:boss: :boss: :boss: SINCE THIS THREAD IS STICKIED I AM GOING TO PUT NEW PLAYER REPORTS OF BOT/AFK FARMING OFFENDERS :boss: :boss: :boss:

Boss, Any chance you could update title to reflect that this is where we can report?

Also I feel we should make a clear set of rules for reporting until this game gets some sort of true system. Below could be a standard report post that would be copy and pasted and re-used by any player to make a report of someone cheating.

ALSO Liberator or other MODS not sure what you guys think about this but any chance you could make some members only have access to view this thread or one like it?? that way we could post these reports for you guys to see and investigate. I would imagine onces the game gets more popular we do not want people making these reports for simple little things that could just be a simple player confrontation... This would waste time... If we had say 10 or so members that you the DEVS would trust to have access to a report thread. Then that could be the start of some sort of system at least...

now to make a report :)

****Player Generated Exploit/cheating Report****

-Server Info: US Server 1 Diamond Shard

-Report made by( In-game name): Scheidy and Scheat

-Report made on (Accused Offender): Luskmomo

-Location in game: Cave north of Respite Village

-Summary of exploit and/or Cheating: Player Luskmomo was caught once again AFK farming using a third party program to auto heal etc. Screenshots provided will prove the accused was doing what was stated. I hope as a 2nd(really 3rd) time offender that this account could be punished more harshly as it is high lvl and clearly has had an unfair advantage to other players... Sent email to support was told staff was busy :) and could not log on to deal with cheater.

Also a method to use and see if someone is a possible AFK bot user you can check their stats.... If the Skills used stat is WAY out of whack compared to the total Online time then it is a certain indicator of cheating.. Although this method is not proof but can be used as an indicator... Just look at screens below to see example of Luskmomo stats compared to Scheats stats... LOL


-Evidence or proof of Report (use screens or other means to show proof)

Sure I'll update the title.

I'm afraid you triggered me Scheidy. He's brasilian, therefore he speaks portuguese, not spanish... I'm portuguese and speak portuguese :)

Good idea!

Seeing as this is a recurring offense by a negative influence within the community it is my opinion that the Luskmomo character should be deleted from US1 Server.

Agreed with the deletion of the account... Also Boss haha I am sorry I got the language wrong :X haha I am about the most non Bi-lingual individual in the world so I just guessed the language was spanish. My bad bud.

Also I think we should make a NPC named Luskmomo that roams around bluevale dressed as a homeless lvl 1 character and says I was caught cheating and have been sent into Exile!!! Of course this is only if the account gets banned... Lol joking...

No problem dude, sorry for the reaction, it's a common misconception that portuguese/brazilian people speak spanish and that Portugal = Spain, so it's an easy trigger to me :P

I actually like your idea, I'm all for that! Let them cheaters know what's comming!

Came here to say this. Unfortunately, since it's on the US servers, as a level 1 char I can't get to arden so I can't record it. Lib please, his ban is long overdue.

Good!


Tho... I really believe it would be the best solution to just disable the auto-attacking.
I know ben mentioned that it won't stop botting, but...

This auto-attacking makes it simple for EVERYONE to afk farm and if they learn to use a third-party programm which keeps
pressing 1 button, they can farm forever.

But real botting, with scripts and stuff is a complete other story.
Even the biggest MMOs have troubles finding and detecting bots.
There are way less players able to do so.

So disabling auto-attack would prevent like 80%-90% of the players from "botting".
And real botters will be hard to catch.

Just my 2 cents... :confused:

Not sure if you actually mean auto-attack or auto-targeting. Auto-attack is 80% of the combat in this game. You click on the mob and your character strikes until it's dead. Auto-targeting 'tho, enables an auto-counter-attack without the press of a button, that's what's wrong in my opinion, that's what's triggering the AFK Farming. Without auto-targeting, players would just stand there being hit to death without fighting back, therefore without killing anything.
