Since when did TQ not care about money?
allowing DB transfer wouldn't get them anywhere close
to making money. so why would they do it?

Because the DB transfers will have a fairly peculiar chance of being "lost" and then you either give up on CCO and buy back the DB's on 2.0, or buy the DBs anyway to make up what you lost in said "broken transfer".

There's a million ways around anything. It can happen, but there's always going to be a catch.

if that was the case TQ would have just kept DB transfer
when they first released it.

If you remember they had kept it for awhile, with a what 40-50% chance that you'd never get what you transferred?

The difference this time is there's not as much interest in 1 or 2 servers as there are on the rest of the servers as a whole, so even if they had a say 60% to be lost... they'd be able to profit as well as not have enough complains to become an issue.

I love that you're being optimistic and all, but track records with shady people/companies like this don't instantly change... as great as that idea sounds. I'm not convinced that any of this crap is real honestly, they can do 20x better with barely any effort and that's always been the case.

Should make it so if you break your gears they disappear, like old times.

TQ has made some pretty dumb decisions but i doubt they
are that dumb, sorry

Clearly they have recognized their mistakes by the
42% lost in net value just this last year. =/ that number
might be made up. i forget the exact number ^_^

I wouldn't say they're stupid either, that's just shady business. The only problem I see with net values and what not is they also take into effect the curb of people spending less after they get the best they can, or what they want. It's not strictly who quit, etc. Which somewhat backs up both sides of if DB Transfer comes back or not... just depends on which way you look at it.

And i'd be game for the 0 Dura breaking again. I've lost a couple things from it, but if someone's dumb enough to idle where it can happen... I think it should. I've been on both sides, losing it without paying attention and being part of a group that went after one of the big bulkers back before 2nd RB breaking his gear while he sat idle.
