to solve a pk-scam problem, just add a flag after losing your karma, as in old time. And everyone will be happy

first of all they should remove level gap influence on karma, so if you kill low level flagged character you get karma just cos he is low level, that is one abuse point (i have been told so , not tested)
Secondary - replace item drop from pk with jail, you get 5 karma - you get teleoprted to jail for x hours, you cannot pk , after getting out of jail you need to do quest to clear karma , or use nc shop for that, and everyone is happy

nobody likes to drop items, NOBODY LIKES THAT MECHANIC, except people who abuse it

its about at least 3 bugs, not a part of the "macro mechanic", these bugs persist no matter macro or "on hand"

- Bug1: the player can get karma without PK, if kill some pet. Its simply not right: you suppose to get PK AND karma, not only karma.  The result: when you kill someone in karma with 0 PK, you get karma AND PK :)))) Its not right: when you kill someone in karma, you not supposed to get karma+pk, you supposed to get reputation !!

- Bug2: You hit karma-player, when you target a mob and use AOE skills with target. You dont hit flagged players in the same situation. Karma or not, its PC not NPC, so that is 100% BUG.

- The result: If you kill someone in karma, you NOT supposed to get karma+pk, you supposed to get reputation !!

The combination of these 2 bugs lead to the horrible consequences: lot of players, putted in illegal karma and dropped / scammed.

 

This, in combination with NCSOFT full absence of support, lead to 1-2K less players and lot of unhappy ppl

While I do agree that this is indeed a bug that they are exploiting the solution is 100% obvious.

Stop macro botting. Easy fix.

& this was so avoidable. Perhaps a refresher quote from Draecke is in order ??

solution is simple, play the game as it is supposed to be played as per Korean game design aka Live with macro's as support to make the grind easier and not 24/7 AFK ;)

Macro system is legal, bots are not, remember? There are lot of botters unpunished as well, not only scammers, but its not the point of this discussion.

 

The BUG have nothing to do with macro system. You can be putted in ILLEGAL KARMA until play active by the same way..

yea,
the best and simplest way to solve is to disable the macro system and leave only the bot`s working and everything is resolved in NCWEST xD.

Spirrow: Okay, but even they do that.. What? And until when? Until the next BUG with ZERO consequences for abusers?

ZERO in game Support.

+

Zero transparency.

+

Zero GM's forum activity.

= GMs - encouraging and protecting scammers.
