Maybe I'm missing something, but I'm not sure how this would help much. The most someone could really do is bid up their own card...but then they are pretty likely to get stuck with it and spend unwanted points.

I guess they could try to have auctions end at weird times where they may be able to buy a card from one of their other accounts for below value...but that seems like a lot of effort and not by any means fool proof.

There are ways that they could combat that but there are also good reasons to allow multiple accounts. If more than one family member wants to play would be one. Others have come up with the idea of creating a second team consisting of only players from their favorite team. I may try that one.

If logins are somehow tied to the license then they could simply not allow auction transactions between two accounts on the same license.

It is pretty simple. I have a second team I earn points on that second account. I want to transfer those points to my primary team. I login to the primary team put a common card up for auction with a high minimum bid and buy it now price. I then log in to my secondary account and buy it transferring points to the primary. Of course if you do that enough your secondary team will become so bad that it might not earn much.

My second account lists a card on a 24-hour auction with no Buy It Now at the minimum price. My first account bids on it. Where’s the exploit? Anybody can outbid me for it.

Multiple accounts let a guy funnel money to one account from multiple teams via auction and bidding on your own (from other teams you control) accounts.

It’s a pretty common thing in pay for card game modes.

You could put up a bum card worth 5 PP for 700 PP ... nobody will buy it, of course ... only your second account does.

Nice profit, right?

But I think this whole PT should be fun, so this second and third account stuff is not for me

Note that you did not respond to what I said. I am listing the card at the minimum price, i.e. 5pp for a common. Again I ask, where's the exploit?

My point is that not every transaction between two accounts is cheating, so banning it entirely is not necessary.

And the ways to catch this activity are well known.

I have 3 accounts and 3 teams and have no intentions of doing anything against the rules with them. But generalizations are fun!

Might be well known, but does not mean it's implemented and working as intended here. In every other game I have played with card management teams, you are limited to one team per license.



I know before I even have the start of a thought about spending money on this game mode, I'll need to have assurances that lil' Timmy down the road is not using his 3 teams to abuse the system. Because if he is, then what's the point ?

I agree, but where do you draw the line? So I have to agree with eldur00, one team per license would be fair.

On the other hand, guys can (and most likely will) spend real money to buy packs (and subsequently excelllent players), so smart card managing probably won't take you all the way to the top

You draw the line at exploitation and ban the offending account.

Yes, but to what point is a transaction not cheating and from what point on it is considered cheating?

I guess that there is a huge gray area.

Its a clever way to earn some serious PP. Create multiple teams and funnel all the PP earned to the main team through the auction house. Main team puts up a bronze with 100PP buy me now, grind account buys it. People do similar stuff in Madden of course, but it entails a lot of grinding time. Here, you can create multiple teams and trickle PP earned to your main squad with little effort.

I'm assuming that there are some controls in place to negate it. The penalty should be a ban if you're caught. That said, as long as your not egregious with the trade in the auction house - buying a base card for say 1000pp at a clip, I bet you can you fly under the radar for quite some time. I wonder if Markus has some backend analytics that looks at "trade" frequency between two teams - That's how I would ferret this out.

Markhus, I'm assuming this practice is illegal. If not, I'm off to create a few dozen minor league teams lol.

We've commented on this a few times around the boards already but it is illegal, and we do have some safeguards already in place and are working to implement more.

I'd think in order to prevent cheating on the same license, you'd have to have a license key assigned to each login and prevent the same license accounts from buying and selling to/from each other and being in the same league with each other.

But there's not a lot you can do about people with multiple licenses and you'd have to just look for suspicious behavior. However, if you have the money to buy additional licenses, you could just spend the money on PP instead, so maybe that won't be a big issue. I dunno.
