  1. How does boting system works?

    Yo buttercup, they do use hwid bans. Its funny how after I state they do, you counter my statement without googling it yourself. It's usually for more extreme cases like altering memory. And I don't need a lesson in its effectiveness. No one is arguing against it or for it except for you. I stopped reading there >.<
  2. How does boting system works?

    yo, I'm not arguing bots are easy to get rid of. I'm arguing that NCsoft doesn't apply enough effort into combating them. There is a difference. And there is no reason to be rude and telling people they don't know what theyre talking about or they shouldn't speak. Or whatever it is you have been saying. At this point I just skim through your posts. Many game companies use hwid bans btw.... Wow, archeage, ffxiv, eve and guess who else - Lineage 2.... L2 hasn't been for bots for a long while however. They don't use delayed bans. They don't manual ban. There are bots in dwarven area that have been there since week 2 or 3. There are videos of dozens of bots running through elven village and in other areas posted on these very forums - running the same pathways. Botting was so safe it was almost considered legal on official for a loooong time. I'm not trying to be rude but youre way out of the loop.

    No but they can use hwid. Better then nothing ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I forgot to mention above. There are popular scripts out there for quests that bots have been running for weeks. You can set in certain areas of towns and watch huge bot parties run the exact same pathing over and over through town to gatekeeper lol. Again, these bots have been running for weeks and have been reported hundreds of times! Maybe close to a thousand. A simple algorithm could detect people using these free scripts, running that same pathway. But we can never expect that from the gms in game, they don't even login to manual ban. Same L2 story since forever.

    I know because I do. We've been having this discussion since 2005. If they wanted to ban the bots, they would use delayed ban. Period. And adreno, which is what the vaaaast majority of botters use, didn't have a delayed ban - they were immediate. Btw, wow's anticheat, warden, has defeated almost every bot out there. Its been that way for a long time. You can literally sell tokens from blizzard store for more gold per dollar than buying from gold seller. Having good antibot protection isn't something new at all.

    Clientsided anticheats are mostly limited in scope by privacy cyberlaws. I cant chime in on how they work or anything but you can find out more by googling. https://scholar.google.com/ Though the truth is, it's not hard to detect the popular bots dude. They just don't want to ban them and spend money on proactive anticheat. Otherwise they would have delayed bans for sure. Meaning, once a popular bot was detected, they wouldn't initially ban the user immediately. Instead, they create a log of users botting for a week or two then ban them all in one strike. Instead, what they have been doing here is banning them immediately. Which in turn, gives the bot developers and users time to deactivate their bot so the app wont open / warn other users, saving the vast majority of the bot users from getting banned.

    Yeah its pretty carebear. Noob friendly though. Ive met a ton of people new to L2 on this server.
  7. Spellbooks

    Hes saying this version of L2 is casual compared to other versions of L2 Mixa. Hes not comparing L2 to other games >.<
  8. Absolutely ridiculous. I'm really disappointed at how we were pulled along for weeks, by statements like "rates are being investigated" etc. Like there was any chance at all they would change for the better. Now we are being funneled to the same areas with increased rates like themepark mmorpg players - killing the L2 vibe. This classic server sucks tbh. Its only saving grace is its a new server and that's feeling is starting to fade fast. This will be my last week here unless staff steps up their game and starts proactively addressing our concerns in an upfront honest manner.
  9. @Hime @Juji Fix solo areas too! Only fixing small percentage of areas was not right and is unbalanced for majority of players....
  10. Or you can just play L2 somewhere else.
  11. Congratulations, you successfully turned L2 into a themepark mmorpg. Very sad to see you fixed a very small amount of zones / mobs.
  12. What about spoils only giving 1x item and are already like 10x lower chance than Europe?!!! Those areas listed are not the only areas with messed up spoil rates. Not even close... Partisans for example >.<
  13. 500++ QUEUE FOR VIP 4 ???

    Im honestly surprised there are not more bots. The top D weapon event reward appears to be worth about $100 in rmt…. and drop pretty often. NCsoft trolled themselves.....
  14. Best Trio with Spoiler!

    Also, whatever you do, don't take BD or SWS in BH triple box setup. They are overrated for small party leveling unless you plan on using them only out of party later and want to level them now. They are not better than SE for one. And only worth in DD PT if you have 3+ DD and use active for hex. BH+meleeDD+buffer is better than BH+BD+buffer or BH+BD+DD You can also use PP instead of SE. It just depends on what you prioritize. With PP you can level much faster but BH will be out of mana a lot and you will need to buy vamp stews. With SE, you will be much richer but kill slower - and might want haste pots depending on what youre killing and respawn rates of mobs.
