Guild Wars

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From GuildWiki

A game account is required to play Guild Wars. To own an account you must agree to the EULA on account creation. Depending upon your location, you can either purchase a permanent license of the game, or you can choose to pay-to-play on a subscription/time card basis. English accounts require a "key" code (25 units in length) to create an account. Other versions require an NCSoft account on the localised version's official website. Accounts cannot be merged. To register for an account, you must provide your e-mail address, your mailing address, and your full name.

Contents

Chapter Access

Each game chapter is a separate stand alone Guild Wars product. Each account requires a separate game key for each chapter you wish to play on that account. Account keys can only be used once, and accounts cannot be merged together after the keys have been added to accounts. To add a key to your current account go to the character selection screen and then click edit account > Manage access keys > Next > (Enter the 25 digit key)

The first chapter for an account grants four character slots. Every additional chapter added to an account grants two additional character slots. You can buy additional character slots at a fixed rate per slot in the Guild Wars In-Game Store. All character slots on an account have access to every chapter registered with that account. Character names cannot be changed after character creation. Characters cannot be transferred from one account to another.

Accounts and Game Data

All characters belonging to an account are members of the same guild. Fame and skill unlocking is account-based and cannot be reset once the player has gained or unlocked it. Fame and unlocked skills cannot be transferred among accounts.

Game misbehavior and punishment

Besides the EULA you must also agree to the Rules of Conduct when playing Guild Wars. Failure to follow these rules may lead to temporary or permanent punishment of the account.

Game Purchase Availability

Game accounts are available to the following areas:

  • America / Australia / Oceania / Europe (including some Middle East countries)
  • Japan
  • Korea
  • Taiwan / Hong Kong

Differences between each Guild Wars Localization:

Each game localization has its own home district. You cannot move into the home districts of other localizations. If you wish to meet someone from a different localization of Guild Wars you must meet in the international districts.

Any of the game interface languages can be used by any of the localised versions. Your purchase does not affect this.

America, Europe, Australia/Oceania Version Differences

The America, Europe, Australia/Oceania localizations have a choice to switch between the America and Europe home districts 5 times per account. These switches are strictly limited so once they are used up the account can no longer be changed. It is unlikely at this time that Australia/Oceania will gain their own home district though this could change at some point in the future.

The American and European home districts also disallow typing in Eastern languages characters. This block does not affect private messaging, guild chat, international districts, and all PvP modes.

Character names created within the America, Europe, and Australia/Oceania Version must be at least 3 letters long, only use English letters, consist of a minimum of 2 words, and cannot exceed the 19 letter maximum.

English versions do not have time card payment options. You can only purchase a permanent licence for each chapter.

Korea Version Differences

The Korean version requires that you have a Korean ID, you cannot create a Korean account without one. You must create an NC.Soft account first on the Korean guild wars website.

The Korean home districts allow typing in Eastern languages characters as well as English.

Character created within the Korean localisation must be at least 3 letters long, can use any letter from English and Eastern languages (excluding Japanese), can consist of only one word, and cannot exceed the 19 letter maximum. Names can also include numbers.

The Korean version has time card payment options as well as a one time purchase option for each chapter of Guild wars. It also enables users to buy time cards which allow playing Guild wars for a limited time period. This time payment option is due to the LAN cafés that are very common in Korea.

Japan Version Differences

The Japanese version requires that you create a PlayNC account first on the Japanese Guild wars website. Instead of using an e-mail address to log into the game, players use their PlayNC login name followed by "@NCJapan" to log in.

For character name restriction differences, see Roleplaying character creation#Japan

The Japan version offer the following payment options:

  1. 30-day - subscription-styled payment. The first three days after opening a new account is free.
  2. pay once for unlimited play, one campaign - this is the same offering as North America version.

Taiwan Version Differences

The Taiwanese version requires that you create an NCTaiwan account first on the Taiwan Guild Wars website. Instead of using an e-mail address to log into the game, players use their NCTaiwan login name followed by "@NCTaiwan" to log in.

For character name restriction differences, see Roleplaying character creation#Taiwan

The Taiwanese version offers the following payment options:

  • 7-day pack, all campaigns - for opening a new account only
  • monthly card, all campaigns - subscription-styled payment
  • pay once for unlimited play, one campaign - this is the same offering as North America version, except that Campaign 1,2, and 3 are bundled together.

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

"Player" redirects here. For other uses, see Player (disambiguation).

An Account is the means by which a player is identified in RuneScape. It holds all the information on the player's in-game activities, including their skills and achievements, all the items they possess, and the quests they have done. It also makes the player accountable for anything they have said via the game's chat interface, specifically including any breaches of the Rules of RuneScape.

A player's account is similar to, but separate from, his or her character. The character is represented by an avatar that exists in-game. Jagex has stated that accounts and characters are generally kept separate, meaning that black marks received on an account (such as in the RuneScape Forums) do not reflect on a player's character (with the exception of a ban or mute).

A player must create an account in order to play the game, requiring a username and a password. The account starts out as free-to-play by default, but the player can choose to pay a monthly fee to gain extra pay-to-play content and functionality.

A player can create more than one account, and can interchange between playing them with no limits. However, they may not be logged into more than one of their accounts at the same time[1], and may not allow anyone else to use any of their accounts at any time[2]. Jagex prohibits the sale of accounts. Jagex keeps a strict surveillance on players attempting to sell accounts, and an offender is liable to incur severe penalties, such as being banned, if they should attempt to either buy or sell an account.

Players may receive messages from Jagex via their Message Centre when they log into the game. This is the only means by which Jagex contacts players individually - they never use email[3]. Players also need to log into their account to use certain functions on the RuneScape website, including posting on the RuneScape Forums, (for those that have not attained 1million overall experience) vote in official polls, using QuestHelp, and accessing the player moderator centre (if the player has player moderator status).

Tibia

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From TibiaWiki

To play Tibia, you need to register an account on the Tibia website.
Through your account, you create characters to play on the tibian worlds with. These characters can

  • follow four different vocations
  • be either male or female

and

all according to your tastes.

You handle your account through the account interface. There you can manage your characters and give out some personal details, such as

  • your name
  • Your geographical location
  • your ICQ-number (if you have one and want it know to all and sundry)
  • any messages you want to be viewed (free text area)

The account interface is also the place where you change your email adress and
buy your premium membership. It's also where your criminal record is kept and
where you apply to become a tutor. (only possible with a personalised premium account)

Some parts of the account are visable to the general public on a character (not account) basis.

Those are:

Character Information

  • Name (of the specific character displayed)
  • Sex
  • Vocation (whether you're promoted or not and what vocation you follow)
  • Level
  • World
  • Residence (which town you have chosen as your hometown)
  • Last login (for the specific character, not the account)
  • Account Status (Free or Premium Account)

Account Information

  • Real name (you are of course able to lie if you want to, but only as long as you haven't personalised your account)
  • Location (see above)
  • Creation date (the date the account, not the individual character, was created)

Character Information

The name of the different characters that you have created.
Note that you can hide characters from this list if you want to in the account manager.
