    Afk. Hunting

    Hello all.

    Maybe most of you allready know about this, but i only just discovered this recently comming to Cyrene.

    I found these mob spawns, fairly public located, where people are AFK hunting. Yes where people are hunting while not near theyr computer. The mobs spawn at the exact same spot few seconds after its killed. And the afk. Hunters only come back atleast once an hour to take a new loot pill, and then continue the grind.

    I did write few supports to MA, but didnt really get a clear answer other then they said that you have to be present while hunting.

    My question is to you all, what you think about this? is this fine, or should MA change the spawns?

    Im aware that people doing this have to be propably oveprotected in armor. But still being able to skill up in hunting while making dinner, watching TV with the misses, go to the gym ect. ?

    Cheers

    I hunt at cyrene exactly cause of these spawns. Tired of 95% caly spawns running between mobs and even mixed ones. These spawns means maximized turnover for both player n planet and can watch movie while huntin cause i dont have to move. I for one LOVE these spawns

    Do not see why this would matter, i do not see why hunting bots are bad.

    AFK or not, you're doing the same thing.

    I noticed you did alot of mang changs while i was there but do they also just spawn the exact same spot? i thought it was only the Puny mang changs, paneleon and the bile jellys.

    Whatever mate, seems senseless to me to spend ped and not even enjoy it, just to rack up a mission.

    I prefer to be there for the action myself.

    Pfff....

    I always use semi-AFK method for grinding small and medium mobs

    It is easy:
    1. Consume autoloot pill.
    2. Take your weapon and start shooting by pressing 'Toggle Auto-Use tool' assigned key
    3. Press 'Select next target' assigned key...
    When selected mob dies:
    4-999999999 Press 'Select next target' assigned key...

    Watch your video....

    After one hour consume additional autoloot pile...or calculate loot

    This method is semi-AFK and need constant control (your HP and weapon decay)

    PS Do not use in PvP-zone!

    Do you also expect someone crafting to click once, exit out of the crafting terminal, get back in it, select their bp, click once and repeat 1000 times?

    Yes thats the way i have done my low lvl irons missions on Caly aswell. I gathered a huge load of fouls and then just press NeXT target after each kill. But What im talking about here is completely AFK hunting.

    Deselct "move to target" eat loot pill and then just auto use gun. And becasue the mob spawn the EXACT same spot after u killed it, you can just just shoot and shoot for and hour or an hour and a half, if using adj. lootpill. without ever touching the keyboard or mouse.

    Crafting has allways been for afks. My question was simple if this was ok, since its basically against MAs rules. Crafting afk is not against MAs rules.

    So what is the issue here?
    Its not like they are getting free skills or anything free for that matter.
    Ma created the auto use tool exactly so people can auto use any tool. And auto loot pill is for... auto loot.

    I often watch a movie with the ava on auto shoot, and press "next target" every time the girlfriend isn't looking.
