Nothing here is direct quotes lmao, this was made so that all the people that haven't been playing for a while can see what has changed xD
I have no connection to GMs, but I am kinda with you on the gpotato cleaning the slates on their gamer info... but T3 may have acquired it with the move. IDK. But as for now, if you didn't transfer, you have to start over... doesn't mean GMs won't take pity on your later on.
If you can prove that you had that gear with screenies or something, send an email to aika with them and maybe they will at least give you the gear back :/
