Designated playing, good idea?
I saw this and had an idea. How about "designated playing"? An in game option where another player IN THE SAME ALLIANCE would be able to log into an alliance mates account to run aq or aw when they are on vacation or just need a night of. How it would work is the player A would go in game and send something like an invite to player B in their alliance, that invite would be accepted and it would allow player B to log in and play player As account for 30 minutes in 3 segments of 8 hour sections of the day.
For example, from 4am to 12pm you can play for one half hour either at the beginning or end of the 8 hours and then it would be another half hour in the next segment of hours between 12 pm and 8 pm but with the requirement that you are logged out of that account at the end of every 8 hour segment wether you have used the whole 30 minutes or not.
To prevent abuse , the "invitation" and acceptance of the "invitation" must be set up and completed at least 5 days in advance of the "designated player" date. The game would have to record the device identity of both players to ensure that they are the owners of those accounts.
You could have a tab that allows you to switch to the account that you are "designated" for. To further ensure that this is only used for aw and aq, when you switch to the "designated profile" your in game options change to be able to only access the AQ and aw game modes.
I thinking set up properly this could be an excellent compromise and, once the bugs are worked out, easily enforceable so we don't have those sticky situations and only the people trying to game the system would be able to really complain anymore.
