Gratis van realm wisselen in WoW

World of Warcaft-gamers die vaak op ontzettende drukke realms zitten, krijgen binnenkort de mogelijkheid om gratis hun personage naar een nieuwe realm te verplaatsen. Deze realm is gelijkwaardig aan de realm waar ze vandaan komen. Het is niet mogelijk in te stellen naar welke realm je verplaatst gaat worden.

Blizzard heeft dit vandaag aangekondigd om de serverload van deze realms te verlagen. In totaal zijn er achter servers uitgekozen waar gamers uit kunnen stappen. Mensen die in een guild zitten moeten hun Guild Master aanspreken; deze kan namelijk een  Guild Master Realm Transfer kopen waardoor de hele guild naar dezelfde realm verplaatst word.

Zie het volledige bericht van Blizzard hieronder:

We're providing free transfers off of overpopulated source realms that are currently seeing high queue times. If you're on one of the below realms and would like to avoid waiting in queues to play, you can take advantage of these free transfers. We've done our best to match realm types and time zones for a smooth transfer process.

We're planning to allow the current transfers to go until approximately 9:00 a.m. PDT, October 4, but please note that if a large number of people transfer to a destination realm we may need to end the free transfers early. If you're planning to transfer we recommend doing so sooner rather than later.

Although free Guild Master Realm Transfers are not possible at this time, these free character transfers will allow you to retain your guild membership and reputation, provided the guild master completes a Guild Master Realm Transfer to the destination realm first, and does not change factions.
