    Yes if you can figure out how to go to those countries   UO sites and buy using a card that does not charge conversion fees. 10 bucks a month is cheap enough for me not to hassle with that.
    Focus on what you can do, not what you can't.

    well, he said, buy at your own risk.
    I heard that 3 people already got the codes deleted from their accounts and EA banned the accounts, so Good Job *****, teaching people how to get banned.

    and isnt this ***** the guy that script gate to his castle 24/7?

    If you are buying from the EA store in another country, they are real.  If you are buying from someone using a stolen CC, then they will be tagged as stolen when the owner notifies the card company.

    Is Discord a good source to buy from?  I don't know.  Monthly renewal works for me until my card expires.

    If it's valid code purchased with valid cash, why not?
    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Buying codes from the store legally is, illegal? Mesanna is going to come to your house herself and arrest you. :D Hopefully she uses the fluffy-cuffs.

    People have been doing this forever, where have you been? I personally take vacation every 6-months exactly and buy codes while I'm in the said country and you can't prove otherwise.

    You should tell those people not to their parents credit cards without permission and they chargeback/dispute the charges. Also feel free to PM me the name of the person for uh research purposes. My next 6-month vacation is coming up soon ;)

    its legal in any country VPNs are legal.  EAs losing a ton of money, i dont know anyone who pays 60 anymore when you can get them for 12-15 easily.  without getting into details, codes that cheap directly contribute to in game inflation.

    Can you apply multiple 6 month codes at once ?

    Answer is yes, my accounts last till 2025.

    Considering the lack of bug fix, New expansion, gm support and cheaters running amok, etc, I don't mind the cheaper price.
