" they "built" for it was just a list of available US servers that someone copy/pasted from the Transfer page, and the list obviously changed from it being copy/pasted to me seeing it, cause I double checked after people asked - it didn't have EU servers on it, but they clearly were when I went to the page.
