I like that.
If you want to GIVE YOUR ACCOUNT AWAY — not trade it, not sell it, and meaning you will never play it ever again — you may do so. Just be aware that the person you give your account to will not be entitled to use support for things like account recovery/hack issues because support uses the original email that registered the account for account verification.
In the past, I was tired about this thing. As soon an account, which a person played and then gave to a friend, because he or she quitted 9Dragons (for what reasons ever…), it was viewed as “account sharing” and the account was banned permanently. And seriously… The people will always find a way to get what they want. This rule was just giving the support and GMs more work.
I always was wondering why they had this rule anyway. I mean, if somebody get for example a high level character from a friend which quitted 9Dragons, then this may even bring Acclaim more money. With especially a high level character, with maybe nice items which cost today a sick fortune, this new player might get really interested into 9Dragons. And happy players will always bring money.
But what I also like, is that it is still forbidden to share accounts, like [GM]Fugen say. He declare it as follows:
The reason we have a no account sharing rule is two-fold:
1) It’s not fair to other players if you share accounts, having multiple people log on for 24 hours a day power-leveling the characters while everyone else is studying, working, or sleeping.
2) 99% of the time when an account gets hacked, it’s because players give out their information to someone else — a “friend,” through downloading programs they shouldn’t like hacks that have keyloggers in them, to gold-selling or power-leveling sites that steal your info, etc. And it’s very time-consuming to restore accounts for our support team.
Well, we could discuss now about the first point. It is also not fair for people which doesn’t use Experience Cards from the Item Mall to work as double so hard as exp-card-junkies. The Experience Cards were the worst thing which could happen to this game. Since we got these, people without knowledge reach the level capture while they keep asking a vagabond if this one is from black or white clan, and we got a totally messed up ingame economy.
For the 2nd point, there is an easy solution, without to make the players angry: No support for shared accounts.
Whatever the reasons for the “no account sharing rule” are, it’s not important, as long the right goal is aimed.
Fugen, whatever you take these days… Take more! Seems to be good for the game!
