Why on earth would you put a limit on the number of bots you can report?! This makes it seem like bot protection than caring about the actual player base experience. I just can’t fathom why you would restrict your player base from reporting bots that y’all claim to be “taking care of” and “taking seriously with 0 tolerance policy on botting.” Which is just laughable at this point since I’ve been reporting the exact same ones for over a month that’s blocking game play on Zosma. I can’t even change servers without losing everything I’ve paid for.
I understand F2P games will ALWAYS have issues with bots especially when you fail to implement secure login but come on man It’s now been over a month of me reporting the same bots with photos and vids.
As far as I can see some of the spammers I have reported earlier were banned but to my surprise some of them I have reported 2 or 3 weeks earlier weren’t. (Accounts spamming Area Chat every day, all the day…) :o(
And yes, of course, I found this after I had to unblock somebody when I met the 100_blocked_IDs limit.
You are absolutely right.
On the other hand when I report a spammer I help the community by the reporting itself AND I help myself with the bundled blocking. The second part is very important too. At least for me.
If they create incentives for reporting bots then it’d start feeling like mandatory content and/or like they were pushing the responsibility off onto the players. This is why there are no rewards for reporting bots. They spoken on the topic and stated that they’ve considered such systems, but have decided to avoid them for now.
imo, the simple solution is to remove accounts from block lists automatically once they are banned (and perhaps increase the limit.)
