Nobody should be doing this. You should only go on another's account to cover a turn they might miss. It is NOT OK for a clan leader to be checking out games this way whether or not they offer advice. That is nothing to do with the new clan rules, that is the site rule.

Well this is bullcrap in my opinion. a clan is a team and I don't see how it would be cheating that other clan members know what is happening behind the fog in games they are not in. Or is it even prohibited to talk between clan members not in a game of how a fog game is going?
And totally agree with LMS. 48H turns, are you serious? so in a 4 player game when someone misses (because you are still aloud to take the turn before the last hour in case of absence) how many month should every game last? let's make it hive trench no spoils to add some fun!

I still need to read the rules more thoroughly (and may have more comments), but the first thing that comes to mind is that only "vacation" and "emergencies" are listed. There are other legitimate situations that need to be covered, such as business trips and moving to a new residence. I would characterize these situations as emergencies (like a computer failure), and they're not vacation either.

Business trips and moving house would definitely fall into a valid "vacation" situation. Any reasonable legitimate situation is a perfectly valid reason to have a sitter.

Yes I agree that a clan is a team. However, teams are made up of individuals and each should play their own game. Otherwise why not have clans of 4 people. If you don't like the way a certain member plays then maybe he should not be in your clan. If a game is fog those settings were made for a reason, so the other team and others not playing in the game can not see the position of the other team.

Maybe Dwight can ask Kobe to shoot his free throws, since their on the same team.

Yeah I agree and would love to hear a CD opinion. As clan leader I ask my member how games are going or get sent a screen shot. I've NEVER thought logging in to check game statuses was EVER an acceptable practise.

I guess what it comes down to as that in many clans people ask their better players to look at the games and ask for strategies.

the question is, is this allowed? and if not can it be stopped?

It seems pretty clear to me that this wasn't clear at all before ! However rule 5 should leave no doubt that this is not an acceptable practice from here on in.

5. You must not be in another persons account for any reason, other than to cover turns while that person is on vacation


Abuse of this would potentially spotted by the hunters.

Of course players will ask clan mates for advice on a map and I guess some people might post up screen shots on their internal forum but logging into someone else's account for the purposes of helping with that turn is not acceptable.

But asking for advice on a game is. I don't have a problem either way, but just want it to be clear.

why so? i have been doing this since i have joined site. i like to know what is going on, and i leave without making any move or comment. how is this different from omiljeni, finsfleet and me sitting at omiljenis home and watching the map together in half time of football game? my point is, if this is forbidden, how will you make sure i dont see map just looking at it from omiljeni/fins computer? and the three of us do see each other every sunday to watch football, so if we are doing that, how can i be sure you arent doing the same thing with someone from your clan?

also, 1 hour rule is stupid beyond reason. our whole clan(with exception of milen83 who lives between new york and belgrade) live in same time zone. most of our moves start ticking during night(you living in England may be well aware of this). so lets say someone from my clan gets an emergency and his move is due to expire in 4AM CET(which is quite often). if we are strict to 1hour rule, someone need to be awake in 3AM to take a move? how stupid is that?

anyhow, i will leave the rest of my concerns for CD and friends, because these rules are not going to help anyone, they will more likely create additional confusion.

I guess my point is if its ok to get strategies from other members by other means, why does it really matter if someone logs onto your account or even takes the turns. A player could just sit there and tell the other player exactly what to do. What is the difference?

Being on another player's account for ANY reasons other than taking turns when they are in danger of missing a turn, or posting to necessary Tournament or Clan related public forum topics, is not allowed. Abuse of this privilege can be considered account sharing and could result in a Bust for both accounts.

and how do you plan to stop me from doing this(i havent done this just to be clear)?

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?!

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.

I refer you back to the previous point from BGtheBrain which predates all of this.

"Being on another player's account for ANY reasons other than taking turns when they are in danger of missing a turn, or posting to necessary Tournament or Clan related public forum topics, is not allowed. Abuse of this privilege can be considered account sharing and could result in a Bust for both accounts"

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