[NEW + UPDATE] Anti-Fraud System (Wed, July 31st)

Postby Viking Sarah » Tue Jul 16, 2019 2:13 pm

Hey YoFans,

As of this morning's update, I am happy to report that a few adjustments and bug fixes have been made that will hopefully help out some of our long term players who have experienced some issues with trading after the system was implemented. If you continue to experience any additional issues, please definitely reach out to us!
__________________________________________

Hey YoFans!

Today our team released a new update that aims to put an end to some of the fraud and scams we all see on a regular basis in YoWorld.

Our team has been researching this data for a while now, and we've discovered that it was very easy for new account holders to take advantage of a system that was meant to be welcoming to new players.

  • A lot of innocent players unknowingly were taken advantage of by these "new" accounts via trades
  • Fraudulent purchases were made, and YoCash and YoCoins were exchanged, all from new accounts
  • An increase in events, login rewards, and contests has seen an influx in newly created alternate accounts. These alt accounts were being used to take advantage of free items and currency in YoWorld

With today's updates, our team has made it more difficult for these accounts to introduce fraudulent items and currency into YoWorld. Ultimately, this helps to keep your account safe and YoWorld's economy strong. The new Anti-Fraud system places small restrictions on accounts that have not yet met minimum account requirements.

These minimum account requirements are easily met by new players who progress naturally in their YoWorld adventures. Once players have met the requirements, they will be notified via a pop-up in YoWorld alerting them to the news that they have unlocked trading.

If you try to trade with a player who does not meet the minimum account requirements, you will not be able to trade with them. However, you can still gift them!

Fun fact! A lot of today's online games already have a similar Anti-Fraud system in place to help prevent these types of fraudulent new accounts from compromising their game and player base.

Ultimately, this system has been put in place to ensure that honest YoFans like yourself are not stuck paying for the deeds of bad ones. As always, please leave your feedback and questions below! :heart:

I'm sorry I have to disagree with this system. I do not think you should have to be level 50 in order to be granted trading privileges. I think Level 25 would have been sufficient. But level 50? No. :grr

I have friends who are 08 and 09 players who do not care for decorating rooms/homes and who rarely purchase in-store items. Because of this, their Yo-World levels are under 50. They play this game solely to buy-and-sell and for in-game interactions with others. Is it fair to restrict the aspect of the game that they love and demand that they do certain things in order to level up so that they can continue doing what they love in the game?

this is one of the stupidest things you could do. as a newer player i make my coins through sales and donations from friends and other players. how do you expect to get new people to play yoville if they can not have sales etc in game to make coins to be happy in the game.the players that are doing this are ones who are changing names to other players names and doing that. so why not just set up a feature that eliminates players from useing a name already used in game.

Simple answer - this is not thought out and it's going to hurt Yoworld with bringing in new players.

I would rather them put a limit on how many times someone can change their name in a day, week, month.

I agree. I don't really care about changing my name so it won't bother me at all.

I don't think it's fair to blame it on their 'wallets', this is a business so of course they care about their income.
Personally, I understand the reason why they're implementing this feature but its definitely not the best. In fact, I am happy they still care about the game by adding new stuff. even though its not the best, I really appreciate their efforts.

I still gotta disagree with BVG on this one. There’s OG players innocent ones that’s played that’s still below level 50. There’s new innocent players that I’m sure still joins. I don’t get why you guys honestly just pure out punish everyone else.

Honestly not even shocked anymore. Every update gets worse imo.. with the amount of players who are leaving daily this could likely drive more to leave.. and as for new players, having to level up to 50 just to be able to buy things from people? Idk seems ridiculous
