Hello all,

In order to protect your cards and clintz, if your account is used by someone else without your consent because of a phishing or any other hacking technique, we implement today a new protection system.

How does this system work and what will it change during a sale or a secured trade?

When the transaction has more or less the same value as in the Market (99% of the cases), it doesn’t change anything.
But if the transaction value is different (example: DJ Korr for 50 clintz) then, the new system sends a confirmation email to the «disadvantaged» player.

An email will be sent to the email address linked to your account.

If your account is not confirmed, you will have to confirm it to be able to make the trade or the sale.


When it’s done, your preference page much show this:

In the email you will receive, a link will send you on a page where you’ll be able to accept or refuse the transaction.

Once the transaction is validated, the trade or the sale can continue, you will have to complete it again yourself.

Good to know: after agreeing to be «disadvantaged» during a transaction with a player, you won’t need to confirm transactions with this same player during one month.

This is nice smiley

Could you also add a " How much this is all worth/ Current worth" under the bit where it says "add clintz" for both players?

This would be great help so when players trade loads of different cards it tell the total amount of clintz each side is proposing.

Reply to me if you don't understand what im saying. smiley

If they allowed you to turn it off it would defeat the object of the system as the hacker could just turn it off lol.

I guess it has its advantages and disadvantages. I could see how this is annoying for you though smiley

Look at it this way, hopefully through this, we get less reports of thefts. If it benefits the public, I will support it. smiley

Very very annoying

IT'd be better if they just sent it to our PM's...having to check my actual email account is tedious

Hello,

Thank you for your feedback everybody. smiley We decided to switch off the protection system to rework it, as it not as practical as we expected it to be. Several improvements will be made, and we did not forget about loans and gifts. smiley
