cant you just easily download a proxy? like what some of the US people did when they first played EUKO? maybe this is just a shit idea so they don't need GMs online 24/7
As for what everyone else is saying... I agree, all that this is going to do is make it a little more difficult for them to koxp. They will figure it out how to beat it in no time though.
regardless thats bullshit. all a gm would have to do is ask the player to take screens, since i assume what was said about that gm on diez having constables was basically just players reporting cheaters to the gm.. then have the reporter/constable give them a list of names. attempt to contact each one. get a reply? make sure it isn't part of a bot. get no reply? go there. if they approached and every player dissapeared then banned, easy. i seem to recall knight online (whatever company makes their announcements and game rules) saying that if you're caught in a party of kospers or botters you share the same punishment they get. level with hackers? banned. hack and get caught by anyone? banned. this isnt a difficult problem to solve if you have an active community.
as for the ip restriction, as its already been said.. 1 connection per ip would be a better idea (maybe 2, 3 tops to account for siblings or turks playing with friends over) and there are freeware tools that you could bypass that limit with. its just the company pretending they're fixing problems so it looks like they're not just sitting on their thumbs.
online games = online farmers, you can reduce the amount but you can never stop it if anything players should receive more power ie the sheriff system was good just need to be able to ban certain people after x amount of jails
