Craig “Cougar” Turner, WildStar’s Director of Operations, announced on the Twitch stream that they are preparing the server transfer for tonight, and will give further update tomorrow. There were some technical issues while they were implementing this feature on the live servers, and they’ve been working on fixing it, with the hope of getting it out for official launch. At the same time, they have to decide what their policy will be on payed vs free transfers. They want to discourage people from doing the ‘switch to temp server while queues die down then switch back’.
We’ve been talking about having Realm Transfers, we have a 2PM go/no go as to if we’ll have this going live tonight. We’ll have both paid and unpaid Realm Transfers for ya’ll.
Since this is real time information, there will be more details later. (source)
We’ll likely just prevent all paid transfers to the biggies (Hazak/Pergo) and never offer free ones there. (source)
