    Default Auto-Divorce On Transfer?!

    This seems a pretty heavy-handed approach? I had noticed this weekend when changing shards that, even when your "spouse" transfers with you, if one (or both) have to change names it messes up the indication of who your spouse is.

    What needed to be done was a correct pointer to the other character's GUID (instead of just a hard snapshot reference to their name), so that no matter how many times names and shards are changed, the information will be correct. Pass by reference, not value.

    The shotgun-divorce approach here is not the answer. What about RPers that don't want to get a divorce? What about the cost of the re-marriage? Obviously 1p is a pittance, but the effect is to introduce the first direct cost to our wonderfully-free transfer system.

    People really will complain about anything, won't they?

    I'm curious how RPers handle the transferring of characters between servers?

    I'm worried if I get divorced my 2H hammer will become a 1H mace!

    I don't know... it's just sort of the principle of the thing.

    On a positive note, this makes it easy to make a clean getaway from someone you regret marrying ;)

    Look at your post, now back to mine, now back to your post, now back to mine. Sadly, it isn't mine, but if you stopped being nonconstructive and dumb and started posting about something that makes sense, it could look like it's mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're on a page with the post your post could look like. Anything is possible when you post like me, and not like an idiot. I'm on a forum.

    Well what is Vegas in this game?

    The closest thing I guess would be Fortunes Shore, it's in a desert and it's the only place with any form of gambling.

    It costs 1 plat to get re-married and saves our CS department a boat load of petitions through this system. While we know it's not ideal perhaps you can use it as a chance to renew your vows if you transfer again in the future?

    Cheers,

    Yess. I'll bet it plays out like an episode of Law & Order. That would be some incredible RP.
