Account sitting is forbidden in Conquer Cup games
What's the deal with that?
The Cup can take a while to fill up, and each game/round can take weeks.
So if I've planned to go away for a weekend more than a month from now, I might as well not bother joining, right? Try missing a turn in an escalating game when the card cashes are high.
We all know the merits of having an account sitter, and when they might be necessary.
The only two and a half concerns I can imagine with account sitting in the Conquer Cup games are as follows:
A] Having a sitter who is an inordinately better player
B] Potential for abuse when account sitting as an opposing player in a game your friend is in
Bii] Taking over an account Blitzaholic/jobiwan style in order to have a greater chance at winning the iPad or whatever
A] I don't think this is a legitimate problem, as any strong player could hypothetically dictate instructions to a succumbing player without being in the game in question
B] This is but an example of where a site-integrated sitting tool would solve the problem - or potential for problem
