Boxing Accounts
« on: December 27, 2021, 03:14:09 PM »
     You have specified in previous posts that only 3 accounts can run simultaneously. If a user possesses 3 computers fe, is it allowed because of that to box more than 3 charakters?

if you have multiple pc's, like in a computer gaming house (as most use in philipinnes, and other locations) the rule applies to each ip/pc separatly.

      Isnt though the purpose of this rule to limit a players overexploitation of the game? If you know for a fact that it is 1 person in use of all those different ips shouldnt you find a fix to restrict him?

Amduscias How long can you write all sorts of nonsense to the Administrator? Didn't you think that some people can have a brother and sister, then they will play with 1 IP? Someone can buy 10 computers why should he suffer because of 1 idiot? Dear GM, please do not change anything, it will only get worse.

just chaning the ip alone is not enough.
many players play from coffee shops in many parts of the worls is very popular, also more then 2 people can live in the same household, using 2 different internet connections and pc.

to determine if it is a different person it means :
1. it is a different pc
2. it's a different ip

the 2 criteria must met, or the antibot won t allow you to log in more then 3 boxes from same ip/pc

As a duscussion: We totally understand your concern,  but this is the most a system can do to determine if the user is or not the same physical person automatically or it would just arbitrarily ban false positives. Also just because you would be able to box more then 3 accounts does not mean you would farm more then 1 active player playing at the pc, instead of the hassle of boxes, and other factors.
Also the resources to box more then 3 accounts, is just more energy consuming that scale proportionally to the rewards in game: the more time you spend in game , the harder it is , the more rewards you should get. it is actually debatable if it would be worth the hassle to box so many boxes, except maybe to do raids, even so would take lots of time, compared to active intelligent party/players.

We could make anytime intelligent raids/bosses, but most people were against it when we added such things, perceived as making things harder for all players
