It definitely isn't for me or others in my situation, but I can understand that it is fine for someone who is not affected by this.

They couldn't allow decorations with server transfers to be additive, since then someone could copy a character back and forth and increase their total decorations (the total increasing as a fun example of a Fibonacci sequence). So they took the highest number for each decoration between the origin and destination server.
Thanks for pointing this out. I never used a server transfer so I didn't know (and didn't care) that the decorations were copied in the process. It now makes sense to me why they are not just adding the numbers, but it still feels unfair for me and others who never transferred a character.
