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 caution when using these tools. Be aware that if they require your Session ID and you provide it, it is possible that the developer of the tool can take control of your game and do whatever 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.
