This is a tournament. Do you want to play a tournament? Play the qualifying server. Clear rules. Also, you won't play the Davis Cup final just because you want to try it. The mistake is that the invitation is not tied to email
Lol this comparison is ridiculous. The notion of tournament final is not necessary tied to qualification. There is the regular qualification and way to play final directly and that's the reason while wild cards were created because they understood the need of of offering opportunity to people that did not play qual to join ( sounds logical to me but if some are abusing it's them but if they don't have wild cards they will qualify more accounts and their issue is solved lol). We are not doing a sport, we are playing a game but we will agree to disagree as we are not looking things to the same angle. My point work better for travian and players and alliances that wants to try without having to wait a year. We are playing a game, not competing our lives.
For what you are saying about tying code to email lol. Let me answer this by some questions. What if the email no longer work (hacked, lost etc..)? What if the player just made a mistake on the email and want to use another one? Travian doesn't have time to be treating those little issues so it's irrelevant in my opinion.
MB: there is too many hypocrites as 90% are doing multi accounts and some criticize multi account but have some nice scripts.
