Stricter Rules for Sitter Accounts

  • Dear players,

    We are happy to share the release of some changes coming to Nordics servers on 05.03.2021 (and also to all other servers in the update during this week).

    These changes were requested by the Community and discussed with our Ambassadors and are aimed to fight against techs and multi accounts.

    We are implementing stricter rules for accounts that are almost entirely managed by sitters.

    Currently, every account whose owner(s) does not log in for more than 21 (uninterrupted) days has its sitter access disabled. The new rule is going to be implemented because it’s okay for a sitter to help manage an account but it’s not okay if an account to be run entirely by a sitter.

    We are tightening the rope for those that abuse this feature.

    After the rollout not only will the maximum number of days be reduced to 14, but also it will no longer refresh entirely after one single login from its owner(s).

    This is how it works:

    Every account starts with 14 days of owner inactivity allowance.

    • For every day that any of the SITTER IS ACTIVE on the account AND any of the owner(s) of the account ARE NOT active, 1 day is subtracted from the allowance.
    • For every day that any of the owner(s) of the account ARE active, 1 day is added to the allowance, regardless of sitter activity.
    • If both OWNER(S) and SITTERS are NOT active, no allowance is added or subtracted.

    Once the account reaches 0 days of owner inactivity allowance, the sitter’s access will be revoked.

    Here are some other details about the rework of this feature:

    Accounts will not be able to gain more than 14 days of owner inactivity allowance.

    Whenever the allowance is about to run out (3 days left) a permanent infobox will be displayed for anyone that manages the account, to remind them.

    To make it simple:

    If only owner is active = +1 day

    If owner and sitter is active = +1 day

    If only sitter is active = -1 day

    If nobody is active = nothing

    For most players, this rule won’t be affecting them much, but overall to maintain the ability to have a sitter in your account you must ensure that you and your duals are active at least as much time as you aren't. Just become active as much as your sitter does and it will be okay.

    Overall, for situations where you won’t be able to be active in your account, we recommend you to continue to use the Vacation feature.

    These changes will go live for all game worlds including the ones that are currently running.
