Account ID (AID)

An account id uniquely identifies an account, not only inside the database, but also in inter-server communication.

Accounts can be classified in 2 types, based on its "Gender":

  • Player account, for accounts with gender Female (F) or Male (M)
  • Server account, for accounts with gender S

For player accounts, the "Gender" information is used to determine the initial gender selection when creating a character in-game. For old client versions, where gender selection was not possible, this was the gender of all characters in the game account.

Account IDs are used to associate account-wide data with an account, such as:

In-game it is mostly used as a game id (GID).

It should not be confused with character id (CID) which identifies a character.
