Nation Sitting Clarification pt.2

Recommended Posts

i would have posted this follow.up in my previous clarification question, but it has since been locked.  in that topic, the response provided indicated that moderation can not evaluate the *reasons* for a nation sit.  fair enough. i have no issues with the nation sit being approved. 

 

but here's what i am still trying to understand.

 

Nation A is being engaged in war and Nation B is also a target.  should an attacker engage Nation A *and* Nation B concurrently, nation sitter can fire back with both barrels (based on my review of the previous question topics on this situation).  if only one person is controlling the nation, fine.

 

however, Nation A asks to sit Nation B.  Nation B shares login and password for their nation after the request is approved.  Nation B continues to login every day and run their nation, while Nation A is always available as a 'backup' should an attacker arrive and Nation B is unable to respond in a timely fashion.  the Nations outlined in my previous question potentially benefitted from this arrangement for over 3 weeks before the sit was cancelled in response to the query.

 

i understand that there are tools available to confirm that nation sitting rules are being followed.  shouldn't these tools also flag when the owner of a Nation being sat logs in ?  my question is why the nation sit is allowed to continue when the nation's owner is continuing to log in.  shouldn't that automatically cancel the nation sit immediately ?

 

or are we all allowed to share each other's login and password information as long as we have an approved nation sit to back us up ?  or is that option only available to special players ?

If Chuck declares on Alice after Bob declares on Chuck, it's legal. But Alice is not allowed to declare on Chuck if Chuck declared on Bob. It is not allowed to use both nations to attack the same nation in an offensive war while involved in a nation sit. The case you're speaking of is legal as oya declared on the WTF nation and the WTF nation declared on Cuba. As it was a defensive war, it is not against the rules. Password and login sharing are part of a nation sit.
 
The distinction to be drawn here is it not relevant if the nation sittee is posting on the forums as long as they don't login to their actual nation during the nation sit.

Nation sit requests are cancelled at the behest of the nation sitter or nation sittee if the nation sittee indicates they have returned. There are situations where a player may be able to post on the forums but incapable of logging in-game. It is not moderation's job to judge the reasons involved nor is it yours. It is not unusual for players to request a nation sit when their alliance is at war and they're not active enough to login or they need a break from the game. Nothing out of the ordinary has happened.
