I have a sneaky suspicion that 2 different players are actually one real person running two players which I believe is against the rules. One player said he is leaving his troops to another player. The other player said he is making moves for that player that "left". How could you possibly do this?

I have been told by a reliable source (Fizzer) that it isn't technically against the rule to have more than 1 account and play with both accounts at the same time. The exception to this is in coin games and when your 2 accounts aren't playing on the same team.

He also told me you should write in "message to host" before a game starts that the same player will have 2 accounts playing at the same time on the same team. The thing is, most if not all people that play 2 or more accounts at the same time aren't saying it in the "message to host".

You can take over the account of a friend if he gives you his password/email and you use 2 different browsers (Chrome, Google, Explorer, etc.) to run the different accounts. You can also have more than 1 account if you have more than 1 email.

Some people are against alts but most people who have alts put them to good use (being in multiple clans, testing some strategies without being a bully to your teammates, etc.). You can report a guy that multi-accounts only if he uses it in a sneaky way like in FFAs, different teams and/or coin games.

What LeQuébécois said + it's also not allowed to have 2 or more accounts active in the ladders in different "teams" (so no 2 or more accounts in 1v1 ladder or RT ladder at the same time, 2 accounts in 2v2 only in the same team, up to 3 accounts in 3v3 only in the same team).

Half a year ago i had a small conversation with Fizzer about the coin stuff and he said at that point that it was strictly forbidden to play coin games on multiple accounts. So as I can tell from that is that it shouldn´t even be allowed if the accounts haven´t been in the same games which was the case for me.

proof of what i just said.


If Fizzer has changed his stance since then i really should contact him again in that mail thread i have with him an send a link to this thread to confirm with all things i just heard in here.

LoL, nope Wakanari the rules are still the same. And you got lucky with Fizzer there. Many public cases of all accounts getting a ban. I think you read it a bit too fast, because LeQuébécois said that it is not allowed too :)

@Sir, report any suspected multi-accounting :)

I'm guessing this is about the diplo-game you made another threat about?

If so, as I stated there, giving your lands away to someone else doesn't mean you're multi-accounting, a player can just have good relations with another in a game and decide that if they're out they want that player to have their lands.

oh yea, think i read over the word "and" in the sentence
The exception to this is in coin games and when your 2 accounts aren't playing on the same team


But still I've seen many more use alt accounts in free coin tournaments when i'm pretty sure they also have used coins on their main accounts and this is just from the accounts i know about since i probably don't know all the accounts from all the players.

Okay i know those tournament are Free but it's still considered to go for real money so shouldn't this be against the rules as well?

wakanarai, yes it should, the tos state that you aren't allowd to use multiple accounts in a way that will give you an advantage in coin games.
if you enter into a tournament with multiple accounts there is a chance you will end up playing yourself, and give yourself a free win, which will give you an advantage in coin games, thus, not allowed.

^Not quite what Wakanarai is asking about.

He is asking whether you can play with an alt in a free tournament, while the main (coin) account is not playing.
NO, you can not. You should not play coin games on more then one account. Doing so can get you banned. Thus even in RT torunyes with coins and free entry. DO NOT FILL THEM WITH ALTS. Even if the alts are byes! While you are doing morally nothing wrong, it is by definition cheating. If reported, you do risk a permanent ban.

Basically, only play coin games on one account. No exceptions. Don't matter if they are not playing in the same games or tournaments.

I haven't seen anyone play in coin tournament with 2 accounts unless it's 2v2 coin tournaments where they are just playing with 2 accounts (not even sure about that). I was more talking about one day playing a RT coin tournament on the main and the day after playing one on the alt.
