Cheating or Clever Tactics?

On ordinary worlds if you get a mate to build up a village for you to capture it is an advantage, but not a massive one.

On Casual worlds the advantages can be massive.

As you can start with a fully developed village your mate can delete and you can capture it with no loss of troops. There is a risk that someone else will take it but not very high.

Now imagine if you can get your mate to build up loads of villages for you, perhaps to co-play later. He doesn't even need to delete for you to get them.
The start up advantages of extra paladins, flags, buffs are brilliant.

Is it legal?

Here is an example...

On Casual 6
The Fiend gave Thanos (in the same tribe) 25 villas in 3 days

On Casual 7
The Fiend gave Thanos (in the same tribe) 45 villas in 2 days

To have so many spare nobles this must have been planned for a long time.

The account of The Fiend , since W44 has done nothing but provide Thanos with villages.

The rules say
§4) Accounts
Creating and/or using one or more accounts for the primary benefit of another account ("pushing"), as well as profiting from such behavior, is forbidden.

Apparently this tactic does not break the rule so feel free to use it. Personally I feel that it is cheating.

Interested if there's an official reply at all - from speaking to them both (Well before I saw this post) it's never been intended from world start but from an outside perspective it does look questionable.
