Dear Ninja,

It has been a bit of a grey issue in the past where players have bought/traded/sold/transferred/lent accounts to be permanently or temporarily used by others. This is not usually enforced, because we simply do not have the manpower or will to investigate case by case whether an account has been transferred. Upon getting reports of scams, or accounts sold for real world currency however, we would ban the accounts. This will not change. We do not have the manpower to police such things.

However, in cases where bans/punishments are being handed out for cheating, or breaking any rules. All accounts have a trace of whom has created it, accessed it and used in over it's entire time registered. So once an account has been logged in by a player other than yourself, and that player later goes on to create any sort of trouble, your account will be punished just the same, as if it belonged to that player (because they shared an IP address).

Here is two examples:
Eg. 1 
PlayerA has been given a level 5 account named JohnDoe, and he renamed it to PlayerC.
PlayerA is PlayerC but JohnDoe had another "main account" named John.
PlayerC has done nothing wrong since then, and has trained his ninja to level 50 and gained a lot of items.
John later is found 1 year later to have used exploits to gain Ryo on his account "John".
PlayerC previously JohnDoe, will be banned.
John will be banned.
PlayerA will be banned.

Eg. 2
Peter and David are Nin Online players.
For a tournament, Peter lends David his account to help participate because David has better skills (and ping).
1 year later, David breaks the terms of service by attempting a PayPal chargeback on his cash shop items.
Davids accounts and all accounts linked by IP traces will be banned permanently, including Peters.


TL;DR:
If you share your accounts, or have any IP trace from someone else and they break the rules. Your account will go down with theirs.
No exceptions.

And starting today, 10th March 2020. In all future cases, this will be the standard going forward that we will adhere to.
Therefore, if you are currently using an account you have not registered. Please stop using that account.
If you are currently using an account you have previously lent to someone else to use Please stop using that account.
You may choose not to, but do so at your own risk.

Regards,
Ueda

Also, to add on to the above examples, if you login to any accounts that you didn't create you are putting your own IP and own account(s) at risk.

Eg. 3
PlayerA logs into PlayerB's account once to help transfer an item or something.
PlayerB is found 1 year later to have used exploits to gain Ryo.
PlayerB's IP Logs have traces of PlayerA's IP.
So all of PlayerA's accounts will be banned.

FAQs

Q: I've changed addresses and hence IP Addresses while playing Nin Online. Will this affect me?

A: No, as long as you are still in control of your account and all accounts linked to the old and new IP, nothing will happen.

 

Q: I have multiple people playing from the same IP address. My sibling/other half/parents play Nin Online as well. Will I get in trouble?

A: Yes, if they do something against the rules or terms of service, your accounts will also be liable for punishments.
