Gift button in Lost Ark Shop disable for a least two weeks by now. It occurred with the block of Punika Powerpass, I believe. Is this correct?
I believe everything is intertwined, like
blocking the powerpasses, disabling gifting and also removing the rapport packs from the shop
as well as 3 day hold for new characters una gold, and rapport gold
I dont know what actually happened, but am assuming:
Bots bought the Punika Powerpass,
bought Rapport Chest from the shop,
did some quick una token farming for gold,
as well as Punika Rapport for more gold,
→ for the 1st bot account, and then use gifting feature for additional accounts
send/sell the gold to somewhere else,
charge back all the money
+get banned, create a new account and start from step 1.
rinse & repeat
Sounds logical to me, with AGS trying to “fix” this by disabling the steps one by one
(Or it is just a coincidence and all of the features get disabled/changed for different, independent reasons)
Pretty close to the story I heard.
