So, I had been browsing around on forum posts around Christmas, and there was a certain post that said that if you sent a message to Zenimax Support you could send crowns or send a crown store item (that charges your current crowns) to a friend. It would take several days to get through, but eventually the friend would get the gift.
That got me thinking, after you buy the game, making accounts is free. So, basically, an exploiter could make several accounts and send all of the crowns to their "main" account. That's about ~$5 saved for the every 1 or 2 minutes creating a fake email and account!
I personally haven't tried this, because 1. I don't want to ruin the game and 2. There might be a chance to get banned. However, many exploiters can use this system to feed crowns without buying!
If this is actually a problem, Zenimax, fix this!
One suggestion would be to make the "gift" system unavailable until you make an in-game crown purchase. That way exploiters can't just swing out free crowns without paying any price. A second suggestion would be to make the starter 500 crowns "ungiftable": These 500 starter crowns may only be used on your account.
I hope this got to Zenimax before people exploited it. Thanks!
P.S. If this is actually not a problem, well, please don't insult me too much, I'm rather new to this game.
