What’s a Bot?
Bot is a generic term the community of the MMO players has given to any automated and/or game hack that gives a player an unfair advantage over other players.
How can I detect a Bot?
A Bot is programmed to do a specific tasks continuously, (e.g auto attacking nearest mobs.)
- They might have a name that doesn’t make any sense.
- They're auto attacking nearest mobs continuously.
- The suspect is in a party and the ground around them is full of non-looted items.
- They don’t interact/respond to you.
- Located in an area with a lot of mobs spawning back fast.
- Usually at the map1/map2 at low level mobs for 1 hitting.
- They repeatedly do same thing.
- Their actions are abnormal to the class of the character.
These are not carved in a stone, but are a good guidelines to watch for, when you suspect someone is a bot.
I suspect I found a Bot, what I do now?
There’s a few options for you.
- Report asap to a GS in game, so they can check and make the report if needed. (Name, map and area)
- Follow the character for a few minutes and take Screenshots from the characters actions to show why you suspect it is a bot. > Upload SS's to a image hosting site (e.g Imgur) > Send ticket.
- Use a Screen recorder to take a video from the characters actions to show why you suspect it’s a bot. > upload to Youtube > Send ticket.
