Shared IP address

Post by enforcer@bigpond.net.au » Wed Dec 05, 2012 7:02 am

My self and Sir Valor have a problem. Whenever he attempts to interdict any of my villages he gets a message that we are both sharing an ip address. this is not correct the connection is one way as i can send interdiction to his villages, is there something that needs to be done to fix this?

yeah, don't play over the same IP. Most likely the reason you can send ID to your friend is because you have a premium token in play whereas your friend does not. If you both have premium tokens in play the restrictions placed on playing over the same IP are removed for the duration of the premium token in play.

Well sometime within the last few days you and he did share the same IP which gets the restriction put on both accounts for 7-10 days. You have premium so ofc you are not subject to the restriction, it should reset for your friend after several days providing neither of you play on the same IP for that period.

Where is your evidence supporting that?

Im serious, If you have two accounts that arent prem. you cant do anything of the sort with each other. But if you both have premium, you can act like he is another player, regardless of IP. So when money changes hands, you can completely ignore the locks on IP.

Well that discourages players from creating a dozen free accounts form themselves. Yes, it's not fool proof and ppl who are throwing money at the game anyway are not going to stop creating and playing premium on those accounts but by all accounts(no pun intended) it does reduce the attractiveness of more then one account if you cannot finance them.

Something that can trigger the same IP problem is anyone using an IP pool, like dialup or if your ISP doesn't assign IP addresses to your modem's mac id.
