New Player with Same IP

Hey LT,

So I'm a LT veteran and my son has watched me play some games. We started playing https://play.freeciv.org/ against each other. Now he wants to play LT.

I'm wondering if it's ok to allow him and myself to play this game with me. I will most definitely be helping and teaching him and looking at his screen and him also mine. We may even play at the same time on different computers. He lives with me and it will be of course be from the same IP address when we are both home. He hasn't made an account yet, but will if it's ok if he plays.

I can take myself and him off an winners list now if someone objects, no problem. I always try to win, but would be more fun to play with him than win. Post here or if you'd rather object privately, send a private message to me or admin.

This has happened before in LT30: http://forum.longturn.org/viewtopic.php?id=52.

Thanks for considering,
cgalik

Hey cgalik,

I don't see a problem there as long as people know you are playing together. This is of course my personal opinion and not the collective opinion or any kind of administration decision.

If people knowing each other and/or living together want to play it makes sense for them to play. We might want to make more some kind of team games if this would become really common but with few "home team" players playing together hardly seems any trouble.

Unfortunately LT37 has just started so he needs to wait for LT38. The forum for LT38 will be opened shortly and this time there shouldn't be too much delay between the games. The current ruleset should need much less changes for the next game. Hopefully only minor changes quick and easy to make.

Sounds good, and yeah too late for LT37. We'll see what others think. (I should have posted in general forum, not LT37 forum.)

I see no problem with it since it was announced early enough.

You're finally getting it wink

As far as I'm concerned, if there is ANY way of getting the kid into LT37, I'd go for it. Why wait for a year? He'll lose interest by then tongue
