Further to the previous update regarding trading, we have now implemented new rules regarding both giveaways and tournament prizes.
Due to the risk that it imposes on both players in terms of getting their accounts banned due to fraudulent coin activity, we can no longer allow user funded prizes from tournaments or individual giveaways of coins/players.
You may have noticed that we are currently trialling a system that involves EA directly providing the prize pools for a number of tournaments hosted by community writers. Providing this proves to be successful, we will look to expand this to other trusted hosts as appropriate.
As always, any feedback on the rules is welcomed in the Forum Feedback section, and the updated rules can be found here.
