In light of FLS' reversal on this policy, I would like to come clean that I am one of the individuals that has multiple accounts. I have a Pirate account here on Antigua as well.
Some of you that I play with regularly have known this for quite some time. I imagine that a few of the devs that I am friendly with may have known this as well.
As I have always done, I have not and will not ever use my accounts to cheat, grief, or spy on either side's RvR activities.
I have not participated in any Pirate port battles against France, not will I. I also do not participate in port battles against Pirates. It is not prohibited, but I still feel it to be against the spirit of the game to "change sides". I do not, however, discriminate when it comes to the red zone.
I apologise to anyone who was not aware. I did not want to deceive anyone, but felt it was necessary to keep it to a need-to-know basis until now.
