We will be able to buy crown store items for others?

Just got an e-mail saying they are (for a short time) going to let us buy crown store items for others. I could use this to buy mounts and outfits for my wife and son who do not play as much as I do. I can't really think of any major way this can be abused, as nothing in the store is P2W. Your thoughts?

    The sender field of an email is trivially easy to fake. Without inspecting the headers to see if it's signed and/or if it originated from an authorized server, you can't really know.

    True, and I wouldn't do this unless it was announced officially. I'm just curious, as it seems like a good crown drain. If it's fake, then someone hacked all the e-mail addresses.

    Thank you for responding. They must have looked at my crown balance and thought "I bet he would spend those on family/friends!"

    Long time subscirbers with tons of crowns that they never use "gifting" crown items, getting gifts of "gold" in return.

    People who have friends who quit contacting having them revive accounts to essentially shift crown balance, by way of items.

    Suppose I could use my sub account to buy DLCs for my non sub account.

    I don't personally think any thing I listed is bad, wrong, or abusive... I just think those are reasons ZOS hasn't let this happen before. Perhaps if it's true they are doing this, they are hoping people relinquish some of their crowns before the housing next year...

    -edditing to add- I realize subscirbers isn't a word, but I haven't had my coffee yet.
    -second edit- gift should be in quotes not gold... getting my coffee now

    So you guys are going down the CS:GO route of monetization? That's unfortunate IMHO, though likely lucrative at least over the short term.

    I would only suggest never selling crowns for a discounted price ever again. You will have players buying tons of crowns (they already do when there is a crown sale), waiting for the sale to end, and then trying to make a profit selling store items for less than the crown store price yet more than what they paid for their crowns.

    Is it just the email about it that is being sent to a small number of people, or will the ability to gift the crown items only be available to those that got it?

    this will effectively allow you to convert CASH to GOLD...

    Exactly. The (current) inability to do this was one of the only two reasons I got this game to begin with (the other is that it's an Elder Scrolls game).

    It can already be done. WTS (insert exotic motif) armor. Your Silk and 5K with my style mat. You then use a mimic stone. This is not getting out of hand, because even rare style stones arent that expensive, and this would take a fair amount of work, but its already in the game.

    Now expand that, want to sell a fancy mount for 50,000 gold. You just paid cash for gold. Period, end of story.
