I propose that it should be legal to feed your homunculus through automated means.

Why? Because although it's currently illegal, the rule is not enforced. A rule that is not enforced should not be a rule at all.

Case #1:
Spoiler


Case #2:
Spoiler


Why is it that we reward those who respect the rules with nothing but sleepless nights while the ones who violate them--even brazenly, and in public!--are allowed to reap all the benefits, safe in the knowledge that they'll never face retribution?

This isn't right. But it doesn't have to be this way. Legalize auto feeding.

Something to help the cause:

kRO added a client-side autofeed for Homunculi with their recent Homunculus revamp.

So they clearly aknowledge feeding Homunculi being super tedious.

 

See to 0:50 ~ 1:00 to check out this feature.

 

It's also not like this would really automate gameplay, because the places where you afk your Homunculus (basically: Ant Eggs, OD2) are filled with mobs of such a low level that the Genetic doesn't profit from it at all.

I went to OD2 with a 100 Gene and 99 Dieter, by the time the Dieter hit 150 the Genetic was only 103. Definetly not what I'd really call leveling.

Autofeed is still a thing even with the recent anti-cheat system. Anyway, let's say that autofeed does get legalized, how does one even get their hands on it? Wouldn't this open up a can of worms for other cheats? What are you encouraging exactly?

Ideally we'd push for the update and have it in game. 

 

TBH though if people are going to cheat, they'll do it regardless of whether autofeed becomes legalized or not. 

 

IMO if we get the UI updates before any other content updates (like the homunculus/pet, refinement, etc.) I'd be 420% stoked.

You lose loyalty points when you don't feed it and it's starving, if the homunculus has enough loyalty points already then you can have it survive on 'starving' for a while (many hours).

I'm all up for having it updated in the game, but as for legalizing use of other programs to "autofeed", that's where I won't agree on legalizing it.

It's already practically legal, but wouldn't it be nice if you didn't have to choose between principles and expediency? The current reality is that while autofeeding is officially illegal, they won't seriously pursue anyone using it, and there's absolutely no chance of being banned. I've seen many people, even reputable forum users whom I respect, doing it.

All I really want is for the staff to clarify their position, instead of projecting the illusion that the rule is enforced when it isn't.

Do ppls actually get suspended if they are caught or reported to autofeed their homunculus? When afk leveling I saw many ppls doing auto-feeding but no one seemed to be punished.

I mean, you'd have to basically post a video of you doing it while claiming to bot. Regular bot-checks can be false positives because when a GM shows up to interrogate an afking Alchemist they are likely to be... afk. Using an AI to control the homun in the first place is itself is already botting IMO.

 

I knew of people who were autofeeding with a lego set on a basic programmable timer when homun first launched. New auto-clicker programs make it even easier now. Auto-clickers shouldn't be groundbreaking to most people. If you've ever played Ragnarok Clicker, you probably already have one.
