I like to play RT team games 2v2 with a team of my own accounts, I tend to take longer to commit but I didn't meant to waste my opponent's time.

Some people booted me in just seconds after the bootlimit (speedy booters) and I consider it very disrespectful, I think is a bad attitude a think worthy of blacklist, but is it?

Some people instead called me a double faced and insulted me for playing with 2 accounts and wasting their time, https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=13658393 I wonder if I did something wrong there besides discussing the issue with the players.

What's the community view on this matter?

A single player on a team is generally considered acceptable. Heck, many players on ladders team by themselves.

Honestly, i am annoyed at people that take time too. Just have all your orders ready at the beginning and commit whenever you want.

I like to play with myself on a 2v2 or as 2 players on 3v3 RT games mostly 4 min or 5 min boot than play with random players who play bad and use abusive language/ boot right after boot time.

Many players play with ladder with alts and well, there are some good players who got Golden Trophies too. Ultimately, any player with bad attitude is worthy of blacklist and those who boot without warning are the worst during team games.

In your game, you were winning and it is lame for the other team member to boot just because they were losing.

If bootime is 5 minutes, you got 5 minutes to commit, period. If you had a slow teamate he could really take 5 minutes, or when good teams talk about moves it can take a lot of time as well.

Playing the ladder with 2 accounts is ok, open games as well, I like doing it a lot myself, and as for speed goes, I'm able to commit faster than opponent teams a lot (considering how slow people are by nature lol). And when I play open games 1v1, I usually play two games at once so I can play more too.

So yea, you're right there, don't let these people break your fun :)

PS: Maybe you can say on the settings that you're playing two accounts, people won't be able to say they weren't told it!

Here is another annoying scenario:

Two people teaming in a FFA

https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=13658768

How is this even allowed?

Teaming in FFA with 2 accounts is not allowed. If you have proof, report them.

Booting someone right after the boot limit is wrong. They don't do it necessarily because you're slow, but because they want an easy win.

How do you even play from two accounts real time? isn't that too much work and you might miss something.

It is very bad to boot right after timer hits 0.00 and well-some people are just wanting the free points as they're too bad to win through proper play.

Why using two accounts is not allowed in FFA?

2 devices, 2 browser ot logging in out quickly.

No, it's not. By joining a game with, say, 5 minutes boottime you agreed to play within that timelimit. If you exceeed and get booted, it's your fault, not the enemy's who booted you.

Gives you an advantage. Read the ToS.

@Ace because it puts the other players in a disvantageous situation, one player is having doble income at the start and more intel, while the rest don't even know they are teaming. Besides what Cata said, you can play with one browser opening an account in normal window and other in incognito mode.

@Zaza what if the player is slow for some motive (like having a slow device) but he's playing regulary and almost within the boot limit?

@Teamguns You're right about the time, it is the rule. But I wish there were a collective blacklist for speedy booters/rude people, as Joker said they are lame to play with and ruin warlight for others. I'm going to put a warning from now on.

@Cata No, it's not. By joining a game with, say, 5 minutes boottime you agreed to play within that timelimit. If you exceeed and get booted, it's your fault, not the enemy's who booted you.

But in terms of sportmanship, considering there are no ill intentions in exceding the limit, you don't consider it bad?

Thanks for your comments, I was expecting to see more opinions about two accounts team being unfair, I thought it might be more frowned upon.

Imo it's pretty boring to farm free wins. You put 0 open seats prerequisites, played with 2 accounts and all this on an unbalanced map which you quite easily can pick wrong. That's how you end up with boring 95+X% win rates.

Farming is another topic. It also worries me, like the inner advantages of two accs, if I'm bothering other players with it. I wasn't farming for stats, but trying to lvl up and the faster a game started the better, when creating the games it was more easy and I neglected the requisites, but now that you mention I'll put some boot, 1v1% requisites.

Btw I played Ursa just a few times to know it, but actually I enjoy better a Ror or Guiroma, for if you've a teammate Norman. :P

Np playing ON the SAME team with 2 accounts. The most reliable teammate is yourself! :P

I can form an alliance with a friend or a random player in FFA and is that wrong too?

For team games, playing with 2 accounts is same as it gives advantage as many times it is better to play with self on team than have some bad team players.

Well, there is boot time and I do agree that it has to be followed. But, booting at boot time+1 second is just bad and good players don't do it-atleast in my opinion.

Yes, but you can't prevent people from gaining friends in the game. Playing with friends is actually encouraged. While playing with yourself is not. (pun might or might not be intended)

Playing with 2 account in teamgames does not really give you an advantage. First, you could simply dictate your teamplayer the orders instead of doing them yourself. Second, playing with others is better as you could have a better teammate than yourself.

Another disadvantage i haven't heard yet with playing on the same team is that you might overlook something important for picking or miss an obvious move you need to take during that turn. With a teammate he can check your moves and make sure there are no mistakes so you basically have a double check and possibly a great person to discuss game plan with or tell you why something you try to do isn't that great.

Yes-this is why I am thinking how it is possible to play real time with 2 accounts, browsers are good-but we might forget to make a pick or an order.

If I have a better team mate, yes-I would play with him/her. But, what I said advantage is about having bad team mate. If you play with team mates who just play for themselves and surrender when they're double teamed, not caring about team-in my view, it is advantageous to have self on team.

It depends a lot on the timer. I can play easily on 2 accounts but I can't multi-task well if I do this.

There are some who plays from 4 accounts too :P

Well, dictating teammates is always bad as the "i-know-everything" geeks never listen to what you say or what is good for team; if you do the same thing what they do, you will be named bad guy and blamed poor team guy.

0 prerequisites isn't bad; sometimes you put more prerequisites and wait for more time to fill the game. I do agree that no prereq. attracts bad players, but if I'm playing to kill time-i don't mind it.

Getting a good teammate who checks orders and tells what is wrong-sounds nice. maybe it is better than playing on 2 accounts.

It is better to play with partner not only because he can check for mistakes, but - more importantly imo - you have different ideas and playstyles. Therefore, one can see options which the other don't consider. It is harder to predict their moves, too.

I don't think it is wrong to play a 2v2 game as a single player controlling 2 accounts. But they aren't 'wrong' to boot you if you go over the time limit. Before each game begins you are able to see the game settings, and by playing a game you agree to those settings. Just like in speed chess, basketball, football, soccer there is a time limit you must play within. It is just as much a part of the game as your initial picks, or your turn order. If you want more time to play each turn, set up your own game with more time for each turn, or set up a game with a time bank. That being said, it might not have been ethical. But ethics are almost always relative to the individual. So you probably could make an argument that it was unfair for them to boot you, but I also think you could make an equally strong argument that it is unfair to make your opponents wait for you to formulate and create 2 sets of orders. I personally think once you agree to the rules in a game by joining said game, you should play by those rules and not be upset if they don't go your way. No one made you agree to join the game.
