Creating an Account

From Star Wars Combine :: Game Guide

Jump to: navigation, search

Firstly, welcome to the Star Wars Combine (SWC). It is likely that you have already created your account, but there are several important points below that you should keep in mind.

Contents

First Page

When you click the link to join, the first page displays the terms and conditions for the game. Also, take note of the Multi Account warning just below. Players in Star Wars Combine (SWC) are allowed one account only, and therefore one character. Due to the nature of the game, having multiple accounts can give a significant and unfair advantage to those players. SWC is based around communities of players, and making multiple accounts to by-pass this is treated harshly.

It is permissible for multiple players to access SWC on the same Internet connection, however they must register themselves as such, in order that the administration can accurately track the player base. Please note that this type of account will be checked, as well as other accounts that appear on the same IP, and any determined to be owned by the same player will be banned for a set period of time (usually 30 days).

Second Page

This is where you set up the various details of your account, and your first character's name.

Character Handle

This is what you would like to have as your character's name. It is also what you can use to log in to SWC. There are a series of rules which must be followed when creating a username. If the rules are not followed then your username will be rejected and you will need to rethink.

  • Any character name must sound like a name and be properly capitalised. Numbers or special characters are not accepted.
  • Titles are not accepted in a username. EG: Sir, Lord, Darth etc.
  • Usernames must not resemble actual characters from the Star Wars or other fictional universe nor can they match names of real life celebrities or organisations.

Combine staff reserve the right to reject names which they feel are inappropriate and may also force a users name to change should certain circumstances require it.

E-mail

This is the email where your confirmation will be sent. It must therefore be a valid E-Mail address.

Personal Information

These sections are not required, and will not be viewable by other players unless you wish to allow them to do so.

Contact Information

Like personal information, this is not required and will not be viewable unless you allow it.

Other Information

Though not required, the drop down box helps the administration to determine which method is the best to advertise the game in order to obtain new players.

The 'multi' text box is for those new players that will be using the same Internet connection as an existing player. Enter the existing player's handle in the box (separate with a comma if there are multiple players) and the administration will look into it and add you as necessary.

Approval Process and Times

All join requests are reviewed manually by one Star Wars Combine Administrator. No application is accepted automatically. Approval time may range from 24 hours to 48 or even 72 hours. When the account is approved you will receive an email. The Staff may also contact you for further information, if necessary.

If the approval process takes longer than expected, please post in the forums and someone from the Staff will look into your case.
