What would you pay to leave a dying server?

One hundred and thirty-five bucks -- that's what Lord of the Rings Online charges for six character transfer tokens to move your fleet of alts from a dying server to one with a bright future. Nevermind that you weren't the one who turned the server into a ghost town and that it's entirely within a studio's power to make merges happen some way or another; you're the one who foots the bill to escape a dead server.

And sometimes that bill is just not worth paying. I admit to shelling out a huge amount of money (a few hundred dollars) to consolidate and transfer my old Star Wars Galaxies accounts and characters, and it was worth every penny because it was my favorite MMO and I played it every single day and needed a vibrant server and economy to have a good time. But when it comes to an MMO I play as casually as Lord of the Rings Online, I have to draw the line. Especially as a crafter, I just won't pay that kind of money (or ask my guildies to do the same) to move my alts, which often means I don't go back at all and the game gets nothing from me.

What about you -- what would you pay to leave a dying server? How much do you have to love the game before shelling out for transfers is worth it?

LOTRO has quite good reputation though, so I am hopeful its just an oversight. This is why I have at most 2 main characters... And I'd have to love the game to feel it worth it. In MxO you could catch up fast enough it wasn't warranted, so not sure how much I'd pay.
