Multiple avatars?

I recall someone telling me there has been a thread where quote by MA was made or quoted saying secondary avatars are officially allowed.

Can anyone confirm this, or point me to the thread in question?

Thanks.

We'd have run out of ME a long time ago if they weren't allowed and that fact was enforced lol.

Most newbies that join either can't be arsed with sweating and desposit, or they leave because sweating is too damned boring.

AFAIK one cannot have 2 accounts.
Try to create a 2nd account and you will see you cannot.
Fakes accounts , created under false informations are another thing.
Also the use of other player's avatar, is a totally another thing.
Would be better to first define the terms, before to discuss a matter.

Edit : you may not have 2 active accounts same time, but you can ask 1 account to be locked and then you can create a new account .
A possible reason for one to do so, might be the willing to create another type of avatar , like M instead of F.

Rubbish, all you need is a different e-mail address. No false information is necessary.

For sweat, for disciple, for auction, for scamming, for to spy the oilrig, for to spy a society , for to test some aspects of the system , like skills or loot,for storage, and so on.

But you know what, multiple Avatars are only good if you have more than one computer.
I mean I have yet to find a way to run 2 instances of EU on the same computer.

1-my question was about something else, and i wait an answer from Wanda.
2-i dont bet my account security on exploiting the system's weakeness or errors .
3-i know an avatar got banned because the player used 40 accounts --during the time--for sweat. MA might be wrong sometimes, from our point of view, but MA have the power to do w/e they want IF they consider your activity to be harmfull.

MA never said anything on a Forum. Mr. Marco did, wich is PR , not MA's statement.
MA's statements can be found only in the EULA and CoU.And from support section ofc.

I apologize for i insist, im slow-minded and my english sux.
Are you saying that you logged -in EU 2 avatars, no matter the avatar's names and login and passwords, but those 2 different avatars have the same informations in theyr accounts ?
Like 2 different players , but each of them have the exact same name and birthdate and address and all informations required when create the account ?

The only and only thing that differentiate the 2 accounts are only the e-mail addresses ?

+ rep , for an extremelly clear answer.

Many times the EULA might seem to be just a " mumbo-jumbo " , and for sure many times even the support cannot give a straigth answer to a direct question .

Ofc, only IF what you post is the truth.
But i will ask MA's support in the matter and i will post here the answer.

Wow. This thread grew fast.

I would like to state I do not own any secondary avatars. My ex made an avater from my computer using her information and her credit card. That seems to be allowed, as I have not been banned so far.

However, I know of plenty people who _DO_ hold secondary avatars. From the replies stated above (including the links), I pretty much get the following:

If you:

- submit TRUE information
- pick a unique playername
- register a unique e-mail address
- abide to the PE rules as stated in the EULA

you are allowed to play PE, regardless if your IP and/or information has been submitted before, but while keping in mind the rules as stated above.

Marco, can you confirm this, please?

since my english sux somewhat,im not sure wether this is relevant or not,but i asked support about having two avatars some time ago,and this was the answer they gave me:

Hi,
No, you are not allowed to have more than one active avatar. Your avatar is supposed to be a virtual representation of yourself.
Regards,
PE Support

First of all, i dont say you're lieing. Then, pls dont tell me about reasons , because i dont know even my own reasons many times .

And you can see a piece of answer from support.

And actually any posts on a forum are totally irrelevant , same about the support answers.

Different players might get different answers and MA is free to alowe you to have 2 accounts but forbide me to do the same.
So what ?! This is not the single issue where things already happends before.

Works on mine.
It's not really possible to play with 2 instances running but it's useful for trading etc. if you have more than one player in the family and only 1 PC.

Well, seems that you can by allowance upon signup as stated, but, its been mentioned many times by MA that it isnt. So I would say 2nd avatars while possible and done place a risk still. If one day the investors call for an audit of true subscription amounts, it could lead to a nasty issue for alot of people.

Ultimately its up to MA do decide if its ok or not, the eula and policy is no, so that if any issues arise, then they can do as they feel is necessary. I personally dont have a 2nd, because if for some reason I do withdrawl someday, I dont want to give MA any reason to prevent it. Having a 2nd account, is a violation that they could legally use if they felt necessary, for whatever reason.

While MA could say its ok, the eula overrides any information they give otherwise. Its like going to the dealership for a car, and the sales guy says sure well knock 10k off, you sign the contract that says nothing is taken off, and what he said doesnt matter one bit.

Please post here exactly where this is explicitly stated.
