One thing I would like to see in FFXIV is for them to make it way more difficult or impossible to bot.
Admittedly I used to fish bot in FFXI. It was a way to avoid the massive grinding. I didn't like doing it, but felt it became a necessity because of the massive inflation in the game. I would like it if SE could just make it impossible to bot. If no one could do it, inflation wouldn't be so bad.
One idea would be to use the "Captcha" technology. If you don't know what that is then google it. For example, everytime you defeat an enemy that can drop something rare, then a "captcha" appears and you have to fill it in before you get the drop. Or for fishing and crafting, when you fish something up or produce something you have to fill in a "captcha".
I know that might get annoying, but it is a way to reduce RMT and reduce inflation. It wouldn't eliminate it, because you could still have human factories that could fill in "captchas" and make gil to sell. But at least instead of having 1 human that oversee 10 bot controlled characters, they would have to have 1 human control 1 character.
I also thought about just making it so that you can't trade any items or gil with other players. That would eliminate RMT, but it would severly impact team play. You wouldn't be able to share items with your friends, or let a friend borrow some gil.
Anyone else have ideas for preventing RMT or botting for FFXIV?
