[GAME BREAKING] Alt accounts to destroy the 1 city kingship and to unlock kindgoms

Sat Nov 04, 2017 8:52 pm

hi everyone,

with the new hero gear resulting in way higher attribute points attackers can easily destroy defenses without real losses. like bronze troops and jacques or tiadrin, cleo etc.

on 41 this resulted in a map with 20 captured cities in total.

the strongest kingdom wanted to unlock itself to get more players on board. this time they did not even drop their cities, but just flooded another kingdom with 20+ feeder alt accounts to get more cities for a short period of time. not complaining that this system should be total player power based here (there are already topics).

the thing which will happen next is obvious: as soon as the 1 city kingship goes live, 1 hour before the election other kingdoms will get flooded with alt accounts once more, voting for a non real player as the king instead. those kingdoms can literally do nothing to defend themselves against this game abuse, except creating alt accounts on their own and focussing heavily on siege.

not sure how the situation is on other servers, but on 41 there are several players with 10 or more feeder alt accounts and it just got absurd, since you can not compete with players sitting on literally unlimited resources.

question for the team: would you consider this kind of playing the game as cheating?

if the answer is hopefully yes, please add a mechanism to report feeder alt accounts and ban them.

i think players having 1 feeder account (or a second account they really play for real is kind of ok), 10+ to just feed the res, unlock kingdoms, destroy votes etc. is just too far and will result in many of the "normal" players quitting the game in frustration.

best regards

I only think alternate accounts will be a issue with the king system for losing kingdoms.with only 1-5 cities.

The best soloution for this would probably be that a city should be held for 24 hours before it has the right to vote for king.

Other soloutions are:

1 A city with only sheilded players do not count as votes for the king system..
2. Sheilds are disabled 1 hour before a king vote so feeder accounts cannot participate without risking all of their wealth. (which could also lead to huge problems with regular players too which is why i would never do this but it would fix this issue).

Many other games have systems set up to ban bots. You can’t tell me they can’t do the same with this game. They just have chose to turn a blind eye to it. Most servers have Asian players as the top people and most are top because they are down right cheating with feeder bots.

The election 'vote rigging' etc should be addressed but the issue with the feeder accounts is more the fact the resources dried up few patches ago with the acad / warehouse changes and players simply have no options but to invest time on other accounts .. if there was healthy player base and farm available in server then there is no need for the alt accounts u simply wasting time on growing the main then ...addressing the root cause will solve this issue.

if bots are being used , then they need to address that aswell but i have no issue with players using their own time over many accounts.

Similar idea to what happens on 94
One house in particular has multiple alt toons specifically for feeding all their members with loot and theyre all rich and annoying jacques players
Wouldnt be surprised if they tried this at some point
Alt toons arent needed. Neither are farming accounts
Theres no competition if everyone buffs themself up without even playing the game and by farming secondary toons(which can literally be set up with a bot in under 20m)
Plus we have the issues of people selling farm accounts
Someone even went on the official Fb group trying to sell farm accounts for every server loll....
Its obviously an issue that needs to be dealt with

Ikariam and Travian faced these issues before. Logging in with the same router IP would quickly result in a ban in this case.
