    Deleting provinces during war

    I would like to know how IP and everything else works for Utopia. Our king and two of his friends work together and often play while at work and we were in a war and immediately surrendered because Utopia Admin decided to delete all three of their accounts at once. Leaving our kingdom without a monarch and dropping us 500k NW in one foul swoop. Just curious how all this works, and if our monarch returns we could only have him and we would lose the other two people. Just seems a bit ridiculous. There is just no way to verify people are unique besides IP? So if a kingdom all went to starbucks together you would delete a whole kingdom? I just don't understand. Please explain.

    Basically, yeah. I understand it's frustrating and not totally ideal, but what other easy-to-implement option is there?

    We have a bunch of Pinoys in our KD. They are often blocked from hitting the same target. Our theory on that is that Philippines internet/mobile is ****, and has one big server or something (**** if I know anything about IT/computers) and blocks them because they use the same mobile provider.

    Your monarch and his buds who work together could play together by logging in from their phones only during work time, not work computers. They would then be free to use their own comps and stuff at home, but just need to avoid using a common IP at work.

    No one that got deleted today was deleted because they shared just an IP.

    The monarch and other players have been in touch and they think it might be because of their provider?

    It's probably because they share the same body.

    We wouldn't be defending a multi if we thought that was the situation. Plus why would he create multiple slack and whatsapp accounts and have these people all talking in the in game chat. Most multi wouldn't go through all this trouble and I have played with the monarch for the last three ages and one of the other guys two ages and the other guy for one age. He has been asking people he works with to try and get us a bigger kingdom. I have asked people I work with if they wanted to play as well. Either way our monarch should be emailing bishop soon enough. Hopefully its just a misunderstanding and we get everyone back and just take a war loss and move on.
