There are 2 ways to transfer your characters to a different server:
1) 1000 IM points at any time
2) Event transfer

No one has ever reported in the forum if name change can be done when it is not an event.
Event name change only works if you have an illegal character/symbol in your character's name.
(and it doesn't always work correctly - until you "discuss" it at length with the service center)



To transfer when it is not an event:

Send a email and get a ticket from the Service Center.
Include the following information - for each character you want to transfer.
 1) account name
 2) character name
 3) current server
 4) target server
 5) Include 2 back up names in case your name is taken on that server - or IGG will randomly add a number to your name.

You can have up to 4 characters per account on a server.
There needs to be an open slot - at dock start/select character screen on that account/server in order to transfer

Service Center Link; http://service.igg.com/


It will cost 1,000 IM points for each character transferred  (we have been told* - they have you purchase 1,000 special services packs and that pre-purchase of the packs, before sending the email to support, seems to be ok).


* I have not personally done transfer this way and can not personally verify that this is the correct item to buy, but the service center should tell you what item to buy.

Event Transfer

No One can say exactly when the next transfer event is!!
Stuff Happens!!

But see below for a list of past dates.

Please see the most current announcement in the forum for the most updated information
including fixes and a LOT of detailed information

Last transfer notice link:
Character Name Change & (Server) Transfer Service 8/25-31& 9/1-7


The dates of the event will vary depending on Battleground season (it must be completely over) and medium to large updates if the major bugs are fixed.

In the Recent Past 2017-2020 the transfer events take place in November and May with end of 2019 and 2020 being an exception due to update, COVID, connection, Palenque and other problems.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Event Transfer:

Costs
If you want to transfer a character, you need to pay 1200 credits.
If you want to change character name, you need to pay 500 credits.



Credits
Are earned from buying non-sale IM items
Or
During the transfer and name change event, others can gift you their credits.


---

Credits use to also be "made" by exchanging forum karma into credits.  However, the karma exchange page no longer exists.
Karma WAS earned (Prior to March 2016) in the old forum by participating in forum events or given by moderators as a reward to those who had written helpful posts and/or guides.

for more past event info, just search on "Character Transfer" in the news section
http://vc.igg.com/news/search.php?key=character%20transfer&p=3


**WARNING**
Characters disappear during transfer when;
the character you are transferring is in a game start position 1,2,3,4 (on the dock)... and you already have a character standing in that slot on the server you transferred to.

If you delete the alt that is blocking the spot, your transferred character should show.


If you want to keep both characters ALL you can do is contact support. make sure you get a ticket, and then contact Fok if you dont receive help in about 3 business days.
