I'm confused by what you mean by "multiple accounts". My brother and I both used (when we played the game preCU) the same account with different characters. So are you saying we can't do this now? Or just that we can't play online at the same time? Or just that we can't play two characters on the same computer at the same time?

An individual can not have or play on more than one account. Each player should have their own account.

you can use the same account to have different toons like you did before

as long as there is a single account attached to you IP adress you are good to go

you can also play both at the same time on the same computer by turning on multiple "INSTANCES" (not accounts :P) but you will have to tab back and forth

play two at once by running two computers on the same account on a network

Ok, it seems like I'm getting contradictory answers...

An account can have multiple characters which two people on different computers at different locations can play on though?

We are in different cities, but he is going to tell me the key after I finish updating, so we can play together. So IP address should not be a problem. I'm just trying to figure out if I will have to buy my own copy of the game or if we can both play on the same account with different characters at the same time but at 2 different locations.

Each person should have their own account. Each individual can have only one account. So no, two people should not be sharing an account. Each person should have their own account, which can have multiple characters.

Ok, so we will be banned if we both try to play at the same time?

ahh in this instance the legit way is to buy your own copy ... if he lets you "borrow" his copy to install this is pirating

as far as multiple computers playing a single account in different locations is kind of pointless if you both own a copy .... it dont cost nothing to create an account here after you have your disks

my example was for computers in a single house

Me and Fireblade are husband and wife, we use our own computers, have our own accounts but are on the same network so share the same IP. Will this be ok? I think he sent an email as requested, but i dont know if anyones read it or if its been acknowledged.

If yours or his account isn't banned i guess someone did and you don't have anything to worry about.
