GM ~ Purchased a new computer, giving old computer to BF - he plays as well. How to do this?

How can I avoid any kind of suspension or anything for him? I'll be formatting the current PC I'm using and giving it to him tomorrow, and ideally installing Phoenix on my new machine and using my current account on there. My concern is with him being able to play his account on this PC after I've wiped it and set it up for him. I've seen multiple people telling me to just get in touch with a GM and it should be able to be worked out.

Thanks in advance for your guidance!

Keep your account on old computer
Erase all the characters and hand it over to your BF.
Keep all resources and monies
Likely you have salvaging there it stays on account as well as epic encounters

Create new account on new computer

Level from scratch together

Encounter credit is character linked, if you delete the character that did the encounter you lose the credit.
The same for crafting.

Ciao Beckett,

i would suggest that this is set a sticky on all threads and maybe remembered in game
For example, i had some low levels that i deleted to redo them during event, people don't think that you loose the craft.

Unfortunately, you’re shit out of luck. You need a BRAND NEW machine now just for your BF to play.

I played Phoenix during beta on a desktop. When Phoenix went live, I played on a laptop.. having never used the desktop after the server wipe to prepare for the live launch. I inquired with the staff if I could use that PC for my son to play. I was told no.. that I’d have to buy him a new machine. Even though.. that PC hasn’t loaded Phoenix since before the server wipe.

The staff really needs to bring this lame rule back to the table and have another look at it.
