a question for the developers

Dear Developers,

When someone creates an MCOC account, does the game note the IP address and device used to create that account?

    Most likely they are both noted. You create the user in game, connected to the internet on your device, so they most likely record it as an inital user or first login...

    Why would this even matter? I assume you either plan on sharing your account, or you travel a lot, or use several different devices. Pretty sure they also track unusual activity; ie: Login from California, US then 3 hours later login from Paris, France would be a huge red flag

    No, I have no intention of account sharing.

    In fact, I WANT the game to collect this data.

    Not sure about the device, but i’m almost certain it logs the IP.

    I'm pretty sure the iTunes and Play Store do, as well as MCoC. It would be the only way they could detect abnormal patterns consistent with piloting or account sharing. At least I think. Lol
