As a main WvWer, the server I'm on has a significant impact on how (or if) I will be playing the game. Right now I want to play with my friends, but they are all on a different server. Now of course, I could transfer, but I think the gem costs are unreasonably high and not worth it. Transferring to a "very high" populated server costs more than $20 worth of gems
Eliminating the gem cost for transfers makes sense when you consider the fact that people who play the other game modes don't need to pay extra just to be able to play with their friends. Only WvWers have this added cost. I'm completely okay with paying for shinies, in-game benefits, etc, but to play with my friends? That should just be a given, right? Let me know what you guys think.
