Most events clearly say that multiple accounts can NOT be used and that doing so will disqualify you, however, the orange event is an in-game event and open to anyone and all prizes are bound. A GM might be able to explain whether it's accepted or not better then me, but if you're doing it on a "merchant alt" then I really don't see the point in doing it plus given the fact that you should only be using that alt for merchant only, just doesn't make sense at all.
As far as multiple characters that you DO play, then i personally see it as fine, but I would only use ONE account. Any single account can have multiple characters per server but you can't play two characters at once, so if you want to do weekly events on more then one character, then that's the safest way to do it and doing it this way is the best way to keep within aeria's Terms of Service. Remember though, you still can't spy on guilds or anything like that.
Simply put, don't use multiple accounts at once for anything other then merchant while the other ONE is doing whatever else.
As a side note, please refrain from mentioning any players names in the forums, if you have a dispute to settle with them, then please do it personally or send a ticket via contact us at the bottom of the page.
Hope this helps clear up things.
It is clearly stated in the ruleset recently posted in the forums that alts and mains can not be used simultaneously. EXCEPT to Sell. Let me also note that the portion of this response that is focused towards an event, is focused towards an ingame event, and the usage of an alt and main at the same time, not towards past or future events, or so called raffles, I used "x" player as an example because they have been doing exactly what is described as against ToA.
However in regards to this particular event only giving bound items, thus why is it a concern idea?
~Alts can be used to farm torches, these torches can then be used to level a main with out the need to party with them. Thus validates concern of these alts and mains simultaneously farming this event. So in fact yes items are bound, but that does not mean a main does not benifiet from an alt, or several alts farming the event.
To those of whom who needed clarification, im sure clarification has been provided, and thus we thank you.
However you can further clarify this for me.
Are we to have only a merchant alt or can an alt serv as playable and merchant.
As of currently there is nothing that says our alts need to be a: only merchants or b: only playable. Ruleset says we may have alts, that they may not be on simultaneously, but 1 can be selling while the other is active. It does not further clarify that either or needs to be solely a, or solely b. If u can clarify that, it would be wonderful.
