Due to community concerns about the effect of free transfers on world versus world, starting on November 1 we are going to change how often players are allowed to transfer worlds. After the update, players will be able to transfer worlds once every 7 days instead of once every 24 hours. We are also actively working on getting the guesting functionality in place. Thank you for your understanding.
With any luck, this should curb the amount of world-hopping done for WvW purposes. Also, it’s great to hear that ArenaNet is actively at work on the game’s guesting feature.
