Thread: Selling accounts

  1. #1

    Default Selling accounts

    Why does evony let people sell there accounts?

    Its better than people quitting.Think about it if evony let people sell accounts the people that bought accounts would be spenders so they would spend money.

    And if theyve been ripped off its there fault

    Because you can not sell something that is not yours.

    You do not own the account or the items on the account.

    As random faces above me mentioned, you do not actually own the account. I think the only thing that you really do own is the coins you buy, or something like that...
    Though aside from that the reason people are not actually allowed to sell them is because that money is traded between players at the expense of Evony. People tend to spend a lot of money building their accounts quickly now, if players could sell their accounts then everyone would do it and make a profit while Evony loses a lot of money in the process.

    If a player could choose between spending thousands to speed up the process of their account to make it awesome, or getting an account for maybe a few hundred that's already awesome through hard work (no spending, or minimal spending over it's lifetime), which do you think they would choose?

    Yes, Evony WOULD lose money.

    ^^ Couldn't put it better spooner.

    You don't own your account, so therefore you have no right to sell it. People have actually made money by building their accounts up & then selling them on at a profit. All at a loss for Evony-remember they are a business, they need to make some kind of a profit themselves.

    There are even websites dedicated to the exchange & sale of accounts.

    Thanks to Infinitus for the epic B'day pressie!
