I mean people talk about account sitting like it's doping at the Olympics.

how about this rule: take it easy. :)


I agree this is absurd. In all the years I've been on the site and seen 3 or 4 rounds baby sat by 1 teammate covering the other 2 guys turns I've never seen it as a deal where we need some kind of enforcement. Usually someone mentions in chat what is going on that a 3v3 is more like a 1v3 but then the situation is explained and all is well. But really, I agree with above dont let a few retardedly bad apples ruin it for everyone else. We have to deal with all the stupid people in life making life suck more every year, we do not need the politics on this site because a small minority have a stick up their butt about clanmates covering turns.

ok let me get some quotes.

all these are quotes from what king a has said..
Let me remind that Account sitting is only for situations where the player is in danger of missing his turn. It is not for the purpose of safeguarding someone's games, 24 hours/day for as long as you want, nor is it for people who will intentionally not take their turns so that their account sitter or clan mate can take the turn for them. It is not a 24/7 responsibility of anyone to look after the games of their friends or clan mates as this can be seen as account sharing where more than one person is already freely logging in to one account whenever these people want to. You can only take this too far.


Account sitting is for a definite period of time and NOT for an indefinite period. You can't assign an account sitter to account sit for you for as long as his blood is running into his veins. Then you can now sleep soundly whenever or do other stuff because you know he is going to save you from missing a turn. If you are capable of taking your turn, then take it. Do not make someone be responsible for your own account or lean too much for his advise.


this is the main thing maybe i was wrong about the password sharing thing but he does highlight it must be for a defined period. not just when someone goes awol...

Eddie - Those were the quotes I was using that lead me to be under the assumption that you should not share a permanent password. But it appears as that has been clarified in other threads (including this one) since those original posts by KA was made. The idea seems to be that you can have someone's password, but you can only log into that account when that person is either on vacation or within an hour of missing a turn. Seems fair to me and I'm glad we finally got some sort of official response.

If we have sticks up our butts it's in the power of cc to remove them. We didn't put them there in the first place, others did. While they are at it, why don't they take those sticks, once removed, and smack the rule benders over the head with them.

ok ty bones,

just hope they are really going to take time zones into account when people are sitting don't really bother aka that much as we have 3 players in all different time zones but i can still see it hard to make sure only 1 hour on the clock...
and i am the same i am really glad they have introduced the rules.

the only thing that does concern me is that some of the sitting rules for clan wars could be seen as a breach of site rules and by the op it says it will be dealt with by clan moderators,i would like to see king achilles or c and a team member come in and say they are going to agree to all of these rules being dealt with by a clan mod and not a c and a mod. or any cheating in clan wars not being seen as site cheating but seen as clan mod territory. including forum bans for posts in war threads etc they will not join the esculating ban for other areas of the site.

thats the last from me on this matter let the fun begin :twisted:

Not sure what you mean. The clan rules seem to be in line with the site rules (except for Rule #1 which is not a big deal), just put more clearly.

Funky, your comment exemplifies why this entire ruling is overkill.

Having to "prove there wasn't abuse," because you take one turn for someone who, for whatever reason, couldn't play that day.

Maybe it's not "vacation," maybe it's "working 15 hours a day this weekend, and kid has a ballgame I have to attend, so won't have time to log in, can you watch my games?"

How is any of this abuse of the "old system?" But under the new system this could be considered abuse, especially if I took the turn at my convenience which may mean 7 hours before the turn ends because I'm going to bed and maybe me being tired when I finished my turns and went to check my clanmate's turns is why I forgot to type stahr in one of the games. So now this could be abuse? It's overkill and just plain stupid.

If there was a systematic habit of this, then sure, I could agree that that's abuse, but the new "official clan sitting rules" aren't about finding a systematic habits of watching other players turns, which is found by looking at ip's, these official rules go way beyond that into, as I said, overkill and stupidity.

The 1 hour rule is ridiculous. Having to get scheduled permission to be awol for a day or so is ridiculous.

There's a big difference between someone systematically playing the game for another player, and someone being casual about letting another player take the odd turn for them because today was a rough work/home/electricity/internet connection day, on what is supposed to be a casual game site.

