We do understand that not everyone is able to donate, and it is a shame that we have to withhold such features because of a small minority of cheaters.

So, if you're going to blame anyone, blame the cheaters!

What I dont understand about this is that people only have to donate once on any server to be able to trade on a different server.

So say I play E1 seriously and I donate. Then somone asks me to join E2 and give them resources. Well I could join E2 and give them resources for free. I just dont think this will solve this problem, especially after paypal is added and more people donate.

I don't believe this is open for discussion but I want to shead my input on it anyways.

It should be possible, if you assign a uid for everyone, to track who is giving what to who over a period of n transfers. You could do a ip check aginst all these people to insure noone is farming. This would work for everyone with static ips. You could also tax any trades 20% so that trying to get around these checks by pushing money around a lot would result in very little getting past. Futher more you could have 'trade slots' baisclly a new upgrade would allow you to accept and trade more (perhaps have it take level 3 untill you can trade) and each place would only have say 5 transfers (in or out) a week, and you can only take 1 transfer from a given nation a week. each transfer could also be limited to say 2k total resources thus in a week you can only get a total of +10k.

This would keep you open to farming but what is to keep a group of people who have dontated from framing for a friend who plays a diffren server? Or farming for old friends on anohter server?
