Questions & Answers


Please read these questions and answers for more information, instead of relying on assumptions based on the old guardian program.

What is the difference between Small and regular Guardian

Other than the different hourly bonus credits, they are the same in terms of rewards. The rates are different, as Small Guardian you support us for $10 a month, as regular Guardian for $15 a month.

Is it possible to become a Guardian for one month only?

No, 3 months Small Guardian is the minimum. If you think it's too much, please consider making a regular donation, click here.

What if I still have a valid special aircraft ticket?

If your special aircraft ticket has not yet expired, you have two options:

  1. The three, six or 12 months of your Guardian ticket can also be added to your special aircraft ticket. When the Guardian ticket expires, you will still have your aircraft ticket for the period of time that was left on it when your Guardian donation was processed.
  2. The time left on your special aircraft ticket will be converted to additional time on your Guardian ticket.
    Additional time on Guardian ticket = Aircraft ticket time / 9
    Additional time on Small Guardian ticket = Aircraft ticket time / 6
The first option is default. If you prefer the other option, send an e-mail to niels@area00.com or put "option 2" in your Transaction Note.

When I stop playing, can my ticket be suspended or transferred to someone else?

No.

When I have Guardian status and I delete to start a new character, can staff transfer the credits from my old pilot to my new one?

No, you start with the seed credits the game provides, by giving up your old character you give up your previously earned credits. If your ticket has not expired, you will get the hourly bonus on your new salary making starting over already much easier.

Can staff transfer x credits to my character on another game server?

No, you start with the seed credits the game provides on that game server. If your ticket has not expired, you will get the hourly bonus on your new salary making starting over already much easier.

What is different from the old Area00 Guardian Program?

  • Old Guardian support was $30-50 per month.
  • No payout of x amount of credits per donation. You will get a bonus on your character's hourly payments instead, when you have a sortie within the last 24 hrs.
  • No need to donate monthly to keep the Guardian Status, your account will always retain the status subject to the terms and conditions. Only the Guardian Ticket will expire after 3, 6 or 12 months and can be renewed for a shorter or longer term.
  • No Guardian newsletter, although we may have a special edition of the Area00 newsletter for our Guardians.
  • Staff will not change your callsign on request, you will be able to do this yourself in a future version.
  • Staff will not assist you with any credit transfers, not even between your characters nor gameservers.

When my Guardian ticket expires, does this mean I have to donate again?

It's up to you, please support Area00! You are not required to donate again to keep the Guardian medal, but the Guardian benefits do require a new ticket. You can donate for Guardian again, change from/to Small Guardian, or postpone it till later.

Can I upgrade/downgrade my Guardian Status?

Yes, take into account your hourly bonus and type of medal will change. It's not possible to keep both medals. When downgrading, it's best to wait until your current Guardian ticket expires.

My account was hacked, can I get my status/ticket back?

It depends, hacked accounts are usually a result of account sharing or poor security on your part. If we find no evidence of real hacking on our end, then the status/ticket will not be returned.

Is it possible to trail the Guardian aircraft first?

No, they are strictly for guardians. The Guardian program is purely aimed at raising funds to support Area00, the guardian-only aircraft are not intended to give you a huge advantage in the game. The F-35B is the VTOL version of the F-35A. The SR-71 and Falcon 50 are unarmed.

Will there be more benefits for Guardians in future?

Fair and balanced gameplay have been and will remain an important consideration when Guardian-only benefits are concerned. Priority is on offering an enjoyable gaming experience to all. However it is possible more or different benefits are added in future versions.

I heard Guardians also get special treatment by staff when they break the rules?

No. Guardians have to follow the rules like every other player. Staff does not make any exceptions for Guardians. Past instances where Guardians were seemingly getting away with something was due to the founder promising to take personal care of their accounts, but lacking the time to do so in a timely fashion. This was already dropped as a Guardian benefit in the past. Guardian will not get any special treatment.