These rules are more strict about being absent and how to be absent for a turn, than many folks' workplaces are for having to go do something unplanned/unscheduled at the last minute so needing someone to cover part of their workshift.

It's overkill.

yep i am not wording it very well am i.

ok 2 recent cases cof, josko, both ended up in a ban/warning. this is on the escalating scale of site punishments. but if we were to follow these new clan rules they would not be punishable by c and a moderators. instead they would be dealt with by the clan moderation team who will issue clan war bans etc.

but we have not seen a post from king achilles to confirm this will be followed. example if a case like the previous c and a cases are brought forward will they be passed over to the clan mod teams to be dealt with on a clan war escalating punishment and can we get some confirmation that this will happen.

these rules are not for casual games, they are for competitive clan games.

Nothing is stopping you from simply missing turns if you can't play them yourself. If you're that casual on a site that's just for fun (not judging you, most of G1 feels this way) then you shouldn't care about a rare missed turn.

I think I can speak for C&A. If a site rule is broken and it is brought to our attention it will NOT BE IGNORED. These new clan rules only pertain to account sitting.

Look, man, I'm on your side really. You are obviously not the sort of person who these rules were meant to moderate but that doesn't change the fact that those people are out there. It's not overkill if people are abusing the system. Since we don't know for certain just how many people are abusing it(we know at least some are, even this thread proves it), we have to make a rule that covers everyone, even the ones who don't bend the rules. If the concept of a few rotten apples spoiling it for everyone is new to you, I'm sorry but it's a fact of life.

Evil Semp, you beat me to it. I think there's a lot of confusion over the mechanics of what is happening here. Clans are a side benefit of CC that CC has elevated to a certain status, just like Tournaments are. There are site-wide rules in place that govern EVERYTHING including Clans and Tournaments, but there are also specific rules in place that govern only Tournaments or only Clans. We don't need administrators or multi-hunters to give credence to the rules that are decided by the leaders of the Clan world. What they say pretty much goes as long as it's not too crazy or violating site rules.

I understand people being concerned about what the site rules are for account sitting, but those rules aren't changed by any of this stuff going on here. Now that we've ascertained that simply having someone's password is not against site rules nor against clan rules, the whole issue is pretty much irrelevant to the current issue: whether these ADDITIONAL rules governing play in clan games are appropriate.

I still haven't received any response to these ideas. I just want to make sure they're not missed.

First, the 1 hour rule should probably be expanded, but at the very least there need to be exceptions. Exception 1: An emergency in which the sitter has been informed that turns need to be taken should be treated the same as any prearranged absence. Exception 2: Once a player comes within the 1 hour rule and after efforts have been made to contact that player, sitting should be permitted at the minimum levels necessary to ensure no missed turns. If only one player has their password and that player is going to bed, this means they could clear 8 hours or so. Exception 3: After a player has missed a turn, he is considered in a state of emergency and the other exceptions apply. Exception 4: Other exceptions handled on a case-by-case basis, e.g., Goranz' posts about being in a different timezone.

Just thought of this: change "vacation" or whatever it says now to "prearranged absence, e.g., vacation"

I'm not sure how I feel about the fact that I can't play some other turns while I'm away. Sometimes, as a favor to my sitter, I try to clear the easy turns or the turns in games that are already decided to decrease the sitter's gameload. I understand how this could be abused, so I get why the rule is as it is, but I'm not terribly happy about not being able to help my sitter out while he's helping me.

if 2 people are playing the same account at the same time it is Account Sharing. that is against site rules.

you make me think of the anoying kid at school trying to get the teacher's attention being more strict and intolerant than anyone. It's like listening to a broken record. Yes we understood, we can't have any intelligent conversation with you, let's move on.

LOL you even had to to watch your flag change (which I highly doubt happened) but not take your turns?

midturn, do you understand the word. i'm in games and being told they are foeing me because my flag is changing while we are playing.

the Pack were what many of us here hate. 3 or 4 players playing all games themselves or through puppet accounts.

