I could spend hours reporting when spammers are allowed to get out of control. I want to play not report.
Gold spammers also send messages via mailbox.
There is "nothing" good about a bot a.k.a. cheater! What a load of rubbish and suspicious. They hurt in game economy and make prices go up, not down.
EnMasse NIP IT! Please! Gold spammers were a nuisance in OB trade chat.
Easy way to stop gold spammers is, if you going to allow trail accounts make them have their own server and when they buy the game they can move to another server. also as you have to be lvl 11 to move off the starter island this will help. Gold spammers work in other mmo's as they don't have to do anything but auto run to the city and trail accounts simply play in the real realms.
Or trail accounts can be created on the main servers IF invite by an account that is already paid for, and if that trail account is a gold spammer the inviters account may also be punished.
What's a "trail account"? You said it four times, meaning it wasn't a typo.
EnMasse is doing some wrong to counter botters.
Firstly on PvP server, we turn into Outlaw to kill botters i assumes we get Infamy and we have to wait for so long to get out of it, its not worth it.
Its not our job, if EnMasse pay us to play then ok fair deal but we;re paying for this not to kill botters but to play and enjoy the game with various people/friends/meeting new people online.
Depending on how strong TERA's playerbase are, free trial should have their own server like in RIFT, but remember there were gold farmers before RIFT open up free trial so it doesn't matter at all. nice try. they're willing to spend money to make money it works.
Gold farmer will always be there unless En Masse send out a mob of GM to log into the game and get rid of all the botter themself.
Not simply blocking IP addresses and losing potential playerbase.
Writing a bot would be rather hard for Tera, since it's not your regular tab game. I honestly doubt them [filtered]s are crazy enough to write an entire new thing just to bot in one single game. Plus there's the whole thing to counter them on PvP servers. Yeah, I'm not too worried.
