I'm not surprised they're in 1.5. 1.5 is the launch of F2P, and they expect 50 million people to play the game when F2P hits. Cause it's awesome, everyone loves it and wants to play it.

They are taking the wait and see approach with paid transfers just as they are with poor APAC server populations. It makes sense for a game that has just launched. As allowing people to transfer would cause more unstability in server populations. However, for a game thats been out for a while and is going F2P, I doubt they'll get much more than they have now. Taking the wait and see approach in this situation, will more than likely hurt them.
