PW "lockdown" periods

There are sometimes times when tons of new accounts are created just to raid and spam.
For these cases, I suggest having a “safety mode”.

In safety mode, all exisiting PW accounts can play normally. However, if you press on “New Account”, instead of the usual intro, you would get this screen:

Registration Key
Please input your key below:
[Text field for key]
[No key?] [Register]

The No Key button would bring up this:

Why do you need a key?
This is a temporary safety measure, which is to help prevent raids.
Where can I get a registration key?
Please contact
When will this go away?
Usually, the registration key requirement goes away after a few days, but can be brought back according to the situation.

Please tell me what do you think. PLEASE SHARE CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM. I will ignore any non-constructive criticism.

What happens if somebody actually starts playing pw that day.

They can either wait for a while or contact for a registration key.

For example, CloneMii (Miiverse clone) has it so you need a registration key to register too. And I’m the one that wants to register on there, so I went and contacted the owner so they can give me one.

That could deter them from wanting to play the game.

That would deter them.

It would also overcomplicate everything. The real fix is to get more moderators.

You cannot register without a key.

As others have said, this would be complicated, and if I were a new player wanting to join and I literally had to contact the game’s developers to even play, I’d immediately uninstall the game.



On a note of seriousness, bad idea. I don’t wanna wait like 2 weeks to make an account to start playing a game, so i probably would just delete it if i were them. Captcha would be better
