How much work is it for Admins to transfer characters to a new account?

I am aware VG is not offering this service, But I am just curious How many hours this take / what would be a reasonable price If this server would be offered.

We used to do this back in the day. As a GM, I did rerolls for 30 Euro if it was to a different class and 15 Euro if it was the same class but different faction.

But obviously this didn't work out.

I read the question again, as you suggested, and you know what? My answer is still the same...

I'll add that it takes a few hours.

At Ridiculus, why did it not work out?

I would def pay more than 30 euro If one of my chars could be on another account.

And btw, Bio is right. I asked about a account transfer, not a Class or faction Reroll.

Because GMs had to do the transfers. Zeard couldn't/didn't make a program for it to be done automatically.

It was just too much to do for the GMs.

Edit: No Bio is not right. It is the same thing. We're literally talking about the same thing. Bio is just dense when it comes to this topic and he's trying to be haughty.

So basically, this would be an option if it is economic for VG staff. I would love to contribute moneywise to VG in this way. The current available donations are not interesting for players who have all classes geared up alrdy.

Gogo VG staff, give out some Xmas presents and make sure you have the money to buy some too!

Code:
UPDATE characters SET account_id="<id of account you want the character on>" WHERE name="<your character name>";

Something like this should work fine. This would be a great option to add to the donate shop imo. I might even use it.

If characters are just objects in a SQL table than yea what accurate said would work lol. It is however possible that its not that simple in vanilla days and ALSO I have no idea what kind of spaghetti code VG runs on so it's quite possible it's more complex than that.

Also yes please I've been wanting to do this for my Priest who is on the same account as my warrior for a long time and I know a few others who want to do it as well. I've never spent money on this server (because I like to earn everything) however this is something that can't be earned in game and I would actually spend money on.
