Default A friend using wireless connection on his laptop

I searched for it, but I am assuming it had too many key words, or simply hasn't been asked. I apologize before hand in case the question has been asked, and answered.

A friend of mine is planning on playing in the new age, as he has watched me play and enjoys the fact this game is a strategy browser game.
Now, obviously he will be using his own connection at home to play, but as he does hang out over at my house every now and then, I am wondering what the rule is on us both being online using my wireless connection. He has a laptop and frequently hooks up to my internet through the wireless, but I am unclear on the rules for him being on it at my home?
Again, he will use his own connection to play Bushtarion, but it would be regrettable if our accounts were banned for Multi'ing when he does come over.
I understand if we're not allowed to do this.

Thank you, Satureum.

Yes, but it would be under that same IP Address. I'm sure that had to raise a few questions.
I thought it better to bring it here before even attempting it.

Its fine.
I assume you are using NAT on your system, but dont worry. You see you are actually giving away more information than just simple things like IP address.
In case you are really worried, you may contact Azzer and ask him about it. But in the end you should be just fine.

All right, thanks.
I won't contact Azzer directly unless an actual problem arises with the issue, I'd rather not bother him with the new age so close.
Thank you.

Back in the days, me and two friends were always staying at one of our places throughout the first weekend. We were obviously on the same IP, and we've never had any questions asked about that. We were also attending the same school, and logged in frequently there - no problems at all.

You'll be fine

I'm pretty lenient on IP's. I've played too many web-games myself where they have strict rules in place about accounts from the same IP not interacting etc. which are always over-the-top and punish innocents as well as guilty's. If you're following the actual rules (not account sharing, babysitting, multi'ing), and abide the 30 minute rule and cookie limits and generally behave, you'll be fine with just sharing the IP!

Well, I'm truly relieved to see that it is indeed fine with you.
I agree, most games have strict rules on any IP with two accounts, banned.
I'll make sure we follow the 30 minute rule, and don't over use the cookie limit.
And thank you.

Aye, me and my bro use the same wireless... It's only on occasion we break the 30 min rule (curses for using the laptop). As long as you have separate comps/laptops you'll be fine

As far as I'm aware the 30 minute rule will only apply to a single computer - that is to say, both you and your friend can play at the same time on the same network with no repercussions. As long as you don't swap computers half-way through, you'll be absolutely fine!

When Lukey came around mine he played on my dad's laptop on our wireless, so he'd never played on that comp before, we were both on at the same time from the same IP in the same alliance and we didn't get in trouble!!

Azzer has a sixth sense, just don't cheat and you will be fine.

Well, instead of a laptop, he's using his PS3. Hooray for wireless in the PS3!

And hooray for not getting us both banned : D
