    The afk hunting and bots do need to stop, its pretty ridiculous at this point. Don't need to name the avatars that have been filmed doing it, but the one in particular thats funny is the guy afk hunting and cycling to a resto chip, fap, and then targeting anything nearby, in this case he happened to target an avatar.... Thats not F spam or a macro, thats third party software. Its on Mindark to do something about it.

    I have in the past contacted live support (in that case was a botter on Ark) they appeared in moments watched the bot take the exact predicted path from revive to mob or mob to next mob, moments later the bot disappeared and has never been seen again. So yes with proof they will act. But they need proof.

    As for whether it affects other players..ofc it does, botters not only skill, they also sell sweat, the excessive amounts they market is part of what has depressed the sale price. So for all genuine sweaters there is a negative effect. Their game play is damaged because they have to work longer to get their ped. Since many new players rely on sweat to help them get started this contributes to poor player retention

    Yes sweat is free, but it contributes to the economy so any botting affects us all

    yes, botting is a problem, but as mentioned in other threads over many years, it's only one aspect of how things are done that causes rce type issues mentioned here... You also have avatars shared like a mule by a societies, a sort of society closet so to speak... then you have Planet Partners and moons dropping thousands of peds in to avatars that are 'playing' just like you and I that can drastically affect markup with their 'secret' or not so secret avatars, little field trips that cause players to not want to use any other space travel services, etc. If Mindark wants to do some massive clean up bots are only part of the problem, and honestly are only a tiny, itty bitty part of the problem in the bigger picture.

    LMFAO if you think that's bad you should check out the desert and redu farming bots on ark mining unamped in straight lines


    it's quite insane.

    support cases go unaswered, DMs to live-support ingame do nothing. ND is basically MIA so there's no enforcement on RT at all (imo just delete the fucking planet already ffs.)

    Makes you wonder where certain players that list on this forum get so much redulite and bismuth.. of course they are alts though np there..
    "If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected."

    Ok, let me clarify this explicitly: I do not condone botting, cheating or otherwise exploting game mechanics in order to gain unfair advantage over other players. I have been in this game long enough to remember the old issues and how much damage these inflicted to the game.

    What I mean is that when we complain about MA not taking action against presumed botters, on the basis of what they wrote in the Terms, we should first make sure that we understand the Terms in the same way as MA do. If they use the word "interfere" (of which I am not sure btw), this is probably not by chance but because they attach a specific meaning to it.

    Take care,
    BBB
    I'm going with this, then i will go over there behind that heavy table. :p
