Mining bot teleport hackFollow

#27 Sep 23 2013 at 12:52 PM Rating: Good
1.0 had a more involved minigame. For example, in botany you "aimed" your axe along an axis before swinging.

Great in concept, horrible in execution. The switch to just straight up percentages is a welcome one.

How about we don't ask them to pull out the nerf bat. Ya know, they can combat bots without slapping inside-the-park home runs and subsequently ******** over legitimate players.

I found someone doing this, marked em and recorded them, uploading it to youtube now.
Also, where should i post this also to increase getting SE's attention on this?

And another one in the same zone. Seriously, SE needs to get a handle on this.

[Tedious, Repetitive Setup and Slow Menu Navigation] <------------------ [Other Things] ------------------> [Click the Node to Loot It]

I'm thinking there could be other options between "Bad Minigame" and "Little Conner's First Script Circumvents It."

Reported the same guy 7 times in a 2 weeks period, logged in today, saw him mining + teleporting around. actually been reporting at least 6 different botters, and have been checking to see if they are still around, guess what? they STILL ARE. Can't wait for them to ruin the economy on my server /sarcasm

Hopefully it wont turn out as bad as wow, its one of the reason I left the game >_>

SQEnix bans them all in one go, and collects data for a while, that way they can link the seller accounts with the actual bot accounts, as you can guess the farmers go through great lengths to hide the gil they make. I just wish they did gil reversals, no one would buy if the gil they got was confiscated after the seller was banned, they need negative gil too, ***** those buyers.

Saw a guy today teleport hacking that I thought looked familiar. Then I remembered, I reported him during launch week or at worst the week after.

I did fishing in ffxi and rather enjoyed the interaction i had to do to get the fish/sea monster out of water. Having the ibisu fishing rod certainly made things much easier but you still had to do the minigame to get the fish/monster out of water. I fished for the map to spawn the bcnm to get ahold of the two mercurial weapons that were level 50. People bought them simply for the fast skill ups you got while bashing boyahda tree crabs with them.

Alternatively I leveled cooking and sushi handling while leveling fishing. I made a tidy profit off sushi's this way :)

I haven't tried the fishing in ffxiv yet. Would be interesting to see if they have something similar to break the tedium of fishing over longer periods.

I'll tell you this: I saw someone bot-mining not two hours ago, and when someone asked how the person could move to the nodes so fast while stealth was on, someone replied "you can sprint while in stealth", and passed it off as being "normal". Smiley: disappointed

Truth is, outside of people not exactly knowing how to report someone, there are those who don't even believe that there are exploits going on in the first place. And indeed, education is the best defense and deterrent, but with a lot of misinformation and nonchalant behavior goin' around, it's going to be a lot more difficult to cull the problem before it becomes too much of plague...

While I could understand them working on a fix behind the scenes, not actually squishing the violators now is sheer and utter laziness on their part. You don't need any kind of fancy program to confirm this **** is going on. Just go to the mining points and watch them zip about with reckless abandon. All it would take is seriously one intern to just visit each cluster for a few moments and watch. Then ban the ************** Tracing the flow of goods/gil is inconsequential to this process, as all trading should already be logged (ESPECIALLY GIL). And naturally, if the RMT aren't getting products to sell, they can't make gil from them, anyway.

Also tempted to lump summoners with pets auto-attacking mobs into this camp of cheese. While a "legit" mechanic, I've seen some just standing in generally safe camps, presumably with macros set up to act only on their pet's target as it engages things as they spawn. AFK and come back to free loot. SE should've learned from this in XI when people were AFKing at chigoes and coming back to gobs of geodes, seals, blood, and even some EXP.

^This as well. Reporting something is quite a process and is itself a kind of deterrent to keep us as the player base only using this feature when we've had enough or absolutely reached the limitations of our patience.

Reporting these bits does do something though. The dev teams are accumulating said evidence to do a server wide sweep all at one time. That's their MO. Gather the intel to the point that its incontrovertible and -then- move.

Well then, i'm glad my recording and reporting are worth something after all. They need to do a hard sweep, 2 of the bot miners i've recorded and reported are still doing it. If these are indeed hacked accounts, i hope they get them back, but until the true owner of the accounts can get control again, the accounts need to be locked down. I only say this because all they are going to do is move all the gathered mats from the hacked account to another one.

I finally witnessed it myself but it wasn't a mining point(don't have it leveled). It was a vegetation point in central shroud. XD

Side note, rather SE will take action or not is up to them, but I just reported an army of bots/RMT chars that I spotted by the Delivery moogle in the Ruby Road Exchange in Ul'dah. There were so many that it appeared as if they were duping new chars.