You are so full of crap greenoaks! You couldnt keep all your games current, you would start speeders at night before you would even take your regular turns. You regularly had 100 + games going. If you want to lie then bring it in another fashion! We at the PACK are not perfect but those are straight up lies! We all play this game and are good at it! If only 3-4 of us were playing puppet accounts then it must only be a couple of us now that a few of our key players arent playing..... Were doing pretty good against TOFU with only a couple players..... :? Just caused you got booted (due too not taking your turns) doesnt mean you have to lie about us. Have a good day sir!

Not sure what you mean. The clan rules seem to be in line with the site rules (except for Rule #1 which is not a big deal), just put more clearly.


yep i am not wording it very well am i.

ok 2 recent cases cof, josko, both ended up in a ban/warning. this is on the escalating scale of site punishments. but if we were to follow these new clan rules they would not be punishable by c and a moderators. instead they would be dealt with by the clan moderation team who will issue clan war bans etc.

but we have not seen a post from king achilles to confirm this will be followed. example if a case like the previous c and a cases are brought forward will they be passed over to the clan mod teams to be dealt with on a clan war escalating punishment and can we get some confirmation that this will happen.


eddie

I think I can speak for C&A. If a site rule is broken and it is brought to our attention it will NOT BE IGNORED. These new clan rules only pertain to account sitting.


thanks evil so as it stands if you break site sitting rules in clan games you will receive depending on the level of major infraction,

1) a 1 month site ban
2)Penalties may include loss of privileges, loss of medals, forfeiture of games, and any other punishment the CD Team deems appropriate.

so there will be a double punishment for one breach all because of the following statement
Until we get some sort of sitting feature,


we have been getting told for 2 years now there is a sitting feature going to be added. and i am all for the new clan rules but don't like the fact there is going to be punishments from 2 departments for breaching of the rules which your statement is saying evil. like many have said some sitting is on borderline of breaking site rules a tiny little thing can push it over the line..

I understand how this could be abused, so I get why the rule is as it is, but I'm not terribly happy about not being able to help my sitter out while he's helping me.

if 2 people are playing the same account at the same time it is Account Sharing. that is against site rules.


This wasn't at the same time. It was that I was on vacation and had a regular sitter. When I could squeeze some turns in, I would go online and take some. Or I would take the turns from my phone that I could, but my phone isn't fantastic, so it's basically impossible to take turns on large, complex maps on it. As far as I know, we never were on at the same time. But it is possible that happened. My understanding of the sitting rules is that they generally prohibit you from gaining a tactical advantage. And that wasn't what would have happened.

If that's abuse then I guess classify me as another person who inadvertently admitted to sitting abuse in this thread. Maybe Icepack can file a C&A report against me :D

lol don't worry they are writting down all names! I was on holiday for10 days about a month ago. I didn't get signed up for 2 batches of our clan war because I knew I wouldn't be there, nevertheless I still had a few games going on and asked for a clanmate to sit my account (tried to lower the game count as much as possible for my sitter) but occasionally I had wifi in some hotels so I did log in on cc from my phone because I was involved in mafia games in the forum and needed to post (obviously this couldn't be done by my sitter), also because I wanted to check how my cc games were doing. I guess that for mister greenoaks that is a severe abuse to dare log onto my own account while I had an official sitter.

One thing I would like clarification on if possible is whether there is a time limit on the duration of planned account sits, or any limit on the number of different people allowed to sit an individual account during any single planned sitting period?

Note this isnt about emergency sits, this question is with regards to planned account sits known about in advance.

i think that is already covered mate.. if it is planned there is no time limit i would just be careful on the day the player is due to return don't play any shots he can take and if he does not return on his due date the 1 hour rule comes into force. as for amount of players having the password there is no rule just do not be the one giving his password out to another player.

also from what I understood there should be only 1 sitter covering for all the turns. I'm not sure if the sitter is not in one of the team games if it's acceptable that one of the teammates plays it or not, but I guess it would not be permitted (pretty shitty rule for the sitter that probably doesn't have that much time to spend everyday taking a friend's turns..)
