some people spend alot of money on their account. what happens if a player dies (in real life) and want's to pass on his account  to his kid who is also a gamer? has WG ever considered this posibility?

Account sharing is not forbidden, so your question is now answered.

 

Just remember to add your password on your will before you die...

I wonder could you also rent your account, as the ownership is still on the original owner :coin:

We all came together here to talk about the estate of the shortly deceised Mr. Bob Bobbington, whom I'll from now on refer to as... just a second... let me read this... *cough* "Xx_Guderian7ank5niper1979_xX".

Ok... sooo... Mr. Bobbington was a very modest man, he invested most of what he had and also most of his time into a computergame called "World of Tanks". His son, Mr. Rommel Bobbington, will inherit his account details.

The next point... - oh, nope. That was it.

Ah... no. One more thing. His wife, Jesselyne Bobbington will receive... eh... a t-shirt and a mug.

Well... better than nothing... I guess. Thanks for coming.

I am sure inheriting a account is legal, as it is neither sold or shared or traded in any other matter.

Inheritence laws are there afterall to regulate ownership after the death of a person.

I haven't been following this topic more closely but I think there was a case like this about a Facebook account of a daughter who died...

If it was, the #1 spot on most played battles would be banned years ago. As he is online 24/7 playing, and has been for the past few years.

This is absolute gold! :D

 

In all seriousness, I imagine something like this would be handled on a case by case basis by our Customer Support team, because they'd require certain documents, so it depends.

This will be allowed because WG allow account sharing anyway.

Every time you point out obvious account sales/shares (with conclusive evidence in performance differences between the original owner and the new one) they require so much evidence it's unreal or otherwise they won't act. They require you to provide them with actual conversations about the account sale, as if you could ever get your hands on them.

And by performance difference I mean an account that used to be 60%+ Winratio and 2500+wn8 average suddenly consistently pulling barely 44% and sub 1000wn8 for a month or so. It's obvious that this account was sold or that the owner suffered from serious brain damage somehow which is far more unlikely. It's clear to anyone with a brain this account was sold on or otherwise changed hands.

 

In other words they condone account sharing.

 

So I don't think you need to worry about it much.
