Regardless of the brutal beating you just gave the english language, GM's can't ban people out of the blue. GM's are more of customer support with small technical problems and reporting harassment. The Special Task Force (STF) takes care of the problems you want and are a separate team. The STF handles all cases of RMT's and bots, GM's do not. The most GM's do about botting are fishing bots.

I think the next question should be...WHY do GM's have so limited power to help us in game? I know that this is how it is and it is working as intended...but why don't we have someone in game that can deal with situations quickly? Would it be such a horrible thing to have GM's around that could ban people for obvious offenses like this? If we can see people cheating and being malicious and botting, why can't they employ someone to fix it quickly?!

GM's can immediatly ban cussers and harrassers. my question is why cant they do anything about serious offenders. aka ive seen ALOT of bots in caves

You need to report that sort of RMT activity to the Special Task Force.

Using foul language is not a banable offense, for one. If you don't approve of the language, there is a language filter that will help limit the amount of swear words you see in chat. Second, the reason why GM's cannot ban people like that is: Just because you believe/think they are a bot, does not make them a bot at all.

The person in question could just be ignoring you completely because either they don't speak the same language, or you yourself are harassing -them- in attempts to try and figure if they are botting or not. They don't have to respond to you or your attempts of communication, but they will have to respond to a GM if one contacts them. So if you suspect people of botting, just report them and be on your way.

I would personally ignore people and/or blacklist them if they were standing there constantly asking if I were a bot or not.

i know that what im saying is why is it so eay to get somesone banned for calling u a finkg noob yet so difficult to get the REAL problems banned


if you ask mr it should be completely backwards. in ffxi we could call a gm on a botter why cant we here it makes no sence.. i for one am not jumping thru their hoops to get a rmt banned when they could be more like ffxi and make it a simple gm call

Just call a Gm and say the person is harressing you by killing you with monsters? Which is not part of the game's design.

They ban those people in FFXI :)
