I don't give a damn anymore. There are 3 new threads for this every day. If you want to complain, do it on one that's already here.

Oh it's Lord0fHam, or should I say... Ronald William Buckley. Mad he's been discovered, and quiet advocate of dual accounts.

Guys, I just can't keep this to myself anymore. I have to admit, I also covertly endorse drone strikes and GMOs.

Re: 1st day in Castle Doctrine

This thread is exactly what I'm talking about.  A new player joins the game and his first post is ridiculed by the usual suspects.  No wonder people are leaving the game in droves.

With a little bit of patience you will learn how to handle the various aspects of this game, and even how to cope whit dual account users.

Be patient, be careful, and learn how to protect what's yours big_smile

...and you just won the douche reward, Ham. Didn't you know that cockslap is an anagram of capslock? You just cockslapped a new player, man. Do you really hate yourself that much? You are projecting your self loathing onto others as far as I can tell. Want went wrong in your life, dude?

EDIT: You can tell me, Ham. I won't judge. Promise.

Re: 1st day in Castle Doctrine

Well, sadly, there's nothing that can be done about dual accounts.

All multiplayer games are vulnerable to dual accounts, or friends cooperating unfairly.  Even online poker has this problem.  If we are friends, and we tell each other our hands in a holdem game, we have a huge advantage over other players at the table.  This happens in real life poker too (secret teams of players who signal to each other have a huge advantage over others at the table).

That said, early on, we did a lot of work to close any "free money farming" loopholes connected to multiple accounts.  Most of the remaining issues involve information sharing between accounts (or even between friends).  I think some people are not aware of exactly how difficult the world has been made for multiple accounts already (like, if your second account dies, you can't see its new house for 24 hours, etc.).

Really, there's no way to prevent people from taking advantage of information sharing.  Even if I somehow blocked dual accounts (impossible without a lot of collateral damage), friends could still email each other, or even call each other, to share information.


All that said, please be nice to each other in the forums!  smile

Re: 1st day in Castle Doctrine

I am just sick of seeing a new thread about this issue every day. I have no problem with people talking about it, but people don't need to make a new thread every single time.
