I have been buying game time from my bnet account balance for months now since I had maxed it out and wanted to bring the balance down. Does that count towards real money purchases or not. Someone claimed they made a ticket and it was confirmed using the bnet balance in that way counts as a real money purchase so we should be able to buy tokens. Before I make another ticket I am wondering if anyone else can confirm this is the way it works.
The blue post seem to imply it is only constantly buying tokens that is the issue.
It’s a great question, and one that they might not want players to know.
Aqure, I’m not sure we can give you a definitive answer one way or the other. I would encourage you to open that ticket and ask. Don’t just take the word of someone saying “well, they said this”. Hopefully, they can provide you guidance.
My first instinct is that Battle.net Balance won’t count. It doesn’t seem to solve the overarching issue, as the botters/hackers can simply purchase the WoW token and add one to the balance. But if they can separate it like Mirasol suggests, then maybe it would be allowed.
But again, I have no knowledge if this is correct or not. It just seems logical this way. Hopefully, there can be some official clarification.
I don’t think they would bother with tracking how the balance was obtained - plus I don’t think you can just buy a token now and put it on bnet for one month game time. I always have a problem finding the game time but I have been having to pay for 2 months at a time for awhile now.
If no blue pops in I guess wait and see, unlikely to get a ticket answered before I can try for myself tomorrow now anyway.
In an automated system it will not be hard to track those that used cash to purchase game time after tomorrow, and those who only used gold to buy game time, even if using balance after a token conversion.
I was going to say we shall know tomorrow but I remember now I probably will be able to buy tokens anyway because I paid for one month on a prepaid credit card to prove it can be done on this forum so that one payment should have been enough to credit me for the 30 days of real money.
So, players can just convert tokens to Bnet Balance, buy 60 days of game time, and it counts? Ok then…
Although, from the char select screen on an inactive account, it only lets you use your gold to buy a game token right? Not a token that can be converted to Balance? So someone would need active game time before going the token to balance route.
