What Is Bad ALT behaviour?

Recommended Posts

@admin @Ink fellow Captains,

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=917654264

Admin just re-edited an POST regarding ALTs. The STEAM Guide I did above is a BASE point to start moving the ALT question forward.

So, if we had a Rule Book on ALT behavior what five things are a big NO...?

Just a quick additional note. I'm not too far away from a Modulated Modifier that can run a fleet delivery system and avoids players. This area of bots is closely related and will need addressing in time.

 

Norfolk.

As per 

a tribunal can only be replied upon if you are reported, reported, or providing additional proof.

So only folks with alts can reply here.

Hmm, I don't have an alt. Crock...

(I think this can be moved to discussions, for, well, further discussion.)

I use alts and not sandboxie. I'm just crashing steam and opening steam again with my second account. Alt playing with several account don't need sandboxie. I can make run 3x navalaction on same computer on same time. And for your information they are all part on the same nation but i didn't want to pollute my perks with useless skills. I got 2 traders and one notrader character.

Congratulations [Plerrick de Badas]

not quite really I was getting at my friend. My poorly worded script I must apologize for. The Guide is to make a basic knowledge guide or start point. You don't need this obviously but old timers like myself do. Most players would know what an ALT is but not all the ins and outs. That's the point see?

With your extensive knowledge of ALTs what 5 rules would you put in place as a Tester...?

 

Norfolk.

Ps couldn't find your name in the database?

1. Farming / Blocking Port Battles slots.

2. Using alts to screen / drag others into battles

3. Spying alts (If I find out that one acc is 100%, he is untouchable. In real life spy would be sent to prison, sentenced to death or expelled from community. In this game even obvious spies cannot be killed or removed... Actually... They can. You need another alt to killed enemy alt hmm... Alt Wars)

4. Economy Alts. Other nations have easier economy. Most players use Spanish Alts on PvP EU. That actually makes smugglers / smuggling useless...

I ask weeks in tribunal to get a book on rules and I already ask statement about alts. I'm not ashame to have multiple account. I got one free copy of the game as early tester, I buy a new one to support it and finbaly a third one for my clan.

I will not hide for that neither claim for glory. 

For me if alt are same nation alt there is nothing that should be limited to them.

If you are stupid enough to pvp with your alts it's your problem

Using alt in other nation to eco can't really be prevented as it's easy to hide so it should probably not be limited.

Using alts to make pvp/pb should be prevznted. As it can broke balance

So the 5 rule:

1) same nation alt are ok in all situation

Crossnation alts

2) player has to declare Devs their alt. This info is confidential. If dev discorcer themself people use crossnation alt, both alt are reset

3) alts can't access chat neither engage pvp battle (like in basic cutters) neither join pb, neither use smuggler flag

4) only purpose on alts is to craft ressources not for nation. They have to sell them through shop.

 

Waiting Devs to move on I would say;

1)same nation alt ok

2) crossnation alt just for eco

A very naive view to enforcement.

Your first assumptions regarding alts must always be:

  1. They can not be detected through technical means.
  2. They can not be banned.

Now bring into this picture a player who wants to get a head start (through p2w). He will do anything he can get away with.

Hence in-game punishment must become part of the (in-)game.

Any time you intentionally interfer with the playing of teh game by another player for teh sole purpose of being a dick... Doubly if you are doing it to your own side attemnpting to piss them off so they Green on Green you for blocking their line of fire or stealing loot you did NOTHING to get...

 

  These are some of the reason I wish the Devs would make it so you cant enter a mission unless for an enemy of in that mission runners group... Open world  AI attacks is still fair game but when someone is getting missions for money and loot and someone comes in just to interfere that is NOT the other team that is messed up Since you are not allowed to shoot them

Given how - outside of PvP - the game is pretty slowpaced, I've been having good fun as of late with running an alt via sandboxie.

To summarize.
