Fire Emblem Heroes has come a long way from what it used to be, and the same could be said for account trading. Back in the old days of the game, account trading offers/giveaways were rampant on the fourms. You had to either be quick to jump on an offer or hope that either your account was good enough for a trader to accept or you could find a giveaway for a good free account. This is how I got my first Hector: a guy gave away an account with him and a 4 star Fae (plus someone else) and I was lucky enough to jump on it. That isn't the one I use now: that honor would go to an account with Jaffar, Nino, Hector, Eldigan, and other assorted heroes I got after trading the former account with a guy who wanted Hinoka (I got Hinoka on the first account during the first seasonal banner). I was also a fan of rerolling. I shouldn't have to tell anybody what this means, but if you don't already know, rerolling is when you reset your app and go through the process of doing the tutorial, waiting for the game to download, and spending the free orbs you get on a banner, hoping that you can get one, two, or even three 5 stars that you desire. Account trading overall has died down here (don't know about Reddit and other places) because those who have good accounts have kept and used and gotten attached to these accounts, me included. Rerolling has died off not only because of the last reason, but also because the game has gotten much bigger, and I'm not just talking about popularity: now the game is over a gigabyte, and it takes a long time just to finish one reroll, never mind the dozens it might take in order to obtain good or even optimal results. Tl;dr; account trading and rerolling were popular before people got gud at the game. I think both of those served their purposes; so that new players could get a start they wanted before they invested their time into the game, and thus I say to this catagory of posts: thank you, and rest in peace.
