Hi everyone,

ACCOUNT SITTING 90-DAY LIMIT & AUTO-CANCEL
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY 

We've made changes to the way account sitting works.

From now on, you can only sit an account for a maximum of 90 days before your sitting rights will be automatically cancelled by the system.

90 days after being appointed as a sitter, the system will automatically remove a sitter from the holding account.  

A 7-day warning email will be sent to both the sitter and the account holder before the 90-day period is reached.

You can see the "sitting time remaining" on your Account Sitters page, here: http://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/Player/Account?page=sitter

The 90-day clock, for all sat accounts, started today

Once you have been removed as a sitter, the account holder can log back in with their username and password, and reappoint you as a sitter - which resets the 90-day countdown clock.

This also means that the 90-day clock can be reset at any point by the account holder, simply by cancelling and then reinstating a sitter.  This may be useful if, for example, the account holder is going on holiday, but their sitting arrangements are about to expire: before they leave on holiday they can reset the 90-day countdown by removing and reappointing their sitters.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to remind players that sharing account credentials and/or passwords is strictly against the Terms & Conditions of service.

If you have forgotten your password then you can retrieve it from the account login page using the "Forgotten username/password" link directly beneath the "Log In" button.  Instructions for resetting your password will be emailed to the email address provided when the account was created.

Regards,

SC

I only sit my alt, but I certainly approve, sitting should be a temporary measure not a long term one, its "holiday mode" and three months is more than enough.

Thank you for this one SC. I think you guys have just made ALOT of Illyrians happy....possibly a few grumpy too but this is a right step for the future. :)

Oh my Devs the bombs just keep on dropping.  By the end of the week, Illy will be a gritty, futuristic first person shooter.

Best news of this 5-year anniversary update! Thank you, devs. Now players have the opportunity to grow their city count to the max -- they are just going to have to do it without permasats. This really levels the playing field. How many millions of troops will perish in the great permasat void?

Perhaps we need a "permasat war" for all of the big, old alliances to at least have some fun with their permasats before they go the way of the dodo?

That does beg the question what will happen once the permasats are no longer sat upon, will they just sit there waiting for someone to notice they are no longer active, or will the Devs remove the accounts after a time? I mean that is potentially a LOT of cities, and quite a few of the sizable ones that will be up for grabs if they leave them, or just a cleaner map if they remove them.

I think this is a very healthy change for the game.  Well done.

I suggest the developers consider sending a notification of this change to all the e-mails that have been registered to log in to the game.  Maybe with an invitation to return?  Possibly we could get some long-absent friends back.
