It would really be an interesting idea, mostly to Nadeo! :D But also for those who want to open a High Ranked Server, and dont have enough coppers and no way to get those in a reasonable life time! :pil

If you have buddies or clanmates, they can donate to you.
I suppose you could also "donate" real money to someone for their donation of coppers.

Easiest way is to just open up an 0-50K or 0-60K Server. Make it successful, crowded, be a nice Admin who cares about the players, add a nice donate Panel and you will get Coppers in no time to open up more than one Server above 60K.

No, it's not possible, and it would also be illegal, most likely.

No one would do that anyway, since for 30k coppers you can buy a game worth €30, which would mean 50k coppers is at least €50 :P

Didnt knew you could buy TMUF with coppers! :) Anyway, my offer is negotiable, open to suggestions and offers! Supose someone haves TMUF and it haves 50k coppers, and dont want or dont need to use them, its better to have 30 or 40 euros than the coppers that he will not use! He can take his girlfriend out to have a nice Dinner and Cinema! :D

I think maybe you are underestimating the value of coppers.
With my United account I recieve 50 coppers/day. I believe you have to log in with your account to recieve the coppers and it takes me approximately 1 minute to log in (by the time my pc has to warm up and all that crap....just bear with me) .
You want 50k coppers so 1000 days/logging in or 1k minutes = 16.66 hours. For arguments sake let's say I am only worth $10.00 per hour (I'm American...I use dollars...and in my job I charge much more than $10.00/hour) easy math tells us that equals $166.60.
Then on top of that you have the cost of the electricity and internet used to obtain those coppers not to mention the cost of keeping a location for the pc (my house mortgage in other words) and the cost of the pc itself.
All of these elements and many more help to determine a fair value after which you have to factor in the 'market' (supply and demand and willingness to sell which in this case "might be illeagle").

So I suggest considering all of these factors before placing such a low price on coppers.

P.S. I only have 10k coppers so I'll sell you 10k for $10.00

Selling virtual things for real money is illegal, at least in Europe (since you talk about € )... You can bring it in all the ways you an, you can say "most likely" or everything, it will stay illegal...
