Are these farming multi account?
« on: January 20, 2011, 05:06:06 PM »
There is in a galaxy far away a high ranked player with 8 colonies...
Nearby him there are two other players (ranked 700s) with another 8 colonies...
All are located in 2 systems...
They are all belonging to 3 different alliances
They are also so far that for almost all the players is impossible to send a probe there...however they are not to far from me.
I probed the two other players...and this are they techs

Player 1 ranked 700s
TECHS:
* Laser Tech: 2
* Armor Tech: 0
* Weapons Tech: 0
* Shield Tech: 0
* Particle Tech: 0
* Jet Drive: 4
* A.I. Tech: 3
* Energy Tech: 2
* Espionage Tech: 0
* Pulse Drive: 3
* Plasma Tech: 0
* FTL Tech: 0
* Expedition Tech: 0
* Warp Drive: 0
* Advanced Research Communication Network: 0

Player 2 ranked 700s
TECHS:
* Laser Tech: 2
* Armor Tech: 0
* Weapons Tech: 0
* Shield Tech: 0
* Particle Tech: 0
* Jet Drive: 5
* A.I. Tech: 4
* Energy Tech: 2
* Espionage Tech: 0
* Pulse Drive: 3
* Plasma Tech: 0
* FTL Tech: 0
* Expedition Tech: 0
* Warp Drive: 0
* Advanced Research Communication Network: 0

What is your opinion? I will not disclose the name of the high ranked player, yet

:evil: Probably... When I get online later I can post an ESP report of an account that's been active for months and has never gained rank and for all intents and purposes is nothing but a farm... it has no defenses, no ships... Yet the account is still considered active so that means that at least every 7 days someone is logging onto it...

I'm not going to say they aren't multi accounts, but I will say there is FAR too little information here to make a solid judgement. I will also say that it is amazing that people immediately jump to the conclusion that things like this are multi accounts. My first impression when I read the post was simply that they simply moved out away from everyone else so they could build up in peace.

I would agree, however why 3 players of three different alliances? And why only one high ranked? They did not end up there by pure coincidence...

Could be as simple as them being friends in real life, or from another uni. As for all of the planets being named colony, I have 5 planets in original named colony and 3 in extreme named colony, simply because I get bored with naming them and they don't really have to be named.

If they have sats then they aren't being farmed, not yet.

I'd move a colony up there and start bashing, would hamper future farming.

I completely agree that people can jump to conclusions.  I have personally been accused of cheating about 4-5 times now on SFCO and SFX.  (Simply for coming online 5 minutes after an attack launches on me)

However, this example certainly looks more suspicious.   The most telling factor being that Player 1 and Player 2 are from different alliances and have almost identical techs and buildings.   To use this to an advantage, the higher ranked player would have to attack for the resources, so BFG should be able to determine if the player is cheating.

Right...however one colony of each player has a DF...

So just ticket it and watch BFG say it's not cheating because the person is using multiple IPs.  Other than bashing them or ticketing it, there's nothing more you can do. Tets has been caught cheating before, so it wouldn't surprise me if he's doing it again.

I probed and the colony with a small DF has not sats on it and no defenses...that's the same for both 700s players

Ticket it for suspicious activity, ask them to look for transports to that colony. I've had very little luck with catching farm accounts and the game admin.

Oh yeah, it's called pushing if there are transports like that. They probably won't catch him for multi accounting but pushing is easy to spot.

Ok, with a debris field by one planet of each player it does look a little more suspicious.

The real question is... Does it matter?
Apparently the guy or "guys" are in the middle of nowhere farmvilling it.
I have witnessed peeps multi-accounting and I can assure you it is practically impossible to catch them.
Yeah an occasional pushing violation but they are always back.
Why 3 different allainces? Simple. Intel.
One multi-accounter I knew of sold the intel to other allainces and their enemies.
I am suprised that you can have a 700 rank account with no ships techs or defense.
So I ask again does it matter? And to whom?
Oh, the top 100 players have an issue with this.
I'm not sure why.
It has been shown that even with multi-accounts you cannot keep up with the people spending real cash.
Also these lalyers have no affect on the top 100's gameplay anyways.
Just supplies more food.
Now I might think that the players using loopholes to get ahead in the game.
Or to further their alliance to a point that isn't fair to others who don't use the glitches in the game to their advantage.
And constantly point the finger to keep prying eyes away from them.
Are the cheaters.
But then we are back to.
Does it really matter?
I think not.
