Is it just me? or are the spambots not spamming a single word? Around Prontera 127, 62.. no mute sign either.

I don't complain. I'm actually glad of it.

They've been like that for a few days now. Hopefully it will last a while longer.

I'm not sure if this is the GM's job or a defect on the bot seller's side.

I saw this morning that we got this antispam thing with the last update from update client. It seems to work as intended, for now at least. Glad to see this improvement!

If so, then I applaud the GM team for implementing it. I just hope they don't decide to make -_-load of pubs.

There are some fun things we're working on right now, there are still some quirks to iron out, but hopefully you guys will be seeing less and less spam.

Prontera hasn't been this beautiful and peaceful in a long time. The silence brings a tear of joy to my eye.

I prefer to see them with open chats (Or none at all) than spamming the hell out of everything.

The thing about this feature is that it probably requires an occasional update here and there to prevent "loopholes" on the filter. Spammers were starting to use VVVVVV instead of the normal WWW. Didn't take the GM's long to implement an update for that loophole though.

It doesn't. That is the beauty.

Edit: If well coded, it doesn't require updates. (Have to add that bit)

I had to wait for a new patch update before it blocked some of the newer spammers last night though.

GuardianTK: If you check the filter, you'll see it automatically detects the kind of loopholes you mentioned. ;)

Oda: Thanks a lot! /no1

Yeah...I don't know how to do that. I just know that the last few remaining spammers from last night didn't get blocked until I updated my client.

Told you we were working on something.

There are some more ideas on the drawing board and in the pipe as we speak so stay tuned.
