ToS breaches

The same person has hit with their main and an alt on at least 2 Mystics and with 2 alts on another 3 Mystics. It looks like a clear breach of ToS to me, and even if was not its against the spirit of the game and has to be stopped. Maybe we shall take the town that person is in till the penny drops :)

The TOS reads: Do not use multiple accounts to gain any advantages. How has this been breached? What advantage to which guild has been gained? How many millions (or should I say thousands) did this person or person's guild ACTUALLY do? But mainly - which guild got the advantage? If you don't show advantage, there is no breach.

When asked in a previous post about what is and is not allowed when it comes to alts and alt guilds this is what was said ..

"Question ... 3. Alts and alt guilds helping main and main guild by hitting the same Mystic wonders as main to help take it out and help the main potentially win
Answer ... 3. Wing guild is okay, alt guild no. If it's blend of two, then alts in the wing guild must not participate."

So using multiple accounts and guilds under your control is against the devs ToS.

Do not use multiple accounts to gain any advantages. Examples for which we need clarification please, on behalf of a number of guilds;
1. Is it now ok for multiple characters to send each other crystals daily?
2. Multiple characters in same guild
3. Alts and alt guilds helping main and main guild by hitting the same Mystic wonders as main to help take it out and help the main potentially win
4. Alt guild be in same faction to help main guild win
5. Grabbing friends crystals on both main and alt accounts
6. Buying gear from the BM with your main for your alt
7. You clarified helping an alt by gifting a pile of enhances once was probably ok but not the other way round, helping the main. What about if you're building an alt to become a main by loading it with help from main and other alts?
8. On fallen or Atlantis. Once main has capped, using alt to help take it down and help main guild win
9. Mains and alts sending each other dreamstones
10. Alts skipping guilds to help main in invasion
11. Alts sharing boss links with main and visa versa

I'm sure they're are the main ones but there are probably more. We're just a bit confused as things seem to be going on recently that were not acceptable and we think, people were penalised for previously


1. assuming you only have two accounts sending each other, then is okay. If you create 8 just for collecting crystals, then no.
2. Not okay.
3. Wing guild is okay, alt guild no. If it's blend of two, then alts in the wing guild must not participate.
4. Same as above (#3).
5. Not sure what this means. If was actually sent to both then okay, if URL manipulating then obviously no.
6. This is fine.
7. Only one transfer is okay, abuse of multiple accounts to use their energy to farm enhances is just wrong.
8. Not okay.
9. This is fine, you only get one dream stone a day anyways.
10. Not okay.
11. This is fine as long as it doesn't affect other players.

I don't plan to keep answering these type of questions. The basic concept is that if you are using alt accounts to obtain competitive advantages through immediate collaboration and immediate knowledge sharing, then it's not okay. Otherwise if you are not bothering other players, not using scripts, and not circumventing game mechanism to avoid purchase points, then no one really cares as much.

The context of the question was alts are helping to take out the mystic wonder to help the main guild potentially win (see bold text in quote). If someone's alts are just randomly hitting mystic and their main guild is not in contention of winning because of the help, then the rule doesn't even apply. As far as I know, there was only one possible case this happened that potentially could even fall under question 3's context, and that triggered us sending a warning. The one before it and I suspect the one after are just people bored with the actual game and want to play meta-game of getting other players punished. Let me make it clear that I am not taking any sides as I also ignored several opinionated complaints against Titan members as well. Please make sure your reports are actually substantial and are actual rule violations (and send those to me via PM).

What is the point of one person having multiple players if not to gain SOME kind of advantage?

Thank you very kindly to the devs for putting the end to this insane witch hunt.

Its not a witch hunt when a rule is spelled out and constantly skirted around and nothing happens about it. Reporting violations are what we were told to do from the start, but because the ruling has once again been changed nothing is going to happen about it once again.

Apparently having multiple guilds post about it does not matter either. Cause I see at least 4 guilds that have commented and complained about what we were informed would not be happening but is still being done.

Just to clarify - not a Titan - never complained about a Titan.

So am I correct then we can all have multiple alts that control multiple guilds as long as the guilds each person controls does not use them for an unfair advantage?
