Wait you're not allowed to share(sell/transfer?) accounts? Fascinating. Wonder if it'll ever be enforced.

You really think they will? They honestly dont care. They just dont want responsibility.

Nah, I just like to keep pointing it out. They didn't do anything to energy glitchers either.

I don't plan on buying/selling/giving away an account anytime soon, but you know..

Frankly, who cares if anyone is giving away their account? When I finally get bored/give up/get a life, whatever the case may be, I wouldn't want to see all the effort I put into this game wasted.. And might even want to, not sell, but give away my account to let's say a fellow syndicate member that would continue to build up my account strong and all of the work I put into this game would not be wasted. I know you all wouldn't.. So why do you care if others give away theirs?

Attrition is part of how people "catch up" in games like this.

If selling/transfering/sharing accounts were allowed eventually there would be invincible accounts sitting on pedestals, and not even the most insane level of stat inflation would allow anyone to catch them. At that point, the game grinds to a halt and Gree shuts it down.

It also becomes a fairness issue during events. If account sharing were allowed, what's to stop a group of players swapping one account around during a leaderboard event and taking rank #1/1st place? Or what's to stop a group of 60 people in one syndicate all sharing their accounts with an affiliated syndicate in an attempt to outrank a team they would not be able to defeat on their own?

Those were rhetorical questions, but the answer to both is "nothing".

And how exactly would players do that? The health bar will still be the same when they pass the account over..

Gold. If one person can use one vault on their account, and 60 people can use 60 vaults on one shared account, which account do you think has the advantage? Edit: the shared account would not only have the advantage of 59 vaults more than the "legit" account, it would also probably get however much bonus gold $6000 is good for (until Gree bans it, of course).

People do this anyway.. GREE can't stop me if I wanted to give someone else irl a $100 iTunes gift card for a vault of gold and they have no way to prove that I did. Account sharing wouldn't change that, it would just allow people to keep old accounts live and thriving.

If a syndicate decided to give one player in their syndicate all of their money to get a top spot or if one player decided to buy 60 vaults of gold to get a top spot GREE wouldn't be able to tell and they wouldn't really care as they're getting their money's worth either way.

Itunes gift cards are region specific and are invalid outside the region in which they were purchased. What you're talking about here can and does happen, but it's not the same as account sharing.

This is not account sharing. This is pooling funds. There is a difference.

Exactly, and what you were referring to was pooling funds, when 60 players spend 60 vaults on one account, shared or not.

But back to my point.. I think sharing accounts is stupid.. But you should be able to give away your account so another player can enjoy it without the account and everything you put into it being banned.

Back to the actual point, if this were allowed it would eventually lead to untouchable accounts and the game grinding to a halt.

Regaring the pooling of funds, sharing accounts only serves to make it that much easier. iTunes codes are region specific and do not work outside the region in which they were purchased. Getting around that by transferring an account so someone can buy gold for it in a different region is no different than sharing the account for any other reason. Something else that happens when people do this is they can collectively operate the account 24/7, when most other normal accounts cannot be played that way. So what I was referring to was a little deeper than just the sharing of money. It creates imbalance any way you slice it.

Why? A new player can have decent stats without spending a fortune? No way.

Lol. I spotted a loophole. I notice that the rules don't cover adoption :)

Well, I lost 2 phones and with them 2 accounts. Did I even get a ticket from Gree? F*ck, of course not. They are friggin' useless. I won't start another. But I can see lots of very good, and reasonable reasons, why people would want to be a foster parent to someone else's account.

... You further agree not to ... use or distribute cheats, exploits, automation software, bots, hacks, mods or any unauthorized third party software designed to modify any userís experience with the Service.

Does this mean accts and teams in CC, MW & KA that use the GroupMe Battle Bot can be banned? Or is that authorized? Costs like $5/mo. Is GREE getting a chunk of that?

What about using chat apps? The ingame chat is pretty useless and unused.
