    $24.95 sounds kinda steep. I don't know why someone would pay that but to each his own I guess

    From my understanding, It's actually cheaper then most, if not all, the other games that provide this service. Also take note that some other games that offer this wont let you bring your stuff with you. At least Turbine will let you keep your stuff.

    Yeah 24.95 is pretty ridiculous for a game that seems to be on the downturn.. Whats the point of spending that much to move a character when I might only get to use it for 6 more months?

    It especially seems ridiculous when they just did it for free for many people, I just wasn't lucky enough to get Xoriat moved to Khyber.

    Let me know when the price drops below 10.00, I might consider it then.

    Heh, I thought a month's sub fee would have been enough. Hope turbine's employee's get nice bene's for that extra cash. Bummer!

    I'd hope any extra cash they can skim off their customers would be utilized to stabilize the servers.

    Default Am I seeing this right?

    People... fellow players... WHAT IS THE PROBLEM!? People invest hundreds of dollars a month into Maple Story! We can't spare a measly $25? Just how cheap are you? Get on Maple Story, hop into the Cash Shop, and think about all the cosmetic nonsense people may buy, because the simple fact is they do. NX cards sold at Target usually sell off the shelves in certain areas... I'd say Nexon makes(per the chars I have seen decked with temporary cosmetic apparrel, available for $4-13 per piece) about $12,000/month or more on their Free-To-Play game.

    I think most are missing the point here. Turbine does not WANT to have a lot of transfers, they are offering it because it is now an industry standard. The high price keeps people from moving except when they really, really want to. My guess is that it is not an easy thing to do and / or time consuming. We all know that Turbine has given limited resources to this game, I really do not want them spending it all on character transfers.
