Kinship Renames are Available again!
We are pleased to announce that Kinship renames are again available. Previously, players had to pay $12.95, €11.49, £9.95 or 1550TP for these renames, but there will no longer be a cost associated with them! These will be offered free to players who are either VIP, or Premium players have purchased Turbine Points within the last 45 days.
To submit a Kinship rename request, the Kinship leader will need to submit an In-Game support ticket by pressing Esc while logged in, and then going to the Help options.
We don't yet have an ETA on when Character undeletes and transfers will be available again. We will post any announcements about them as soon as we have them.
Once again, there endeth the quote.
Oh goodie! Now all those people who have been clamoring for Kinship renames will finally be able to make all their dreams come true! I think I may ask my Kinship leader to change the name of our group just because he can! I even have some suggestions, like Terribly Disappointed and The Near Future Is More Than Four Months Away!
Really? This is what the Customer Service team decided to address first? There have been multiple threads about character transfers and undeletes and they have been totally ignored. It would have been a nice if when this debacle started they had told us that it was going to take more than a fiscal quarter (at least) to fix. Some of us might have made other choices, rather than waking up each morning for the last four months and thinking, "Today is the day!"
Because you know, after a certain point, it goes from Paid Services not being available to Paid Services no longer existing, except for one, which makes it Paid Service.
All that glitters is not gold, but if it is, I call dibs on it.
