WA with shared computers

Postby Opressea » Sun Sep 08, 2019 7:11 pm

My brother got me playing this game, and I am really enjoying it so far. However, one of the core aspects of the game, and especially the region he invited me to, is heavily centered on the WA. The problem, is that my family isn't all that wealthy, and as such can't afford to have my brother and I each having our own devices. Is there anything I can do to join the WA, or is it just a lost cause, which I should wait to embark on until I get my own phone/laptop?

Each of you could resign from the WA whenever you're done playing. That way you two are never in the WA at the same time. It's very inconvenient, to be sure, and perhaps impractical for you- but there it is. As the FAQ says:
I only have one WA nation but my brother has one and he sometimes uses this computer.

Unfortunately that's asking for trouble. We try to identify WA cheats accurately, but we have no way of telling exactly whose fingers are touching the keyboard at any given time. So unfortunately if you don't want to run the risk of being ejected from the WA (or worse), you shouldn't let anyone else operate WA nations from your computer, either.

Sharing a network or IP address is usually fine. The game does not rely on any single method of identifying WA cheats, but combines data from many different methods to calculate the likelihood that multiple WA nations are operated by the same person.

Romans 1:18-2:29, Ephesians 2:1-10
But God’s angry displeasure erupts as acts of human mistrust and wrongdoing and lying accumulate, as people try to put a shroud over truth. But the basic reality of God is plain enough. Open your eyes and there it is! | Those people are on a dark spiral downward. But if you think that leaves you on the high ground where you can point your finger at others, think again. Every time you criticize someone, you condemn yourself. | It’s a wonder God didn’t lose His temper and do away with the whole lot of us. Instead, immense in mercy and with an incredible love, He embraced us. He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ. He did all this on His own, with no help from us!
