I am happy they have banned gold sellers, but why have they only banned 100 bots? They have banned 2800+ gold sellers or players associated with gold sellers, but only 100 bots? I have reported over 100 bots personally. Their priorities are all wrong, the bots will kill the game... All of the lower tier resources are essentially worthless due to the mass botting and it seems to me they have banned so few just for show.
There really is an infestation and they are hiding all posts about it. I have posted many times on their forum with video evidence and the post gets moved to a section other users can't read.
These bots have radar and can detect if a pvp-enabled player comes even within rendering distance and the bot automatically starts running. I found this out because I kept seeing the same person grinding rhinos every day in red zone during off hours. I saw it dying to Cougars a few times. Then I decided to flag up when I saw it dying to Cougars again and it automatically started running. I kind of followed it and it always ran southwest to the zoneline exit so I had a buddy wait in that direction and we kept killing it.
Every time the bot dies it would go to the bank, regear (in cheap T4) then come back and start killing Rhinos.
The bot is still there today despite video evidence posted to AO.
The game is not very good, I am a legendary founder and started following it in 2015. The game has gotten worse since the first betas to be honest. They are trying to please everybody and not staying true to vision.
It's turned into an amalgamation of poorly implemented features not suitable for the genre and they keep removing the things that were good, like the original openworld chests.
