Account / TOU (Everything concerning accounts)

Creation of an account

  1. Registration is done on the starting page. Please note that you may have only one account per server.
  2. First, the TOU are displayed. They should be read carefully before clicking on "proceed".
  3. Then the user has to choose a name without any title; the title is assigned automatically within the game. Also the user has to complete the other fields in the form. We ask the users to choose a nick name that will not offend any other player in the game. In particular, names from well known persons of the recent history, especially from wars and similar affairs, should be avoided.
  4. The user can select whether to play as Settler or Warrior.
  5. There are different servers to choose from, which differ in their speed of play. A red lamp indicates that currently no game is running on this particular server. When you move the mouse over a lamp, server details will be displayed.
  6. Now a starting site on the map is assigned to the user. If necessary, the map size is increased at this stage.
  7. Everything is prepared now. After a login with name, password and script code (the three colored letters) the user enters the game.
  8. After the login, a page to enter the activation code is displayed. This activation code is sent automatically to the e-mail address used during registration. Most other pages from the game can not be accessed before the activation code has been entered. Also, an account has to be activated within 48 hours; after these 48 hours the account will be canceled. If the e-mail from L&L with the activation code does not reach the provided e-mail address (please check also the Junk / Spam / Bulk folder), please check or change the e-mail address under "Settings". A new code can then be send to the provided e-mail address on the account activation page.
  9. A user may upload a self-made flag under "Settings".
  10. L&L also offers the option for users to subscribe to a premium account (under "Settings"). In addition to supporting the L&L team, this enables premium functionality in L&L. However, these premium-functions do not include actual advantages within the game play; all users have the same chances for success and good ranking.

If players have registered previously, they can log into the game with their old nick name and choose a new nick name for the current age, if they desire to do so. An existing premium account is transferred onto the new nick name.

Multi account

Some players are able to interest their friends, families, or colleagues in L&L. Often the game is then being played on a shared connection or network. Unfortunately we have an automatic multi account detection that gets activated this way and bans all involved accounts. To allow these players to take part in L&L, we encourage them to send a system query under "messages" to the administrators. After as short probe of the situation we may declare these players to "official multis" and unban their accounts. Their nick names are then posted in the "news" forum. Official multis have to observe the following rules:

  1. If one multi-player is at war, none of his multi-partners may declare war against the same enemy.
  2. No wars against each other.
  3. No alliances with each other.
  4. No espionage actions against the same third person.
  5. Regardless of their status as official multis, they may not log into each other account.

If those rules are not followed the accounts may be banned from the game!

Cancellation of an account

They only way to delete an account is to let the account become inactive by not logging in. The deletion of an account happens at the following times:

S1 S2 S3 S4 S5
up to a score of 40,000 and not involved in any war 2 days 2 days 2 days 2 days 4 days
above a score of 40,000 and not involved in any war 5 days 5 days 3 days 5 days 8 days
above a score of 40,000 and at war 20 days 20 days 5 days 10 days 33 days
with activated vacation-mode or activated deletion-stop (Premium account) 21 days 21 days 21 days 21 days 35 days
after defeat (for restart please see below) 3 days 3 days 3 days 3 days 5 days

If special Ages (speed games) have other time spans until deletion, these changes will be announced in the news forum.

If an account is deleted due to inactivity, a restarting player is treated like an new player. None of the research is transferred and the starting honor is 1000.

Restart

Your last castle has been conquered and your lordship has ended. Now you need to log in again with your nick name and click on the link provided under "Events" in the message about your defeat. This is only possible for 3 days after your defeat. All your research gets transferred then to the new account, as does your previous honor value - positive or negative.

Premium account
