Third Party Game Tools
There are a number of players and Alliances coming up with some rather interesting game tools which some players find quite useful. We would urge you to exhibit the utmost of caution when using these tools. Be aware that if they require your Session ID and your provide it, it is possible that the developer of the tool can take control of your game and do with it what s/he wishes with it. The same can be said for your Username and Password, although this is even more severe, it is possible for the person that created the tool to steal your EA account entirely. Never give your account Username and Password to anyone, you are taking a massive risk should you do so and could lose access to everything tied to that account.
Use of external tools to render information which can already be obtained in-game, in a different manner, is allowed with the following stipulations:
• The tool is only allowed to gather and present information that is also available through the official game client.
• The tool is allowed to make direct calls to the Lord of Ultima servers; however the server load created by the tool must be similar to the server load the official game client generates during typical gameplay.
• The tool is NOT allowed to initiate actions for the user.
• EA does NOT check whether a tool is harmful to the user. EA does not give any guarantee about functionality or possible security risks created through the use of tools
• EA has the right to blacklist a tool. If a user is found to be using a tool after it has been officially blacklisted, EA can and will ban the users using this tool.
