People in the same network in Game Discussion Posted March 21, 2018 Generally speaking, the game developers position on this has been: no. The reason isn't so much that you're cheating as much as it's a huge hassle to setup a manually operated system to prove it isn't cheating. People have cheated a lot in times past and claimed to go to school together etc. I used to try trading with a nation that, while we weren't on the same network at the time of the trade, we had at times past been on the same network at the same time. The trade was blocked. I understand why, though. Not sure if Alex will weigh in or not, but just based on previous responses to questions like this, the answer will likely be to find other people to trade with.
