Shamless self-promotion, but discussion worthy nonetheless.

Tried everything I could to stop and MPK 'em, but they're standing right out of range of the treant in the back (he deaggros if you try and move him close).

Reported them 3 times in the last couple days and nothing. This is on Excalibur.

Lol someone thought I was a bot yesterday while I was fishing. I had only FC chat on my log and not really paying attention till I seen a fate pop, and I went into sneak mode. Seen them standing there emoting me, so I fliped back to reg chat and seen them telling me Ive been reported. Hope I dont get banned, or suspended for fishing. I do not bot nor do I think botting is acceptable, but not everyone who is fishing, mining, or harvesting a botter. They might not be paying attention or figured out where to stand to not aggro as in my case outside of the fate that pops there.

I had the same problem. I'm on a PS3 and with the controller i don't even need to be in my room while fishing. I just turn the background music off and anything else that is not needed. Apparently people were trying to see if I was a botter.

It is a problem, i cant deny that, but i havent reported anyone for weeks now. Used to be every tell or shout got a report flung at them, same with every miner who warp-hacks...

But nothing gets done about it, and it's just so disheartening. Weeks later the same people are still around, only now the shouts have died down, and the tells have gone up with a factor of 10.

It needs to be stopped, but i just cant be bothered with it anymore when SE doesnt seem to care either.

That's because reporting "fish botters" is the closest people can come to the Salem Witch trials, short of going to your house and burning you at the stake. I have stuff filtered out also because...well...thats why they're there. Doesn't make me a bot if I'm just ignoring you. Smiley: laugh

That's pretty mental!

I'm at the stage where I too am sick of reporting RMTs, it just seems constant. :(

Yeah but these guys are for sure bots. You can't do that for over 3 days straight and not die of an aneurysm, or something.

Also look at their names, lol.
