    Hi guys!

    I need another account to hold a house, if I create a new account right now?

    Will the new account be able to take a house?

    I know you need to be a certain age in days to place a house, but I'm not sure about taking one in trade.

    They said they were removing the 15 day requirement from non trial accounts. DiD they go through with it? That would be your answer if they haven't then you wouldn't be able to. But I think they did check the patch notes from when they restricted the trial accounts was only a few publishes ago.

    If you purchase a new account or reactivate an existing account there is a 7 day timer to accept or place a house.

    Why is that exactly?

    I can understand trail accounts not being able to place, but paying customers.

    But anyway. Thank you for your response.

    I understand the purchasing a new account, because those come with 30 days of free game time...

    If I'm reactivating an account, you've gotten my $12.99 for the month... why would there be a 7 day timer on reactivating an existing account?

    If you phone EA customer support they will lift the restrictions for paying accounts within a few minutes.

    Sorry Sir... but that is not the truth :)
    When I reactivated my account I was able to place a house straight away.
    I ran arround for an hour and placed a Tower on the Artic Island.

    Then after 2 days or so I found a better spot in Malas and had no trouble demolishing and replacing.

    I cant say for new accounts thou :)

    (Btw.. I did this on 2 accounts)

    Uh Chrissay is a female and I don't think she was being deceitful on purpose. She may be misinformed or even unaware change was made. It doesn't make her a liar.

    You can create a new account and call customer service to have the trial account restrictions taken off but your character still has to be so many days old to place/receive a house.

    I started a second trail account and was going to re-instate my 1st acct and refer my trial acct as a buddy acct to get the 1 month free play for it. :pint:
