    Account selling...

    Hey guys, i was wondering is account selling / buying allowed or you can get banned for it?

    Let me translate the TOS for you on this.

    If you can make money from something in the game, that would take money away from R2, then it is against the rules. since you selling your account robs r2 of making some other sucker, uhm i mean player, spend money on the game, it is banned.

    The level of proof is set by the R2 admin on a individual case basis.... what may be considered proof in one case, may not be proof in another....

    players need to forward whatever proof they have, to the R2 admin and let the admin make a ruling.....

    It has to be irrefutable proof. Forum posts, PMs with first person screenshots and common seller markets are the norm. If you get any of those, you're in business.

    On the other hand, someone on S9 a couple months ago was joking around in world chat saying he was selling his account for something like 10 000$ (which was rediculous considering was an average player) and after a couple days he got his account banned. Again, all this for a JOKE.

    But again, back then there was only like 50 servers total, maybe they cared and now they don't anymore; I can't tell.

    But I can tell they DO ban accounts for selling or even ATTEMPTING to sell.

    Someone once did that on S5; someone from S1XX wanted to sell their account and started little ones on a lot of servers to spam WC. I faked interest, got all the stats, name, server #, vip level, etc of said character in screenshot and then reported all that info to the devs. 3;D Hehehehe.
    Devs said they'd take appropriate measures. Not sure if said person got banned, can't check.

    Since accounts trading and selling aren't exactly easy to be proven, it is hard for devs/mods to find out if people committed it or not. Well... even though we have proofs, send tickets, the players in question (which I have a few examples) aren't banned. So it is likely to be ignored. And please don't say that I'm being negative or something like such, since I'm only stating the fact me and my guildies have been looking at since the past month.

    i wouldn't punish my worst enemy by selling them my account for this crappy pos game. it should be against international law, not just the game/forum rules.

    The vast majority of MMOs usually have some kind of rule against the sale (buying and selling/gifting) of accounts. Piloting is also usually frowned upon.

    You will be banned for selling/trading/gifting accounts. You can also be banned for offering to sell/trade/gift an account or offering to purchase an account.
