BLOCK LIST LIMIT ???

Recommended Posts

So umm not sure how this does not get added with the 2 other anti-spammer initiatives.

Does the player community need to color you pictures with rainbows on how bad the idea of only allowing 50 blocks is ?

 

In fact this should have been implemented prior to those other 2 (chat level limit and reporting level restriction).

 

Your band-aids are too small for the massive hemorrhage that is the gold seller spam. Maybe go ask Arena-Net how they are doing such a better job at containing this ? They do have the same Publisher right ? I mean sure an occasional goldseller gets through but it is very small amount compared the the non-stop cesspool of spam the chats have all turned into. 

 

Please continue to give us better tools to combat this epidemic of ass-hattery.

 

20 days until Black Desert Online Beta2 hits, i need to decide which game i prefer, if this game fixes this horrible spam issue then i am fully determined to support it.

Block limit of 50 is too easy to reach in the current spamer situation, especially when each dodgy gold site generates a number of spam users, per day. I only started blocking a couple of days ago and I've already hit the 50 block limit

I kid you not, 2 days ago the spammers hit faction chat with a vengeance, i filled my block list, and decided all those in it were over a week old. So i unblocked all of them.... i then proceeded to block/report all the new faction chat spammers.... I said Eff this after i got to 36 spammers and the chat was still filled with spam.

Whoever thought that putting the limit of 50 was good enough must not have played the game.  What a joke!

Anyone that's played more than 2 MMOs know that gold sellers will always be a thing. They're like roaches when you live with A roommate that keeps food out. Why on earth did they think it would be a good idea to have A limit? Especially one so small, 

Is it me or are the gold sellers really hitting this game hard?

just make a new chat tab without the region and faction chat -.-"

best solution for now but bad when you need something from faction like insignia farming or pvp

 

Many people actually want to lurk in chat, it's part of feeling like being in a big MMO community. Blocking chat channels severely limits that, with the only channel that's not affected by gold spam being the /s chat

They're going to make the faction/regional chat level 10+, so it should atleast be harder for bots to spam for now.

So hey, atleast they listened to us about something!

We really need unblock that limit, is impossible play with spammers/bots and make a new chat tab is not a solution.

10+? they can get 10 levels in non-time...and if they reach 10 and there is no GM to ban them and start again..we are just punishing our own "players"

Did the same thing - cleared my full block list in the hope that some of these had gone away, with the intention of blocking new ones - Nope, all there.

Filled up the block list straight away, then just removed faction chat.

This 50 limit should never have been there in the first place. NC are an experienced organisation and must have known this would happen. Their half measures in countering it makes me wonder if they have connections with some of these gold sites.

HUH ? ? ? ? ? ? 

 

Umm there are bots all over the place beyond level 10, the chat spam will be exactly the same as it is now.

 

If i am wrong i will make a video of sucking a lemon and post it.

I knew they were going to do this, they did it to Aion.
First it's level 10, then it's level 20. Then you can't whisper until level 10 and level 20. 
All the while the bots are reaching these level caps with EASE. It takes what, 3 days to get to max level here? 

Why won't they just remove the limit? This only annoys actual players.

Agree with you 100%

Too bad NCsoft is acting like amateurs.

Here's another scam visible in the chat window.

I hope no one falls victim.

This thread was about the old 50 player block limit that kept getting filled up within minutes of logging into the game because of the spammers.  Second, there's already a sticky about scammers.  And third:
