Bots, Hacks and RMT

#1Shatter123Posted 9/7/2013 1:40:05 AM(edited)
How are square so unable to deal with these? Are they just unable to counter these obvious things like they were in FFXI or do they simply not care?

I've seen blatant botting, hacking and mass gold spammers filling up my whisper screen, the kind that would never be tolerated in many free to play mmos.

FFXI was known as a haven for botters and hackers, seems it's happening again here.

Here's a video of people warp hacking and botting fates.

Warp hacking (no this is not rubber banding).

Mining with warp hacks (see the stealthed miner appear and dissapreaing from nodes?).

Speed hacking with a stealth and botting.

RMT spam worse than any free to play mmo.

Square are usesless all around, server issues going on into the second week, rmt everywhere, botters and blatant hacking all out in the open. It's like FFXI all over again, at least there are no HNM this time because Square are so terrible it woule be best bot wins again if they did.

The economy is going to be destroyed under the weight of all the bots abusing a company unable to stop them.

PVP is going to be so hilariously bad when they add it, wil just be best hacks wins.

I think the priority up till now is ensuring that people are able to play in the first place.

But I agree with you, that a simple function like right clicking on a name and "report spam" would cut down the rmt.

You go to attack someone, oops he teleported out of reach.
You go to attack someone, oops he activated flee runs in attacks and runs out before you can react.

If they add any kind of capture the flag or any objectives to pvp? Instant win for the position hackers! Skill unmatched!

In FFXI it was ridden with botting and hacking. All the best "elite" guilds were the ones that botted and cheated and if you didn't do that you lost hard. The cheaters would stand in town wearing the gear they got from cheating and the legits just complained to Square...who did nothing. Seems history is repeating?

Server issues still (to the point they were forced to start giving refunds), botting, hacking and RMT everywhere. Seems they aren't dealing with it that well huh?

Much like the complaints about AFKs, it shouldn't be hard to do something about RMTs spamming shouts every second for extended periods of time. Heck, have a GM run an eye over the chatlog of the major cities for every server, and simply ban every account that spams a gold ad.

the refunds were only to people who bought the PSN digital version in Europe, because they weren't able to link their accounts so they couldn't play, period.

and it's sony giving the refund, not square.
