Why not just get rid of the Terraforming?

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

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?

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 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.

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 am not an IT-specialist, but are you sure you use the same IP-adress? As far as I know, each connected device in my wifi-network gets an individual IP a-adress, which in my case is not a fixed IP-adress but rather changing in order of login.
Like more people replied earlier, we never had any problems or comments on the fact that sometimes three Illy-accounts run at the same time from our house, one is owned by my son (Lasco) and the other two are my main (Flatfisher) and my terraforming account.
So I would say stop worrying and if that is not enough, than write an IGM directly to GM Rikoo.
This is the best advice I can give you here!

Flatfisher

-edit-
I read the former post and noticed it isn't GM Rikoo anymore to talk to, but rather GM Cerberus....

GM rikoo used to be the man to talk to about such matters, however he has left for pastures new. 

GM cerberus has replaced him in this role. I suggest dropping him an igm. I find the GM's here very helpful and I'm sure he will clarify things as soon as he has time.

I believe he does a quiz in GC an tuesday nights illy time - usually when I'm in work :(  - you may catch him there in person.

I am not sure about the official rules on this, Det. However, when I was in college my roommate and I both played illyriad and each had 2 accounts and neither of us was banned. I hope you get a more definitive answer from someone else, that's the best I have for you. Hope it helps!

I am reasonably new to the game and have tried one terraform which was fun and profitable.

Obviously I am not as bright as others here as I didn't even know about the option to claim prestige so missed that chance completely as now I know I shouldn't, I wouldn't.

I have a different problem though. My son wants to join the game and I will not let him as, although we have separate computers, we both use the same IP address and I want to terraform some more for the cash. I am loving the game and don't want to break the rules and lose my account.

However I promised I would ask to see if there is a rule in place that allows this.
