Dear Players

 

 

 

In simplicity.

 

  • Account selling is strictly prohibited.
  • Account sharing is discouraged for your security. Any conduct happening on your account from someone else, is your issue / responsibility. Keep your password secure to avoid being permanently banned by someone else's actions, and avoid downloading random mods from the internet which often contain password stealing Trojans.

 

Account Selling.

Any apparent act of attempting to sell your account, or another account, is strictly prohibited.

​Any such discussion or comments relating to this topic, will result in permanent game bans being placed on first offense.

The intent of the players actions is not relevant, "in jest" is not an excuse, so please avoid "jokes" where you will not find the outcome funny.

 

Some examples

  1. PlayerA posting "I think I might sell my account, pm me offers" in any of our communication platforms will result in the account being permanently banned.
  2. PlayerA posting "I'm selling my friends account, pm me offers" in any of our communication platforms will result in PlayerA being permanently banned, and the "friends" account being investigated for possible action.
  3. PlayerA conducting account selling discussions, on Ebay, teamspeak, Facebook, or any other communication platforms we do not control, may result in accounts being investigated for possible action. However proof is required and proof is sometimes difficult to obtain in platforms outside of our control. PlayerA posting "PlayerB's account is for sale" on Ebay because PlayerA dislikes PlayerB and is trying to get him banned is a common practice in online gaming.

 

Or in other words.

This http://forum.worldoftanks.asia/index.php?/topic/52246-sell-acc/

Leads to this quickly http://worldoftanks.asia/community/accounts/2003475463-__STOP__/

20,000 games or not.. Paying player or not.. Premium player or not. the terminate button does not discriminate.
So don't do it, accounts may not be sold, and are terminated permanently upon first offense for anything to do with attempting to sell an account.

 

If a player is attempting to sell an account within our platform, please remain within our rules yourself and simply press the "report" button within the forums, or lodge the complaint to support. http://asia.wargaming.net/support/ .. While account selling isn't permitted, forum violations aren't either.

 

 

Please keep this topic solely on the topic of Account Selling.

 

And abide by the normal forum rules when replying.

We understand your frustration, but forum rule violations aren't permitted either.

 

For further topics of your interest please refer to the main thread

Also, does Piloting accounts for CW and Tourneys fall into this category?

What is WG's stand on clans piloting alt clan accounts?

As this post is titled "selling / sharing" it raises the question about sharing. 

 

I remember that in atleast patch 9.0 the pre-match screen read that sharing accounts is prohibited and would lead to a permanent game ban for both parties yet i recall seeing various forum posts stating otherwise due to the apparent use of "Internet cafe accounts".

 

Where is the line drawn? Between sharing with family members, retired players donating their inactive account to their clan to sharing active accounts with online friends.

 

Cheers.

I think the point is that account selling is illegal, account sharing is discouraged, but legal.  You can still share accounts, but do so at your own risk.  If you share your account with someone and they do something malicious (eg sell off all your tanks) or illegal and get banned, you wear the consequences.  Saying "Please unban the account, it wasn't me playing it" is not a defense.

The recent update with the contact list showed me that around 70% of all my contacts are either inactive, renamed (sold account) or played now by other people. Well, I think is normal that people come and go, but I was a bit surprised that so many are not playing anymore. It Took me a while to sort out my contacts....

piloting accounts for CW = Account sharing, so that falls under discouraged category.

 

For tourney, I have no idea.

Tournaments typically have strict rules against having accounts piloted by ringers/pilots/sharing info. I believe if the rules state as such (ie not sure if its 100% of all tournaments as I've not participated in Tourneys personally in a while) it will likely at the very least disqualify your team outright.

I'll try this again, but let me be clear this time that it's a Question

 

Account sharing is discouraged but not allowed. 

Account selling is not allowed.

You can rent tanks in game (apparently)

 

Are you allowed to rent accounts for CW? (Like Stronghold Mercenaries I suppose) i.e. the practice of having accounts rented to CW for CW battles?

 

plz no 7day IP ban this time, I genuinely want to know.

Hello.

 

You can rent players for CW/CW battles with gold and they can use the Wargaming account they use, which is similar structure for strongholds Mercs.

Accounts themselves though can not be rented, or rented out, or transferred, bought, sold, ETC.
