There are some members who are unable to donate due to their country's laws or restrictions and who we, who can donate , would like to help at times.  If there were a way to share the enkord cash or purchases, I bet it would increase donations.

At first, I was "meh" about your idea, but then I realized that when I didn't know what to do now that I researched the whole tech tree in less than 100 days and had no reason to nuke or bombard anyone, that I could be a mercenary of someone or alliance, but right now only for lada wards which I don't use those I already have, it doesn't motivate me much, but if I could store some microscopes etc for a future hero, that would be fun. Well if this idea even exist one day, berserker will probably not make not those items transferable between heroes, but that could still help to, say make war victory easier and more interesting, instead of destroying hopeless newbies I could be hired to attack a stronger target to help someone gain land for example.

Not only it does sound interesting, it also doesn't seem like some people would donate less, or if they do, it would be just because someone else donate for them so it's still as balanced, and as hope said, some generous players could donate for those that can't, I heard that for example gambling is forbidden in Poland so it's likely similar for free to plays in some countries. Kids and poor people can't donate either.

Exactly my thought anonymous, and if I were helping someone gain a victory and they ran out of funds for speed ups, I would be donating just for them to win.

We already had this implemented in our previous game (GUNROX) and it resulted in a lot of trouble:

  1. Ability to transfer items resulted is motivation of stealing / hacking accounts. Currently when you can use items only on your account there is no motivation for hacker to break in.
  2. Ability to charge money to be delivered to other player has ways to abuse too. Imagine someone charging cash to you with his credit card and then turns out credit card was stolen, the payment was fraudulent or the money was charged back? In normal case we just ban that player. Now if he paid for someone else we need to ban both players, because otherwise hackers could charge money with fraudulent transactions using proxy accounts as payers and their real accounts as recipient. Since we are going to ban both accounts, this way hackers can provoke ban of target victim by offering to "charge" money for him. In GUNROX we have warned players in advance before the accepted payments from other players with big red letters, but this didn't stop legitimate players accepting the payments and being banned when payments were charged back.

Here we have a very good community in Totem Tribe and I don't want to risk it with such troubles, despite the fact that this feature would make us make more money for sure.

Well I think there are workarounds of how to it could be implemented to prevent those issues, but maybe it would still have other issues, in fact I think that the biggest free to play games don't have options to pay for someone else so if you google about why you may find that there's no way to prevent abuses. Maybe I'm wrong and they do though, I never played fortnite, clash of clans etc so if actually they have such options you can then look how they did to make it secured.

Now, even without that, I wish I could become the mercenary of someone anyway for something else, right now I don't care about resources or lada wards. At best only a neighbor can lend me world resources, if they have unlocked it at all, a lot of players don't reach renaissance (or very late) and a lot prefer to defend themselves with the powerful greek fires so they can't lend their silk, they don't even know if they have one.

Yes, if there was a way to access accounts, I am sure it would already be an issue. My idea was more about being able to give, like we do our own heroes, more than keys and ladas. I was in a situation where a friend was trying to win the wealth victory and her wifi crashed several times..She missed it by 3 minutes of apocalypse!! Saddest thing ever! All she needed was one 15 minute speed up but her finances were already maxed out. We all were doing all we could with friend helps and resources but it would have been great to be able to give her one speed up.

Transferring actual funds would not be part of that

I have answered that in #1, pay attention and try to understand what I mean
