Nobody will ever trade this, or maybe you don't play classic servers anymore?

You don't know that no body will ever trade it, what if someone's quitting and wants to give it to a trial? Or what if someone wants to swap it to they're trial.

I mean in Graal Shop/Inventory/Trade.
In the little graal start menu it's considered "Trade" but yeah it's basically a transfer.

Probably won't ever happen. Graal Online doesn't really "support" lifetime classic anymore, we should be happy that we can actually keep it.

This is exactly why. How will they make profit if people can just give their lifetime subscriptions away?

I agree with transferring it to my other accounts, but I'm not stressed with it. I do, however, hate the excuse they give -- "we can't transfer it because it doesn't exist as a subscription anymore". I find it hard to believe that account data is limited to what subscriptions exist.

That's right! Why should a company let their players made profit by selling their lifetime account? Why should they let their players give it away for free? The benefit of lifetime classic was not made to bequeath it.

I guess they would like the players to do so, because they'd have to buy classic subscriptions again, which will never happen.

I guess you wanted to say "Why would the players give it away for free"

=P

Sucks for the people that have to pay yearly for this game.

I'm still waiting for the figures to come in of the number of people who subscribe more than 1 year on an account. Probably low.

Lifetime Classic was a big mistake. You're lucky to keep it. Why would you think you can transfer that?

I think this is a really stupid idea. It's not like there would be many players out there who would trade it. It's lifetime, you can always come back. Classic players are permitted to keep it because it was promised to them. And it was around before subscriptions could be traded.

I usually subscribe in advance because although I don't play graal all that much sometimes I just get a craving for it, I've got lifetime classic but like 48-50 dollars a year isn't that much. Stupidish idea but they should have it were if a certain amount of accounts are bought in a month, they will have one week were lifetime classic is sold.

I disagree I personally wouldn't pay for any of the content on graal. The money doesn't even go to most of the developers... they pay to work, and now they pay a yearly fee to work for a probably smaller playerbase.
