  1. When 'allies' bots hit my npcs, I sink them. No problem at all.
     
  2. Someone wrote "if they banned all the bot runners, 90% of the players would be banned. True. Even with the bots, losing that many players would be a disaster for the game. BP knows that, the botters know that. So. If, as BP is indicating, there is a way for them to know who is running a bot, then this debuff is a practical way to stop them..but the debuff should be for an extended period of time. All players who are winning the rewards for things like the rift, monthly, and events should just be stricken from the rewards list. It would be fairly simple to come up with a program to see what is humanly possible as far as rift speed, points accumulation, etc....If a player goes beyond that point, just take them off the rewards list. Reduce the motivation=reduction of cheating. Simple

    I WOULD hope that this system is going to be put to good use!

    3 Days doesn't seem approriate at all, however the hope is you guys have a system in place like this;

    For example the debuff will DOUBLE every time a player is detected!

    1st Time caught = 3 days
    2nd = 6 days
    3rd = 12 days
    4th = 24 days
    5th = 48 days
    6th = 96 days
    7th = 192 days
    8th = 384 days
    9th = 768 days
    10th= 1000 days and every time after that

    also change the design of the ship to something that looks ridiculous as part of the buff so they can be laughed at and shamed.

    if a 3 day debuff is really going to be the penalty for botting thousands of dragonfires ,slowdowns, amulets millions of coins and pearls someone please give me the link
     
  5. I get longer bans in chat and the forums for mentioning bots. Seems about par for the course with BP, right?

    Yes - this "Bot Announcement" is both a paradox and a joke to boot. You have just NOW detected them? Three days "punishment"? Money still rules this game. Ban them immediately for 6 months MINIMUM, and then if they get caught again - permanently delete their account! This pussyfooting around is way too lenient. Pirate ~turnip~ (read up above) called it out for what it really is. :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

    At this point they have pretty much already killed the game. And in this case I don’t mean people that bot I mean bigpoint.

    First are foremost when you make a game cost more than a large majority of people can afford you really are just asking people to cheat. When this game was simple/cheap no one cheated because there was really no benefit. As price has increased the amount of cheaters has increased exponentially. This is very obvious to most people playing for a long time.

    In my opinion, the only thing to do at this point is completely revamp the game. You’ve pretty much flooded the game with items/buffs/cannons in your attempt to chase the only thing the owners of this game have cared about since 2014. This game is dead unless bigpoint steps up and does something expeditiously.

    I’d highly recommend making it more simple, less costly, and make cheats and instant ban. At this point 90% of players don’t even play. They bot, they use programs to fight, to farm. To do everything. What did bigpoint expect?

    I see that values are developed more, problems are fixed and attract players better than that. Also, the prices of the packages are high The focus should be on that

    i liked the idea that the debuff time doubles with each offense. Run it every day.

    What about the illegal event ranking points, if nothing is done about these what is the point?

    If you really had a detection program, everybody using an external program would get caught,
    but I still see bots and warbots sailing the sea without debuffs.
    Those affected will be back on the water, when the debuff runs out,
    without any meaningful loss.
    The bots still take ranking rewards and so on, they don´t really loose anything.
    Another failed attempt, that basically tells us that using bot, won´t have any hard felt consequences.

    How do you know that the ones you speak of are bots? you talked to them in TS or Discord they tell you that they run bots? I seen boats as well running bots but not the war bots that take no damage and other things that's the one that are getting de-buffs I believe and I don't think they applied to all bots but don't know this either.
    Unless your statement that you can confirm is because you know some or saying you didn't get caught yourself to say 100% can confirm, just asking for a friend lol

    3 whole days? So...here's the real question....how often will you be running your bot detection? Every 4 days would be nice. ;)

    Well it was said they would address at end of event been said before, but like with no proof of it and will not and can't show the proof period. Like the old saying if a tree falls in the forest and nobody there to hear it does it make a sound? Saying and proving that it was done lots different and they can't.

    Real bad joke is the buff not even working properly, seen a bot used with the icons, doesn't take more damage by npc neither do less damage. So he farm like always the onyl thing working is the slow speed.
