Ian_x12, most commonly know as Ian is a civ player who ran CivUniverse. He has been involved in several controversies.
|First Civ Server|
|Iterations played on|
On Devoted, Ian_X12 played under the name agx123 and was a member of Vogelburg.
On CivRealms, Ian_X12 first joined Alexandria in November 2019.
- When CivUniverse was founded players who maliciously leaked other players real life personal information (doxing) were only punished with 2 week bans, which was unprecedented in the Civ community which usually permanently bans doxers. Albeit, CivUniverse's doxing ban length was increased, but no permanent bans were ever issued.
- The CivUniverse administration were noticeably lenient with who they let into their community including those who have doxed routinely and used VPNs to evade bans.
- The CivUniverse community consistently used misleading/false advertisements to promote CivUniverse, using original content from other Civ servers such as CivRealms, CivClassic, Devoted, and Civcraft.
