We are acutely aware of how many legitimate registrations we get versus illegitimate ones -- much moreso than you (thanks to excellent record keeping by Phantom Leader). This thread is currently concerned with multiple accounts on Nova Test Center which is the only currently available server. Concerns regarding Suncrusher are premature, so try to keep your posts on topic as Ekaika asked you to.

It would make sense to create a second account if you were banned from posting on the forums and wanted to start under a new name but that isn't the case. Judging by the list of newcomers, next to none of them have posted anything in the forums yet. Obviously the multiple/banned accounts need to be purged to maintain an accurate total of how many users will be playing the Emu.

That would absolutely NOT make sense, and would likely result in a perma-ban for ban evasion. The way of appealing a ban is to contact Phant or myself and we'll address it.

Firstly you shouldn't verbally abuse or threaten your wife.

Secondly she can if she wants. Just contact Ekaika and tell him that you have two people in your house that want to play the game. Once he gives you the all clear your wife can create an account and you two can play the game at the same time.

There is a problem with the tracker thing, if i log on my friends account it will flag your tracker that i have 2 accounts when i don't. This might possibly turn into a ban of my account or my friends =/

Is that really necessary? Its a TC, ban by IP at least lol. At least that's a little bit more advanced than just making another account heh.

As a community thing, i don't think its necessarily a good idea to prevent multiple registrations on one machine, but whatever.

Not really that big a deal lol

Currently you can make as many characters on your account as you like and there is an option in LPE that lets you use more than one instance.

Maybe I'm missing something here, or skimmed over your reasoning while I read the thread. What is the crusade against the multiple accounts for anyway? If you are allowed to have as many characters as you want all on at the same time on one account (on Nova now), what difference does it make if someone has 5 accounts and plays the 1 toon on each of those accounts?

I just don't see the logic behind the enforcement, especially since there have already been loopholes already pointed out. I think if the reasoning (again maybe I missed it if it was already pointed out) was made clear, majority of these questions and worries would diffuse and/or explode depending on how well it sits with most people.

I think it is to maintain an accurate representation of the user base numbers and also other concerns which may arise down the road or as a factor of multiple accounts tied to one person.

No, this is a test server. It doesn't matter how many characters you have.

True but i rather get people get used to playing on one character now then have to deal with all the fuzz later when we go live.

Why though, I bet there has to be some benefit for testing with multiple windows open. Test multiple things at a time? Test you afk macros etc. make sure there isn't any bugs in the game.
