Now imagine this... so many of the little annoyances we have are do to SE fighting RMT's.
Here is what I've concluded: Bots are setup up out of obvious view, fight mobs all day and collect shards.
The RMT's take the shards and sell them in the wards dirt cheap, hence, a big source of income for them.

With this theory in my head, I saw a bot in a cave the other day and decided to do my duty and report the bot.
I opened up a ticket and filled it out, and even titled it "Bot in Cave".
I gave the necessary information, including name, server, etc.

30 minutes later, I get an auto-reply from the GM's saying that bots/RMT's are not handled in-game.
It provided me with a long link to some website that I would have had to write down, go to the site, navigate through the site and then report the bot.

My jaw hit the ground!!! I'm not one for complaining about this game, but...
Looking at it from another perspective, SE is probably handling an insane amount of reporting due to bugs, issues, and a slew of other things, so they had to have a way to outsource some of the problems to make things manageable.

Still... let's just say I was rather surprised.

Exactly what i encountered! This is ridiculous they give u the support and report botter function and after going thru all the time to report i am told that i have to do it out of game at some webpage?!

Saw someone in beetle cave near Bloodshore, besides autoattacking on the mob, he could run up across the ridge!

SE didn't outsource just its sent to the special task force. SE created it 2 years ago to combat rmt. Bots are rmt. Not really stupid, but should be able to report it in game o well. You can't report it in game on ffxi either.
Beats Aion though. You gotta e-mail gm as they don;t talk to you in game. And if you report harassment you get "pics or it didn't happen"

It is pretty amazing they basically destroyed the enjoyability and playability of their game with RMT countermeasures, but can't implement a report system, or hire a few people and/or create program features to observe and ban the blatantly obvious cave bots and giant clone RMT farm parties that go untouched for weeks on end.

@ furia
please stop spreading BS. You gotta go to the site and report it to the STF. Most mmorpg do, do that. Rarely i seen an mmo that allows you to report a bot on game. GM only handle harassment or being stuck. They act like Mods basically. Maybe instead of coming here make a suggestion to SE about having an in game report button.

Anyone trying to defend SE on this is a moron.

On Istory there is a line of about 7 botters afk fishing IN LL in the middle of the town, and theyve been there for over a MONTH in the exact same spot.

SE doesnt seem to give a crap about botters (at this point in time) and theyre doing an absolutely horrendous job at countering it.

**** go to Camp Emerald moss at ANY time I guarentee youll see at least 10 botters there.

SE just doesnt care
