Give them Hemoroids!

Post by Flaffen » Fri Mar 13, 2009 7:40 pm

If you want to avoid botting, i'd recommend doing something about leveling. I just wrote a post about this, so you should check that out (this could remove some of their motivation for botting). Also you could try to hinder them in botting by adding a simple debuff. If you stand still in the same spot for more than 30 seconds, you should be afflicted by a debuff called Hemoroids, this increased the damage you take by 1, and it could stack up to X amount of times. This would make botting pretty hard since the longer you bot the more damage you take, eventually leading to your death. Or people would have to bot in RLY low level places where there is no chance of getting killed, wich would severly remove the xp gain from botting. If you do something about leveling, since it becoms super boring after a while, and add this debuff, i think it would reduce botting by a large amount.

I still don't think lvl'ing should be made any easier. Expect it to be hard after you reach past lvl 70.

As for the Hemoroid idea, that would be pretty good. Except it would anger a lot of campers, lol. :lol:

Campers are not botters indeed. By the way, if you think leveling is hard now, ask the old timers how it was before. The idea is not really doable i think. Original, but not doable.

Back in the days I spent a week leveling up to 20 or something...

Although this might take away most bots, it's still easy to bypass by making a bot that moves from left to right. In the end only the campers will be affected by this, and the warriors who seek health-recovery by not moving.

What's wrong with standing still to seek recovery and attacking at the same time? a characterbuild with max vit can easily multiple targets like that. It's not just camping, it's simply the way that that kind of build attacks best.
