This is another kick in the stomach to the faithful player base. I dont need RF4 to protect me from cheaters or scammers. Especially, when all it does is punish me and others for following the rules. I really wish RF4 would rethink this decision. Its completely and totally unnecessary.
Lets look at this for what it appears to be:
1- If i buy good rods, reels, and accessories with GOLD, i can send it.
2- If i buy good rods, reels, and accessories with my hard earned silver, I cant.
Hmm, this decision appears to be about Money and not protection. Just my thoughts from a high lvl player.
