I consider altists stupid. Starting or playing the same game twice is rather retarded tendency. I have studied alts user and have a biggest intel of whose alts is whose. I find that the higher the league is in the ranking the higher the amount of alts. I find that pro KT league are not ashamed of their alts, and even have a leagues full of their alts. Destiny-pro leagues have the biggest alts, and they alts are everywhere and captains all over the map, so is Anarchy alts, which they limit to their enemies


I myself have no alt.

Unfortunately alts are currently a major part of the game.  A lot of people see it as "Why build tens of thousands of spies when you can just slip an alt into an enemy league and see all their beacons for free?"  I wouldn't call it stupid, mathematically it makes perfect sense (if you don't mind violating the game rules and risking getting banned, although that risk seems to be very low).

I think the spying thing is 100% part of the game.

It's smart gameplay. As a league captain who hunts spies, I know It's not that easy to make a spy look like a convincing real member. It takes a of time and effort to be successful.

I am always going to be in favour of gameplay that enables the hard working and smart to get an edge. It's a strategy game after all.

Dean / Dark Reaper, being a double agent and making it to marshal of KoC, removing King Arthur as leader of KoC main, stirring things up and being a large part of a load of defections to KT (this was all 2 years ago btw before anyone gets excited). I see that as amazing gamplay. Both in the skill it took to execute but also in the actual value and content it brings to the game for that person and all the rest of us.

Spying is part of war - intelligence if often as big a part of winning as anything that happens on the actual battlefield.

Everyone has a right to an opinion. No one has a right to their opinion being respected by other if it can't be backed up with rational and logic explanation

I used to keep a log of all the players who quit. theyd turn over their accounts and passwords. 


clearly i dont have the time to use them, but i have access to 40ish accounts. 


years ago in an older game, now defunct, i would buy and trade accounts.   The dead account market would pay for my game spending.   it was a nice symbiosis.

Yes, it's interesting question, Djmoody. To tell the truth, I don't have such numbers or proportions :)


And, if it's interesting for you (), I 100% agree with your statement about spying too. I believe that many great victories were held thanks to such a strategy. Even I was such a spy

Plarium seeding spies into leagues of "rebelious" players to keep an eye on them. So when they start overstep in the league chat  they can "silence" them, lol.. j/k...

I'm thinking that the alt to single castle player is probably 75% ratio. I know that a lot of people have quit and handed off login to team mates or friends. Others are running multiple alts to generate resources or troops to support others in an attempt to equalize the coiner advantage. Sad when you have to do that, but it's become a fact of life. 


I don't have time for alts, but if those who do are willing to meet all the league requirements and keep them active, I don't have a problem with them.  How do you tell anyway since it's so easy to teleport, change name and castle name, and you're instantly a new person.
I think, therefore I game.
