I ended up thinking 'twinks' when I read that and immediately felt old. If only MUDs weren't all but extinct...

Back on topic, last I checked, the devs were trying to decide whether multiboxing itself was against the EULA. I vote we let them handle it themselves without this topic cloning itself over and over and over and ending the running gag here.

last i checked devs settled it isn't against the EULA years ago, and ever since they reasserted that position roughly once a month.

Not surprising, seeing as how these threads pop up like crabgrass every week...

No. No. No. No, and no. In roughly that order.


Can you make it more clear please.

It's already as clear as it could ever be. The OP has read something in the EULA, tried to claim it's only just been added (a lie), & attempted to twist it's meaning to add credibility to his own false beliefs on the matter (a common, yet futile tactic).

This post was lovingly crafted by a member of the Goonwaffe Posting Cabal, proud member of the popular gay hookup site somethingawful.com, Spelling Bee, Grammar Gestapo & #1 Official Gevlon Goblin Fanclub member.

No.

To clarify, Tippia means he can't possibly make it any clearer, not that he's refusing to.

The NEWS part is that someone actually took the time to read EULA in the first place.

That's been on there since ever. A subscribed account is a "license" to my knowledge.


This.
It means you can have 2 characters logged IF you use 2 accounts but not 2 characters on 1 account.

But I don't wanna use the large book with all the different words in it to check. People doubt the answer "no" that was provided about 200 times already so there must be something going on.

Having in mind the fact that CCP actively encourages people to buy more than one account, even does promos to do that, it must clearly be possible, to run multiple clients on the same PC, with separate account for each one of them.
I think CCP's legal team is not up to the job, providing such a copy and paste of standard computer software, where it clearly doesn't apply, nor match.

Each account IS a license.

Two of the defining characteristics of a carebear are wanting other players to play the way the carebear wants and whining on the forums for the game to change when they don't. Yet I see more threads on these forums from gankers than I do miners whining about wanting the game changed to suit them.
