Send credits from one person to another

RE: Send credits from one person to another
I have thought about this option in the past though, wanting to share with friends. Its a nice idea, and I know your motives behind it are only out of generosity, but it just has that one really big hole in it.

RE: Send credits from one person to another
Let's assume that you couldn't send the credits you got for free, because limiting that is not hard to do.

Even if so, people here tend to be less than careful about their passwords (and by that I mean that they'll let random "friends" on their accounts, and then cry that their account was "hacked" when the blame is fully on themselves for having shared the password in the first place), so this is a no-go.
Imagine the problems that would arise if someone was "hacked" (read: shared their password with the wrong person). Ultimately it would lead to that person losing their credits and complaining a lot, or what's worse, depending on applicable law the Donkins might have to refund the account, meaning that they'd lose money on this.

Definitely no. On the other hand, I wouldn't oppose to being able to purchase credits in someone else's name.

It's a bad idea; you'll end up with stolen credits, stolen accounts and also token farming.
Not difficult to create various alts to get the free give-aways and then send them all to your main account.

Bad idea. They might hack into your account. Say a 21 year old wanting creadits.

Hacking into your account is, unless the Donkins are really stupid (which they have shown not to be), virtually impossible. The computing power needed to break a password hash is worth more than all the accounts in the game collectively.

On the other hand, if you share your password, you've quite liable to this kind of "hack" -- but that's really your fault for sharing the password in the first place, isn't it?

If someone was able to hack someone's account. They'd just hack the whole game.

Or maybe a 10 yr old. But like Inuyasha pointed out, it is very expensive... and that person might as well just buy credits. But you never know, those people are out there lurking in the forest...

The hardware needed to make password cracking feasible is worth several thousand dollars at the very least, nobody would buy that stuff to hack a BEO2 account.

yea computing power needed to break pw hash is big but by going thru most used passes-list can in theory get access into many accounts and also some users pass might be same as their login.
