    Yes, it is illegal, you can only purchase items from the store (ranks/perks/items) only and you may not trade ingame items for any other items, including MineCraft accounts as it bypasses MineCraft's EULA.

    Do it off site, use Skype or something. Also if you can avoid purchasing with items from the server.

    You are allowed to buy mc giftcodes with skyblock items but not activated accounts.

    Sir, sorry but, there is a thread regarding IRL money trade for ingame items. This is basically trading items for IRL money to buy the gift card

    Buddy, MC gift codes cannot be withdrawed into real money without 3rd party withdrawl methods. It is NOT trading in-game money for real money.

    The reason MC gift codes are legal to buy is because you are buying an unactivated copy of the game, which is not violaton the EULA.

    I'm not sure, but I have heard so from other players in the past. Don't quote this as I'm not 100%

    On a side note; why is buying CSGO items or an optifine cape illegal? It does not even violate the EULA in any way, shape or form.

    Well, Idk, but I think there is like no chance the server will make money, while with another account, they may

    It still doesn't violate EULA.
