Don't buy a game account

Every now and then we come across cases of account trading, especially when we are dealing with player requests for account recoveries. Those cases almost always end up with the account buyer being scammed by the seller, who ends up reaping an unfair profit at the buyer's expense. Unfortunately, a lot of account buyers often do not realize the risk that they expose themselves to. This article contains some of our account security pro tips and common examples of fraud and scamming that we encounter on a daily basis.

Never buy an account from anyone, ever. They are almost certainly attempting to scam you. Also, account trading is against our Terms of Use and will get your account permanent banned.

Understanding account security

Our account security is based on a principle of secure hidden credentials, which are closely linked with your signup information. For example, your username (the name/id email you use to log in) is considered to be secure because no one can see it in-game. The only way for someone to know your username is if you tell them. Knowledge of secure credentials such as these help us identify a player as the account owner, since there is no other way to verify ownership of something that isn't physical in nature.

If you share your account details with anyone else, they can pose as you online (i.e. in a player Customer Support) and it will be impossible for us to verify who the original owner was. In this case, we will have no choice but to ban the account in order to prevent further fraud.
