Our Chief Strategist, @ManBearPig, has this to say about paid carries and services. This is an excerpt of a larger article he's publishing on our official blog soon about why we built FTW.in.
When compelled to compete in a social space, things can get distorted. People using our website started to offer paid carries and account recoveries (which requires giving your password to an online stranger so they can actually play your character). Ads for paid services masquerading as LFG posts started to clog up our pages. In fact, in our recent survey of 500 gamers, 20% said advertising paid carries was their No.1 pain point when using an LFG site.
By the way, our point of view on paid carries is that the practice is a cancer to any multiplayer game - ruining experiences for other players and undermining gamer communities. We are 100% against offering services for money and will permanently ban anyone we see doing this on FTW.in
