Hmm..are the banned bots players back again?

Hi!

There were alot of players that got their accounts locked when it was discovered that they were using bots. I was hoping that MA would explain what was going to happen to those players, locked forever or just temporarily.

Well, I guess we will not get any explanation this time either. Guess what, their back. I met one of them at Nate's yesterday.....

No need to give out names here. I just wanted to know if anyone else had heard something about the bots situation.

For all new readers of this thread:

Marco has already responded to stop any potentially rumors. He told us that the investigation is not finished yet.

I haven't, but it sure is interesting! And yes, would be quite nice to know what will happen to the banned people. Also to show others what will happen if they do the same! Would make sence to me!

Well, the avi I met was definately heavily involved in the bots scandal. I guess MA thought that the storm had settled now, and they've decided to let'em back ingame quitely..... I got a bad feeling in my stomach when I met this so-called uber.... :rolleyes:

Hmm, I wonder if MA will ever apply the EULA when it is uber players :dunno:

If n00bs did this then I'll bet they'd be banned forever. I hope there was SEVERE punishment if these players are allowed back.

If MA need a idea for punishment if banning is not going to happen then here is one:

Each player should have their highest single skill completely nerfed to 1 and their item that holds the highest market value stripped from them.

MA could then display them in a cabinet in a prominent place as a lesson to them and a warning to others :tongue2:

And NO they NEVER get them back.

Maybe there are other interests involved, since they do not only have uber-valued-gear but also spend a LOT of money in EU (=adding lot of money into game) - and banning "customers" like that could be "bad-internal-business"!

what do you think about trial in court.
ofcourse MA won't ban ubers.


btw you are giving the answer on your own question your self.
they are just for some time bin locked.





and after a lot of thinking why do you have a problem with a hunt bot ?
if you hunt by doing it yourself or letting a bot do it.
if you lose on a hunt you lose if you win u win.

the loot the get stay's the same.

Maybe they are being given time to cash out and sell their items?

None of the ava that got locked were unbanned, and MA locked some of the wrong people aswell as not catching the worst bot abusers, stop posting stuff you know nothing about and starting new rumours

Well, if they're all back I feel that the rest of us should at least get an explanation from MA. Right now I believe that the punishment they recieved was that they're accounts were locked for a couple of weeks. Maybe they recieved further punishment, but maybe we'll never know now.

I'm the perfect player for MA, with a fat RL pay check and a family with small children. I can't play as often as I'd like but I make some nice deposits to compensate for it. I'm not sharing the illusion that I'll ever make a nice profit in this game, I'm paying for entertainment. But I rather give my money to honest players than giving them to people that have been found guilty of cheating on the whole EU community. Hey, we all know what we feel about people using steroids in sports in order to reach the top.

This was MA opportunity to show that they're serious about cheating in EU. And maybe there will be an announcement soon. Untill that happens I'll have a bad feeling every time I meet these avatars.... :(

Well, they certainly locked some innocent avi's for sure, but the avi I saw yesterday was caught red handed on the scene of the "crime"(?). So I'm not starting some rumors, just stating some facts :)

I'm wondering if we will ever see any comments from Marco on this forum after the purchase by 711. Until now I think he was very quiet, therefore don't count on any answers to soon.
And the titled should be "banned bots are back"..:)

Then he was never locked in first place, so u are starting rumours that locked people got unlocked which is not true, and you say they locked some innocent ava for sure yet you all condemn all the locked people, why you think no one can be bothered to make a comment

Did they tell you themselves that they were locked and unlocked? I highly doubt it

Well, should this be so, we at least have a deduced answer for the "Is it OK to use Bots or Third Party Apps ingame?"

The answer would seem to be Yes, but you may have to take a little fortnight off now and then.

MA really missed out on a good opportunity here to make a point, and enforce their EULA. Maybe they did enforce their EULA and Botting = 2 week ban. Not a bad life I would guess, an enforced 2 week holiday in Spain once in a while with money made in a computer game/universe. We have no official idea as MA never seem to tell us stuff like this.

Much like the Trapping ATH - that seems to be OK as well.

Hey, MindStar???

Why is this thread not locked? They are talking about cheating and things not allowed?

Please tell me what I am missing?

DS...


ps
Again, not trying to be a problem...but would like to know if the 'rules' apply to all...or just the one the mods don't agree with?
