Accounts will be deleted?

Post by Queen Jadis » 06 Sep 2013 16:52

Hi all,

I have noticed that a number of players who use free Trackmania accounts have recently received the following email from Nadeo:
Hello (username),

Nadeo would like to reduce the number of free accounts for maintenance reasons.

Please decide to keep your account, by clicking here
(link)

or simply prefer it to be deleted
(link)

Thank you for your attention,
Nadeo

Does this mean that the number of free accounts has reached a critical point? And what happens to players who ignore this message?

Cheers,
Jadis

I got this e mail too. I don't think the number of free accounts has reached a "critical point", maybe they just want to delete all non active players and I presume there is A LOT of them. Enryx doesn't everyone who register (download) TMNF give an e mail adress ? I think I did..

You can enter none, the game will only tell something like "You won't be able to recover your password if lost" iirc

I would appreciate if Nadeo could tell us a bit more about their plans. Imagine you return from your summer holidays just to see that your account has been deleted.

I understand that many players have several accounts and some people just create fun accounts and forget about them. But please, don't delete accounts of players who have a good rank and used to play very much online. I know some very good inactive players who use free accounts and it would be a shame if you treated them the same as cheaters or fun accounts.

Regards,
Jadis

I have very few information about when accounts may be deleted. However I know that only TrackMania Nations Forever accounts whose owners give us the permission to delete them will be deleted.
