Can you please explain what the unlimited setting has to do with anything described above?


I think my question might have been missed, as it hasn't been addressed yet.

Does this mean that players are not allowed to sit for each other in games with the unlimited fort setting?

If so, I think it's only fair and reasonable to include any other setting at which a more skilled player can outplay a less skilled player: escalating spoils, adjacent forts, foggy games, etc. Late game escalating turns require as much skill as early game unlimited fort turns - the difference is that far fewer clans and players have focused on developing their unlimited fort game strategies.

i have phone numbers and e mails of some of my clan mates, and i had them before i have join CC. i am RL friend with many of them too, so if i want to do this, i will, and there is no rule that will stop me from doing it.

and if some of the rules are going to be applied based on trust(as you mentioned), then why having rules at all?!


+1. all this is ridiculous.

As I said, this is about clan A vs clan B. If you make such rules for the CC4 or whatever tournament it's normal so everyone is under the same rules. But in a war between 2 clans, if both teams agree on this kind of terms I don't see how it's external people's fucking problem. All terms should be agreed between 2 clans beforehand, the real cheating is if someone does not do what he agreed on.

Anyway, there is no way you can stop people from the same clan to know what is going on behind fog and to discuss opinions on what to do in fog or no fog games. In many clans the members don't know each other only by game chat or private forum. Lol, we even have a rl couple in our clan that lives together. Should it be prohibited to be in the same clan as your girfriend/boyfriend?

but we all do this! all top clans are doing this! and its not going to stop. and what is the worse thing, me logging into someones acc and looking at map, or someone taking snap posting at internal forum and asking for advice?!

i am on this site because of clans and clan wars. i dont care about points, tournaments, titles, medals, etc, etc... i like to play a game or two for fun, but the only games that really interest me are clan games. and i want to be able to see what is going on in clan games im not in, and you are telling me its abuse of rules? just to look at the game?! thats beyond stupid.


The issue is logging in to someone elses account for something other than taking a turn.

If they want to take a SS and post it in the forum, no one is telling you not to do that (from what I understand)

You are not entitled to see what is going on under the fog of games you are not involved in, clan or otherwise.

If you want to discuss turns over a phone, share a screen in a house, pop around to your friend's house, post a screen shot in a forum, then clearly we aren't here to police that and you can do as you wish. Some people might not agree that it's right (I'm not one of them) but of course there's nothing to stop you doing this.

This rule is specifically around logging into someone else's account.

If all the top clans are doing it then they certainly won't be in future unless they want to risk being busted.

Play your own games and take your own turns. If you can't do that you shouldn't be in a clan war and/or tournament.

Ask your partners or get a screen shot if you want to know how the games going. Simple.

freakns and betiko: Team CC has made it very clear that you should not have someone else's permanent password and thus you should already have not been doing what you are arguing for. This is not new and is not changing with these rules. That has been a site rule for awhile now. As has been mentioned, there are perfectly legal workarounds that require a bit more effort on the part of the actual players in the game (as it should be).

Personally, I don't see what the big deal is here. Most clans I have interacted with have all followed these rules already, with the possible exception of the new 1-hour rule. It really comes down to one thing - only you should be taking your turns.

My one issue is that this rule:

Nicky15 wrote:2, Emergency cover may only be given if the person really is in danger of missing a turn. Therefore a turn can only be covered if there is an hour or less left on the clock. But steps must be taken to contact the player before hand.


contradicts this rule:

Nicky15 wrote:5, You must also not give permission for anyone to wander in and out of your account at their will. Take care of your account. What happens with it is your responsibility.


How are we expected to cover a clanmate's turn in emergency situations (following the 1-hour rule) if we do not know their password ahead of time?

Also, it seems to me that players are taking the word "vacation" too literally. I believe that "vacation" is a stand-in word for "excusable absence from the site for a foreseeable period of time".

and now you are going to tell me that noone, especially in clan world, is not having anyone permanent password? we can talk all day how this is site rule, but reality is different. and if you ban/block all the accounts that have permanent sitter a lot of premium accounts will be deleted. you know it, i know it, and CC owner knows it. so yeah, it is site rule which noone cares about...

While that may or may not be true it's always been against the rules to be jumping on those accounts you sit to be looking at any games behind fog etc. for any purpose besides actually sitting a turn.

Good thing the CD's can't hand out warnings for people...lots of admissions of systematically breaking site rules in this thread over long periods of time by very reputable people.

I think that something like this should have been considered as well, instead of that person having to stay on for 8 hours waiting for each individual game getting down to an hour, being able to cover the expected delay or problem time frame until you expect to be able to get back on.


As of right now the 1 hour rule will stand. If we see this is causing too many problems it can be relooked at. In response to Missionary, do not put yourself in a situation where that comes up. Plan ahead of time. Do not rely on your teammates to cover for you, but rather take the turns yourself. Sure life happens but as it stands in the case as you described your clan mates will have to wait till the last hour to take those turns. How do we as CD's know you will be out till time X? That opens up room for people to lie.


So if I am not breaking any rules on CC, why should I have to abide by the clan areas individual rules? This came up because there was a question of honor about sitting techniques of another player/s. Never once have I or any of my clan members attempted to abuse this system. Why should the rest of us have to follow a makeshift rule, just because someone else did? I'm not going to run my life around CC. I have lots of things to do sometimes, I can't always plan my time better for a game. Sorry, I am not breaking any rules, so I will continue with what works best for me and the people I play with. I don't think any of you have the right to tell any of us how to manage our own time. If rules are being broken, deal with the individuals, don't place restrictions on the rest of us who do not abuse the system. I am not flaming anyone, I am just expressing myself.
