So as many of you Fantagians know, Fantage has introduced a new stricter rule set into MyMall. The rules will pop up everytime you enter MyMall, which I can imagine is getting pretty tiring for regular visitors.
So I’ll break down each rule for everyone now, and try to explain why it’s there.
Do not trade items: Fantage doesn’t want people to get scammed because it makes people sad, and it leaves Fantage with too many emails and user’s items to deal with. Please remember you are NOT the only player in Fantage. Additionally, when you trade, rather than spending tens of thousands of Gold (which you hopefully bought at an exorbitant price from Fantage 😉 ) on items, Fantage is unable to take much tax, which over time corrupts the economy of Gold leading to oversaturation (too much gold) in accounts.
Do not share or ask for passwords: Fantage doesn’t want people to get “hacked” (the correct term is “hijacked”) and their items sold or destroyed because it makes people sad, and it leaves Fantage with too many emails and users to deal with. It shouldn’t need to be said, but even if you only share your password with close friends, Fantage is an online game where you don’t know who is really on the other side of the screen, and whether they will still be your friend next week.
Do not sell trade or buy outside MyMall: This is referring to everyone buying and selling on PayPal, and trading items for iTunes, and KarmaKoin etc.
Starting with PayPal, anyone can get scammed, whether you buy or sell, go first or last. Being scammed through PayPal is a serious issue, particularly because it’s real money, rather than virtual currency, and because it generally involves children, who can be vulnerable to losing large sums of money. Fantage CANNOT help you if something goes wrong with PayPal. Fantage cannot refund your PayPal money, it’s hard to prove, and easy to fake that a PayPal agreement and transaction has taken place. Trading for cards is similar, in that you can easily be scammed, more easily, by the fact that you can be given a code that doesn’t work, or someone can lie to you about a code working. Again, Fantage cannot verify these events taking place, and can’t take any action in banning, or trading an item. Even if you record the transaction and provide screenies, once a Paypal, ITunes, or other outside activity has occurred it is NO longer a Fantage issue and having your entire family call and yell at Fantage is pointless as they not responsible for your loss.
The final reason for this is as I said before. “When you trade, rather than spending tens of thousands of Gold (which you hopefully bought at an exorbitant price from Fantage 😉 ) on items, Fantage is unable to take much tax, which over time corrupts the economy of Gold leading to oversaturation (too much gold) in accounts.”
Fantage does not honor any trades or illegal sales of our virtual property: I’ll just reword this one. “Fantage will not help you if you trade, or make “frowned upon” sales/trades of money/non-fantage-items for items that technically Fantage owns. Yes Fantage technically owns all your inventory, and there’s nothing you can do about that.
Cheating Methods: Now I’m not too sure about this myself, but from what I gather, they’re saying if you scam someone, manipulate another account by asking for email changes or password changes, exploit a glitch to earn large sums of gold or items, or trade via PayPal etc, the will temporarily or permanently ban you, and remove any items involved (scammed/hacked) from all accounts.
Note: I know a lot of you think Fantage are greedy, and why would you buy Gold when you can get things cheaper through PayPal, but as some people may not have considered, the staff and servers that make Fantage run are expensive. So if everyone stops buying Gold and Membership, and just tries to trade and sell things for money, you might not get to play Fantage anymore. Which would be ashame considering that you just spent $100 PayPal on a Movie Star Hair you’ll never get to wear because Fantage closes. Maybe I’m just being dramatic, but it’s definitely something to think about.
***** Also if you call or email them to admit you have done any of the above, you have now opened yourself up to being banned.
