You don't know what you're talking about.

MAC address is at no point exposed via internet.
VPN usage can be detected only if it's public well known one.
Linking IP addresses - ok, maybe. But one IP is always shared by many users - this is simply how internet works.
They do have private and public VPN detection and enforce it actively. I have tested multiple accounts across paid and unpaid VPNs over the last 6 months. Don't tell me what you think you know about what I actually know. It's a complete waste of everyones time.

If there's a mod they can close this thread, absolutely pointless to continue the 'discussion' at this point.

Understandable.

If this is the only reason, be advised that a MAC address is easy to change, even repeatedly (the particular method/s/ depend on your operating system).
Thanks - yeah it would just get too complicated switching between multiple MAC addresses running from the same computer, with different IP addresses for each. Honestly just easier to get a separate PC.

Perhaps OP is not an IT expert (it is not a shame) – but sorry, you seem to be lacking some information, too.

It can be detected remotely. Btw, in many intranets the network administrator limits what device can be connected via the MAC address detection.
But one IP is always shared by many users - this is simply how internet works.
Definitely not. (On the contrary, the real internet is working just the opposite.) There are two possible kinds of IP addresses: fixed public IP address and the internal one. Fixed public IP address is globally assigned to a particular device, internal one is assigned only in the subnetwork (nowadays, usually temporarily via DHCP server). Originally, all IP addresses were of IPV4 type, fixed and public and every device had its own unique address. As Internet grew, a shortage of addresses appeared. So such a solution was applied where some address were declared for internal use in various intranets only; then the same address can be used for many devices and consequently, all the devices are publicly visible under the one address of the intranet gateway. As it did not help after some years, a new concept of IPV6 addresses was introduced when all the addresses are obligatorily public and fixed.
So nowadays
– If you have IPV4 address only, you can have a (fixed) public or only an internal one (yes, true, the majority of users has only an internal one)
– If you have IPV6 address too (definitely not rare), it is fixed and public.

Well, it depends.
a) Do you need to switch the addresses? Is it not sufficient just to assign a new one?
b) For example, under Linux/Unix the MAC address change is just one command in the shell (command line).

You're not going to like device fingerprinting.

To change your name legally in my country costs like 30 EUR (+new documents).
It's done within a day.

You could change your name to Max Powers, open new bank account and you're good to go :)
After you stop playing the game just change it back and it's as simple as that :)

You change your provider, buy/trade in for a different computer and you're good to go...
