    Hey guys. I asked before in someone elses thread but i figured i should just start ny own. Im wanting to buy some gems in JPBF. However im just wondering if its safe or not to do so? My account in ios is US, i just changed it to JP for downloading JPBF then set it back to US when i finished. So now when i go to buy gems it lets me and it will bill my US account it seems but i had heard before that alim doesnt like non JP players buying and i could get banned. So i was just hoping to verify if thats true or not? Id hate to go buy some gems and end up losing my account.

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Technically no one outside of Japan is safe, since we're violating A-lim's ToS just by playing.

    That said, buying Gems is safe. I live in the U.S and that's how I've bought Gems in the past. Switch region to Japan to update and switch back to U.S to purchase Gems. The IAP pop up confirmation and your iTunes statement will be in USD when they email the billing information to you.

    Haha awesome! So i dont need to go through all the bs by buying a jp iTunes gift card just to be safe. Thanks a bunch. I got on global today and saw Rosetta was out and was about to buy some gems to get her then i realized why bother? Id get more use out of my money by just using it on jpbf. By the time content is out to use Rosetta in global she'll be outdated anyways.

    I'd like to do the same but I get this screen when trying to buy gems.

    Any idea what it means?

    First 12 gems netted...

    4* Hogar (G)
    5* Garnan (L)
    4* Homosubi (L)
    5* Darvanshel (B)

    Finally got my Darvanshel on BF JP, but the rest has sure been disappointing lol.

    At least I feel good because I finally contributed financially to a game I've been fully enjoying for the last 9 months.

    Again.. why would Alim refuse money? I bought gems last few days just to try get Feeva but failed... so the ban wave thing was a --- "out of control rumor to get everyone scared due to jealous GB players salty about JP players and those who switch got too impatient and use hack and got ban and got into this revenge mode and post all sort of I got ban for no reason in FB, here and everywhere....."

    Still be responsible with your spending please.....
