Bring back looping macro

Recommended Posts

Let's face it, NCsoft is not removing bots and grinding is getting bored, so bring back looping macro back, so sick of using alt-tab to invite buffer, BD, SWS, and then switching back to main.

Split screens? Invest in 2 monitors? Play at a higher Resolution? I ran 7 clients on 3 screens. Looping macros will result in many players leaving.

seriously? more people will leave? they already killed the game and grinding is just too much, and fyi I do have 3 monitors 2 PC and 6 clients running, looping macro will make our lives easier thru the grinding fest, unless you are using Adrenaline.?

I don't violate eula, and wouldn't tell anyone too. though turn off decrease performance and it won't slow down your other clients. Frankly I had an invite macro set up with delays, and just moved the mouse when tabbing was to much. for the other clients grab the other keyboard + mouse and repeat. It sounds like you just have a crap set up and want to make it easier without effort. I played with 2 keyboards on my lap and one on my desk + on another desk the other mouses and I would spin when needed. Though if you have it set up properly this wouldn't be an issue.

Looping Macros is soft botting. I never used looping Macro's and frankly that's going to sink the nail in the coffin for a lot of people. Imagine those that are staying and paying because looping macros are not a thing, those people would leave and that would gravely hurt profit for NC. What you are asking for is the same as live, and this is "classic."

Keep crying Wolf.

This is classic? keep lying to yourself, this is nowhere near classic with all the crap they did to us ( adena drops, P2W items, no level cap and more), soft botting? that made me laugh, there are bots EVERYWHERE!!!

Hence the " ", Honestly I agree they butchered this version, though there is not point in going all out, they will lose their remaining client base. The way I see it, they have a looping macro version already in effect and its on Live. They are currently offering this loop free version, though still its not what most of us want.

Not having looping macros and watching botters outlevel them was the final nail in the coffin for VASTLY more people than would quit because of something so minor as looping macros!!

See I can make unsubstantiated statements too :P

Personally I believe that fishing is far closer to "soft botting" than macro loops. Fishing is vastly safer than trying to run looped macros. Fishing is far easier and quicker to setup and you know unless the server blows up your character will have advanced some every time you check.

 

The reality is people are tired of seeing botters everywhere running with what appears to be impunity (some are getting banned but there are just tons of them).  After all the crap Ncwest has pulled I just don't see looping macros as something that would generate much real outrage. Obviously some people will be against it and some of them will use alts on the forums to try to bolster their case. That's just how things go in a free to play game that is pushing into p2w territory.


As for me over the last few months I bought 4 SFF computers off ebay to expand my desktop setup to 7 total desktop machines. I run three clients on the main computer and one client each on the second/third systems with full keyboard/mouse. The 4 SFF are controlled with wireless keypads to save space on my desk and run one client each. All four SFF are also hooked to a singular monitor, keyboard and mouse via an IOGEAR GCS24U.
