    Default @DEVS: is this cheating? (ios "alts")

    Hi devs, I am hoping you'll see this and reply to it.

    With the introduction of ios app for CA it has become legal for one person to have multiple CA accounts, and some people are using them for purposes that would have been cheating under the old rules... but if you ask them about it they'll just say "it's an ios account"

    I have 4 situations in mind:

    1. Using one or more of your ios accounts to heal in monsters after an account that you consider your main (FB account or older ios account) .This has as result that the main account will have more energy available for quests and trading essences which will give that account more skill points to use than it should normally have --> unfair advantage in my opinion.

    2. Using your ios accounts to fortify in land of earth with the express purpose of clearing up trading space for your main account. Again this saves energy and time for the main account --> unfair advantage in my opinion.

    3. Having all your ios /fb accounts in the same guild. One active person would then mean several active accounts in a guild battle. --> unfair advantage in my opinion.

    4. Spending the stamina of your weaker ios accounts on your strongest account to make the stronger account level faster, thus gaining more skill points and more power faster than normal --> unfair advantage in my opinion.


    It would be great if you could clarify this for me and other players that don't like cheating.


    Thread got some dev feedback. I am still pretty confused

    Practically this thread is about how people use their ios accounts, not about web3, which yes I know you beta-tested.

    Thanks for your input.

    and yet you included Point 2. which can ONLY be done via web3 as the iOS App does not have it.. My comment also suggested the introduction of Web3 has only made it easier for all of it to be done but hey how relevant is iOS to you anyway? You refuse to get such a device and therefore can't really knock it can ya?

    For me....NO...

    1.Multiple account is a violation of FB's TOS only and not of Phoenix Age's.

    2.Due to low energy count, is asking your friends/guildies to fortify LoE for you so you can trade some of your essence an unfair advantage?

    3.Why not? Imagine if that multi-ios-account player becomes inactive, then all his/her accounts automatically becomes a dead weight for the guild. Not everyone can play 365 days a year.

    4.If I use my account to do a suicide run on you because I want to hide, that would make you level faster too. Can I use that logic to have your account banned?
    We are now at the halfway point of our disjointed epic. If you are just arriving, you have missed little.

    I have to play on the same servers as both ios booster accounts and the ios boosted accounts. So it is relevant to me.

    Technically Speaking.. 1,2,3 are legal per CA's rules I believe..

    1. I haven't said having multiple accounts is cheating. I am saying using them in a pyramid scheme to make one account stronger is cheating.

    2. If your guildies want to do it's fine, as long as they're all main accounts. If everyone uses their alts to help their mains including yours I would see that as cheating.

    3. They can get booted.

    4. If I ask you to use your alt to help me as well we're both cheating. If you're a crazy stalker no.
