    Hey everyone! I've talked to Joe about our rules regarding alts and I want to bring to your attention a few things. Please read this post carefully to ensure you remain within the rules. Our full rules regarding alts are listed in this thread.

    5 accounts per IP. Always.

    • Recently, we have had players who have been stuck in the following scenario: They log on using 5 accounts. Now, let's say I lose access to my account 'Holly'. I still have 5 accounts on my IP, yet I can only use 4 of them. I then ask a staff member if they can disregard the account Holly, so that I can use another alt. The staff member adds a note to my main account saying 'do not ban for alt limit'. I can then log on another alt. I now have 6 accounts associated with my IP, yet can only access 5 of them.

      This is not allowed. The first 5 accounts that you log into Skycade with are the 5 alts you will be allowed to use. This extends to public alts (read more about these below), meaning that if a public alt is one of your 5, and it is banned, you may not log on using another account.

    • The 5 accounts per IP rule extends to siblings. The rule is 5 accounts per IP, not per person. If a brother and a sister share an IP, they can not individually have 5 accounts. They can have 5 accounts between them.

    • Let me also remind you to not use public alts, such as MCLeaks accounts. You run the risk of being banned, even if you have committed no crime, as other players could abuse the public alt that you have associated with your IP. Do not take the risk. Do not use public alts.
    The TLDR to take away from this is the rule '5 accounts per IP'. If you have any questions, add a post to this thread and a member of staff will get back to you.

    UPDATE: We are now habitually banning public alts to avoid the problems that they cause, so please don't use them.

    A reminder to help people out :D



    5 alts... always


    There will be no change, even if siblings come into matter

    Presumably, or your IP may have changed if you did something like reset your internet.

    It's against the rules, and they would probably be caught. But yes, what you're saying could potentially happen.

    Wait wait so you're saying that "do not ban for alt limit" is now no longer effective and that even if one of them is compromised you can't use another another alt that hasnt logged on to skycade?

    Correct. The first five you log in with are the five you're stuck with whether you lose access to them or not.

    Pretty sure not, because his account "switched" ips when they log in on one ip and then log in on another

    If he logged back in from his house you will not be banned.

    well, I play on another factions server, I logged into my alt to afk on that factions server, but I accidently logged on skycade, do you get banned for this? I had this scenario earlier, but I didn't go over my alt limit
