So the 90 CC character transfer is back. It's running from November 29th until January 18th. I plan on seeing what Grind.0 does in the way of population increases. Before January, I plan to move characters if the Pot5 situation does not see drastic improvement.
I don't want to have to redecorate my five strongholds. I am very disappointed at this and the prospect of having to grind my way to get gear to do things that I already can do. I'm giving thought to staying here and throwing in the towel if the game becomes unplayable.
I have considered transferring, but then I read this, which caused me to wonder why someone was considering moving his characters off The Shadowlands. Then I found this thread. In my opinion the problem isn't the servers. It's the company that has the broken rudder and is spinning this game around in circles.
