3 accounts, 1 person, 3 personalities.....
« on: July 19, 2010, 09:36:27 PM »
I have very good reason, and evidence, to believe that there is a player among us that is using and playing multiple accounts in game, as well as here on the forums.

Normally, I'd just send a ticket off to Jason and wash my hands clean of the whole situation, normally.

This situation is slightly different.

As it turns out, there is a coincidental link between the following accounts on the forums.

Callum Roberts
Former Empire Guy
Akkarin.

IP's are IP's , sometimes they are not enough. Alright, granted, keep it into consideration.

Recently, a player decided to apply to TopGun moments after creation. The player, without hesitation, applied directly to TopGun. Citing that he wasn't "new" to the game, but gave us no reason as to why he had applied to us directly, and so swiftly. Of course, this aroused some suspicion amongst myself and a few other officers, but I let this one slide, given the name and the former leader of TopGun being his prodigy. After a couple more suspicious posts, and fishy comments, my interest was piqued. This guy was claiming to be the real Akkarin, but something wasn't right still.

Then I read this thread, and I'd like you to read it as well.

viewtopic.php?f=9&t=9129

Akkarin then gets a message from either Former Empire Guy, or one of his 6 other members (he doesn't elaborate who)
Quote
Former Empire guy. is the leader of the Federation of Aggressive Planets alliance which has 7 members. A guy from this alliance messaged me the following
To: Akkarin.
Hi i understand that the alliance your in is a training alliance and would like if you could post this request on your Message boards. I'm looking for recruits ranked below 40k we are an aggressive alliance who doesn't like NAPS and although we are not in any wars our leader has sent out 46 War requests most of these are small alliances and 1 average sized 20 member one Fellowship and the larger alliance Blades of RONIN.

Weird, that a player who just started the game, who so quickly targeted TopGun for recruitment, would get a message sent to him by Former Empire Guy's alliance trying to recruit players from Top Gun, and asked to post it on the message board.

The same Empire Guy, formerly of UFP (honestly, no former Empire player with self respect would join UFP) who said on these forums he had a mole inside of TopGun, to which I told him we do not have moles in this alliance that aren't intentionally let in, and called his bluff to prove it. He shut up and didn't post again.

Naturally, at this point, I'm pretty convinced that Former Empire Guy and Akkarin. are the same person.

Then a mistake is made.

When signing up to our external website, the player Akkarin. used the following email.

callumroberts01@hotmail.com

As it turns out, with a slight investigation, all three of the forum accounts share a common link with IP checks.


Before I hand this one off to BFG and let them get involved in game, I'd like to hear  Callum's side Or shall I say, "sides" of this situation.

I remember commenting on the weirdness of the Akkarin message in that thread, but I didn't have the info you have from your alliance. I think there could be a plausible explanation, but it's definitely suspicious.

The second Akkarin is a phony for sure, since he made a forum account called "Akkarin." , when the real Akkarin already has "Akkarin" registered here.

Let's add some more details and suspense, because it is indeed, fishy.

All three forum accounts are linked to one another via IP

Kevin from UFP said a while ago, in reference to having a mole inside of his alliance, that he'd have something "Surprising" happen soon.

Later, Former Empire Guy, who supported UFP pretty heavily, goes and leaves and creates Federation of Aggressive Planets or whatever.

Shinzon of Remus, leader of Terror; UFP's training alliance, issues a warning to his members to leave TopGun alone within the last week or so.

Akkarin. joins TopGun a day after LS formally retires from the game.

Akkarin. claims to be Akkarin, former leader of Empire, and "father" to alliances like TopGun and NOB, LS's former leader.

Then the message from Former Empire Guy's alliance, sent to Akkarin. days from his creation and admittance into TopGun.

Then the thread I quoted in my original post.

Then here.

Indeed, that's what I said.

More interesting bits. Callum roberts hasn't posted on the forums in a week.

Callum Roberts belongs to NOB, who has a NAP with TopGun.

Who was presumably, formerly in Empire, lead by the former Akkarin.

The real Akkarin has retired and doesnt want anything to do with this game, ie, he will never return.

Which is what PT had pointed out. As well as LS had told me many times, since he was a student of Akkarin.

Can anyone confirm/deny that callum was ever in Empire or one of the offshoots of empire before the creation of NOB and then TopGun?

Boelcke's list of tactics; Otherwise known as Dicta Boelcke:
1. Try to secure the upper hand before attacking. If possible, keep the sun behind you
2. Always continue with an attack you have begun
3. Open fire only at close range, and then only when the opponent is squarely in your sights
4. You should always try to keep your eye on your opponent, and never let yourself be deceived by ruses
5. In any type of attack, it is essential to assail your opponent from behind
6. If your opponent dives on you, do not try to get around his attack, but fly to meet it
7. When over the enemy's lines, always remember your own line of retreat
8. Tip for Squadrons: In principle, it is better to attack in groups of four or six. Avoid two aircraft attacking the same opponent.

this use to happen all the time on a dance music messageboard I use to visit.  One guy would make a new song track, post it for everyone to listen to and critique then all of a sudden, posters with like a 1 or  2 post history would pop up saying how awesome the track was and if they could get a copy.

Mods would do a IP check then bust them out for everyone to laugh at :lol:  :lol:

I don't believe so.

I think it's perfectly within the rules and regulations as long as you don't violate the forum rules, on yourself. Of course, this is in the case where you aren't using one account per personality, but I digress.
