Two players on one IP - how can we have more than 3 accounts total?

    Since both me and my gf started playing at the same time, we're now limited to only having 3 accounts in total. The rules mention that there

    You may only have THREE (3) accounts PER IP/HOUSE HOLD (1) unless otherwise given permission for.​

    How can we get a permission to create more than three accounts total? Are there some requirements that we must fulfill first?

    I haven't donated yet.

    Would donating change this? How much would I need to donate?

    Well technically I can get ahold of many different IPs to play from (got access to lots of servers I can VPN through), but I don't want to be the asshole who tries to work around the rules :) I'd rather donate a few dollars than break the rules.

    For a small fee of $59.99 per month you can post all the spam you want on the forums, exploit every mechanic in-game, and even grief players until they quit!

    That's an @Shane question. I dunno if it'll help, but it definitely ain't gonna hurt.

    That's not what I meant. Having 4 accounts for 2 people doesn't hurt anyone and doesn't give me any advantage at all. If anything it's worse than the default, since 2 people would have 6 accounts.

    WELL IF YOU WANT AN ACTUAL REPLY....

    Several people have posted asking this before, and from what I understand there used to be exceptions to the rule if you simply PMed a staff member (Adam or Shane) and discussed it with them. However, I was under the impression from the posts they haven't been allowing this recently.

    No, donating has absolutely no effect on how many accounts you can have.

    Only @Shane can authorize more accounts on a single IP, and I am not sure it is done too much anymore.

    When they went to 3 accounts per it was to eliminate any exceptions to the number of accounts per Ip.


    It is 3 per Ip. That is up to 27 chars for two people. You should be fine.

    I don't think you're interpreting the rules correctly. If that was the case, I could get 5 IP addresses on the same apartment and multi-client on 15 accounts at the same time. That to me looks like a way more serious issue (regarding server load) and doesn't seem like something that would be allowed.

    Nope if caught that would ALSO be illegal. It doesn't change the fact that it is 3 per household.

    The rules specifically mention "unless otherwise given permission for.". The reason why I made this thread is because I'm asking for the permission, and whats needs to be done in case there are some requirements, for example contributing to the server somehow, or being a veteran player, or if it's as @halygon says not done anymore.

    That's what I'm telling you. That since the account number was up from 2 to 3 like a year ago you are probably not going to get it.

    Some of these guys are flaming butt hurt trolls and what Fallen is referencing is you can buy expansion slots for in game gold or dono coin I don't remember which that allows more characters per account. So if they say no to you getting more accounts for your GF then start saving to expand your accounts. Gold isn't that hard to come by in this game just time consuming.

    You can view this as a handicap or instead you have a dedicated healer :) Check out a healer/mage template. You'll be immortal :)

    If there is 2 players at the same IP and you can have 3 accounts then thats an account each and 1 spare. You dont need more than that.
