It can't tell what computer your on....It tells which IP address you are using. This is designed to stop people getting someones password and then using it.

I know this cause I changed IP address and sure enough I had to re-register. And if the game didn't include an email, it would make things way more technical and confusing and then cryptic would have to spend time and money on a new system rather than on content
