I see our favorite little topic has come up again and before I post anything please let me state the following.......
This rule is very confusing to both players and those who try to enforce it.
I have seen many say they get banned for it and others who have no problems with it at all.
It is the MH who has to determine if anything fishy is going on and in many cases nothing is done as no rules are being broken.
What is of much debate is players/staff interpretation of what is considered "for ones own benefit"
Since Travian is reviewing this rule it is best not to put any official quote at all till we know more and I will ask tomorrow when more people are online and can get a more conclusive answer on what is currently being done and/if we can expect some kind of timeline for an answer.
My thoughts are as they were before. If you are playing the account legally and want to be a farm and that makes you happy then be a farm
This fits the simmers life perfectly. When leaders call for a resource push, is that any more different?
Many times that request comes with a warning that if you do not participate then you will be kicked and farmed.
So with that are you playing your account for your benefit or are you being forced to play a certain way for another's benefit?
So even with that scenario a player could be guilty of not playing his account for his benefit.
This is why last I heard this was being reviewed as it is open to a lot of different interpretation.
As I stated before I will ask about this again and see if I can find out what is going on with it so we all will know.
