All these top viewed streamers that are promoting gold selling sites should be perma banned from the game period.

They are now finding ways so we can't block them. On old man cho server (don't know about the others) there is a bot called WWW.AYWGAMES.COM that is unblockable. It's now officialy impossible to chat on Faction chat, and they are spamming LFG as well. This is getting out of hand, we don't have a block list long enough for all of them and now some are even finding ways to be unblockable.

if there is a law to prevent selling gold in game. shot down all the websites would be great. Punish all the gold selling website owners as drug dealers.

So you can't right-click and block them? Technically a loophole within code i guess. Wow

It has been getting worse at an exponential rate. I predict by next week almost all of the spam bots will be un-blockable. 

 

Way to go Ncsoft.

Way.

To.

Go.

*slow claps*

 

 

Oh, wait, but don't worry everyone. They are "looking into it". Pfft.

It might be an ASCII key which looks like the dot or maybe coming from a different localization of the client?

I got my blocklist filled up in second day of game play, i think.

 

So, 24 hours ago, I got really fade up with all these in-your-face spammers and wanted to check if BnS team had responded to my previous spam reports. I went into removing few and to my utter disappointment, they were still spamming like hell.

 

We as players really need a solution for this crap.

 

I see there are BnS game streamers with 10k viewers promoting gold selling sites with their own coupon codes. I'm starting to think that BnS doesn't have any ToS term to block these sellers.

 

well if streamers is advertising it report it to the dev team so they can ban them or sue them depending on what the law says about promoting illegal activities.

Right now the options seem to be to either not use the chat system at all (since every chat is spammed) or... well... don't use the chat system at all (since there is so much spam that chat cannot be read anyway).

 

MMO's without chat suck.

People should start realizing that reporting bots won't make a difference, that's just plain stupid thinking that way.

Best thing to do atm: Remove region chat. It will make it a bit easier.

 

It's not just region chat, Its, region, party finder, faction, local. pretty much everything except for clan. You are out of your mind if you think everyone should close down all of there channels of communication just because NCsoft is Philandering as usual. I have spent a lot of hard earned money on the game already in hopes that it would be different this time. Guess I was wrong. Once an NCSoft, always an NCSoft.

 

I mean seriously, anyone spending money on this game *SHOULD* be pissed off.

The twitch thing really pisses me off too. Why would anyone want to ruin a game they're playing?

Faction chat is currently overrun and unusable, as well as LFG. The LFG bots are unblockable and the faction bots create new characters every 2 minutes so it's impossible to block them all, they just show back up again

I sent in a complaint - actually more of a request/question about can the 50 player block be raised - and got a lovely but vague non-answer saying they'd investigate "possible violation of rules" lol. Really? Aren't we past the investigation point yet?

 

Unfortunately, I don't think raising the blockable player limit will do much because I'm sure there is a database limit they can handle and it is likely lower than the volume of spammers anyway. It'd just be a band-aid.

 

I agree with the comment earlier about regex (or any other fairly simple lines of code - unless the game design somehow makes this hard).

I'm really glad they're on top of it. Same thing - whatever aygames is doing makes him/her/it unblockable.
