The only information on the site is that which you get from visiting a player's city, and checking the rankings tab.Absolutely not amused about this site, as it grabs player and city information, exports it outside of Inno servers and doesnt't even ask for player's permission to do so. I hope it gets shut down ASAP ! Seriously !
To all of them, as I did not agree that it is used OUTSIDE of the contract that I have with Innogames. Pretty simple, huh ?Which one of those are you objecting to?
And now, anyone can see it, even if they don't play a specific server or not even play the game at all (including all sorts of data miners).If all of the data is there for everyone to see when they visit your city
@Elrondriel I fully agree with youTo all of them, as I did not agree that it is used OUTSIDE of the contract that I have with Innogames. Pretty simple, huh ?
It's clear that they only grab data ingame and cannot access RL personal data, but that doesn't make any difference to me.
If certain players want to see some of the a.m. information, they can opt-in/register to such service (which implies validation of the player account), but I strongly object to gathering such information on a wide scale without player agreement. We'll see what Inno decides on this ...

I agree it's a ToS breach, there is no way someone is manually gathering all that information. nor do I belief it uses a API made aviable by innogames as if that was aviable then konniver would have already implemented it in elvenarchitect.
Me too, I often have FS members who ask for help with their city design, and this makes it so much faster.Fabulous idea. LOVE the ability to import into Elvenarchitect.
I dunno... either your FS has activity rules or not, and either you are breaking those rules or not. Wouldn't getting "caught" like this only happen if you lied and said you had no internet access or something?1) I had this type of websites in some other games, and there were always a lot of people using it for not so pleasant reasons (e.g. "you weren't on in our guild yesterday, but you played on another server. WTF..."
I am not aware of this, link?2) The new european law coming in effect at the end of may...
