I used to play with my brother in the same house. Not banned yet....
I have also heard of various husband/wife and parent/child combinations playing illyriad without problem. I think the devs look at more than just IP address when sorting out multi-accounting

I remember some years ago a GM mentioned that they use an advanced behaviour filtering mechanism to find out if two accounts were run by the same person or even by a robot script. Going solely by IP address is not viable since many users will be logging in from a place where there is one or a few public IP addresses shared by a large community. Even some ISPs do this in countries where IP v.4 addresses are very scarce.

Thanks for all the help everyone.

It seems I was worried about nothing.

I now have no excuse for banning my son from the game.

I can't have anything without someone wanting to muscle in.

I have my referral link on my profile, as far as I know, that's not illegal. I've had a bunch of people use it to make a 2nd account. I usually send these players a gift in return for this. Haven't been told to take it off by the GMs yet, so I figure it's safe.

See, I always figured the rule was 2 accounts per person. Since there is no way to actually 100% prove who is behind the screen (at least legally), I figured that was enforced with IP (same device, probably same person) and Email(definitely same person). This is why I've never allowed anyone to play Illyriad on the same device as I (I just can't risk losing my accounts). I have a few family members that want to play as well, but they are stuck using an iPhone to do it (And Illyriad just doesn't work on mobile devices the same way as a computer) However, lately I've heard of people allowing their spouse to play on the same computer. I have a sibling who I'd gladly let play after I'm done checking in, how do I prove it's my sibling and not me though?

If I say what I think, I could earn a ban forever.

Why not just get rid of the Terraforming?
