Don't buy accounts!

Account trading is an illegal practice in which everyone loses, both the buyer and the seller. The reason is simple: Since it goes against our Terms of use and threatens the entire community, the account is eventually suspended.

Not to mention the risk of seeing how the seller recovers the account, leaving the buyer all dressed up... with no money or account to go to. Since the only person who can use an account is its creator, he can request to have it returned, which leaves the buyer empty handed.

Even if the seller has a higher rank and is offering the account at a bargain price, don't take the bait. It's probably a scam that will leave you with nothing in the end. And since it's an illegal practice within our community, we won't be able to give you a refund, and you won't be able to keep the account.

Here are some important tips on how to avoid falling for these kinds of scams:

  • Have you seen anyone offering to sell their account on social media or have you been approached by a player willing to sell it to you? Sound the alarm and send us a ticket reporting the issue. Don't forget to include screenshots!
  • Are you tempted to buy an account? Don't do it! You'll end up losing both the account and your money.
  • Remember that the account might have been banned, temporarily or permanently.
  • "A friend of mine bought one and didn't have any issues." Don't believe it. Create your own account and use it to claim some victories you can truly be proud of!
