Character Transfers

Please, please, PLEASE allow players to pay to have their characters to be transferred from one server to another!

This would be especially beneficial to players who accidentally create a character on the wrong server or just want to migrate them to a more/less active server. To give you an idea, Star Wars - The Old Republic (SWTOR) allows players pay Cartel Coins (their version of currency - just like NX is used for Nexon games) to transfer their characters to another server. Please refer to the FAQ explaining SWTOR character transfers to see how they have it working.

Not only could this be a popular feature, especially if players are willing to pay for the ability, it would also be a great way to generate even more money to Nexon and Mabinogi's continuing development.

For its age, Mabinogi really is a great game that still has much untapped potential.

    Don't know why the poll wasn't added from my initial post. Sorry about that!

    This has been discussed SEVERAL times already and usually those posts get locked. There's just too many variables and some people aren't even sure the transfer can be done (even though Korea allegedly has this ability already) safely without anying losing anything. If it was 100% safe 100% no lost items and your PETS were all transferred too, then yeah i'd pay for it.

    I wasn't aware of any past discussions as I just started playing this a couple months ago and the Mabinogi customer support said I should post my suggestion on the Feedback forum - so that is exactly what I did. :)

    Anyhoo, I just got back into playing SWTOR since the summer and it seems they recently did a server merger. It was a bit of a shock but is kinda nice considering I had characters spanning across 4 different servers, and now my account is easier to manage. I've also just transferred a couple characters over to my new preferred server and it seems that no change has been made to the process in that regard (except for the number of servers and their names). The only reason I brought the topic up regarding another MMO is to point out that it can be done and seeing how the succession of recent events came together in support the new talent launch for Mabinogi, I have no doubt their IT people can be just as meticulous in organizing a server merger, character transfer option, or both... not to mention with all the money they are no doubt making off these gachas (and now the Shy's Night Sky Shop event), they can certainly afford to make it happen.

    The time you started playing has nothing to do with using or not using Search. It takes no effort to look. This one has been ongoing for 9 years (carried over from the old forum). What some other game did has nothing to with what this game does, this is not some other game. ~ I don't mean to look like a jerk, but this isn't something most of us want (in fact, most of us are sick to death of talking about it; it's driving us crazy).

    KR is currently allowing transfers, but that doesn't mean it'll happen here (doesn't mean it wont either; and it certainly doesn't mean we need a new thread about it every week until then).. http://forums.mabinogi.nexon.net/discussion/13804/forgotten-name-server-change-is-in-kr/p1

    Crushing the servers together is not going to increase revenue .. or increase the player base. If anything it'll reduce the player base, as the server will be too full to meet the required space needed for the entire population to play. You haven't seen lag or latency until 28 channels become 7.
