Just out of curiosity: two of my fleet mates (who are F2P without the EC-Cap increase) complained that he couldn't contribute to the fleet bank account anymore. Any amount they tried to put into the fleet account just disappeared without a warning.

After trying around a bit, it seems that F2Ps without the EC cap increase can only contribute as long as the amount in the fleet bank is below 10 million. Any money which gets contributed by them when the account is above 10 million simply gets eaten without so much as a warning. Both of them are saying that they were able to contribute normally in the past.

Has this been a recent change? If yes, would it be too hard to include a warning pop-up that will warn them that they will lose that money or - at least - include that information somewhere ingame?

You're sure it's not the fleet permissions? I mean it sounds a likely bug (I can totally imagine this happening!) but it could be something much more simple


EDIT: Oh, and moved to the bugs report section so the exterminator can come and get it.

It shouldn't be the permissions. The people in question pretty much have the same rights as the fleet leader.

When the Balance is 0, they can contribute up until 10.000.000. If they contribute 10.000.100 the 100 EC above the 10 mil limit is lost. When the balance is 46.456.000 for example any contribution is lost without a warning.

They are both claiming that they were able to contribute past that limit in the past.

That is correct, because Unless they have purchased the Energy Cap increase they are ONLY supposed to have 10 million. Getting above 10 million most likely occured because they went gold for one month and increase above the cap. when they reverted back to Silver the energy Cap increase Disappears unless it was Purchased in the "Z" Store. The Ability to Donate,Purchase and put things on the Exchange WAS recently Capped to 10 mil IF you were Silver in a Recent Patch. This was Established So Silver players could not put a D'kora on Exchange for 200 mil for example, It would sell and they only would get 10 mil. NOW they can only list up to there Energy Credit Cap, and Function within the Cap. If they wish to Fix this, they must either go BACK to being Gold, OR spend the Zen and get the Extremely Cheap Energy Credit Increase. Until then, they are S.O.L. for the 10 mil overage.

They are well below that cap, it's just the fleet bank that is not. If they want to contribute any kind of amount of EC's to the fleet bank, while the fleet banks balance is above 10 million, their contribution is lost.

For example:

Fleet Bank balance: 35.000.000 EC -> Silver Player donates 25.000 EC -> 25.000 EC are removed from Silver player but do not get added to the fleet bank balance. -> 25.000 EC are lost.

Fleet Bank balance: 9.500.000 EC -> Silver Player donates 1.000.000 EC -> 1.000.000 are removed from Silver Player -> 500.000 EC arrive in the fleet bank, 500.000 EC are lost.

It basically means that fleet bank accounts have to be kept below 10 million, so that Silver players can contribute ECs to the bank? Just seems wrong, especially there is no warning to be found in regards to that...
