You will be given a list of warnings before completing it, such as:

  • Regional payment support might not be available to which you’re used
  • Ping might be higher
  • Your username might be already taken
  • Friend list won’t transfer with you to the new server.

If you agree to all the conditions, press continue and then log out. Once you log back in after a couple of minutes, the transfer will be ready and you can enjoy your new server.
