    " the Sears of online gaming"......that is the best summary I have seen to date buddy...............
    ..........Sears in Canada are GONE.....................after heavy "MERGING".

    Only stands to common sense that if you add the Bots from 2 servers together you get MORE BOTS.
    You can really tell who spends for $kill and chase$ rank in this post.
    ...ENJOY what you can in this ONCE great game.........
    ...IN MY HUMBLE OPINION...............

    Ok - So this thread has not been updated for 2 months!

    The reason for this is quite simply that most people have accepted the fact that bots are now part and parcel of this game and will always be with us, and they have either quit or play in the knowledge bots are not just an element of the game now.

    Going by physical observations of the maps i suspect around 70% of the playing population now bot in one way or another. The point of this post is to ask if someone could provide bot information in this thread such as , what they do, where you can get them and what to avoid etc. The reason for this is that 30% of the playing population is currently at a significant disadvantage and in order to make it a fairer playing field could bot information be provided here so that players can then make an informed playing choice.

    Now yes now i know a CM is going to respond and say botting is against the t&c's blah blah blah, but come on get real, no one has been banned for 4 years now! No one even bothers to complain about it any longer. It is now just a part of the game that we all need to live for both the developers and the players.

    The purpose of these posts would not be promote botting (the game does that by itself) but more about allowing all players the same information to make an informed choice and also to help keep the playing community safer by steering them away from more potentially dangerous sites as players currently risk doing.

    I think its now time to take out heads of the sand and be able to speak freely about bots and what they do for this game and then allow players to make safer decisions for themselves.

    Thanks,

    Dark

  3. Na, I don't think we need to be posting bot information here in the forum. If players want this information they can search it them selves.

    I am a firm believer that dark orbit actually is involved in selling subscriptions for bots but pretends it's against them.

    The T&C clearly states this is not allowed. It would be nice to see a ban surge happen. I'd prefer a "DELETE" surge.

    Unfortunately a delete surge would now end the game as to the sheer percentage of players who bot, so its very unlikely to happen, especially as the vast majority of players have stopped asking for it, hence the very quiet thread.

    Surely it would be better for players to be advised and pointed towards the safer places to search instead of sites in which they could be hacked or get virus's etc. Part of having a players community is about helping keep that community safe and supported.

    Cant disagree that the T&C's states its not allowed but then again those words dont have an awful lot of weight behind them when your actually in the game watching 70% of the playing community running around botting!

    live in the real world guys, the bots will NEVER be removed they get too much income from them,
    and if you look at the events quests, they are all biased towards the botrs, (cheats).
    they promote this game as a pvp game (ha ha ha, a cheats game more like ).
    so just expect to be killed off the events and don't expect any rewards, because the cheats get them, as usual.
    one last word, don't bother with support, they just don't give a monkeys.
     
  6. At the end of the day; the best way to stop cheats is to make what they do useless. Most of them do it to get a strong ship because Uridium is expensive so the most simple solution is to make Uridium cheaper, but there is a few other ways I could think of, like;

    * Stop making missions repetitive in a map that is known to be used for botting.
    * Force players to move map often.
    * Make PvP better again so people actually want to do it.
    * Make a downloadable client because that will stop cheats immediately.
    * Get help from a third-party to remove them, from another big company like Valve who wiped all their cheats from games pretty much immediately.

    I mean that's all I got so far :D I guess you could also just accept it like you have been lately. But honestly banning them is not worth it in my opinion, I think you should just make using the bot software impossible. Maybe get a game developer to download it to see whats causing the issue?
    That's not why they wont be removed. It's more that a large amount of player base uses them.

    It would be telling to see how many 'top 100' players have been running 20+ hours per day. Even more telling is how many top 200 accounts have changed email addresses multiple times and logged in from different countries.

    But its cool my son got a noob account and went back to his steam account as just doing the starter missions in lowers had him irritated as ships were skimming aliens all around him before he could shoot them. Nothing like the gate running leos, venoms and spearheads when you enter a map. But the really funny thing was when he saw UFEs popping aliens while home from school. They just play all day.

    Nothing is done. Nothing has been done and nothing will be done about cheaters. Been that way since the first autolock and group attack program came out.

    I ask all the CM's if they play and the answer i get is YES from all of them.....and even though they are only CM's one would think that if they would report unusally activity to the MODS or DEV's then something would be done its almost like the CM's dont see anything wrong or they already know nothing will be done, Oh well this game is still cheaper than me going to the Bar so i am still here

    Many mods play... Ask yourself why its so secret who they are online and why they do nothing about clans running tools/apps.

    And when you shake your head as it comes to you, place your credit card/gift card back in your wallet. If these players get free uri and dont have to waste money on items we have to pay for? Why are we paying?
