fix the multi account problem

I am guessing this will never happen since it really seems like you don't care about the multi account issue. But at least maybe make it look like you are trying to do something about it.

    There have been multiple threads and long discussions about 'fixing the multi-account problem'.
    What exactly would you propose that is a) technically possible b) legally possible and importantly c) hasn't been suggested before (and rejected for various reason)?

    I'm sure the developers and the rest of the community would love to here your innovative suggestions.

  • why cry over suck petty rubbish, what gain do they now get, they have messed the game right up panderin to cry babies. wind your neck in.
  • I am not the person getting paid to figure these issues out. You all are. If you have no solution then say so and get rid of the rule. Some people choose to follow the rules others do not. This makes for unfair game play. If you know you can't do anything about it and you know a certain amount of people are doing it then come up with a better solution than a rule you can not enforce. Change the game structure so that it does not give the rule breakers an advantage. Open up worlds so the rest of the players can create multiple accounts to make it even. Force email verification and 2 factor verification for every same ip login. Make it harder to keep up the cheating. Make it so you have to get a txt message code to verify your account and it has to be a different phone number for every account. This response goes in many different directions I know. It is just a bunch of random ideas. But to say it has been all talked about. We are just going to leave it because we don't know what to do is not a solution.

    a) As a moderator I do not get paid!
    b) As a moderator I am not part of the team that does get paid for development
    c) They have introduced a number of changes.
    d) There are many rules in the game that don't get enforced, or players feel they are not being enforced.

    As to your ideas .....

    On every world that is open, anyone can have multiple accounts. It's how you use them that is the problem and can be against the rules - ie you should not use them to gain an advantage. More recent worlds that are closed are closed because the slots for landing on are full and it would require a lot of work to create a new set of slots, probably an enlargement of the world with multiple knock on changes.

    E-mail verification and forcing 2-factor verification is beyond the scope of the developers, the feature is controlled by EA themselves - the same with the use of the IP address to control login.
    Account verification at creation time is, again, an EA controlled part of the complex system and they have not been open to the ideas when they have been put forward many, many times in the past.
