well it is very easy to say yes, i mean, one held Norway the other UK. and no attacks were ever sent, plus borders were at 1 on a FFA game..does seem suspicious.(Plus Both from Poland), only other thing (which i have seen happen) is sort of a truce statement. However this would have been seen on public chats.
Were PMs aloud?

2v2: 159 / 276 (58%)

more evident, thats a lotta games

+same tagline, bio and both seen less than 15 minutes ago

blacklist them

I still do not understand why this game allows users to possess multiple accounts.

How do you prevent multiple accounts? Can't use IP for many reasons. How else do you limit it? Require credit card info? Drivers license number or similar documentation?

Plenty of other games prohibit multiple accounts. This is not reinventing the wheel...

EDIT: and by other games, I mean free to play browser based games that are directly comparable to Warlight

Well, what about Alts then?
I think its fine to have multiple accounts so long as they don't impact anyone else's game play.
So, playing with multiple accounts in the same game should be against the rules unless its you vs your alts or something like that, as that wouldn't impact anyone else.

Playing with multiple accounts to gain an unfair advantage IS against the rules and will be punished if reported.

Dog berry, if it's so easy what are the methods they use?

Though I have been known to play a couple of those games I've referenced, I have never been involved in the administration of any online game. However, if you are really curious, I can put you in contact with people who have the answers to those questions. I never said I had the answers, only that I've played in a LOT of different communities that came up with a remarkably different answer to what has been accepted as normal here.

And Japan77, I fail to see the distinction between multiple accounts and alternate accounts.

Alts are generally used to be in multiple clans at once, something I find useful, as they allow people to keep friend groups together, even as some want to move onto more strat oriented clans, as well as allowing for 1 person teams in 2v2s/3v3s
Multis from what I understand are used to "cheat the game", generally in FFAs.

Its a shame there are no ways to stay in contact with friends from other clans... :-D

Yeah, its a pretty messed up system, as chat games and mail threads can get close, but somethings in the forum can't be seen without an alt, and to some those sections were a pretty big part of being in a certain clan.
