This is actually somewhat tricky, though not in ways that make the
scam work. One player per entity, that much is clear.

However, an entity can become a player, and this does not require em
to not already be one. It just doesn't enable em to become two
players. The act of becoming a player implies, by any sane definition
of "become," that a change of state occurs. This could mean one of two
things - first, that the old player becomes a new player, or second,
that the registration fails.

Since there is no indication in the ruleset that the action causes the
old player to deregister, I assert that a requirement for becoming a
player (which is obviously and tautologically not a requirement for
being a player) is, by the definition of the word "become," not being
a player already.

I judge CFI 102 TRUE.
