Alternate Accounts

There is nothing more annoying when an alliance has as many a 100 alt accounts that they use like cattle to cheat in this game. Stop being so cowardly and use alts to hold POI's or block open areas like a shield. You are blocking spots for players that want to play this game instead of chronic cheating because you don't have the capability to play this game using your own alliance members. Stop cheating. EA ❤️❤️❤️❤️ up and start blocking IP addresses from one area from creating more than 2 accounts.

    Apart from not knowing for certain every time that it is an alt in an alliance and it not necessarily being intended as an exact number but a general indication of a high number, I think the OP was making the point that one alliance group of 50 was also controlling 100 (or a very high number) other accounts.

    However, the issue of alt accounts has been discussed many times and we've not seen any action on them. Abuse of them in particular ways led to some changes in the game a few years ago, but they're now 'allowed' although when I started playing they weren't but many used them and no action was taken.

    If the OP has evidence of abuse as described, he should a) tell us the world he's talking about and b) provide that evidence of abuse (similarity of account names etc) to show that they are linked.

    I sent in a boatload of pictures but here's some. And my issue is not some alts being used. TTD in this case on Tib 42 I have seen having as many as 3 ❤️❤️❤️❤️ alliances setup of single of double base accounts. (See pic's) It has not been complained about enough in my opinion. And because they are doing it excessively everyone has to play like them because they are setting the ground rules. There are ways of blocking them so that the accounts cannot be created and joined to another alliance for movement such as don't allow an account with one base to be subbed period. Do not allow accounts with one base past level 20 area. Do not allow 2 or 3 base accounts past level 30 area. Make them play the account if they want to use it.

    Alliance made up of alts.

    A 2nd alliance made up of alts.

    Examples of where TTD has used. 10+ alts in one area to block and secure POIs by killing alts.

  • I think not allowing single bases past level 20 area or less than 3 bases past level 30 area a good idea. I think though there is a lack of investment in development in this game so it would not happen. They could have added the 3rd party script mods in years ago but haven't bothered. I'm starting to think that suggestions are a waste of time

    The moderators actively encourage this style of game play. While enforcing the multiplayer rule, at least in extreme conditions such as these would be relatively easy, complaints of this game play for 10 years shall continue to fall on deft ears. If you want to combat this style of game play, your only choice is to pay to play and to create more accounts than them.

    I dispute that moderators (plural) actively encourage - this one does not and I know of none that do!
    You seem to have forgotten that moderators are here for the forum only and have no role in the game itself or its gameplay style.

    I was referring to mods in game vs. forums.

    There are no mods in game (or rather in-game mods).

    Just forum moderators who play the game.

    The result is the same, but yes. Playing on any server is akin to the wild west.
