This is the first game I’ve seen who banned IP ranges to fight bots, There are many solutions on this topic:
- Bots usually use pre-written programs for automation
- You can easily check the game files with the Easy Anticheat program. Those who have replaced their configs can be banned.
- There is another easy solution which you can hire GMs to ban bots as they always use the same patterns in game.
Using a populated IP range doesn’t indicate any problem as many players use ping forward apps for better gaming experiences.
Or ignore the community whole because no one knows how to kill a game as much as you do.
