Gil-Seller Spotted!Follow

#1 Oct 12 2010 at 11:49 PM Rating: Good
On my way to a leve I stopped in Camp Black Brush to spot an oddly named character. I started watching him and noticed he just stands there, doing some kind of spastic thing with his head as if he's cycling through the playernames that get near. Right now that's it, that's all he does.

Screenshot


Talking to a few people it appears he's been sending out an automated /tell with a gil site. Either SE muted him or there's an error in his script. Either way it's kind of funny watching his head doing some kind of spastic movement. This is on Besaid by the way.

The reality of gil farmers.

LS less, lv1 gear, same races/faces, similar names, full PT.

*laughs* They were pretty easy to spot before. It looks like bad names will be one of the biggest parameters this time around. Or the LS they join. lol

Saw one on Lindblum last night on the way to Drybone. Name was easy to spot since it was just Fdhg Fhdghd (or something like that). SE needs to ban them due to having unrealistic names.

I'm not saying they don't exist, but for the most part, I have not noticed any gil sellers or bots to ruin my experiences. Aion, on the other hand, was rampant with them even on day one. The differences is night and day. At least SE got this right.

Nooo, I wouldn't want SE to ban those names.. at least we can differentiate them from normal players now, allowing us to easily track them and record their spastic movements.

Just wondering does "dghgdsh" look like "Steve" or "Jennifer" to anyone.

Seems to me every single moron at SE could spot these people even if they don't speak English or French or German.

Name a character *** Clown and see how long it last.

Did anyone else notice that there's only one male Lalafell among an army of females? Perhaps there's more than just gil-selling going on here?

I think to answer those GM messages you have to go under Support in the Menu, it should be right above Log out (IIRC).
