Is anything being done to combat bots?

Sadly I removed faction chat from the 'All chat tab', I missed something great =(.

I was watching a bot practice a 'chat speech' in the dungeon finder. He was shouting on the channel things like "Hello, do you have the time?" or "Can I meet you at the party tonight?" ...literally line after line of sample chat speech to get around the apparent check for chat as a bot identifier.

 

I've also seen them in region chat doing the "111" or "1", each bot checking in by chatting things like that. It's bad.


This whole bot situation needs to be cleaned up. It's disgraceful and embarrassing.

I said it in a post way back that i have never played a game with so many bots to roam free in a MMO. 

 

I have played most mmo based games and this is embarrassing.

 

Arena bots for example i do not even pvp anymore only to do dailies for my zen beans then leave because tag you always end up with bots in your'e team and afk.

Now there poping up in pve everywhere.

 

You really need to focus on fixing this NCSOFT instead of focusing on pushing out content patches.

This game is starting to not get fun anymore.

Simple answer NOPE, 1 gm that can just spend some time like 2-3 hours in game per server each week can wipe all BOTS but ncsoft is not doing anything

I have reported these same spammers, many times in game, oh but wait , i can't because "Subject not found". I can put them in my blocklist, but what's the point? they can still spam me with requests, They have been there for weeks, not just days, without being taken care of. I ended up sending a ticket with the names and i only got the generic response, but i log in today to find they are still there and now i have 8 of them spaming me for friend requests.  Please ban them already!

Does this happen at low level maps? I've never had a friend req from them and crossing my fingers I never have to deal with this.

 

Sorry about it, it's kinda sad

Well was fun whilst it lasted. Yesterday's ban wave hit and end game queue was relatively bot free. Now that's what BnS was supposed to be like. Log in today however, and it seems the roaches have multiplied again. 

 

So question, is there any possible way to incorporate some sort of human/bot differentiating program, to at least combat the bot problem specifically in cross server queues? For example, such as CAPTCHA? Yes it would be mildly inconvenient for us actual humans however it's a small price to pay for bot free grouping.

 

Especially in end game instances, and even in arena.

I guess you could say it's at low level maps, since i don't have a single chatacter at level cap, and i'm just leveling different characters.

Exactly, i get they want to advertise but i don't get why it's so invasive to the point some people feel like it's game breaking

They must really hate gamers...Like don't they have some humanity left in them? Arent the bot farmers also gamers?  They should not get this crazy it's obnoxious and violating. I don't blame NCsoft because how do you combat this plague? 

 

I also noticed that if these farmers try to friend you once and you hit endgame 45, they still harass you because somehow your name is in their database.

What i don't get is how they get the players names in game, specially since i get the feeling they are not on the same server as me, it's the only way the message i get "subject not found" when i try to report them makes sense to me.

It doesn't matter where you are, even in arena pvp I still get them every 5 seconds to 30 minutes it's annoying as hell. I get them each and every day. I can't believe I have to deal with this.

Probably the Character Search.

 

The problem is that you can block characters, but not the account. The friend requests are the account names, while the block list is for character names. The "subject not found" appears because there is no character with that name, only the account name, which cannot be blocked. Confused yet?

 

And the fact that the same accounts are sending repeated friend requests means they're not banned yet.
