Is it allowed for me to trade for virtual items?

Post by cal483647 » Sat Nov 30, 2013 10:03 pm

Hi, I just got into team fortress two recently and was wondering if it is ok to trade warhammer/mtg cards for some virtual items in the game that people may have. I just wanted confirmation/permission before proceeding to post a thread. Thank you for your help and have a great day!

No sorry
Rule #12: Digital paraphernalia (accounts, items, cards, etc) Are Not Acceptable Trade Goods.
Do not post ads selling or soliciting MMORPG accounts, items, or currency. No Everquest, no Diablo 2, no Star Wars Galaxies, no World of Warcraft, or anything else in the multi-player online roleplaying game genre. Do not think you are being clever by selling a CD and sticking a piece of paper with your account information in the package with it. That still counts as a violation and you will be banned if we find out about it.Furthermore, no online collectible card game items/accounts/currencies. If you've got a super-awesome card on Magic Online, DO NOT come here to trade it.

If you have a WoW trading card that can affect the online WoW game, contact an Administrator BEFORE you post it for trade.

If you don't have your Location listed in your User Control Panel, why not take a second and update it? It will let your trading partners know where you are from the beginning.

Have you read the site rules? viewtopic.php?f=44&t=45470 If not do so.

What were you hoping to get rid of? I don't need details, just a general idea.

I need to know "Online magic cards, WoW account, Steam games," etc.
I DON'T need to know, "WXYZ online magic cards" or "Level XX Dark Elf Rogue on LMOP server," etc.

Thanks.

Yes you can, it's not prohibited by law. You must ensure that the game rules allow it. First of all, you need to find an honest buyer for exapmle here [link removed by MM] you can find good site.

Please, do not necromance a 7 year old thread to give bad information.

You canNOT trade virtual items here. What this thread is about is what WE allow.
Please familiarize yourself with the rules, as I've also had to remove the link you posted.
