There are a few things which will prevent a player from sending a pledge as a gift to another player:
- A brand new RSI account cannot start sending gifts immediately. You can start sending gifts to your friends 30 days after making your first pledge and gaining Backer status.
- Your RSI Account must have Two-Factor Authentication enabled.
- Game packages, standalone ships, and other pledge store items may be gifted once. Once a pledge has been gifted it will be ‘locked’ to the account on which it has been accepted.
- Pledges acquired through the use of Store Credit, either in full or in part, cannot be gifted or traded.
- High value pledges (above $1,000 USD) cannot be gifted or traded.
- Pledges acquired from special promotions or rewards (like the Aegis Sabre Raven from the Intel SSD promotion) cannot be traded.
RSI Support will not assist with circumventing these restrictions.
