One Time Teleport
One Time Teleport, commonly shortened to OTT, is a mechanic on CivRealms which allows new players to teleport to any other player a single time within the first 24 hours of their joining. OTT is useful for allowing new players to join their first nation, without having to worry about travel time. O
TT requires both the new player and the target player to approve of the teleportation. If you are new and wish to OTT to a nation, you will need a player from that nation to be online first.
First, the target player needs to invite the new player, with
Then, the new player should type
/ott <target_player_name>. The new player will be teleported directly to the target player if successful.
OTT comes with several caveats. When a new player OTTs, they lose all their items except those given to them automatically when they first join. This is to prevent alts from abusing OTT to raid or kill other players easily. Also, no notifications are sent to either player about the OTT, so some other form of communication (such as /tell) should be used to communicate instead.
It is possible to teleport between shards. The main reason to teleport to a different shard is if you want to OTT to a nation in the New World. You can also teleport to the aquanether shard, but there is not much reason to do so as there are no nations there currently.
