    So i've done a little research and noticed yall are against account transfer. I was wondering why this is because I was wanting to play annihilation again but then realized I wouldnt have any of my progress and at that point I just lost interest. This is my brothers account( I was like 12 or 13 didn't have my own account) and would like to transfer if at all possible

    Well, what exactly do you want to transfer? Do you want to transfer everything from your account to another account? If so, the only difference would be your IGN, which is easily changeable if you have full access to the account.

    We don't allow this for a few reasons:
    1. If a hacker gets a hold of an account, it would be very easy for them to transfer everything to themselves and leave the account untouched before anything could be done about it.
    2. Our current underlying system doesn't support it (we're working on fixing this)
    Sorry about that! Hope you find an alternate solution.

    Out of question would a total transfer be possible in the future because I do not have total access to the email associated with my account itself so I cannot change my skin but I have learned to live with this but I would love to know if there is any chance of this being changed in the future and of it being possible to transfer all the data to a new Minecraft account including any premium subscriptions.

    Just so we're on the same page, Minecraft uses UUID's instead of IGN as reference.

    What if you simultaneously bought a new minecraft account under a new name and email address and provided a proof of purchase. This would directly contrast a hackers best interest. Obviously this doesn't rule out malicious intentions, but it would bar misuse somewhat.

    It might be possible in the far future — but this is certainly not a concern or priority now. Think about it — would the players want us to be coding updates and fixes to our games... or this?

    True but I still think that this issue impacts many people and it should be addressed especially because some people especially those who are premium subscribers expect a level of support that understandably needs a bit of work on shotbow a behalf but I do understand the reason for the shortages.

    Now I know you're no coder but there are several different programming languages. Whose to say that someone might know the one needed for this problem, but not for say, game development? Perhaps it would require collaboration between different developers with different known languages. We're probably not ones to say.

    I suspect this is a rhetorical question, since it'd probably reveal something about how Shotbow's servers are set up.
    I think the conversation has officially run its course, since its not doing anything but for making conversation itself.

    To put it simply. I want to play annihilation. Not enough to completely restart my progression. I would play your server if I could do the account transfer. This is my brothers account which I would like to move my progress off of. Classes and rank are really the only things that matter. But doesn't matter anymore. I doubt it will come to fruition.

    I code, just not for Shotbow :stuck_out_tongue:

    The backend structure requires database knowledge, which most Shotbow devs have. Even if the database structure were to be altered, all the games would need to adjust to this new structure, as well as most of Shotbow's core code. That requires Java developers which are currently developing games and other in-game code.

    Why can't you play on your brother's account?

    Maybe he just wants to play on his own account I see the validity in that desire I mean he can but that’s not really ideal for him and I would say as someone who pays a premium for a subscription they should expect ease of support revolving this sort of issue. I think that is his issue but I will not speak for him on that. It just would be a very helpful and useful feature to be able to get your account transferred in case of emergency or account loss.
