Here is the information that we have gathered for people who have wrongly lost their titles from transferring. This only applies to people who transferred after they first awarded titles and then lost it when Blizzard redid the titles. If you transferred before the first round of title rewards then it seems that you are out of luck.

It appears that the best course of action is to submit a petition. If we find out any more info to help we will let you know.

Here are some blue responses on the EU customer service forums.
How to submit:

Official Blizzard Quote:

Yes, a little bit of news.

We may be able to assist you. However, to have it looked into, please submit a ticket with the following information:

- Your original name and realm
- The name of the Arena team you earned the title from
- Your new name and realm, and when you transferred


This only applies to players who lost an already awarded Season 4 Gladiator title after a character transfer.
Whether or not you are qualified:

Official Blizzard Quote:

Hi guys,

I'd like to chip in with the procedure the support team is following at the moment to address this issue.

If you were entitled to an Arena title this season, and it either has been lost after transfer or was not awarded at all after transfer, then you should contact us in-game regarding this. We will then pass this onto our technical team for action, and if it is verified that your title loss was due to an unintentional problem then you will be awarded your title as soon as we can run the script to do so.

Please note that if our tech team establish that you are not entitled to a title, that this decision is final, and the Game Master team cannot offer any further assistance.
Here is an email Redundant got after submitting his petition.

good news for people who have lost their titles this way, recently told that they wanted to gather up as many names as possible so they could restore the titles all at once which is easier than one at a time. If you have submitted your information you will be on this list. I then asked that i assume the titles will be given back by this coming wednesday's maintenece and the gm replied it will most likely be sooner than that.

Although during this issue most the gms have been fairly poor. On one occasion a gm told me it was their policy to remove titles after transfers, another told me i was wrong when i said i should get my title because you loose your title upon moving battlegroup and that this was clearly stated in their FAQ. Seriously when you have to tell blizzard staff their own FAQ and correct them its kinda meh.

I think you probably missed the boat by about 3 or 4 months on that. You could always give it a try, but at best all you will get is an old mount.

I had this exact problem in Season 2, I got my title and transferred that day or next. Then on the new server I had the title and mount until an "emergency maintenance" and then lost it. After talking to a ton of GMs, the most popular reason was the title was tied to the server you had the arena team on, but since they were able to verify the team, I was able to get the mount. Overall I've found GMs useful but this was the one time I found their support to be poor. GL to all those trying to get their titles back.

I also got my title, transferred, and between some Thursday and Wednesday lost it. I spammed Tickets the following 2 weeks, nothing happenend, but then a GM told me that they have a new system to proof if someone has received a title or not, and I got the title back (and so did my partner).

(I never lost my mount, it was all the time there)

well i think if you haven't had it by now, you're out of luck.  priest on the same 3's team i got glad with petitioned several times but didn't get his title because apparently the gms he talked too didn't escalate it properly.  in fact they told him that he'd made too many tickets and that they could suspend him for disputing their decision, lol.

Yeah, it doesn't look like this is going to be resolved.  It's not that big a deal though, let's be honest.
