    Hello, fellow gamers!

    War. war never changes.

    Recently, we have witnessed another battle between members of several well-known clans. Unfortunately, this war broke out not in the world of Lineage II (where it belongs), but in the message box of Lineage II Support Service. The so-called "petition war" made us reconsider our approach towards the account sharing problem.

    First of all, let me clear out why sharing an account with someone is a violation.

    1) Providing someone with your login and password violates paragraph 4.2 of annex 1 to the User Agreement which states the following:
    "4.2. The User has a right to change his/her password. The User is to secure confidentiality of his/her password and of other necessary data and is consequently responsible for the loss and disclosure of his/her password, as well as risks (losses) related to it. Sharing of 4game accounts or the game access is strictly prohibited."


    This is the main reason why you should not share.

    2) By giving someone access to your account, you put your in-game valuables at risk. We had hundreds of cases when Users lost their items because they shared their personal information with people who they barely knew (or thought that knew very well).

    3) It is simply unfair. The in-game character's are your alter egos! Sounds weird, yes, but it is true. If you are not there to be for your clan or CP, than why your character should?

    So, what happened last week is that we realized that you, guys turned this rule into a weapon that you are using against each other. To most of the people whom I talked to via tickets, I tried to deliver a simple idea: Don't share, and even if you will get mass petitioned by your enemies, you won't get banned.

    But it seems that top Clans and CP's just can't play any other way than this.

    We could not let it stay this way, so we came up with a decision of how we are going to treat tickets like "this guy shares an account! he is my enemy ban him forever!".

    Here it comes...

    We are going to stop accepting account sharing reports, unless the reporter takes part in sharing (has or had access to account).

    From now on, if you share your account, Support Service will not be able to help in case you get scammed or hacked.

    If you have any suggestions, or feedback, please leave it in this thread.

    And to prevent this thread from becoming a disaster, I impose martial law in here. any Users who will attempt to flame or troll, will be shot on sight.

    Regards,
    Pazak

    pick some rule that you can actually apply, account sharing was always part of l2 in some way... pa is already a good way to limit boxing...

    what are the actual intentions of the rule? there should be some better way to enforce it.

    rule was made to prevent people from sharing accounts and getting scammed, as we all know you cannot trust many people in this game. this was made for gms to have less work to do (nothing bad to be honest), as someone who has been scammed for sharing his account should be under his own responsability, and gms got nothing to do with it.

    i agree with this announcement, if someone gets scammed because of lending his own account himself (getting hacked is ofc different) should be his responsability and not gms', and as we all know sharing account is something lot of people do in this game.

    it's clearly stated that account belong only to one person and there is no exception.

    it's mainly pointed to people who give authorisation to people they know only via game. some people might become totall different when they get your account info and you risk loose your items.

    if your account would be actually hacked you will get a help from gm team,

    regards

    so account sharing is still forbidden, but u will accept reports only from

    1. owner of account
    2. person, which logged into the shared account

    correct?
