    Default Redrafting the Buff-Botting Policy

    Currently, it is okay to buff bot at any time, except during an SP or Mothership. I've been told that players wanted to update/change the times that buff botting is allowed and when it is not allowed. If you'd like for the rules surrounding buffbotting to change, feel free to post what you would like to be changed.

    Question: What if it's an SP but you buffbot while grinding? That is, you don't attend the SP and just grind as if the SP was never there but you don't go to war.

    Old days had it where you had to town or log off your MG if PvP broke out in grind maps. Can you still buffbot during wars like that?

    Can't edit previous post, so I'll add more detail to the one before:

    I'd personally want to see where and when it is explicitly allowed or not allowed to buffbot. I'd say that it should be allowed when grinding or boss farming but not for organized PvP (SP, MS, OP, event) or for item duplication (2:25 event, AFKing in SP/MS/OP for WP).

    The problem is bots, not that it's ez enough a script can do it.

    its easy to solve


    add all buffs NPC

    he gives you all buffs include A gear air siege (so u could not fly anywhere)

    for 1 milion SPI

    its fair price

    wanna get buffed ? pay 1m and go.

    buff bots need perma ban , same way as they banned slipknot for no reason.

    I dont think buffboting is such a problem since form ragings were cuted 1/2 for other gears. Well you definetly can see those alt MGs parked high alt on every SP but not that much in the wars ... definetly seen a MG cohing himself behind the enemy lines to the backdoor map.

    But ... there is no way to get any proof on those cheaters.

    Problem is using alt gears to gather WarPoints, that goes hand in hand with things said above.

    I know there are many people, families who plays from one place so making it IP dependant is not a way but there has to be some sort of a solution. Definetly would help to take down sandboxie.

    I am curently happy with buffbot policy as we can´t improve it and if you do make it more strict, you will not catch those cheaters anyway.

    I mean GM needs the name of both gears ... thats the problem. I remmember older GMs were okay to know just one name and they were able to take actions.

    Block the sandboxie, and solve 90% of the problems.

    You do realize this is practically impossible, right?

    First, the developers would have to come up with a reliable means of detecting if the game was sandboxed. People then respond by modifying the sandboxed environment so slightly that the detection fails, or they patch the detection logic to ignore it.

    Say they manage to pull it off, and Sandboxie no more. People spin up local VMs instead, or use separate computers.

    The devs then decide that an arbitrary number of concurrent logins (say, 3) from the same IP address is indicative of alting. Bye bye LAN parties, and people intent on their shenanigans will use VPNs instead.

    Or they could spin up Amazon EC2/Microsoft Azure/etc. instances in different datacenters all over the world and install the game client on each...

    Any client-side security measures will always turn into a game of walls and ladders.
