Let’s all be honest here. Alt farming is at an all time high. Let’s also be honest with the whole tribunal report cases not fixing this issue. Sure individuals get banned, warned, etc. but hey, new alt new day. The chances of getting caught in such a large world with such a small population are very small. Granted the combat news makes it slightly easier to spot them. But not always. As we have seen sometimes we have false positive results where the combat news report is genuinely someone just killing a bunch of people. Is this a problem? I’d like to say yes. I dislike how people with alts can farm them for massive pvp marks, mainly because I don’t have any alts. But then part of me wonders if that’s just a perk you get when you spend another 40 bucks on the game, or a bit less when it’s on sell. Obviously the devs have condoned it. But the enforcement and ability to actually spot them effectively is not there. Combined with constant reliance on being in a top nation with resources and a need for pvp marks. It’s the perfect storm, so to speak, for alt farming, and it almost seems to be brewed up perfectly by the development of the game. My Solution: I know for a fact that the steam site, and just basic computer IPs will 9/10 times show that two accounts are coming from the same household. Sure you can change stuff around to get around that, but most people don’t. And there are other ways regardless of that to know. With this in mind I don’t see why It can’t be developed to where when I, OneEyedSnake, buy an alt, Name it whatever I want, lets say BadBenny, and then go out and kill it. In the combat report it says “OneEyedSnake has sunk Russian BadBenny off the coast of x.” See the difference there is it actually says the name of the player sunk. Now every combat news whore and their multiple wives can see that I killed my own alt. At this point the chances of getting caught are 100%. And not only that, but gunuinley good players won’t have any more issues being reported. The devs will have an easier life in the future, we will as well, the game will be more balanced, and you alt farmers can die in your irrigation trenches along with all the other labor hours you left waste away. TLDR? Through use of legitimate IP screens combat news makes it obvious when you are farming an alt. Thus making the risk way too high for the rewards.
