FAQ wrote:15. Can I let another player take a turn for me when I am away from the game?
You can, with the stipulation that the account babysitter is not your opponent in any current game. It is common courtesy to announce in game chat that another player will take your turn(s) during your absence. Account babysitters should not start or join new games, with the exception of tournament games.

Only if you're physically unable to take your turn in 24 hours.
sfhbballnut wrote:I meant in a babysitting situation, with what I said earlier, bviously you can't take turns for anybody, especialy not your partner if they can take ther turns. As you're saying there's no special advantage to taking you're partners turns for them in the case that they cannot take their turns so it should be ok. Does it solve the problem if we put in the FAQ "Yes you can babysit the account of somone who is on you're team in a team game if they are incapable of taking their turns on a given day so long as you are not their opponent in any game" or is their still a hole their?

Well we can look to see if he's playing his other games. And we can also tell who's accessing the account when.

The challenge of a team game is the coordination and communication. If one player is playing both accounts, there is no coordination or communication necessary, giving that team an unfair advantage especially in freestyle where time is of the essence.
wicked wrote:Simor, if we're playing a freestyle team game, and I can only log in at certain times, by letting you play for me, we've now gained an advantage since now my turn can be taken at any time, not just when I can log on. Sorry, but there is an advantage to having one person playing both accounts, and it gets into cheating at that point with one person controlling multiple accounts.
