Hi everyone.

I've been playing on iRO for like 5 years and always there are a lot of bots. I found a topic called [Call in an Airstrike] where players can report on bot location, but obviously it isn't working (maybe just for awhile). There are private servers with bot check system or something like this, and it's working. Why administration can't (or don't want) to take some real action?

English is not my mother tongue, so I'm sorry for any mistakes. Also maybe there was similar post but I didn't find them.

Because people are lazy to do manual- manual leveling, manual farming, manual vending and so on and on and on....

 

It will never end unless the one who is using third party program changes. Checks are bothersome it will never work. What will happen to those legit vendors if they'd be kick out of the server for not being able to answer/respond to the check? The bot sweeping is really lacking now. For example, Thor's low TI is infested with bot party and it's been there for weeks and I think somebody already reported that but unfortunately there is no action. I don't even post to that thread unless otherwise I have the feel for it. Let the bot infestation continue. :heh:

You're complaining about bots. They dont even ban known and obvious cheaters in WoE. Just chill and play the game the way it is meant to be played /gg

Is not they cant, they dont want, their excuse is "the 3rd party program user will make more bots, so why waste time in ban those old bots?", besides what is the point to remove right now? is already a very low population and the only things they can bot (value) is Bomb set ingredients, High Crystals / Raydrics cards, every day you can see 2~3 bot party (as i count are 5~7 bots per party) in GH, DBs and strawberrys.

Honestly never had any issues with bots on this game.

 

Beyond a few maps infested with them I hardly ever see them and they KS less than real players...

 

I'm used to having to deal with far worse than that.

 

Most bots on Lineage II would KS anywhere that was not open field. Since open field exp was less than ideal compared to dungeons pretty much every single spot was botted.

 

Most of the time you only had one choice, kill them one way or another which you could, it was an open PVP game. But killing non-hostile characters carried heavy penalties.

 

If you were lucky they were stupid botters and they would just stay there dead for hours until they noticed.

 

Most of the time they were scripted to return to the same place and resume killing so yeah....get rid of them over and over again.

 

Some even went farther and were scripted to attack any player that came within range of them AND also return to the spot automatically. Fun times...

 

I really don't mind RO bots.

The airstrike threads do more to warn botters what areas to avoid rather than actually get rid of them. But people are too lazy to use the ticket system to report, so it's a neverending battle in the botters' favor.

GH  5~7 bots per party - I done it before, it is not bot

it is 1 ranger, 1 AB on first 2 tab, then 5 auto follow (/nc /ns command) to farm high crystal

mainly ranger, if need, alt tab a hot key to mass heal or mass kyle and alt tab back, it is managable by 1 pc

Bot can simply just kill and tp, there is no need for them to walk

But it is really killing PC and i havnt done it for 2 months .. i have better target

They nuked a lot of bots a few months ago.

 

Archer Skels doubled in price, along with other  seemingly cheap items and cards :U AK Cards have as well, but that's partly because there's not been an AK TI in awhile... I say unless they're causing a huge detriment to players leave them alone :I Yeah it's illegal but I want my 10m archer skells and 80m AKs back XD

This is something people of lesser minds will never be able to understand.

 

 

Bots have lessened to a point where they help more than harm the game. If bots aren't in popular leveling spots, TI, instances, events or woe/pvp, I say just let them be. It actually helps the economy. More supply of mats, cards means cheaper items. Even in the real world, this is how it works. Everything is mass produced (and in most cases, labor is cheaper) in order to bring prices down. There are other more serious exploits and cheats worth focusing on as mentioned above.
 

As for vending bots, it's definitely a sign of in lack of quality of life features. It's definitely easier to vend bot than to relog and set-up shop and get disconnected every now and then.

i think an AFK mode (where a character automatically loots and kills a monster but never leaves its spot) would be nice. Just saying.

Let's just say a complete set of party. AB/Stringer/HW need to say more? :heh: I don't really hate it but it just kills the meaning of the game. How about find a party and do it with them? I know, less people in Thor is doing low TI not comparable to Chaos'.

Not that party I guess. It's a party composed of the same prefix on their ign. :heh:

 

You won't see much camper party in Thor it's not a thing there. Thor's Low TI is like a tour. :heh;

I think a lot of bots have disappeared recently. The typical poison spores bots are mostly gone for some reason. 
Obviously, this is not so great, as staple supplies become quite very expensive now. Instances loot also got cheaper. It's kind of hard to enjoy the game knowing you need to farm your own consumables. 

 

Expensive blossoms, expensive strawberries, expensive cards, expensive BMX3 = RIP Leveling.
