    Default Buying REX ingame

    Okay,

    Just spoke with the live chat and this whole mechanic just doesn't make sense.
    I bought 3 REX, And then got locked when i tried to buy 2 more.

    When i spoke with the Person on the chat they told me that there is a cycle on how much REX one can buy. Due to safety issues etc (getting hacked or w/e) But on the other hand, You can buy unlimited credits.

    This makes no sense, I can't buy more then 3 REX, But if i wanted to i could buy more then 300 euro's worth of credits, If someone harmfull intented to steal from you they could just buy a crapload of credits and gift items to theirselves..

    Someone able to explain these weird mechanics that make no sense?

    Had the same issue, had to contact customer service to unlock my account, I was unable to make any purchases of any kind. I did not know they were locking our accounts after purchases.

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.

    These are both security measures to protect the integrity of your account. We limit the amount you are able to buy in a short amount of time to make sure this is not someone else purchasing on your account. This way they are not allowed to spend all of your money and will get stopped. It is to prevent fraud on your account.

    Yes, but that's what i said that doesn't make sense. If someone was to pledge fraud on my account they could also just buy 300-1000 euro's worth of credits and gift them selves items. So this lock isn't really that helpfull

    My guess would be that account hackers usually try to steal money rather then give it to Trion, i.e. buying REX with your credit card and moving them off your account, something they cant do with normal credits.

    Default I think Trion is going to close

    The management's IQ of this company should not more than 50.
    F2P about 5 months.
    They know there are criminals using stolen CC or PP account at the store
    They do not want to add more validation to prevent this problem from occurring, but prohibits the real players spent more money in the game.
    What a great idea ......
