    Not wishing to sway the vote, when a player uses alts to gain an advantage;

    is the current punishment of removing only the alts, that are without question alts, a deterrent for those that are prepared to cheat?

    No all the accts should be banned not just the alt itself! However this being said people have been accused of being my alts in the past and have been banned for it so if I got banne too I'd be pissed, so a new justice system needs to be implicated as they Kano get told it's an alt and next day it's banned no questions asked!

    When someone has an alt it's only the alt that get banned! When someone cheats if try haven't bought a certain amount of UNs they are giving several warnings then if they continue it becomes permanent

    of course not. this is a silly question. if i create an alt that gets banned, what's to stop me from creating another one?

    I personally feel that alts aren't the biggest problem in the games. Sure, someone can make an alt and use it to gain an advantage, but a greater advantage comes from the use of scripts. If people have created multiple alts they should have a scalable punishment (i.e. 2 warnings, 24 hr ban, 1 wk ban, permanent ban), but using a program to hunt the hitlist, level, etc. is a much greater advantage than an alt can give.

    it depends. alts may not be much of a problem in the main game. but i think it's a HUGE problem for other parts (specifically, syndicate wars and war mode, but also the battle arenas).

    Alts are cheating,just like scripts, bots and programmed gaming mice.

    maybe, but there are other "loopholes" that can be exploited that kano has said are not against the rules. so what does all of this matter? if you don't cheat and exploit what is allowed, what's the difference?

    Cheating is still cheating. All alts should be permanently banned. Their main account should be reset to level on. Their cheater status should be posted on wc and their account name should be changed to a special colour. So all other gamers know they cheated.

    I agree from one point it is a silly question ;) , but its a poll the more that vote the better chance of the fair players get a voice.

    You never know, something might be changed to punish the main account and discourage any form of cheating :)

    If there is a change to the philosophy so the main gets punished, then there is better chance that loopholes will also be addressed ;)

    none of this will change, and there's no point in discussing it (again). deal with it like i do. if you don't like it, go do something else.

    Nope it doesn't. It clearly says in the rules no cheating. All this temp freezes and so on shouldn't be done. Your caught cheating you have two choices.

    1, You start over your whole game no crying like an xxx You cheated you got caught therefore you lose your account period.

    2. You still lose your account period no crying like an xxx. And if you don't want to play go cry like an xxx in Farmville.

    And yet another thread where you feel no one should be discussing anything and to just live with it. Imagine how the game would be if everyone felt the same way on any subject pertinent to it.

    Agreed. On both. You lose your main account. It's like betting on baseball. You're caught you're gone. No crying. There are signs on the wall in every clubhouse telling you not to do it. And there are warnings in the rules in KANO games not to have alts.

    Cheating is still cheating .Its wrong. Would you want a doctor practicing medicine on you or your family that cut short his education and cheated on his exams. No you would not, If that doctor got caught he would have his license pulled and do jail time.

    Perhaps when the Development News comes out indicating X number of bans list the name of the alt and the name of the player using the alt. Then let the players mete out their own brand of justice. If everyone is as offended by alts as it seems a mass demobbing should soon result, no syndicate should accept you (unless it's a synd of alts), continual trips to the hitlist, and so forth. This is Mob Wars after all so let the mob determine the punishment for the crime.

    There have been plenty of occasions where I've seen the rumor mill spit out false allegations/speculations of real people being alts, and I've had to step up and say,"I know this person personally & he/she isn't an alt". I'm glad that Kano actually looks into the cases.

    They should make a Kano wall of Shame and name all the duplicate accounts along with the Faction they are in

    Agreed there are people falsely accused that i have had interaction with on a daily basis but the question is what to do with the cheats and the answer is ban them all but once again bannong too many accts cant be good for kanos botom line some of the biggest have had multiple accts and the big ones spend a ton of money usually
