Transferred

Over a week ago, I transferred from Maguuma to Devona's Rest. WvW said I am not a citizen and not eligible to earn pips until after a match has ended, IE, the 6 or so days it had counted. Well that time expired and now it shows a new match, but it is still telling me I am not eligible to earn pips and all I need is ten more skirmish tickets for my Warclaw. Did I miss something? Can I not earn any pips for a month or something after transferring? I tried to search the forums but I cant find a concrete answer, any help appreciated!

    I believe the penalty is up to two WvW resets, that will be two weeks.

    Two resets. Most people transfer right before a reset happens so it's not two full weeks and just a little over one.

    One full matchup

  • I transferred last Saturday, (16th) so I take it I have to wait another week... Ugh, been playing this game forever and I have never server transferred before until my best friend started playing.

    Just wait a little bit. Capture and stuff with others and it'll eventually hasten the time. Meaning you got to participate in your new world's wvw.

    Not Even Coverage is the Only broken thing in WVW.

    Yes you’ll need 1 full matchup to start getting pips again, meaning you’ll start getting next week at reset. Usually the best time to transfer is a day before reset so you only lose 1 week of pips.

    But I applaud you for transferring off a strong server.

    Always move on a Friday, before the reset otherwise you have to wait 1 full MU week + however many days when you first transfered.

    Yeah if you time it wrong like right after a reset you get all that week plus 1. It's so you can't go and earn diamond pips by sat night then transfer to bypass the no pip penalty
