Is this a bug or an exploit to get players to swipe?

Came back to the game with -60 pheons after opening my mails only to find out I can’t use the AH. Does this mean everyone who’s basically been forced into the negative has to swipe in order to use the auction house?

and thats how you monetize the game, other companies should learn from AGS xD

Alienize your player base for digital coin that holds no value… makes sense…
Surely they dont want to lose players due to negligence on their end… Nevermind too late… They already did… also notice how support is straight up ignoring these posts
