"I'm not sure of the benefit of having the refill. 750 yeps for 500 yeps. 750 yeps = $5 if I use cash. I can purchase 450 yeps for $3 using cash. If I was interested in purchasing yeps for anyone... the cash way would seem better. Or am I missing something?"
750 YEPs is not = $5, as you cannot buy US$ with YEPs. YEPs cannot be
redeemed for cash, so this is an indirect way to redeem 750YEPs at the rate of
225 YEPs = $1
This facility is provided for those having excess YEPs that they are never
going to use to play in Tourneys, or buy Products from Eliters Store, or play in
Cash Tourneys, or buy Raffle Tickets, or buy or renew Premium Membership.
This is why this facility is only available to Premium Members having over
5000 YEPs, so they may use their unneeded YEPs to help Guests.
If you don't have extra YEPs to dispose of, and you wish to help a Guest, it
is of course better to use cash to buy an unlimited amount of YEPs.
"I do have a question about yep balances though. If I was interested in purchasing yeps for any peep, I would like somehow to be assured of that peep's need. This is not currently an option. I understand that we do not wish for our balances to be general knowledge. I have noticed that if I purchase yeps for a peep it will show me their balance after the purchase. The only suggestion I can dream up is maybe a way to revoke purchase ... like an undo/withdraw button....not great idea but....
We cannot make other players YEPs Balances public. However with this Guest
Refill, the system will check for you if the Guest has over 400 YEPs already,
and will stop the transaction automatically. This prior checking facility is not
available when you use Cash to buy YEPs for any Member.
