When I saw the "hype" rating for this title, I started browsing the forum posts for some idea of what this MMO might entail. I saw a lot of positive feedback, and some hopeful speculations. However, if there is one thing I've seen plague every MMO as of late, and ESPECIALLY Korean-based MMO's, it's the massive wave of currency farmers, bots, and currency spam from sellers.
When AION was still in its beta stage, gold sellers were already in business spamming their wares, and the efforts to curb that activity were minimal at best. While I do see some MMO developers making a concentrated effort to reduce gold seller spam and bots, I am wondering how much of an effort XL Games will make towards blocking gold sellers from annoying the hell out of their subscribers, and how bad will the bot infestation be?
Of the many MMOs I've tried either as released titles or as betas, Korean-based MMOs have been the worst at maintaining the other-worldliness of their environments by not taking their subscribers seriously, and not really making a strong effort to prohibit currency spam and bots.
Has anyone seen feedback from a developer yet that makes any mention of addressing this issue?
