    and so ends the duping of 1m gold checks in the billions!!! and simple laundring/washing via vendors...untraceable duping as finished!!! if they dupe anything now im gussing ot can be traced back easier....hence the duping of the 1m checks [above]

    Congrats Devs!!!! best move the devs have made for years..well done and thanks for listenening and reacting to the player base...it wont make a huge difference becvause of the billions already duped in the system ....but a difference it will make!!!

    Did learn one new thing last night with regards to the new banking. The gold that you transfer into the transfer fund is only accessible by the character that put the gold into the transfer. Hence you can't put gold into the fund with one chareceter and then transfer another char and access that gold.

    ok so what is the point of the server transfer? if only that toon can access the gold anyway whats the point of putting it into a transfer account? why doesnt it all just transfer when you transfer that toon?

    If it all transferred, then all your characters on the original shard would be broke. Your balance is for all characters on a given shard now, not per toon.

    Realistically... Unless the ability to dupe gold was directly related to having the gold in the bank to dupe it... This change will make no difference. Gold checks NOT in the bank did not convert, so they still exist. All someone had to do was create how ever many checks they wanted to dupe and stick them in a house. Potentially they could dupe the checks and deposit the duped ones into the bank and viola... no duped checks exist.

    At least no NEW checks will be able to be created, so they only risk is the dupers who thought of it in advance.

    sadly this may be true....thats if NEW checks can be created/duped NOW...maybe the devs need to look into this ..lets be honest is by far the sole issue we have gone away form physical 1m checks.... the devs deleted trillions....and god noes how many got away with it

    Will the number of checks in circulation has dropped a great deal I'm sure. I imagine it will be easier for them to track shenanigans in the future. Since they went to all this work I think they'll be watching the situation closely.
