Thread: Get rid of the 2 hour rule to switch toons

    Get rid of the 2 hour rule to switch toons

    I am playing 2 toons on 2 devices, one of which is older and can't be updated. The older device runs slow, difficult to open chat during wars, does not have current game updates. It would be REAL sweet to be able to go between the 2 toons freely on one device ....
    And the 48 hour rule? PLEASE decrease or eliminate it. I know you claim it is for our protection; however, I see little difference between decreasing it to 24 hours vs leaving it the same or increasing it to 72 hours. All appear equal as far as "protection"....decreasing it to 24 hours would significantly increase revenue for the game tho

    If you could freely swap, people would exploit. Bring down a building's defenders with Sniper, swap to Assassin and cap, swap to HW for demo, swap back to Sniper for next building, all the while healing with an Enforcer.

    Ummmm...... That goes on NOW. People just have multiple devices. I know peeps with more than 5 devices....all with toons actively being played. You are not preventing expoitation.... The expensive solution for me would be to just buy a newer iPod or iPad .... I was hoping, considering the amount your players spend on this game, you would consider making the game easier for those of us with more than one toon.

    Again, I am not asking to switch classes during a war. I am asking to be able to switch between toons, playing toons I have grown, invested in, and enjoy....without having to purchase another device. I would much rather use those funds on factor points to grow my toons.

    Works on android. Clear data on underworld empire then reopen. Log in to googleplay. Switch character. Bypasses the stupid cooldown. Works in eve as well. Just make sure you're not buying FP for the next 48 hours.

    P.s if you have an iPhone, that's too bad.

    Can see why the cool down for switching characters is in place, it is no coincidence that it is 2 hours same as the war length. Interesting to know you can do that on android, only played on Apple devices (I know, I know apple whore and all that), downfall of playing on a device so locked down, might have to look if there is a work around for this on jail broken devices.

    48 Hour protection thing actually stopped me buying FP this weekend on two accounts, created a new account and because I had played two of my characters on two devices, I couldn't buy favor on either, as such I missed out on the new character bonus and didn't bother buying anything on either characters, may as well buy an album off iTunes instead.

    i really dont see that as an exploit. most people who have more than 1 toon already have more than 1 device.

    it would just look more sane to use 1 device for all toons rather than line up all devices next to each other during war. Eventually people start questioning your sanity lol

    You must not have seen Scorpia's video on YouTube... Look it up. The dude has like 6 devices lined up... As far as the 48 hour rule, it's actually kept kablam from getting money from me. I've wanted to but the promos on my lsi toon, but since it's empireless and the BSI is in an empire, I can't miss wars on it. No idea how that's for our "protection" in the first place, honestly. If it's to keep stolen devices from being able to use another's money, I honestly doubt a theif is going to steal my phone just to buy things on UE... Literally the only other person I know personally that plays is my BF. Regardless, most of the promos are so short that the time is usually up by the time the 48 hours are over. So, in my case, Kablam has cost itself money.

    I agree with this. I mean it is still exploited by multiple devices right now.

    Lots of alts out there, only the ones with many devices playing them at once. I find it weird.

    Any other similar game I have played has either allowed it open or made it against ToS to have multiple accounts so that those with many devices don't have an advantage over those who do not.

    I am curios how you could possibly enforce a rule like that... How could you prove one person was using two devices?
    OP
    Personally I think it should be left as it is. I agree with joker that it would be abused. Also IMO account security is much more important.

    Re: Get rid of the 2 hour rule to switch toons

    I understand why the FP cool down exists and I think it's a good idea. But I don't understand why the 2 hr cool down between switching toons exist. Everyone who have more than one toon usually have more than one device, they can kill players and bring down buildings with their toons, I know I have. But when I'm out or go on trips I normally take one device and I hate waiting 2 hrs to switch between toons. It would be better if it didn't exist.

    Just use a nexus 7 (2013) edition. You can freely switch between characters as and when you like. Android.

    Re: Get rid of the 2 hour rule to switch toons

    The 48hrs cool down on FP purchase was ok back when they gave you 3 days heads up on events. You also didn't have to create separate game center accounts back then either.

    This auto-switch glitch resetting the cool down timer is a royal pain that is costing PA more money then they realize.

    My devices are Android and I have to wait 2 hours between swapping

    Re: Get rid of the 2 hour rule to switch toons

    I think, as said many times, it would be more exploitable. Not all of us have 6 devices, but all of us have 1. Shortening the 2 hours down to something smaller might be a little more helpful though. In general I'm just happy enough we can have multiple toons in this game...

    Yeah me too, the amount of times I see the promos, go to click on it, then realise I cant because I have logged in on my device on another toon. It is annoying but I think my other half likes it because I too quickly spend Ł20 on random crap (like make believe money in a phone game) and this stops me haha.

    You can also create android virtual machines and run an entire empire from your laptop if you were so inclined...
